My First memory of Everton is from the 1952-53 season and I've seen a few ups and downs; my sister goes back to the 1940s. When we chatted last weekend , we agreed that for the first time as Evertonians, we are not upset when the side loses. We've come to expect abject, disorganised, leaderless surrender.

We seem to have lost our 'soul'. Koeman's style was cold and he clearly saw us as simply a jumping-off place to the big European post. Allardyce was never a suitable fit for 'The School of Science' – I remember him as a player and a manager.

Joe Royle and David Unsworth, real Evertonians, have left in despair , Moshiri is a business man - but what does he know about football?

We badly need leadership in the Boardroom and on the field from men who love the club and have a long term investment in it... remember the days of 'The People's Club'? We need that spirit back again – and soon.

We could start by abandoning the new stadium and investing in Goodison Park – our roots and traditions – and build from there. My fear is that, otherwise, we will go in the same direction as owners of other nearby fancy stadiums – Wigan, Bolton Wanderers and Leeds – ie, down!

We need a Match Captain of Intent to kick asses and bawl on whoever needs it! And then we can have a nice Club Captain of Warm Feelings to represent the Club for anything social, saying nice things! The two do NOT go hand-in-hand!

Let Coleman know he's Boss on the field, and always will be backed up! He's a fighter and a winner mentally. Jags is too nice, Rooney is too error-prone with his passes for that role.

Alas,I think it's too late for Goodison Park. As long as the new stadium is as good as it sounds like it'll be, I'll be happy. Let's not forget Villa.

However, you're right, we seem rudderless and need a top to bottom rethink... Not necessarily a clearout, as that might erode any sense of identity.

Next manager is crucial... And I'm torn as to whether Bill going would be good, but as long as Moshiri doesn't white wash everything then I'm confident we can move forward.

If he gets it wrong though, yes there's a real danger we end up like Villa, Leeds, Bolton, Wolves, Oxford, Forest... Accrington Stanley.

We need a new motto: "Never mind about winning anything, just try to stay in the Premier League" – anybody know how to translate that into Latin?
