Sean Dyche and Everton have avoided the unthinkable and survived their relegation battle after a tense win against Bournemouth on the final day of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Leicester City also beat West Ham, meaning that anything other than a victory would have lost Everton their status as one of only six clubs never to have been relegated from the Premier League.
However, while fans did rejoice and storm the pitch, many stayed in the stands and chanted for the board to be sacked.
In the Sky Sports studio, Jamie Carragher agreed with these sentiments that avoiding relegation is not cause for celebration for a club as prestigious as Everton, and also called for board members to step down.
I think there was a feeling last season that in some ways the people in charge of the club almost wanted a pat on the back, for being part of keeping Everton up, making the decision to bring Frank Lampard in.
And I think the reaction from the stands is telling. That initial whistles gone, people coming on the pitch, they're excited I get that, but the majority of supporters were nearly screaming and booing the fans who'd gone on, and then started singing 'sack the board'.

"And I do feel going forward that there's going to be some sort of change at Everton, some sort of minority share holder comes into help this year," continued Carragher.
"In terms of the people who have been on the board for the last few years, I think in the next day or two they've got to leave the post.
"It's the only way I think they'll get some sort of backing back from these Everton supporters."
