On keeper stand-ins, I'm going to go back to one of the great Goodison nights when we won the first ever European Cup penalty shootout against Borussia Moenchengladbach in November 1970.

Gordon West had a meltdown in the first round against the Icelandic champions and Andy Rankin, a decent keeper who had been the Number 2 for about the last 6 years, was brought in to give West some time away.

He didn't have too much to do in that game whilst the Borussia keeper was brilliant. Not used to shootouts we (of course ,being Evertonians) went into the penalties with huge trepidation, not helped when Royle missed the first. They missed their second and it ended up with Rankin saving their fifth penalty to win the game.

I'm sure there are many on ToffeeWeb who still remember that game and probably Rankin's greatest moment with us. For those who have not seen it, it is available on YouTube (with German commentary😂).

It's also one of the few games still available where you can see the Holy Trinity of Ball, Kendall, Harvey still in full flow. Watch Ball telling big Joe to keep his chin up after his missed penalty.

Great memories👏👏👏

I was too young to remember Rankin's finest hour, the 1964 derby at Anfield, although I was in the kop boys pen and my older St Theresa boxing-trained brother kept me safe when whittle got the second as he jabbed the head off a few.

Rankin to me broke my heart, let us down in the 1971 FA Cup Semi-Final at Old Trafford. Winning one-nil, then collapsing – albeit the deciding factor was Labone going off as, until then, Toshack never got a look in.

Then the Greeks European Cup second leg... Cue 14 years of near-miss glory, Bob Latchford and Clive Thomas... You know the rest.

Yep, could have done with West back for that Old Trafford semi-final in 71. If he and his big mate Labby had both played and lasted the full 90 minutes, we might have been looking at a completely different history since that game.

Not least, winning a cup final against Arsenal, the least deserving League and Cup double winners ever.

Never changes when a blue gets capped for England. Doesn't end well.

Mexico 1970: four or five came back drained.

Lost Lineker, Rooney etc. The list goes on.

Reid was injured for months after the '86 World Cup, chasing after Maradona.
