    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    The main asset required for a keeper who plays in a top team that rarely get troubled is concentration as they need to be alert when called upon after long periods of doing nothing. This balloon lacks concentration in abundance.

    New Stadium Discussion

    I'm surprised he wasn't retained Client side by Everton though as concept Architect to ultimately oversee the Delivery Architect's detailed drawings to ensure the concept isn't deviated from too much. Unless like others have said initial cost plans from Laing indicate the design is £xxx over...

    The Derby -Vandalism

    They've actually only beat us at Goodison once since 2011*. I'd imagine that is one of the poorest records they have of winning at any ground in the league to be honest. *Obviously they were games played with a full Goodison.

    The Derby -Vandalism

    I agree completely regarding advantage being lost regarding removal of the fans from the ground. However there is nothing we can do about that with the current situation and the fact football is being forced back at all costs. What we can do something about is insist the game remains at GP...

    The Derby -Vandalism

    Really?? You don't think they'd have a field day exploiting the huge open spaces behind Michael Keane on a Wembley pitch? Doesn't make sense to me that.

    The Derby -Vandalism

    If you re-read my post you will see that i've said we lose the advantage of having the crowd there (which is unfair and not in keeping with the intentions of the competition at the outset. However we would obviously be at even more of a disadvantage if we played them somewhere away from our...

    The Derby -Vandalism

    It should be played at Goodison. We’re already losing the advantage of having a crowd there, why give the horrible tw*ts even more advantage by playing at Wembley or somewhere like that? Everton should stand firm on this. If the fixture can’t be played at GP on safety grounds because their fans...

    Old School 1970's EFC player chants.

    60's chant from the brilliant Golden Vision film: When you hear the coppers shout, hey put the candle out We are the Goodison Gang We have no manners we spend our tanners, we are respected wherever we may go Marching down the Goodison Road All the windows open wide When you hear the coppers...

    Super Kev and Don Hutch were on fire that game!

    Players you were happy we signed but turned out to be pants, and vice versa.

    A big disappointment for me was Stefan Rehn. Not because he was a household name or anything but because he was signed from abroad which was a rarity in England in those days and as a result there was some excitement and a sense of the unknown about him. Turned out he played 1 game I think...

    Away fans in the new park end

    There was definitely a barrier there but it was never actually used for away fans in the end. Think the club expected the stand to be half empty most of the time as gates were really poor in the early 90's but as I said above, crowds picked up from 94/95 onwards.

    Away fans in the new park end

    Yeah I had a ticket there in the first game it opened against Villa and was in the 'Park End West'. Was always all home fans though. I suspect they may have done it as a contingency measure so away fans could be accomodated in the future if gates remained low (they were often sub 20k in the...

    The great escapes.

    You're right that there was a massive squad overhaul over the 18 month period preceding the 98 escape. I thought Myhre, Hutchison and Madar were all very good signings by Kendall. Tiler wasn't too bad either from what I can recall. The rest were disasters, including Bilic bought for big money...

    The great escapes.

    Whilst the appointments of Harvey and Kendall mk II won't be looked back on with any degree of fondness I think both were good, sensible appointments at the time. I wouldn't say they were unambitious. Harvey was an obvious choice to take over from Howie to carry on the good work, very much in...

    The great escapes.

    The original plans for the Park End were a 2 tier stand, I remember them publishing it in the programme shortly before the old stand was demolished. They then cut costs and went for the cheap option, a single tiered mecanno stand not in keeping with the rest of the stadium.

    The great escapes.

    As has been said by many, 94 was far better in that we actually won a dramatic game. Also felt really optimistic that summer as we had a new owner and manager (look how they both turned out!) and had money to spend to rebuilt. We were linked that summer with all sorts of players who had...

    Time machine to May 1995....

    Loads of that squad would make today's squad imo: Southall (and would make first 11) Hinchcliffe Watson (would make first 11) Ablett Parkinson (first 11) Horne Stuart Ferguson (first 11) Rideout Limpar (first 11)

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    Spot on all of this. Plus I would hardly class being our player of the year in 2017/18 the yardstick for success. We were truly horrible that season
