....forgive me the indulgence but this is Everton. I was brought up in the house with the checkered step but moved into the black and white one when I was 8.

2 up, 2 down, I shared the front bedroom with my older sister. I actually signed for a top flight football club in that black and White House. Like other kids, I played footy in that street from morning until night, nothing but footy.

....amazing picture, just won the league and not one smile. I think that was the culture then, not to smile on photographs, how times have changed.
Love the oul fella in the trilby right hand side, ciggy in mouth looking the opposite way to all hands !

Thank goodness it went in - he had no chance with it - we looked ok untill Connelley,s leg brake disgusting tackle I was yards away from it in the paddock the noise was horrible I knew he had done him good style two breaks in the same leg John was never the same after that dirty tackle........lost two yards of pace, shame as he was just settling in......
I went into school on the Monday after the game. Ist day back after Christmas holidays, had P.E. and who walks in as our new P.E. teacher? Only the fella who broke his leg, John Davison !! Was a rumour going round that one of the 6th formers who was a massive Blue gave him a smack before the week was out.
