21. Kevin Sheedy (1982-92)
349 appearances, 93 goals
Sheedy’s talent lay fallow at Liverpool, until Kendall took him to Goodison for £100,000 – it speaks volumes that Bob Paisley was both against the deal and unhappy with the tribunal-set price. Blessed with a left foot that was responsible for countless perfect passes – aiding and abetting Gary Lineker during the striker’s smash-and-grab tenure at Goodison – and wonderful free kicks, he was a vital part of Everton’s heady mid-eighties success. Look beyond his left foot – I know it’s hard – and you see an excellent 97 goals in 368 appearances. Another genius signing by Kendall, he gave the two-fingered salute to the Kop after scoring, pushing him higher up this list.
