Lineker moved to Barcelona but the loss of their top scorer didn't have an adverse affect on the side because within 12 months, Everton were the champions again.

Dave Watson, Ian Snodin and Paul Power were all drafted in, and The Blues won 10 of their last 12 League games to take the title.

It was a wonderful achievement but things haven't gone quite so well for Everton since.

Howard Kendall was lured abroad to take over at Athletic Bilbao and his more than able right-hand man, Colin Harvey, stepped into the breach.

The Blues finished fourth in Harvey's first season, and reached the semi-finals of the League Cup.

In the summer of 1988 the club transfer record was smashed when Tony Cottee joined from West Ham United for £2.5 million.

Everton ended the campaign at Wembley but the FA Cup Final defeat against Liverpool was secondary to the Hillsborough tragedy a month earlier that united the city in grief.

Tangible success eluded Harvey, and after just two wins in 12 games at start of the 1990-91 season he was relieved of his duties.
