A short time ago, Everton posed a teaser tweet concerning a little robot making one young fan’s dream come true.
With the first team entertaining Newcastle United later this evening at Goodison Park, the minds of fans are obviously elsewhere this evening and ongoing issues with Sam Allardyce has seen those with a more cheeky persuasion take another opportunity to air their current frustrations at the club.

Whatever this is in relation to, hopefully, the young fan in question will have a stellar experience later tonight.
Social media being what it is though, I must admit the reactions of fans to the tweet did give me a little giggle.

As well as the young lad enjoying his evening, let’s hope the team and Allardyce give everyone in the ground something to roar about this evening.
Three points would see us move at least temporarily above Leicester City and into eighth place in the Premier League table and however unlikely it may now be at this late stage of the season, Burnley are potentially in reach…but that’s probably pie in the sky and eighth is at least more doable.
