Distant friends

By Dick Fearon :  29/11/2009 :  Comments (1) :
Not long to go before the game kicks off and Evertonians world wide are quietly waiting, some with hope others in trepidation a few brave souls with confidence.

Fate decreed that there are many thousand of us based in far flung corners of the globe. I can assure our brothers at the game that we are no less as passionate and via every device known to man we will be tuned in sharing your joys and should the gods not smile on us, the tears.

For that 90 minutes, Kirkby will be forgotten, we are the people we are one, I include Blue Bill in that.

May the best team win and that kind of genteel stuff are of no consequence here, that is left to less important games.

Our team has got to prove they want it as badly as us. They need to do whatever it takes in any way possible to win. Mostly of all I hope the referee is awake to Gerrard’s dives and those of his protégé NGog.

Pardon the bloody awful grammar but derby games have that of effect on me.

Dick - in case the carrier pigeons haven’t got there yet, Kirkby has been forgotten. Rather like the mythical Norwegian Blue it has shuffled off this mortal coil and gone to join the choir invisible. It is an ex-DK.

I heard a guy on the radio say that Kirkby was on The Wirral. Now that would have been really interesting!

Referee Wiley today? I rate Pienaar as a very honest footballer. He was pulled up once for running in straight line towards the ball with an opponent’s arm across his chest. A fair few similar decisions went against us, and it seemed to me that they could tackle from behind with impunity. I think the only thing he did get right was to tell those cheating bastards to piss off when they were trying to tell him how to run the game. Come to think of it, this happened so often at least one of them should have been carded.

Moyes says he is relieved that the Kirkby thing is behind us, and his team’s best midfield performance since September promises better things to come. We all pray for that.
