There is always something quite startling about learning that someone involved in professional sport is suffering from cancer.
As naive as it may be, you just don't expect such physically fit, clean-living people to be afflicted in such a devastating manner. Cancer does not discriminate and there are no guarantees, no matter who you are.
Despite that, nothing can prepare you for...
It’s been a long time since I blogged, but I’m back to give you my thoughts on a regular basis again this season and no more appropriate time to kick things off than a Merseyside derby.
As a commentator it’s not something I particularly look forward to, primarily because for the sake of good balance for our listeners on Radio City...
Five years. Half a decade. Sixty months.
That’s how long it’s been since the Blues made as good a start to the season as this one.
The season of 2006-07 was the last time Everton started the season as well, and the last time I penned a blog was August 19 ahead of the QPR game. I stressed evading the notorious slow...
Watching a paunchy Muscovite roll up the hem of his grubby vest to expose his swollen belly to the 32 degree heat was concerning.

Well I don’t know about you, but I’m delighted the transfer window is now firmly shut for the next four months!
Like most Evertonians, I woke up last Wednesday with very few expectations that our day would be quite as busy as it was. I think everything that can be said has been said about Mikel Arteta’s move to Arsenal. I...
Everton fans are used to watching big strikers with tattoos – not that the crest on Denis Stracqualursi’s right calf will mean a lot to them.
A native of Rafaela – not far from Rosario, the birthplace of Leo Messi – Stracqualursi is a fanatical supporter of provincial force Colón de Santa Fe.
So much so in fact that he felt the...
Saturday 26 February 2005 at Villa Park. This is a day that will always mean a great deal to me. It was the first time I had ever seen Everton win at Aston Villa. It is also still the best performance I have ever seen from an Everton side, we were an absolute joy to watch that day. But for...
