The Mail Bag

Light relief

Comments (6)

Some heavy contributions this week, understandably so. I spotted this on the BBC under the heading "Banner of the Week". I haven't noticed it anywhere here:

"Everton FC welcome all Liverpool fans to Merseyside."
Spotted at the Merseyside derby. (Jack, London).

The best Everton banner in recent memory was the one at Villarreal a few years back: "English Champions 1985. Sorry for the delay ? trouble with the neighbours"!!!

In fairness to the wags in the kop, their banner unfurled in Istanbul was a funny one too: Welcome to hell my arse! You should see the Grafton on a friday night!!

Both good examples of Scouse Humour(TM).

Yeah it’s probably the best banner/statement that I’ve ever read. It almost made up for the disappointment of the result.

It was a classic statement but could of finished off saying something like: "and have a safe journey home down the Motorway after the match" etc etc.

The one I hate which was shown at last week’s Derby at Anfield was "This is our City" as unfurled by the RS

Doubt any of you guys watched it, but an Evertonian could be spotted at wrestlemania last weekend!
The biggest pay per view event of all time, due to Floyd Mayweathers fight, and there was a guy bout 2 rows back from the ring with an Everton top on, waving a banner that said ?Feed the Yak!?
The yanks must have thought he was weird, but gave me a smile, well done fella!

Best banner ive seen was at one of the European aways
"Stop global warming. Ban kopites flying to home games"
Another classic was
"This is not just a flag, this is an Everton flag"
