There are just two Premiership games during March, but there's no shortage of incident at Goodison Park.
The games are instantly forgettable for any Evertonian - a 0-1 reverse to relegation candidates Blackburn Rovers and then a 1-2 derby defeat, which sees Tim Cahill grabbing a consolation in front of the Kop.
On the first of the month, newspapers report that James Beattie has suffered minor facial injuries in an 'unprovoked assault' while celebrating his birthday in Birmingham after the win at Aston Villa.
There are ominous signs for Everton when UEFA announce that even if they do finish fourth, there may not be a place for them in the Champions League. They say: "At the request of the national association concerned, the UEFA Champions League title-holders may be entered for this competition ... if they have not qualified via the top domestic league championship. If, in such a case, the title-holders come from an association entitled to enter four teams for the Uefa Champions League, the fourth-placed club in the top domestic league championship has to be entered for the Uefa Cup."
Australian midfielder Tim Cahill is named Oceania Player of the Year for the first time. Cahill beat Middlesbrough keeper Mark Schwarzer and Parma's Marco Bresciano to the award in a vote of all the Oceania national federations. "Tim has had a wonderful season and is a deserved winner of the OFC player of the year award," says OFC General Secretary Tai Nicholas. Meanwhile, two of Everton's young stars, Anthony Gerrard and Iain Turner are allowed to join Walsall and Doncaster respectively on loan until the end of the season.
Everton and Middlesbrough are fined £8,000 and warned over their future conduct following the 'mass confrontation' between the two sides in January's 1-1 draw. It followed a challenge by Duncan Ferguson on Boro keeper Mark Schwarzer. A statement says: "The clubs admitted breaches of FA Rule E22a for failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion."
