It was just last decade when Moyes was here. And he got us fourth and pretty much kept us in the top third of the league when we didn't have any money after he'd inherited a squad that looked doomed to relegation. And he picked up, what was it, three manager of the year awards.

We all know he's shown his limitations since. But what so many of us forget is how well his strengths as a manager served the club during a perilous time. I'm not sure there was another manager in the world who could have done as well for Everton in that period of our history, when we were skint and so many other Prem teams were on buying sprees.

Even with no money, he built a fine squad foundation that his two deranged successors still haven't completely undone.
