Ramblings of a frustrated (yet positive) Blue

At times last night the frustration of watching a team clearly out of form got the better of me, as it did thousands alongside me at Goodison.

Well, that's a relief.

Obstructed View – Reflections on the Fulham (A) Game

The sun shone, the t shirts got an airing, the barbecues came out, and a lazy Sunday afternoon ambling around by the Thames relaxed everyone. Anyway, enough of Everton, what did I get up to?

Are we over reacting to Liverpool defeat?

Losing hurts, losing to Liverpool is horrific, but the manner of the 4-0 defeat on Tuesday night has left many Evertonians in a fit of despair and depression.

Obstructed View – Reflections on the Liverpool Game

Sometimes when you're at home, as in your own house, it is easy to get up, switch off the TV, and go and do something else. I don't do that. I don't even leave a game (e.g. Wigan) when we are awful and have no chance of winning a game. So I sat through to … Continue reading Obstructed View – Reflections on the Liverpool Game
