Iíd ask if it was someone completely shite, but as itís the Smith era that wonít really narrow it down!

Hutchinson? Or did he sell him?

Nah he was part of the midfield.

The physio who came on to treat Gazza looked like Steve Hodge from behind. I don't think he became a physio did he?

As is usually the case it's never the answer you think is it, knew it wasn't gonna be an Everton player as it seemed too obvious to say the likes of Unsworth/Ferguson from the off.

Martin Tyler had a great question last week. Aubameyang became the 10th player with 10 or more letters in his surname to score a premier league hat trick. You canít include double barrelled names like Calvert lewin or ones like van Nistlerooy.

I wanted us to sign Dean Holdsworth once. Yes. Thatís how bad we were.

I did take great solace in that in one of the worst periods of our history we still managed to win something while Newcastle, enjoying one of their best, still won nothing.

I think a lot of us wanted to sign Holdsworth around that time. We were desperate for a striker for most of the nineties. We even tried to sign Mark Bright at one point.

Yes, well done!

Inch High Private Eye - a Hanna-Barbera cartoon based on the 1960s US comedy series Get Smart!


The pub I am referring to was once owned/managed by ex-Everton player Gary Jones (mind you, knowing Psycho, there may have been more than one he could have been found in!)

So, what's the link with inchy and the private eye then? Unless he's got a small private eye... is it a euphemism?

The cartoon character was called inch high. Adrian Heath is 5ft 6 so thatís why he was compared to the miniature P.I.

Saw him in the Netley when I was about 8 or 9 after a game. Me dad wanted to take me up to say hello but I was too shy.

There's more to that story, but it's more of a face-to-face sort of deal.

The (Uncle)Albert in Lark Lane, Sefton Park/Aigburth Road

You are also right, though! Black George's in Toxteth, run by the Ungi (gangster)family, was another pub frequented by Pat!

To us fans he was known as Pycho, but what nickname did the players give him?
