Everton players getting 'slaughtered' as Sky footage re-analysed - pundit

Alan Hutton has claimed Everton players “couldn’t win” with the fans following their 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday (12 November).

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender suggested Toffees fans would have been unhappy regardless of how the players behaved at full time.

As shown on Sky Sports after the defeat (12 November), a large number of security staff were required as the players tried to talk to the fans at full time.

Alex Iwobi threw his shirt into the travelling fans which was promptly returned by their unhappy supporters.

Hutton suggested it was a lose lose situations for the Toffees.

It is a hard one because either way you can’t win,” he told Football Insider.

We saw it a few weeks ago when fans were upset with the Rangers players for not going over to them after a poor performance.

If players try and walk away they are seen as not doing the right thing. But you go over and acknowledge them and you get slaughtered.

Players go over, try and apologise, promise to do better and you get slaughtered. Sometimes you just can’t win and it is really up to you how you want to proceed and deal with it. Either way it could be very difficult.

I understand from a fans point of view, we are just players at the time. But players are not going out and trying to play badly and get bad results, they are just in a difficult position and you need fans to back you to get out of it.
