E Mail From BLUE PETER
I know that everyone is talking about David Moyes being loyal and the question we all want answering is, is he staying or not. But I would like the opportunity to talk about one of his players.
Isn't it refreshing in this day and age of greed that we have a footballer who has stayed the distance at one club, Everton? Because of his dedication and his commitment to the Everton cause he has been given a deserved testimonial when we play AEK Athens on the 8th August.
Let's hope that as many Evertonians as possible turn up to pay tribute to a player who has never ever given other than his best when he puts on an Everton shirt
Since his debut in the 2000 season against West Ham, Tony has played over 300 times. Being a local lad he has had his fair share of stick form the fans, but he has dusted himself down and just got on with it like he has always done.
Tony must be a dream to work with and he is probably playing the best footy of his career. Last season he has got forward more than I have ever seen him. He has certainly got a few more seasons in him and let's hope he scores that elusive goal soon. Maybe his testimonial is the place to do it.
Well done Tony. You are a proper Everton hero.
