I can't help feel that the club is missing a trick with this, in giving away tickets for free. Don't get me wrong ? as a fan who wants to see the final, I think it's a great move and something that perhaps epitomises the People's Club.
However I can't help but feel that they could have got away with charging £5 - £10, or if they will be opening up all the facilities as well to give the club some much needed extra revenue.
I live down south amongst many Spurs fans and I'm sure they would have opened the gates and paid normal match prices, hence their turnover and spending power.
Despite all that, though, congrats to the club ? I'm sure it will be a great atmosphere and a terrific alternative for those unable to secure a seat at Wembley.

I don?t think many will go anyway... and if they are charged, even less.

They can?t open up a full stadium and all facilities as it would then become an event needing police and facilities etc which would cost.

I applaud the club.

I?ll be watching on the big screen in Star City in Sydney. It's always good to watch a big game with a crowd. That?s why I think it's great that the club is screening it at Goodison.

I’llbe getting on a plane on Sun to get to Liverpool, catch some of the vibe and watch the Champions League Final at The Albert in Lark Lane on Wed night before heading to Wembley.

Once Everton has touched you, nothing will ever be the same.
