The main cause was that, as usual, there were no proper checks done on tickets at Goodison, prior to reaching the waist-high turnstiles. And also very few stewards at either side of the turnstiles. It's no wonder that absolutely loads tried their luck yesterday, and that caused the build-up.

Plenty were boasting on Friday about how easy it was last year to bunk in and saw images of tickets being shared about to check how good peopleís blag tickets were.

These types of things happen at all big games/events. As with Paris, the authorities HAVE to plan for it and deal with it. They donít though. Just sit back and blame us if anything goes wrong and tribal fucking idiots lap it up as if it couldnít just as easily be them. Itís not good enough.

Talking to a few of the fans that turned up very late (15-20 minutes late into the ground) they said that loads of our 'fans' were trying to get in with bent tickets that weren't getting taken off them and a few of them were fighting and acting like dickheads with the stewards and police.

Never saw any of that as I was in well before that.

So, not quite sure you can just blame Everton. It's an old ground with poor access - that's why they are moving.
We got there at 1150 and moved about 5 yards in the space of 15 mins as it looked like they had closed the turnstiles. I donít think that turning up to an away end 40 mins before ko is unreasonable at all, finally got in at 1220.

There's some bad c*nts on this forum and one in here who'll happily blame our own fans and defend the fucking blues at every opportunity. We need a cull on here badly

Exactly
I go there at just before 12 and took til 12.29 to get in with a non moving queue then a release and a surge and a crush whilst behind me the people who might have arrived a few minutes later were stuck behind a police line at the top of Bullens Road
 
It isnít good enough and it is the fault of terrible organisation not of the fans
And terrible organisation leads to accidents
I know if from my business that there is a massive shortage of trained and competent labour in things like crowd management and stewarding etc post pandemic. I fear for this season and fans

People in the away end at the game were blaming the Liverpool fans trying to bunk in with bent tickets as well.

Do you want them culled too? Or are you going to pretend it didn't happen. Didn't see it myself as I was in the ground well before, so can only go off what people said who were queuing outside for over half an hour.

At 45 minutes before kick off, there were cordons that you had to go up and down, a couple of tables and a few lads with those hand scanner airport beepy things. My ticket got checked literally ten times and I was searched twice and then given the once over with the beepy thing. All the up and downing even then took 30 seconds and at that stage was fine.

Coming out as well, didn't have to run the usual guantlet and were were initially going to walk back to Anfield Road (Via past the Wok and down that street - turning left at the Park) but it was all clearly kicking off, so we turned around and went through the corner entrance. Thought the Police did really well - there were plenty stationed around the park and on the bridge - been a bit ropey with scrotes in the past, but the police presence stopped any issues and we got to our usual local after with no issues.

When you say ''kicking off" are you saying there were clashes between both sets of fans? I only ask as I've seen nothing in the media about it.

I've not been to their place since the 90s and never had any bother on any occasion. I'm sure times have changed though, sadly.

Thesedays I don't want anything to do with it.

As soon as a bunch of lads and a load of police starting running past us, we turned around and got into the park.

Saw a few videos of dickheads shouting at each other and lobbing the odd thing, but can't really give you any info as I'm not interested in dickheads being dickheads.

Probably just kids being kids to be honest, quite a few randoms walking around with black hoodies on that clearly hadn't been to the game - but hard to say who, if anyone, they supported.

Thanks Andy. I suppose it's par for the course at the derby these days. 🫤

So if only everyone arrived at the same time as you it all would've been such a smooth operation. Just blame your own for turning up late, which was actually early.

Looked like it was bouncing at 3 - 0  ;D

Anyway they were having a good time)
