The latest entrant in to the 90’s Football Hall of Fame is Duncan Ferguson, the former Everton striker who was infamous for his physicality and penchant for violence on the pitch.
An FA Cup winner in 1995, the Scot got into many scrapes and fights over the years, and is one of very few footballers to have been jailed for an incident on the field.
But he was a quality footballer, too, who was as lethal in the air as he was with his fists, and scored a few crackers with his feet as well.
Freelance football writer Ste Tudor joined Ste McGovern and Peter Henry on the latest episode of the 90’s Football Hall of Fame podcast to discuss Ferguson’s career, what made him so terrifying to play against, our favourite violent flashes of his.
We also discussed his poor record for Rangers, why his transfer to Newcastle United was a bust, and why his identity is so intertwined with Everton.
