In this piece by By Chris Evans for The Set Pieces, Carlo Nash, who watched the 2009 FA Cup final from the Everton bench explains how No 2 keepers deal with not playing.“I was lucky enough to be part of two cup finals,” says Nash. “I didn't play in either final, but I was on the bench. I did feel part of it, but there's a little point in your head when you think: ‘I wish I was playing.' Although it was great to be part of the occasion. You do get used to that, when there's only one shirt up for grabs, but there's not really much you can do other than prepare right in case you're needed. I always prepared as though I was playing; maybe the guy who's in front of you gets a little bit more work in the warm-up, but I always tried to do the work I needed as if I was starting.”

I really wanted Pat Jennings to have worn an Everton kit competitively what a fine goalkeeper and gentleman.
