Wembley  (too low)
Bernabeu  (too low)
Reebok Stadium (was too high, they have moved it now)

Goodison Park and Ibrox used to have terrible camera angles. It was a thing that was unique to Protestant clubs, as Everton and Rangers are.

Old highbury and Filbert street were awful. A 20 harder from Filbert Street looked like a goal of the season contender. Highbury was a 20 yard tap in.

Strange how a protestant club like Everton have had more Irish and catholic players play for them than most other clubs, including that other protestant club, Liverpool. Remind me again. When Ronnie Whelan played for Liverpool in 1981 was he the first or second Irish catholic to play for Liverpool. I always forget that one.

When QPR got promoted about two years ago, if a player was on the wing nearest the camera at the half way line it seemed as if you were looking directly down on his head. Looked strange, think they added a few more cameras for close ups in those situations now though.

Everton has always been a club with a strong Irish Catholic tradition. Are you sure you're not mixing them up with Liverpool FC?

It's well known that Eveton are the Protestant club in Liverpool, comrade - you only have to look at their colours, they play in blue, like Rangers. 

Liverpool are the socialist team, hence the red colours. 

Everton = Protestant, Unionist
Liverpool = Socialist, Internationalist and the team of choice of Irish Republicans

It's well known? Really?

Both Merseyside clubs actually have Methodist origins. However, Everton developed strong Irish Catholic links in the 1950s with the likes of Tommy Eglington and Jimmy O'Neill at the club, as well as Johnny Carey managing them. In contrast, Livepool's history of signing Irish players was almost non-existent prior to the 1980s.

A a matter of interest, are all clubs that wear red socialist?!

Everton are a well-known* member of the "Blues Brothers" alliance, along with Rangers, Chelsea, Linfield, the Conservative and Unionist Party. the DUP and Fine Gael. 

*Known by the dogs on the street, just like it's known that Gerry Adams personally ordered the killing of Jean McConville.

It's well-known that there's an alliance between Rangers, Chelsea and Linfield, but Everton do not form part of that group. Maybe you're aware of some connection that the rest of the general public are unaware of. Perhaps you could post up a link or two to substantiate this?

Everton and Rangers have been almost feeder clubs for each other over the years, and many players have played for both, like Trevor Steven, Gary Stevens, Duncan Ferguson, Michael Ball, Richard Gough, David Weir, Alex Cleland, and indeed managed both, such as Walter Smith. 

Contrast that to the Liverpool-Celtic connection, with Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Keane, Craig Bellamy and Gary Gillespie, and the never to be broken ties which were strengthened following Hillsborough, and reinforced during our superbly contested, but brilliantly sporting, both on and off the pitch, UEFA Cup ties in 1997 and 2003



Long live the socialist, internationalist Timmy Alliance. 

YNWA. Clap

What you listed are just coincidences, true Celtic and Liverpool have a healthy relationship but Everton are the Irish club - Liverpool FC didn't even exist when the Irish were flocking to Everton-owned Anfield.
Also I don't think many Everton fans would actually care if they were protestant, they're not obsessed with sectarian wank.

A cursory glance through Google images shows a similar array of scarves to signify the Everton - Celtic relationship, but well done on effort.

John Collins, David Moyes and Alan Stubbs will surely be airbrushed from the memory of all those staunch Unionists at Everton!

It's funny how some Liverpool fans in Ireland have a collective amnesia when it comes to the club's history. The role of John Houlding and the Freemasons in the development of the club is one that hardly sits comfortably with the ideals of socialism and Irish republicanism.

Not that it matters much to me as I don't support either Merseyside club. However, I suspect the "Timmy Alliance" comprises a handful of barstoolers somewhere!

It's a little known fact the the actual Warrenpoint bomb had "YNWA - there's only one Paisley" written on it. 

18 Brits went up with Mountbatten that day, one for every one of our league titles.

The above is satire by the way, for those too thick to understand. 

YNWA - There's only one Paisley.
