Evertonians On The Merseyside Derby

A look back at your favourite Derby Day Moments.

* 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.

* Without a doubt the best day of my life so far was the 3 nil win at Goodison. What could be better?
1- My 1st derby. (Thankyou 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 Royles first game in charge. Big Dunc and Rideout. Blinding stuff.
This weekend is planned out already. Crate of lager in the fridge, the lads coming round, and watching the 86/87 season review dvd, the "greatest wins over the RS" dvd and the 3 nil derby (again). 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} redshit 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.

* 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. 

* October 1984, Graeme Sharp - need I say more! I come from Bolton and so have never really experienced the build up for months to Derby Day like a lot of Liverpudlians. However I was in the RAF at the time and a Woollyback Shite supporter from St Helens had been giving me jip for weeks about how many they'd stick past us that day. Fuck it I thought - lets go to the match then I can watch that smug smile evaporate from his pasty face. Stopped at his house the night before and off to the game on Saturday. The atmosphere was fantastic, at the time it was really the start of a more friendly rivalry between the two teams which as much as we always look for the Shite result second on a Saturday, was a better time in my opinion. Certainly considering some of the hateful vitriol you sometimes now see on postings boards from both sides of Stanley Park. Anyway I digress.... I was up in the Gods right behind one of the goals. I'm not sure if Everton had that end or not but there were plenty of Blues around. I honestly can't remember anything about the game at all other than the goal. I have never seen a goal being celebrated so enthusiastically either before or since. We were right behind it and as soon as Sharpy had done Lawrenson like a (blue) kipper and had let fly, we could see that Coco the Clown was of his line and it was going in. When it hit the back of the net our section just erupted and I don't think we stopped till the end of the game. For atmosphere it was the best game I have ever been to and I would have paid money just to see my mates face when the ball went in. I lived near London at the time and saw a couple of Charity Shields and also managed to get a stewarding job at the '86 cup final (that's another story) but nothing came close to my one and only trip to Analfield in 1984. Come on you Blue men! Ian Holt.
