Answer:

Answer:


1

Thomas. Three waiting on the far post. Dobson is in there. It’s going to fall for ******. Oh yes! He’s got it. ****** has scored and Everton have taken the lead with a typical ****** goal and Goodison Park goes absolutely mad. Would you believe it?

2

Reid, Stevens, looking for ****** and he got behind Lawrenson there did ******. What a fantastic goal! An unbelievable finish from ****** and the Evertonians have gone berserk. I haven’t see a goal quite like that in a Merseyside derby for years.

3

Richardson. Now Alan Harper. ****** joining in and Grobbelaar. Ohhhh! And the gamble has failed.

4

Hinchcliffe with the corner. Everton’s fourth. A goal! ****** – his first for Everton. Oh what a relief for Joe Royle. Hinchcliffe with the corner and the tallest man on the field was first to it.

5

Pejic . . . Dobson . . . Thomas . . . acres of space for him, two men to cross to . . . ****** What a glorious goal!

6

Nachtweil away, Gray goes in, ******! The perfect start to the second half and Everton have recaptured the party mood.

7

Sheffield Wednesday have brought everybody back now. They have 11 men between the ball and their goal. Scott is going to take it. There you see Harris moving up. Scott. ******. A goal! He’s equalised! And two Everton supporters have raced onto the pitch and they are swamping ****** and they are two Everton supporters who will see no more of this game.

SCREEN

TEST

They’re goals you’ve watched over and over again, either on video, DVD or YouTube – but how well do you remember them with only the commentator’s words for company? We’ve given you the words, with the goalscorer’s name blanked out, you have to supply the marksman. Some of the commentaries are iconic, while some fail to do the goals they describe justice – but all of the goals are significant strikes in Everton’s history. So lights, camera, action . . 7

9

This wonderful kick presents ****** with a chance in the goalmouth which he doesn’t miss this time. Congratulations to ******. That was a great goal and it’s worth seeing it again. Britton to ******. ******, ball, goalkeeper all in the net in slow motion.

Everton knocking it around with much more purpose than they were doing. Covering the gaps making it almost impossible for Wednesday to create space . . . and now a great chance! A bad mistake by Gerry Young and it’s ****** and it’s the third goal.

14

And now Richardson, whipping in a good cross and ****** and a goal! His first Cup tie goal of the season and it comes at Wembley.

15

******. Varadi. Lampard’s got it away but up comes Wright, seven minutes left, plenty of Everton players forward. Oh! That’s guided in superbly by ******.

QUESTION 7: Two Everton supporters run onto the pitch, but whose goal were they celebrating?

14

16 17

Steven, hooking in quite a good cross there, ****** and it’s given!

Bracewell. On again for Reid. Well played. Reid’s cross. ******. What a fantastic goal!

18

Sheedy. Gray is onside. Kept onside by Nachtweil and ******. It’s settled now. Rotterdam here they come! Absolute triumph for Howard Kendall and they have done it in the grand manner, coming from behind.

10

Reid. Favoured Heath as it dropped. Irvine’s cross. Only out from Bremner as far as ******. Two nil! and ****** holds them away to say ‘don’t hug me because you’ll hurt my arm’. What a difference that could make. There are eight minutes to go.

19

Brock. Oh a mistake has put ****** in and he’s scored. Everton are back in it, given away by Kevin Brock. A terrible mistake just when his team was so far on top.

11

And Devonshire. Oh he didn’t quite clear Latchford and a now a good run for ******. Oh and he’s seen . . . oh and it’s a goal! What brilliant thinking by ******.

If the photographer would just move just a moment for Kevin Sheedy there. The cross comes in and it went all the way and it’s in there and it’s ****** and it’s a second for Everton.

13

8

Brian Clough: It’s amazing what certain decisions can do in football. That looked offside from where I was sitting. Everton scored a goal that didn’t look offside. Brian Moore: Here comes ******. Oh! There’s the answer! Take that! If there were any lingering doubts for just a moment that faithful left foot of ******has put paid to them.

12

20 QUESTION 12: Kevin Sheedy chips the Rapid Vienna keeper, but who else scored in that game?

Sheedy again. Everton sensing there could be more goals. Surely a handball there. ******’s got it anyway. It’s his hat-trick. What a night for ******.

1

****** hammered home why he is one of the most consistent strikers in England with an outstanding hat-trick against Birmingham this afternoon, the visitors also suffering a second half shock when defender Ken Armstrong was sent off. The champions grabbed the lead through ****** with 11 minutes gone. Full-back Stevens attempted a long range shot that took a deflection off centre-half Armstrong, rebounding back off a post. ****** pounced to net from close range. From the free-kick after 22 minutes ****** scored an outstanding second goal. Stevens directed the ball towards the far post where ****** Lineker directed a perfect glancing header into the corner of the net. ****** was able to celebrate a tremendous hat-trick after 86 minutes when he headed home a pinpoint right wing cross from Reid.

2

A MINUTE later the crowd went berserk when Everton made it 3-0 with a goal from ******. Steven found the England striker who clipped the ball home from close range with Southampton on the rack and their young youth keeper devastated. As the visitors tried to dig in Townsend was booked, but Everton came forward once more with ****** thrilling the fans by grabbing his second and the Blues’ fourth after 34 minutes. It was Bracewell who worked the ball to his team-mate and he cracked it in past the helpless keeper from 12 yards – his 36th strike of the season. After 62 minutes ****** secured his hat-trick in style. Van den Hauwe found Heath on the left and his cross was headed home gleefully by the England man.

