The 100 Greatest Everton Moments– We’ve all got our favourite Everton moment, no matter how old we are, be it watching Bob Latchford score his 30th goal of the season in 1978, or Duncan Ferguson scoring his header against Manchester United in 2005, or even just the emergence of yet another great youth talent from the Everton Academy. In “The 100 Greatest Everton Moments” we have tried to capture, as the title suggests, 100 of the best Everton memories.
We’ve gone back to the very beginning of the Evertonian journey, and delved deep into the historical records to look back at some of the moments that many of us won’t have lived to see, and brought it right up to date to capture, forever, the feelings of a new generation of Evertonians as the club gives us our own “greatest moments” to tell our grandchildren about.
From George Mahon saying “no” to John Houlding, to Yakubu scoring his 21st goal of the 2007-08 season, we have captured “The 100 Greatest Everton Moments” and put them all together to relive and remember whenever you pick up the book.
WIth personal memories from former players such as Tony Kay, Howard Kendall, Colin Harvey, and Derek Mountfield, and a foreword by the Liverpool Echo’s Everton reporter, David Prentice, the book offers not only an historical reference of the greatest Everton moments in history, but also an insight into the personal reflections of some of Everton’s greatest players.
Cup Final Blues is a look back at Everton’s successful trips to Wembley, and talks to the players and managers who made the FA Cup successes possible.
Everton and the FA Cup go hand in hand. Ever since the Blues first entered the world’s most famous cup competition in disastrous fashion, the passion and the drama of the FA Cup gripped Evertonians and they became forever entwined in a love-affair that would last as long as they both did. Everton have won the cup five times, and appeared in more semi-finals than most other clubs in the football league, and whenever the Blues go on a cup run the fans embrace it like no others. This book combines a history of Everton in the FA Cup with interviews with the men who made that history.
