'Non existent' – Everton fans starting to despair about one player after display v Swansea
Everton and Swansea earned a share of the spoils in the Premier League game on Saturday, but Everton fans were not happy.
It was a poor first-half from the Toffees who were fortunate to be ahead after a Kyle Naughton own goal just before the end interval deflected in off the Swans ace.
And they couldn’t hold off in the second half in the face of one-way traffic from the side that’s struggling at the wrong end of the table.
Big Sam opted to go with a defensive midfield pairing of Idrissa Gueye and Morgan Schneiderlin, and as a result the Toffees lacked imagination and were bereft of ideas.
What’s worse, big-money attacker signing Theo Walcott was awful.
The former Arsenal attacker became an instant hit on Merseyside when he scored a brace against Leicester City in his second game for the Toffees, but apart from an assist against Stoke, he has done little since to impress the Blues faithful.

It was a similar story against the Swans and Everton fans are starting to despair.
Here are the best reactions from Everton fans to Theo Walcott’s performance:
Would be interested in taking a count of how many times Walcott has received it on the wing and spun it out of play with his first touch

Walcott is gradually turning into Mirallas with every game he plays for us.

You’re not going to win away games if your forward players can’t hold the ball up. Our forward players can’t hold the ball up. Bolasie is the one that gets the most stick, but Walcott is equally useless.
