On Saturday, Everton defeated Manchester City, the defending English Premier League champions, 2-0. They accomplished this playing the last half hour with only 10 men. The score stood at a nail-baiting 1-0 until the final moment when Nikica Jelavic, who hadn’t scored for Everton in forever, produced the clinching goal.
The video below takes you into the lower Gwladys Street stand, where Everton’s most rabid supporters reside, as Jelavic’s goal unfolds. It conveys what it means to support Everton far better than I have been able to do in my many thousands of words about the team.
Notice in particular the voice calling for the pass to Jelavic and then advising Jelavic (profanity alert) what to do.
