That link doesn't lead to an article

The link does lead you to The Times article but only a couple of lines, then asking you to supposedly sign up for a month's free subscription...

Any way around this without being bombarded with unwanted emails?

Edit - was basically repeating what Billy said.

The bombs they found, let me guess... Krøldrup was among them?

Bramley-Moore Dock, eh? And two porpoises, and twelve bombs.

From what century?

Today we dream of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock but, with Moshiri and Kenwright in charge (on the face of things), the two of them being the closest to human intelligence amongst the mammalian family allegedly leading us, let's not even dare to dream that we'll prosper from the stadium.

I completely refuse to accept that the two who've repeatedly exploded more than 12 mega-expensive bombs, minimum, to damage us throughout 6 years of gross mismanagement, and beyond that for a decade or three, at best, are in any way competent to now find a path to even minimal glory.

Given their ineptitude and Moshiri's gross stupidity in making Kenwright rich beyond his wildest dreams, to his and every fans mega-cost, I regret to say that I expect Everton to remain for the rest of my life (I'm late sixties) on a par with Notts County – if ya know yer 'istory – a founder professional football club in a small city with only one other local rival whose record, since they, like Liverpool, eventually joined us "famous" founders, has totally eclipsed us as even relevant – never mind as a trophy contender.

Still, let some of us continue to apportion all the blame for our horrible performance and position on the never-ending roundabout of managers and DoFs, eh?

After all, that's precisely what the owner and boardroom would recommend, isn't it?

Well, we were promised a Multi-Porpoise stadium. Surely 2 is the bare minimum.

Thanks Alex for the article and Simon for lightening our moods a little in these depressing times while waiting for a striker or two make an appearance. Fat chance as things look at the moment unless of course it means a selection from Januzi, Depay, Adams and other useless deadbeats nobody else wants.

By the way someone on Twitter is saying that PSG still won't release Gana so the will he won't he saga continues.
