Got a great reception on Monday night.

I'll remember this goal for as long as I live

absolutely loved that

was with @aylesbury blue (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=297) and @Sensei2 (https://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2664) that day (or whatever Wayne's username is these days!) on Wayne's first visit to Goodison Park.  Sat in the Lower Bullens in what were pretty crappy seats, then in the 90th minute flying forward and the whole day being amazing because of that one moment!

Controversial maybe but Andy Gray was a boss commentator.

That was by far the best Andy Johnson moment. That game was so nerve wracking and it was the perfect end to the game. I haven't felt that way since I don't think.

He was a little gun when he first joined us.

For the first time in years I'd thought we finally had attacking potential to really push on and start dreaming again.

Me too. He started that season so well, and then faded away.

Thought the same again when we signed the Yak as well.

Only Lukaku has been the real deal for us since the 80s.

Yeah, possibly you're right.

It was a shame AJ earned that unwarranted reputation towards the end with us. Think that hurt his confidence a fair bit.

Good player that coincides with some great memories.

From what I remember, Wenger labelled him a diver and from then on, referees refused to give us a penalty. I think we got our first pen of the season on the last day at home to Newcastle.

Pretty sure Johnson was clean through and had his legs taken from him at Blackburn and in what was the most obvious penalty decision you'll ever see, the ref didn't give it.

I liked Andy Johnson when he was at Everton, he had great pace and I'll always remember his performance in that Merseyside derby with his "3-0" gesture.

It's a shame that Moyes pretty much tried to convert him into a winger to accommodate Yakubu and we had to sell him in order to bring in Fellaini.

I think that was the following season when we had Yakubu.

Was at that game in that horrendous away stand, steep as fuck, ref was a disgrace watched there centre half I think, just kicked Andy right up the arse in the area, Johnsons feet actually left the ground, such was the power of the kick. Couldn't believe it when the ref just waved it away.

Thought Johnson and Yakubu had the makings of a great strikforce, pace and work rate from Johnson and power, guile and deadliness from Yakubu. But Moyes never played two strikers very much with Tim Cahill there.

It was the even cuntier Mourinho that did that.

He apologised later, but the seeds were already sown.

Agreed. I think Moyes ruined him and if we'd have played to his strengths he'd have done better for us. He was a pace player so I'd have used him like Rush for the red shite..

Not controversial one bit mate.

He was a class commentator, brilliant at what he did and in some ways, despite his over exaggeration for Gerrards goal against Olympiakos, I miss his commentary, it's just a shame he was a prize cunt.

Yeah, I remember thinking top 4 would be ours again when we bought AJ. Never quite understood why he spent so much time at Goodison imitating a winger, especially with his crosses being pretty shite. But I'd say Yak was better and quite fantastic for us until his injury. We started played a whole different type of football with the inside passing between him and Pienaar and Arteta and Cahill even got involved. Was a joy to watch.
