Thomas Radzinski

What else needs to be said? Thomas Radzinski has been absolutely fantastic for Everton, and if anything is one of if not THE most important part of our team. Everton have played a lot better when he's in the side, he gives us the pace which has been so badly lacking in previous years.

Just wondering, how much media coverage does Radzinski's exploits in the Premier League get over in Canada? I'm sure it would be quite a lot, seeing that Everton apparently have a substantial support base in Canada (I know a number of Evertonians in southern Ontario).

There's practically nothing in the general media here.

The newspapers mainly report the scorelines without mentioning the scorers.

Premiership news on Television is pretty much restricted to the sports specialty channels, and even then not given prominence.

Most of us get our Premiership news from the WEB.

I sure wish Radz were playing for us this weekend against Germany...

Radzinski was voted player of the season by the everton-supporter wich means, he even finished above Wayne Rooney; wich actually says a lot.

"I never knew my birth parents. There was a car accident. my birth mother was incinerated, and I only survived because her smoking carcass had formed a protective cocoon of slaughtered human effluence. A Belgian man and his fifteen year-old love slave were looting the accident scene, came across a blood soaked baby, moi, and they raised me to be evil."

Radzinski provides a great foil for Rooney, the two can just wreck havoc on defences like there's no tomorrow. Once we get our midfield sorted out we will have a championship side

Fans Vote For Radzinski

Everton fans have spurned Wayne Rooney and voted Tomasz Radzinski as their player of last season and that will delight manager David Moyes in his continued bid to keep the spotlight away from the England star.

The voting by over 30,000 Everton fans was organised by Everton's website, and amazingly the club's fans polled over 14,000 votes for striker Radzinski and less than 3,000 for Rooney.

Radzinski finished top scorer in Everton's best season in years when they narrowly missed European qualification and the former Anderlecht striker picked up 51% of the total vote.

The Canadian international missed the last eight games of the season with injury but still far outstripped Rooney, who came second in the voting.

And that pleased Everton legend Graeme Sharp, who understands and supports Moyes' attempts to protect Rooney, who will get an extra week off on holiday in Mexico when the rest of the squad start pre-season training on Thursday.

Sharp said: "Wayne grabbed all the headlines, but the fans are right to appreciate what Tomasz did for the club last season."
