* 1978 at Goodison has to be my personal favourite. With it being seven years since the last time we beat them, this made it all the more sweeter. Sixteen years old, stood in the Street End with my butchers coat proudly adorned along with my 'I Hate Emlyn Hughes' and 'Bobby Latchford Walks On Water' tin badges, prominently displayed. This was dreamland stuff! Andy(is our)King lashing in over 'Big Nose Clemence' from 25 yards. It was time to party. The Shite even had a late goal disallowed by linesman Des Tweats who ran a paper shop round the corner from me. Needless to say, I continually thanked him until he recently died. 7 years since we beat the Shite and No.7 Andy King puts it to bed. Great days. Harvey Shearer. Poulton-le-Fylde.

* My best derby moment was when Kevin Campbell scored down the kop end where I was sitting. The faces on the redshite fans was a picture. It was so funny. I will be with our fans on Saturday and hoping for the same result. COYB. NIL SATIS SISI OPTIMUM. Dave.

* Without a doubt the best day of my life so far was the 3-0 win at Goodison. What could be better?

1- My 1st derby. (Thank you to West Country Blues for that)
2- Sitting right behind the goal in the lower Gwladys.
3- Giving them a hiding
4- The pure comedy value of AJ's 2nd.
5- The singing.
6- Getting home in time to get all the pints I was owed by the Kopites who bet me a pint they'd win.

The perfect day. The Mrs. has a video on her phone of me singing and in tears at the full time whistle. What an emotional day. It wasn't even ruined by the gobshites that attacked and smashed the windows of our bus on the way home!!! Other great memories include Joe Royle's first game in charge. Big Dunc and Rideout. Blinding stuff. It's a grand old team to play for... Spencer Bishop.

* Has to be the 3-0. It was my birthday that day, what a present. I had a bet on 2-0, so was probably the only Blue gutted when AJ got the third. A few pints soon made me forget about my lost winnings though. 2-1 this week. Thanks. Neil Gribbin.

* My best derby moment was taking my bird at the time who was a redshite (never been, never will) redshite went 1-0 up and she turned and give me two fingers. Goals from Mo Johnstone and Beardo saw me give her the two fingers back with a double fuck off! The journey home was strangely quiet. Anyway she is long gone now. Happy days indeed. Johnny Whitts.

* The 3-0 win at Goodison with Cahill and Andy Johnson scoring. Made even more memorable by the shite goalkeeping of Pepe the clown and the worst supporters in the world, who had disappeared, every last one of them before the final whistle had gone.

It goes to prove a point I've said all along, that the redshite supporters only support success. When they get beat they don't want to know. Evertonians support the club, the team, the players, no matter what the results on the pitch. We are there for them and always will be. I've got the Blue Kipper wallpaper showing the away corner in the Bullens road, which I keep on my PC in work. The redshite always ask what it is and when I tell them they shuffle away with their tale between their legs. COYB. Cookie.

"O there's a great chance here for Gosling...still...OOOO what a fantastic winner!"
Luke, Liverpool, 1:08 AM 5/05/2013
The Gosling goal. Dont think I will ever get over it. The redshite were slowing the remaining minutes of extra time down for penalties... smug looks on their faces. I wanted to be anywhere but Goodison at that moment. Literally seconds later, I wouldn't have been anywhere else in the world... I did not know that I could jump so high in the air from a sat down position. It was bedlam. Loved hearing moyesies name being sung from all corners as people were leaving the stadium and the wilmslow was just excellent afterwards.

I think Howy's first game was a derby, beat them at Goodison, Bally, 1-0 at Goodison, think it was an FAC game, 2-0 at analfield (anal road end), deffo big Joe, and possibly the 'Whit', Imre Varadi at Goodison, FAC, Kingy obviously, I was abroad for others...I hate those bastards...NSNO.
Colin Evans, Gloucester (WCB)., 12:53 PM 3/05/2013
Andreiiii... Andrei Kanchelskis! Those fucking cocky bastards behind us in their pissy smelling stand had themselves down for a thumping win against us that day. The whinging from them when Kanchelskis ripped into them for his 2nd before nearly completing his hat trick was pure quality! Despite his later failings in a blue shirt, I will always love the dodgy bastard for that day and it will live with me forever!

1997 and 2010 wins are best Derby memories for me. For 1997, I was 13 and was on some sort of organised river cruise for the day. Had made about 10 bets for £5 each with various people that Everton had won. Thank god they did, as I had no way of paying out if they had not! 2010 at Goodison was special as I managed to get 2 tickets to see it live. 2 great goals and a great performance from the boys in blue. Liverpool was absolutely brilliant atmosphere that night. Every blue was out celebrating!

I agree Lee Carsley. It was my wedding day. What away to to seal me fate. lol
Dean, Alfreton, 11:33 PM 2/05/2013
I was also lucky enough to be at the Carsley derby, one of the best days of my life...met Graeme Sharp (my childhood idol) in the VIP marquee before the game and Duncan Ferguson in his car outside the Wilmslow after the game! Remember staying behind in the ground for 15-20 mins after the final whistle just to savour the atmosphere....spent the rest of the afternoon/evening/night getting right royally unforgettable day!!!

Mine haas to be my first Derby when Super Lee Carsley scored and Cahill ended at the top of the pile up. We hadn't beat them in almost 6 years and the city was buzzing that night! Hopefully its the same this BH weekend - COYB

There's nothing better than being in the kop when we win over there. I was in there for Sharpy's blammer and the following year for Ratters' 30 yard bibbly bobbly through the clown's hands. Priceless.
Rob , Liverpool, 3:50 PM 2/05/2013
The best derby has to be the Lee Carsley one. From the morning of the game right through to the late hours. The ale was flowing and the atmosphere was amazing. Kopites looking devastated leaving the game and some one hitting the deck falling off a table outside the oak and the bizzes carting him off, the oak was amazing after the game that day !!! More of the same please eh !!!
