Social media is a funny old space. Sometimes it is difficult to win.
Everton’s official Twitter account would have found that on Tuesday afternoon after attempting to raise the spirits with a throwback video to the club’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa in 2015.
There was plenty of slick football on display, but it simply reminded the Everton fans of everything that their team is not at the moment.
Under-23s boss David Unsworth remains in charge of first-team affairs at Goodison Park, although it is thought that there will soon be a breakthrough when it comes to appointing a new full-time manager.
Everton supporters could perhaps rival West Ham United fans when it comes to frustration at the moment, and a video which was supposed to raise the spirits had the opposite effect on Tuesday afternoon.
Twitter is very difficult to get right when things are not going great, and that has proved to be the case here. A selection of the reaction can be found below:
