If we ever got to the stage we were winning leagues, would ye expect to see similar scenes to that of them lot with their fireworks all over the city and massive gatherings etc?
I am trying to remember did we have a parade after the cup in 95?
The cup still meant a lot in 95
We did and it was packed from Goodison to town and back.
But yeah, they've been the best team on the planet, not just the city for the last year. After years and years of being utter shit by their own standards.
They're all meffs, but got to let them have it, imagine how good it feels for their real fans.
I remember BATE beating us on a cold Thursday night in December at a half empty Goodison. My initial (and familiar) fume at going behind was replaced when i looked over and saw just how much they were fucking made up. In a massively patronising way, i couldnt help smiling that this little nomark team from some backwater soviet bloc had saved up their roubles to come all the way over to the grand lady and were seeing their minnows beat us. Left the ground happy despite the defeat.
There's the tiniest bit of that well-balanced adult still in me and, despite the fact they have a large collection of the worst fans in the world, my jealousy is tempered with imaging what it must feel like.
If leicester can do it. If Liverpool, who have been SHITE for ages can do it.
Then fuck it, we can do it too.
