Since our last Everton blog which received intense debate and over 20,000 views, we’d thought it’s only right to give the Premier League’s most improved side some well deserved coverage.

Do you really know your clubs proud history or are you just a teenage glory hunter? (not mentioning any names from the Kings Road). Remember you must pick a decent 11, not 10 forwards and a goalie. We’ll have a butchers and I’ll give my verdict from Mustard to Pony. E-mail your team to Dexy@ukfootballfinder.co.uk

    Before you start, I’ve only given Andy Grey a pukka because his best days were at Dundee and Villa where is was roughly notching a goal every two games. By the time he was at Everton, he was still some player but only 14 goals for the club in 49 and the arrival of Lineker in his final season tells it’s own story. No Greame Sharp here, or Sheedy, one of the best left footers of his generation.

    Greame Sharp had the best wedge ever to grace the football league! Not a bad player either!

    I think Cahill deserves a mention, on top of his game for 5 years now!

  • Jude

    What! No Kevin Ratcliffe, Bob Latchford or Brian Labone, and doesn’t Mikel Arteta deserve a mention?

    I am guessing that the Andy Grey mentioned is actually Andy Gray, who adorned the blue shirt of Everton with determination and pride. Not just a Sky know-it-all, but once a player for big ocassions – scoring in the finals of the League Cup for Wolves in 1980 (the winner), and also for Everton in the FA Cup Final of 1984 and the European Cup Winners Cup Final the following year.

    sorry about the Grey spelling, think i was getting him mixed up with Sasha’s surname!

    Arteta was fantastic a couple of seasons back, then he dipped with the injuries but seems to be getting back ti his best. Where do Spain get all these midfielders from?

    Bob Latchford over Duncan Ferguson any day of the week, unless we are talking about whining, high flying elbows and bad nights out on the town! 🙂

    I disagree with some of the selection.

    For starters how can you forget – Dixie Dean – arguably the greatest goalscorer of all time, and still holds the record for goals scored in a season. And also the likes of Joe Mercer, and Kanchelskis….any way see below for my Ultimate Everton Squad – this would walk the Premier League today.

    LB:- Joe Mercer
    RB:- Gary Stevens
    CB:- Kevin Ratcliffe

    Ted Sagar (GK)
    Duncan Ferguson
