John suggested putting out a thread to gauge opinion!
I’m also not suggesting I organise it as I live 200 miles from Liverpool and have no connection to players etc. However, it’s definitely an event I’d like to attend and would love to put a face to ToffeeWeb contributors!
What are everyone’s thoughts?

We need more "off page" connections – similar to the regional fan clubs.
I am off this afternoon flying at 4pm to Faro for the weekend matches and it would be good to meet up with any ToffeeWebbers out there. Is there an EFC pub in Faro? Even for this weekend?

Personally I prefer Vilamoura and “Figos” Bar is where I watch a lot of the games. ONeils is my favourite bar though.

Yes staying in Faro - have found one sports bar on the internet - but would be good to meet up with fellow blues . travelling on my own having decided at the weekend to make the trip - dying to actually see Silva's methods close up Though the two games in two days in the sun would be ideal.

Following my spell in hospital, I had the same feeling, and I wished to personally thank those who wished me well; seven people joined me as strangers, and within minutes we were talking to each other like old friends.
As I've stated on the '80th Birthday get-together' thread, it really is a simple process; all it requires is a willingness to participate, and the selection of a date, time, and venue.
If you wish to explore the possibility of such a venture, you can put me down as your number one applicant, and remember that "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow".

I have some contacts to sort out speakers: Sharpie, Ratters etc...

I would imagine that it would only need a small number of people to meet on a regular basis, possibly monthly to spark an interest, and the best form of advertising is word of mouth, 'nothing ventured nothing gained'

I'm definitely with Dave#9 about speakers. As a club Everton seem to have been very successful in dulling the senses of many supporters by using former players who will offer only anodyne opinions and who toe the party line. As nice as they are as blokes, I don't see the point of listening to the platitudes of Ian Snodin, Jim Pearson, Graeme Sharpe et al. On the other hand I would listen to Nev or Derek Mountfield or Kevin Sheedy, and maybe we should be asking why lads who played a lot of games for winning Everton teams seem to be personae non grata because they actually speak their own uncompromising minds.

What they say, lots of times, in public is the total opposite of what they say privately.
