Oh the life of being an Evertonian, they say Everton is like a drug, never dabbled with it but who needs to when nothing on earth can put you on a high then low like Everton, even Saint Peter would be hard pushed to keep his patience with our club at times.

Feel for the younger generation, I've had my mix of highs, but the poor younger lot have had to put up with the Wimbledon and Coventry great escape, the Walker, Smith, Martinez, Koeman brigade, watched as we bought player after player last Summer, at last a new beginning, a venture through Europe, but as night always follows Day, we have the rug pulled from underneath us.

Fear not though, our time will come once again, when it does, the younger fan base we have, will not know what has hit them.

It may not come in my lifetime, but I've had my fix, we owe it to those poor buggers who have only seen the darker Days, stay patient fellow Blues, every dog has its Day.

I'd equate this season to a dark smack habit.

That’s a great post Baz. I’m pretty sure we will see success again mate although I’m not sure how young you are. But I saw the eighties

In fact I’ve got an eighties fancy dress party soon so I’m wearing my Hafnia 84 FA cup final replica shirt. But if it’s a bit tight it’ll be under my Adam Ant costume.

{Ed025's Note - just be sure not to wear your gary glitter one ace.. :)

Oh Ed. You just made me sick in my mouth.

I went my first game in I think the 74-75 season when we drew 0-0 to the eventual champions Derby County, was a fan before then from my earliest recollection 69, Gordon Lee got a lot of stick but we played some decent football, just lacked a quality goalkeeper, although trophyless in the seventies had some decent players, Latchford, King, Dobson, McKenzie and one of the finest wingers in Dave Thomas along with others, here’s a freebie thrown in, the 77 second replay league cup final at Old Trafford, two Everton players came out with the same number on their back, think it was number 2 with Neil Robinson and Darrocott wearing the number 2.

Again mixed bag in the eighties I was lucky my parents helped out with contributing towards some of the home and away games due to unbelievable unemployment in the region.

Saw the glory Days, the cup finals so I have been very lucky along with others, even saw 2 Derby wins in a row away to our neighbours, both times stood on the kop with a few thousand other Evertonians, Turned up at West Brom with a carful and few feet of snow, only to be told the match has been called of late seventies/ early eighties, was half way up a tree in Stanly Park for the Wimbledon final game due to no ticket, I have had many a great time, that’s why I really hope our next generation of fans get to see Everton succeed.

Not sure how many have read the book scally, Sums up how it was back then, we were just normal football fans 6 of us hardly missing a match, who went for the love of Everton, unlike some of our fans who went for other reasons.

We went Villa Park in the car, last away game in 82, we had to make our way back to the car with no escort, soon got spotted and chased, we managed to get to a petrol station and hold them off til the police arrived, the last lad got hit in the jaw with a brick, it mentions a bit about a casualty in the booki, itwas his first and last game he travelled with us so unsure if he was part of the mentioned mob, thankfully we went many other games as fans and never got bothered again, thankfully now on top of crowd safety.

Hahaha ed025. The dry humour over the past few days has been very good. Much better than moaning.

{Ed025's Note - its been really good joe..

Not sure if it was Ed25 who was next to me and fell off the branch and in a heap on the grass in Stanley Park for the Wimbledon game, hence to say no pity from the fans below who raced for the vacant branch view, like a rat up a drain pipe.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think it was baz but i cant remember much that day mate as i was drinking the city dry..

10 Jan 2018 19:54:18
Gotta love Ed25 one of us and gives a good honest response, knows how we feel with sometimes letting our feelings and anguish getting the better of us.

Ed02 gives some straight talking feedback, I tend to call them good cop bad cop, all in jest of course.

Love it Ed25, my mate lheaded back to the train station at 2 nil so missed the comeback.
