The words that follow are not intended to be Partizan .

“If it was a Boxing match it would’ve been stopped at half time, maybe even earlier.” – I’m sure those would’ve been the words of some terrible pundit at some point last night.

Unfortunately for Everton, this wasn’t a Boxing match. It could never have been a Boxing match because you’d never see a flyweight take on a heavyweight. That’s how it felt at Anfield – although you’d probably expect a flyweight boxer to attempt to learn from his mistakes having been given all of the warning signs early in the contest.

So its that time of the season again, the Merseyside Derby at Anfield which seems to affect us Blues like no other game. It’s an uncomfortable time when the nerves kick in and your stomach begins to flip over with the fear of losing derby and the impeding feeling of doom and stick that follows a defeat. However, this is nouveau Everton under the positive wizardry of Roberto Martinez and all of a sudden any game becomes winnable.

The problem that Martinez faces with this encounter is undoubtedly Everton’s growing injury list which saw the excellent Bryan Oviedo added after his horrendous leg break in Saturday’s FA Cup victory over Stevenage. Oviedo has been fabulous this season for the Blues and his form left many Evertonians saying ‘Leighton who?’ when the England full-back was out with a broken toe in December. One common thing has come out of Oviedo’s injury and that is what a truly nice bloke Bryan is, everyone has said it and we all wish him a speedy recovery as he stages his own mission impossible to make Costa Rica’s World Cup squad.

A couple of weeks ago I sat at my computer and started typing. A few hours later I had managed to ramble on for about ten thousand words and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with the fruits of my labour. In the end it became an article on footyscene which can be found . Much to my surprise, I received all kinds of nice comments on Twitter about the piece and was encouraged to write another.

The problem is that I tend to only have the motivation to write about something if I’m particularly passionate about it and if I’m being brutally honest with myself, I don’t have a huge number of things I am really, truly passionate about. My wife and kids are certainly one, football is another, exploring the world of beer might be another but by a considerable distance, the passion I have held the longest is Everton. I tend to separate being an Evertonian from my love of football, because in many ways I see these as two completely separate things. Granted, they are closely linked, but being an Evertonian is more than about just football and it’s that which I’m compelled to write about.

The end of a year brings the inevitable tidal wave of reviews and previews – and whilst the idea of ranked lists is well a little rank – I thought I’d share some of my highlights of 2013 and a preview into some of the things that I am most looking forward to on the music front in 2014.
