After strings of abysmal results, fan of Everton Football Club are planning to stage a walkout protest against the club’s board during their game against Arsenal at Goodison Park on Monday night.
The toffees during the midweek fell to a 4-1 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool, with a cross-section of fans moving out of the stadium with the scoreline at 2-0, the anger and disappointment has been building steadily among supporters during a winless run which has seen the Toffees slip from the European places to just five points above the relegation zone.
There were also chants of ‘sack the board’ towards the end of the game and at full-time, while another supporter got on the pitch after the final whistle to remonstrate directly with players Anthony Gordon, Seamus Coleman and Abdoulaye Doucoure.
A number of Everton fan groups have now come together to collectively announce their intention to protest during the club’s next fixture, with a mass walkout planned for the 27th minute.
Everton will have gone 27 years without a trophy come May next year, assuming they fail to lift this season’s FA Cup.
A statement shared across social media read: ‘27 years without a trophy is unacceptable.
‘Show your feet on 27 minutes during the game against Arsenal on Monday evening and leave your seat.
‘Let’s show that the incompetence from the top at Everton Football Club cannot continue.
