To be defended by the Oldham Echo too, is seen in my eyes as tongue in cheek, and placatory pandering to please the RS following (minority,who acknowledge us) too.
As we are all too aware, the Everton faithful will go to any lengths, to support our beloved team, and I wholeheartedly applaud them for that. Come to think of it I did too when I was younger, and could afford to do so.
We also know, that the real reason is the difficulty in getting the flights to get there.

Maybe the reason the trip was cancelled was it was an 8-hour each way slog with no overnight stay. And premium priced. Maybe people are savvy enough and thought "fuck that".
There's plenty of examples of teams, including our neighbours, playing away in Europe with a minibus load of away fans. Not too many examples of Blues though. If they can turn up to Kharkiv in the numbers they did, they'll get anywhere in their droves.
(When did anyone give a shit what the Mirror says anyway? Okay they sold Baines to Man Utd, Barkley to Chelsea and Coleman to Arsenal, but we still survived?)
