Ahh, so bittersweet watching this again.

What might have been if, you know.

Reidy's lovely mum, Howard's grimly prophetic last line, the cheesy DJ, and Wogan and his crowd all donning Everton scarves, this is both a treat, and an almighty kick in the guts.

That's kind of depressed me. At the beginning it talks of the chasm between us and them and the 15 years it took to win the league again.

It's almost twice as bad now :(

I know, man 😔

Proper missed the boat, didn't we.

The advent of the Sky EPL razzamatazz was only seven years after this resounding league win and near treble, and only five years after our last title success.

Fucking criminal neglicence to not be high up in that food chain.

Lump in my throat and a tear in my eye watching that. We have fallen so far from grace since those days, every player in those teams were winners and would accept nothing other than wins and then you have a look at the over paid scumbags running around Goodison Park now who don’t give a fuck about our club just makes me sick.

Does not show it from a great angle but the volleyed pass from Bracewell around 11 minutes 23 seconds in the video to Trevor Steven against Sunderland is a thing of beauty.

1987(The Decline):

Kendall left - nothing else worked for him

Harvey, manager - didn't come off

Everton - never been the same, since

Nothing But Second Best (Will Do) - Oh for a football team and the demise of a football club

Thanks for the memories - when only the best was good enough....................... ..................it hurts

Great to have a team who believed in the club & the manager & players who could put the ball in the net wasn't it.

Aye....!

Yup,Steven didn't even have to break his stride ,just shrugged off the defender and smashed it in.

The cheesy DJ is Billy Butler, used to do a hilarious show on radio Merseyside on a Sunday morning.

Also related to @Thomas off here if I recall correctly.

That’s the one, him and/or Wally couldn’t speak sometimes they were laughing so much. Best one I can remember was when he asked the woman who phoned in “What was the name of the ship in mutiny on the Bounty?”.
