West Ham v Everton.
Upton Park.

Didn't know how the away ticket policy worked. Went into Sir Trevor Brooking stand Upper. Toffee fans in Lower. Could hear but not see. Had to pretend was an Irons fan for the day. Very traumatic as we won 1-2. Couldn't express my joy.

Everton v West Ham
Goodison Park

Got my revenge was in main stand with my scouse mate Kathy Simpson. Had a lovely day. Howard Webb was reffing though. Score was 1-1

Everton v Portsmouth
Goodison Park

This was my first trip with Everton Supporters London Area (Escla). Met the Bill Walker at Euston and read the Mirror while all the lads played poker. Got off,broke, ate 4 whole ham sarnies in stanley park and a bottle of cider from tesco. Worst seat choice ever lower bullens like sitting in the dark with a pillar box view. Pompy fans singing about didn't care about relegation. Got chatting to a nice man about how he not get there much. Got very bored as was not winning and had train to catch left early as bily scored the winner and I was sauntering along Gwladys Street. Had to see the long goal on match of the day.

Fulham v Everton
Craven Cottage

Again didn't understand away ticket policy, but lucky for me Fulham have a neutral area for away fans. Sat with Toffees at least. First proper away experience. All I remember was walking in circles in Hammersmith shopping centre, getting lost and walking down the wrong road, finally walking down Fulham palace road for two miles, eating a burger and buying a programme with Dixon Ethuhu on the front. Was searched at gate and told couldn't bring closed bottles in. Got some nice photos of Billy the badger and Tim Howard. Final score 1-1.

Chelsea V Everton.
Stamford Bridge

Lucky to get this experience. Got to go to Chelsea for only £25.50. Bargain. FA cup 4th round replay. Thought I'd be there for two hours + was there for four! Flipping extra time plus penalty shootout. Starving when I left. Great atmosphere and euphoria winning the shoot out. Shame got knocked out by championship side Reading in round 5. Better luck this year eh.

Arsensal v Everton.
The Emirates

The best thing about this game was the goonersaurus. I didn't like my view unable to see Theo Walcot run at 100mph at the other end need frigging telescope! We lost 1-0. They cussed us and sang we is dirty northern bastard even along Gillespie Road. The police made me do a half mile detour into the station and nearly got trampled by a horse!

Everton v Manchester United
Goodison Park

Well at least I was at home for this defeat, despite spending £120 and a day off work and applying to escla. I had crap sleep a whole week worrying about my hotel reservation being void. Thankfully Paul's lovely friends made my visit not wasted and I had a park end seat with a good view. Shame about the man on my left shouting your shit to the manures who were on my right Fergies fooking army.

Everton v Wolves
Goodison Park

Got a Upper Gwladys seet for this one. Crap side, won the game. No memories other than walking around the whole Stanley Park looking for bus 68 Walton Breck Road- Tuebrook. Taking wrong turn down Anfield Road nr Everton Valley doing a full mile and ending up back on Goodison Road where I went to Walton Road didn't get in the bus instead walking to St. Domingo road on foot. Got in bus and met Paul for curry and lager. Shattered! Won 2-1.

Everton v Tamworth
Goodison Park

Second trip with Escla. Good 20 months after the first! Got in the train. By now I have met Tony Cottee and won a bottle of Benedictine and the bigwigs at escla at least remember me. 2hrs & 10 minutes in Virgin train. Felt so queezy. Got a matchday programme with the late Gary Abblett RIP. And a new scarf. Was in paddock front row best seat I ever had Phil Neville, Changy and toffeegirl up close Won 2-0.

Tottenham v Everton
White Hart Lane

This game was postponed from 13/8/11 due to riotting. I had already gone there June 25th so I knew where to get off the bus. When I got there thought I was 195 was 165. Had to move. My work mate and her dad were also there a few rows down. So much seating arguements in my area and huge rows where's your foreskin shouted at Spurs and where's your giro shouted at Everton. Had a great experience. Again like Arsenal lost and had to be riduculed for being northern, despite being from north London. Score 2-0.

To be continued.
