Though Diamond is probably still pissed with himself that he didn't score first...

One thing I deffo remember is George Melly in front of me in the queue getting a train ticket. "Are you going to the match George?" I asked him. A very friendly "Ermmm...Nnnnnnoooo" was his reply. Probably just as well, brown and white brogues and a fedora wasn't really Everton away gear in 95. Up the Toffees!

The weather was poor, my brogues took a battering.

Whatever happened to the excitement of the 3rd Round on a Saturday? Now it can be any day that the TV gods decide.
I am especially miffed as I am flying to New Zealand in a few hours and will miss the game unless it is shown on Dubai TV. I always like cup-ties, so much more meaningful than individual league games. Even when we lose it feels significant Â– then you can let it go for another year.
I can remember some great cup games at Goodison, going right back to Andy Rankin (Everton's second best goalie that I have seen) providing nuisance value on the wing with a broken arm against Sheffield Wednesday. Then we equalised in the last minute for a 2-2 draw and won the replay.
There was a struggle against the mighty Kings Lynn, before we won 4-0. Gazza, back to his best, destroying Leyton Orient 4-1.
Not such good memories of a 0-3 result against Tranmere (the only time that I applauded the opposition team off the field). Also a 2-3 reverse against Bradford City, with Chris Waddle scoring a fantastic goal. I still regard that as the worst Everton performance that I saw at Goodison. One guy behind me in the stand let out a plaintiff wail at one stage Â– clearly his life was not going well and this performance/score sounded like the final straw!
I hope that there is a good cup-tie crowd and atmosphere tonight, whatever the result. It is the FA Cup after all Â– even on a Tuesday!

Should mean a strong line-up if that's true.
I only sorted my season ticket seat yesterday,and it was still available for tonight ... its a half decent spec in the GS so cant see it being more than 25k attendance.

The team owe the fans a good result.
