Vintage FPL: Everton 4-2 Sheffield United

Vintage Values III
1993 is a year that I have many fond memories of: My first ever cinema visit; Jurassic Park at the Cannon, Northampton. I’ll always remember it as I got smacked really hard on the bum by the old man for doing a ‘silent but violent’ fart on the front row (to his credit he did wait until we were in the foyer afterwards), Bruce Grobelaar’s rat tail, Andy Sinton, Chris Bart-Williams, Darren Caskey and Carlton Palmer being selected for the England national team, Norwich City beating Bayern Munich in the Olympic stadium and best of all finding my old man’s stash underneath the drawers in his bedroom (it was moved many times after that but me and my bro always managed to locate it).
One thing I did not remember, however, was a game requested by @FPL_Fly for this week’s Vintage Values, the match in question was Everton v Sheffield United.
It was early in the season (August) and Dane Whitehouse bagged in the first minute (which, according to @GriftersUnited, earned Dane a Watch which he was presented with before the Blades next home game). With goals being scored in the 1st, 89th and 90th minute this was another edge of the seat contest with Everton coming out on top. The win took the Toffees to 3rd place in the table. This was, however short lived as this was the season when they appointed the in vogue Mike Walker from Norwich City. Everton scrambled to safety on the last day of the season when Wimbledon Goalkeeper, Hans Segers, threw one of Graham Stuart’s pea-rollers into the back of his net. Sheffield United were relegated in 20th position (this was back when there were 22 teams).

Once again if you have any memories of this game or the 1993/94 season in particular please feel free to reminisce with me.
If there is a game you are gagging to relive send me a request and I’ll add it to my ever increasing list.
Although I don’t have great memories of the Everton v Sheffield United game, I’ll never forget those Readers Wives!
Thanks for reading.
