Congratulations, Bluenoses downunder!

Comments (11)

Congratulations to all those who put together such a professional, well organised, slick looking website for the Everton Supporters Club Australia! It really makes me proud being an Aussie seeing this being put together: Much like the feeling I get Cahill everytime he belts the daylights out of the corner post when he scores.

People regularly go on about Everton having the best fans in the world and Toffeeweb and this website are indicative of the level and commitment of support that we, as fans give to the club. Can anyone tell me is their an equivalent "ToffeeWeb" for any other PL club on the net? I havent found one so far.

So.. I felt much disappointment when I stumbled upon the Everton's Supporter's Club, London Area web site. Being such a big city and probably a large haven for Everton supporters, this website lacks professionalism and any sense or organisation or thought and is very archaic. This could be a supporter's site for any club, much like other independent PL club websites appear to be. This is Everton, and it deserves better.

I'm sure you have blue blood running in your veins but let's show some true blue pride like your peers have done and put some effort into the site. I'm sure it will help attract membership too.. If the Kwis can put something decent together, then surely you can!

Oh dear, Scott; looks like you've been in Yankeeland a bit too long already. Their unparalleled geographical incompetence as a nation is rubbing off on you already.

I think he was referring to the bluesaders website run from Christchurch New Zealand as a comparison. An Australian referring to his own people as Kiwis would be analogous with a Scot referring to his people as English.
However in saying this, when a Kiwi Prime Minister was questioned about the large amount of kiwis leaving New Zealand for a life in Australia he replied that it was of no real importance other than increasing the national IQ of both countries.

Probably a little harsh on ESCLA there, Scott. Not all organisations are fortunate enough to have a professional web designer at their disposal... with the time on their hands to create something good for next to nothing. Because that?s pretty much the situation with the vast majority of fans websites ? they?re built and maintained by fans out of love because they can?t afford the services of a pro. ToffeeWeb is just lucky to have a web professional by trade on staff although the success of BlueKipper is testament to the fact that looks aren't everything.

I lived in melbourne for ten years, and in that time did not see, hear or know of any toffees, apart from those that are sold in sweet shops.

I would bet that there are red shite and manchester united "supporters" back there, but fans of this club must be a rarity.

I dont doubt that there are toffees down under as a supporters club indicates. For a country that brought to such delights as Kylie Minogue, Crowded House and Prisoner Cell Block H, everton in australia seems a bit out of place.

A bit like having a kangaroo bar or a koala reserve in Bootle.

That would soon change if EFC went out there for pre-season and played a few friendlies against A-League teams.

Brilliant, our site in Oz in finally live.

A big thanks to all who got it sorted and our numbers are now going to grow and grow.
If anyone wants to know how we fare against the Red Shite check out the ?pub comp? section? on when we gave them a right good battering a few months ago.

Craig Cena: Crowded House are a KIWI band i.e. from NEW ZEALAND...Class act so doubtless they have a penchant for the toffees!

Hi Craig

As a Kiwi who loves Everton I couldn’t let the comment about Crowded House being Australian Stand!!!!

As a small country we can’t let those dirty Aussies (I secretly am fond of aussies I must confess!) claim one of our bands!!!

I also though that Scott may have been referring to the Bluesaders website from Christchurch?

Kiwi-tonians unite, let not the convicts triumph. There must be enough of us to set up our own local web page. Although I am severely digitally illiterate, we must have a potential Webmaster in our midst and am quite willing to chip in with some admin tasks and some shared start up costs. txt to 0211098002.
