Even for those of us who weren’t around in the 1980s (like me), we still know that it was a magical time and one of the most successful decades in the club’s history.
Wembley became a second home for Howard Kendall’s team, the club won two league titles, an FA Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup.
In his book ‘Here We Go‘, Simon Hart, a lifelong Evertonians who has been reporting on European football for more than a decade for UEFA.com, interviews some of the best-loved Everton players from the 1980s.
On Sunday, I spoke to Simon about the book and he told me some of the stories given to him directly from the players themselves.
In his video, Simon provides a portrait of a period when a group of young footballers came together to achieve something special.
We also spoke about Everton in the modern era and if we’ll ever reach those amazing heights again.
