Here is the place to lay bare your sins regarding our beloved Everton in hope of some kind of resolution, but most likely ridicule. Seeing as I have created this thread I will go first.

The first football game my dad took me to was the Everton vs Arsenal game at the beginning of the 04/05 season. I sat in the main stand surrounded by Blues as Arsenal smoked us 4-1 with Reyes, Bergkamp, Ljungberg and Pires scoring for them and Lee Carsley getting our solitary goal. However I wasn't really allowed to celebrate any of the goals as I was an Arsenal fan at the time. I was young, naive and my dad clearly wanted me to escape the life of suffering I would inevitably have by supporting the blues so allowed this terrible behaviour.

I switched allegiances however and we now have season tickets.

You're forgiven.

I have a boss in work who decided to support the RS in his 40s. It was the Gerrard slip season too.

He's a bellend

All I ask is an empty road.
I sinned.

Sat in a pub some time in the early 2000s watching us get embarrassed 7-0 or something by the Arsenal after an already bad run of miserable awfulness.

The thought crossed my mind, only for the swiftest, slightest part of the tiniest femtosecond: "find another club"

I went hone and showered myself in scalding water for the thought, and still haven't felt properly clean since, but the thought, however transient, was there, I cannot deny it.

Forgive me.

Forgive me.

That's quite some admission! My wife says that to me whenever we're on the end of a good tonking - "Why don't just support a better team?" etc.

The thing is, if I had to categorise my feelings for the club it is not really related to winning, or being entertained. The closest analogy I could make would be that of a son or daughter. I want them to do well, sometimes I get a bit cross with them, but at the end of the day we win and lose together. I just want to be proud of them.

It is different, because a football club is a lot of different and changing people, so I'm free to hate Allardyce with every fibre of my being.

I did once, in school, pretend to be a Man Utd fan as they owned the only part of the playground that was covered and it was raining.
