Docks for Everton
Phil Pellow,Editor of the SATIS? Everton fanzine, is leading the Docks for Everton campaign encouraging fans to express their support of Everton's proposals for a new stadium at Kings Dock
THE CAMPAIGN FOR OUR FUTURE
The Docks For Everton List (so far):
Cynic or Supporter? It's over to you....
THIS NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
Over the next few weeks, the decision makers with regard to the King's
Dock will be schmoozed by all of the bidders. As time passes, many
of them will make up their minds based upon the various impacts made by
supporters of the bids.
Everton's bid for the Kings Dock site is unique, in two respects:
A few of us have formed a team called Docks for Everton (DFE) and we have been beavering away recently putting together an agenda which might help the EFC bid. On Saturday, at Ipswich, a thousand leaflets will be distributed to EFC fans at the game, asking them to write to the decision makers, voicing their support for the EFC bid. The flyer will give all of the addresses for people to write to.
On Saturday 3rd March, 2001, at the home game versus Newcastle United, a much larger leaflet distribution is planned. Click this link to view the leaflet online.
Indications are that this is a close run thing. The difference might just be the impact made by ordinary EFC fans. So, if you're up for the bid, please lend your support.
You can, of course, take the cynical view. Screw the Board – can't stand them; Smith hasn't got a clue; the Admin and organisation at GP is pathetic; and so on... After all, it's cool to be a cynic, isn't it?
The issues about the way the Club is run can wait for another day. Now, the focus must be on trying everything we can to win the bid for the dock. The financial implications for Everton are immense – the difference between small time and big time. Just for once, please put aside the natural inclination to see a half empty glass. Add YOUR name to our list of supporters for the bid, write those letters, and offer to help if you can.
