Video of the Day: Sunderland vs Everton, March 1983

Sunderland play Everton at Roker Park this evening in a Premier League match which may secure their place in the top division and relegate their fierce rivals Newcastle United at the same time. Considering the extent to which Everton have only just been turning up for matches of late, never mind competing in them, it would appear that Sam Allardyce may be set to work his magic again and pull this club back from the brink, and even in the event of them failing this evening, they would still have another chance on Sunday, when a win in their...

Video of the Day: Leicester City vs Everton, February 1985

There will be something of a party atmosphere at The King Power Stadium on Saturday when Leicester City take to the pitch to play Everton in the Premier League in their first match after having been crowned as champions of the division.

Coupled with this, the considerably smaller amount of football that was broadcast on the television meant that Rush’s name...

On the last Saturday of the 1985/86 First Division, Everton took to the field for their match against Southampton knowing that they needed a win to have any chance of winning the title whatsoever. Liverpool were at Stamford Bridge playing Chelsea, and following a surprise defeat for Everton at Oxford United the week before, a win for the team now managed by Kenny Dalglish would ensure that his first season on management would end in the league title return to Anfield after a year away on the other side of Stanley Park. If Everton won their game, meanwhile, the...

Video of the Day: Watford vs Everton, August 1982

The tangled webs we weave. It is something of a peculiarity of football history that the fortunes of Watford and Everton should have intertwined in the past, but it is a phenomenon exists, at least from the perspective of the Hornets. The club’s first – and to date only – FA Cup final appearance came against them in the 1984 FA Cup final and they share the same music in the form of the title music to the TV show Z-Cars, which is based on the traditional folk song “Johnny Todd”, a traditional folk song strongly associated with the...
