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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Do I detect a backhanded slap, sir?

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.

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

I still miss his twitches and beard.

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.
