    #27 minutes for 27 years

    Read between the lines, if you’re a player that is. Ultimately, it’s a board who ignored fan protestation for the Benitez appointment and who have basically alienated so many people. Yes, it’s daunting, but Goodison isn’t a player friendly place at the best of times and we’re going back 7-8...

    #27 minutes for 27 years

    Moshiri needs to realise that ignoring the fans, is the equivalent of self destructing. I appreciate the £500m, but not how he’s handled it. Look at Christian Purslow last week, openly writing to the Villa fans about what’s going on. Meanwhile Moshiri is palling down with Jim White, giving...

    #27 minutes for 27 years

    End of the day Dave, these are professionals. It shouldn’t matter if fans walk out, the protest isn’t at the players, it’s at the people who lead the club. The players aren’t good enough, and lack the heart, but they’ve been recruited. If 20,000 fans walking out, makes the players lose focus...

    Ah screw it, I’m in. For every bad koppte behaviour, there’s a good “Kopite Behaviour”, such as being the driving force behind “Twenty’s Plenty”. Protesting their owners and forcing Hicks and Gillett to sell. Yes, they also stand by racists and eradicate any form of bad history they’ve got...

    David Unsworth

    May well be, but if it stops any of our other players going off a cliff, like the George Greens then I’m all for it. Never as a coach though.

    David Unsworth

    I got told by someone reliable that Baxter was in, in a mentoring role, as opposed to a coaching role. If so, I get the thought process, we’ve had lots of players struggle with their rise and the higher money, so might not be terrible. But we’re such a boys club, the growing clamour from some...

    Bill Kenwright

    You had to switch off immediately when white goes “I spent some time with Bill at the weekdn, he’s a great guy” Oh give over. No one cares if he’s great, we don’t want actors, we need winners and he’s a fat, old, liar. Time to go.

    David Unsworth

    Before Jeffers (I know he’s left), Jevons, Ferguson and whatever, Unsworth should be the first one gone. Whoever is monitoring him too, needs to be turfed out too. In Unsworth’s 9 years in charge we’ve.. Spent £15m on players, of which none have made the first team (Markelo, Adeniran...

    Transparency

    Look, straight away, a significant amount of teams have transparency in the league, and their relationships are positive (by large). I look at Brentford, Watford (recently as yesterday, their CEO, praised their fans for their better efforts as a team), Leicester, Leeds, Aston Villa, Crystal...

    Kopite behaviour

    Two young lads were losing their mind pre-kick off in the Lower Gwladys, cause a few lads were having a laugh with “When Rondon scores” chant. “YOURE ALL WOOLS. RATS. GO HOME. ALL YOU WOOLS ARENT WELCOME”. Can I just clarify, who’s in the wrong here? :lol:

    Bill Kenwright

    Yeah, Birch has actually came out and said IIRC and said he advised Kenwright to sell and Kenwright said he wouldn’t. So he felt his role was basically irrelevant, so he got out, and quickly at that too. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/football/2004/jul/17/newsstory.sport2

    You don’t see Werner or Mansour on the radio, do you? We’re at the lowest of the low, and we’ve got this circus continuing like it has been. Just leave it to Brands and get out the media

    Marvellous. Cause throwing money in January has never been an issue, has it? Hi Cenk, Niasse and Walcott.

    Bill Kenwright

    The fella is an actor. He runs theatre, he’s the master of blagging personas. An idiot, a liability. Shambolic really.

    Bill Kenwright

    What does Birch know though, mate? Birch ran, less than 6 months after Kings Dock collapsed. Coincidence? I think not.

    Bill Kenwright

    I remember Trevor Birch being highly regarded. I believe he had been instrumental in getting Abramovic to Chelsea and left and then came to us. He walked out the same summer and the writing was on the wall. I don’t think people actually wanted to take note of Kenwright and his nonsense...

    Bill Kenwright

    He hasn’t though. We have literally protested about him for years. But for every fan who’s been staunchly against him, we’ve had the same idiots who clap him. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but the fellas tenure has had one consistency, and that’s lies, and some people saw through...

    Bill Kenwright

    Not a chance he’s just a number. Regardless, I’m sure he’ll have been influential in keeping Ferguson, Unsworth around and getting DBB in as CEO. The reality is, we can’t grow as a club as long as we’ve got hangers on like Kenwright.

    The fans should be sacked?

    Sack me. If Benitez is getting £6m payout for being sacked, then I’ve had a season ticket 25 years I reckon I must be close to £100m?

    Wayne Rooney New Manager

    OH SWERVE IT WITH THE BOYS CLUB. No Ferguson No Rooney No Unsworth Stop joining the dots. Go and get someone who can fix this. An inexperienced manager who’s just about managed 50 games is not what we need.
