Mad second half.

Fat Frank did the firefighting job like fat Sam. Some of my mates still can’t accept a Tory in charge but I’ll take the win. Good on him.

Got a bottle of Johnnie Blue in the cupboard. I think I’ll get stuck into that on Friday night.

Then back to reality. Massive clear-out needed at Goodison.

Memorable come back win. Toffees have done it. Mission accomplished. It's a feather in the cap for gaffer Frank Lampard. Everton footballers have given their fans priceless memories. Well played.

@Fighto, have a sit down son. Viera won’t be setting banned or sacked anytime soon.

Cantona karate kicked a fan in the stand, in this case the fan invaded the pitch, which is illegal. He’ll get fined and warned

Congrats to Everton I suppose I fear they may be doing this all over again next season

Despicable behaviour from grubby Viera. Police to investigate. If you can't handle some taunts, without resorting to attacking people, get out of the job.

From AP:

Amid a pitch invasion by Everton fans, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira appeared to kick out at a supporter who looked to be goading him during a confrontation.

The field was flooded by Everton supporters after their team recovered from 2-0 down at halftime to win 3-2 on Thursday and secure Premier League survival before Sunday's final round.

As Vieira tried to leave the field, a supporter seemingly holding up a phone could be seen extending his arms toward the Frenchman's face. Vieira then turns and tries to grab the phone before kicking him with his right foot. The fan fell to the ground.

Well done to The Blues, extraordinary performance! I've always said they were too big to go down. Hats off to gaffer Frank Lampard. They'll be singing his name from the terraces for as long as Goodison Park exists.

The celebrations turned nasty when supporters taunted Palace boss Patrick Vieira, who responded by kicking one fan.

Shocking.

We all remember the Cantona kick and the big ban that resulted. This disgrace by Viera of kicking an opposition supporter to the ground should see him banned for half of next season. If Palace don't sack him first.

@Jimizo:

Good on you, sport, Everton down in the Championship would have seemed like a crime against nature. Time for a rebuild.

If Ayew was given red card, game might have been decided earlier.
