Post by: petnikev on June 24, 2017, 09:09:05 PM
Hi Guy's
forgive me if I'm in the wrong place I'm new to this writing blog stuff,I have been watching Everton for over 60 years I was at goodison getting players autograph's when Alex Parker came back after being in the army when bobby collins and other lads would come for training at the back of the park end many times the ball would be kicked over the placards one or two players would climb up and shout for the ball to be thrown back, in the old goodison avenue it used to be at the back of the park end some of the old footballers lived there I can remember going to Cyril Lello's house for his autograph his wife would call him and he would give his autograph on his ciggie packet
those where the daze

We need a day centre where all us oldies can meet. We can swap stories and memories and then go back the next day and do it again as we'll have forgotten what we said yesterday.

This is where I miss posters like nomorechang, I love hearing Everton stories of days gone bye.

I remember there was a poster on here who saw Dixie play. Timloid his name was, think he's passed away now, he hasn't been on for years.

I'm 40 and I love posts like that.

I remember stories my dad used to tell - Bob Latchford, Duncan McKenzie, Mike Lyons, Dave Jones etc.

I think most Evertonians are brought up on stories like these from dad's, brothers, uncles (and some female Blues too) and they bring back great memories    :)

You should talk to Edbootle - he probably sold Cyril the ciggies.

Yeah he died last year, actually could've been the year before, we didn't get the funeral details til last minute either, me and Si were going to go pay our respects but didn't get a chance.

Plus we were unsure as to how his family and friends would be when to random blokes off the Internet turned up.

You would have been ok. Modern tradition is family at the front, then friends, then acquaintances and trolls at the back.

I think 90,000 might have been in his mind but I was there with I think 64000 and I could lift my feet off the floor and not drop ,it was so packed .This latest standing debate made me think back ,talking to my wife ( who is an excellent listener but has no idea what I am on about) and I told here we used to go in a group but when we got in we normally got split up ,anyway would have to wait for a corner or the ball going into the corner ,then the crowd would rush down and we could jockey our positions on the way back up .I think standing would be better for the atmosphere and deodorants are better now ! There would have to be more safety bars and I think a pen sort of arrangement .The old bars were zigzig and you could get pulled in between too easily ,saying that the noise was brilliant with so many close .
this next comment will disappear I hope but if we didn't go away because we were playing a poor team then we all used to go to "the other side" and watch them playing someone like Leeds or Man U  .The Kop was the worst I ever stood in ,by far the running up and down could be 10 or 15 yards -try doing that backwards with 200 people pushing up ,it was crazy .It brings back a memory ,we used to imbibe of course before the game ,may be 8/10 of us and a round each ,then into the Kop ! after a few minutes we would all want to pee but no way out so we adopted this newspaper thing were we would relieve ourselves down the rolled paper but after 8/10 pints your aim is not what you think and some poor soul in front would have their legs pissed on some times by more than one of us .Quite terrible now but that was the day

This!

I remember the surge forward in Gwladys St when we scored - I was less than 10 years old at the time but memories of being swept away in that roaring tide, like in the belly of a dragon, will stay with me forever.

I could never do that..... wouldn't waste piss on them.. lolol

But back in the day, before they got all up their own arse, you could actually have a good laugh with kopites...the latest spawn of knuckle dragging monosyllabic rejects from frog shit have no redeeming features at all.....apart from being easily offended, even easier to wind up and a total lack of anything close to intelligence.

Seats don't do it for me either, anyone remember the guy in the white coat and the bowler/top hat that led the
singing in the Gwlad? Loved that time probably because of being young, but enjoyed Latchfords 30 just as much
as the 80s titles, even more for some reason can't really explain why. '77 semi robbery still haunts my bones..

First time on the Kop was to watch a United team loaded with Best, Charlton, Law, Styles etc batter the home team senseless and some fucker pissed on me new bobby washables. Found a new use for LFC programmes after that.

Goodison was much more civil. Never got pissed on in the boys pen - just held-up for a threepenny bit and had to bunk the bus home.

I can remember getting the bus with me dad to the match and tommy wright used to get on always sat upstairs and chatted with the lads (me dad and his mates)...then he'd go and play. Imagine that happening nowadays !!

Was on the Kop with a mate, Ron Yeats Testimonial vs Celtic it was. I saw a bird getting shagged, the rolled up paper in action and the blood bath that ensued with the pissed up jocks attacking all and sundry with bricks, sticks and anything else they could get their hands on, even coppers were covered in blood.

That's because on derby days it was full of men.... or under 14's with full muzzies or sidies.

I think his name was 'Ziggy'.. if I remember right he looked like Noddy Older. My ambition was to get on that post... for near but never did.
Does anyone remember Black Beard and 'Handlebars'?

Right on brother. Might have been Noddy who held me up. That Ziggy was a ringer for him. Voice like him as well. Wasn't that Walrus with the handlebars? Black Beard was Bob Carolgees dad wasn't he? Spit!

The bizzies had various names... if you know what I n
mean. Black Beard was a nasty bast ard and took no shit or prisoners. The atmosphere was white  hot for certain games. I remember when Latchford got his 30th against Chelsea... madness in the Park And.

Was that when they 'borrowed' ladders to storm the walls of fortress Anfield due to lack of tickets or penny-pinching?

(Note: Penny pinching was popular in Scotland not long after two scots invented copper wire by fighting over a penny)
