It’s the last Toffee Bites before Christmas! Allow me speak for all of the writers at Royal Blue Mersey and wish you, our faithful readers, a happy holiday season. We love sharing our passion for Everton Football Club with fellow Toffees all over the world.
We will be around all next week to cover the crazy Christmas period. So, if you need to sneak away from the family for a bit, we’ll be in the comments free to chat about player performance, transfer chatter and anything else you wish.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, and all of that jazz!!!
