Former Everton defender Michael Ball not happy with continued talk of second half Wembley display

The former left-back believes that Everton fans need to forget about that second half.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez’s future at the club has been cast into doubt recently as fans continue to vent their frustration at the recent performances of the club.

Everton have not won a Premier League game since the 1st of March and are currently 11th in the table.

A recent 4-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby did little to quell the disquiet and Everton were then dumped out of the FA Cup semi-final by Manchester United.

That game has however, for some, offered Martinez something of a reprieve.

Everton were excellent in the second half of the game and could have taken the win were it not for some missed opportunities and the brilliance of David De Gea.

But one former Toffee is not being fooled.

Michael Ball, who started his career at Everton and is a Blue himself, sent this tweet out to suggest the second-half performance at Wembley should not excuse the poor season at Goodison Park:

Everton have a big decision to make in the summer ahead of a big season in 2016-17, especially considering the fact they face a fight to keep hold of their best players when the transfer window reopens.

One decent second-half might not be enough to save Martinez his job.
