often do you hear people say it's not the same game any more, or that
player's nowadays aren't a patch on yesterday's stars? Here, then, is a book
that rekindles the magic of football's past, presenting a history of Everton
FC as seen through the eyes of the men who made it happen – the players.
But more than that, it also gives Everton fans the chance to discover what their favourite players have been doing since they left the club. It is often said that former Everton players have more affection for their club than other ex-pros, and this book shows just how high the regard for the club is from those who helped shape its past.
Co-authors Jon Berman and Malcolm Dome have scoured the world to talk to some of the most popular players ever to pull on the famous blue jersey. They find out which former player is arranging funerals these days, and which legend's son once played in the same team as a current Everton hero. They have even found that one ex-manager is better remembered by the players rather than the fans!
Berman and Dome have spoken to dozens of players, who recall their memories – amusing, embarrassing and touching – of their time at Goodison Park, spilling the beans on what happened to them when the crowds stopped roaring.
