Terrible news for all blues this morning. Brian Labone passed away last night aged 66. A true gentleman and a real Evertonian through and through. "The last of the corinthians".

Hero is such an overused word nowadays but this was a man who embodied it. Everton FC couldn't have ever had a better ambassador.

"Brian was Everton. If you could put together a team of every player that has ever captained Everton, every one of us would turn to Brian to lead us out. He will always be known as the captain of Everton." - Kevin Ratcliffe

RIP Labby
