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 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

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 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

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 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!

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.
Never under estimate the power of the ( blue ) Force

The planets have aligned! Harmony and Peace!

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.