TREBLE

6

EVERTON’S season ended in a blaze of glory last night. Their 4-1 win over Sunderland at Goodison Park bears not the slightest resemblance to their joyous command in a game which they could have won by a score which would have rocked the football world had the ball run kindly for them in the Sunderland goalmouth. Young came back to lead the line and given the freedom of the park by the inept Sunderland defenders he spread destruction through their ranks with his wonderful ball distribution, artistry and sheer cheek. One of the highlights on a night when there were many was the three-goal contribution of ******. In order to get his treble, Ball stepped aside to allow him to take a penalty which ****** converted with complete assurance as though he has been hitting them from the spot all his life.

CHANCE This section’s really thr-eesy! All you have to do is identify the hat-trick heroes, from the Liverpool Echo reports as they appeared at the time. There are plenty of clues in the reports, but the goalscorer’s name has been asterisked out...

7

MARK the date . . . Match 14, 1964. It may well be a most important one in the history of Everton. The most expensive signing the club have ever made, ******, once of Blackburn Rovers, could be the man to make the Everton line as good as that famous fivesome of Spurs who helped to bring the London club all sorts of football distinction. Most Everton followers went with an open mind to see ****** and came away convinced he’s worth whatever the club paid. With three of his team’s six goals - their best bag this season - the new boy paid an early dividend and with luck and more of his solid shooting, he may collect a Championship winner’s medal within the next six weeks.

8

THEY say the FA Cup is what dreams are made of. Colin Harvey will drink to that. So will ****** and Paul Bracewell, just a few of the characters involved in a remarkable Everton triumph at Hillsborough last night. The Owls fell apart from the moment ****** took centre stage. The menacing Scot pounced on a Trevor Steven pass after just six minutes to steer his side in front. he was on his way to a memorable hat-trick and the goal blitz had Wednesday reeling.

3

******’s place has been under threat all season – but he led an Everton revival which should ensure a predictable Goodison sequel in a fortnight. Currently under pressure from on-loan Brett Angell, ****** rammed in three classic centre-forward’s goals to soothe scrambled Blue nerves and earned a thrilling 4-3 win. It was a captivating Cup tie. Everton looked in control for long spells, but never defended surely enough to demoralise the lively Third Division side.

4

TO describe ******’s input as remarkable would be an understatement. He struck after just 34 seconds, pouncing after tremendous work by Neil McDonald and Graeme Sharp. Colin Harvey got ******* for his explosive pace and he used it after 31 minutes to secure his second goal. Reid was the creator, sending a through ball towards the right hand side of the box. Stepping up a gear to leave his marker for dead ****** sent a low angled shot which found the net just inside the right hand post. Goodison erupted after 61 minutes when ****** secured a well deserved hat-trick.

CAN YOU UNRAVEL THE ECHO MATCH REPORT MYSTERY? ANSWERS AT THE BOTTOM Nevin played the ball into the box and ****** was on it like a flash, moving wide of Beasant before slotting home an angled shot that brought rapturous applause from the delighted supporters at the Gwladys Street End.

5

****** quite correctly basked in the weekend headlines following his first senior hat-trick and an all-round display of perspiration and inspiration. Wearing the all yellow strip which has already dazzled at Sheffield Wednesday and Wimbledon this season, Everton

enjoyed the boost of an early goal. David Unsworth lofted in an excellent cross which tempted debutant goalkeeper Sasa Ilic to give his best impression of Wayne Sleep haring out to hail a taxi. Moore played a sideways touch and ****** supplied an easy finish. His second goal was the product of an imaginative break forward a tidy finish and some powerful approach play by Campbell. His third enjoyed the benefit of a slight deflection off Cole, after ****** had dribbled confidently around him. Then he turned provider to embarrass Ferdinand and serve up the almost customary goal Joe-Max Moore’s workrate had earned.

9

YESTERDAY ****** was absolutely faultless, leading the line with a touch and a work-rate not seen at Goodison since Graeme Sharp; his aerial finishing was devastating. His goals were classics of the centre-forwards art. The opener came from a Tony Thomas cross that hung in the air and begged to be attacked. The second was a stooping finish after an incisive Everton move. It was a time for hero. Enter ****** *****. Tony Thomas hung another cross inside Bolton’s penalty area, this time one that curved wickedly back from the goal-line, and ****** met it with a prodigious leap. He butted the ball goalwards, it skidded up off the turf and past Ward for his first Premiership hat-trick.

NICKNAME ANSWERS 1. Andy Gray and Peter Reid. Or was it Peter Reid and Andy Gray? Their team-mates reckoned both had a more than passing resemblance to funny man of the time Freddie Starr, so one became Freddie One, the other Freddie Two! 2. David Weir. He’s a Scottish international, so it stands to reason a footballer would use Cockney rhyming slang for his nickname. Peas is short for Peas and Gravy, which sounds like Davey. Easy! 3. Trevor Steven. Quite simply a tribute to his tricky wingplay. 4. Colin Harvey. Christened the White Pele by a supporter’s banner after he was sold to Sheffield Wednesday. 5. Alex Young. A result of the BBC Play of the same name. 6. David Unsworth. No, not because of the size of his rear end, but because of his rampaging runs upfield.

GAMEOFTWOHALVES Can you spot the six differences in this famous picture? Answers at the bottom...

7. Dicky Downs. Everton star of the early 1920s, christened because of his ability to twist his body for spectacular overhead kicks. 8. Graham Stuart. because of his sparkly, cockney personality. 9. Pat van den Hauwe. and never has a nickname been more richly deserved! 10. Neil ‘Dissa-Pointon. Enough said! 11. Gordon ‘Honey’ West. Thanks to a handbag presented to him by a Kopite at an Anfield derby. 12. Adrian Heath. because of his less than substantial height. Also known as ‘Jap’ in less racially enlightened times.
