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.
Everton are cool again.
Welcome to another issue of When Skies are Grey.
Again, a bit behind schedule. Life gets in the way sometimes.
But there’s plenty to smile about this time. Everton are on the up and up and while we’ve all been here before and know that many potholes lie ahead, it’s nothing if not exciting.
I turned to my son, who’s had a season ticket for more than half of his fifteen years, and said ‘This is the best team you’ve seen’ … and it probably is.
I mean just how good is André Gomes. Really? And Richarlison? We have so much promise and with time and patience we may well finally deliver.
Consequently the tone in this issue is positively sunshine. As ever there’s loads to read and enough pages to get your finger aching from all that swiping.
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.
All voices are equal in WSAG. No wannabe sports presenters here. Our aim remains true. It’s how we started and it’s how we’ll finish.
