Crystal Palace knocked Everton out of the FA Cup on Sunday, denying the Toffees a trip to Wembley next month.
Despite not finishing in the top six of the Premier League, Everton had a great opportunity to advance in the competition.
Frank Lampard will be enraged, however, as the Toffees lost 4-0 to Crystal Palace.
Morale was high at Goodison Park after the win over Newcastle, but we’ll be going into the international break in a bad mood.
The FA Cup is a great way for a club to make a large amount of money in a short period of time.

Adding Nathan Patterson and Vitalii Mykolenko would have done nothing to alleviate the financial fair play regulations that have been looming over the Toffees for some time.
Even though the FA Cup money wouldn’t have made a huge difference, even if it had, Everton would be ecstatic to receive anything in the seven figures right now.
If you look at the current situation, things aren’t exactly looking up for the Blues.
This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Moshiri, and it’s unlikely that he’ll get another chance like this in the near future.
