[quote="john j connell"]My Everton career, John Connell.
The youngest (made my debut at just turned 9 years of age)
The oldest (turned 70 years of age and still playing) to ever play for Everton.
Most appearances ( have not missed a game in 61 years)
Highest scorer ever, scored 59 league goals every season,(could not bring myself to break Dixies record. John Connell just does not evoke the same image as that of a marauding William Ralph Dean.
Hold the record for most goals scored against Liverpool, (scored 10 goals in every game i played against them (home and away), in one memorable game v Liverpool i was called upon to go in goal after our keeper was sent off and i ended up saving 11 (yes 11) penalties, all at the Kop end i must add.
Won the European cup (when it was a proper champions cup) and even todays watered down version, won the F A cup and other cups under (various names) every season since i made my debut.
A few other little things that may be of interest, i could leap to twice my own height and could hang in the air for 10 to 15 seconds, the ferocity of some of my headers many a time broke the crossbar (on one occasion the force uprooted the whole of the goal (coincidentally that was also at the Kop end) as for fast/speed my nickname was the Blur.
I love my Everton, I am living the dream. JJC.[/quote
