Back in January, in preparation for my maiden voyage to Goodison Park next week, I recounted my journey in becoming a true Blue. A good many of you responded with kind words, stories of your own, recommendations for my time on Merseyside, and offers to meet up and show me a good time upon my arrival. This here is my final call to rally the troops for the weekend of the Burnley match and solicit any final words of advice for my trip.

If all goes as planned with flights and trains, I’ll be in town staying by Albert Dock on Friday night. For Saturday, it would be great to see as many ToffeeWebbers as possible pre- and post-match. Please let me know if there’s a contingent of you all going to The Harlech or elsewhere before the match, and if so, what time I should show up. And then afterwards, Neil Copeland has discussed heading to the Bramley Moore for some drinks. 

The rest of my time before departing is mostly free. Neil and Stephen Vincent and I have discussed heading to Chester on Sunday, for those who are interested. I’ve received a load of great recommendations already, but if you haven’t weighed in already, I’m eager to hear more. But more than anything, I look forward to meeting you all and cheering us to victory at Goodison; the Lower Gwladys, GT5, Row M, Seat 124, to be specific and for those who want to say hi. See you all in England.
