Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the performance of Tim Howard against Stoke City at home on Monday afternoon.
Howard was in goal, as the Toffees suffered a stunning 4-3 defeat to Stoke at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
The USA international made two saves, and his performance between the sticks left much to be desired.
The 36-year-old has made mistakes on a number of occasions this season, and it seems that Everton fans want him dropped from the team (see comments on Twitter below).
Howard has been on the books of Everton for almost a decade. The goalkeeper initially joined the Toffees on loan from Manchester United for the 2006-07 season and thereafter made the move permanent, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.
With Everton struggling defensively and dropping points they should not, the fans appear to have lost patience with manager Roberto Martinez for persevering with Howard, who has featured in all 19 Premier League games for the Merseyside outfit this campaign.

To lose yesterday after scoring three goals is shocking. Drop Howard and give the defence a bollocking and work on them all season! #EFC— Kyle Goodfellow (@kgoodfellow1) December 29, 2015
@DWiggo the only one safe is howard.. he is the expert in avoiding catching situations.— Michael Oskoui (@efc_skoui) December 29, 2015
#EFC defense is straight garbage. Sign some actual defenders and a good GK. Tim Howard needs to go.— Aaron Smith (@notaaronsmith) December 29, 2015
Only thing that needs to change is Tim Howard staying at home on match days #EFC— Dale Hathaway (@dalehathaway) December 28, 2015

Honestly, how are there still people defending Tim Howard!? He's an absolute joke. #EFC— Leah (@Leah_Corner) December 28, 2015
Howard cannot start the next game, get Baines back and I can't wait to see Jags back at CB. Difficult month of football to come too #EFC— Thom Rawlinson (@ThomRawlinson) December 28, 2015
Not just Howard's fault today and this season. Surely it comes down to the guy who picks him no matter what every week? #efc— Toffee Weasel (@WeaselToffee) December 28, 2015
We cannot seem to keep a lead and we look so naive in areas. Howard terrible & Martinez hasn't learned from mistakes made at Wigan #EFC— John Murray (@MurrayBoxing) December 28, 2015
