Comings and Goings

Alasdair Jones
The theme of this article is the transfer dealings of the two managers that succeeded Harry Catterick, and whose objective would be to rebuild the team and ultimately create a Championship-winning side. How did Billy Bingham and then Gordon Lee fare in comparison to the “shrewd operator”?

Decline and Fall

Alasdair Jones
Everton's fall from grace after winning the Football League Championship in 1970 is something that rankled with me as it unfolded in the early '70s. Writing a few weeks back about the 1970 Championship win (Our Golden Anniversary) reignited my need to try and get a handle on why it all came about.

Our Golden Anniversary

Alasdair Jones
1 April 2020 marked the Golden Anniversary of Everton securing the First Division Championship trophy in that most memorable 1969-70 season.

With the high expectations that attach to expensive incoming players, and the frustration amongst many about the reluctance to use young players, I am prompted recall how the club performed in relation to these matters during my earlier years as a Blues supporter. This led me to consider the way in which previous teams were assembled. How successful or otherwise was Harry Catterick in the 1960s in his quest to rejuvenate and remodel his Championship team of 1963?

Bus and Boat Return

As a bit of light relief, given our present travails, and with an eye to nostalgia, I thought I would pen and submit this short article.
