  1. Brilliant! Well done, lads. Pity you’re having to make the decision for yourselves and not with the 100% backing of the FA.

    Well done Everton. Now that such a high profile team has declared themselves fully in favour others will follow.

  3. It will be interesting to see if the BBC’s Match of the day report on this, and if they do, if it will be a positive approach. I wonder if the BBC’s homophobic history is over yet?

    Well done Everton….PN do you really have to keep on reminding us that Joey Barton is straight?….we get the message

  5. Gary Lineker has tweeted he will be wearing the laces on Match of the Day, Paddy Power are sending him a pair.

  6. I do hope that this doesn’t encourage outbreaks of random “bumming” around Goodison Park – No harm in it, of course, but surely Anfield would have been a better place for this type of thing
