That might sound dramatic but suddenly there seems to be hell of a lot to fix and some big decisions to be made.
After reading Moyes' emphatic interview on friday insisting that Lescott won't be going anywhere for example, I was made up and I'm sure most Evertonians felt the same. But now we here that Lescott approached Moyes to try and get out of playing against Arsenal and then he does play and we get ripped apart. Do you cash in now then and get somebody who does want to play for Everton? And spend some money on new players like a new right side of the team? Or get the players together, re-group and carry on. Decisions Moyes has to make and fast, with not long to go before the transfer window slams shut.
Aside from the long term injured - Arteta, Jagielka, Yakubu and Anichebe - Everton had everybody available and we began the season with a much stronger squad than that which started against Blackburn 12 months ago.
The departure of Lee Carsley and several other squad members last year left us plugging the holes with the likes of Baxter, Gosling and Rodwell who were pretty much unheard of at the time. This time around, we've started with a much stronger available first 11 despite our lack of success in the transfer market, so there was every reason to be optimistic that we could avoid the poor start to the season which arguably robbed us of a top 4 finish last time around.
We might still enjoy a decent start and get some points on the board in the first few weeks - but a 6-1 thrashing is about the worst start we could have expected and Moyes has a fair few problems to solve in the coming weeks.
The defence - even with the inclusion of wantaway Lescott - was shocking. The same players who performed brilliantly the last couple of seasons were at sixes and sevens and just not doing the basics. Mark the opposition, stay tight, get tackles in. Don't drift off at set pieces and give them free headers. It's feasible that the Lescott situation has affected the back 4 and by all accounts, he told Moyes that his mind wasn't right for this game. But that doesn't excuse the errors made by Yobo, Baines and Hibbert. It was simply schoolboy defending from all four of them.
Lescott himself received a mixed reaction from the fans - a mixture of cheers and boos. He was indeed poor on the night though and you have to wonder where we go from here.
The defence were not the only ones guilty though. Infront of them the midfield were totally ineffective. Cahill, in a deep position, does not hurt the opposition. Osman, time-and-time-again looks out of his depth against the top 4 sides. Fellaini wasn't disciplined enough in his positional play. This all culminated in Arsenal and Fabragas in particular being given the freedom of the park. For one of his goals Fabregas was allowed to run 50 yards unchallenged before slotting past Howard. Disgraceful.
There were warning signs in pre-season, notably in the Blackpool game were a lower league team tore us apart at the back. There were fears that we'd get destroyed by Arsenal if we defended like that. But the next game against Malaga was much better and Lescott was back to give us a more solid look.
And then it all fell apart on day one. Fair play to Arsenal, they played some brilliant football but they had it far too easy.
After one game I now find myself swaying towards the "get rid of Lescott and get some new players before it's too late" camp. Which just goes to show how fickle we football fans are I suppose.
But regardless of what happens with Lescott, we desperately need reinforcements. A right sided midfielder would be my priority. Bentley has been mentioned but I can't see that coming off. Maybe another central midfielder to free up Neville to go to right back. And another center half regardless of Lescott going or staying.
Next up it's Sigma Olomouc at home on Thursday night. The crowd will need to be won-over again after this and it's crucial that we put these to the sword and get back on track.
