Only in America 2

Everton are playing in Dallas, where it's 100 degrees F. (Don't over-exert yourselves, guys - you've got to play Liverpool on September 9.)
If, like me, you're on tenterhooks - whatever they are - awaiting the result of the Club America game, you may wish to calm yourself by reading this in today's NYT.

Hope we're not making Villefranche too popular.

The NYT no less .... excuse me while I get on my knees ..... we are not worthy, we are not worthy ...

Thanks folks - it shoved up the Amazon rating but didn't do Everton any good. They lost in a penalty shoot-out, Alan Stubbs hitting the cross-bar. What is it about the Brits and penalties?

It's because we are so law-abiding .... we want to avoid any penalties.

Even the pre-payment penalties?
