I had tears in my eyes after Chelsea
And was absolutely exhausted. We'd got food in, and I couldn't eat for two hours after the game as I was all over the place.
Newcastle was the same. After all the Benitez stuff and turning my back on them, that game dragged me right back in.
And upset a couple of Newcastle mates when someone using my twitter account called them 'SMALLTIME HORSE-PUNCHING BELLENDS'.
…my personal view is that it’s definitely made going to the game more of an occasion. I’ve been going long enough to be somewhat ambivalent to most games, but the last few the fans have made memorable and exciting. I like the blue smoke bombs, but less keen on the flares after seeing a few fans got burnt by them on Sunday.
But on the flip side, #### me it’s exhausting, and has left me feeling utterly drained at full time.
But the atmosphere has definitely pulled us through when we were dead and buried a fortnight ago.
…along the lines of treating every game as a cup final might not be the best idea, especially when we have better quality players than the teams we’re facing. I sort of get that, not sure the fevered atmosphere helps someone like Gordon in his decision making.
Then again, better going mental in the stands than sleep walking our way to relegation I guess.
I am hoping our support and the commitment of the players will see us through.
If we win, I will celebrate it like if we won a cup. Plus, I will never take Everton in the Premier League for granted.
If we don’t win then I think it will be us who is being relegated. Avoid red cards, own goals, free kicks outside the box, giving away penalties, and I think we will win. Goodison at night has done a lot of good things for our team.
