Everton fans with more than a passing interest in the modern craze of social media will be more than aware that former Evertonian Kevin Campbell isn’t shy of giving his thoughts on the club on Twitter.

The now 48-year-old had two spells at Goodison Park in his playing career, he joined us initially on loan initially in the second half of the 1998/99 season when he made the switch from Trabzonspor – eight starting appearances with a return of nine goals. We signed him permanently that summer for a reported £3million and he went on to make 131 starting appearances, with 25 additional showings from the bench. In that permanent spell, he scored 42 times until he departed in January 2005 as a free agent.

On Wednesday evening if he was watching a stream of our second friendly of the summer down at Gigg Lane as we took a 1-1 draw from Bury and in his opinion, Everton need to get ‘ruthless’ and lose the ‘dead wood’ if new manager Marco Silva is to achieve what he clearly wants to do at the club.

As you’d expect, the reactions to his advice were positive and in agreement as many fans think the same themselves.
