I heard today that JJB have announced the closure of 72 stores nationwide. In my opinion they were providing a pathetic service to EFC as it was but now I can see it getting harder and harder to walk into a store to buy our merchandise.
Does anyone know if we can opt out of the conttact and open up another megastore? Or even a market stall would be better! Thank the heavens for buying online, eh!

Some people would add Moyes to the list, but i still believe he is a decent manager. Although he should never have made Phil Neville club captain. A decision that has always baffled me. He is useless. What attributes does he have? I cant think of a single one. I know weve had a decent season. But these people will not take us to the next level. We need to aim to be the best. Otherwise whats the point?

Like my local one - on the day of this seasons home kit launch, they had one small poster in the window and about half a dozen shirts on a rail stuck in a corner. Almost out of sight behind the rail after rail of the usual suspects kit.
How much are we paying this buffoon to look after our commercial interests?!!!
Bully - it’s time to clear out your desk!!!

I recently went into my local store and when I asked the store manager why there were 3 times as many liverpool kits from young toddlers to adults, I was told that it was because Liverpool sell a lot more than Everton and it is common business sense. He also had a smile on his face, I wonder who he supports!!

Stupid idea anyway giving the contract to JJB, why build a new store in town and close it down within a year or two?
Then again due to the t’internet I suppose a lot of shops are suffering.

I am afraid IMO the current board are light years away from what is needed. Only DM seems to have a plan. There is no executive plan and operations are still pathetically run (Marketing and media poorly dealt with, ticket and travel fiascos, transfer sagas).
Smoke and mirrors will only get you so much time and I am afraid that time has come. Success on the pitch (DM) has disguised inadequacies in the boardroom and that is now a major crossroads for EFC in the light of the most important decision the club has ever faced(The Stadium issue).
BK and his mate have to go sooner rather than later.

Nice to see a thread about JJB include people having a go about Phil Neville as usual every topic goes the same way

What sort of supporter do you call yourself? What on earth do Phil Neville, Tony Hibbert, Lee Carsley, Leon Osman, Andy Johnson, Victor Anicebe -- all having reasonable and, in the case of the last four, good seasons as part of Everton’s best campaign in 20 years got to do with the failing of JJB support? Honestly, if you can use something completely unrelated as a stick to beat our team I wonder why you bother. What a bitter and unnecessary post.
As for JJB, don’t they give us a guarenteed figure every year to sell our stock. If they’re not making money on that then that’s their problem, not ours.
Some of you need to get a life, you really do

RE: Lee Penswick comments are you real? Ok some of these players have their shortfalls but hopefully we are going to get the 5th position with our highest ever points, what would you have settled for at the start of the season?! Remember Vic in Europe!!!

Why is it that all player but Lescott is wearing the England jersey, either home or away (or an older design)?
Anything to do with JJB? Clattenburg? As an Everton fan you notice these things!
