These open letters are flying about at the moment.
Yesterday, redshite owner John Thomas Henry was fire fighting to appease the shite faithful and today we have one of a completely different kind from Denis Stracqualursi to the Everton faithful.
Count Strac was full of admiration about his Everton experience (once Everton has touched you.....) and he described it as living the beautiful dream.
The Count became a cult figure (that was cult) overnight due to his non-stop effort and bagging a few goals to boot. Anyone who saw his first appearance against Villa reserves possibly realised that he would not be around long. But the season turned around and we have fond memories of Strac too.
The Count said: "Playing in that stadium was like a beautiful dream and something which I will never forget,"
"I will be grateful all my life for the kindness with which I was treated. Some of the nicest things that happened in my life happened there."
"The year at Everton was the best year of my career and I will never forget those amazing fans."
"I loved my time there and I enjoyed every single training session. I was surrounded by top, top players who were all really nice guys as well and they all helped me to feel part of the group."
"I was also lucky to have a great manager in David Moyes and I learnt so much from him."
"He is also a great person and he was always really straight with me and told me exactly what he was thinking. It was something which was really useful while I was there and something that will really help me in my future career."
"Reaching the semi-final of the FA Cup was fantastic as well and again highly emotional when you consider all the work the squad had put in to get there."
"I really love Everton and will always have a soft spot for the place. I send all my best wishes to the Club and its supporters for the new season."
Bloody hell Denis, we are near crying reading this! Well said The Count, we will not forget you.
