Re: Just finished Pat Nevin's book
Looking back it wasn't a good situation to be in for Howard Kendall to come back in to with Everton.....with the state the club was in..
I know it's all about telling his side of the story...
But you would think he would have a bit more class.....
I think it's disrespectful to be telling these kind of stories about Howard Kendall from a player who seems to always be affiliated with Chelsea ...not Everton....
I don't think i will be wasting my money on this former player's tell all....
HK comes out of it looking terrible. Couple of anecodotes
- being pissed during a game to the point the players were making tactical changes on the pitch
- excluding Nevin and Hinchy for not being drinkers
- Mo Johnston missing training for being on the lash, going in to apologise to HK who opened a bottle of champagne and polished it off with him
Says also that there was a clear divide between the older players and the new signings (Cottee etc) which never really went away. He does say that if we'd won the 89 Cup Final he feels that team could have lifted off though, but as it was it all fell away.
The best anecdote was big Nev challenging the players to beat him with long shots and spending 10 minutes saving all of them without using his hands. Amazing.
