Stories of the Era

The arrival of former striker Joe Royle as Walker's replacement was the catalyst for a tremendous revival that ended in FA Cup glory at Wembley.

Royle's effect was instant.

Everton defeated Liverpool 2-0 at Goodison in his first match and from the moment that Duncan Ferguson, on loan from Glasgow Rangers, powered home a header for the opening goal, a love affair between the big Scot and the Everton fans was launched.

Ferguson's move was swiftly made permanent and, from an almost hopeless position at the foot of the table, Everton finished 15th in the table.

But it was the FA Cup that provided the more abiding memories.

The 4-1 semi-final win over Tottenham at Elland Road is widely regarded as the most compelling Everton performance of the 90s, with Daniel Amokachi, a Nigerian international etching himself into Goodison folklore with two late goals after coming on as a substitute.

The final hero was Paul Rideout, who headed the only goal of the match to bring the FA Cup back to Goodison for the fifth time.

The defence of the Cup ended at lowly Port Vale the following season, but the most consistent league campaign for years left Everton in a Premiership finishing position of sixth - agonisingly close to a UEFA Cup qualification position.
