Safe Hands

Comments (10)

During this time when we are all feeling so good to see the Club and Team progressing nicely, it's worth remembering how it's been achieved.

We only have to look at so many clubs who have sold their soul to the foreign adventure capitalists. Besides putting their clubs in unparalleled debt, most of them are lucky to have an English speaking player. In all of this we can hold our heads high. Fair enough, some clubs fans protested. Not like the other lot who didn't raise a whisper as their club was being hawked around like a prostitute to the Tieyervesttights and the Arabs before finally settling for our make-a-quick-buck friends from across the pond.

While we have steadily progressed, with out bankrupting the club and at the same time have not only managed to keep a British identity but also a scouse one. If a club's not happy behind the scenes it can never progress. The one man we needed to be strong through out these unprecedented times of change, who wouldn't put the almighty dollar above the love he has for his club, was our scouse chairman Bill Kenwright. The man who appointed Davey Moyes, the man who's made money available for players, without doing a Risdale.

Let's forget "Billy Liar" ? it's Long Live King Bill!

I have to agree - I’m well happy with ’Kenners’ at the moment and am happy for him to carry on. That could be the name of a film - Cary on Bill - the hilarious adventures of two black eyebrows and some white hair

Let’s not get carried away with Billy Bullshitter and pocket filler Fred Elliot Wyness, the current state of affairs is more down to DM and the players than anything BK has done.

Dont try to rock a steady ship, 5 wins on the trot lets not start slagging people off its the strongest position we have been in for a very very long time and someone must take credit for it.
BK’s heart is with the club he isnt here for financial gain like the Liverpool yanks.
DM has steadily built a squad over the years that is stronger and now has some depth, a long way from the top yet but on the right road.

What are you on Gavin? Who do you think made the money available? Everyone deserves credit including the board - some people always look for the negatives. In the words of the moronic Bush..........’you’re either with us, or against us. Now watch this drive’.

spot on gavin

The money that was used in the summer was sky money, before that moyes never got backed with money and had to scrape through each transfer window with pennies, the only reason were doing so well is down to moyes and not kenwright.

also why does he only show his face when were doing well, you never hear a peep out of him when results are going badly.

I’m with Gary on this, i’ve always been a big fan of Kenwright and think it’s such a difficult job he’s had to undertake. Throughout everything he’s backed the manager, found finances when he’s not loaded himself and is chairman of a club sitting quite rightly regularly in the top half of the league.

Richard,I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist posting with the team on a good run but using your best mate’s name is a bit naughty isn’t it?Why not invent a whole new identity and then your boss will never know you’re at it again!
But joking apart it’s great to have you back,Mr Dodd.

So we win a few games and Bill gets absolution ,lets forget all the lies hes told us and hey what the hell so hes sold off every asset the club had(goodison park will be the last asset sold)moving us out of the city because he cannot afford to keep us in sorry I doff my hat to Moyes and the players and if the football keeps improving I will apologise for things said about Moyes .But Kenwright can not and indeed should not be trusted his track record is appalling.

We have just witnessed one the best European nights in Everton history, and we are going on about going to a ground outside the city. Did this not make everybody take note this was a fantastic ground, outside of the city walls basically on a retail park... Do any of you think those fabulous Nurnberg fans worry about getting a train for a couple of stops? No, they love their team. So come on blues let's all put things into persective, and hope the New Goodison is half as intimidating as 1FCN stadion.

I’m sorry I must have missed the part where Everton paid off all the Banks so please enlighten me. I can only remember reading that the Banks were prepared to loan more money on the basis of "Planet Hollywood" joining the Board. But if you say Everton are out of debt on the basis of incredible Cup runs in Europe and the League Cup then so be it.
