Our pre-match routine has been disrupted this season since the closure of the Lion Tavern in Moorefields/Tithebarn Street. The good news is that, after protracted delays, it is to re-open in the next 10 days or so. Those interested should keep an eye out for a notice in the window.

Regulars will know the new licensee, Dave Hardman. Despite being a dyed-in-the-wool supporter of the dark side, Dave is keen to keep a balance in the pub and he is looking for a suggestion for an iconic photograph for Everton. This will sit alongside a photo of the kids with their 96 shirts on with a Liverpool image on the other side. The only stipulation is that neither should be of a derby game moment.

That's a pity because the first one to come to my mind was the pile on with Tim Cahill on the top, like the sands of Iwo Jima on Mt Suribachi, after Lee Carsley's winner.

Any suggestions?

I'll forward them to Dave and let you know what was decided.

Incidentally, Sean and Michael, the former licensees, have opened a pub long-closed in Market Street, Birkenhead. They have re-named it The Lion and are running it as a free-house.
