Starting in 2004, this series of articles written by an Evertonian abroad takes a seven year journey through the hot topics of football in general and his beloved Blues in particular. Incisive, humorous and sometimes just wacky, fans will love it.

There is also an ebook version available of this title, it is for sale from Amazon or your usual provider. 

Cliff Green has been an Everton fan for 43 years. From 2004 until 2012, while overseas, he was a regular contributor to the now defunct fanzine 'Speke from the Harbour.'

These 30 articles discuss every pressing issue of the modern day game from why England will never win anything to what happened to the obstruction rule? From racism to Rooney, from fair play to financial crises.

And while this books gives a chronology of recent events in the goldfish bowl of the professional game, there's always the underlying theme of what it is to support a team that is so close and yet so far from Champions League football

Success guaranteed by a foreign billionaire investor or heritage and self-respect preserved as the trophy cabinet gathers dust? A dilemma faced by many real fans and Cliff Green expresses this anguish better than most.

About the Author

Cliff Green was born in Andover, Hampshire and he developed a love for football from an early age

He became besotted by Everton during the 1970 championship run-in idolising the Holy Trinity of Kendall, Harvey, Ball as well as his favourite centre-forward of all time, Joe Royle.

After a career as an accountant and a teacher, he left the UK and headed to Nairobi, where he spent his time teaching and trying to find out the Everton scores.
