Everton is the greatest club in the world – Tim Howard

Monday, 10 December, 2018 15comments  |  Jump to last

A nice video of memories from Tim Howard, who tasted brief success at Man Utd before he fell in love with Everton.

The Everton keeper for 10 years from 2006 to 2016 recalls how he needed a change (a quaint way of recalling how Sir Alex Ferguson had dropped him) when he joined, initially on loan, and how welcome he was made to feel.

As well as some fine saves, there's video of his famous wind-assisted goal, scored with a long clearance against Bolton in January 2012. And he recalls with pride the time when he captained the team.

Well in, Mr Tim Howard.

Always welcome home, as far as I am concerned. As he has stated in his own words, an Evertonian. In my opinion, a keeper that we could trust.

Although probably not the best keeper we have ever had, he was very loyal, and generally a safe pair of hands, until the last phase of his tenure, where he became more prone to making errors.

It is nice for him to extol the virtues of the Club and of course the fans with whom he had a rapport. As Peter says, he is welcome back any time.

Hoping that Colorado plays at FC Cincinnati in 2019 or, 2nd choice, at Columbus so I get one last look at Capt America in goal. I will be the one wearing the Everton gear with the FC scarf!

Jersey! New York's shitting ground Greeley! ;0)

I can't believe, seriously can't even believe, that goal was almost seven years ago?

My God... time flies.

I loved Tim Howard. Howard Caught a lot of crap at times on these pages but, as far as I'm concerned, you couldn't ask for a better player in terms of effort. He should always get a warm welcome back, in my opinion.

Just watched the video.

Firstly, a cameo from my all-time fav, Lee Carsley. Beast.

Secondly, the class Howard showed by not celebrating the goal to not show up the other keeper.

Captain America, all hail his name.

Not our best keeper ever but right up there with them and a True Blue. A magnificent servant to the club who will always be loved at Goodison Park by anyone who knows anything about the game and our history.

John @9-

I say:

You say:

Do I detect a backhanded slap, sir?

Jamie. Not at all mate. Just jumped on, saw the article and fired my comment on. Read the other comments afterwards. No slap of any kind handed out buddy.

Howard was a good servant, as was Jagielka, Baines... and now it looks like we should add Coleman to that list. These level of players kept us afloat and even competed with the best sometimes.

However, I will still bang the drum for the club to be associated with winners past and present, although that's still sadly totally alien to the Everton Way. It's still unfair to judge Silva but we hope he proves himself to be and believe in being a winner.

A better keeper than the current holder of the jersey. Great servant and a great lad. Can't remember him costing us 2 derby games in under 12 months – like a certain player currently playing for us.

There'll be a warm welcome for him when he returns home .

Bit of revisionism there Andy. Tim let in so many soft goals over the years eg dropped ball against Blackburn, two howlers against WBA, a few against Man U etc... All goalies make mistakes, especially younger ones, but Tim was making them when he was supposedly in his prime.

I still miss his twitches and beard.

I haven't had the inclination or motivation to write anything for a few months as I feel so disappointed with our results.

But, Tim Howard was class – in every sense of the word. Come on back to coach, Tim – you'd be so welcome. Great keeper, great guy and great Evertonian.
