As a season ticket holder from Northern Ireland, I find myself bemused each time I travel to Liverpool Airport at the lack of our name about the place. It has been brought up on here before about the lack of nous from our club promoting us etc, but I find it quite alarming that at our own airport we are not mentioned at all.
Outside the main building, the Red Shite have a huge poster board up advertising stadium tours and ticket prices etc, and inside have many merchandise on sale.
They may well have more supporters than us around the world but in Northern Ireland, Everton have the biggest single membership in a supporters club than any other side in England. It may not be such a big deal to some but for me it's our city as much as theirs, and if we can't even promote our name properly in the city, and in an airport were thousands of tourists etc come through each week, then the club is as badly run as I feared.

Also we haven't won anything in close to a decade so the posters would look a little dated if they put in the actual "winners" of something.
Plus our tour will most probably be crap anyway, with our coach breaking down and the food stone cold and the drinks warm.

The Liverpool One store is one such thing due to the stick the club received, they got this store going and now finally we see the dickheads getting our new kits out ready for the summer holidays ? we normally bring them out in time for winter ? and no pink, this again was down to the stick from the fans.
Maybe it is about time they started speaking to the supporters more, but if he cannot be arsed with shareholders meetings, he certainly won't with a few pub-going blues.

Did Paul McCartney ever show that he liked Everton? (A genuine question, by the way.) This is not lack of imagination by marketing at Everton, it is lack of fundamental skill.

We are in negotiations with Liverpool Airport and hope to conclude those conversations on Friday. We then will achieve your objective of having a presence in the building, both advertising and retail.
The more we speak out, the more will be done.
