The club rarely incorporated a badge of any description on its shirts. An interwoven "EFC" design was adopted between 1922 and 1930 before the club reverted to plain royal blue shirts until 1972 when bold "EFC" lettering was added. The crest designed by Kelly was first used on the team's shirts in 1978 and has remained there ever since, while undergoing gradual change to become the version used today.

Gwladys Street Hall of Fame returns with four new Evertonian heroes inducted #EFC

The outbreak of the Second World War again saw the suspension of league football, and when official competition resumed in 1946, the Everton team had been split up and paled in comparison to the pre-war team. Everton were relegated for the second time in 1950–51 and did not earn promotion until 1953–54, when they finished as runners-up in their third season in the Second Division. The club have been a top-flight presence ever since.[10]

Everything is fine at Everton - it’s good to have a bit of competition in your side.

According to Cruyff this boy was very bright, he had a quick brain and he needed a more experienced player to look after him. I told him it was fine [to have him as my new room-mate].

Stones was earlier named in City's official Champions League squad, published on the Uefa website before the transfer was confirmed.

Did the criticism hurt? Yeah, massively. But now it’s not just four defenders who have to defend. Koeman demands that we all defend, from front to back.
