Tough, you're just not invited!

by   |   09/05/2024  85 Comments  [Jump to last]

With a year to go before Everton play a competitive match at the new Everton Stadium, I was feeling a bit bitter and petty… thinking who should not be "invited" to this opener.

So here is my list of non-invitees:

  • Richard Masters, or anyone representing the reprehensible Premier League.
  • Club traitors such as Barmby, Lescott, Gosling, McMahon, Bilic, Xavier, Radzinski, Rooney (the MUFC badge kisser!)
  • Various board members, including Barrett-Baxendale, Moshiri!
  • Any past or present Tory MP for their callous disrespect for our City.
  • Any Royalty, to avoid any playing of the joke National Anthem.
  • Benitez, Allardyce, Walker, Koeman.
  • No ex-RS players even if involved with Sky and BBC Sports etc.

I completely agree.

Why? What did he do?
Brendan McLaughlin

David Moyes but that could be a tad awkward if he's back as manager.
Peter Carpenter

No Rooney? You tell him.

Jim Beglin. Jim Beglin's Mrs. Jim Beglin's dog.

And anybody who know's Jim Beglin.

I was at that match, Dave @5. I can't remember why, but I was in the Main Stand right in line when the tackle went in on Beglin, whereas I usually stood behind the goal in the lower Gwladys.

It looked an awful injury although I don't think there was anything too malicious in the tackle from Steven. Poor touch and he followed through.

I don't think he's ever forgiven us. Me and my mates (both sides) certainly had healthy debate on the train back from Kirkdale.

Trevor, No Rooney?

Without his transfer fee there was a small possibility there might not have been any Everton.

Danny O’Neill
9 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:14:54
Trevor, one exception. Despite the city's anti-Tory sentiment, Micheal Heseltine was instrumental in starting the regeneration of Liverpool in the 80s. Often at odds with Margaret Thatcher and still shows an interest in the city.

I'd take Rooney off that list. The club sold him and he's come out and said his piece and the position he was put in. Don't forget, he was a young lad and took a lot of abuse.

Sadly, and I don't take this easily, but Graham Sharp for not speaking out.

Trevor Powell
10 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:15:18
I'll concede on Rooney, OK?
Duncan McDine
11 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:23:32
I don't think you have been petty enough, Trevor. The ghost of our late chairman apparently gets your blessing.

Surely a game-day exorcism wouldn't hurt?

Kieran Kinsella
13 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:52:11
Karl Tyler shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it either. I remember him and Craig Short both mouthing off about smaller clubs being "bigger" clubs when they jumped ship.

Arteta can do one too after his 11th-hour transfer request. AVDM too. Brazilian Jo and Drenthe have both admitted they screwed up while at Everton and regret it… but too late boys, you're unwelcome.

Gueye the original is another one. He was embroiled in a scandal in Romania a few years back.

That numpty who got himself sent off in the derby then did his badge kissing routine. Holgate isn't welcome even if he is still at the club. No Kenwright acolytes either.

Rob Halligan
14 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:54:25
No RS fans either. Ban them forever.
Paul Ferry
15 Posted 09/05/2024 at 19:59:54
Rob, we have to have them at the derby so we can see their pock-holed ugly faces when we beat the shite. We could also charge a small fortune to let the ship from Norway dock at our dock.
Rob Halligan
16 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:04:48
Nah, Paul. The ugly Neanderthal knuckle dragging fuckers aren’t allowed!
Paul Ferry
17 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:10:29
Arguably extreme Rob, but it sounds like a good plan.

And our junior blues and Danny will not have any more Neanderthal nightmares.

Danny O’Neill
18 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:11:32
I would expect nothing less, Rob!! Get in!
Mark Murphy

“No Kenwright acolytes either.”

What?? No Danny O??

Eh Brian?? 😘

Rob Halligan
20 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:13:08
Danny, is that “Get in” for Olympiakos scoring against Villa?
Rob Halligan
21 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:14:33
Nothing extreme about it at all, Paul. Ban the fuckers, every single one of them!
Danny O’Neill
22 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:19:08
Every single one of them, Rob. Don't let them near Goodison next season. I wouldn't give them an allocation.
Dave Lynch
23 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:23:47
Heseltine never gave up on this city, unlike others.
There are loads I wouldn't let near the stadium, I'll start with Bono because he's a knobhead.🤣
Brendan McLaughlin
24 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:39:30
Seriously, Kieran #13

"No Kenwright acolytes either"

And have the "William Kenwight" stand empty for the opening match at the new stadium?

