    Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia

    Lukaku's misses today reminded me so much of his performance in the 2016 semi final with Man Utd when he missed chance after chance (including a penalty) and it cost us a place in the FA Cup final. He rarely comes up with the goods when it really matters. This vid always makes me laugh though...

    The way this joker constantly falls upwards he'll probably get the Barcelona or Real Madrid job next. Fraud of a manager.

    Abel Xavier

    Did ok for us, played in the derby win at Anfield in '99. A solid if unspectacular player. I can honestly say I wasn't remotely arsed when he moved across the park. He was out of contract that summer anyway and we'd have got sod all for him so it was nice to get £800,000 even if it was off the...

    "Watch Classic Matches Again"

    36 years ago today, two goals from Adrian Heath, and one from Paul Power on his first return to Maine Road, give us a comfortable 3-1 win at Man City on route to our last league title. Power apparently got bollocked by Howard Kendall after the game for refusing to celebrate his goal!

    FA CUP 3rd round draw

    I'm just grateful Howard Kendall in 1984, and Joe Royle in 1995, didn't have the same loser attitude some Blues on here have of 'lets get knocked out quickly' as we were struggling in the league in both those years when FA Cup 3rd round day came around.

    FA CUP 3rd round draw

    So three of the last 5 seasons in the 3rd round we've drawn Liverpool away twice, and now Man Utd away. This club is cursed and jinxed. Who else gets such horrible draws? 'Good Times'.

    FA CUP 3rd round draw

    We've not played a cup tie at Old Trafford since the 1985/86 season when we battered them 4-2 in that joke screen sports 'super' cup.

    FA CUP 3rd round draw

    I don't get the losers mentality some seem to have in wanting us knocked out of this competition as soon as possible. Surely a run in it will help us build up some much needed confidence and momentum.

    "Watch Classic Matches Again"

    24 years ago today, a pretty forgettable 1-0 victory over Newcastle made famous only for it being the night Big Dunc was flogged to the Geordies. It apparently spread like widefire around Goodison he was off but I must have been the only person in the ground not to have known about it as it...

    Almost got em -players that were linked with Everton

    I remember in the Autumn of 1991 us being strongly linked with Romanian great Gheorghe Hagi. I almost creamed myself at the prospect of him coming here. In his autobiography Howard Kendall told the story of due to his contacts in Spain he was alerted to his availability and wanted to sign him...

    Almost got em -players that were linked with Everton

    Man Utd wanted him but ended up signing Andy Cole instead. Collymore probably would've had a different career had he been managed by Alex Ferguson instead of Roy Evans (who he described as 'weak'), Brian Little and John Gregory.

    Almost got em -players that were linked with Everton

    We agreed what was then a British transfer record with Forest for Stan Collymore in 1995 before being gazumped by Liverpool. We all know how his career turned out to go with his off the field stuff but Collymore was a top player and would've made a terrifying prospect for defenders had he been...

    The Moment You Knew He Had Failed...

    Despite his awful tenure, I don't think it was until that infamous 0-2 home defeat to Coventry in October '94 (Duncs home debut for us) that it was clear Mike Walker's days were numbered. I recall him coming on the pitch at full-time applauding the fans in the Gwladys Street, some had bizarrely...
