November 1990 and December 1993-1994
Assuming the role of caretaker manager twice during his time at Everton, reserve-team coach Jimmy Gabriel demonstrated stout dedication and loyalty in two unenviable and essentially untenable positions.
His first stretch as manager, between Colin Harvey and Howard Kendall, saw Gabriel managing the team through only one match, a solid if uninspiring victory over QPR. The second period as manager, between Kendall and Mike Walker, saw Gabriel managing a disconsolate team through seven games, managing to acquire only one point and scoring a sub-standard two goals.
In control too short a time to have any real affect, blame for a difficult and disappointing period for the club can hardly be attached to a man who proved himself to be both willing and dedicated.
