Merry Christmas

Comments (82)

I would just like to thank Michael, Lyndon and all other mods for keeping the best Everton site going for another full year.

Also a very Merry Christmas to all ToffeeWebbers.

Cheers one and all.

Thanks, Dave, and back at ya!

We wouldn't be what we are today without the contribution of fans like you. Thinking about having a break on Christmas Day, closing down the comments, so we can all do other stuff ? for one day of the year!

(Disclosure: The wife's getting an iPad and I wanna play with it!)

Merry Christmas to One and All!

Here, here!! Living in the US, this site keeps me connected to my team, its fans and to some degree to the homeland in general.

Will be back in the UK on Boxing Day and look forward to driving up from Poole for Everton vs. Spurs on January 5th (brrr!!!). Will be my first game since 2004 ... I never thought I would see another game at Goodison, but here goes ... and of course game will be followed by a few pints and a curry with my brother and some mates, celebrating our climb up the table :-)

Merry Christmas and Big Thanks to Michael, Lyndon and everyone who contributes.

It is always a source to be consulted even if the mind boggles sometimes at some of the content on here. It's also a great laugh by the way.

"Universal agreement in a Toffeeweb mailbag article! It's a miracle! Merry christmas folks!"

Hang on a minute.

What is it with all this Christmas cheer and festive spirit shite? I'm sick of this freezing cold weather, cockeyed carol singers wailing like they're trapped down a well, and that annoying Toys'R'Us ad that's been on every year for the last fucking twenty years.

Every year I hope for some decent pressies and instead get fobbed off with socks and slippers. No way am I accepting such low quality gifts. Nil Satis Nisi Optimum and all that.

I blame that Santa Claus cunt. He's taken Christmas as far as he can. His tactics are the same every Christmas Eve. Captain Birdseye beard, big sack, red romper suit, flying reindeer, shitty sled, arse wedging chimney crawl. It's boring safety first shite. If he starts with Rudolph again this year and a lone elf up front then he's got to go.

Well said lads - to all the TW gang, thanks for the smiling Moysie picture. Festive greetings to all from li' ole Houston in Texas.
And the news gets better by the day since the Man City win......Bainsey, on the Bayern Munich/Manure crap............quote 'I tied myself to the club in the summer and I have no intentions of leaving the club, I am not looking elsewhere,' said Baines.

'I am completely focused on what I am doing here and have only just committed myself to the club. I am just concentrating on playing for Everton.'

Dear Santa, would it be possible to have an interactive button on the TW site that lists the posts I've made comment on (say, over a 5 day period) or takes you directly to them.

Its Christmas! Merry Christmas to one and all, thank you to Michael and Lyndon and everyone who posts on this great site.

It's funny, we are all over the world yet our hearts are in Goodison Park... passionate, stubborn, daft as a brush... thats all of us summed up for another year.

Christmas decorations are up, the tree is glowing and so am I, with several glasses of beer and wine, everything is rosy... dam it I can even see how well Moyes has done...

But then I think of BK and need another drink ? badly.

To the players of our great club I would say you have the best supporters in the land, remember that every time you pull on a shirt.

To all our supporters, here, have a drink... its not so bad after a couple is it?

To Michael, Lyndon ? cracking site, nothing as good anywhere else... long may we have the soapbox and yes we step over the line but only because we love our club.

To the regulars who post and argue ? don't stop ? you're great. Each and every one of you.

So... I must find another bottle, look at the Matthew Street webcam again and smile, and make it a Scouse Christmas Down Under... Miss the snow, miss the games, too bloody hot for Christmas. I will switch the air con on as a sign of solidarity with those freezing their butts off in Lime Street...

Pass me another beer... Merry Christmas everyone!!

I confess to feeling more than apprehensive when I first posted, I may miss the point sometimes, may not quite get it, and sometimes I feel like the solitary (token) female but you show me no quarter (scary at times) but I always seem to have the last word... sound familar?

From another thread, re athletes (of which I am not): "...they conform to a standard somatotype. They are adapted in a way that increases their aerobic and and anaerobic thresholds. They are also in a state of atrophy."

As D Wilson says, you usually learn something ? I think I conform to the wrong somatotype; that might explain my current state of atrophy!
