As I am planning to travel to Sligo for this game, does anyone know what sort of squad Everton are sending? After playing in Germany on Saturday, surely it won't be the senior squad.

I was tempted to go tomorrow, but I went the last time we played a friendly in Ireland (v Bohemians 2006) and a youth team turned up, which included Anichebe. It was a boring 0-0. So I would not expect too much tomorrow other than a training exercise.

We're coming back though lads, I'm in China and my mate who's a yank has been asking if I can get him an Everton shirt.
Of course I can!
I'll be watching come Saturday, drinking Kilkenny, (what a drink), shame its about six and half quid a pint!

I'd have this seasons kit by now if i could buy it in Dublin for ?50 euro like every other premiership jersey but the same kit costs ?80 to get sent over here.
A pre season friendly with the full Everton squad once every few years would be appreciated too. It cant cost any more to fly to Dublin than it cost to fly to Norwich and they could easily use the excellent facilties at Carton house that were good enough for Real Madrid, Newcastle and Villareal in the last few seasons. And all Irish clubs would jump at the chance of a money spinning friendly.

There are some stores in Dublin were you can get an Everton kit, keep trying. You have to somehow ignore all the RS and ManU stuff which is near the door! But I agree that the club could do better with it's marketing of itself in Ireland. (Wonder where I've heard that before?) I don't think they can do do much about the euro v sterling rate though, which, by the way, is a lot more favourable than it used to be.

Im nearly 100% sure an Everton kit cannot be bought in Dublin or anywhere in Ireland for that matter. Its part of the arrangement with Kitbag sports i believe. If you could tell me where i could find an Everton kit in Dublin i would buy it today. The club has to be losing money on this.
21 Posted 09/08/2010 at 12:53:47
Beggars belief why the club don't have a distribution outlet in Ireland considering the support the club has here.

There definitely was somewhere in the Jervis Centre but admittedly that was a few years ago. So maybe you are right with your more up to date scenario with Kitbag. They definitely used to be available though under previous manufacturers. You could try heading North as a possible solution.

Everton kits and merchandise can only be bought online thru the Everton web site. The only other way to get the kit is to fly to Liverpool and go to Everton 1 which is beside Goodison or Everton 2 which is in the city i believe.
Its so frustrating not been able to walk into Lifestyle/Champion etc and just pick up a jersey which was the case until a few years ago. They cant be got up north either.
Bought last years away jersey online and it cost me 80 euro which is a fair whack especially when we only keep our kits for one season.
