The 1878s tweeted: “Make Goodison a Sea of Blue. We Are Urging All Blues Attending Goodison on Sunday to Wear Blue.

Let the players see and feel the atmosphere & show we’re all behind them. Kick every ball & win every tackle with them. All 4 sides of the ground wearing blue.

Also, bring your flags, banners & let’s get Goodison rocking & give it all we’ve got! Up the Toffees.”

Everton fan mobilisation could be key to survival

Everton fans have showcased their passion for the Blues on a grand scale in recent seasons, with coach greetings outside Goodison Park and Finch Farm.

The Toffees have been at the wrong end of the table for consecutive seasons now, and fan groups have mobilised to do whatever they can to help to club maintain top-flight status.

Indeed, the atmosphere inside Goodison Park has been electric for crucial games throughout the season, and a ‘sea of blue’ around the stands would be quite the spectacle.

The 1878s made a similar request for fans travelling to Molyneux last week for Everton’s fixture against Wolves, which ended in a 1-1 draw, as Yerry Mina snatched a late leveller.

Everton’s crucial fixture against Bournemouth is this Sunday at 4:30pm when Goodison Park will be a sea of blue.
