What is this feeling? It feels like there are tiny bubbles inside of me. The world looks a tad brighter. Songs sound sweeter. It feels like anything is possible. What is this? Oh my, it’s hope, isn’t it? Hope. Hope that Everton can be anything but a steaming pile of garbage. Hope that Ben Baningime is the Blues savior. Hope that there is a manager with a half a clue of how to play a squad of XI players. Hope.
