Back in my seat

Comments (6)

It had been almost eighteen month's since I'd been back at Goodison but today I made my long awaited and fortunate return.

The devastation of having to give up my season ticket for University was heartbreaking. Not even the heavy student nights and the early morning hangovers could ease the pain of not being able to see the boys in blue every other weekend.

It was great to be back. We'd only just parked the car an were already being welcomed by the polite young lads offering so generously to mind our car.

Arriving into the stadium, still the same friendly steward. Was nice to see he still recognised me. Up the stair's I went, I noticed the golden goal lady wasn't there any more.

Making my way back to my seat, soaking in the smell of warm meat and potato pies and Chang beer on the way, all part of one big recipe that creates that special Goodison atmosphere.

And then there I was, back in my seat, where I've longed to be and where I belong.

My boys on the field and my own team of well over thirty thousand people all around me.

Supporters young an old, there no matter the weather. Let the Z-Cars music play, and let us all stand up together.

Two scandalous examples of the possessive apostrophe. Why not for fun seek them out and inform his dean?
