Football News

Many feel that the day David Moyes will celebrate 10 years at Everton, would be the ideal time for the Scot to notch his first win at Anfield as manager.

Walter Smith was the last Toffees boss to lead an Everton side to an away league victory over Liverpool, and since then both sides have turned over a myriad of players.

GMF takes a look at where those players from that fateful day have gone since……


Sander Westerveld

Recovered from his sending off in the game 13 years ago to lead Liverpool to the treble in 2001 before moving to Real Sociedad. He moved back to the Premier League with Portsmouth in 2005, before being loaned to Everton. Spells in Spain, Holland and Italy followed before a switch to Ajax Cape Town where he currently plies his trade.

Steve Staunton

Was forced to go in goal after Westerveld's dismissal, one of his final acts in a Red shirt as he left for Aston Villa the following summer. He continued his stay in the midlands with spells at Coventry City and Walsall, in-between featuring in his second World Cup finals in 2002.

Took over as Republic of Ireland manager in 2006, but a failed Euro 2008 qualifying campaign saw him sacked before taking over at Darlington in 2009, spending just five months at the financially stricken club.

Sami Hyypia

After his first season at Liverpool, Hyppia went on to become a fans favourite at Anfield, making over 300 appearances for the club and was part of the side that won the 2005 Champions League. Moved to Bayer Leverkusen in 2009, and after retiring at the end of last season revealed plans to take to attain a coaching license.

Jamie Carragher

Has gone on to become a club stalwart, overseeing their Champions League win and become the club's second record appearance maker. With his influence on the wane Carragher is likely to call it a day after this season with a coaching role surely in the offing.

Vegard Heggem

Part of the squad that won three trophies in 2001, but in truth his appearances were severely limited after Hyppia's emergence. Left the club in 2003 and subsequently retired. Now on the board with former club Rosenborg.

Patrik Berger

Injuries restricted Berger's involvement during the remainder of Gerrard Houllier's tenure at Liverpool, before a move to Harry Redknapp's Portsmouth signalled a revival in his career. Made little impact with Aston Villa and soon moved to Sparta Prague in 2008. However a ligament injury forced him to retire in 2010 aged 36.

Dietmar Hamann

Took Liverpool's first penalty in the victorious penalty shoot-out against AC Milan in 2005, and helped the club win the FA Cup the following season. Endured a non-eventful spell at Manchester City before undertaking a coaching role with both Milton Keynes Dons and Leicester City. In July 2011 Stockport County came calling, appointing the German as their manager, however he resigned four months later.

Jamie Redknapp

Injuries ruined the rest of Redknapp's time on Merseyside, before successful spells at Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton under father Harry Redknapp. He was forced to retire six months later due to a long-term knee problem but was expected to come back to the game with Chelsea. Now a regular pundit with Sky Sports.

Vladimir Smicer

His long-range strike in the 2005 Champions League, and penalty in the shoot-out proved to be his final but most worthwhile contribution in a Liverpool shirt. Injuries ruined his time with Bordeaux, but he went out on a high at Slavia Prague, winning the league title before retiring in 2009. Currently sports manager with the Czech Republic national team.

Michael Owen

Sold off by Rafa Benitez in 2003 to Real Madrid, where a brief spell led to a move to Newcastle United, where injuries dominated his club and international prospects. A swan-song at Manchester United has also seen injuries mar the twilight of his career.

Robbie Fowler

Scored Liverpool's fourth in the UEFA Cup final against Alaves, as well as in the Worthington Cup final. Moves to Leeds Untied and Manchester City proved largely unsuccessful before a brief spell back at Anfield. His switch to Cardiff City didn't coincide with an FA Cup appearance, with moves to Australia and Thailand following, before taking up coaching roles with the likes of Milton Keynes Dons and Bury.


Paul Gerrard

After leaving Everton in 2004, Gerrard became something of a journeyman in the Football League, moving to Nottingham Forest and then Sheffield United, before a loan spell at Blackpool. He failed to make an appearance while at Stockport, but Oldham brought him in initially as a coach only to field him twice this season instead of the suspended Alex Cisak.

Michael Ball

Before leaving the club in 2001, Ball made his England debut in Sven Goran Eriksson's first match in charge against Spain, prior to his move to Rangers. League titles in the SPL and then in Holland with PSV Eindhoven came thereafter. Has since had spells with Manchester City and Leicester City, where he was sacked from in January.

Richard Gough

The Scot spent two more years with Everton before retiring from the game in 2001. Is now heavily involved with Rangers' current problems, constantly backing the takeover attempts of majority shareholder Dave King.

Richard Dunne

Left the following summer for Manchester City, only to be relegated in his first season. He stayed on however, helping the club back into the Premier League and assisting in the nurturing of the likes of Micah Richards. Was unceremoniously forced out of the club in 2009, where Aston Villa picked him up, his first Villains goal coming against City in October.

David Weir

After making 269 appearances for Everton, Weir moved to Rangers, picking up three league titles, leaving the club in January. The Scot then moved back to Everton helping with their academy and reserve teams, which he has already featured for since his return.

Nick Barmby

Another player to leave the summer following their derby win, with Liverpool the beneficiaries. Helped the club win the treble in 2001, before moving to Leeds United and then Hull City. Scored the first goal under Eriksson's reign as England manager before his career came to an end when he was offered the job at the KC Stadium. Current overseeing a playoff push.

John Collins

Collins ended his career with Fulham in England, again after leaving Everton in 2000. He spent three years attaining coaching badges, before being appointed Hibernian manager in 2006. Winning the League Cup couldn't prevent a boardroom dispute, as the Scot resigned joining Charleroi, who he saved from relegation in 2008. Now director of football at Livingston.

Don Hutchison

Sunderland was Hutchinson's next destination after leaving Everton in 2000, before West Ham United and Millwall came knocking. Spells at Coventry City and Luton Town followed before retirement in 2008.

Abel Xavier

Another who swapped Goodison Park for Anfield, this time in 2002 before he scoured Europe, playing for Galatasaray, Hannover and Roma, before moving back to England with Middlesbrough. He enjoyed one year at LA Galaxy before calling time on his career and subsequently converting to Islam.

Kevin Campbell

The emergence of Wayne Rooney saw Campbell's opportunities limited, leading to a move to West Bromwich Albion and then Cardiff City. Campbell has since go on to run his own record label and now co-owns a security company called T1 Protection.

Francis Jeffers

Jeffers' second spell at Everton failed to spark into life, while moves to the likes of Charlton Athletic and Rangers saw now change in his fortunes. Blackburn Rovers and Ipswich Town took a punt as well, before a more encouraging spell at Sheffield Wednesday. Currently with the Newcastle United Jets in the A-league.
