    2019/20 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    He has been on the pitch, but he hasn't played for us yet. Our midfield has been shocking for a good while, I hope it works out for Everton and him once he gets playing.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    I'm old enough to remember when Everton fans were delighted we got Pickford to replace Tim Howard. Clearly the delight was that we got rid of Tim Howard. Pickford was player of the season his first season as I recall? Must have just got lucky for 38 games.

    Jonjoe Kenny

    I think some would have really liked him to have made the grade. But I think most of us agree we need a new right back. I'm sure he will do well at the right level.

    BBC Radio Merseyside - Greatest PL Team Poll

    We were so lucky to have Kanchelskis for the time we did. What a player.

    BBC Radio Merseyside - Greatest PL Team Poll

    Our best back four has to be Baines, Lescott, Jags and Coleman in their prime years. When Distin replaced Lescott, he was good but never forgiven by some for mistakes in big games.

    Poll: Complete the season at neutral venues behind closed doors

    I'm old enough to remember when Moyes had our defenders hold hands when defending free kicks and corners.

    Poll: Complete the season at neutral venues behind closed doors

    They had an awful record in February/March, they were about to crash and burn. Probably.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    When football comes back, he needs to do something on the pitch. This is how we will judge him. If he does well I am sure everybody will forget he might have had sex with women during lockdown.

    Wise words.

    Everton - The Unsung Stars.

    I'm going to nominate the fans as unsung stars. I have just been watching clips of us being robbed by refs against the RS time after time. Fair play to the fans for keeping their cool. And they always believe in the next game.

    Everton - The Unsung Stars.

    In the days of just one substitute, priceless.

    Stoke fan here in peace...

    I do know a Doris in New Zealand who is a big Stoke City fan. She was born and raised in those parts. She only sings when you're winning! And she has a sister with decent norks. I like her sister better. Edit. And good luck with your article.

    Better than 85-87

    One thing is undeniable... The 80s teams were teams and not a bunch of (insert insults here) like many players we have had over the last 30 years. The only improvement with the modern player is fitness and more emphasis on technical ability. But the 80s lads had more fun!

    2019/20 Mason Holgate

    He is a good player who could become a really good player with a better player next to him. Sort it out Carlo.

    All time top flight points race

    Unless something changes, I can guarantee we will be lower than third in ten years time. Lucky we had so many points on the board! What would the table look like for the last 30 years only?
