Evertonians bring their amazing support to Finch Farm

Saturday, 7 May, 2022 19comments  |  Jump to last

Hundreds of Everton fans followed up the magnificent show of support they put on ahead of the Chelsea game by assembling at the gates of Finch Farm this afternoon to see the first-team coaches off to Leicester.

Images and video of the thousands of Blues who thronged the streets around Goodison Park before last Sunday's crucial win inspired another call for fans to head to the club's training complex in Halewood to cheer the players ahead of tomorrow's match at the King Power Stadium.

The narrow, hedge-lined road that leads to Finch Farm was choked with people waving flags, holding blue smoke canisters aloft and cheering, while some younger Evertonians received fist-bumps from a visibly chuffed Frank Lampard though the coach window.

It's all part of an unprecedented collective effort by Evertonians to lift the team in its bid to avoid relegation this season and, in this instance, motivate them to pick up what would be their first win away from home since August.

We are respected wherever we may go.

Marching down the Goodison Road.

Fantastic to hear the youngsters belt that out.

Pride and passion. Let's do this Everton.

Unless I’m mistaken, this kind of thing is almost always reserved for finals or maybe semi - finals isn’t it ?

I know our loveable neighbours have welcomed opponents in a somewhat similar fashion but didn’t that involve criminality for the most part ?

It is one thing to do something like this when your team is flying, but to carry on this way with half a dozen games still to go is beyond special.

For me, today’s scenes surpass even the Chelsea game. This is the training ground for God’s sake …. the day before an away game !!!!!

Just imagine if we were successful.

One love. One team. One Everton.
Tell your children 💙

Brilliant stuff. Surely THIS time the players must back up one good performance with another?!

Frank must be one of our most popular managers since HK1...imagine if he actually wins us a trophy!!!

Lee@7 Agreed and I think Frank is becoming one of us, I’m loving the way he is sticking up for the club, no matter what happens come the end of the season I hope we stick with Lampard, he is bringing the players and fans together, amazing scenes! UTFT! COYB!

Great stuff, the only thing missing was Blue Bill's Head on a Stake !

We are getting there, fantastic support again, you'd think we were going to a Final. If they treat every game from now on as a Final, we will survive. Makes me proud to be a Blue, not that I wasn't before but that and Sunday has rekindled something, Solidarity !

To every Evertonian that went to Finch farm today, Goodison last weekend, and Leicester away, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Incredible support, after a season that didn't particularly deserve this support but at a time when it was never more needed.
There's been times this season when the club has felt torn apart with fans even turning on their own. But this support which has really made a massive, massive difference, has highlighted what a special club we are. This must be unprecedented. !!!
Its easy to offer this sort of support when a club is winning but this is amazing.
The club feels united and I think Frank has played a part in that so long may it continue.
Well done every player aswell. They gave their all.
Not safe yet but.

Nicely said Julie. Great to see the passion our Manager has instilled in the players now joining forces with the renewed enthusiasm of the fans. Things starting to come together now. Build slowly and with long lasting quality this tme please.
FANtastic. Keep this support going in this same direction. The team needs it badly.

Understand there are plans afoot to “see the coach off to Watford” today at Finch Farm too. 3:15 pm it leaves apparently.

Get your arses down there, ToffeeWebers!!!!!!
