Time to end 55 years of hurt
Arsenal 0-1 Everton
As one of English football’s most successful clubs it is almost impossible to think that Everton have failed to win the League Cup. Since the competition was launched during the 1960-61 season Everton have won the league 4 times, the FA Cup 3 times and the European Cup Winners Cup, but remarkably the League Cup […]
Transfer Rumour – Howard Kendall – January 1967
Ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Everton at the Emirates, we have looked back through the archives to bring you a classic Everton win over the Gunners. One week after the tragic news broke of the death of Howard Kendall we thought we would look back to 1969-70, when an Everton […]
That Andy King goal
Earlier this week we started to hear rumours that Howard Kendall, a young defender, has been linked with a move to Everton. His passing ability, touch on the ball and leadership are starting to show. The young lad has already played in the 1964 FA Cup Final for Preston at the tender age of 17. […]
In search of the next Alan Harper
As we build up to the Goodison derby we thought it was the perfect time to look back at a classic Everton victory over Liverpool. With Andy King sadly passing away earlier this year, we decided there was no better derby to feature than Everton’s 1-0 victory over the Kopites from 1978. Everton and Liverpool […]
Everton in the 80s – Returning Reid fires Everton top
Everton don’t win very often at Stamford Bridge, in fact there have only been three Everton wins in the last 30 years. So who remembers a famous victory back in 1987 when an Alan Harper rocket lifted the Blues to a precious 2-1 win that helped propel Howard Kendall’s men to the First Division title?
Whatever happened to Preki – The wickedest left foot in US soccer history
Our regular Everton in the 80s feature continues with a look back at the 1985-86 season. The Blues had endured a difficult start to their defence of the First Division Championship, but had out a fantastic string of results together to propel the team back into title contention. Gary Lineker was enjoying a tremendous season […]
Catterick’s 2nd biggest mistake!!!
It is barely believable that a player would ever be plucked from the obscurity of the North American Indoor Soccer League to play in the English Premier League. If that player was 29-years-old at the time, then the story would be dismissed as pure fabrication. But as the first ever Premier League season was about […]
Everton in the 80s – “We shall not be moved”
I was once told Harry Catterick made two big mistakes as Everton manager, his first mistake was the decision to sell Bobby Collins to Leeds United, a decision reached within a year of taking the Everton hot seat. It is always sad to hear of the death of an ex-Everton player, especially one who had […]
Does Howard Kendall deserve a statue outside of Goodison Park?
Our Everton in the 80s feature continues to look back exactly 28 years to the 1985-86 season. Everton had won the Division One Championship the year before and after a poor start to the season were fighting their way back into title contention on the back of a rush of goals for Gary Lineker and […]
Here on St Domingo’s, there is a regular column devoted to recognising the excellence of the 1980’s, so to keep in theme with that, I would like to focus on the man who orchestrated it all. The word ‘legend’ sometimes gets used too casually these days, but in the case of Howard Kendall, nothing could […]
