Honour Or Disgrace?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure whether this has been done before as I have only been around on the boards for less that a week. I have search, but was unable to find anything...

 

Anyway, which players in your opinion, left under a cloud, and which left Goodison Park as hero's.

 

For example;

 

LEFT AS A HERO...

DUNCAN FERGUSON (always dedicated and strong. Made a difference to the game/squad)

KEVIN CAMPBELL (praised the club while he was with us, praised us when he left. Complete gentleman in my opinion)

NIGEL MARTIN (not with us for long, but really made a difference)

DAVID UNSWORTH (still and Everton supporter. Returned to us at every opportunity, and when he wasn't with us, he still sat in the Gwladys Street supporting us!)

 

LEFT IN DISGRACE

WAYNE ROONEY (once a blue, always a Manc? Need not say anymore, still open wounds to me!)

NICK BARMBY (ditched Everton and walked across Stanley Park to Liverpool, afterwhich he was nicknamed Judas for a while)

 

etc, etc, etc...

 

You will probably not agree with my choices so post yours!

 

:D

Abel Xavier...

sung to the tune of Dont You Want Me Baby - Human League...

Jamo11 that is genius! I have never heard that before! lol! :D

 

I though of another anyway...

 

DISGRACE - Daniel Amokachi (Apart form being very very disappointing after that the performances he put in during the '94 World cup - didn't he say he hated being a player at Everton and demanded to be released during the Joe Royle era?)

Peter Beagrie, I saw him do an interview once, I think it was on Soccer AM and they said 'what's the best club you've ever been at?' he replied 'well city was fantastic but Everton will always be closest to my heart' Come on! he wasnt even here that long. Got to love him for that :P lol

He spoke to Kendall about his alcoholism on behalf of all the players as captain, as the players were all pissed off with him turning up to training drunk, and Kendall told him he'd never play for Everton again. Apparently anyway.

Yup yup, completely agree with Neville Southall...definately a hero. Especially when he threw his dummy of out his cot at half time and sat against the post at the Park End waiting for second half...class. Brilliant keeper, and a super servant for Everton.

 

And again, completely agreed wih Adam...Franny Jeffers, greedy and believed his own hype. Shame, he could have been a talent.

Never liked the man, which is why I said "for me" in the post. I will agree he was not as bad as some, I just couldn't stand the man, and remember he was sacked for a reason.

Hero:

 

Duncan Ferguson (No need to mention his contribution)

Kevin Campbell (Loved us, we loved him)

Steve Watson (always loyal - even though not a fan, stills loves us)

David Unsworth (not the best player - but when in a blue shirt, gave 120%)

Joe Parkinson - (never let anyone past him whilst in a blue shirt)

Graeme sharp (still at Everton!)

Dave Hickson (quote " I would have broken bones for any club that I played for, but I would have died for Everton" says it all really).

Dixie Dean - (Rooney, are you reading this. This guy was a proper scouser and stayed! And is STILL the best striker that ever played in England)

Neville Southall (ok, he spat the dummy once, but he never gave anything less than 1million % - even when he was aging and overweight)

Kevin Ratcliffe (Quote "After leaving Everton, losing didn't seem to hurt anymore")

Brian Labone (still at Everton until his untimely death - Quote "remember boys, one evertonian is worth 20 liverpudlians!")

Howard Kendall (needs no explanation)

Colin Harvey (needs no explanation)

 

Unsung Hero's:

Paul Rideout

Lee Carsley

John Ebbrell

Dave Watson

Tony Kay

 

Villans:

 

Olivier Dacourt (never wanted to play for us)

Nick 'Judas' Barmby (couldn't wait to get off the sinking ship to leave us to rot)

Gary 'Shithouse' Speed (couldn't handle the pressure - apparently)

Alex Nyarko (spat his dummy - glad about that!)

Mikael Madar (free Lance rip off merchant -tricked us all into thinking he was a footballer)

Tomas Radszinski (Left in a dark cloud and then proceeded to rip into us)

Francis Jeffers (thank god that we didn't re-sign him again!)

Rooney (only for the goal celebration last year)

Claus Thomsen (wasn't really his fault but he tookthe club for all the money he could - when we were struggling!)

Mike Walker - did he know what he was doing?

Walter Smith - started well but then started to sinkthe ship - jumping before anyone else.

 

 

The list goes on...

Ah, Slaen Bilic...with his squad number of 28...when he actually arrived.

 

The guy who kept us waiting....and waiting, he claimed he needed to honour West Ham, but it was really because he wanted to pick up a several hundred thousand pound bonus at the end of the season.

 

When he then joined Everton, but supended than he did on the pitch...went to the World Cup, play brilliant, returned and flounded at Everon. Marvellous!

 

We seem to have attracted them in the past! Hopefully that's behind us now.

villan: kroldrup (played 1 and a half matchs, claimed to not being able to adjust to english life, paid a but for him, sold on the cheap, c*nt in my eyes)

Koldrup...I went to a pre-season fixture at Goodison and saw him. Was completely uninspired and unconvinced with him...

 

 

Quite right, Koldrup is a disgrace, however, I think Everton were sold a lemon with him...Apparently, Moyes was acting on information given to him by a leading EFC scout...sadly.

 

I think we should research our prospective purchases better than we do....hopefully, did!

Bilic made a cnut of himself @ that world cup & never recovered from the stigma...

 

Funny as now weve seen a spate of Bilic incidsent's at this recent world cup.

Felt sorry for Blanc after that game tho Bilic got him sent off and then Blanc was suspended for the final which was his last game for France and France's finest hour if I was Blanc I would still be miffed at him for that, what Ronaldo did seems pretty minor in comparison.

Brett Angel and Stuart Barlow were our strikeforce at one point. Not so much villains as completely shte, they were dark times.

They were the two subs for the Wimbledon game, good job we didn't need them. (and I still think "Jigsaw" is one of the funniest (and cleverest) nicknames of all time :lol: .)

I agree Mike i have to explain the Jigsaw joke to everyone i say it to, he's a hero at Wigan tho!

 

Does anyone remember the day he fell over the wall into the Gwladys Street?

 

The replays on MOTD showed a load of lads punching him before throwing him back over the wall with a few nasty words thrown in :lol:

My memories of the early nineties are a bit addled but I'm pretty sure Barlow couldn't stop scoring for the reserves, but the records show that he only got thirteen goals in eighty-eight appearences for the first team...just couldn't make the step up sadly.

dont forget Bilic was a lawyer, made his own contract, and it was water tight to say the least, milked the fuck out of our bank account!
