Next Match:

Arsenal (A) Sun 1 Mar 2015, 14:05, Barclays Premier League

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Evertonians have been singing the praises of players past and present in answer to our most recent Question of the Week.

We asked supporters to tell us who they believe to be the ultimate Everton cult hero – and a wide range of suggestions came flooding in on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

With the likes of Dixie Dean, Alan Ball, Neville Southall and Duncan Ferguson labelled as Everton greats or Club legends, a cult hero is defined as an individual that is adored outside of the mainstream for either unconventional reasons or for a specific moment.

Below are some of your nominations…

[TW]Benn Hughes ‏@Bennhughes08
@Everton Graham Stuart for his two goals versus Wimbledon to keep us in the Premier League! #efcqotw[/TW]

[TW]Dave AKA Silas @AchmedtheDad
@Everton Barry Horne - not a particularly illustrious career but his goal kept us in the league and as such he is fondly remembered. #efcqotw[/TW]

[FB]John Clarke
The mad dog that is Tommy Gravesen. A good player and a nutter to boot![/FB]

[TW]Simon Ingle @simon_ingle
@Everton #efcqotw Daniel Amokachi - you know the match :)[/TW]

[TW]Stve @stve582
#efcqotw Andy King - in those dark days, he kept us in the top flight![/TW]

[FB]Fred Shortall
Unsung hero John Bailey. 100% every time.[/FB]

[TW]Matt Swift ‏@swiftacoustics
@Everton #efcqotw My cult hero has to be Gary Ablett. Not only a solid player but also a gent, and battled bravely before he died. RIP.[/TW]

[TW]Peter Smith @AlBuga
@Everton #efcqotw Has to be Mike Lyons - played his heart out in any position and was Everton to his core[/TW]

[FB]Lee Santamera
Andrei Kanchelskis. 18th November 1995 :)[/FB]

[TW]Johnny H @JohnnyHBauer
@Everton Has to be Hibbert. A true pro who never gives less than 110% without shooting his mouth off but got a riot after scoring. #efcqotw[/TW]

[TW]John Coyne ‏@mrjohncoyne
#efcqotw Alan Harper. Often the fall guy with a fully-fit squad. Never moaned and always popped up with a goal when it mattered most! #EFC[/TW]
