Hi all, thanks for reading my blog. I really appreciate the feedback and support!

Rob – yeah, I retook it when I was writing that post up and it gave me Aston Villa. So I’m chalking it up to fate on that first attempt and not any any special BuzzFeed magic. :)

Tried it again then it said Chelsea. How spooky is that considering they’re our first two home games!

Rob I tried that test and firstly I got Palace and then I got the unmentionables I'm off to see my doctor to see what is wrong with me. I'll be in rehab for months.

Rob, You are correct, I did choose cheese on my second go.

Reminds me of a story of a daft red-nose who every time he got the bus to the match (local pub) he was always asked by his mates what his missus had put on his sarnies. Every game, week-in & week-out, he would open the parcel of butties and every time he would reveal that she had made cheese sandwiches.

One week, he got so fed up with the excitement his mates showed and the barracking that he received from them, that he lashed his sandwiches out of the window of the bus into the street. His mates all went crazy and said this week's contents could have been different. The lad protested and said that they would almost certainly have been cheese – how do you know though you can't be certain they exclaimed. "Yeah I can," he said, "Last night she stayed at her mother's and I made the sarnies meself"!

A proper supporter. He hit the nail right on the head.

Everton supporter = Sports masochist.

Made the right choice then, William. As you said, you have always been an Evertonian, just never knew it. Hopefully you have joined us just in time for one of our best seasons for a few years.

Get used to ToffeeWeb as well. They take no prisoners on here, but it can be a good laugh, particularly on the Live Forum during our games.

Welcome to the fold William, from Houston, Texas.
Ha - and I tried that test and got EVERTON.
Yes, must have been the bacon sarnie

Welcome to you up in OK, from the other side of that nasty R** River ;-)

A native of Liverpool*, and adopted by Austin TX, but not a Longhorn, except I live only 1 mile from UT stadium, so it's bloody hard to avoid burnt orange at times .....

* well ... strictly speaking, for the pedants, I am from West Kirby "on the Wirral", a hop and a skip from Liverpool on the train or ferry; but Dad - also a William - was from Bootle and I still have family there, so I think get grandfathered (fathered?) in ... and no-one knows where the Wirral is unless they've been there anyway ...

It must have been that Dutch cheese, Edam, that's the one with the Red Shite on the outside.
