They may well be more tolerant at Burnley, Palace and Hull but certainly not at those clubs who used to consider themselves 'big'. Read of recent displeasure voiced to poor at Villa Park and whatever they call St James' Park these days. And Spurs fans weren't much pleased until Christmas was over.
In my half a century of Goodison-going, it's never been any different. In fact, at the end of Tuesday's game, a lot of us were wishing they hadn't stopped selling those bloody cushions!

This last sentence really stands out for me.

This hasn't been a sudden thing as it has been a steady decline since early season which management have been seemingly unaware of or just not capable of stemming. They have won just 5 lousy games including those against Burnley and QPR which basically spells out how bad things really are. Relegation cannot be ruled out at this stage as Everton's form is worse than almost every team around them.
No team is big enough to avoid the drop on name and reputation alone but remember Martinez has done it with Wigan and it was glossed over due to an FA Cup win. The surge in last season's form when RM came in was just a fluke it seems and there can be absolutely no excuses this season, not even injuries.
These poor performances are reminiscent of some of the darkest days under Mike Walker, Gordon Lee and Walter Smith and even more so as it seems on paper we have a more talented squad than any of those managers ever had. No moves in the window and no move by BK could now spell disaster.
