At right back, Maicon’s my starter with Abel Xavier backing him up. Weir will be 34 in May and I think if I did carry this save on I’d be looking to splash out on another first team centre back to partner Rio Ferdinand, keeping Unsworth and Dunne as backup players. I had predicted seeing our old friend Nakata in the starting XI, which he was, but what I didn’t expect to see was Roque Santa Cruz leading the line for Barcelona ahead of the likes of Patrick Kluivert and Luis Enrique. Arsenal were still just 2 points behind us after beating West Ham, but with only bottom-half teams to play in our final 4 games, we shouldn’t be dropping any points now. In 22 matches!! Again, thank fuck. Now let’s go play pissing United again. After an injury-hit first season in blue, I’m hoping Maicon kicks on this year. How do we go through all this and then not even allow Bayern Munich a shot on target? I don’t know if it’s specific to this particular database, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen this before. I’m so happy that he’s redeemed himself for a quiet couple of years before I wrapped this save up. Riquelme managed over twice as many assists as he’d managed in any of the previous 3 seasons, while David Beckham improved pretty well for both goals and assists. 46 goals and 13 assists in 51 appearances for us is obscene. Some of these players are going to start to go downhill in the next year or two. Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Back on top of the table, Man U and Leeds lagging behind, Vieri blitzing the league’s top goalscorer table… You must be made up!” You all cry in unison. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. We started with a trip to Munich…. The main reason for this has been the injuries.

Except I didn’t have to. During the 1999–2000 English football season, Everton competed in the FA Premier League. Thank fuck we’ve managed to get Torricelli fit again is all I’ll say. Only Craig bloody Bellamy. We brought through a few youth players and we never ever stopped fighting. We’ll be going to Wembley to face off against Manchester United to see if we can retain the Worthington Cup. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. Everyone, meet Tony. It remained 1-1 for about 30 seconds until United won a soft free kick on the edge of our box and Giggs curled it in. Then just a minute after Vieri levelled the scores, Overmars unlevelled them again. I mean, they’re usually overpowered anyway, but this is daft. They lead for most of the match and things got more tricky when Fabián Zapata went in 2 footed on his man and received his marching orders. So that’s it. They won the competition last year so I’m happy enough with 1-2 and 1-1 results against them. So that was the league wrapped up. As I’ve said before, we press relentlessly and play at a breakneck pace, so of course as the season goes on we’ll pick up some muscle injuries through accumulated fatigue. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. Doesn’t affect us much though, so let’s finally talk about all the stuff we talk about at the end of the season. For our second signing, I wanted to bolster the midfield after losing both Mark Pembridge and Scott Gemmill on free transfers to Krasnodar and Spurs respectively. Everton Season, 2000-01 . Everton Programmes, 1999-2000 Everton Programmes, 1998-99. I’ve been pretty annoyed with our FA Cup draws so far, although I guess it’s good to get some big hitters out of the way early. Oh April. The legendary centre back did bag a debut goal against us, but it was a mere consolation as we steamrolled the Yorkshiremen. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. .mw-parser-output .nogrid,.mw-parser-output .nogrid td,.mw-parser-output .nogrid tr,.mw-parser-output .nogrid th{border:0} 4 more years!”. I’ve also changed some squad numbers around – Tomasz Radzinski’s been wearing number 38 for 3 and a half years but he’s finally taken Campbell’s number 9, Riquelme’s worn 30 for 2 and a half years but also gets a first team squad number – 11. Craig comes with a wealth of benefits for this squad and I’m happy to have him. Fuck me, I’ve written 1600 words. We’ve played them so often during this save and no matter how much quality we bring in, they nearly always seem to have just enough to see us off. A lot has happened since February, even more so than usual, so before I reveal how we did, I’d like to actually give you a play by play of the last 4 months, which I hope will explain my decision. This episode might end with us lifting 5 trophies, while the crowd chants “4 more years! Plus, how good would it feel if he helped us knock Leeds out of a cup? If we could get a point away at Liverpool, the Premier League title should be ours. To cleanse the palette, we went back to Goodison to prepare for the visit of our main title rivals.

Oh, just a damaged spine. [3] I’m also not bitter. 7 months out and his attributes are looking surprisingly intact. Cech’s place isn’t guaranteed forever though, as young Colombian Julián Rivera had a really impressive season on loan at Bournemouth in the First Divison last year, conceding just 28 goals in 46 games as the Cherries won promotion. My giddy Aunt, Christian Vieri, what are you? We had a friendly a week before the big game to make sure the first team weren’t getting rusty after their little break, then we headed over to Budapest. As I say, they were lucky. The damaged cruciates he suffered at the end of October could in theory end his season, although I hope not. May 19, 2019 - Explore bgrassandefc200's board "Everton 1999-2000" on Pinterest. We fought back, but were pegged back again by the dominant home side. Let’s hope this one’s a good one, just in case. On the Mend; Girl Talk; Millenium Giants: Football Postal Cover – Last home match of the Millennium. We’d rotated a little bit throughout April, but most first teamers had played in all of those games. Everton Programmes, 2000-01 . Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. Manager Walter Smith, determined to save his job and preserve Everton's top flight status, pulled off one of the biggest transfer surprises of the close season by bringing in Paul Gascoigne and bolstering one of the most ungainly squads currently in the Premiership. Then we immediately went back to Old Trafford for a Champions League Quarter Final first leg. It meant we could afford at least a small slip up in the league. The Champions League Final was a big one for me. They’ve formed a good partnership in the middle which I hope will pay dividends this season. Pablo’s beginning to question his future, which is bad news. In the 116th minute, as my mouse cursor hovered over the “Quick Substitution” button, Franny Jeffers tore down the right wing, crossed to the near post and Vieri arrived to poke in goal number 46.

Because these tournaments use modern day rules, I still had 2 substitutes remaining. We’ve tied Mustapha Riga and Nick Barmby to new deals that’ll keep them with us for another couple of years beyond the Summer but we are going to be saying goodbye to Leon Osman at the end of the season as he’s agreed a free transfer to Rangers.

I genuinely don’t know if we have what it takes to see off United. Manager Walter Smith, determined to save his job and preserve Everton's top flight status, pulled off one of the biggest transfer surprises of the close season by bringing in Paul Gascoigne and bolstering one of the most ungainly squads currently in the Premiership. We have shit loads of quality, we have shit loads of depth and in my opinion we should be winning this league. See more ideas about Everton fc, Everton, Kevin campbell. Starting with a crucial Premier League game against United. It’s not like they don’t have good players either, they have the likes of Philipp Lahm, Markus Babbel, Emile Mpenza, Oliver Neuville… Oliver Kahn, for fucks sake. With our place in the Champions League semi-final secured, it was time to head off to Wembley to play Leeds, because this month will never end. In fact we won all of our league games this month, which is extremely pleasing considering that I played reserve teams in most of them to keep the big guns fit for our cup matches. And guess who was deemed fit to resume full training with a week to go before the Champions League Final? He’s a scary bastard, a good leader and a hard tackler and if we had an injury crisis in midfield, I’d be comfortable sticking him in there.
