One of those players that you knew could have made more of an impact, if they had stayed longer - can remember being properly excited when he signed, as I thought the combination of him and John Collins was going to be special.

I remember the day have signed clearly. I was working in a phone shop for the summer, went and got my morning paper, there was an article in there - not very big - that we were interested and by the afternoon he’d signed

One of the best players we ever sold - easy to forget how miserable that era was.

It was a bit Walsh Koeman, wasn’t it, with a fair bit of money spent, but poor management, and pretty dreadful football.

Didn't we sign Dacourt and Materazzi around the same time? I remember them coming in and thinking that we were going to be worldbeaters.

If only our business this summer could be so efficient.

I sometimes miss the good old days when the only outlets were either the newspapers, radio/tv news or checking Ceefax for updates, no stupid yellow ties or banners anywhere.

Thought the mix of players was ok. Problem was we needed 16 players :)

The mix was far better than Walsh and Koeman’s brew, but the tactical approach was dire.

Yes a lot was made of then having to sell Dunc about a month later but surely the rest of the squad was ok?

As was seen when we signed Campbell we were suddenly ok again, and were the next season.

Instant success in our midfield if I remember the reports. Something we desperately need now. Used to love this type of signing and was gutted when he left after a season.

Had a contract. Could've stayed if he really wanted to.

I remember being at the opener against Villa that season and thinking we were going to be amazing.  Then sat through an horrendously dull 0-0 and things only got worse from there.  I think that was possibly the most toothless and boring Everton team ever that season, really hard to watch.
