So, Watty, our intrepid explorer arrived safely in Spain after being among the only three Evertonians on the flight to Granada departing John Lennon Airport, which resembled the Goodison Park concourse on matchday – all apart from one kopite, flying OUT of Liverpool on the evening of his side qualifying for the Champions League proper. Bless.
The lad even wore his best “Stevie G lar” replica shirt, such a good fan that he is. Take a moment to feel his shame, and probable fear, at being the only one in red flying out of Liverpool yesterday. Then imagine his relief at boarding a completely different plane to the hoards of Evertonians.
And then picture his face as “If you know your history” piped up from the seats behind him. I do believe Watty had paid for his trip on his Mastercard. The kopite’s face, however, was priceless.
The trio of Blues faced with the 350 mile trip from Granada to Elche landed shortly after 8pm local time, and left our red-loving friend to enjoy his holiday, but there was no shortage of listeners for our trio to entertain on their journey.
For the lucky two that had opted out of driving, our brave hero Watty included, the customers of various service stations throughout Spain were treated to renditions of “If you know your history” throughout the night.
Watty continues his journey today towards Villarreal, and we will keep you updated on his, no doubt alcohol fuelled, progress as we recieve his news.
We did, however, equip him with vital safety equipment, a bright yellow NSNO T-shirt, which he has been instructed to wear late at night in case he gets lost. So, if you see our man looking dazed and confused, be sure to point and laugh hysterically, and maybe let us know!
He asked for Extra-Large, we can only presume he wanted it for camping
