Everton fans watched their team beat Newcastle 1-0 on Monday night.
The three points mean that the scousers move up to eighth place in the table.
However, it isn’t exactly the usual reaction to your team winning and the club moving up the table.
The Everton fans are overwhelmingly only dreaming of the day when Sam Allardyce leaves their club.
As for positives from last night’s match?
Apart from the victory, Everton fans in the comments below only appear to have got any pleasure from: the fact it was Newcastle who they beat, Pickford trying to wind up the visiting supporters, and the Toffees scoring from their only shot on target.
Everton fans comment via their top Grand Old Team message board:
‘Perhaps the only time where a win warrants a full boo at FT.’
‘God we are such a boring rubbish team to watch.’
‘Ha ha Rafa you knob!’
‘He’s such an overrated manager.’
‘He’s good to be fair, how he got a tune out of Newcastle is beyond me.’
‘True true I just can’t stand the sight of the big bellied fella.’
‘Only everton could win and it be so soul destroying.’
‘We were second to everything. Very lucky to win this.’
‘A win in a painful game to watch, great defending from coleman with last touch.’
‘Well that, unsurprisingly, was dreadful.’
‘Just shows how bad the premier league is this season.
How the hell are we 8th lol! We are absolutely shocking!
Can’t put up with watching rubbish like that every week. Big Sam still needs to be binned off!’
‘What a game of football.’
‘Lol Pickford hates Newcastle so much.’
‘Going nowhere with Fat head and wins like this keep him in situ.’
‘When a win feels like a loss …’
‘Ha well in pickford, shut those lousy tozzers up.’
‘One shot on target. Luckily it went in.
‘Big thank you to all the hostage negotiators, without them we would still be sitting through that.’
‘We’re an absolute insult to the game of football. A pure fluke of a victory where we played 0 football and got dominated by Newcastle at home.
Davies needs to be loaned out to a championship side. Lad has no forward ball. Same as our other midfielder as they have zero control of the midfield, no passing and no goals from midfield.’
‘What did Pickford do just before the final whistle that made our end cheer the loudest all game?’
‘Ran in front of the Mags and gave it a bit of large.
Would have looked an utter tit if Seamus didn’t make that last ditch header.’
‘Big Fat Sams 8th placed army. I guess a win is a win is a win. Nothing to shout about really but I’ll take it. Just 3 more games to go and we can say farewell to arl Bisto hips and the whole of this horrific season.’
‘Good defensive performance, shocking in terms of chances created though, only remember one shot on target all match. Won’t miss this garbage.
Schneiderlin played his best game all season, then goes off with a broken toenail the absolute surrender monkey.’
‘Fair play to Newcastle fans making pickford feel part of the game tonight, could have had his slippers on.’
The footy still makes your eyes bleed.
It`s very fortunate that there are so many teams somehow worse than us.
P45 time on Thursday and start properly planning for next season.’
‘Possibly our best performance of the Allardyce era, at least one of them, and we were still pathetic.’
‘Not a great performance, but a toothless Barcode attack helped get the result we wanted…’
‘What did please me was Jordan Pickford – when we scored he celebrated big style, and when the final whistle went, he celebrated big style again. Heart on his sleeve this lad.’
‘That was only cause the Geordies gave him constant stick all game, he came charging out of his goal once just to have go at them.’
‘To be fair, I think this was more of a gesture to the away fans who had been giving him stick all night due to his Sunderland days.’
“I hate Newcastle. They are crap. And 6 pts this season against them, the absolute sweaty pale belters.
Let them stay up. Even Barkley can score a worldy against them.’
‘That was a dire game of football. Luckily that Newcastle team were just slightly worse.
Quite an indictment on the league that that was two top half teams.’
‘Did anyone actually just watch that post match interview with Allardyce, on Sky?
Kill me now.’
‘Hopefully anyone suggesting we get Benitez listens to his interview – from a pathetic bitter fat Spanish Waiter.’
‘Please God don’t let finishing second in the also ran league mean Fat Sam stays for another year. One shot on target per game isn’t good enough.’
‘I suppose a win is a win but yet another terrible performance gives you no confidence for the future.
The manager must be watching a different game and has the cheek to say the opposition were negative.’
‘Fat Sam said we dominated Newcastle tonight, we did have 57% of the play but that got us 9 shots, the same as Newcastle, while we managed one on target they had two. We managed 4 corners while they had 6. We really did hand them a thrashing tonight.
The man is delusional.’
‘Fat Sam said we’re going in the right direction.
Aye, towards our own goal.’
‘Well, I’m glad that’s over.
Two very poor teams played a game that wouldn’t have looked out of place halfway down the championship, and that’s no exaggeration.
We beat the barcodes though which is good.
Highlights , Jagielka’s chance, Walcotts goal, Pickford shushing the Geordies which was boss and the final whistle.
Both these teams will be more concerned with relegation again next season than anything else.
Since I can’t make either of our remaining aways, I only have to endure 1 more game and I can forget about football for a few months, thank God.’
‘Two of the least ambitious managers in the league playing one of the least ambitious games of football i have ever seen…. the deadest of dead rubbers…’
‘We’ve beaten Newcastle 8 out the last 9 matches. It’s just like us playing West Ham, we don’t need to any good to get results against some teams.’
‘Pickford MOTM, for upsetting the horrible Geordies.
Glad to see Schneiderlin wasn’t useless this time.’
‘The Barcodes were on a good run…Kenedy is a good player, and Slimani was keen to impress, so we defended quite well. Whatever the lemmings say about Sam, he’s definitely not daft.’
‘Sam was a bag of nerves chattering the same rubbish, remind yourselves – one shot on target less corners than Newcastle!
Our passing is always in our own half – you could only hear Newcastle fans last night apart from when we scored with our only shot on target.’
