As well as “Happy Star Wars” (May the 4th be with you…) one of the top trends on Twitter on Sunday morning was #BlameEverton.
It comes just hours after Everton fans were not too upset to see their side lose at home to Manchester City in one of the final Premier League games of the season.
Manchester City’s victory means they go top for the first time since February and unless there is an obscene turnaround in goal difference, Manuel Pellegrini’s side should win the Premier League title with victories over Aston Villa and Manchester City.
So, Everton fans could console themselves with the thought that their side had battled hard but failed to beat City and hand the title to near neighbours Liverpool.
But, supporters of Brendan Rodgers’ side have watched the league title slip out of their grasp with the 2-0 home defeat to Chelsea and are understandably upset that Everton did not put in much effort.
