Everton fans are all making the same joke after a reported incident involving the Under-18 side, hoping to see more of the youngsters in the first team fold.
Everton fell to yet another disappointing defeat on Wednesday night, as Manchester City strolled past the Toffees at Goodison.
While the visit of last season’s champions isn’t exactly the type of fixture to expect three points in, the lack of fight from Marco Silva’s troops is still a huge concern.
The Blues have now lost four of their last five games in all competitions, and have won just four times since the start of December.
Meanwhile, the Under-18’s took on Manchester United’s youngsters on Tuesday night, and the game reportedly ended in a brawl, with one observer claiming the Everton players “attacked” the Red Devils.
No hand shaking at the final whistle – just a big fight!
Everton very poor losers & started attacking the United players!

Although the Toffees’ teenagers lost 1-0, they are top of the league, and fans are hoping to see some of them in the first team, if only to inject a bit of youthful exuberance and Scouse passion into the side.
