Sufferer, 1966 - present

My Father, who shall never be forgiven, took me to Everton V Man City in 1966, the year that he also went to Wembley twice to see the Blues/Toffees win the FA Cup and again to see England win the World Cup. Since then I have suffered through many seasons with my thousands of Goodison brothers, but oh what an exquisite pain it is and I will always have that old lady Goodison Park as a second home, as they say "there is always next year!"

"Ian will always be our favorite ELDEST child, although we did consider adoption when he turned 30 and then again when he turned 40. He shortly turns 50, so Bill and I have discussed changing our names and moving country! Only kidding! " - 2011
