As you are all probably aware, I have been one of BK's biggest critics on here and will only be happy when he has gone. He is slowly but surely killing our club. I went to his facebook page and mailed him the folowing. If enough people do this, he may take notice, but please if you do ? be polite!! Here is a copy of my mail:

Mr Kenwright,

I realise that Everton Football Club means a great deal to you but you are slowly loosing the support of the fanbase.

Our Club is dying under your Chairmanship, we need major investment in order to progress. You cannot take this great club any further, John Moores must be turning in his grave at the state of the club.

Please resign as Chairman and sell up and go.

Another True Blue

Kenwright would rather drop a division than give up on being 'Mr Everton'.

Mr Ego trip will not give up his position. He has lied for years about investment. I am interested to know what do Earle and Woods do all day to support our club?

Try and spell 'losing' correctly. There are not 2 o's in it.

( Cue 2 Ronnies sketch......)

There's nothing like a badly written letter to convince the person in receipt of it they are dealing with an idiot.

On the subject itself, I think even he agrees, but WHO is the person who is going to come in? I'm not saying there is nobody because I really don't know. I'm just curious who you think would come in and what may happen in say 5 or 10 years time if they then wanted to sell. Are you suggesting we come a billionaire's plaything for evermore or do you think that a Fans' investment scheme in tandem with a Board of Directors and main shareholder is the answer?

Good idea, Steve. Thanks for the effort.

It worries me that this thread has received seven responses so far in comparison to the much frequented anti-Moyes thread.

The point here is to pressurise Kenwright, help to dispell the media myth and alert potential investors.

Kenwright has saddled the club with debt, Moyes (as shown yesterday by yet another two of his signings) has and will continue create capital for the club.

What is the average age of a an Evertonian these days? So much respect for power...

Christopher #8, agree totally.

It's easy to boo Moyes and the players off the pitch or kick off on a radio phone-in or have a go behind our key boards. It's not so easy to stand up and speak out against Kenwright and actually be successful in romoving him but it can be done!

Well done, am totally in agreement. Unfortunately not enough of the fanbase us willing to stand up against him. Even those that complain on here. Mailings like that and a protest at matches are what is required.

Moyes is annoying me but until his hands are untied and he is given a real chance we will always be saying 'what if' under his reign.

I have thought for a couple of seasons now, and been proved wrong, but I think Moyes will walk this summer if he has no financial support from the board!

Who the hell does he sell to?

I'd rather have an "Evertonian lovie" than a "Porno king" or a group of ugly chicken killers sat in the stand... Abramovic and the Manc Arabs are the only serious investors in clubs at the moment. The rest are all weirdos and will disappear leaving huge debt as soon as the Sky deal collapses, which it inevitably will.

Yes let's all write to BK and tell what we feel coz he's bound read them!!! Get real!!

Were skint so get used to it as there's no sugar daddy coming over the horizon just yet. Nor will there be anytime soon. BK is embarrassing a lot of the time with his luvvie ways and quips but rather him that some clueless chicken pluckers or porn king!!

And don't forget the worldwide recession ain't going to encourage and prospective investors or buyers. BK is going nowhere.

Love him or hate him, David Moyes is one of the most sought after and respected managers in the Premier League. He could walk into any club in the Premier League... probably apart from Spurs, Man Utd (who will take him after Sir Alex goes) and Arsenal. He would get those wages and more too.

And to be honest, if I had built something up as he had done, I wouldn't watch it all crumble as some fat bloke holds me back. I would push him away and walk.

Oh and all the bollocks about the recession.

There are people in the world who would buy into us, if they were only given the opportunity.

Birmingham, Blackburn, West Ham, Leicester City are just 4 teams that have been taken over in these hard times. Whilst they may not be in much better league positions than us they are all giving their managers a chance to put things right by showing their money. And it just proves that there are people willing to buy football clubs.

