Great watch and nice to put a face to a contributor.
Cosmic grooves and Good Vibrations!

But it was a really nice day and the French guys were really lovely and picked up the special atmosphere of "going to the match". Great fun.
My wife mentioned on Facebook about my fashion sense – I look like a cross between Del Boy and John Motson... who cares!!!!
Cosmic grooves all the way.

As regards your sartorial taste, it looked fine to me, as a man of a certain age and experience . I don't look that dissimilar myself to be honest.
More like a cross between John Lennon and Doctor John.
As the good Doctor says, Have a blessed day.

I get on the ferry, can't wait to get the Pier Head, for my sugar ring donut, and then smile, because I can feel how much you love it! Tres bien, mate!

Do you still get to away matches?

I just spoke with FSF,the guy is Fabian – he is delighted with the reactions and I will send him TW Links tomorrow morning when I am less busy .As for winnings, my gag is that when I win (only putting a £1 on) the round in the pub comes to about £400! Thank you all for such lovely comments, I did a piece about 11 years ago called Its Great To Be An Evertonian, based in TDH and put it on at The BLUEcoat –you can see more info on my work at Link– but around the world I always get Everton into any media interviews.
I am always happy to meet friends, please call me via contact details on the website. Ken, "thank you" for lovely comments, and Tony, call in for a "cuppa" anytime.
Cosmic grooves all the way.

The French camera crew's return visit and a dressed to the nines George walking through the Dark House doorway looking a dead ringer for Deadwood's Wild Bill Hickok:

Enjoyable stuff, George, start placing more bets like that.

George, where did you get that Tom Davies wig from and how old is it?

George that was just a fantastic watch, fair play to you and the film crew.
20 Posted 07/02/2017 at 22:15:00
A quick 'thank you' for your lovely comments. I will answer more in the morning. Good night, Blues, and cosmic dreams.

Sartorial elegance mixed with Jean Paul Sartre eloquence.
Vive la George!

I began going the match in 1948 so began in the real bad days when Catterick was our woeful striker or a rotund guy called Jock Dodds.
Anyway since we returned to the top division I have lived through without another relegation :)

My first game was February 1954 when my dad took me as a 6th birthday present when we were in Division 2, not that I knew or cared. I was 69 yesterday so by my reckoning the Bournemouth game was my 63rd anniversary and a great day out.
A happy anniversary !

Well in with the bet, George.

Not content with armchair or "plastic" support, I started going to games despite now living on the south coast. I joined ESCLA (London blues) and became a season ticket holder £90 to stand behind the St end goal.
I watched Every Saturday game, home and away for 5 years. Met my, now ex, wife on the train. Many years later, I took my daughter Emma Frances Catherine to Goodison. Although not a football fan, she always checks the result of the team that shares it's initials with her.
Although unable to get to games now, I still feel the joy and the hurt. I still start to get butterflies about Monday on derby week. OMG, I LOVE EVERTON

What a great video, well done George.

Nice to put a face to the name, & an excellent piece to watch, George. You did all Evertonians proud!
35 Posted 22/02/2017 at 08:51:30
When George says "I'll get the crisps," this is interpreted as "Tu me dois un bisous". This actually means "You owe me a kiss"!
It should have been something like "A moi les chips" (Yes, in French "chips" = "crisps" but let's not go down that road.)
Salut SPA. A la prochaine.
