“Oh my goodness, what a difference a few games has made,” Brown-Finnis exclaimed. “Talking the last couple of games, there’s been some positivity about Everton fans around the city. I’m talking a couple of years of doldrums of tough times of hardship. Those fans that are there, traveling to Crystal Palace, if this game finishes as it is, have been rewarded for standing by their team.”
