Everton fans are reminiscing over Andy Johnson’s time in blue, after a video was tweeted to appreciate his career.
In response to a post from Twitter account @StreetsRemember, Blues fans are looking back at the Englishman’s time at Goodison Park and some of the performances he put in across the two years he spent with the club.
Johnson joined Everton in 2006 from Crystal Palace, for a club record fee of £8.5 million (via The Guardian). He made a total of 71 appearances for the Toffees and scored 22 goals (via Transfermarkt), before leaving to join Fulham in the summer of 2008.
The 39-year-old is mostly known for his time with Palace, where he enjoyed two spells and played a total of 150 matches (also Transfermarkt).
Should Jordan Pickford be Everton's first choice next season?
Many Everton fans have flocked to the tweet to remember the striker during his days at Goodison. One supporter has branded him a ‘baller’ whilst another has said he was a ‘proper Everton player’.
Aj was a baller happy days
