And if you weren't served by dinner ladies at lunchtime you'd probably have brought your food in your lunch box. Confusing all round.

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

^^yep I think so. Steadfast in my belief that advertising doesn't impact me (though I'm sure it does to some degree), and frankly I just don't want it to get in the way of what I'm watching.

Absolutely. I don't need reminding that Rolex sponsor the golf every few minutes.

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

I think there's a lot of overthinking here. It's a minor partnership that will completely pass by the vast majority of non-Everton fans, and frankly, probably most Evertonians. Most people who come across the partnership aren't going to bat an eyelid about the man (Usmanov) who used to sponsor the t...

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

He is not maligned due to his ability or performances to help Everton beat relegation, in my view it is because he is a proven cheat at both Watford and Everton I wouldn't want the rat anywhere near a club I support. The Brazilian will likely be out of the club at the first chance he gets anyway.. ...

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

I really hope this doesn't mean more blue watches. I'd like to think it means nothing other than CW's name appearing in Everton related matters. The idea of an Everton themed watch, even as a blue, is awful. Couldn't get my head around the Tribus Liverpool watch and that doesn't change just cause i...

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

Actually a CW / Richarlison watch would be a decent tie in. Great quality, value for money, indefatigable, and wrongly maligned by people who don't know what they're talking about.

The Christopher Ward text would look great wrapped around St. Rupert's tower :lol:

Edit: dreadful use of a smiley.

Re: Christopher Ward & Everton Football Club

And with one gutting announcement my interest in CW has come to an end. 21 watches currently in the collection and more planned, but now I've no interest. I know it's childish. I know to many it's 'only' football. But today's a very sad day for me and I'm genuinely massively disappointed. From a fu...

Re: Christopher Ward becomes Everton's Official Global Timing Partner

I can never get beyond "Global timing partner" in any of these sponsorship deals, it's such a daft phrase. Even as an Evertonian.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

Train strikes. I understand why they're doing it (i.e. they want more money / better conditions and importantly, they can), but selfishly it causes me a huge amount of issues.

Re: After Just Over 2 Years Wait It's Arrived

Congratulations. After about a year I'd have assumed I'd been forgotten about!

Definitely seems to be more threads here and elsewhere about people getting the call - not enough to say things are changing but good for those who are on a list.
