Sometimes it's better to be a fan than a commentator !! As I've mentioned previously I do look forward to Derby day, the build up and banter is fantastic.
Working on the game though is quite an experience and I do feel privileged to do so. Many I'm sure are envious. However derby day commentary is a little different as...
Many former Everton players were in action for their current clubs over the weekend.
A first goal in over 12 months for striker Francis Jeffers helped Sheffield Wednesday to a 4-1 win over Charlton.
The former Blues striker, who also had a stint with the Addicks, latched onto the end of a Michael Gray cross to break his goalscoring duck.
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 have to start with the Cup draw, after all everyone else has had their say!!
Personally I'm disappointed - David Moyes has said before...

It's the best tie of the fourth round without a shadow of a doubt but it's going to be...
So the Big Day looms large. No, not the Chelsea fixture, Santa's arrival and the inevitable use of the phrase "the hectic Christmas schedule".
Well, don't you believe a word of it this year!!!
A game on Boxing day, followed by one on the Sunday and then a six-day wait until a trip to Macclesfield. Hardly what I'd call "hectic".
Leaving the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday, I was pulled to one side by a fan asking if he could swap his Goodison Park season ticket for an away one. I have some sympathy.
Saturday's win was my highlight of the season to date - real ‘backs to the wall' spirit; up against the alleged richest club in the...
It felt like I was waking from some sort of drunken haze on Monday morning!!!
Did that really happen??!!................It's been a trying week, attempting to piece together the final 60 seconds of Sunday afternoon's drama.
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...