Its the same dross every time:

Peter Johnson - he's been gone over a decade, BK was on HIS board, didn't make much difference and also DIDN'T put the club in record debts and in a position where we have to ditch first team players from the smallest squad in the EPL only to be told we can't even afford the wages of a loan player, not a replacement a fucking loan player

Porno Kings, Icelandics, Dodgy Foreigners, etc, etc, etc - West Ham look likely to land a brand new stadium from the Olympics with £40m backing from a local council and of all those other dodgy owners can you name one of them that has a net spend of £0.00 over the last few transfer windows and a few of them are sitting pretty ahead of Everton in the league right now

Let's get onto that recession, how about alienating the second largest portion of your income; your fanbase JUST before the season ticket renewals are due - late company return for last year, a silence from the blue rinsed ponce that is as big an embarrassment as his bullshitisms and the knowledge we can't even afford a loan player's wage whilst we sit near the foot of the table. no doubt you'll get some blaming the fans choosing to fuck Billy Liar's regime into touch by refusing to renew as the reason we finally went bust when he's been quietly doing that for the last decade or 24/7 as he prefers to call it.

Andrew Lawrenson. This joke called Kenwright is fucking WORSE than Peter Johnson.

It has to be the lameist excuse trotted out for the many failings of BK.

Peter Johnson...Those were the days..He promised a world class manager after Mike Walker and we ended up with Howard Kendall for the third time ...It will never happen again he promised after the Wimbledon miracle, the following season Chelsea kept us up by beating Bolton on the last day after we failed to beat Coventry at home...Built a single tier stand at the Park end, because we would be moving to a World class new stadium within the next ten years...Forced Walter Smith to sell Dacourt, Materazzi and incredibly D Ferguson the day after sitting in the stands watching us beat Newcastle...
Talk about Billy Liar!
Thats why a lot of fans with long memories are slightly nervous to say the least, when it comes to talk about a man who is undoubtedly an Evertonian being forced to sell the club to the highest bidder.

Karl Jones - ."..It will never happen again he promised after the Wimbledon miracle, the following season Chelsea kept us up by beating Bolton on the last day after we failed to beat Coventry at home"

The Wimbledon and Coventry survival games were 4 seasons apart and Peter Johnson didn't take over until after we survived against Wimbledon

Karl, Johnson didn't replace Walker with Kendall mark 3,it was Joe Royle who replaced Walker.

He didn't force Smith to sell Dacourt and Matterazi as they were sold well AFTER he resigned as chairman.

Also the plans for the Park End were drawn up well before Johnson took over.

Craig ( #16 ) I'll give you that Moyes maybe one of the more respected managers in the prem, but one of the most sought after, how do you come to that conclusion? I have never once heard ( Apart from rumours ) of any club who were looking for a manager, make any attempt to get Moyes. You can't say he is the most sought after without having evidence to back it up, or maybe it is just your opinion that other clubs would want him?

" Man utd, who will take him after sir Alex goes " Again, unless you have insider knowledge at Man u, how do come to that conclusion? Are you basing it on, once again, rumours, and because some pundits say he could do the job? My other half is a Man u fan, along with her family, and the consensus amongst Man u fans they know and speak to, is that the Man u job is to big for Moyes, and the thought of Moyes taking over would be a joke.

Karl you really didn't do to well with the facts did you, Ferguson was sold before the Newcastle game, he didn't play and we were drinking with Duncan's old man opposite in the Winslow who was disgusted as was Duncan who made it clear he didn't want to go.

Brian, all rumours are made out of something.

Constant, consistent rumours do have some truths.

Anyway, I do have some 'inside knowledge' as you put it, that Aston Villa made a serious approach for David Moyes earlier this season (when O'Neill left). Convenient as it may sound, I am not at liberty to disclose this I am afraid.

I can also see how rumours of links to the Scotland job and Celtic would have an element of truth (no facts to back this one up!).

And finally, I believe that Sir Alex Ferguson himself has stated that David Moyes could be the next Man Utd manager.
