Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Special: Matt Jackson recalls Everton's 4-1 thrashing of Tottenham and how Joe Royle's 'Dogs of War' prevented the so-called 'Dream Final'
Thursday, 9 April
Everton's 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the 1995 FA Cup semi-final is regarded as one of the Blues' greatest-ever displays - particularly in a big game - and the best performance of Joe Roye's tenure as manager. April 9, 2020 is the 25th anniversary of the match at Elland Road and in a Royal Blue podcast special, Chris Beesley speaks to Matt Jackson - scorer of the opening goal that afternoon. The former Blues right-back discusses why he believes his side enjoyed a psychological advantage before a ball was even kicked, his header from Andy Hinchcliffe's corner kick, the mystery behind super super Daniel Amokachi's introduction into the game and the delight of 'The Dogs of War' at denying the so-called 'Dream Final' between Spurs and the previous season's double winners, Manchester United. Jackson also offers his opinion on the current Everton side under Carlo Ancelotti and what he really thought about his old team-mate Duncan Ferguson going into management.
