Hello everyone,

Some of you may remember me when I did a couple of posts with dads account, GrumpyToffee.

When dad passed away a few of you extended an invitation for me to sign up here, I hope the invitations are still valid and you accept me here as you all accepted dad.

I think dad would of had a lump in his throat reading all of the messages on here, 2 full pages from you wonderful people and further messages from Liverpool, Man Utd and Man City fans, reading them all made me truly humble. I didn't realise just how popular he was after all he was just dad to me, but over 300 people attended his funeral to say good bye to him.

I know I will never be able to fill his shoes on here but I would hope to be an active member and if I am only half as popular I will be a happy man.

Thank you everyone, your actions meant a lot to all of the family.
Tony.

{Ed025's Note - your very welcome SOG, i dont know if you know mate but there is a big charity game going on within the site where posters from many teams are coming together to raise money, at this game organised mainly by benny baller from the liverpool pages as a mark of respect they will all be wearing black arm bands as a tribute to your late father which we are all delighted about, its actually live on facebook and the details can be found at the top of the page...cheers..

Hi Tony, very welcome looks like you may have picked a great time to follow in your Fathers footsteps / keyboard steps!

Your Dad was a legend, you are quite welcome. Some of us old sods are set in our ways but I always enjoyed reading your Dads posts, very inciteful and to the point. We all go back to the days of Catterick and his ilk. Ups and downs but through it all we are Evertonian from head to toe.

Welcome Tony.

Welcome to the site Tony.

Welcome son of Grumpy. Look forward to having Grumpy juniors point of view on here.

I had no idea Ed but I have spoken to mum and other members of the family and we all think the arm bands are such a lovely touch. I will post a thank you to Benny Baller over the next day or so as well.

I can't find the details about the event though, doesn't help not having a facebook account, I will open one as I would love to watch the game.

On a happier note it looks as though the club has started to look at the long term with some great appointments, Brands in particular is a massive signing for us. Saying that though all of our new appointees from directors downwards have a heck of a task ahead of them, hopefully by season 3 we should be poking a toe inside the door of the elusive top 4. This season we start getting rid of the dross left behind by Koeman and Allardyce with the season after being used to rebuild for the future.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome
Tony.

{Ed001's Note - 6 days to go!

On the 16th of June our Facebook page will go live to a charity match the site has organised, in aid of Seva and Macmillan nurses.
It will be a 3pm kick off!
Please share and like our page to support the boys taking part. We have one crowdfunded page on justgiving that raised £300 before prematurely ending so stay tuned for a new one setting up. We are hopeful to raise £1000 with this and the players match fees.

This is also the last call for anyone else who wants to play in the game held in north oxfordshire. Current players range from all abilities and ages! So do not feel you cannot contribute.

Text me on 07719565417 for more info!

Will ed001's "Just like watching brazil" better ed002's "Walham green east wapping, carpet cleaning rodent and boggit exterminating association"....FC?

Who is your money on?!

Benny just sent me this funnily enough.}

Welcome Tony glad to have you with us we all miss your Dad very much on this site and will miss him in the live chats next season.

Welcome Tony. Your Dad was born about the same time as myself. It was always great to debate all things Everton with him. He is missed by all us old farts,
Mike.

welcome SOG.
I'm just sorry it's not both you and your Dad posting on the site.

11 Jun 2018 08:41:27
Great to hear from you Son of Grumpy. The legend lives on :-) I'm sure everyone is delighted to have you on board. Your father as you can see was well respected on here. I have no doubt it will be the same for you.

11 Jun 2018 21:09:22
Welcome Tony. Word of advise don't cross ed002. He will cut you down. Its entertaining reading when you're not on the end of it.

11 Jun 2018 21:53:47
