    I thought our midfield was good enough, with Gomes excelling, he looks a little overweight, but still put in a full shift. I think DCL will be a reasonable centre-forward in 8 to 10 years and should be sold this year. I also don't believe Digne was injured while on international duty last week...

    I met Cliff Marshall in Prescot waiting outside an electrical shop to open, I never knew him, we were there 3 or 4 minutes and got talking, he told me that he played for Everton, of course I realised who he was then, I said that I saw him in the Plymouth game 40 years previous, we had a chuckle...

    I think that I may be repeating myself here. A while ago our local used to run 'spot the balls' and 'raffles' in aid of our local pensioners, to give them a day out at Blackpool. I went round for a morning paper the day of the trip, there was a 48 seater coach outside the pub with the...

    Good one of Reidy with his Grecian 2000 and Hansen with his weightlifting arms.

    Ah there's a bit of room here. I was made up with Wembley public address system before the game with the Czechs last friday, Fred Pickering got a mention with Gordon Banks in dispatches. I know it's me rambling on! But at the end of the year 2017 BBC put up photographs of footballers who had...

    It's funny how girls can have a photo taken with nobody acting daft. If it had been the blokes, you'd get heads behind heads, tongues pulled the 'ups sign' and the odd arse out the window. Mind you, it looks like one of the girls has forgotten her teeth as there.s only 10.

    First Everton Goal of Your Life

    He was as his name said 'Steady Eddie', he played at a time in the 50s when Everton were piss poor. Roy Vernon was involved with the deal, Vernon to Everton £27,500 from Blackburn, Thomas to Blackburn (Rated at £7,500) £35,000 in all. A fantastic deal for us.

    First Everton Goal of Your Life

    I remember at the same time. Colin Green was a left back and marked Stanley Matthews in 2 games, he clattered Matthews in both games, Green was only about 18, at that time ( 59/60) and Matthews was a national treasure only really playing for show and a few games a season. I can remember a bit...

    First Everton Goal of Your Life

    I'd seen quite a few goals for us but nothing to write home about. In '58 I was behind the goal in Gwladys Street, the corner of the penalty box by Bullens Road, 'Shirley Temple' hit a right foot volley into the roof of the Arsenal net above Jack Kelsey the Welsh goalie. I'd say it was like...

    My ex- work partner, ex-best mate was a Red. At his funeral 2 years ago, all his brothers and sisters, his grandchildren, nieces & nephews were at his graveside for final prayers, I decided to leave that bit for the family. His wife came over to me afterwards and said she thought I didn't stand...

    I thought Barkley was the best. He tried a cross which ended in a miskick, but immediately before that, he used a bit of skill to beat a defender that only Bergkamp could do.

    I remember it only too well, got pissed New Years Eve and proposed. We (4 of us) went by car to Burnden ( A lucky venue 66 Semi Fa cup & 77 semi league cup). The groundsmen couldn't sweep the snow quick enough, so it was back to the alehouse to discuss what happened the night before!

    Yeah. I knew the Wolves old ground, always looked like the builder had read the drawings wrongly.

    I'd say that I was behind Southalls left ear in the Bullens Road stand that day (If my bearings are right). I remember the day well and was well disappointed with only minutes to go, I ran out of Gwladys Street................ran in the 3/4 time doors to Bullens Road Stands just in time to see...
