Latest Goodison Park fan protest plans must take place to keep pressure on Everton owners

The UNBELIEVABLE Rise And FALL Of Southampton.

The past few months have seen numerous protests in and around Goodison Park, and the latest plans ahead of Aston Villa’s visit to Everton exemplify the need to maintain the momentum that has recently been generated.

Chants of “back the team, sack the board” have become commonplace on the blue half of Merseyside this season as Everton face a second successive scrap for Premier League survial, with Sean Dyche tasked with the job of maintaining the club’s top-flight status.

The visit of Arsenal earlier this month saw Everton fans meet near Goodison Park one hour before kick-off and march up to the stadium in a show of unity against the current regime.

A flag depicting majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright clearly illustrates the feeling amongst the fan base, while another stating “No Status, No Optimism”, a clever play on the club’s famous Latin motto, is a grim reflection of Everton’s current standing.

With the number of attendees reaching the thousands, the demonstrations simply cannot be ignored by the club, and the latest proposal by those orchestrating the movement is a superb way of illustrating the concerns of the fanbase.

Everton fans asked to bring children to Goodison Park protests

As shared via many of Everton’s fan-run social media channels this week, including NSNOW, fans are being encouraged to bring their children to the protest to demonstrate that the future of the fanbase is concerned about the future of the club.

While some fans have previously expressed concerns that protests prior to a game may negatively impact its outcome, back-to-back home victories against Arsenal and Leeds United would dispel this idea, with Everton recording consecutive home wins for the first time this season following the two largest demonstrations so far.

As the Manic Street Preaches once sang, if you tolerate this then your children will be next.
