Denis Stracqualursi: Everton's cult hero who never stopped trying

Friday 24 November 2017  4 Comments  [Jump to last]
Simon Hart writes that the Argentine was often out of his depth in his short spell but as the suddenly indispensable Oumar Niasse's example this season underlines, Goodison Park loves a trier.
“It wasn't my decision to go to Everton. It was the agent who represented me at the time, who lied to me. He said the club really liked me. It wasn't true but there was money in it for them, but in the end it was the best time of my life.”
“Just knowing that people there still remember me is worth more than any money to me."

What a nice man and a touching reminder, at this bad time, of what our club ought to be about, at least in part: relentless spirit. We'll find it again.

If only half the team had his commitment and humility we'd be in a much better position than we are presently.

I remember Denis being on the ground trying to head the ball away from someone! 200% effort every game. To me that shambles last night was The End!

"Denis Stracqualursi The Independent" gets you the interview Kim (#325).

In it he states, “It wasn't my decision to go to Everton. It was the agent who represented me at the time, who lied to me. He said the club really liked me. It wasn't true but there was money in it for them, but in the end it was the best time of my life.”

Hmm! Is it reasonable to assume Kenwright dealt with this transfer, and if so why were we signing a player we didn't really want? And who are the "them" who benefited money-wise? Not that Boys Pen Billy would ever be involved in any financial shenanigans of course, him being an innocent virgin island in a sea of bent fuckers screwing football fans for all their worth.

Still, hope we can now desist with Kenwright having anything to do with transfers from now on or, better still, anything at all to do with the club.
