Greetings Fellow Evertonians,

I am a 44-year-old lifelong Evertonian living in Omaha, Nebraska, (born and raised in Singapore) who hopes to fulfill a childhood dream of watching Everton play live at Goodison Park this November!

I plan on meeting my friend in London on Friday, November 2, and then taking a train to Liverpool for the Everton game versus Brighton on Saturday, November 3.

I would even consider going for the Chelsea vs Everton game on November 10, but my friend leaves on November 8, and since I have never been for a game before, let alone an away game, am hesitant to go by myself.

I hope to book my plane ticket in the next few days. I tried emailing Everton USA but their email account was not working.

I would appreciate any advice, suggestions or recommendations you are able to give.

Thank you very much.

Fr Damien Wee COYB!

ps: Thank you for all you do! Love this website and visit it daily!

Hi Damien

Are you a priest? Not that's it's relevant to your requests for advice, I am just wondering if TW has an even... err broader church than I imagined.

We have everything in here: Poets, Philosophers, Lawyers, Journalists, scallies, teachers, shrinks, bizzies, Engineers, Musicians. You name it and they are in here.

No idea why, but I would love to think we had members of the clergy logging on here every day too.

My advice would be, meet your friend and then take the train up here on the Friday. Get the hell out of London and spend the night in a decent city.

Your money will go much further in Liverpool too. Everything is cheaper. Accommodation, food, drink, you name it. I’m sure you can arrange to meet a load of blues of who will show you the city.

You might be interested in visiting St Luke's Church. They serve tea and snacks in the Community Centre before the match and the Church has a long and friendly association with EFC. You should definitely visit the Everton Store, which is close to the Stadium.

Damien when you come to the Brighton game go to St. Luke's Cof E church on Goodison Road close to Everton's ground, get there around 1-30pm, you will meet loads of Evertonians who will give you plenty of good advice, especially about travelling to the Chelsea game the following week. Best of luck Damien and I hope you bring us some.
