As has been said 84/85 for me so many great memories.

Sharp's goal at Anfield.


The Cup Winners cup semi-final and final.



And the league game against Utd.

i was right behind sharpys anfield goal, i was with the priest out of st jimmys, never heard a man of the cloth swear so much, just jumping about for ages, even with fellas i'd never met before, never felt has much elation as i did at that game

I tried to recreate that goal at break time and during games at school for weeks after that and always fell on my backside but the feeling of joy that goal gave me always dulled any pain.

Being there and seeing the Kopites faces must have been priceless. Hopefully, we will get those days again soon, been too long.

nothing before, nothing after has matched that for me, the cup and league wins were amazing, but that moment is etched in me for eternity

I wish I could say 84/85 season - unfortunately I wasn't even born and I didn't really start following Everton religiously until around about Moyes' first full season in charge of Everton (2002/3 if I remember correctly?)

Best season I can remember was 2013/4 during Martinez's first full season. He had tactics pretty much spot on, we were defensively pretty solid but attacking wise we were really good and it was just a joy to watch us: Doing the double against Man Utd, destroying Arsenal, good hard fought 1-0 win against Chelsea with a great debut from Gareth Barry, the emergence of Ross Barkley, John Stones and Romelu Lukaku, 7 game winning run. It's a pity that despite finishing with 72pts, there were 4 teams who had done better than us, if it had been any other season, that would have been enough for a top 4 finish, in fact 2 seasons ago that tally was enough for a 2nd place finish.

1970/71
1984/85

will we ever replicate those heady days..

1066 was deadly. 1970 for me. 1966 was alright as well. 1977 was very entertaining. 84/85 was gangbusters. Glad to have witnessed it all as the future looks flipping....insert word here like  :police:

That 07/08 uefa cup run - tuning in on thursday nights for Colin Murray's shitty presenting, Kevin Ratcliffe's pronunciation of Ja Jelka, and Anichebe's Ronaldo-like transformation. Haven't had that level of excitement about the team since sadly. 13/14 was good result wise but didn't have anything special.

Probably 2008/09 for me. If jags and arteta were fit for the final I’m convinced we would’ve won that game.

1984-85 and 1986-87 best seasons in my life time. Even 85-86 was better than any other season apart from the end losing out on both trophies to you know who. I doubt we'll see anything as good as that in the near future.

I was lucky enough to be there for 84/85. Superb year.

1970 Championship win was a great memory as well. Alan Whittle popping up at the end of the season to score every time he touched the ball. That's what it seemed like.
My Mum let me go to the match on 1st April on a school night...only because I'd studied hard all weekend before for my "o" Levels
Rotterdam \'85
I was there!!!

the 69/70 season was my first full season of watching Everton, and I never thought that midfield could be bettered, then 84/85 , my last going home and away regular,what can you say, I have been lucky to see some truly great teams, and some absolute dross.

I feel we have some very talented players, we need someone who can make a team from them. could it be unsworth? who knows. but I hope so.
would love to see something special again.
I'm the "trophy husband" from the game my wife regrets playing.
