When you travel all the way to Kiev to watch Antolin Alcaraz defend. https://t.co/RP3tLuoWJr— Top Corner (@HITCtopcorner) March 19, 2015
Everton's 2014/15 has been a huge step back, but the one shining light had been their Europa League adventure.
The club's form had been impressive in the competition, unlike their inconsistent Premier League performances, which had finally been improving over the last month.
And then last night it all came crashing down. They blew a 2-1 first leg lead, defeated 5-2 in a terrible performance in Ukraine in which they were second best throughout.
There were no standout performances from a positive perspective, with players letting themselves down all over the pitch. One particularly dismal performer however was Antolin Alcaraz.
Alcaraz was at Wigan with boss Roberto Martinez, but has failed to convince Everton fans he is up to the standard required, and last night was a real low point.
While not helped by an inept performance from Phil Jagielka either, Alcaraz himself completed just 63 per cent of his passes, and made no successful tackles. A scant one interception was barely anything to give him credit for.
Angry and upset Everton fans ripped his display apart via social media, with comments even describing him as the worst player ever to feature for the club. Here is a look at the reaction...
Never ever play Alcaraz if Stones is fit #efc really poor decisions imho— stuart ditchfield (@s_ditchfield) March 19, 2015
Antolin Alcaraz couldn't get a job in Asda putting 'price lowered stickers' on food so why the f**k is he playing in this game #EFC— Dan the man (@DanC1878) March 19, 2015
Have never seen Alcaraz have a good game. Not really sure what Martinez has ever seen in him. #EFC— El Fresho (@eatenmyshorts) March 19, 2015
Defending has been really poor. Alcaraz just got beaten to everything that is being thrown at us. #EFC— Radityo Wicaksono (@Tyo_EFC) March 19, 2015
Alcaraz might just be the worst defender I've ever seen in a blue shirt #EFC— Shaun Young (@travellingshaun) March 19, 2015
