Lucky Jumper or not?

Comments (31)

Looking outside the window this afternoon & at the forecast for the weekend, should I wear my lucky jumper to the match?

I've worn it for every FA Cup game so far (only missed Macclesfield) & whilst it kept me warm on a cold night at Anfield, it's not going to look great with shorts & flip flops tomorrow!

So, do I wear it & boil? Tie it round my waste or over my shoulders & look out of place? Or leave it at home?

Anyone else out there going with lucky clothing?

My wife had washed my current shirt for the Macclesfield game and I had to wear an old one. Come the away game at L’pool current one was clean so I wore that. For the replay new shirt not ready so wore the old one again needless to say it’s been the same for the rest of the run. Now developed into a complete outfit!

My son rekons that we will only win if we do everything the same for the final as we did for the semi - got there at 1.30 had three pints in the ground, unfortunately we met some random bloke from Reading and chatted to him for ages. So if anyone knows Tommy from Reading send him to the bars near block 121!!

God I’m nervous

Living in Dublin I wasn’t able to make the Gosling Derby.
I was watching it at home, and towards the end of the game my wife entered the room .She had bought a pair of pants for her Dad that day that did not fit him.She asked me to try them on as we’re of similar build.As I was prancing around the room in them Everton scored.Cue cartwheels etc.I removed the pants and handed them back to my wife and sat back to enjoy the after match analysis.
The following morning I woke up and as I was getting dressed I asked my wife where the pants from last night were.Surprised, she told me they looked a bit tight on me and she was bringing them back to the shop.
"No way" I said" they’re my lucky pants"
They’ll be at Wembley tomorrow, a little tight at the waist but every little helps, eh?

I’ve worn the same rangers shirt underneath a cahill shirt with a tweed coat on top through the rounds- I will lose half a stone in sweat tomorrow gladly. The Royal Mail lost the special delivery- first claiming it had been scanned in then never scanned out, today they changed their story to ’we never received it’ Make sure if you’re in block 511 you’re in the right seat!
I go through all this for the Blues, in the vain hope of some kind of reward, Webb sending off 4 Chelsea players, 98th minute winner off Saha’s backside etc, anything will do. There’s no way it could mean as much to other clubs.
Believe in the Toffees

I know exactly how you feel. I’ve had a lucky jumper this season. Hope it doesn’t go to extra-time and pens as I will need plenty of water as it’s a thick jumper!!!

WEAR THE DAMN JUMPER if for no other reason than it’ll prove be a sunny day!!

If it’s the jumper that does it, KEEP IT!! If we lose and you’ve not taken it you’ll only kick yourself!!!

Just bear in mind that if you don’t take it and we lose, you will have to suffer the consequences of forever wondering if you were responsible!

I had an interview today, but couldn’t find any blue cufflinks to go with the pink shirt I had carefully selected from my summer collection last night. I resigned myself to buying some on the way, but on the way out the door, I stumbled upon a pair of royal blue knots in the kitchen. Muhaha I thought - ’tis a sign.

I always said I’d never get a new Everton top back when I bought the Danka, until Everton win another trophy... so, the Danka will be worn tomorrow and here’s hoping that dreadful LCS makes its way on to my shopping list!

I have worn the home shirt to the game 3 times this season; Blackburn at home, Pompey at home and more recently Man City at home. It’s safe to say it will NOT be going to Wembley with me!

I nicked my 3 year olds everton badge and wore it at the semi. When I got back he was on to me and has since told me I cant take it the final.

Do I sneak into his room at 5 in the morning and just take it or not. After all it’ll be the missus that sees his tantrum not me.

I can’t remember for the life of me what I had on watching the semi final, however since we’re on a clothing theme help me out...

1991 NEC home shirt
1996 Danka home shirt
2003 120 Years Top Flight
1970s retro

Come on guys, our success depends on this.

I haven’t had my haircut for the entire cup run, it’s now as mad as it was in the eighties so you all know what that means. Success.

Wear the jumper, without question!

I have a pair of hideous Everton wristbands which I was given by my Nanna on a visit to Liverpool in the mid-70’s. I wear them religiously every morning right before the match. (To clarify, it’s "morning" before the match because I’m watching from Vancouver, Canada.)

They’ll be on for sure tomorrow morning, in all their threadbare glory!

Jumper?? how could you not.

Everybody, please, please, please, DON’T buy anything new to wear to the Final, I bought a new scarf in ’68 and we lost. The next year I also bought the biggest fuck off King Edward cigar I could find for a victory smoke after the 69 semi Vs City.

Stick with the tried and tested.

P.S. Do not give in to the darkside of the Force;

No matter how much you have the feeling and or dream of the correct score or scorer ( my dream said 2-2 at 90mins and a win on pennos, at 22-1 I am sorely tempted but will reluctently desist ) DON’T put any money on. The fates will punish you for using your powers to gain mere money.

And finally;

Never under estimate the power of the ( blue ) Force

Lucky Jumper mate, you gotta.
We have a lucky outfit we wear every match. Last week we got our new born Niece an Everton kit, my Sister wore my 3rd kit and my bro inlaw wore my Green goalie shirt and we won against Fulham, 1st time in 43 years. They’re all gonna be kitted out today, and we’ve proudly converted them into true blue Evertonians. This one’s for you Leia, our new lucky Everton charm.
