The only time I ever remember seeing the referee clap after a goal was for us scoring in that era .Don't remember the game but the ref was called Kevin ------- if my memory serves me .

1)Pat Jennings - should have signed him to replace Gordon West

2)Colin Todd - should have signed him when Tommy Wright retired

3)Keith Newton - brilliant for Blackburn before he signed for us; brilliant for England in the 1970 World Cup; brilliant for Burnley after they signed him from us; not so brilliant for us

4)Eric Dier - ideal alongside John Stones

5)John Stones - ideal alongside Eric Dier

6)Tony Kay - would have made the 1966 World Cup squad, if not the team

7)Steve McMahon - our youngest ever captain until a few weeks ago; I wonder if Tom Davies will win as many England caps?

8)Gareth Barry - signed ten years too late

9)Peter Beardsley - should have signed him in '85 instead of Lineker. No, as well as Lineker!

10)Wayne Rooney - by a street, by a mile, by about 400 games and by about 200 goals

11)Landon Donovan - should have been permanent

Subs:

12)Nigel Martyn - should have signed him to replace Big Nev

13)Archie Gemmill - the one that got away!

14)Ross Barkley - the one that didn't!!

15)Billy Kenny Jr - if only...............


Good post although it seems you can't count to one ,until I read  Landon Donovan .

Should keep the Eric Dier haters happy!

The pat jennings shout.  I remember it caused murder  on quiz night.  Who is evertons most capped player the master asked.  Pat jennings the master gave as the answer,  coz he got his millionth or summit cap for NI while nevs back up.

Yep - 1986 World Cup, aged 41

Special mention: Bobby Collins

Slipped through the net after signing him as a teenager, then we bought him too late and then sold him too soon (work that out!)

Should have been one of our one club greats - great he was and greater in his hey day

What could have been - the goal against Utd was a lovely goal, However, he took another path.

Latch comes under "Who we had playing for us in their hey day"

Was his one season for us, the hey day for Lineker?

When was Gascoigne's hey day, before or after the 1991 FA Cup Final?

Gazza without a doubt, by far the best English midfielder of his generation. And he is what we need in our current side
