THERE are 20 reasons to buy a ticket for the Everton FC v CD Everton game at Goodison Park on Wednesday 4 August. Below are reasons 1 to 10.
From Monday (5 July) season ticket holders can for ONE WEEK ONLY buy a ticket for just £7, or just £3 for juniors and under-16s.
The first ten reasons are:
1) See a top South American club. CD Everton were champions of Chile just two years ago and played in the Copa Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the Champions League. Three weeks before meeting us, they will be resuming their league campaign with a visit to their country's top club, Colo-Colo, and so they will be in top gear.
2) Get into Goodison for just £10, sorry, £7 if you are a season ticket holder and buy BEFORE Monday 12 July.
3) Visit Goodison for the first time in three months and avoid withdrawal symptoms.
4) See the most attractive game at Goodison in August. Apologies to Mick McCarthy.
5) Run your eyes over our new signings although, due to the World Cup, Messi may still be on holiday...
6) Take the kids for just £3 each.
7) Take Grandad for just £3.
8) Be there for a celebration of a unique round-the-world link. The visitors named their club after us in 1909; what a compliment! So, if you know your history...
9) It is one of only two games at Goodison between now and mid-September... although we could also get Dagenham at home in the Carling Cup.
10) See the sun set over the Park End. "A moment of stunning urban beauty," wrote Bill Bryson in Notes From County Road.
Reasons 11 to 20 to follow...
Evertonia 2010-11 members can buy tickets for £10 and £3 (juniors and OAPs) from Monday 10 July. Tickets go on general sale on Thursday 15 July at £10 and £3 (juniors and OAPs).

I doubt Moyes would play Messi after today anyway.

Failing that, even if you haven't got last season's card, as long as you know your customer reference number, you could give that in instead.

The home kit is the same as Boca Juniors - blue shirts & shorts with a yellow band across the chest. For our match they will be palying in all yellow with a blue band across the chest - we, of course, will be in our new kit.

A genuinely unique event - Everton V Everton.
I've also been hoping it would happen for years and will be able to go coz it's the day before I go on hols.
As Pa Larkin would say 'Loveley Jubblee!" (or 'perfick' or something)
Could be problems on the day though.
Cut to red-faced lunatic: "GET A FUCKING GRIP EVERTON, YOU'RE PLAYING LIKE SHITE YOU LAZY CUNTS!!"
Chile Everton player: "But seeenyorrrr, we are weeeening 3-0! We are how ju say, 'peeeessing all over ju'"
Red faced lunatic: "No not YOU Everton, I mean THEM Evert.....oh forget it!"

Mike, I reckon the plural of Juventus is Juventii, a referee-bribing tribe from Northern Italy.
Can't wait for the game, a reason to dust off my CD Everton top, last worn for Villareal away and I'm proud to say it still fits!

Both Liverpool & Barcelona (Uruguay & Ecuador) were named after the respective cities in 1915 and 1925. Everton FC were champions when Liverpool were renamed in Montevideo but the port would have been full of ships with "Liverpool" on their sterns.
In South America there are two genuine top flight clubs renamed after older European clubs: Rangers in Chile and Corinthians in Brazil. There are additional "Everton" clubs in Argentina, Peru and Chile ? mainly local, amateur community clubs ? as well as the clubs identified in www.theruleteros.com.
