When Kenwright said he was concerned about the possible cross pollination of his role and Walsh's. I assume he meant negotiating transfers. Kenwright needs to be removed from this responsibility forthwith.

Everton are weak up front, where there is only Lukaku to score goals and in midfield, where there are doubts over the fitness and quality of McCarthy and Besic. I would forget about Gibson, he is usually injured, and why he was given a 2-year contract was a mistake.

What's Tesco Tel doing nowadays?

I wonder who was lead negotiator in the latest transfer window, Walsh or Bill. If it was Walsh, then that lack of experience as DoF and in negotiation might have held us back. A learning curve for him, if so.
If Bill led negotiations, then Walsh will be learning from that oh dear, you might say!

We've scored 8 in 4 games and are unbeaten.
Lukaku never scored any of them, nor any in the previous 11 games at the end of last season in which we scored 9 goals in total.

We probably do need our transfer table technique sorting but let's not forget that we are greatly improved after this window and, if we continue to sign the right players at the right price, then we have the right formula for long term success.

Those he's 'fucked up' in previous years weren't necessarily ever on in the first place and we were probably just having smoke blown up our collective arses because we were potless and never had a cat in hells of landing our targets anyway.
He has been at the negotiating table at least and I don't know if either Moshiri or Walsh can say the same. Difference is now he's got some financial clout behind him.
I may be wrong but I'd certainly have him as a sounding board and for his contacts with a new CEO (don't have anything against Bobby particularly but we need a "war time consigliere" now) making the final calls.
As an aside, it could have been very shrewd of us not to bring in our major targets (Gabbiadinni, Kone, Witsel etc) during the summer window because we will be competing in a much thinner field with agents coming to us now most of the other EPL clubs have done their money.

Maybe Everton have Walsh, Koeman and others who, between them, have clearly defined roles that cover whatever it is that's required.
Then again, maybe they haven't a clue and we're doomed.
Pointless sort of article in some ways.

In the end, it's the player who decides where he wants to go, and the truth is we are not first choice for many players. We could offer them silly money over and above what their worth, but would that be sensible?

Tesco Tel is now the chairman of the budget homewares operator B&M which if we had taken his advice is exactly what we would have got at Kirkby a low cost stadium.
We need a clean sweep of the old regime. Bill has risen like Lazarus and got his old mojo back since he sold half his shares and trousered a nice tidy profit whilst it would appear keeping his ham fists still firmly on the train set.

Moshiri, Kenwright, Koeman, Walsh. There are too many fingers in our transfer pie. The odd man out here is Kenwright. He's done a lot for Everton but he needs to be out of the picture as far as transfers are concerned.
Now maybe Moshiri has indulged him because Kenwright brought him into the club. But there is no room for sentimentality in football. If he's getting in the way of successful transfer outcomes then he shouldn't have a say in them any longer.
