Liverpool put five goals past a struggling Watford side last weekend and Everton were expected to pile further misery on the Hornets at Goodison Park.
Everton were leading the Premier League encounter 2-1 until the 78th minute, when Watford proceeded to score four times to take all three points.
Josh King grabbed a hat-trick against his former club and Everton fans emptied Goodison Park ahead of the final whistle, showing their disapproval.
Benitez’s appointment split the Everton fans and now supporters of the Spaniard’s former club Newcastle are keen to see him up sticks for St James’ Park following the Watford result.
The Pride of Shields insists Benitez hardly spent any money at Everton in the summer transfer window and Newcastle will gladly take him back.
Nin also wants Benitez back, while Stu joked that the manager is trying to engineer his departure from Goodison Park back to Newcastle.
Lewis thinks the heavy loss to Watford means Benitez may be available again soon and Craig is wondering if Amanda Staveley will give the former Magpies boss a ring.
Everton are still just one point off fourth place following the defeat.

I just wonder if Amanda is going to “make that call” to Rafa Benitez to BRING HIM HOME! Do you want to see Rafa back in Toon? 📞👀 #NUFC #nufctakover #rafaout #rafaintoon #ToonArmy #amandastavely @ghodoussi
