Can everyone take a moment to admire Everton’s commemorative home shirt?
Everton’s kit commemorates 125 years at Goodison Park, and we’d like to commemorate just how lovely it is.
The prelude to the Premier League season is filled with reactions to new kits, but perhaps the best design this summer goes to a golden oldie.
The 2017/18 season marks 125 years at Goodison Park for Everton, and as such the club have released a rather nice-looking commemorative range. The club have a modern top to wear for the regular season, but for now feast your eyes on this nostalgic number that the club wore in a pre-season friendly against Sevilla.
Here’s Michael Keane, fresh from his move to the Toffees from Burnley, looking every inch a 1950s sweeper.
Wayne Rooney in particular, collar turned up, could well fill the role of inside forward, a position more closely associated with the 1920s and 1930s.
Here’s Kevin Mirallas kicking the ball so hard it’s sent him back in time.
Davy Klaassen has nailed the filter.

But nobody wears it better than young midfielder Tom Davies, whose low socks and blond locks complete the image.
Everton and Sevilla shared the pre-season spoils in a 2-2 draw – here’s new signing Sandro Ramirez netting for Ronald Koeman’s team.
But what you really want to see is his shirt, right?
A thing of beauty.
