'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The 300 Club

In the defeat away to Manchester United, Club Captain Phil Neville joined the ranks of players whom have played three hundred times for Everton.

Phil became the 31st player to reach this milestone behind recent additions, Leon Osman and record European appearance holder Tony Hibbert . But the question is how does Phil stack up against the other players to have achieved this.

Although Phil has yet to gain any major honours with Everton. Unlike players whom gained their number of appearances during more successful times for the club such as Adrian Heath (306), former captain Kevin Radcliffe(494) , Graeme Sharp (445) who was top goal scorer in no less than 4 seasons and finally club record appearance holder Neville Southall who amassed 750 appearances for the blues. All of these players archived 2 league and 2 FA Cup successes during their time at the club.

Other members of the club include club record goal scorer Dixie Dean (431) who scored an incredible 377 goals during this time. Another Former Club Captain Dave Watson (529) who picked up an FA Cup winners medal in 1995. The record for most appearances for an outfield player is held by Club legend Brian Labone (533) who also picked up major honours during his time at the club.

Another more recent notable member of the 300 club, is record premier league holder David Unsworth (355) whom also picked up his only major honour in 1995 with Joe Royles, Dogs of War. The theme all of these player seem to have in common is they archived major honours during their time at the club. Although Phil may not win anything during his time at the club (here's to hoping he manges too). He will be remembered, for his attitude, commitment and style of play for these reason not only has he been one of the first names of the team sheet for a number of years he has also been club captain for a number of years.

There has been a number of great players, fans favourites, captains, trophy winners and internationals who failed to reach the 300 club. Phil has archived this and the respect of the Everton fans. Not bad for a player who quotes recently attributed to him in the media it took him over 18 months, at the club to be accepted. It all changed with a tackle on former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, to turn of from red devil to true blue!
