As prices for what could either be the decisive match in the 2015-16 title race or a coronation for Claudio Ranieri's unlikely title winners have sky-rocketed, John announced on Twitter his intention to donate his tickets to a Leicester fan who otherwise couldn't afford to go and urged other Evertonians to do the same.
An unnamed Leicester fan and his father are the recipients of his generosity.
“I actually started crying," the father said. “I was basically weeping and I still can't believe someone can be so generous.
“I've been trying to buy tickets for the last home game for ages but it's impossible.”
John, an Evertonian from Liverpool said of his decision: “I hope lots of other Everton fans will think about giving their tickets away.
“It's a brilliant underdog story and everyone is willing Leicester on now except for Spurs fans.”

Would love all Blues who have tickets for that game to do the same and allow true supporters to see their team (hopefully) lift the title for what may be a once in a lifetime occasion.
Pisses me off how some people are selling tickets for hundreds or thousands of pounds to make out of it.

Brian #1 - I agree it's disgusting about the "fans" trying to make a killing off the tickets. It's the e-bay generation, everyone's on the make. Fans of all clubs do it, even ours (although they still prefer to sell fake barcoded ticket receipts to their own rather than actually sell a genuine ticket).

Really glad that nasty chavvy Chelsea are winning sod all.

As recognition of his kind gesture reaches people, they are responding in kind by making donations to the Amelia-Mae foundation which helps families of children with the same illness. Although he does state he hasn't had any donations from Spurs fans yet!
