I see our very own mouthpiece Robert Elstone was in a love-in with Ian Ayres yesterday. I admit I was not actually there, however, from what I have heard and read, it appears yet again we were put in our place as the little brother listening to what our big brother had to say.
Obviously our Bobby hasn't taken onboard the outcome of the DK inquiry as it seems he's still of the opinion that getting into bed with some huge retailer on land ? who knows where ? is the way to go. Goodison apparently, and contrary to many studies, is totally unsuitable for redevelopment.
Ayres talked about our neighbours expanding, more than at present, into the Asian market. Bobby reckons we're getting involved with some Chinese deal, probably selling our naming rights to some takeaway in Shanghai....
It might be adviseable to EFC not to share the same platform with those from the Dark Side cos, regardless what it's about, we always seem to come off severely chastened and second best.
Will we ever be regarded, or allow ourselves to be treated as equals???

If there's coat tails, we'll ride on them. Otherwise we're static.

Regardless, fuck no. The nickname and the badge *do* signify where we're from, our history and our heritage. One of the most special things about the club is how we (as fans) truly value that heritage.

Kids would love him!
(nb: and it would be particularly apt with a Chairman, board and a manager who don't have any, yet are constantly dropping them).
