How long have you supported Everton?

Since 1981. Previous to this, I think I supported Tottenham Hotspur.

Who or what was responsible for you being an Evertonian – or were you ‘chosen’?

I only ‘followed’ Spurs, because my older brother followed Arsenal. I distinctly remember watching Everton playing on the telly and thinking I liked them…. and as everyone at my school were glory-supporting Liverpool, I chose Everton.
