The Mail Bag

Arteta and Cahill are they legends

Comments (3)

Debate on ToffeeWeb lately has been mind numbingly boring, so here's one to get the blood boiling.

In ten years time will we talk about Arteta and Cahill as we talk about Alan Ball, Sheedy, Sharpe and Labone? Or will we talk about these players as we talk (contentiously) about Latchford, Kanchelskis and McKenzie, great players, awesome individualists but not in a great team or great team players.

Arteta in my mind is already one of the Everton legends; Cahill, well, this season he's on fire and playing better I bet than even he thought he could play ? as well as his manager and I suppose most of the supporters.

Where as Shearer can be a Newcastle legend, I would presume any blue befitting that status needs to win something... and if it’s only 1 trophy, take out a couple of burglars also... And as good as Arteta is, and Cahill... not yet! Best they’ve done is finish 4th and that was a while ago.

You should only put up a statue of someone when they’re dead, and current players can only become legends when they’ve left the field for ever.

Latchford could never replace Dixie, but he did get half-way there one season (a half legend?); and Duncan McKenzie had Gordon Lee to contend with. And, of course, Andrei Kanchelskis is an anagram of "He’s a lad in knickers" - v good player of course, but only passing through.

Its an interesting thought to while away the winter evenings - so, Peter, why are you doing it in New Zealand.
