Every now and then an Everton book comes along that you just have to read. The Holy Trinity and Beyond by Phil Thomson (not that one) is one such book.
Modestly subtitled “A collection of yans and observations from an unbiased Evertonian” the book is a real page-turner, and even has a twist at the end.
Phil kicks off describing his loathing of the Geordie, something we can all relate to, and goes on to describe some of the funniest moments as well as the time he picked up a reminder of an away day that will forever stay in his mind. And on his record.
From Newcastle, via Luton, Spurs and Kharkiv and back to Newcastle again, Phil lets us in on the “in” jokes that many away day Evertonians have brought back with them from their travels.
He tells the tales so well you will think you had been on the trips with him, and who doesn’t like reading about Everton away days?
You can get yourself a copy upstairs in St Luke’s Church on matchdays from about mid-day (for a 3pm kick off like tomorrow against West Ham, hint hint) and we’re pretty sure he’d happily compare stories about the trips he covers in his book.
