As part of our Everton Classic Game Rewind, the entire site coverage is taking you back to the fateful weekend of 19th-21st May, 1995. For more information, see this post.

Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Tomorrow, the Blues aim for cup glory when they take on Manchester United in the FA Cup Final. Over their last 10 meetings, the Blues have three wins, one draw, and six losses. In their most recent match against the Red Devils in February, Duncan Ferguson headed home a triumphant effort to guide the Blues to a 1-0 victory. Can we expect to see more of the same tomorrow? COYB!

Watch the highlights from their last meeting below (Dunc’s goal at 3:27).

And the highlights from Everton’s semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur a month ago.

He was desperate to play but he should not have been on. What a good mistake it was,” said manager Joe Royle on the famous phantom substitution. [Independent]
