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 When Skies are Grey.
Well. Not much has happened since our last issue… Nah.
Ronald Koeman was sacked just as E044 was wiping its feet before entering your devices. Who would have thought that some five weeks later we’ve only just got around to appointing a successor.
And, BIGSAM. Not in our worst nightmares.
As you’d expect there’s plenty in this issue about the appointment – much of it critical but then that’s to be expected. But he’s here now and we are all going to have to get on it with it – he’s certainly not the first Everton manager to be unpopular that’s for sure. Maybe from day one though.
We thought about adopting a fresh start approach with this issue and jettisoning all the wsagmatch pieces but, you know, painful as it is to read them they are of value. They are a clear marker to show just how bad things got. For me the players – the senior professionals - have an awful lot to answer for.
Anyway, time will tell. Stop reading all this nonsense… get stuck in! There’s plenty of other people’s opinions to read as ever.
Thanks for buying WSAG. We appreciate each and everyone of you.
Remember WSAG welcome contributions from everyone. To get involved, just get in touch. We have always been an open forum for all Evertonians to talk about our own club. It's what we do. It’s how we roll.
We are WSAG. You are WSAG.
God bless you one and all
