When Skies are Grey is an independent Evertonian fanzine. We have been established for 25 years and producing approaching two hundred issues. The aim of the fanzine is to provide an open forum for all Blues to write about the football club they love and we have attracting many contributors with many different and contrasting views.
The fanzine is many things: funny, serious, influential, crude, irreverent, sometimes cruel but always blue. We present the world through Evertonian eyes without compromise.
From August 2013 WSAG will be a digital only fanzine producing monthly issues throughout the football season.
Inside our pages you will find articles on the players, the management, the club, our history our tradition and the lengths we go to supporting the team. You will also find pieces on football in general, our rivalries and the things we do when we're not going the match.
Welcome to another issue of When Skies are Grey.
Reality bites. We all knew that the rebuilding task facing Marco Silva was massive and that he would need time to sort things out. Our early form suggested he was getting somewhere but a couple of defeats have gone through any optimism with a dose of salts.
But there’s still plenty to be happy about. We are playing better. The first half at Arsenal being a case in point. We could have been three up but the more the game wore on our deficiencies became exposed.
Simply we need a goalscorer and a more dominant prescence in the middle. We also need some of our bigger names to put in better all round performances. Its easy to blame the kids but others seem to be getting away with it.
Moving on, what are going to find in this issue. Loads of the usual stuff about this and that. More of the this, less of the that this time.
Does that make sense? Not even in my head. Forget it, swipe the page and get stuck into the issue.
Remember WSAG welcome contributions from everyone. We have always been an open forum for all Evertonians, providing a platform for you to talk about our own club. It’s how we started and it’s how we’ll finish.
All voices are equal in WSAG. No wannabe sports presenters here.
