Everton fans here in the Transfer Tavern had their head in their hands again following their third defeat in a row yesterday at the hands of Manchester United.
Yesterday’s 4-0 defeat was the fourth game in all competitions without scoring a goal, conceding twelve in the process. start things have turned sour quickly this season. Everton looked slow, lacking in ideas and forward action, some fans have likened it to an LVG era United type performance.
A lack of pace at the back and up front was the Toffees’ biggest problem. Our Landlord mentioned that it looked as if Everton had gone backward, despite spending over £140m in the summer transfer window.
Koeman’s playing down of any top-four challenge and surely things have gone too far already to make that a realistic aim, much to the frustration of our punters.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Everton fans reacted on Twitter to their team’s final 10-minute collapse.
Koeman needs to find a settled shape, win some games, build confidence and show us that he has a plan. These fixtures offer him that chance

Give Sandro & Lookman 90 minutes on the pitch and see what happens. Kenny instead of cuco. The sooner Coleman & Bolasie are back the better.

Everton: The only team to spend £100m-odd and get worse.

Nice of Manchester United to wait until Wayne Rooney left the pitch before they ran riot and humiliated Everton. Class.

Everton only two points worse off from same PL games last season. Plus we didn’t have fixtures fall how they have. Perspective needed #efc

A trait emerging of Everton getting a new manager full of positivity and excitement and within 2 years hes negative and playing targets down
