I was born in Mill Road, and I still live in L6 about 100yards off, believe it or not, Everton Rd.
My full address still has Everton in the title, and I view it with both a small teeny weeny bit of pride, and a very large healthy dose of smirking, humour, and guffaw.
Pride, becuase, like it or not, Everton is quite a historic district of the city,that goes back several hundred years, and the football team itself (St Domingo) were actually started in the back room of a pub(long demolished -- unlike The Sandon.
) that used to stand on Village street, about 600 yards from where I live.
If you are a true football fan- regardless of colour-, you will understand the history of that.
Smirking, humour, and guffaw. I sometimes leave out the district or Everton in my full address, just to simplify or shorten my address for others. In the same way that many of you do, depending on where you live, ie: street-city-county-postcode. etc. and leave out the district.
On the other hand, I sometime deliberately put the district in, just to remind myself and everyone else that Everton is a DISTRICT of Liverpool, as, certainly from outside of the city, not many people actually know it's a district, and not just a football team.
It reminds me that they are smaller than us, in every way, and gives me a chuckle that outside of the city, no one would ever know it, unless I reminded them, once in a while.
Down the years, It's been commented on that I have both Everton and Liverpool in my address, and I always remeind individuals that it's a small district of the city only a few miles across, and for the most part not known outside of the city boundaries.
Liverpool, on the other hand is known world wide.
My match going and supporting credentials are not in question, that said, I won't be dropping the Everton from my Address, any time soon, I like it. It reminds me of their place in the world, and that if it wasn't for Liverpool - both the city and the team - they'd just be another backwater, with a bit of history behind them, and nothing much now, in the modern world.
In a funny way, I find it quite unique. I mean. Who else has TWO
football teams in their address.
