There’s something different about Everton’s kit and it probably means the end of football as we know it

The Toffees have introduced 'Angry Birds' as a sleeve sponsor and fans hate it

Come on then, Kim Jong Un, just nuke us all and let’s be done with it.

Here we were, enjoying a Super Sunday featuring two mouth-watering fixtures, when all of a sudden we spotted it and just like that everything was ruined.

Everton’s new sleeve sponsor…

Man United and England’s all-time top scorer… as a human Angry Birds advert

Angry. Bloody. Birds.

The concept of shirt sleeves is bad enough let alone one promoting a game that everyone stopped playing years ago.

Football shirts are absolutely beautiful when clean and pure — corporate names and logos are eyesores.

Needless to say Toffees fans were repulsed by the new addition…

All fans unite in their hatred of the commercialisation of football.

This disease must be stopped before it spreads to other Premier League clubs.

And seriously, does anyone actually still play Angry Birds?
