Everton are a Premier League side that are steeped in tradition and one that has had experience of winning silverware, although it has been a while since the trophy cabinet was filled with a new title. Nonetheless, the FA Cup is a tournament that does provide the Toffees with an excellent chance of adding to their collection and with the possibility of matches being drawn to play at Goodison Park, up to 39,414 fans can be expected to get behind their stars and cheer them on with the hope they can make it all the way to Wembley Stadium at the end of the season.
The Toffees may not be the biggest side in England in more recent times, however they have still been able to call upon some of the best names in the sport, which will have helped make FA Cup ties all the more attractive. Men like Tim Cahill, Romelu Lukaku and Duncan Ferguson were always big names that could make a difference, whereas Wayne Rooney, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have all featured a little more recently.
Managers to have been at the helm of the club in recent years have included David Moyes, Roberto Martinez and Carlo Ancelotti however it was Joe Royle that last brought the Merseyside outfit some success in the tournament; with the Toffees’ last triumph having come back in the 1994/95 campaign.
Although victories have been few and far between, Everton have still managed to claim five winners medals over the years when playing in the FA Cup, with successes in 1905/06, 1932/33, 1965/66, 1983/84 and the aforementioned 1994/95. With the period of time between each win, history would suggest that it is about time the blue part of Merseyside added to their trophy cabinet in the near future.
That 1994/95 success will perhaps be one of the best moments in the tournament that fans will remember fondly, as Royle’s side managed to overcome an Alex Ferguson-led Manchester United at the old Wembley Stadium with a 1-0 victory.
A goal from Paul Rideout after Graham Stuart cannoned a shot off the crossbar was enough as Welsh goalkeeper Neville Southall remained unbeatable as he put in one of the best performances of his career to keep men like Brian McClair and Mark Hughes at bay, whilst the Red Devils also boasted players like Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel and Ryan Giggs as well.
