Players in the Shade

We all started being an Evertonain at some point. For me it was when I was 7 or 8 years old in the mid-80s. My Dad was an Evertonian, like his father before him, so I was already a Blue. But it was my Uncle whom turned up one evening in September and took me to my first game.

But that wasn't 'my time' as a Blue. My era was the 1990s. I started not needing my Uncle to take me, and it became a must that, whenever we played at home, I had to be there.

We had some good players then, and some poor ones too. And we had the idols also, like Big Dunc.

I'd love to listen from all you Blues new and old, on the player you loved who didn't fall in to the Idol/Big name category. The guilty pleasure, if you like.

For me back then, it was Big Joe Parkinson. Don't know why, but I just thought he was the business. A 'Dog of War' more then part of the Holy Trinity, but to me, special all the same.
