Everton: Fans slam update on Merseyside derby venue

Everton: Fans slam update on Merseyside derby venue - Everton News

As the return of Premier League football edges closer, excitement for the Merseyside derby has been trumped by uncertainty. 

In a recent report by David Maddock of the Mirror, it has been revealed that Premier League clubs will be voting on where the upcoming rival clash will be hosted. The fixture is due to be played at Goodison Park, but there is no concrete decision over whether this will be the case.

Should Everton give Leighton Baines a new contract?





According to Maddock, a meeting is scheduled to discuss whether Everton will go ahead as hosts or if the derby will be played at a neutral venue.

The Blues have admitted they are ‘happy to go along with the Premier League majority’, when it comes to making a final decision. Fans however, aren’t best pleased with the emergence of this news and have expressed their disappointment on Twitter. One supporter has commented they are ‘absolutely embarrassed if that’s true’ whilst another claimed it was ‘disgusting’ that other clubs got to vote on the matter.
