He was a pretty good goalkeeper most of the time and loves the blues to bits. He'll always be a good ambassador for our club, I have no doubts. A great servant to our club for many years. Enjoy your retirement Tim.

Howard for manager!

Wait, what? We aren’t just picking random ex-players and thinking they’ll be an amazing managerial appointment based on nothing at all?

Properly wound me up towards the end of his time here, don't if the world cup got to his head or what but he was so bad Joel and Stekelenburg seemed like viable alternatives.

Seems sound though and did well for us most of the time.

Never really rated him and he overstayed his welcome in my opinion. At the end of his time here ,Robles was the better option and that's saying something .Having said all that he definitely 'got us' .
The club should have made much more of the USA connection with him and Landon playing for us .   
We are special ,we are Everton.

Very good most of the time but was garbage at the end. Good guy and good Evertonian.

Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Stayed here far too long in my opinion.

Massively over rated keeper.

I hold Martyn in higher regard.

Him getting a massive send off whilst Osman and Hibbert were silently shuffled off stage was shameful and peak Martinez (even though he’d been sacked a few day before).

What a joke.
Didn't need to give Tim Howard the job - he's been an ambassador for the club for years for free.
Waste of money.

Thought that whole USA day thing that they did was pretty cringe when two players that had only ever served Everton and had over 600 appearances between them were left to leave through the side door. Not Howard's fault though, he'd made the decision to leave, whereas we don't seem able to make decisions like that and just leave players hanging. That part of Everton still hasn't changed, they did the same with Jags, "here you go, you'll guess what this means, have the last few minutes of the game even though we've not actually had the decency to confirm to you whether you're staying or not". Baines is similar, he got a deal but even as the final whistle went he didn't know whether he was staying or not. It's not a great way to treat long serving players.

Osman and Hibbert were treated appallingly in the end, both weren't told they would be released

Osman and especially Hibbert were lucky to have the careers they did.
