If you haven't read Tim's autobiography (self-effacingly entitled "Legend"), then you should.

Interesting he talks about Moyes getting the "right character" with players. That's something Brands went on about but whether it was his fault, the manager's, Bill's or the owner's we seemed to fail in that respect with the likes of James "Who are we playing?" and bums like Tosun.

Good stuff, thanks Lyndon. I completely forgot that Keijan sponsorship. And damn what a dynamo Tim and Mikel formed back then. Tim seems to be in a good place, I hope he will kick on with us.

Great piece. Lyndon, thanks for posting that link.

I cannot WAIT for Timmy to be a part of this club again. I'd really like to see him on the Board -- boxing a few ears in meetings -- but I'll take whatever he can manage on his busy schedule.

Thanks for the link made for great reading..

Thing that has been missing at Everton for a long time – players who have self-pride, commitment, and a hunger to be the best..

Let's hope the new manager brings in the right characters. Dele Alli is a gamble that may or may not pay off.

I really hope Tim comes on board in whatever capacity, he will bring that professional winning mentality...

Jon - His autobiography is called 'Legacy'. It's a good read.

I have mixed feelings about Cahill now. He was fantastic for Everton and for the Socceroos. Had a great attitude, work ethic and produced the goods time and again.

However, ironically it's his "legacy" that I have more of an issue with. He has been a big supporter of the very questionable Qatar World Cup bid and has worked for Qatar FA. He's done a bit of charity work but mostly everything he does seems to be commercial.

Frank (#7);

I think you'll find it is something nearly all Aussies have, a desire to know how good they are, how far they can go and they settle when they get the answer but they rarely settle for a comfortable seat warming role.

As our American friends say, "Whatever it takes" but amongst all of that, Aussies can appear to have a laid-back attitude with it.

"David Moyes knew how to set up a defence...". Let's hope that Frank is the next one who actually can, unlike the last five.
