Martinez's exciting football continued against West Brom, leading to a 6 goal thriller. A 3-3 draw. However, Everton went 3-0 up with goals from Pienaar and Baines at half time the side should of seen the game out. Everton allowed West Brom back in the game with a double from Lukaku and James Morrison snatched the draw in the 85th minute. A very poor result in the circumstances.
Chelsea and Man City next left Everton with 0 points from the two games and conceding 11 goals. Martinez didn't expect to get anything from the games however 11 goals conceded is not good enough. The Goodison Park crowd are getting a bit etchy and are not happy with the side or their manager.
A long awaited win came with the game against Stoke at home. Signing Matavz scoring a late winner to send the Everton crowd into raptures. However, the fans are still not sure on new manager Martinez or his style of attacking football which allows many goals to be conceded.
The next 3 games, Villa, Sunderland and Norwich. The fans are expecting 9 points and everything happened except that. The attacking style continued against Norwich which led to 3 goals being scored, however Everton were wide open at the back and that allowed 4 goals to be conceded. From leading 3-1 this again is a very poor and disappointing result for the increasingly annoyed Toffees fans. Sunderland away was very much the same story, attacking football allowed the counter attack and Sunderland were 3-0 up in 10 minutes. The travelling Everton fans were booing their side's boss. Heitinga and McCarthy brought hope to bring it 3-2 but it wasn't enough. Another poor loss. Norwich topped off the poor form as Martinez trys a more balanced approach which back fires as Everton score no goals and still concede 2. The Board and the fans now want Martinez out and Banners are appearing in the crowd.
The next two games saw consecutive 2-1 wins against Wigan and QPR however the board had made their mind up already.
