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.
Look away now.
Welcome again to When Skies are Grey. I don’t know what to say anymore.
That’s a lie. I do.
It’s not good enough. Not by a long chalk.
It’s not the worst it’s ever been but it’s pretty close. As you’d expect this issue is full of vitriolic comment aimed at the players and especially the management.
There were plenty of us who were prepared to suck it up and see with BFS – or Lardiola as some have taken to calling him. Happy to suffer in silence for the sake of the Club. But, honestly. Rollovers against Tottenham and Arsenal are one thing but limp displays against the likes of West Brom and Watford are something else entirely.
Some are calling for Moshiri to sort it out but it’s arguable that he’s been responsible for creating the mess in the first place.
So, as I said, there’s loads of stuff in this issue for you to get your teeth into. It’s not happy reading but it’s essential. The #wsagmatch stuff is particularly pertinent. And, there’s some wonderful dark, jet-black humour in there.
Thanks for buying WSAG. We appreciate each and everyone of you. Especially all our new subscribers. The mag is still growing and that’s something we are particularly proud about.
Remember WSAG welcome contributions from everyone. It would probably help the balance of things if we had a couple of young ‘uns getting involved. We’ve grown up with this shite it would be interesting to see how you lot feel about it all.
To get involved, just get in touch at the usual email or via Twitter etc. We have always been an open forum for all Evertonians, providing a platform for you to talk about our own club.
Your continuing support is very much appreciated. If you’ve said hello either on Twitter, Facebook, at the ToffeeArt stall in St Luke’s or on the street – thanks.
We are WSAG. You are WSAG.
