The 51-year-old gentleman, who apparently attended the game with his son, was treated by paramedics and an off-duty doctor on the scene in the stand and was later transferred to Aintree Hospital where he passed away.
We join Everton in extending our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I could see the paramedics doing CPR for quite some time but feared the worst.
Very sad day.

Just so sad for him, his family and friends.
No consolation at all, but the way all the fans in the area reacted was really emotional, many stopping watching the game to stand and applaud, giving support to a fellow blue, struggling.
Puts it all a bit in to perspective. RIP.

Absolute tragedy, kudos to our fans for the massive support, and the Stoke fans who stopped their wind-ups to solidly applause.
As has been said, sincere condolences to any family, and RIP brother blue.

I'm sure that William Ralph, TW's much missed Harold and legions of True Blues have made our fallen Toff feel welcome as only Blues can.
Rest in "God's Acre".

While we are celebrating a win in blissful ignorance, some poor kid and the rest of his family are coming to terms with this tragic loss.
As Ian say, puts it all in perspective.

Have to give a mention to all the supporters of other clubs for their remarks on FB and other social media, litterally thousands and a lot from Manchester as well... fair play to the real football family members, the supporters.
MotD never said a word!!!
