One of my dad's favourite players, Rob. He used to regale me with tales about that team. He went down to Wembley as a young man. Hitchhiked down from Liverpool with his mates. No tickets but they bunked in. He reckoned it was easy and loads of Evertonians were doing it.

He always added, "But don't you do it, son."

I loved reading this Rob, what an insight to the history of the real people who went before.

Lovely story Rob about good old fashioned people with good old fashioned principles. The way these players of yesterday approached life in such a humble and modest way, no “look at me” style whatsoever, great to read about and you can connect with that way of life, in a way it’s a pity they played in those days, they’d have been millionaires today.

A lovely story which reflects very well on all those who lived in it.
