Said for a while now that the actual football is low down on the reasons i drag myself to Walton nowadays.
It's for the pints either side with lads i see all too infrequently.

Seems i'm not the only one:

Are Everton driving their supporters to drink?

The Toffees have endured a dismal season, sacking Ronald Koeman in October after a terrible start to the season and appointing Sam Allardyce a month later after the Blues flirted with a relegation battle.

And the season seems to be taking its toll, with a new survey showing that Everton fans consume more units of alcohol than any other group of supporters in the Premier League.

According to a survey carried out by www.FootballTips.com , Everton fans consume an average of 43 units per week, followed by fans of Crystal Palace (40 units) and Chelsea fans (35 units).

The study was “carried out in a bid to gain further insight into the lifestyle of fans of the beautiful game”. For the purpose of the study, 2,400 UK-based adults aged 18 or over were quizzed, all of whom revealed that they followed football and supported at least one of the Premier League teams. Respondents were split evenly over all 20 teams.

Initially, all participants were asked “How many units of alcohol do you drink, on average, in a typical week?” and they were given a unit guide for reference. Researchers then found the average for each team, with the results emerging as follows:

1. Everton – 43 units (on average)
2. Crystal Palace – 40 units
3. Chelsea – 35 units
4. Tottenham – 34 units
5. Man Utd – 31 units
6. Stoke City – 30 units
7. Burnley – 26 units
8. Man City – 25 units
9. Liverpool – 23 units
10. Arsenal – 21 units
11. West Brom – 18 units
12. Newcastle – 17 units
13. Swansea – 15 units
14. Huddersfield – 10 units
15. West Ham – 10 units
16. Watford – 8 units
17. Southampton - 6 units
18. Brighton – 6 units
19. Bournemouth – 5 units
20. Leicester – 4 units

Respondents were asked if they always drank alcohol when they watched their football team play (either on TV or in person) with 89% saying ‘yes’.

When respondents were asked where they preferred to watch their team play, 21% said either the ‘pub’ or ‘at home’. Of these participants, 67% said this was because it was easier to drink at these locations, compared to trying to get a drink at a stadium.

When all participants were asked if they smoked as part of the lifestyle questionnaire, it was found that Manchester United (51%), Liverpool (47%) and West Brom (44%) were the teams with the highest number of smoker fans.

Respondents who admitted that they did smoke were then asked how many cigarettes they had, on average, each day, with Manchester United topping the list again with 22 cigarettes, followed by Watford (20) and Burnley (19).

Finally, when all fans were asked if they were currently in debt, it was found that Liverpool had the most fans in debt (68%) closely followed by Southampton (66%) and Burnley (64%).

2,400 is not that widespread a demographic really is it.
Not even 10% of Goodison spread that over the Premier League
What's that 120 from each club maybe.
Sorry

Fucking hate shit like this me, because that'll be used as fact, when it clearly doesn't show anywhere near one tenth of the story never mind the whole story
It's the roll I way

Depending on how the target audience was selected for the survey, 2400 respondents is more than enough to get a statistically accurate result.

To gauge the alcohol consumption of around 400,000 people who go to the match each weekend?

A 0.5% sample group?
