I just wanted to give a mention to Martin Nicholls, a regular on here, and in the Saddle pre game with his posse of like minded Evertonians.

I found out only today, due in the main to my absence from the last couple of matches, that Martin suffered a stroke in November.

I spoke to his grandson Teddy, and his lovely daughter Jo, today and Martin's on the start of the road to recovery, which I'm sure we all want to wish him well on.

So, if you're a believer say a prayer, and if not just wish him the best on a speedy, and full recovery.
