Everton supporters once again filled the streets on a protest march against the club’s owner a board of directors.
Fans set off from The Royal Oak public house on Spellow Lane up to Goodison Park ahead of their team’s Premier League game against Arsenal.
Although the Blues – who are joint bottom of the table with just 15 points from 20 games, their lowest ever tally at this stage of a Premier League season – are hoping for a much-needed upturn in their on-the-field fortunes with new manager Sean Dyche taking charge for the first time, there is widespread fury among sections of their fanbase over how their club is being run.

Despite selling Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United for £45million last month, Everton were the only team involved in the battle against relegation not to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window with new signings with their spending on players being considerably eroded in recent times after previous investment under Farhad Moshiri.
Starting their protest by holding up a placard across County Road, the protestors chanted anti-board slogans while making their way up Spellow Lane and by the main stand of the stadium on Goodison Road.
Members of Everton board did not attend the previous home game against Southampton due to security concerns and at the time of publication, it appears they will not be at the Arsenal game either.
