Plenty of Everton fans have been lauding Steven Naismith as he reflected on his Toffees career in an exclusive interview with Obstructed View.
In the interview, the 34-year old reminisced over his time at Goodison Park, including scoring an impressive hat-trick against Chelsea in the Premier League in September 2015.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
Naismith, signed by current West Ham United manager David Moyes back in 2012, was a steady player for the Merseyside club, scoring a total of 26 goals and supplying 12 assists in 123 games in all competitions over four seasons (Transfermarkt).
The interview was received very well by several members of the Goodison Park faithful, as he gave an open and honest account of his time there.

Lived Naisy. Never should have let him go. Easily one of our most underrated players ever.

This is tremendous. My first Everton game in person was his hat trick against Chelsea and he will always be one of my favorite players

Brilliant interview. What a man Naisy is, loved the way he said “we” when talking about our chances this season.

Always comes across as a really decent fella. Never forgot his roots. Never looked down on people. And shared what he had with those less fortunate. Top bloke.
