    Apologies if done before , also in no way do I profess to being an expert IMO this is my personal choices

    anyway here goes !

    Being born as an Evertonian I started appreciating Everton from 69/70 , I have picked IMO my best players from the 69/70 , 84/85 + 86/87 league winning squads - I have added a ruling - you can only pick max 6 players from any of these squads

    * As personal and optional choice - (as I was back in the UK at that time and consider these teams being highly unfortunate not to win trophies) - in brackets I have included players from the 77/78 + 78/79 squads - (you can do the same with any other years squads if you like ? )

    Goal Keeper - Southall
    Backs - T Wright , Van Den Hauwe , Ratcliffe , Labone ( Lyons )
    Midfield - Harvey , Kendall , Ball ( King )
    Forwards - Royle , Heath , T Steven ( Latchford , Thomas , Mckenzie )

    Been done to death in the last 6mts
    3rd 86 - 87
    2nd 62 - 63
    Deadheat for first 69 -70 / 84 - 85
    Tie breaker
    84 - 85 just shade it 20 frames to 19...
    Reason 69-70 would score the most 147s but 84-85 would win more of the tight frames, the 56 - 59 ones because tnay hated to lose that little bit more
    But if you give me one go in the TARDIS or De Lorean, I'd go back to 1969 and watch it all again
    Edit not exactly what you wanted but hey, its what you got

    1927-33 we had a very decent team. I heard that the striker was pretty good as well.

    Well it's the 84-85 side all the way for me. Even my dad, who was lucky enough to watch the great side of the 60s, had to admit that our european trophy winners were the better of the two.
    But still a very close call.
