Brown made 253 appearances for Everton from 1963-71 and featured in the 1969-70 First Division title-winning side.

The Scot, who was signed from Partick Thistle in September 1963, played in a number of positions but was renowned for his toughness and ability to get forward from full-back.

He scored 11 goals for Everton but also earned an unwanted place in local folklore with an infamous own goal in a 1969 Merseyside derby against Liverpool.

After leaving Everton, he went on to play for Shrewsbury before finishing his playing career back on Merseyside with Southport.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
