Speak to the other continental support clubs and ask advice about setting one up in Nigeria yourself?

https://www.evertonfc.com/club/supporters-clubs/supporters-clubs-directory

That lists contacts from all over - seems South Africa is the only country in Africa to have a full & proper supports club.

Welcome!

There's been a big connection with Everton and Nigeria over the last 25 years or so hasn't there

Daniel Amokachi was adored, Joseph Yobo was a big part of the team for a long time, The Yak smashed them in for us, Big Vic was a bit of a cult hero and now Naija boy himself, Alex Iwobi is in the house!

have always had a soft spot for Nigeria. also the new kits are ace

Impressive how they keep making better kit designs for Nigeria each and every time.

Barkley's dad was Nigerian as well, wasn't he?

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

I met Joseph Yobo once. He shook my hand and signed my programme.

That's it. That's all I have.

Loved Joey Yobo and have a soft spot for Nigeria myself. I remember watching nwanku kanu score a great goal in the Olympics when he was v young.

My old champ man sides used to be stacked with nigerians... Taribo west, Yobo, bakayoko, kanu and okocha.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

That's a mighty bold statement but I'm struggling to come up with alternative's other than
Jagielka
Weir
Gough
Distin
Lescott
Stubbs
Stones
Heitinga

I'm not saying all of the above were better than him but would argue Jags and arguably Distin were

I remember we conceded a goal to Charlton because Yobo was tying his bootlace and the ball rolled past him. Other than that he was really good for us until the latter stages of his time with us. I hated that every season he was linked with a move to arsenal though.
