How many of these almost-forgotten ex-Everton players can you remember?

Everton F.C. are a club of rich history and tradition. The Toffees have been in the top flight of English football continuously since the 1955/55 season. In total, they have competed at that level in 114 seasons of football – that’s one more than David Weir. Astonishing, really.

However, the blues’ time in the Premier League hasn’t all been smiles. They have nearly been relegated twice: in 1994 and 1998, they beat the odds to stay up on the final day of the season.

David Moyes’ time as boss between 2002 and 2013 was the beginning of a new era, as he (mostly) kept them challenging for European football despite operating on a shoestring budget.

And whatever happened to David Moyes, eh? If you know the answer to that one, and if you can tell your Arouna Koné from your Mo Bešić, you might want to take a gander at our Everton ‘lost’ XI quiz. Good luck…