David Currie
25 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:48:41
Rob has it right, lifetime ban!

They should have got banned from Europe for 39 years!!

Paul Ferry
26 Posted 09/05/2024 at 20:49:16
I fucking hate "Get me on a plane quick – there's a national/natural disaster I haven't been to yet" Bono, Dave (L).

I always fucking hated the poor man's Bunnymen – U2, who don't have anywhere near the pure musical instinct that is the second LP, Heaven Up Here.

Bono, the nutty Irish fella who did the Band-Aid thing, Sting "Come on, fellas, find me a place to go where I will look good and concerned" etc.

Dave Lynch
27 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:00:57
Forgot about Sting, Paul @ 26, he can fuck off as well.

Clattenberg would be another top of my list.

If I had to have a band open the stadium, it would be Television playing Marquee Moon, won't happen though as Tom Verlaine passed unfortunately.

Tony Abrahams
28 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:17:29
I have never listened to The Bunnymen, Paul, but I'm gonna have to now after reading that assessment, mate!

I'd love to see U2 playing at the new stadium, and could imagine them singing Beautiful Day, as the sun was beginning to go down over the River Mersey, although I think Coldplay, are a fantastic live band, so I'd definitely love to see them gracing our fantastic new home, in the summertime!

Paul Ferry
29 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:30:48
Tony, you're the younger side of the right age mate. How could you not? First and second albums: Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here. Two singles off the third album: The Cutter and one of the great pop songs of all time, Back of Love. The divine Bring on the Dancing Horses, jeez I'd better stop.

It seemed to be a thing in the city back then, Tony. You had to choose: Bunnymen or U2. The implication of course was picking U2 was disloyal – and they didn't do a decent album until, what was it called, Zoo Europa, and that was like early 90s. (I am prepared to get battered on that one!)

Paul Ferry
30 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:31:42
Oh, and free the Radzinski 1; what the hell did he do?
David Currie

Ray Roche
32 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:43:45
Paul he buggered off to ‘bigger club’ Fulham and bad mouthed us after he left, as I recall.
Mark Murphy
33 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:44:03
Paul, I was confused too so I looked it up.

Apparantly he was disgruntled as Everton offered him “only” a 2-year deal (as he was over 30) and he advised Wayne to leave.

Paul Ferry
34 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:48:30
Cheers fellas, the traitorous turncoat maple leaf should be strung from the gallows on the edge of the river.
Tony Abrahams
35 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:50:40
Thanks for the tip, Paul, but I'm gonna wait for Chris Williams, to give his musical seal of approval, if that's alright!

I remember going to see Celtic on the opening day of their very successful century season and everyone seemed to wearing a U2 Badge but, for some reason, I have never got around to seeing them playing live.

I'm listening to The Killing Moon right now and the vocalist has got a great voice!

Clive Rogers
36 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:53:38
Radzinski turned down a new improved contract, defended a transfer, criticised manager Moyes and the club, and publicly urged Rooney to leave.

He has since said he has regretted his comments at the time.

Paul Tran
37 Posted 09/05/2024 at 21:56:49
Not sure about that Paul F, I remember seeing both U2 and The Bunnymen at the Royal Court in the same week of 1982 or 83 and it was pretty much the same crowd.

Ocean Rain was a wonderful album.

Colin Metcalfe
38 Posted 09/05/2024 at 22:07:39
Michael Heseltine got the ball rolling when the city was a shit hole, he is one politician I admire.
Andy Crooks
39 Posted 09/05/2024 at 22:15:19
Paul F, I loathed U2.

Then Lou Reed supported them in Belfast. I went to see Reed with the intention of leaving after him. He was shite, they were brilliant!

Paul Ferry
40 Posted 09/05/2024 at 22:27:00
How could I have forgotten Killing Moon! Ocean Rain, the 4th album from which KM is on, is genius Tony. Ian McCulloch, sadly red shite, does have a wonderful voice. He lives in Aigburth. Let me know what Chris W thinks Tony!

Some line up that was Andy. Bunnymen have done a few Reed covers and I was always sorry I never saw him live. Shame that he let you down.

Not how I recall it PT and I think that we were at the same gig but I would not have gone to U2 if you paid me. Most of the people I knew were dye in the wool Bunnymen with no time for Bono who unlike the Bunnymen dressed like shite, wore cowboy boots, and was not early 80s Face cool and couldn't wait to get into stadiums!

By the way, did you count and poll both audiences PT!

