Just to let you know that a large group of dedicated Everton fans from Norway will be at Goodison Park on Friday to see the game against Burnley, this being their annual trip together which happens once a season, although I know many of them are there for quite a few games!

The trip was booked a while ago, and nearly half of them had to re-book flights when the game was moved from Saturday to Friday, which meant they would arrive too late for kick-off. Then, as they had got all that sorted, SAS airlines went on strike which meant quite a few of them had to start from scratch again.

Some of them have a day's drive to get to an airport that can get them to the game, and have to fly all over Europe to other airports to get connecting flights!

Unluckily, not all of them could find a route. But, talk about dedication to your team... Give them a good welcome; even better – buy them a pint! Have a great trip, Lads (and Lasses)!

All Evertonians, and Roy Castle, would be proud of those Norwegian blues. I hope their efforts are rewarded by an entertaining win on Friday.

I've often spotted a Norwegian flag on the front of the Lower Gwladys. Is it these lads by any chance?

It'll be Roy's rendition of "Dedication's what you need" from Record Breakers.
A right tenuous link if ever there was one lol.

Listen, Tony, if they are travelling all the way from Norway, then I'm sure they've got enough money to buy me a pint!

Nice one Andy, and they probably will!

Well they picked a great game to go to. Hope they made it to see a wonderful first half display by the lads. Moving the game to Friday night was a bit strange but for those watching at home nice to get some good one sided coverage and a Jagielka love in. Coynb

Here's me thinking a Norwegian Blue was a parrot, that frequented the fjords in a Monty Python sketch.

Seriously though, it's great to see fans (from other countries who are Blues) and their dedication, in what they have to go through in arranging a visit to Goodison.

Hat's off to the guys from Norway, I'm glad retrospectively of course that they witnessed a win. Although I did feel the second half needed a fillip to provide the fans a fonder farewell, although not complaining, just being critical.

I noticed a small flag last night behind the Park End goal "San Diego Blues."

God knows what time they'll get home!

There's a hard core supporters club of Blues in Norway, I've been as a guest many years ago, and helped them get some parties above the Wilmslow.

They're keen and despise the RS, like we do.

The Brann Bergen game in 2008, was as an epic lager fest, great spirit, but the most expensive bevy in a long, long time, but a very nice city, and we had a great result, that day.

Let's see what happens by 5 pm today with the scores.
