Less scuffling expected at “Occupy Goodison Park” protest

November 19, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Merseyside police have announced they are not too concerned about the upcoming protest planned today as part of the global Occupy movement, this time by Everton supporters.

Dozens of people were arrested in New York on Thursday as they marched on Wall Street, but hopes are high that those protesting before the match against Wolves will not provoke such treatment.

PC Bob Thorne said, “Although we are expecting some disturbances, we doubt there will be much trouble due to the fact the supporters don’t really have anything to complain about.

“Football fans angry that their club’s owners refuse to push their club towards financial suicide like the rest of the Premier League can’t really compete with furious socialists and anti-capitalists.

“Who could?”

However, Everton supporters themselves are determined to wreak havoc in the streets around their stadium as they vent their anger at Bill Kenwright not wasting millions on dubious foreign signings.

One Blue Union member told us, “On Saturday we plan to show the world of football just how disgusted we are by the board not paying ridiculous prices for horrendously-overrated British players.

“Without spending ludicrous amounts during every transfer window there is no way that our club can compete with the levels of debt of the biggest teams in the Premier League.

“The board’s outrageous transfer policy means David Moyes will have to select the best talent from our academy and nurture them to make a great team without overwhelming financial aid.

“That’s simply not realistic these days.”
