Collymore. 
Most expensive player in British football. 
Came into a side who played expansive, attacking football, having just finished fourth. 
Evans is remembered as a nice guy, but it’s easy to forget how ruthless he was early on, binning big signings like Dicks and Stewart, cutting loose experienced pros who he’d known for more than a decade such as Nicol and Whelan, recognising that Hutchison had a lot in his locker but took the piss too often, etc. 
And yes, if you were only judging what happened on the pitch, Collymore’s story is ‘Started well, began to go missing when it mattered, tailed off quite badly at the end’. But factor in the other stuff and it’s a guy who was on a one-man mission to turn the entire changing room toxic. An employee whose behaviour was appalling in multiple ways. And who, when people wonder why that Evans side didn’t push on, is the individual who has to take centre stage in explaining all the things that were fundamentally dysfunctional at Anfield. 
We got £7million for Collymore in the end, but we’d have been better off selling him 12 months earlier for half of that. 

I felt one of the problems he had was he didnt fit in with that clique of players we had at the time, but him and Fowler were a great partnership.

He had enough chances. The club bought him a big house in Rainhill that he wouldn't stay in because he kept gong home to the midlands every night, except the nights he stayed in town and got bladdered trying to shag anything that moved. He wanted to be the main man when we had the likes of Fowler and Macca in their pomp. Then James, Redknapp etc doing the modelling stuff. It put his nose out of joint. The players hated him because he just took the piss out of Evans despite chance after chance to put it right. Damn shame because him and God were superb together for a short time.

Oh yeah he was quite a crackpot and didnt help himself but he wasnt the only one who took the piss.

I think there is a story on extra time about him not fitting in with that clique.

Yep they were devastating together for a while..werent the bloos after him aswell?

Even Collymore wouldn't have gone there. He had some standards.

Even after loads of them said they wouldn't go when the FSW was there. Such a fickle fan base.

How can I put this...?

 

There's just something about Stan Collymore that meant he wasn't really their type of player in the mid-Nineties.

Opinion piece in the echo tonight is outstanding.

Apparently there is a national campaign to oust pickford and of course we were dragged into it.

Apparently he suffered a witch hunt after his 'collision'with virgil.

How dare you!  They've won the ECWC once, so they're right up there with Magdeburg, Mechelen and Slovan Bratislava.

Evertonians aren’t aware of this but they were the reason that the term bellend was introduced into the English language. Another first.

Gary Neville thinks we tried to furlough the players…

 

Carra just watched him say it.

Whereas Everton did the community minded thing and mostly outsourced their staff so they didn't need to. They really are a beacon for us all to follow.

And took a government Coronavirus interruption loan despite their chairman living in Monaco to avoid paying tax in the UK.

But home much do they charge for shorts?

 

I’m not picking by the way. I’m drunk & likely failing to be funny.

A bit suspect, to have 98% of season tickets renewed, isn't it? Very like reading the figures from an election in a dictatorship. The other 2% voted against, but they're not a problem now, as they were followed when leaving the voting centre and are now dead.

They charge less than der redshite so that's all that matters. And they didn't cause Heysel.

I didn't know they had taken a loan. I knew spurs and arsenal had.
