March 14, 2002, it was a watershed moment for both Everton Football Club and David Moyes.

Moyes managed Everton for more seasons than their most successful boss Howard Kendall – over his three stints in total – and he transformed what had been an ailing team with a single top half finish in the first decade of the Premier League to one that would achieve the feat nine times under his stewardship.
