Everton fans were certainly happy on Saturday as Marco Silva opened up pre-season properly by taking an emphatic victory over ATV Irdning.

Everton enjoyed a 22 goal thriller out in Austria as we closed our training camp down with preparations continuing for the coming 2018/19 Premier League campaign, and with an own goal included, Leighton Baines, Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Cenk Tosun (4), Ademola Lookman (3), Kevin Mirallas (5), Oumar Niasse (4) and Nikola Vlasic (2) all got themselves on the scoresheet.

With such a large and comfortable win as we utterly dominated the opposition on the day, clearly the game is a standout but few will expect a repeat again this year. It’s certainly boosted confidence though given the club are so slow on a transfer front this summer and fans certainly enjoyed themselves on social media as the game was taking place.

Here’s a selection of the best comments as each goal ticked by and increased the scale of the score.

Just for the record – this is only 8-0.
