Who was the greatest player NEVER to play for Everton?

He was legendary, a forward who figures in the greatest player of all-time conversations.

Gav reveals that John Moores, the benefactor of the Mersey Millionaires, tried to use his financial muscle to sign the Real Madrid magician in 1960, the year Puskas scored four goals in the famous European Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt at Hampden Park.

All quantifiable, 24 carat, football greats - and all linked with moves to Everton at some stage of their careers.

But Ferenc Puskas wasn't just great.

When Everton travelled to Upton Park as league champions, but in an absorbing afternoon of fast-paced football succumbed to a 4-2 defeat, the legendary John Arlott, who was then writing for The Guardian, delivered a blazing critique of Catterick’s team.

That nugget of historical trivia is just one chiselled from the archives by Gavin Buckland in his memorable chronicle of Everton in the 1960s "Money Can't Buy Us Love."
