Oct 27: Everton 1 - 3 Newcastle Utd After going into the break a goal down – Paul Gerrard gifting a goal to Newcastle when he took out Abel Xavier leaving Craig Bellamy to slot into the empty net – more pathetic defending in the second half consigned the Blues to another defeat. Nolberto Solano fired in a second on 47 minutes. David Weir powered home 2 mins later to set up the fight-back but missed chances - Tomasz Radzinski the chief culprit - meant that Smith's men - the better side overall - failed to make amends and Acuna rubbed salt into the wounds with a late third.

Oct 1: Viewpoint: Rounding another corner The 5-0 humiliation of West Ham was a fantastic way for Walter Smith and Everton to answer their critics, but they will have to deviate from history if they are to prove that the manager has what it takes to turn the corner permanently and keep the Blues in the top half. Previously under Walter, big wins have been followed by depressing form.
