    If I remember correctly, both goals were headers.

    2019/20 Jean-Philippe Gbamin

    I don’t know if he is a good player because I have not seen enough of him. The thing is, I’m beginning to think I may never see enough of him to judge. This really is an unprecedented catalogue of setbacks for a man who was supposed to be out for 8 weeks with his original injury. Can’t even...

    Remember Roger Kirkpatrick's funny run? When he tried to sprint, his knees nearly hit his chest.

    I think this match was the season before we won the league Joey.

    Yannick Bolasie

    Bolasie was ok, no more or less than that, unfortunately his biggest assets were power and pace. Taking into account the nature of his injury and his age, it is not surprising that he is not the player he was. I was never a big fan of his, too much of a headless chicken for my liking, but, on...

    Derek played centre forward on occasion. He was decent too, good first touch, plenty of pace and a cool finisher, unfortunately he was not robust enough to play through the middle on a regular basis.

    2019/20 Fabian Delph

    Pound shop Phil Neville is what he is. I don't think he is good for the dressing room either , seems to be a Prima Donna, didn't like him having a go at players on the pitch who were playing better than he was. Over rated, nasty, injury prone liability. I don't think we will get a taker for...

    One of my all time favorites, if you wanted to play football, he’d play you off the park. If you wanted a kicking match, he’d kick you off the park. A true ‘hard man’ and a very good player. In the late 60’s it was Moggsy who gave the trinity time and space to do their magic.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    I hope the rumors are false, I think he is a keeper, bags of raw talent there just needs a bit of experience.

    Everton - The Unsung Stars.

    Aye, but people forget the absolute Bullitt header against Liverpool in 66 at Goodison.

    Everton - The Unsung Stars.

    Sandy Brown, in the days when only one substitute was allowed, ‘play anywhere’ Sandy was the ultimate number 12. He was also a more than capable left back and played 209 games for the blues.

    Would never get in the 'world class' or 'top ten' threads, but I loved them.

    Mick Lyons, Johnny Morrissey, Tommy Wright, Martin Dobson, Paul Bracewell, Chico, the list could go on and on.

    Alan Ball.

    I’ve watched the blues since the 62/63 championship season, I’ve seen some fabulous players over the years, but, none of them were as good as Alan Ball. He was tireless, blessed with a great first touch, a superb finisher, as hard as nails and, above all, a true winner. As to why he left us...
