One man and his dog? Make your own mind up…

Everton’s hierarchy has always had problems with numbers; there was the £30m ring fenced for the Kings Dock stadium that turned out to be a figment of somebody’s theatrical imagination, the £50m from Tesco that turned out to be little more than a stage illusion and of course there’s the managers transfer budget which has been the square root of nothing for the past couple of years.

Yesterday, Everton’s Fan Liaison Officer, Graeme Sharp, whose job it is to improve communications and relations with the fans told the media that the Blue Union protest was attended by one man and his dog. Evertonians will of course be eternally grateful to Graeme for his unerring ability to see the back of net; these days it appears he can’t see past the end of his nose as the above photograph shows it was very well attended.

The Blue Union’s second march was a great success as it attracted the massive media attention that their campaign needs and allows very frustrated Evertonians the opportunity to vent their anger at the current board’s horrendous tenure of our great club and refusal to consider bringing some much needed professionalism into what has been revealed as a club being run like a kindergarten.

At the conclusion of the march one very well known Evertonian, and former shareholder, stated that after over forty years of watching Everton home and away, as far away as Thailand, he wouldn’t be setting foot in the ground until the present board had left; he joined the 6,000 stay away fans that are protesting with their feet and contributing to a possible £3m reduction in matchday turnover for the year.

    In reply to your recent posting . the comments regarding the unamed shareholder and his decision to absent himself from future Everton games .

    It concerns me that you appear to take some solace in the fact that the unamed absentee and the 6000 others that have voted with there feet your figure not mine and the loss of £3 million pounds of much needed gate receipts , money that my club cannot afford to loose.

    Once more ” The Poeples Group ” show themselves to be short sighted and continue to do harm to the good name of my club.

    Let me end with a note of caution your desire to remove the chairman the board and maybe the tea lady …………… LETS BE CAREFULL WHAT WE WISH FOR .

    Agreed John,

    I’d love to see how many The BU could assemble on a non-match day. There’s part of me wishing a Venkys-style takeover of our wonderful club, if only to show these fools that the grass is not always greener.

    An idea to start an online petition was mooted over the weekend. I think it is an excellent idea. It will demonstrate the strength of opinion either way.

    I see you all prophesing the demise of Mr Kenwright.

    I’ll be happy when we’re taken over so the fella can put his feet up, he hasn’t done everything right, but has he done so much to warrant this attack now?

    We have now got Moyes saying our target is 40 points. I don’t think anyone can argue with his realism. five years ago after playing in the Champions League our target was the Champions League. In five years we have gone from Chapion League contenders to contenders for relegation. Thats why the crowds are down and wont rise until something happens. i happen to think that Moyes, on a pound to pound basis is the best manager in the Premiership. He did not choose to sell Pienaar, Beckford. Yakubu, Arteta, Lescott, Neill, McFadden. replacements we paid £3 million for Distan. We have taken in circa £50 million if transfers fees yet only spent £3 million. Where has this “unknown” amount gone as it certainly hasnt gone on players.
    Sunderland have sacked Steve Bruce, they are looking for a manager. Would any one blame Davey for jumping ship, I for one wouldn’t especially when you consider that historically he is very reluctant to buy in the January window because players who are sold then are not as the same quality that are available in the summer. So any one could promise the earth but its not a cert he’ll buy. I think this is another pile bullshi to put with the rest at the bottom of the garden. .
