Everton... but not as we know it.

Just returned from my summer hols in Italy (yes, very nice, thank you). I must have visited the country dozens of times in the last 20 years, but this is a new one on me: Everton - purveyors of fine teas. I stumbled across a packet in a bar, and further research revealed....


Didn't our lawyers come down like a ton of bricks a few years ago on some farm shop in Yorkshire for using the name?

Mind you, our PR department could take a leaf our of their book (sorry) when it comes to slogans:

"To preserve what is old and golden and to nourish what is new and radical "

Though perhaps not:

"Welcome to Everton- enjoy every moment".

Anyway - if we need an official Tea supplier to USM Finch Farm, the search is over...

I really want them to sponsor us instead of the current mob. This is the best logo ever:

I would buy both home and away kits.

Well Michael, if the Club didn't know about it before... they do now! I expect the lawyers to be right onto it.

"To preserve what is old and golden and to nourish what is new and radical."

I heard that Everton tea company were founded in 1655. They have instructed their lawyers to take action to force EFC into a name change.

Typical pre-season – people stewing over this kind of thing and spouting rubbish.

Leave it out lads! (Unless you don't urn enough and are getting paid for posting.)
