Player Valuation: £40m
That’s a big part of the reason the atmosphere is how it is. Loads of the lids who come on giving it the big one about making the atmosphere better go about 3 times a year, it’s an event for them, meeting up with their mates and having a few beers and they wonder why not everyone’s as up for it as them. If you go every week though, it stops being an event. A 2pm Sunday kick off in the rain feels like a bit of a chore when we’re not playing well, so fans who go all the time get frustrated at seeing the same players make the same mistakes as they’ve been seeing for the last 5 years or whatever. Familiarity breeds contempt.Unlike certain day tripper grounds I could mention, Goodison is full of season ticket holders. Maybe we need to hand out a few hymn sheets eh?
