Live Real Audio Commentary from Radio Everton
Walter Smith finally went for the Radzinski - Moore partnership up front but it lasted barely 10 mins.

Radzinski was in action early on with a great shot that brought a superb save from Kelly.  But the effort cost massively as Radzinski picked up a groin injury that had him labouring badly; a patently unfit Duncan Ferguson came on in his place after just 11 mins.

Scrappy stuff ensued, with Everton showing little shape and looking tired.  So a goal conceded after 30 mins came as no real surprise... and the scorer?  Graham Stuart.

Another dreadful tackle by Gemmill came as a fright considering his yellow card for an equally bad one early on.  An absolutely dreadful first half with both teams playing awful football was a blessed release when it finally ended.  But what can Walter Smith do to change this?  Gascoigne and Tal??  Ahem,

But no changes at half-time for Everton, who were quickly pinned back by a Charlton team with blood in their nostrils.  Naysmith was one of many who were having a stinker.  

The nail was firmly hammered home in the __ minute when Jason Euell sprinted through the stretched Everton defence and fired home.  Walter Smith's belated response was to bring Paul Gascoigne on in place of Niclas Alexandersson.  

A blatant penalty for Everton was then turned down when Kelly missed the ball and went straight through Naysmith, but Barber ordered a throw-in.  Joe-Max Moore then created something from nothing but it was fractionally wide.

It wasn't all over though: poor defending by Naysmith let Konchesky in who volleyed home an excellent goal.  0-3.

An utterly dismal display overall sunk Everton to their fourth straight defeat, and an awful sucking sound from the lower places in the table.  It looked as if the blunt home truths spoken by Gravesen had sucked the life and belief out of the team...

Match Preview

Three tough matches and three tough results, as Everton turn in another dismal Christmas report card... But perhaps all that can change with the visit of Charlton Athletic to Goodison Park.

Thomas Gravesen limped off with an ankle injury just three minutes into the Boxing Day clash and is rated doubtful for the weekend.  Kevin Campbell, Mark Pembridge and Alessandro Pistone are also sidelined but Alan Stubbs could be ready to return after recovering from a thigh strain.

Duncan Ferguson is still some way off match fitness and a starting place, despite his late appearance as a substitute, but Danny Cadamarteri is back from a brief stint at Barnsley and could make a surprise return to the Blues' first team squad.