Si Cooper
41 Posted 09/05/2024 at 22:39:02
Echo and the Bunnymen means to me (via my older brother) ‘Porcupine’ and ‘Ocean Rain’. Great music from a time when Liverpool bands were really prominent. Very fond of their cover of The Doors ‘People are Strange’.

Don’t mind listening to U2, even if Bono is up himself, but Coldplay have never really twanged my musical funny bone.

Who can we ban from BMD? Anyone who ever changed their club allegiance to a ‘more successful’ club after the age of 7 (and I’m being very generous there).

Derek Thomas
42 Posted 10/05/2024 at 07:03:09

I think we should have Brent fit torpedoes to his pedalo and let the Norwegians sail into the Mersey and be sunk by Brent’s pedalo. We could make a fortune selling tickets for it as the pre match event.
Chris Williams
45 Posted 10/05/2024 at 07:53:12
Tony and Paul,

I’m afraid Echo and the Bunnymen passed me by, in the main. Possibly generational, possibly other preoccupations. But they certainly have their followers here, so best I take a proper listen.

U2 less so, mainly some earlier stuff like “Joshua Tree” and “Achtung Baby”. Great favourites of an old(late) friend. Before they took the Eagles route up their own fundament. I always think of Gram Parsons with Joshua Tree.

Both of those albums were produced by Brian ENO and a French Canadian called Daniel Lanois, and he makes quite a different sound. I think his studio was in a big old brothel in Storeyville, in New Orleans, and it’s echoey and gives a deep bass tone. Some lovely guitar too.

Try out some of his own solo albums, folksy, but then take a listen to some of the stuff he did with Bob Dylan, not in his most productive period. “Oh Mercy” not everyone’s favourite, but I like it personally, especially “Man in the long black coat”. They did “Time out of Mind” together too. Dylan singled him out in his book “Chronicles “, and I think they had a combative time from memory.

Then listen to the stuff he did with Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke. A few others too. He gets a distinctive sound.

Worth a listen Tony, he really is.

I’d invite him and also REM.

Dave # 5 - hear, hear!
Plus Mikel Arteta.
Tony Abrahams
47 Posted 10/05/2024 at 08:23:38
Si, I got the shock of my life when I went to see Coldplay live. I found them okay, but nothing more, until I watched them live at The Etihad, and then my opinion of them really changed.

Some groups are made for live music, so if you ever get the chance to watch Coldplay live, don't turn the offer down mate. Trust me!

Thanks Chris, it's always an education when music comes into the conversation and you give your opinions, mate.

Eric Myles
48 Posted 10/05/2024 at 09:10:40
Kieran #13,

"Arteta can do one too after his 11th-hour transfer request."

Not how I remember it mate. At the time we were £23 million overdrawn at the bank and they were asking for some repayment.

Arsenal were showing an interest in Arteta and he could have put in a transfer request at any time before the 11th hour if he wanted out.

We got £10 million for him and, in response to the constant "Where's the Arteta money Bill?" question, Moyes’s answer was 'everyone knows the Arteta money went to the banks'.

To me, he was just another of Chairman Bill's sacrificial lambs – like Rooney.

49 Posted 10/05/2024 at 09:17:31
The only people I’d ban from BMD would be Masters, any former board members, Carra and Gerrard. The rest can come and be awestruck and drown in their envy.
Chris Williams
50 Posted 10/05/2024 at 09:24:08
That’s ok Tony,

Just been updating myself on Daniel Lanois. Did stuff with Neil Young, Peter Gabriel, Sinead O’Connor and Willie Nelson too. So gets around a bit still.

On invites to BMD, I’d be asking any surviving players from the 60s. There can’t be many left now, after Jimmy Husband a week or so ago.

Tony Kay, Johnny Morrisey, Alan Whittle, Joe Royle, Colin Harvey, Jimmy Gabriel, Derek Temple?

Anybody else?

Trevor Powell
51 Posted 10/05/2024 at 11:20:53
Have re-thought about an invitaion to Rooney, perhaps, there should be a one-off Boys Pen section for those who have thrown their dummies out of the pram over the years including Bernie Wright!

Neville Southall was praising Brett Angell at his book promotion in Chepstow as not very talented, but what a trier! He deserves to have a good seat in the stadium. What about the Wimbledon goalie from the 1994 great escape!

Danny O’Neill
52 Posted 10/05/2024 at 12:21:44
In terms of bands playing, the two best concerts I went to were Snow Patrol and Coldplay. I went to see Oasis at Wembley in what turned out to be their final concert, not known at the time. It was good, but a bit too refined and perfect for a live concert if that makes any sense.

