Subject: A bit of good news

I've been a bit mithered the last couple of weeks and haven't wanted to put anything on here until there was something good to say but our friendly Evertonian Col has had a run in with the virus.

The good news is he has come out of ICU onto a normal ward and seems to be past the worst of it, so he will be coming down to a game whenever we get back up and running.

I know many of you know him and most of you will have at least heard him so I thought I'd post a positive story for us.

Great news that he is recovering Pricey.
Wish him all the best.
He should be fully recovered by the time we start playing again.

Really pleased to hear that he's recovering Pricey. Pass on my regards. I dont have Col's mobile number but ask him to PM me when he is able to so can have a catch up with him

Course I will. I've sent him best regards from his tfc mates but I'll get him to bell you when he gets on the mend.

Col continues to mend and is doing some physio because he lost strength in his legs. Once he is walking, he can go home. Been a bit of a battle by the sounds of it but you'll hear those Scouse tones bemoaning score updates of Liverpool winning back at the Lamb next season (whenever we get there)

Apologies to anyone he has been slow replying to as well

Hi Pricey. have sent Col a text message. Next time you contact him just check with him that he has received it as i know what i'm like with mobile numbers!!

Ha ok. First I've heard off him today in about a week and he sent his apologies. I think it's knocked him about so he's been sleeping plenty and been out of the loop but he seems like he's making his progress.

We'll know he's fully recovered when he's on here expressing his support for null and voiding the PL season and not crowning any champions...in the best interests of public safety like ;-)

Not a problem pal. Just wanna make sure i sent message to him and not a complete stranger! Think i have the correct number you gave me. He's got more important things on his mind to be fair at the minute than replying to text message off the likes of me!! Glad he appears on the mend. Miss all his tales of Liverpool's success when he visits the Lamb!!!

That’s good news Pricey.
I hope he continues to improve and readies himself for cheering the Liverpool team bus going through the City as and when they are crowned champions!!!

Greetings Earth creatures.  I have just returned from the planet Covid 19 slightly bruised and battered but still alive and kicking.
It is good to be back :)
Red Blooded, of course I will be cheering the other lot when and if they win the Prem :(
I take my lead from you.  I have always admired the way you take every opportunity to praise Villa for their wonderful European Cup triumph in 1982.
I admire your fairness and sportsmanship and will try my best to follow your example :)

welcome back to the land of the living Col.
At least both our chosen teams wear blue.
Hope to see you fit and well at The Lamb next season.

Thanks Geoff, been a rough couple of months but I am getting there :)
I always feel a bit strange cheering for Tamworth  when they play in red.  Must be mellowing in
my old age.
Hope to see you soon at The Lamb, but I have my doubts it will be before the middle of next year, hope I am wrong.

Glad you're on the mend and I do think it'll be earlier than you think but whenever it is, your first cider in the Peel will be on me mate (I'm not saying I'll pay for the next six but definitely the first one!)

Oh, and how Everton would it be to win the first derby in ages when no one is allowed to go?

Thanks Ian, looking forward to that pint, hopefully this year :)
As you say it would be typical Everton if we won our first derby for too many years, when there was no-one there to see it, but I would take it :)

0-0 brilliant result for Everton. Congratulations in order for beating the death virus and for Tamworth FC ladies promotion. Is it just me or is the Premiership boring without the fans interaction!

You're dead right. Can't watch it. It'll be pointless sh*te till the fans are back.

Thanks Eton and congrats to Tamworth Ladies for their promotion.
Completely agree, football without the crowd is just a money making exercise, just proves how much they care about the fans.  Not a lot.
That was the first derby I have not watched either in person or on TV  for over 40 years.  I was made up with the result but having watched a crowdless Bundesliga game while I was in hospital, I have no intention of watching another  mind numbingly pointless game.

Really glad mate you’ve recovered. However football and banter never goes away! Enjoy the next 45 minutes!
