Yes, Im really called Alan Ball. Yes, I was named after him! Yes, Iv heard all the jokes! But there are worse things in life than to be named after a footballing legend in general, let alone of the team you support. @ABall10 on Twitter - add me
vs Telford 1984 - FA Cup - Won 3-0. I left at half-time cos i was frozen n only 4 at the time... Missed all 3 goals... :( Hehe... I can laugh now!
Favourite Everton Moment
Taking my Gf to her 1st game at the Blackburn game that Iain Turner got sent off in after 9 mins. The atmosphere generated by the crowd from that moment on hooked her + left me in no doubt we would win even at that point!
Favourite All Time Player
Alan Ball. How can u pick just 1?? There r the usual legends, Dixie, Labone, Big Nev, the Latch, Big Dunc... the list is endless. More recently Kanchelskis + Beardsley were always capable of match winning performances, but being named after him iv gotta go for Bally...
Favourite Current Player
Tim Cahill. Again, tough decision... so many good players atm. Jags, Bainsey in def, Felli, Cahill, Ossie (sooo underrated!) in the middle. Cant wait to see the new boys play tho
David Moyes. Iv experienced some pretty average managers at Everton in my lifetime as well as a couple of greats! But, in my opinion, Kendall came back 2 many times so for what hes done in the way of changing things around again, Moysie's number 1!!
TBC - Please let it be my 1st Goodison Derby - 29/11/09.......... Well, awesome performance, if not the result... :( Walked out the ground in total disbelief that we hadnt got anything from the game! I wasnt the only 1 either! Atmosphere was electric. 1000 times better than my previous visit. Its just a shame those spawny gits from across the park had 2 spoil the day!
Tony Cottee's 2nd (Evertons 4th) in THAT FA Cup match... Ever noticed how the reds manager left shortly after...;) Genius! Altho a couple of games/goals vs Manure recently are pushing it close! Rodders clincher in Feb 2010 and the Cahill/Arteta double in injury time Sept 2010 spring to mind! Oh, team-play goals. Well, Ossie scored 1 in Europe a couple of seasons ago set up by Cahill, Baines and a Pienaar back-heel, before being lashed in from outside the area. Similarly Arteta sidefooted 1 in after a fab move vs hull shortly after his comeback after another Pienaar backheel...
The 2000 Puma kit was nice... The 1st Kejian effort wasnt bad either. It doesnt really matter 2 me tho as long as its got that BADGE on it!! The Luminous yellow effort was quality. Comfy as well!! The navy blue(black) and pink pinstripe grew on me as the season went on. Couldnt bring myself to buy it though :S
I cant get to many games so I dont really know many... If any1 wants to teach me...??
