This year marks the farewell to the magnificent Goodison Park, which has served as the home of The Toffees for over 130 years.

This historic ground has witnessed countless memorable moments, from league triumphs to legendary players gracing its pitch. For Séamus Coleman, Goodison Park has been his professional home since he joined Everton in 2009. The immensely popular right-back, known for his dedication and consistent performances, has never left the club since his arrival. His expiring contract has now been extended, ensuring he will be part of the team for another season.

On the club's website, Coleman expressed his happiness about the extension: "Everyone knows what Everton means to me, and I am very proud and honored to re-sign. I will always give everything for the club and will enjoy every moment. It does feel strange that we are leaving Goodison; that place is special to me and every other Everton supporter. Of course, I want to experience this last season."

The favorite detail about Coleman among the supporters is his transfer fee. Everton bought him in 2009 from Sligo Rovers for sixty thousand pounds, a modest sum that has become legendary among fans. This amount still regularly echoes around the stands of Goodison, a testament to the incredible value Coleman has provided over the years. Considering the number of matches Coleman has played for the club so far (422), this comes down to an investment of 142 pounds per match, around 150 euros. This incredible return on investment highlights how integral Coleman has been to the team’s success and stability.

As Coleman prepares for what could be his final season at Goodison Park, both he and the supporters are looking forward to making it a memorable one. The anticipation of moving to a new stadium brings mixed emotions, but there is a shared hope that Coleman’s final year at Goodison will be filled with triumphs and fond memories. His leadership on and off the pitch has been invaluable, and his legacy at Everton is firmly cemented.

The upcoming season holds special significance, not only as a farewell to Goodison Park but also as a potential closing chapter in Coleman's illustrious career with Everton. Fans and teammates alike will be looking to him for inspiration and strength as they navigate this period of transition. Coleman's story is one of loyalty, passion, and remarkable achievement, making him a true icon of the club.
