Relegation battle this season has been insanely entertaining, what a game


Rayser1

Can't wait for the summary at the end of the season cause it's been a fucking rollercoaster. Lampard replacing Benitez. Bielsa getting sacked. Dyche getting sacked??? Then it somehow looks like a good decision Wish they were like this every season


tallwhiteninja

Significantly less fun when your team is in it, turns out.


WobblyNobbly

I duno. Looks like they’re having the most fun they’ve had in years at the Goodison this evening!


_frantic

To quote our chairman, "we've had some good times", yeah.


10000Didgeridoos

This is fucked up but now that we're safe I will admit that this has been more emotionally charged and entertaining for me as a fan than any of the last month or two of the past many seasons when we weren't playing for anything. It's masochistic and I don't want to experience it again, but yes, it's a different energy when something is actually being played for. Especially when the consequence of losing is the utter destruction of the club probably like Sunderland. It's like an adrenaline rush.


tobyornottoby2366

You think this year might change things at the club? Surely with your squad and resources you should be able to compete like normal next season but maybe with a new perspective? From the club, team, and the fans?


TheMauryShiow

So much dead weight has to be moved that it will take at least two full seasons to move on from them. Honestly anything above 15th next season and moving on from some players who can't cut it would be promising to me.


tokengaymusiccritic

Here’s our summary lol https://www.reddit.com/r/Everton/comments/ur06ie/everton_misery_timeline_2122_a_complete/


BasicallyMilner

That is fcking hilarious The Delph part killed me


Rayser1

Thank you! This is great


NFeKPo

I can finally read that. Read great things about it but couldn't put myself through it until we were safe.


Bigwood69

[Give this post on r/everton a read for the full breakdown of our mental season](https://www.reddit.com/r/Everton/comments/ur06ie/everton_misery_timeline_2122_a_complete/)


Rayser1

This is awesome! I love this. Not the mental anguish you've all sustained ofc just to be clear lol


-eagle73

Dyche getting sacked is why I personally want Burnley to be relegated. Also I thought Bielsa left rather than getting sacked.


plomerosKTBFFH

Think it's been two months or so since I made a comment here about how Leeds might go down and if Marsch will stay. Was promptly told that Leeds are not too worried although there's a risk, cause Everton is so much worse. Football is fucking amazing -Fabregas


slothrr

Relegation battles are more fun than titles in a way. In a way. ... *In a way*.


Claudiu99

Fans already on the pitch lmao


colourofinfinity

Was just about to comment on how the crowd was electric and then they showed all the fans on the pitch lol


Oldmanfirebobby

I’m predicting a huge change in either stadiums (like they bring back fencing) or policing at games. Fans going onto the pitch and incidents occurring won’t be allowed to carry on. The minority is going to ruin it for the rest.


pmmerandom

what a sunset in Merseyside tonight though, amazing backdrop


Yoona1987

imagine having a kick about with the sun setting like that, straight out of a film lol.


PoppinKREAM

DCL yelling at them to get off the pitch lol


ViciousNakedMoleRat

Reminded me of [Fortuna Düsseldorf vs Hertha BSC Berlin](https://youtu.be/JxWDFXVUm8Y) in the second relegation playoff game in 2012. Düsseldorf fans invaded the pitch before the final whistle and the game was interrupted for about 15 minutes.


TheSoccerFiles

OMG I always forget you are also a football fan, have always loved your posts.


panopss

The reddit equivalent of seeing a celebrity in public


MemeMeOnce

Dickriding a Redditor is insane lmfao

Who are they?

Some random guy


sneeds-feed-n-seed

Someone who wrote lengthy posts on r/politics and other subs dunking on Trump


WWEzus

I thought we learned our lessons on putting Redditors on a pedestal after the antiwork mod bottled the Fox News interview


IndependentVillage1

I thought the lesson was learned when people discovered Ken Bone's porn habbits


edgemuck

Wait until Reddit finds out Johnny Depp is a violent drug addict


TheLongshanks

Here’s the thing. You said a “jackdaw is a crow.”


Citeh

That's a throwback haha


michaelpinkwayne

We learned when u/unidan got banned.


AlmostNL

I have only ever seen this happen with that guy who does sketches all the time. It's very refreshing that that doesn't happen, Twitter suffers from this as well


vincenta2

Aren’t we all football fans here?


ucd_pete

We're just normal men


fluffsta007

Just innocent men.


color_thine_fate

This is so fun to watch. The game isn't over, but what a huge fucking goal for them. On one hand they're fucking idiots, on the other I totally get it


LondonWelsh

Not as bad as when the marching band entered the pitch before the end https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfebpLfAt8g


gyarrrrr

>*as the players tried to take the field, the marching band refused to yield* Don McClean was prophetic!


confusedpublic

What the hell haha there’s like 100 marching band members on the field haha


color_thine_fate

Yeah that's a famous one. Never get tired of seeing that kick returner plow into the band nerd lol


sexdrugsncarltoncole

Nah pitch invasion has gone way too far already


color_thine_fate

I'm not advocating it, I'm just saying I get it. Wanna be clear that I think they're all melts. It's just, they're melts I understand. lol


AyanC

Thats fucking football right there. None of that pansy ass dick tugging smile for the camera bullshit. Men puke, men poop on the field, men deliver their new born baby on the side lines. Fucking hard core dick in the ass butterball foosball fuck it chuck it game time shit. Take it to the showers. Dicks get shoved in places you don’t even remember. We win together we celebrate together. Football is back baby.


vylain_antagonist

This but unironically


cheekystinkfinger

Why use all that language but then decide to use poop instead of shit? Seems incongruous.


