My Father and other working class heroes

One of the best sports books I've ever read, a hymn by Gary Imlach to his father Stewart Imlach who played with distinction in an era when the rewards were scant and the game tough

Having a quick one in The Champion of Oxford St

Our favourite London boozer...always try to have in there whenever we are down.

Yesterday was dead loss in terms of sport but logistically a compkete success...Lime St was hugely busy but really well organised, got interviewed by Sky Sports then shuffled onto the 7:53 train to Euston, zipped along the Metropolitan Line and nipped into a cafe for a cheeky pizza and beer. Met up with some of the folk we go the game with and headed Wembley. Less said about the rest of the afternoon the better. Suffice to say it's long way to go to not turn up

FA Cup Semi-final tickets. Check!

Phew, felt like a long wait for these but to finally have them in my hand is a relief....just got to get down there now!

Lime St is going to be a bit messy at 7am but hopefully it will all sort itself out.

We're on the march with Moysey's army

Great to see Everton get a quiet, dull, uneventful win against Sunderland today. Was fearful that Sunderland would try to kick us off the park but nothing of the sort happened...instead we had a fairly flat affair. At 0-0 going into the second half it was fairly dull but somehow we managed to score four goal in the second half (two of them pretty much identical) and run out easy winners. Great way to send the boys off down to Wembley

Hibbert Scores, we riot!

If Tony Hibbert scores the winner at Wembley our estimates show that this would be the destruction radius :

London, you have been warned.

Wembley Seating Plan for the West Stand

This might be useful for blues trying to work out where their FA Cup Semi Final seats are in the Everton end (West Stand) :

The blocks correspond with the areas either side of the aisles as far as I can tell

You can assess your view and the official Wembley website too, this will do nicely for us Wembley Stadium Block 132

Tell me Ma, me Ma...I don't want no tea, no tea.

This is exactly the same title I posted with in 2009. Hope this semi-final lives up to the last one because that was basically a perfect day. Spent a lot of time this morning looking at this :



However the system is spot on, once in you just pick your seats...allocate them to your friends and family (In this case Anne and my mates Mary & Paul) and you are done. I then had to wait a further 25 minutes because I promised another friend I’d complete his (and his 5 mates) ticket order too.


Done now though.
