Everton 1 West Bromwich Albion 4: David Beckham should ignore David Moyes call

29 November 2010 12:40
Manager David Moyes has told David Beckham just to pick up the phone if he wants a loan spell at Everton.

But if the former England captain, 35, saw the 4-1 defeat by West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, he might decide it's better not to talk.

SLOW STARTERS Everton have a history of poor starts under Moyes and this season is no different.

They are 16th in the table, two points above the relegation zone and have won just three games.

Next up it's Chelsea away.

Seeing red: Stand-in skipper Arteta did not set the best of examples

DODGY DEFENCE Everton looked ponderous - especially Phil Jagielka - and West Brom's first goal was ridiculously simple, Paul Scharner rising unchallenged to head in a corner.

AT THE OTHER END Jermaine Beckford is having a rough time. Only Moussa Dembele and Frederique Piquionne have worse shooting accuracy this season than Beckford, who gets just 30 per cent of his efforts on target.

Everton's strikers have scored two league goals all season.

LEADERSHIP CRISIS In the absence of Phil Neville, the captaincy went to Mikel Arteta.

But the Spaniard set a poor example, being sent off for a stamp on Gonzalo Jara.

HE'S NOT THE 'MOYESIAH' Moyes looked tired and distant after the 4-1 thrashing.

There was none of the usual defiance or anger. Sections of the crowd voiced their disapproval.
