Who don't I like, Tim? If he can translate his passion to the players he coaches And gets some luck, who knows how far he can go.
I'm not a big fan of automatically having ex-Blues as coaches because they played for us, but I think you'll see him at a World Cup managing Australia.

Good article. Nothing but respect for Tim Cahill, I wish him well in his coaching career.

Absolute steal for around £1.5M.

Good article, and hopefully Benitez is bringing the same standard of professionalism to Everton as a manager, that Phil Neville brought to the club as a player.

Good read, thanks for the link Lyndon.

Never knew his dad was English and a West Ham fan. I wonder how he felt when Tim signed for Millwall!

He's a good example of why us fans should sometimes refrain from judging a player until we see them play for Everton. If the memory serves, I recall at the time concerns that we were losing Rooney and competing with Palace for a bargain buy who also had potential knee problems? Don't quote me on the last bit, but I do seem to remember something.

Fast forward summer 2021 and we sign a player who failed to make the grade at Leicester for £1.5M. Time will tell, but on Saturday, the fans couldn't stop singing his name.

I like the bit about ingredients. You don't need or want 11 Messis in a team to make a good or great team. You need a mix.

Good he calls out Neville's influence. I always said it wasn't about his footballing ability. In that Everton team, whenever he didn't play, you could tell that his presence and influence was missed.

Another reminder to us Evertonians of the importance players from other nations place on representing their country.

I hope you do well Tim. You have the spirit and the desire and showed that as a player.

Final one and can't resist. His description of Lee Carsely being the shield but knowing how to transition into attack. Maybe we re-label Allan the Brazilian Lee Carsely?

What a player, what a heart he had. He give a great insight into Moysie and the work he did getting the best out of every player. He also gives us a picture of his own drive and ambition to be a footballer of class.

Infectious enthusiasm and deadly finishing in the air and on the ground. What a player and what a character. He's really intelligent as well and will make a good manager... hopefully ours one day!

Didn't our kit look great where Mickey and himself were having a natter, classy.
