    Quotes for Holy Week - 5 - With the relieved, the released, those anticipating renewal
     
    Thieeery Henri; Thieeery Henri;
    Thieeery Henri; Thieeery Henri


    - Forty thousand Evertonians tonight as Everton beat Spurs 3-1 virtually assuring our Premiership security for 2004 and giving us one of the better performances of a frustrating season, to satisfy our hunger for progress.

    Singing that (a) to taunt the Spurs fans - for they have nothing approaching the wonderful talent of their North London rivals; (b) because earlier today said Henri put three past Liverpool, a pleasure at any time, and particularly his second which was contender for one of the best goals scored anywhere, ever.

    But also (c) perhaps, because that name, those words have become a byline for joyful celebration; synonymous with skill and sass and style and soccer delight. I've spent most of the day dwelling on death - leading others to dwell on death; but alongside the piety Good Friday has also been a footy day for me too. Good to find life at the end of it tonight.
