Title: Everton Welsh
Post by: neil316 on October 01, 2017, 05:36:57 PM
Hi all, I have recently written an article on the history of Welsh players at Everton and wanted to know what you though of it, hope this is ok with everyone. I really enjoyed writing the article and discovering the massive part that Welsh players have played in making Everton the club it is today.

Hope you like, let me know what you all think

Cheers, thanks for that. I kept it to more of a Welsh born XI, thought it was easier. Pat only joined Wales for a laugh!

Better on the football pitch than in person, in all honesty. Enjoy though.

Your the first person to say that. Everyone else I've spoken to who has met him says he's a top bloke. He works with an ex colleague of mine's husband and she says her hubby loves him

Might have caught him on a bad day eh? It was only in Llandudno one day, not at an event or anything. He also bores me to death on Twitter, usually a good insight to someone's character :)

Nev for me as the best goalie EVER ,banks -no ,yashin -no . I watched a video of when he was in his prime and his reactions were beyond belief .One match I went to I was in Gwladys street in line with the penalty area line ( went there for more than 30 years ) left side ,anyway he saved a header that was impossible but he did .Say hello to the best for me brownie
