Apparently, courtesy of Bluekipper...
"Everton hosted the latest of their monthly Fans' Forums on Thursday evening.While no doubt the topics mentioned are in some way relevant, I'm not personally sure they would be top of my agenda for discussion with Mr Elstone (or "Bobby" to his BlueKipper mates).
A small group of fans attended September's meeting, which was held in the Brian Labone suite at Goodison Park.
The Forum is designed specifically to allow fans an opportunity to engage with the Club directly to provide feedback and ask questions on a variety of topics.
Chairman was friend of Blue Kipper, Head of Media and Communications Mark Rowan. Also attending were Chief Executive Bobby Elstone, Commercial Director Dave Biggar, Marketing Services Manager Hollie Costigan and Stadium Safety Officer Ray Foy.
Topics discussed during the meeting included away match travel, ticketing, Club communication, Everton in the Community and enhancing the Everton experience.
Fans' Forums are held once a month and are attended by fans representing different areas of the Club's fanbase."
I'm not sure what I despaired of more; the fan's forum itself or the responses to the above the "report" got generally got on the Blue Kipper site.

At least here posts go up and things are discussed whether posters agree or not. As for the forum from the outside it looks like a hand picked few, were your not allowed to ask anything important or that may paint a bad picture of the board.
I wonder if the people and groups attending are given a list of things that are off limits. I imagine Toffeeweb and Michael dont expect a invite anytime soon?

And to say some of the columnists are up their own arses, would be a fucking understatement!
The fans forum, a few hand picked fans, who are probalby told what they can, and can't ask.

Brian I went to one ia bit ago, and certainly I was given no instructions what to ask and what not to. Equally, there was some accurate reporting of the meeting on this site by attendees which evidences that we were not hand picked and that Toffeewebbers (if that is a name) were in no way excluded.

Is it the same fans every time that attend Ian?

I've been to a couple of these and this couldn't be further from the truth. Unlike you to share your opinion only for it to be about as accurate as a watch from Primark, Brian!

It better not be the same old people each time as last time it was Chang and Sandwiches with Chips on the club. Call me cynical but I am open to bribery (joke)
It was a nice tone to set off a good night and I for one would like to go again, I have to agree with the first part of
Marks' response and also completely disagree with Dave.
Just for the sake of completeness, there were a few posts on here of how I saw the one I went to and they seemed pretty consistent

Fuck it playing shite and getting the points is the sign of a good team, and i for 1 wont be complaining. We deserved the points last week and only got 1 so take it and move on untill WBA in midweek.

Some fans forum that would be.
