    Living your own Everton dream..........

    I was best man last Saturday,nothing too odd about that you may think, the last time I was bestowed this dubious "honour" was just before the pandemic, my mate was marrying a girl from Berlin and their were a hundredish guests flown over from the fatherland,I did my speech in my "phonetic"German...

    New/Old Song!!!

    Heard this a few times at the game yesterday, from the 1960's Golden Vision play, surprising how it caught on in our end, quite refreshing to hear something different to "ton,'ton,'ton"grand old team, royal blue mersey, etc,long may it reign lol

    FA Cup Winners or Champions League - Poll added

    I know a number of you will quite rightly say why can't we have both!!However if you were pinned down(Oooooeeeerr Mrs ;)lol) and could only choose one this season,what would it be?, personally and call me a sentimental old fool if you will,I would want the FA Cup every day of the week over the...

    What's the single worst thing about missing the match?

    I'm sure we all miss everything about it whether the Blues are home or away, the craic, the pubs, the banter, getting soaked/frozen,moaning before/during and after the game,however the very worst thing for me about this "new way" of following our team has been adjusting to hearing the...

    Latch V Sharpy

    Controversial one perhaps, Latch a total predator in the Penalty area, he only really existed in there and I can't really recall him linking play up too much,I am probably incorrect but I can only recall him knocking one in from outside the area(Leicester away 5-1 1977?)played in some good sides...

    Next three games.

    I think this will be a massive barometer for our season,Fulham/Leeds then Burnley,I work with a lot of Blues and as is usual with us lol ,I am feeling the "Negativity" again after a really encouraging start to this season,three wins or at worst two wins and a draw and the diagnosis for the...

    This is what we need and expect of our players.

    What Everton are lacking as a club,and I'm not talking about Alan Ball the player who was truly World Class,but Alan Balls passion to contest every single decision, free kick, offside,throw in, no shrug of the shoulders of acceptance to the officials like our current shower,a Winner with a...

    Where and when did it all start going awry for us?

    Tossing and turning,oooeeerrrrr Missus lol last night trying to get some shuteye, got thinking about when we were ace, up to 1987,it would be easy to blame very mitigating factors such as Heysel,the ban,Howard leaving for European football in Spain,but was there an exact moment when you thought...

    Hopefully of interest!!!

    I remember watching this as a kid at school,I wonder if this jogs a few of the more senior “old boys” memories on here?;):)

    Our midfield.

    Or should I say "what midfield"?with the exception of young Gordon who is showing great promise,this is the area in my opinion that requires a total overhaul,we are so lacking in the basics required in this department,no energy,no ball winners,no lock pickers,so very,very slow and one...

    One Everton picture you can take with you when you croak!!!

    If I could take one photo with me as to why I love Everton,it wouldn't be the any of the fantastic times winning titles,FA Cups,a European trophy or all the awesome games and goals I've seen over so many years,it would be this,it just encapsulates the absolute joy and love us fans have for OUR...

    Old School 1970's EFC player chants.

    This lockdown gives more time to think back to the "good old days"!!!, Any I've forgotten here?I'm sure there must be more, also feel free if any of our "senior" posters have any from the 1960's too!!The ones I mainly recall were: "Georgie,Georgie,show us your ar*e",bizarrely he did too!! "Lyons...

    Our top ten greatest ever.

    Looking at the Bally thread got me thinking on this,it would be interesting to hear everyone's thoughts,maybe our clever techy mods could turn it into a poll!!very,very difficult to define greatness,lineker a case in point,with us one season,similar to Tommy Lawton who was only with us a couple...
