Everton's shoddy form is making for a blue festive period for their fans - and they've vented their frustration at under-fire manager Ronald Koeman... by attacking his choice of Christmas tree decorations!
Koeman tweeted the following image on Thursday morning to celebrate the start of December.
. @RonaldKoeman Red Christmas Tree! Noooooooo! Ronald, it needs to be BLUE! Happy Christmas.— Daniel Tatarsky (@GrassRootsMgr) December 1, 2016

Oh dear. What a faux pas.
Without the red.
There's a good chap.

Koeman buckled to the hoard of angry Twitter users and presented his newly-decorated Christmas tree a couple of hours later, this time with a distinct blue theme.
@RonaldKoeman just when you thought he couldn't do anymore to piss you of and he does this— nathan (@Swannefc1) December 1, 2016
Koeman followed it up with a dig at the angry Evertonians who railed against his initial tweet, saying: "I think there are more serious problems in the world, than making a big story out of a Christmas tree!"
