I thought the festive season was well and truly over, but suddenly I feel like a little child at Xmas time again! The anticipation, excitement, tension and importantly the belief.
The build up to derby day always gets to me, but with two games in six days I'm not sure I'll come through it with my sanity still intact!
Having taken a "blog" break for a couple of weeks over Christmas it's great to return with so much to look forward to... our team in a fine run of form and, of course, the FA Cup.

I've spoken to many an Evertonian over the course of the week and the reaction's been pretty similiar.........some couldn't sleep Sunday night, some found it difficult...
Having sat alongside many an ex-footballer during my time in the Radio City commentary role, it goes without saying that they all believe they can still play a bit!!!
