Snapshot: Jackson & Parky
Duo discuss the years after the '95 Cup win and Monday's trip to Wigan.
Earlier this season evertonfc.com spoke to Anders Limpar about Everton's stunning FA Cup win in 1995.
We followed it up by asking Andrei Kanchelskis about his decision to join the Club which had just lifted the most famous domestic trophy in the world.
To continue the story further, we sat down with former Toffees stars Joe Parkinson and Matt Jackson to discuss the pressure of being Cup winners, playing in Europe and why Joe Royle's Dogs of War never hit the heights many had predicted.

What links them to Wigan?
Matt Jackson [Back row, second from right] - Jackson made 165 for Everton between 1991 and 1996. He later joined Wigan, where he made 171 outings in a six-year spell, helping the Latics gain promotion to the Premier League.
Joe Parkinson [Back row, furthest right] - Joining Everton from Bournemouth in August 1994, 'Parky' went on to make 107 appearances for the Blues. But Joe started his career at Wigan, where he made 119 outings between 1989 and 1993.
Joe Royle [Front row, centre] - When manager Chris Hutchings left Wigan in November 2007, Royle was strongly rumoured to be on the shortlist to replace him. Royle pulled out of the running however and the role eventually went to Steve Bruce.
Duncan Ferguson [Front row, second from right] - In the 2005/06 campaign, 'Big Dunc' equalled Patrick Vieira's record for Premier League sendings off [eight] following confrontations with Wigan duo Paul Scharner and Pascal Chimbonda.
David Unsworth [Front row, furthest right] - On the final day of the 2006/07 season Unsworth netted the Wigan penalty which ultimately relegated Sheffield United back to the Championship. The irony? The defender had left the Blades to make the move to the JJB just four months before. Current Everton stars Phil Jagielka [Sheffield United] and Leighton Baines [Wigan] also featured that day.
