Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Heads up Blues, today’s news recap is a real exercise in masochism.

Everton were humiliated 5-0 away at Tottenham to ensure that they would not be pulling away from the relegation zone any time soon.

The manager admitted that what we all saw from his defence was what he was also seeing, and seemed quite irritated that most of his players were not giving even the bare minimum.

Lampard insists that though his confidence is being tested, he is still quite convinced the Toffees are not going down.

Captain Fantastic though was suitably chastened, putting in an incredibly inept performance, and had no qualms in accepting the Blues are squarely in a relegation battle.
