Everton fans are far from happy with the timing of the latest update on their new stadium, which came following their defeat to Fulham on Sunday.
The Toffees were soundly beaten at Craven Cottage as Fulham won 2-0 thanks to a brace from new loan arrival Josh Maja. While Everton are still just five points off the top four with two games in hand (Sky Sports), Carlo Ancelotti will know this is the kind of game he needed to have won if he wants to take his side to the Champions League.
On Monday, the day after the clash, Everton CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale revealed that the planning officer for their new stadium will recommend to the building committee that the club’s plans are approved. While this should be good news, the supporters were far from happy that it came after an embarrassing loss.
