If All of This Was Easy, It Wouldn’t Be Worth Doing

Paul The Esk
Lessons learned, expensive mistakes... time for a re-boot. Nothing worthwhile ever comes easy. If it did, it wouldn’t be worth doing.

Time for Boldness

Paul The Esk
"Being bold de-risks, being timid increases risk and reduces the prospects for success. Mr Moshiri, time to be bold in every sense."

Kicking the Can Down the Road

Paul The Esk
This is an opportunity to be bold, not only in terms of capacity, physical features and design and pricing structures but in the whole approach to hosting a football match.

Goodison, its legacy and what should we take to Bramley-Moore?

Paul The Esk
Ensuring that we protect the essence of Everton when we leave, not only at our new home but back in L4 as well.
