Everton legend's verdict as Leicester lift trophy

A Goodison Park legend was live on air at Radio Clatterbridge as Leicester prepared to destroy Everton and lift the Premier League trophy.

Former winger turned pundit Ronny Goodlass joined the Saturday Sequence to talk about the Toffees' season and the future of their manager.

Ronny spoke of storms and cloud as presenter and Liverpool fan Steve Evans asked him about Roberto Martinez, whose job was under scrutiny once more as a thunderstorm brewed over Leicester's King Power Stadium.

"Ronny was merely talking about the weather though wasn't he?" - Steve Evans, presenter

Fellow presenter, and Evertonian, Paul Allt joined Ronny pondering whether it could have been Everton in this unlikely position since Leicester became title holders just over a year since being bottom of the league.

"We've had a very poor season... I think it's time for change." - Ronnie Goodlass, Everton legend

In the end, home captain Wes Morgan and manager Claudio Ranieri helped see off the visitors 3-1 before lifting the Premier League trophy after a 132-year wait.

Paul's pal Joanne Fox Goodman, a lifelong Leicester supporter and season ticket holder, was at the stadium to watch the drama unfold.

She told listeners of her astonishment and the pride she felt on Leicester’s unlikely title win.

Joanne even got her picture taken with Morgan shortly after the English born Jamaican lifted the trophy.

Nicknamed by Claudio Ranieri as Baloo of the Jungle Book, he was more than happy to pose for a photo wearing his winners medal with Joanne.

"It's the best feeling in the world. I can't tell you how happy we all are. Never in my lifetime did I think we would be in this position." - Joanne Fox Goodman

Ronny, who played for Everton and Tranmere over 50 times between the mid-70s and 80s, will be making another visit to our studios at Radio Clatterbridge in the near future.
