A lady who understands Everton.

From what I hear, she has fantastic principles too.

Welcome DBB to the top table. You should add some insight into the proceedings and also may be able to stop old bumbling Bill from picking off the bobbles from his cardigan while Sascha is bossing the quarterly meeting, passing various motions to cease the Werthers original contract and Monday night showings of Phantom and Carousel.

Communication and PR are the next aspects of the club I want to see improve.

By the way, our much maligned ex manager and his wife has also been very active in this side of our club.

It seems we are actually getting a better blend of personalities involved at the top level now, not just the old boys club it once was.
I liked the sound of the new Russian fella too. Seems like the sort which wouldn't take any bullshit from Kenwright and Elstone.

Now the shackles of Green and Earl are gone, things are moving along.

How very, very true. Far better to have an able, proven, achiever on our board, purely upon merit, rather than anyone there through some antiquated system of "duty & privilege".
Two very creditable points:
1) DBB's track record has seen her area of influence return Everton's reputation as innovators in the world game.
2) Yes. In Bill & Jenny, Evertonians really have leading Evertonians who have continually carried through very noble works for people who have greatly benefitted. (I could cite a very laudable very longstanding example; however, to do so would be unnecessarily intrusive and entirely against their genuine and generous spirit.)

I like the importance placed on building with the community I like the principle of building a support structure through which the manager will work rather than the manager being the centre of all things.
We are building a robust club that does not just depend on one or two men rather like Arsenal perhaps?