Snow Patrol has to be my favourite. Chasing Cars was an anthem for us in Afghanistan and I'd only been back a few days, so that was quite emotional.

In terms of players. Chris @50 Derek Temple is a great shout. And get his son alongside him. A massive Evertonian who I served with.

Pete Clarke
53 Posted 10/05/2024 at 12:51:28
Let’s just ban Moshiri and 777 partners for ever and then sing all of the songs from the album ‘songs to sing and learn’ by the Bunnymen.
Stephen Vincent
54 Posted 10/05/2024 at 14:11:24
Surely has to be Green Day.

I still think Boulevard of Broken Dreams should be our walkout tune, if we ever decided to replace Z-Cars.

Tony Abrahams
55 Posted 10/05/2024 at 14:28:51
It seems like Daniel Lanois, has been mixing with some of my all time favourites, after reading that list Chris, so I'm going to have to listen to some of those songs later on today.

I listen to Sinaed O'Connor quite often because the girl had the voice of an angel, and she was also never afraid to highlight some of the terrible atrocities committed by the Catholic Church.

The Americans were absolutely outraged, and I often wonder how many of them apologized to this very honest Irish Girl, who never shied away from the truth, when that truth came out in the wash?

Peter Gabriel's “Secret World” live, and the video to “Shaking the Tree” is an absolute must on YouTube.

Mark Murphy
56 Posted 10/05/2024 at 14:38:02
Yeah but who’s your fave Everton player Danny???
Chris Williams
57 Posted 10/05/2024 at 14:43:23
Thanks Tony,

He has a definite sound, Tony, and his stuff is seriously moody and atmospheric. He has a very good guitarist whose name escapes me. As I said a lot of the sound comes from the acoustics in the room. A knocking shop formerly.

The Dylan stuff is good, at least for me, but in some ways the Robbie Robertson album, self-titled is some of the best solo stuff he did. “Fallen Angel” written after Richard Manuel committed suicide is a great number and moving. “Somewhere Down That Crazy River” is a standout, although Christ knows what's it about. Proper atmospheric. I think Peter Gabriel played on it.

I think the guitarist was called Malcolm Burn, but could be wrong.

You're right about Sinéad, she was too honest and probably cared a bit too much. Try the stuff she did live with Christy Moore, she's obviously comfortable with him. “Sweet Thames Flow Softly” an Old Ewan McColl song is lovely.

I'd better mention Everton or I'll piss off Michael.


Jay Harris
58 Posted 10/05/2024 at 14:47:50
Seems like the ban list for BMD has turned into a Musicfest.

Like Danny I love Coldplay and Snow Patrol.

I would also add Imagine Dragons and Five Finger Death Punch to the list of recommended listening.

Some food for thought on concerts that could be held at BMD.

Steve Brown

Carragher, Souness, Sturridge, Redknapp, Beglin, Owen, Murphy, Warnock, McManaman, Crouch, Andy Hinchliffe (cos he hates Everton), Gary Birtles (worst commentator ever) and Benitez.

Anyone who works for Sky Sports, Matt Hughes, Smon Goodley, Putin, Trump, Xi, Barrymore, Piers Morgan, James Corden, Gary Barlow, Russell Brand, Michael McIntyre, the Tory Party, Nick Clegg, Shane Ritchie, everyone on morning TV, Loose Wowen, One Show and Britain;s Got Talent.

Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Victoria Beckham, Prince Andrew, Taylor Swift.

Anyone from EPL, UEFA, FIFA.

What a brilliant arena right on the sea front to attend a concert, I'd love it if we could get Radiohead or Queens of the Stone age, Foo Fighters to do a concert at BMD.

I'd also like to see some NFL games and the Rugby League grand final staged at BMD in the future, show off our wonderful new stadium to the world.

Tony #55, I came back to Liverpool on a trip from a job in Saudi one time and one of my vivid memories was of Sinead O'Connor performing "Mandika" on TOTP.

I was blown away.

And her version of "Nothing Compares to You" is way better than the original Prince version.

I know this might not be popular or comfortable, but included could be one of Shankly's relatives. A quote from reliable media outlet:

Shankly also revealed his shock that he had found solace at once-hated rivals Everton. "I have been received more warmly by Everton than I have been by Liverpool," he wrote. Indeed, on being exiled from Melwood, he began turning up at Everton's training ground, Bellefield, where he trained and sometimes helped Everton's club captain, Mick Lyons, coach the junior teams.

Also Howard Kendall's son, Simon, who I believe is now located in the US.

