Andy, Paul and Lyndon ask whether the history of the Anfield derby has made Evertonians completely numb in the lead-up to the game?

They discuss the "secret" independent commission into Everton's financial breaches, 777 Partners and the proposed takeover, and laud the excellent BBC Sounds pod series covering last season at Goodison Park.

Finally, the fellas pick one player they'd bring back from the Blues' Premier League past to play for Saturday against Liverpool.

Remember that game vividly. Kanchelskis tore them a new one, what an absolute dynamic player we had. Shame he didn't stay long.

The BBC podcast was excellent.

Really impressed with how Thelwell spoke. We've heard Dyche over the years, so we know what we are getting, but it's the first time I've heard Thelwell speak at such length.

The guy is operating with next to no money, he's definitely improved the first team, and doing it all with all the off-field shenanigans making his job even harder.

I hope we get to see him operating with some decent finance to work with, as I really think he could do some good long-term.

Just not wasting the money they had in January on a striker that wouldn't be good enough, shows he and Dyche are not thinking short term like others before them.

I believe these two can bring the stability needed while we navigate the choppy waters of the commission, the ground funding and takeover.

I completely agree. If fans listen to only one of the ten podcasts, they should make it Episode 8, the interview with Thelwell.

I don't think we've had better than Kanchelskis, and Beardsley, since the mid 80's

If I think the genuine quality players we've had since the the 90s are few and far between.

Beardsley, Kanchelskis, Stones and Rooney.

Maybe not everyone's choice, but I might add Limpar to that. Possibly a fit and firing Louis Saha?

I think you could add Cahill, Arteta, Lukaku, Baines & Richarlison to your very slim list.

I also think in time, we may be adding Branthwaite who I believe may be better defensively than Stones was at his age.

If only Thelwell had the Steve Walsh money to work with!!!

He seems genuinely interested in getting the club back to where we belong, not just here for the wages.
