Remember the Felli good times before match; 7 @LIVECHONEWS ECHO Royal Blue with PHIL KIRKBRIDE @philkecho philip.kirkbride@liverpool.com.

Byline: PHIL KIRKBRIDE

IT wasn't even three years ago when Marouane Fellaini was a one-man wrecking machine, trampling over the Manchester United defence at Goodison.

If ever he was an Everton hero, it was on that balmy August night as the Blues' season got off to a raucous start.

Much has changed since then and the following summer, Fellaini was sold to Manchester United who came in with an offer few would refuse.

But time hasn't exactly been a healer.

Since leaving, Fellaini has received somewhat of a mixed reception from the supporters he used to call his own.

Perhaps tarnished with the ill-feeling attached to David Moyes'"derisory" bid for he and Leighton Baines or seen as a player that belongs to an uncultured past, the Belgian's reception from Everton fans hasn't been the best.

But as he prepares to play at Goodison for the first time since leaving for Old Trafford, everyone of a Blue persuasion should remember why they loved him.

Remember nights like August 20, 2012 when he man-handled Man United in a season he finished as the club's top scorer.

That's all before kick-off, of course.