I think it should be more about who should be there rather than who shouldn't.

Colin Harvey leading the way. A hall of fame. Sadly, a lot of the 60s players are no longer with us.

But have Neville, Trevor, Peter Reid and of course Sheedy walk out on the pitch and give them the recognition.

Tony, I was bought up listening to my parents' music on Sunday mornings. I have a soft spot for the Everly Brothers. Harmony and great voices.

Just don't do fireworks and those annoying flame thrower thing that the likes of Wolves do!!

72 Posted 10/05/2024 at 21:01:56
Danny, before the new Everton Stadium opens, Goodison Park has got to close.

After seeing that WhatsApp explaining that, starting from tomorrow, every single team is going to be playing their last Premier League game at Goodison next season, with that caption “Don't wish it away” then the obvious choice for a concert to close Goodison has got to be Sir Elton John.

Just Imagine the encore, at the end!💙

Paul Birmingham
73 Posted 10/05/2024 at 21:47:37
On a seperate point, Standard Leige's home game tonight was postponed due to their fans protesting against 777.

Surely this weekend is the end of their lingering over taking over Everton.

Hopefully deliverance very soon for Everton in terms of new ownership.

Neil Copeland
74 Posted 10/05/2024 at 21:56:14
Tony, I am dreading us leaving Goodison as much as I am looking forward to the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and a new era.

The Old Lady holds so many memories, Elton would indeed be a fantastic tribute to her charms.

Tony A and Danny O, don't hate me, but I've never ever liked Elton John's miserable dirge "I guess that's why ... "

It came out in 1983 and matters more to me as a whining and whinging lament for Watford's hammering in the '84 Final.

These lyrics are just Everton, right?

Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughin' like children, livin' like lovers
Rollin' like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

It was a tragedy to me over time that we did not turn to a mighty song from the year before penned and sung by people of our parish (though the lead gob is one of them). I am, of course, referring to the truly anthemic "Story of the Blues" by Pete Wylie & The Mighty WAH! – whose main inspiration for the song was "Blackstuff".

Here in my pocket I got the Story of the Blues
Try to believe me 'Cos it could be front page news.

... First, they take your pride
Turn it all inside
And then you realise
You've got nothing left to lose
So, you try to stop
Try to get back up
And then, you realise
You're telling the Story of the Blues

Indelibly tied in with our city with lyrics that resonate deeply for the city and us.

But, guess what, it's been adopted by Chester FC and is played before the teams come out.

That chorus and straight into the Z-Cars drums.

"Rollin like thunder under the covers"!!!!!!!

Dear God/Sheeds ...

Paul, none of us will hate a fellow blue and you are up there with very best of them.

Songs and anthems are down to opinion. I don't particularly like "If you know your history" from a personal perspective. I wish we would get rid of it.

Let's get tomorrow won. We'll be singing Spirit and Forever. And Marching.

We shall not be moved.

A new favourite of mine;

The ball

And never touched the ball

Sounded great at Luton although I think their support didn't have a clue what we were on about.

Paul. Wah! is a good shout. Story Of The Blues is a great tune.

Paul, if you are looking for another band that was respectably in that Bunnymen space check out Kommunity FK. ‘Trollops’ is one of their poppier tunes but they got heavy as well.

Time to wake up the masses.. "Ready to go" by Republica..
The album is even better..
"It's a crack, I'm back, yeah
I'm standing on the rooftops, shouting out
Baby, I'm ready to go
I'm back and ready to go
From the rooftops, shout it out"

Long live the revolution...

Tony #70, agreed. Except I always skip her version of "Don't Cry for me Argentina" when it comes up. Just can't stand the song.

Janis and Sinead my two favourite female singers.

How about a farewell song along the lines of

"The Leaving of Goodison"

And NO, NO, NO and four times NO to Elton fcucking John.

Hi Paul,

It just doesn't sit with me and sounds tacky in my opinion. Just a personal view, I know a lot of the supporters like it. I just don't. My best friend was carried out of the Church in his coffin with it belting out!!

Celtic sing it as do Tottenham.

In more recent years, there is nothing like "Spirit" to get the crowd going. And I've liked the reintroduction of Marching Down the Goodison Road (sorry Mark!!). I also like "Forever" and our personalised version of Here We Go from 1984. They are more unique to Everton and can't be copied.

I notice Aston Villa and a few others are copying that Kopite chant.

And although others have copied, for Tony, "We Shall Not Be Moved".

Ray @63,

Como shoes were my choice for many years. Classic style, leather soles, lasted for years and years.

Takes me back!!
