Just thought id respond to some of the comments on this thread.. Firstly, when i was young growing up in australia, i always loved football. Me and my dad would stay up watching premier league, and i genuinely don't know why, but we followed everton and fell in love. I supported everton from afar, and had an opportunity to move overseas, and chose the uk, largely due to my love of football, and everton.
After all of that, going to my first game at goodison was a religious experience. Probably something that can't be explained to someone who has grown up with the club, and gone to games week in and week out. We lost 6-1 to arsenal, and it was the best day of my life.
I do have someone who i catch up with now and then, who because of his position, i respect what he says about football. When we catch up, the whole conversation is about football, and i probe him about what he knows about our beloved club. What he tells me is possibly something he heard from another agent, or in the grape vine.. and i share it on here.
The last comment i made was a touch arrogant, when the bid for baines came through.. but it was also in response to the crowd of people who were saying 'baines will never leave, and moyes will never try and take him.. your full of shit..etc' those same people are now trying to rip it apart by saying 'anyone could have predicted that moyes would want baines etc. So due to that, i think its fair to be pissed off a touch.
Long story short, i love this club, and i dare say as much as most, if not all of you. Definately not going to post anymore things i hear from my mate, but just think the comments made are a touch harsh, im not some WUM, i just love this club, and love talking about it with other fans who are as passionate as me.
Ah, you're Australian, that explains everything.
Did you enjoy the Lions' game this morning?
(I am joking of course, I have Australian family)
