You smell that? It’s the fresh air of another match day morning. It’s such a different aroma than what wafted around Goodison Park just several weeks ago. Instead of sewage and stale mayonnaise, we now get hints of lavender and fresh cut cedar. Gone are the port-o-pots and in their place are Yankee Candle kiosks. Let’s hope the good times keep on rolling on Monday against bottom-dwelling Swans.