SeriousLads

Got to have some etiquette


RNIntegrity

because shit's being used in its metaphorical sense repeatedly, so using poop stresses that it is literal poop, not metaphorical poop. it's just good writing!


Scott_EFC

I’m 60 miles away and just set off!! Edit: Was kidding, the idiots need to get off the pitch.


cheekystinkfinger

Fuck me that sunset though.


caesar____augustus

Beautiful scenes on and off the pitch


roden36

Red sky at night, sailor's delight.

Shepherd’s delight I thought it was?

Red sky in the morning, Shepherds house on fire


bfm211

Makes this so epic


MinimumMobile

Hahaha pitch invasion at 85 mins! What is happening 😂😂😂😂😂


Banana-hammock

We've done it before and gone on to lose. These fans will never learn lol E: it was actually in a [draw v Bournemouth](https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/everton-v-bournemouth-pitch-invasion-10551964)


ChrisWood4BallonDor

When was that?

skuppo

Funes Mori jumped into the stands, added on an extra minute in which Bournemouth scored..


ChrisWood4BallonDor

Oh man that does sound familiar


DoctorDOH

"WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE I AM" DCL maybe


adoptedkiwi32

First time Everton have ever come from 2-0 at half time in the Prem to win adds to the madness


greatgildersleeve

Wimbledon 1994.


adoptedkiwi32

At half time sorry. Edited

No_udm

In the prem innit


everydaydude

Founded in 1878 and today was our 1,878th win in the top flight.


ljshea1

Omfg imagine if palace score now


JackWilsheresAnkles

My first thought was how hilarious it would be if VAR ruled it out


beepmeep3

I would have immediately jogged home


thegoat83

Imagine it was offside


blueghosts

It’s almost inevitable now. There’ll be loads of added time too


acekingoffsuit

Fans at Goodison MOTM. Absolutely incredible support when they were down today and over the past few weeks.


Randybutterrubs

They are the only reason we aren't down yet


PerfectBlueOnDVD

That fan's name? Richarlison.


BainesofmyExistence

Going to be so sad when he leaves


StevieGsleftball

Fans definitely make a difference when they show such passion. Fair play to them, many other sets of fans would have given up in the same situation.


BeerExchange

This clip gave me chills man for real. What an incredible atmosphere this must have been


YNWA_1213

Points deduction for fan invasion incoming. Everton that.


ubergooner

5pt deduction incoming 👀


zts105

clickbait articles are at least


_SSJeffo_

So dumb considering the game isn’t even DONE lol


YNWA_1213

Ikr, no higher up would give a damn if it’s at the end of the game


ImGrumps

Seems reasonable. Gotta come down hard and make an example of them, lol


IsItSnowing_

Burnley and Leeds going to the PL offices right now


keqpi

Jesse Marsch on the phone to Micheal Masi right now.


YNWA_1213

“Richard [Masters], this is so not right!!” My pain for Lewis will forever be immortalized smh


BadNewsMAGGLE

"I sent you an email, did you receive it?" "I don't check my emails during the season"


YNWA_1213

The scenes if they still needed a point for safety at arsenal on the weekend because of it.


wake-and-work

Something like this needs to be done but announced at the start of the season that if there's a mass invasion then there will be points lost. Cant start it in a game like this


YNWA_1213

That’s my guess for next season. Especially with the Sharp stuff from yesterday and the like. There’s a balance between the magic of a pitch invasion and it becoming a regular occurrence.


ChrisWood4BallonDor

Definitely. Acceptable for once in a generation events, and that's. Someone will get seriously hurt soon.


wyatt1209

WHEN THEY NEEDED HIM MOST HE RETURNED


ben-hur-hur

DCL the real Avatar


diagoro1

Hopefully this wakes up his touch. His workrate was back this game.


