Problem is, the weather didn't cooperate with his plans, as Everton's match against Crystal Palace was postponed due to inclement weather. 


Sadly @Everton v Palace match called off due to bad weather. Dream to watch EFC play will continue to be on hold.

Not all was lost, though. Everton, in a touch of class, sought him out to make sure that his night wasn't a total loss. 


@stu_ithilien @ric_wee Don't worry Stu - we're already well across it. And @ric_wee has been taken to the dressing room to meet the players.
