The Independent Online

Your team's best performance last season?

We outclassed Villa at Villa Park which was enjoyable as was our home victory against Liverpool but the game that cemented out fourth place finish was the memorable 1-0 win at a throbbing Goodison Park against Man United courtesy of a Duncan Ferguson header.

And the worst?

You would think I would say the 7-0 defeat at Arsenal but fourth place was already secured so it was largely irrelevant. Losing 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield and hardly getting a kick of the ball was upsetting.

Who was your best player last season?

Tim Cahill was the driving force behind the team, scoring a hatful from midfield and making the team tick.

Who was the most under-rated?

Perennial fans whipping boy Alessandro Pistone was arguably our most consistant defender. He is not liked by some sections of the fanbase but he's decent on the ball, two footed and made some vital tackles.

And the worst player?

Ooh a few too choose from here. Kilbane played all season and had about two decent games. [Gary] Naysmith was abysmal but the honour must go to Richard Wright - Played eight league games, Everton won one, drew one and lost six whilst he conceded 20 goals and kept zero clean sheets.

What was the most memorable moment?

Everton making a moockery of all the so called experts pre-season predictions of relegation.

Funniest moment, if any?

Rooney's face after the cup final.

Whos was the best individual performance against you?

Arjen Robben ran us ragged at the Bridge.

Best set of fans, besides your own?

Sunderland fans in the F.A Cup enjoyed the day out with plenty of singing whilst watching their team outclassed!

Best chant?

"Kopites are Gobshites" (Can you print that!?) or "Champions League - we're having a laugh"

Which ground is your favourite to visit and why?

The City of Manchester Stadium is impressive and you've always got a good chance of three points too!

What improvements need to be made this season?

A left back, a centre back, a left winger and a striker

Individual with most to prove?

Record signing James Beattie, yet to justify his price tag.

Which game are you most looking forward to?

The away leg of our Champions League Qualifying round game.

Which of your young players has impressed you?

James Vaughan looks to have a bright future ahead of him. He's both Everton's and the Premier League's youngest ever scorer, took that first record of some lad who plays for Manchester United now.

If money was no object which player or manager would like to see at your club?

Ronaldinho - Pure class and plays the game with a smile on his face.

What would you consider to be a good season?

European qualification

How would you sum up your manager?

Fantastic - a miracle worker in fact!

If you had to put a £1m bet on where your team finishes, where would you say?

8th