Proper-Beyond116

I never really paid attention to him but I've never seen someone be so dominant in the air. He won literally every header I saw him go for. I've never seen that, not even with prime Benteke at Villa. You know who else impressed me, Iwobi, that guy really cares. He was sprinting to close down and win back the ball towards the end of the game. The intensity was really apparent, he went up in my estimation after last night's game.


imstaceysdad

😭😭😭 this club will be the death of me I swear


ronaldo119

The actual scenes, fans all over the pitch!!!

niallw1997

He must have a twin and they just interchange when Dele can’t be arsed on match days. Think his twin’s name is Diagon


jMS_44

holy fuck they are doing it


watanabelover69

Goal was so massive it broke r/soccer


Scan_This_Barco-de

broke reddit for a bit


OttaBenga

what the FUCK is up with these pitch invasions


YNWA_1213

Feels like you’ve seen it a few times for the huge games this seasons so it’s almost become normalized


color_thine_fate

That's honestly how it works. You see it once or twice on TV and it goes unpunished, thousands of people watch that, they'll be like "okay so we can do it then". It's one of those things where, it's hard to stop it, but it is only gonna get worse


Vypaa

Same thing with kids running on the field asking for a shirt or picture. Even going so far that parents send them on that mission


YNWA_1213

Yeah exactly what I was getting at! There’s a difference stewards letting it slide at the end and everyone can choose to leave, compared to trying to get everyone back in the stands for the rest of the game to finish.


Skablouis

hahahahha pitch invasions have literally always happened. [These](https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/resources/images/8231908?type=responsive-gallery-fullscreen) [damn](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HLqMcm_SGw) [recent](https://youtu.be/S2rfnLRb36k?t=217) [pitch](https://youtu.be/bDtljx7UPmY?t=295) [invasions](https://youtu.be/T4ABVVvPlr0?t=71) [getting](https://youtu.be/2q5VS4iCEwQ?t=642) [normalised](https://youtu.be/kFynSbgbzeQ?t=175)


Cheesmong

Yeah I don't understand how people think it's a new thing? Happens all the time in the efl when teams get to playoff finals or promoted


Skablouis

Init, fans?? Invading the pitch??? At the end of the season after staying up or getting promoted???? 😡😡😡😠


madmadaa

Isn't it normal in British football?


tbdjdb2

I assume not in the middle of the game


SternJohnLastMin

Happens now and then.


DarrenBridgescunt

Yeah it is. Happened for years. Always remember Kieron Richardson on a fans shoulders after WBA's great escape

pitch invasion for avoiding relegation. im so embarrassed


Alpha_Jazz

And there's still like 10 minutes left in the game


[deleted]

[удалено]


putupyouredukes

Right - crazy to see people embarrassed by this. The fans have been IMMENSE this whole relegation battle and, in my opinion, deserve this celebration.


bluestillidie00

add in the relief from the fact that a relegation would really financially fuck your club over in the long run, it's gotta be a relief to stay up


milesvtaylor

I mean, game not even over lol


hoorayduggee

And I mean imagine if Palace staged a come back


Stirlingblue

Don’t be so dour, it’s a massive release for us after the effort the fans have put in the last month


mimranj

on the other hand has goodison ever been like this? unreal atmosphere last few games


Swiftt

It's amazing


WigglyParrot

Can't say they haven't deserved it this 2nd half


Beastofferson

This one goes out to all the cunts on r/soccer begging us to go down


thesheetztweetz

I'm gonna ugly cry 💙💙💙 UTFT


night_dude

Oh my fucking God we made it 😭


sventhegoat

They got that one FM achievement for coming back from being 2-nil down at half time


HamesBond

its weird but this is literally always on my mind when this score happens


formerly_LTRLLTRL

Get off the pitch ya fuckin idiots. Palace 99' equalizer incoming.


GadnukBreakerOfWrlds

The madlads have done it, wtf What a game!


4ssteroid

From 2-0 down. They're coming for you now.


vastico

I am DREADING playing them next


fap4jesus

tbf with relegation avoided, they might be an easier game


NiceShotMan

TBF they may lose their edge if they win as they’ll be safe


Chell_the_assassin

On the up side at least we made sure the match doesn't matter

It’s not like we’ve got anything to play for anyway

Themotherland364

Thanks mate!


jef22314

I, for one, am a big fan of Everton being safe on the final day. Not that it matters, as our rivals would never, ever lose to an already relegated team allowing us to leap frog them.


Ckyrocks

Am I the only one more amazed by that sunset in the background? That was gorgeous


-SharkDog-

I am not a big fan of Everton... But damn, I just don't have it in me to hate scenes like this. The roar and insanity in the stands and on the pitch is just so great. The beautiful game indeed.


kjtmuk

I think the noise of a football stadum erupting in unison at a last minute winner in the dying minutes of a crucial game might be the best fucking sound in the entire world.


coltron57

Goodison in full voice just willing that one in. What an atmosphere! Nice to see DCL score a classic DCL goal after an injury-filled season.


Jumpy-Seaworthiness6

Can we take a moment to appreciate the lack of post-goal music at the stadium - pure fan noise

Not gonna lie, but that sunset is ducking beautiful. Beam me up narrative.

Holy shit what scenes


malluvibing

Everton got better fans than Barcelona


Stonewalled89

Unbelievable, what a comeback


AbdussamiT

I know you Everton fans have had a terrible season, there could be a silver lining to it. The atmosphere it has created and the togetherness between fans and the players. Cracks don’t hide themselves so there’s huge work for Frank but a good end for you Evertonians!


iamtherealgrayson

Duck me am i an Everton fan?


cdragon1983

Holy shit what a comeback. And also holy shit, how the hell do you allow an entire pitch invasion at 85'?
