So come on, let's hear it, let's see them CVs for Bills job. I?ve read some great articles on here with what seem great ideas for the club to attract investment and better ways to carry out the day-to-day running of the club. Me, I?ve never run anything on the scale that is EFC; it?s an immense under taking for anybody, including exceptional individuals like Sir Terry Leahy... but that?s it, see; it's not just Bill who runs EFC ? it?s a massive team effort from the fans to the playing/coaching staff to the girls who flog pies at half time at Goodison.
I know he?s the figurehead for all things blue and he is not exempt from criticism. Sometimes he leaves himself wide open for attack but how many of us can honestly say we would welcome back the days of Agent Johnson at the helm of the good ship Goodison? I would never stand for a self-confessed scumbag red having anything to do with my beloved blues, no matter if he had more money than the Catholic Church and Microsoft put together. I sleep much easier at night knowing that we have a blue at the helm, even knowing he doesn?t have the money-making clout of the house of Saud.
I believe he does have the best interests of all blues at heart, and most of all the interests of the club. So remember this next time you're slagging him off; this is a man who nearly ruined himself financially to wrestle the club off scumbag Johnson in the hope that one day he could hand over the baton to someone who fits the bill (no pun intended) of what we all want ? someone who knows what the club means to thousands of individuals who do not have the first idea what it takes to run a washing machine ? never mind a football club. But any takers please submit your CV after this post and I?ll see what I can do!
Reds, Mancs, car washers and dolites need not apply...

Not many of us may have run a business the size of EFC but what anyone who runs any business will tell you is that effective leadership means communication and honesty. People are more likely to follow voluntarily if they are made to feel part of the ?business? and it?s decisions and are able to understand what is happening and why. Leadership isn?t telling people that we?re doing something, won?t keep you informed on progress, we?ll ask you when it?s all sorted but your opinion won?t matter because we?ve decided. Until the attitude from the club to the fans alters then the attitude from the fans to the club won?t. If you?re happy for your opinion to be worth nothing to the club that?s your prerogative but I still see it as OUR club not Bill and Bully?s.
