2009-10 Everton Home Shirt Size Large
Era: 2009-10 (Used for the 2009-10 Barclays Premier League season)
This article comes to you looking almost as good as it were the day it was made! There is so few signs of wear that I am inclined to think it has never been worn before!
Pit to Pit Measurement: 23 inches
Shirt Length: 30.5 inches
Made by Le Coq Sportif in 2009; the dimensions of this shirt would suggest it is better suited for someone who would wear a size extra-large shirt.
After 26 years, Le Coq Sportif and Everton would be united again and to celebrate their new relationship; the French kit-supplier would reprise a classic Everton home shirt ahead of the 2009-10 season as they recreated their iconic 1983-85 home shirt! That shirt would be synonymous with a trophy laden period in the clubs history as they collected the FA Cup, Charity Shield and UEFA Cup Winners Cup in those two seasons! The 2009-10 season shirt would be just as glorious, keeping the white hoop neck collar with the v motif descending from the neck and same white cuffs on the sleeves with blue stripes – this shirt is a perfect example of a how a throwback shirt should be done! Back to the present, Everton would enjoy yet another fine season in the Premier League; finishing in 8th place!
The 2008-09 season will go down seminally in ‘Toffees’ folklore as they finished in 5th place and reached the final of the FA Cup! They would have to come into the 2009-10 season without their star defender of recent times – Joleon Lescott as he was sold to Manchester City for £22 million, however, they would land Brazilian striker – Jo, on loan from City, while Sylvain Distin and John Heitinga were signed to replace the departing Lescott.
The season would start slowly for David Moyes’ side as the 2009 portion of the season was one to forget as they won just 4 times in the league to end the year in 10th place and just 25 points on the board. Coming into 2010 on a 5 match unbeaten run, they would leverage that form into the New Year by adding 3 wins and a draw before eventually being beaten 1-0 by Liverpool at Anfield on the February 6th Derby. Only Tottenham would defeat them in the 2010 portion of the campaign as they won 8 (including wins over Manchester United and Chelsea) and drew 5 to finish in 8th place!
Both appearances in the domestic cup competitions yielded early exits as they were eliminated by Tottenham in the 4th Round of the League Cup and then by Birmingham City in the 4th Round of the FA Cup. Their Europa League journey would take them to the Round of 32, after progressing from a group that also featured Benfica; they would be eliminated in the first knockout round by Benfica’s fierce rivals – Sporting!
The notable players that season were:
Louis Saha, Yakubu, James Vaughan, Andrew Johnson, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, Steven Pienaar, Jack Rodwell, Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill, Leon Osman, Marouane Fellaini, Seamus Coleman, Phil Neville, Philippe Senderos, Leighton Baines, Joseph Yobo, Sylvain Distin, John Heitinga, Shkodran Mustafi, Phil Jagielka, Dan Gosling, Jack Rodwell, Tony Hibbert, Tim Howard, Carlo Nash
