Happy Halloween! It’s the time of year for ghosts and ghouls, but nothing is scarier than Everton’s current situation. But let’s try to stay light today. Get into the comments today and let us know what/who you think Everton’s players should dress up as tonight when they go trick or treating.

Here are a few of my ideas:

Wayne Rooney - That one long, straight Tetris piece
Sure, it’s useful sometimes, but more often it just doesn’t fit right and screws up the entire game.

Ross Barkley - Chewbacca
Last time we saw him, he was hurt. And when he talks, no one can understand him.

Ashley Williams - A cylindrical filing cabinet
No explanation needed.

Jordan Pickford - This cat
