This game will be my best Everton "memory" as I will be bringing my eldest daughter with me for the first time for her first match. She's only 4 and has talked about nothing else since I told her I'd got her a ticket yesterday. I hope she'll be fine and enjoy it and want to go again.She's been shouting "come on you Baggies" all day ha ha
Besides the obvious one I recall 1979? We played Everton at the Hawthorns & the Three Degrees sang on the pitch before the game. It created a wonderful atmosphere and I'm sure you have all been there, you just knew that we couldn't lose! Bennett played at right back, I think his debut and he marked Thomas (good winger) out of the game. We won 1-0.When I was a young lad??? (around the time of the Oliver Cromwell) there was a documentary on tv called 'the Golden Vision' it was about Everton who in those days where nicknamed the Millionaires. Alex Young was the Golden Vision and his everday life at Everton.The last memory is a song after we won the cup:The drums are banging, the symbols clanging as Albion play away.Gordon West in the Everton goal is having a poxy day, Astle scores one, Cattericks got the sack & wev'e won the F.A. Cup & running around the trackDa Da da r etc.Can't remember where the tune came from? Does anyone remember??
Well done mate another Baggie for the furture.
Being at Goodison Park drinking with Bob Taylor and his partner pre match, my daughters lifetime hero, and all the time his partners saying ''I'm sure I know you'', (she didn't), and insisisted on taking my photo... Bob just killing himself laughing... We drew 1-1..... Best recent memory, In the Smethwick with the Everton fans singing '' eff all, you've never won eff all ''... The reply as one man?... '' FA Cup in 68, FA cup in 68''... Priceless. Happy New year one and all
