Long may our Club continue to take such risks, be prepared to look stupid if they don't come off, diversify from the business of kicking footballs, and bring about results like this.

Whatever the success-failure rate, Everton have succeeded imo simply by offering the help.
Remember what it says in the good book - 'I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.' - Luke 15:7
And look what is says in the really boss book..
"There arent many things that I love but I love Everton and that made the difference. Thats why I get emotional when I talk about it.”
That'll do me.

What the club is doing is commendable as it has identified its importance within the community. I think many clubs do not take the important role they have seriously and with the money and foreign ownership coming into the game, they have only a global view. Like the church before them, Everton recognizes their role as a key stakeholder in the success and wellbeing of the area.

I hope the article is read by some of those who criticized the club's recent outreach to another troubled young man with a love for football and a drug problem.
Whether it's Lee Johnson or Jose Baxter or however many more whose names we will never hear, Everton is doing good work... and only enhancing the sense of pride we all feel in being Blues.

The article though shows the compassion of the city's premier club, and the impact it's having on people's lives. Long may we continue to have this immense pride in Everton FC.

If I could work out a way to do it I think we could power the floodlights on the energy that the the dynamic trio put into their work. Lee has not only made a difference to his own life but he now makes a difference to the lives of others through his work. His is a fantastic story.
ps: He is also a much better bingo caller than big Dunc.

Still, the more I read about rhino at the club these days the more I think he embodies the spirit of Everton and stays at the club for a long long time.
Hope the first team players read this and decide to help out with the target with some spare change!

Britain can be a bloody cold place, especially in the deep midwinter. EiTC and those good people who work with the homeless and the drug-addled bring a bit of warmth and compassion to a pretty cold and heartless world. COYB
