Everton fans rejoice at news of the axing of Roberto Martinez
Everton fans have reacted with delight at news that Roberto Martinez has been dismissed as manager.

Wanted Martinez to succeed; enjoyed 1st season more than any since finishing 4th, but horrible decline since then and an overdue decision.— Matt Cheetham (@Matt_Cheetham) May 12, 2016
