Can I implore all Evertonians unhappy with the current status quo at Goodison to join "The Peoples Group" both on Twitter and Facebook.
The aim for those who are not aware is to lobby national media journalists to press them to thoroughly investigate the EFC board and expose their incompetence for all to see. Your support is appreciated.
ps: Send as many tweets to journalists as you can... the more they get, the more notice they will take.

I hope these anti-Kenwright movements keep growing and gather pace to finally put some pressure on old melon head.

We already have KEIOC, thepeoplesstadium or whatever it's going to be called (if it still exists), Everton4Change and now 'The People's Group".
I'm going to start one called "The people 4 change but only if the stadium is in our city group" ... Who's with me???

Back to the original point, I'm used to us getting no coverage in the media out here as it's the moneyed clubs that get it all. I challenged a presenter out here (for a News International affiliate) and he claimed it's because "90% of the correspondence from fans is about Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool". I asked him if it had anything to do with 90% of their games selected being those teams, or 90% of the talk on their numerous shows being about those teams, or even most of the former players-turned pundits they use being from those teams...
The way Man City have now gatecrashed this party, but not at the expense of Liverpool, shows how the whole thing is gerrymandered by the Murdoch press.
But I think people old enough to recall should think back to the pre-Prem days. Even when Man U were regularly out of everything by January, they and Liverpool still dominated the media.
Creating pressure groups, or tweeting journalists is all well and good, but you have to be realistic that they are working to an agenda - to increase the value of the product. Chelsea were not a globally recognised team before Abramovich, but they are now because of Sky. Man City for the same reason. The catch 22 is to get that profile you need to achieve, and sustain "success" - and as we all would (some reluctantly) admit, for us that would require money we simply don't have.

Everton have far too many sheeple supporting them that buy into BK's Boys Pen bollocks or relegation as only other option should he or DM go. Change will only ever guarantee one thing and that's change... either way, it's inevitable as change happens; forward planning to ease through changes reduces that risk but will never eradicate it.
Until the sheeple join in or are outnumbered by opposition, and that opposition is joined in a single goal, it'll never even start never mind succeed. I'm very much pro change as I love this club but can see the car crash looming on the horizon and the bugger at the wheel is clueless and blind to it.

Which has a majority of one so far.
What was that Ceasar said... "If all the tribes of Gaul could unite..."

Has anyone seen Dave Prentice's response from pressure on the Echo website?

I don't think joining groups on Fuckbook or Twatter will help at all, mate.
In fact, that's what they want us to do...

More of a piss take.

Maybe some things maybe changing as, not too long ago, they would never have allowed such letters to be printed.
