Everton's surprise signing in the 80's from lowly Grimsby was Paul Wilkinson. Wilko scored the goal that put us out of the 1984/85 Milk Cup, and Howard Kendall saw enough of him in that game to sign him in later years.
Wilko footballing talent was never in question, but obviously his hair style was. He brought to Goodison everything bad from the fishing hamlet that is Grimsby, and that included his outrageous mullet.
In fairness to the lad, these hair styles were the fashion of the day, but thankfully like the 80's itself they are long behind us.
Limahl from Kajagoogoo was said to model himself on Wilko, as did Joan Collins, Bette Midler, Jane Fonda and alike.
