    The Bird is Blue

    Well, why shouldn't it be? This is I think, my first footy post of the season and it is time to declare that my eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Andrew Johnson, not to mention the coming of age of Joleon Lescott and the coming together, at last, of a pacy, creative and goalscoring midfield. I have witnessed the maturing of Yobo, Osman and McFadden, have been reassured by the performances of Tim Howard, and thrilled that at last Everton Football Club has a genuinely youthful, attacking lineup.

    For the first time in many years this is a team which looks comfortable in the top quarter of the league table. Flawed, no doubt, but (I fondly repeat) comfortable in the top quarter of the league table. Thinking on these things, and reading When Skies Are Grey today prompts me to embark on another campaign. To reclaim the Liver Bird. From now on, it is Blue. There are many reasons why this should be so, if you know your history, and the time is right to celebrate, and correct past errors.
