A selection of mine;
"I have good days and bad days but I've got great people around me - my friends, family and team-mates. Hopefully the boys can do it [win the FA Cup] this year and I'll be back next year and we can do it again."
~ Phil Jagielka
"You never know how long you are going to spend (at a Club) but what I can say is that I can see myself finishing my career at Everton ... I have been in other football Clubs and I’m telling you this is a special one. People say we are a family – we really are."
~ Mikel Arteta
"I was running back to the center circle after I scored the second goal against Liverpool and pure elation welled up inside me. I remember thinking: 'I just love this place - I want this place forever.'"
~ Alan Ball
"Football was never the same for me after I left Everton and although I always wanted to win, losing never really seemed to hurt anymore."
~ Kevin Ratcliffe
"There was nothing like quietening that Kop. When you stuck a goal in there it all went quiet, apart from a bit of choice language aimed in your direction! Scoring there was a delight to me. I just used to turn round to the crowd and bow three times to them."
~ Dixie Dean
"Once Everton has touched you, nothing will be the same."
~ Alan Ball
"I came to Everton to win."
~ Andy Gray
"I made my debut at Goodison against Stoke and was standing in the tunnel waiting to go onto the pitch. Z cars started playing on the PA and I heard the crowd roar. If I could bottle a moment and save it forever, then that would be it."
"I have not been short of invitations to other clubs and have been received more warmly by Everton than I have by Liverpool. It's probably fair to say that they are now 'my' team."
~ Bill Shankly
"Now Zidane, easily outstripped by Gravesen.''
