f***ing miss this bloke. I remember being at Everton for his full debut. Cheiky (RIP) and him ran the show.

I was young and naively thought that squad was going to do something and we’d be enjoying NUFC again for a long time. Oh how wrong I was.

I'm wondering if I can remember a better debut than his at Everton. Jonas at ManU springs to mind but wasn't as significant. Cisse and Sissoko, different seasons but both against Villa, were pretty good but certainly not on the same scale. Ferguson at home to Wimbledon circa 98?

Asprilla away at Boro was top notch like, although he came on as sub so not sure if you’d count that.  I remember Ferdinand and Ginola’s debuts at home to Coventry in the same season being class aswell.

Mick Quinn against Leeds or Supermac against Liverpool....no comparison
and now Tudor's gone down for Newcastle

Nope. Ben Arfa’s debut was better than all of them.

Should I go all Kaizero and say that Everton wasn't his debut?

Still his full debut so it's not too important. Tiote's debut against Everton was just as impressive, he absolutely bossed it. 100% pass accuracy as well.

Best debut of all time? Easy! SuperMac against Liverpool. The best ever, by a country mile.

The best bit about SuperMacs debut was him coming off after scoring the first two to have two front teeth out, then coming back on to get his hat trick. Instant hero. Forever.

Have to say Dubravka's was a pretty impressive debut!

Yeah Dubravka is a good shout. Was Krul's debut vs Palermo or had he come off the bench before that game?

Wijnaldum vs Southampton was decent

Him being helped off the pitch concussed not knowing where the hell he was only to come back on and get the 3rd. Didn't he miss a penalty that game too

HBA's wasn't even the best debut in that match.
