Wondered which players everyone looks back on as best late-career signings? Thereís been a few which made little or no difference (Gazza, Ginola) but some which gave more than expected.

My choices:

Nigel Martyn
Richard Gough
Peter Beardsley
Toffeegirls Rule.

I'd have said Gareth Barry but we sold him three years ago and he's still going lolol
Finally found the thread where I said Deulofeu wasn't all that.

We will see in a few years where he is at. I'm betting he'll be at a worse club than Everton rather than at Barcelona.

Currently at Watford.

I think he counts! We donít strictly have to be their last club. Good shout Gazza Bazza.

Ray Wilson was 29 when we signed him - two years later he picked up a World Cup winners medal!

Peter Reid. Failed a medical and was believed to be completely finished as a player when Howard Kendall signed him. Went on to be an integral part of a squad that won the FA cup, then league and Cup Winners Cup the following year and were runners up in the FA cup the same year. Then went on to finally win international caps, playing in a World Cup tournament in Mexico. Not bad for a veteran journeyman midfelder, who was finished a couple of years earlier.

Can't really look much further than Reid and Gray for the best. But there have been some other good ones not in their league.

Distin. Power.

I was gutted the Rooney experiment never saw more results, but still, that goal....

Beardsley had a touch of genius about him at times, but Richard Gough for me. What a player.
