Did anyone else see Kenwright driving out of the car park (at the Park End Stand) not more than 5 minutes before kickoff?
I found it a bit surprising no-one else has mentioned it. Any ideas?

Can someone sitting near the Directors Box shed any light?

He is a man that does not run away despite the issues people have with him or the club. Give him some credit, it is very sad to see the level people will go to to discredit him.

So back at ya, Steve. Did you actually see Bill driving away yourself? Or are you making it up, as Paul says??? That would perhaps explain why no-one else has mentioned it.
And how does this suit your cause.... whatever that is?
Perhaps a photo from your cellphone would help at this point... before I delete this entire thread.

Finances are so bad, that in order to raise cash, Kenwright has been moonlighting as childrens entertainer... Whiffo the clown.
I'm told that at 12.40pm last Saturday he rushed to 4-year-old Kyle's surprise party in Norris Green. By all accounts his famous routine, Where everything he touches turns to shite, went down a storm with the under-fives!

I had saw him at City last week; as he was entering the stadium we shouted "Bill, Bill!" to get his attention, he looked around and smiled and put his thumb up, but his face dropped, when I asked him "Where is the Fortress Fund money?" followed by "How much are we for sale for?" Needless to say he didn't answer me but he definitely heard me.

Don't know WHAT to believe now.
In these situations, the only way I can REALLY be sure of the truth (100%!) is to wait to hear what Elstone has to say.
Then I just go with the opposite of that.

I thought my lad had spent a bit too long drinking in the sun when he told me BK had scarpered.
He was at the match so he couldn't have gone far.
Pie dinner from that chippie facing the church a better option to what was on offer in the lounge?

It struck me as very odd behaviour for him to be leaving. It can't be investor related, surely he would have them wined and dined well in advance of kick-off before doing his dramatics to rack up the tension in the box just prior to kickoff. It must not be a TV engagement as it was too late for that, and surely he would walk. It must not be for pie and chips as he'd send out for them, Doddy would volunteer. Family emergency was the best i could come up with, but seeing as he was back before kick-off this seems unlikely.
I was and still am flumoxed. Also, from where i was sat, in line with the Goodison Road stand, I had no chance of seeing whether he came back or not and we never saw him on the big screen. I was just hoping someone else might shed some light on the unusual behaviour.

Who cares where he was going?
Since apparently the george green deal was done just before/at the match, he may have just gone to pick the lad/agent up from nearby.
But really, does it matter? Bill strikes me as being one of the most visible chairman around at games, whether he is there at the start, finish, or not at all, does not matter a jot in the grand scheme of things. I was more bothered about what was happening on the pitch...

Baaa - he might be right of course.
