Paul Merson comes up with a brilliant Men In Black comparison for Everton's Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martinez Press Conference Smiling

This might just be the best thing Paul Merson has ever said.

After a pretty good start to the season, with wins over Chelsea, Southampton and a big victory over Sunderland, Roberto Martinez's Everton have had a right nightmare recently. The Toffees have only won once in their last 10 games and have only managed to keep six clean sheets all season.

And the pressure is growing even more on Martinez after the pretty poor defensive performance in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea City. While Martinez seems to keep insisting that his side is playing well, one man is onto the Spaniard!

Yep, former Arsenal midfielder and current Sky Sports pundit, Paul Merson has well and truly got stuck into the Toffees boss, with a pretty amazing analogy which certainly made us chuckle.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Goals on Saturday, Merson got into a right rant about Martinez and how he seemingly just forgets how poorly they've played and reckons everything is alright by pulling out a really weird Men In Black analogy.

He might usually talk in riddles, but we've got admit that we think this is pretty brilliant from Merson and we absolutely agree... Plus if you get can a Men In Black reference on the TV, you're an ace in our books.

Everton fans will be hoping their side can get back to winning ways when they take on Carlise United in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday and in Premier League against Newcastle United on Wednesday.
