There’s nothing quite like the first day of a new season!
Everton welcome Chelsea to Goodison Park tomorrow evening for the Premier League opener and ,as part of our build up, we bring you an Official Everton Podcast looking back at some of our opening-day fixtures over the years.
Host Darren Griffiths is again in the company of David Prentice and Gavin Buckland and among their memories are Tony Cottee’s hat-trick, Gary Speed’s debut goal, an Andy King winner against Chelsea, John Hurst getting a title-winning season off to a flyer… And Gary Lineker enduring a miserable start to his Everton career at Leicester City!
Also, the afternoon that David Moyes gave debuts to an England goalkeeper, a Brazilian, a Chinese international and a 16-year-old who had just left school!
With the usual plethora of facts and figures, some personal anecdotes and some vintage commentary clips, this is a great way to start your new Premier League weekend.
