Under the Goodison lights a different beast usually appears, I've gone for a 1-0 defeat but we really can turn up the heat in these night games with the crowd full of ale getting the atmosphere to boiling point, wouldn't be surprised if we give them a lesson.
That’s the thing though, the crowd have been awful this season. Not that you can blame them, there’s not been much to cheer about. Just that the fans haven’t really supported the players, they just give them shit all game and are desperate to get on Schnederlein, or Williams or Allardyce’s back. It’s toxic as we thought we’d kick on this season and we’ve gone backwards.
Again, perfectly understandable but how does a quiet, toxic Goodison benefit the team? We take the piss out of Palace and their plastic ultras but they support their team, week in, week out. Too many of our fans with a chip on their shoulder; we win 3-0 tomorrow they’d be plenty of ‘it’s only fucking Leicester’.
