You could pen Pienaar in with three opposing players to the touchline and his close control skill would see him either escape, pass to another Everton player, or draw a foul.  Technically, just a cracking player.

One of my favourite players. Was gutted when we lost him to Spurs and he never came back the same player.

That goal against Arsenal was golden. One of my favourite Everton goals.

Often see people say that he wasnít the same when he came back.

But I think thatís partly the natural thing where you donít remember the mundane from the previous time and also partly because it seemed most obvious that our up turn in form from jan 11 was due to Jelavic.

But on an individual level he actually scored a few goals in the second half of 11/12 (including one in beating Chelsea).

And on a team level we also went from being painfully turgid to watch to almost instantly being a team that played good football again (see him being cup tied for the Lípool semi as an impact the other way).

Itís also no coincidence that we havenít really played that much good stuff after the point where he got injured towards the end of 13/14 either.

Loved him hated his fucking nickname
Used to sit front row of the Family Enclosure he always had a smile and a wave for the kids, some of the work with Baines I saw close up was nothing short of mesmerising.
It's the roll I way

A bargain buy in stark contrast to our transfer activity these days.

Great little player. Him, Osman, Arteta and Baines were brilliant to watch together when they were on song.

But we never played any good football under Moyes. Ever. Never. Especially not for that goal at the Park End against Fulham - the players were trying to hoof it but accidentally passed it.

Deserved to win something that little generation of blues.

The 09 final was the moment. Win that and i genuinely think we would have kicked on.

Brilliant player, loads of memories, one that sticks out was when he fixed the South Africa flag after he scored at the Park End, said afterwards it was upside down

Loved him, hated his shots at goal.

An incredible player, one of my favorites during my time watching Everton.

His understanding with everyone else was almost telepathic, the left hand sided trio of Him, Osman and Baines with Areta also in the mix was just a joy to watch.

Don't think we will see the likes of that again, it was seamless at times.

Superb player and hopefully @Cozzie last point will be wrong and we will see that kind of play again soon (This will be aided by getting rid of Steptoe and Son, by appointing a good manager and DOF).
