Blue Union Statement: Protest details

The Blue Union met with representatives from Merseyside Police this afternoon and have been given the green light to stage a peaceful protest march prior to Saturday’s game at Goodison Park against Aston Villa.

We will be congregating on the council ground on Spellow Lane, fifty yards behind the Everton One megastore, at 14:00pm with a view to marching down Goodison Road to the directors entrance shortly afterwards.

The Blue Union’s passion for the club and for the team simply cannot be brought into question despite the best efforts of our detractors. We totally subscribe to the view of giving our full support to the players and to the manager and we urge all Evertonians to cheer our team on to victory.

Everyone who is part of The Blue Union continues to support the team and the manager, but we oppose stagnation and we promote the concept that it’s time for a change.

The aim of The Blue Union is simple, it’s not to get Bill Kenwright out, it’s certainly not some mindless attempt to sack the board; its aim is to promote the concept of allowing the CEO to be left to concentrate on reducing costs, developing our revenue streams and repairing the relationship with the fanbase whilst leaving the board to appoint a fully autonomous group of professional individuals who can effectively develop and implement a strategy that will identify and sell the club to a buyer who can demonstrate an ability and a genuine desire to take the club forward on both a commercial and football level. The Blue Union will be publishing an open letter to Mr Kenwright in the coming days.

It is imperative to stress that our protest will be a peaceful one; and anyone who intends on compromising the credibility of the protest is simply not welcome.

We have a batch of limited edition Blue Union t-shirts that are available to purchase on Saturday for a £5 donation as well as the popular amber and blue protest scarves that are priced at £6. Proceeds from all merchandise will be reinvested directly into funding The Blue Union’s future endeavours.

The Evertonians in attendance at The Blue Union’s public meeting demonstrated that they will no longer accept the stagnation of the club and are ready and willing to rise as one.

It’s time for change. It’s time for protest.

The Blue Union

    Nice to see your aim is not to get Bill Kenwright out but just to find a buyer ? Sorry still trying to get my head around that one
    Are you a charity or are you paying taxes on your sales profits ?
    I am no happier than you about the situation but I am so sorry I think you are going about it the wrong way
    Your boss doesn’t tell you the ins and outs of all his deals so why should the club , YES I love Everton .F.C but we don’t own it and hitting them with a big stick is not the correct way Spend your efforts on finding a buyer by all means but please dont divide the supporters as you are doing -me for one abhor your current policy
    Yours in hope

    INRATS.

    A 50yard protest march? You fatties could do with starting a bit further back, frankly.

  5. Garry Borje says:

    I don’t normally go to the match but will be making the big effort to join you guys in this wonderful protest before settling in the Brick to watch us beat the Villa! COYB!

    • Bluewooster says:

      So you’re protesting the financial state of the club then spending your money to watch the game in the alehouse?

      I seriously hope you’re taking the piss.

  6. So you’re going to walk 50 to 100 yards down a road at 2pm, along with other match-goers. I can see your ‘support’ being bolstered there. That should help your next press release. Has Jay McKenna been consulted on your latest strategy?

    Take your kopite behaviour and your kopite Liver Bird scarves elsewhere. You’re an embarassment.

  7. paddyryan says:

    Nice one 2 o clock down goodison rd isn’t that about the time most fans are getting the ground anyway so you’ll have fans there who don’t actually support your group. here’s a suggestion why don’t you do the protest after the game at about 5.15 when people who really want to support your group will stay behind and those who don’t will be gone…

    • Karen says:

      paddyryan – no way will they do that – it will give a true figure of who supports them and not add 1000s to it.. Hope someone can record how many go back to the pub rather than into the ground.

    • Dave Snakey says:

      Although I m not pro the march I have no problem with anyone caring so much for the club.My thoughts are a post match protest would have been more preferable as we need our players focus to be on the pitch and I cant help but think this will distract them.Respect to you for acting on your passion for the club anyway.

  8. Richie hughes says:

    Call yourself evertonians?? Leave protesting to kopites. Its not the everton way. Get behind the team and stop whingeing.

  9. PooUnion says:

    Ha Ha Ha!! This is the most pointless ‘protest’ ever. I bet Kenwright is shitting himself in the knowledge that a few hundred fat mongs are going to walk 50 yards that they would walk anyway and do a little bit of bitching and whining.

    I bet you’ll barely be noticed inside or outside the ground.

    Oh and by the way – the proceeds of those cringe-worthy t-shirts, where are they going? Are you going to donate it to the club to help the dire-straits the club is in? Or better yet, to charity?

    You fucking biffs speak for the minority. The rest of us are Evertonians. We support the club, whatever happens.

  10. cheet says:

    So sad to see a very famous and very proud Club being brought down by the BU to the level of the of their RS brothers. Have you got some Yanks to rescue us too? Shame on you all who have anything to do with this shite.
    Protest march at 2pm match day?
    Goodison Rd will be packed with REAL EVERTONIANS going to the game who wont want FA to do with you knobheads though! Nice one.

  11. dave jones says:

    You lads are proper helmuts, we are skint, kenwright is trying to sell the club and that is it end of. I do think that elstone and ian ross the pr guy are bell ends though and should be more honest with the fans. We are skint though boys your “peacefull” protest makes no sense. What are you going to chant ” WHAT DO WE WANT, NEW OWNERS” ffs boys sort this kopite rubbish out its embarrising are squad of 14 or 15 is decent and of course we need new blood be we cash for that> i hope that will come soon but until then boys just support your club the best you can. FTRS

  12. jason wilkie says:

    fuckin` imbeciles. let`s march 50 yards to Goodison when the majority of REAL supporters are getting to the ground so it looks like loads of people are with your pathetic cause. Grow up,go the game and get behind our beloved team. Do you honestly think your shit march will bring in investment ? if you do, your fkn deluded.

  13. Tommy says:

    I’m sure the new players will be impressed with your ‘protest’. Just for the record, I’ve been a season ticket holder for 26 years and you don’t represent me. I’m sure your ‘protest’ will have potential buyers queuing up around the ground after it, but I won’t be on it. Good luck, but sorry, I feel embarrassed by it, it’s Kopite behaviour
