    Dave Watson.

    Saw his name mentioned on another thread,just thought to myself he maybe gets overlooked a little sometimes by our fanbase,what a great servant,player,leader,he had a difficult start to his career,but went on to win a title and FA Cup,for me though his greatest achievement was being one of our...

    How many of you have renewed for next season....................

    without clearly knowing which division we will be in.........I am about too,I think I am mad quite possibly, but I will be an Evertonian until I croak,I know it will kill me watching us in the championship if the very worst happens, but it's like a marriage isn't it,"for worse, and...

    My hero Terry.RIP

    Gutted on hearing this, feel free to move this mods if you wish, another part of my childhood growing up has departed the Everton scene, the inspiration for my moniker on this fine forum of ours, I got my first season ticket aged eight, now don't get me wrong most of us of a certain vintage...

    Mick Lyons:70 today!!!

    Wow!!!,suddenly I feel old!!,there may well have been greater players but his commitment to our cause back in the fitful days of the 1970's early 1980's was unparalleled in my humble opinion,Happy Birthday Mick...

    Crocks in our squad........

    Players who we just can't rely on to have any kind of consistent run in the team...............we do appear to have our share!!! Coleman,love him, we've had full value and many times more out of him, but forever seems doubtful these days,Mina our best actual defender but we never know when he is...

    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...

    If you're missing Goodison.......

    probably best to steer clear of this!!!Ace though :)

    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...
