Jeremy Brownpoodle, a well known exorcist from the west Essex region, has been commissioned to investigate the fiendish happenings - "We are all aware of the rumours about Everton and Satan Baines free kick wizardry, but these latest happenings suggest a further rise in use of the occult in the Everton team since Roberto Martinez arrived".
Speaking exclusively to our spiritual affairs correspondent, Brownpoodle illuminated the whole Satanic process for Hammers fans - "People think that there is just Satan, but in fact there are many demons each of whom has a theme to their trickery. While Satan is the Prince of witches and warlocks, Beelzebub trades in envy and gluttony, Lucifer is the dark prince that pedals excessive pride, while Belial is the inventor of evil things. It seems that Everton are behoven to many of these evil forces and their punishment is likely to be that they will serve as underlings to their neighbours at Anfield".
Brownpoodle has promised to go back to the very beginning and examine the theory that the source of the curse may have been the outrageous sending off of Ludek Miklosko in 1995 - a distasteful occurence that required the heroic Julian Dicks to occupy the goals.
This was later followed by the grotesque events around the Di Canio ‘fair’ play award, where our top striker was suddenly possessed and decided to forego the opportunity to stuff the Toffees so that the Everton keeper could tie his shoelaces up after they had tragically come undone mid-action!
And this season has provided yet more damning evidence of witchcraft or similar tomfoolery, with two bizarre and undeserved victories for Everton against West Ham…Not surprisingly, many Hammers fans have described Saturday's performance as diabolical!!!
