Watching some of the Everton – Man United game this evening I was totally shocked at the behaviour of groups of Everton fans.

A heated atmosphere was to be expected, after all Wayne Rooney was returning to his old ground. Booing and jeering in the game nowadays is acceptable to a degree. However the actions of certain Everton fans this evening were disgusting and bared similarities to those of thugs from the 70’s and certain foreign clubs.

Rooney had a number of missiles thrown at him, luckily he wasn’t hit. Goal keeper Roy Carroll was not so lucky and was hit by a mobile phone. This is so dangerous, he could have been killed or left brain damaged! Carroll was also threatened by a group of fans who refused to give his ball back to him.

This kind of behaviour is not pleasant and should not be tolerated. I hate Man United with a passion but only in the football sense, I wouldn’t wish harm upon their players or fans. It is unfair they were subjected to that kind of abuse.

I really like Everton but really hope the Football Association come down hard on them and give them a hard and deserved punishment as the behaviour really is not on.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
