Adam McCulloch, Paul McParlan and Lyndon Lloyd, joined later by Paul Traill and then Andy Howard, review Everton's mind-numbing performance against Crystal Palace, the reasons for it and Sean Dyche's questionable selection decisions.

What has changed since the last time the Blues won in the Premier League and how much of it is to do with the burden of uncertainty created by the points deduction versus general fatigue?

They then look ahead to Brighton (A) and ponder whether almost the same group of players could come close to the scintillating display they put on at the Amex last season.

Thanks for the podcast. Yes, the game was shite but I agree with Paul T, there is no need to panic at present.

The lack of creativity when we are allowed the majority of possession stems in part from the lack of a creative midfielder who can carry the ball at pace and deliver a decisive pass or finish. That's why the defenders are so often reduced to playing it long.

Home games against opponents overloading the central midfield have been difficult for several years. Our home wins under Sean Dyche have come when we have kept a clean sheet. Clean sheets will remain key to our survival prospects. I believe that's why the manager will, and should, maintain the focus on defensive strength from front to back.
