"This Club has been a big part of my life and this city has been a big part of my life. I met my wife here and my three kids were born here.
"I miss the place, I miss the football and I miss the derbies. You are a long time retired, I have been retired for five years and it feels like 25. So to the players that are here now, stay in football as long as you can and stay at this Club as long as you can because there is only one way after leaving this Club, and that is down.
"The fans here have always been great towards me. They are unbelievable. They took me in and they are the best fans in the country, if not the world."
Duncan Ferguson on receiving The Everton Giant Award. 19th May 2011
