I'm off to Germany Monday to watch our friendly against Werder Bremen. I'm going as I'm not sure when we will play European football again as the the way our club is run baffles me.
I don't want to post another entry about Kenwright etc as I'm unsure as to what is the best way forward for our club. I always have a go at BK and get fed up of no new players, merchandising, lack of communication with fans etc but then I look at other clubs which have been taken over and have nearly been ruined because if it... Portsmouth, Birmingham, Leeds etc, so I suppose I'm on the fence.
What I want to do is get a banner made for Germany which isn't a direct attack on Kenwright but more of "We want answers" kind of message which will hopefully get seen by BK and hopefully the media. Something a bit witty with a strong message.

My young cousin was lucky not to be killed by that prick, and some of his friends died. It's been bugging me a bit.

My idea for a banner would include maybe a message to the effect any players they want to loan out !! Or on a political line " If only Obama was an Evertonian". That's basically cos his Election slogan was " Yes We Can". Mind you he has financial problems himself - so perhaps not !!
Sidetracking a bit - we may not be flashing the cash but there seems to be some dire news re finances at Birmingham City. And not wishing to put the mockers on things re Jags - it seems to me that Arsenal have had months to sort out a) Fabregas' future b) Their Centre Back problems. They haven't done much yet - I wouldn't be too happy if I was a Gooner.
Back to the banner - I think the admission prices for the Bundesliga are much cheaper - so I would have something along the lines of " Can we have the same ticket prices as you". I have to admit I haven't checked Werder's prices but looking at Bayern, Schalke and Borussia Dortmund I think they have some cheaper tickets than the average Premier League prices - so I am assuming Werder are similar.
My local team is Lincoln City - their cheapest prices are £18- I haven't been in ages as I refuse to pay that amount. Rumour has it they will charge the same prices having been relegated from League Two ( Division 4 as I still like to call it)
So I would make my banner an attack on the Premier League and the financial greed of the game in England - compared with Germany where they seem to take more notice of the fans.

Its a little remark that seems to allude to more than just an aesthetic problem regarding a wall...

"There are more questions than answers?"
"Are you watching this space" with an arrow pointing to a space below.
"Invest or Sell"
"Where's our Dixie?" or "Put Dixie back" "We want our Dixie back" "Bring Dixie back" theme since they moved his statue to knock a hole in the wall.
A picture of the hole in the wall with BKs face filling the hole and the words "Just Another Prick in the Wall"

Deadset, we definitely have some 'out of the square' thinkers here and have not had a good laugh in ages... and if I see at least 5 out of the however many slogans that have been quoted on here during the premier league season... I'll streak down the Manly strip - cheers from Sydney!!

Kenwright's face imposed on King Edward
Mel Gibson with blue face ( Prince Rupert's tower detailing obviously visible ) shouting "Freedom"
Lord Grantchester face imposed on Robert the Bruce with the slogan "If you would only lead us against him we would follow"
"Oi Grantchester, get Bill out and then get your fecking chequebook out! You're a fecking billionaire for fecks sake."

39 Posted 27/07/2011 at 13:44:21
Whilst we don't appear to have any ''irons in the fire'' to kickstart the new season we can always hope that there are some pleasant surprises in the form of Gueye, Barkley and Vellios etc.
40 Posted 27/07/2011 at 13:41:41
EVERTON FC, the City's originals.

But you'd need to ask Bill Drummond before you get it made.
43 Posted 27/07/2011 at 14:07:09
But it could be taken as an instruction... which might be unfortunate for you Alan (OP)...
44 Posted 27/07/2011 at 14:23:42

"We do actually sell merchandise!"
