Everton  met some of there fans in a pub before facup semi at villa park  and had a great time  i also hate liverpool 

 

Everton, loads of uni mates supported them and we were their equal during that era mid 90s

 

Fans are really down to earth too

Norwich - liked their kit as a kid plus some good players they had at the time like Kevin Reeves etc

 

Sunderland - my mate was a Sunderland supporter and used to take me to some of their games, and pre-match went drinking with them. This was in times that would’ve been familiar to us, I saw them pick up the League 2 / Division 3 title under McMenemy at Roker Park, Eric Gates, Marco Gabbiadini, Bennett etc

 

AFC Fylde - a local club to me, working their way through the lower leagues over recent years, now in the Conference, and likely to end up in the Football League eventually. Well run, lovely brand new stadium, and a great Sports Bar to boot. Just 15 mins away by car. Proper, honest, football and fan-friendly. Completely the other end of the scale to us.

 

Re Sunderland... Yes it used to be great when you'd go with mates of other teams  to matches and they'd come to Hillsborough or away matches with me. That was down to affordable tickets though, now no chance my Everton mates would pay forty pounds to enter Hillsborough, ripoff

The only result I look out for other than us is Queens Park in Scotland. Not had a great season so far but did ok in December.

I have a big soft spot for the Blades. 

 

It's a remote bog in Ireland.

Villa and WBA are proper football clubs but not necessarily flavour of the month with current management.

For reasons utterly beyond me, I always look out for Stranraer. They usually lose in front of small crowds (premonition of the future for Wednesday? Lord. I hope not).

 

Also Boreham Wood.  Only because I went to school there and probably made rude noises in the park where they now have their home ground. I like to think the echoes are rolling round there still.

A few years ago a load of Everton fans got turned away from Middlesborough for trying to enter ground with Kids tickets.

He's too busy with refunds to bother with little old me ATM.......

TBH if he let me in I could help him run the club... be easier and less time consuming than my current job.....

And I'm sure more successful. ....

You don't need coaching badges to 

"Run" a football club Welsh. .

I would leave the Coaching side to Martin O Neill and Roy Keane ...

I would deal with the boring stuff like entertaining our fans with good offers and merchandise and making Hillsborough a happier  experience..

Not Rocket Science is it ?
