The Sweeper: My Teams Norman Wisdom Everton and Newcastle
Saturday 17 April 1999
"I like Everton because they're a big club and over the years have usually done well in both the cup and the league. Over the past six seasons they've struggled but made sure they've not been relegated. The fans are so passionate, it's like they will the players to stay in the Premiership. I'm also a Newcastle fan and, although I was upset when Duncan Ferguson left Everton, at least he went to another great team. Some of my big pals are also Evertonians, including Ed Stewart, Derek Hatton and Bill Kenwright, and my agent's son, Elliot Mans. We often got to games together. Just keep your eye on next year, the Millennium. We'll be back up with the big boys, winning everything once more."
