Now here is a good one for ToffeeWebbers.
Until last Saturday, Moise Kean held a unique record for Everton.
However, he then lost it but gained another one on Tuesday night.

And with regard to him being wrong.

He was the first player born this millennium to play for us in the Premier League.
He lost that unique record against West Ham when Anthony Gordon came on at Half Time.
He then gained the unique record of being the first Everton player born this Millennium to score for the First Team.
And if pedants like Dennis Stevens don't like it - how about the first player whose year of birth begins with a "2".

Youd be right if we were simply counting numbers, but were not. 1980 was in the 80s, 2000 is in the 2000s. Its pretty simple really. Its the cultural significance that provides meaning.

According to the Gregorian calendar, 1980 would be the last year of the decade 1971-1980 & 2000 would be the last year of the millennium 1001-2000, that's how it works. However, you can put the years wherever you want, that's fine, it's all made up anyway. As, I stated above, "these things have have whatever significance individuals wish to place upon them", be that cultural or otherwise.
