    Everton had him between the ages of 24 and 29, and definitely got his best years. He was a real cult hero with the fans.

    Strachan was clueless really with most of his signing here. He only played a 2 man midfield but he always signed players suited to playing in a 3 - Brown, Gravesen, Jarosik, Crosas, Donati then he mixed them all about because none worked well together like Petrov and Lennon in his first season and even ended up playing Jarosik on the left a guy about 6ft 4 who had no mobility lol

    Terrible management. He was dreadful in the transfermarket compared to O'Neill, Lennon, Deila and Rodgers.

    He could have got better out of a lot of those players as well if he was willing to change formation but out of about 200 games he must have managed us he must have played 4-4-2 in about 190 of them and 4-4-1-1 in the other 10. Boring as *.

    He never once played Nakamura behind a striker and I only remember 1 time where McGeady never played on the left which was when he played McGeady behind the striker in the 2-0 League Cup final win against the huns.

    Even during games he would never mix anything up McGeady always on the left, Nakamura always on the right at all times.

    Strachan dreadful in the transfer market?

    Boruc, Nakamura, Samaras, Hesselink.

    McDonald, Robson, Hartley, Brown.

    Harsh, ILTC.

    Strachan wasted Gravesen by blackballing him from the team. I will never forget or forgive him for doing that.
    Tommy was a hero with the Celtic fans. I guess Strachan didn't like Gravesen after he scored two goals against the Huns.

    The fact he was married to a * star made me like him even more.

    2 wonderful goals I am surprised he did not turn into a legend for us.

    A favourite of mine I must admit.

    He was a great player and always seemed to raise his game v them.

    James McFadyen talking about Gravesen in training-

    'Once he brought a paintball gun in and started just shooting people. He brought fireworks in one day.

    'The physio's room was at the side of one of the pitches. The physio was one of the fittest guys at the club, he was in his 50s and used to play a bit.

    'He was running with the injured players when Tommy comes out with a big rocket and fires it right at him.'
