a great interview with his good lady wife, Elizabeth on Toffeeweb


as most of you will know, I've grown very close to David over the last 8 or 9 years, and when we went to London together for the Alex Young DVD preview he told me that I was like the son he never had.  Except I was cheaper as I didn't want to go to college.


his ill health has meant that our trip to London was probably the last time I will see him as his doctor has said he is not to travel anymore.


he has done a huge amount for both me as a person and NSNO as a website, not least with his incredible support for the fanzines we publish.  I think it would be great to send him some "get well" messages from us all.

Decent read that.

Good health to him. He's a lucky man, a wife with a sense of humour and knows her onions when it comes to Everton. :)

It was great to meet him on that London trip that you did (and yourself). He came across as such a passionate guy and had some great stories about the club.

The best thing I could say is that I was out tonight with a close friend who's a United fan who lives in Salford but works in London through the week. I took him along to that night and he always talks about how Everton seem to still have that sense of identity/family/community that United lost in the mid 00s.

People like David and yourself are the real core of that feeling

A gent - I remember being a keen part time (paid too!) editor of the Everton section of 'vitalfootball.co.uk' and during his unveiling of his collection he had to leave soon so had to KB a lot of those who wanted an interview with him (including Bluekipper who where not happy and being cocky as usual) but as I was only 18 he let me tape record our chat as I seemed 'young and keen'. Sadly I've lost the recording but not the memories. @Simon Paul

Enjoyed reading that. Loved the bit about there's not enough money in the world to persuade him to do that stupid American TV idea.

What about the hint at further Russian money and Chinese investment aswell?
