in that case you have a very short memory. instead of being constantly battling relegation we are now fighting for a uefa cup spot. thats a huge step forward.
The board now seem to have found a real sense of direction and purpose after years of floundering, and this has fired the fans and the team with an optimism that we havenít had for a long time.
as for bk i dont envy him his position. since chelski's takeover football has changed, and maybe not for the better. we can't compete with chelski or manu or even arsenal. and neither can ANY other premiership side.
its a question of a slow and steady improvement to try and develop a side that can compete against the financial giants.
quite frankly if you have to have something as obvious as this explained to you then you really have lost the plot!
So your indication of progress is not fighting relegation??
Well that may well be the sole ambition for you but i have much higher standards obviously the club qualified once for europe..we lasted 4 games..or are so blinded that your memory may be a little short there i think,the last time we where in europe was 1995 if i remember correctly.
The board has a sense of direction?? what direction?? saying we're moving..2 words KINGS DOCK..heard it all before simple as that.
Other clubs are moving past us for the love of god look at pompey sure they'll fall by the wayside but they have backing money,its called deeds and not words.
I do agree though the PL has moved beyond us with the russians money and i'll put good money we'll never win it again in my lifetime,but sadly thats also down in part to the board,we we're big hitters at the inception of the PL now we're merely bit part players and thats down to succseive boards fault at not turning the club into a buisness like the mancs did.
Read the posts on this board the fans arent that fired up as you put it becuase billy liar has bullshitted us all and newer fans will found out his this for themselves soon enough.
You may prefer to stick your head in the sand and think all is well but its not Everton the grand old club of ours is nothing more than mid table fodder nowadys and it makes me sick to the pit of my stomach to say that,but you see i'm a hardend realists and prefer to live in the real world unless massive investment comes into this club and the quicker it does the better,then we'll be the new centuries version of coventry always hanging about the top ten,maybe a season or two in europe every now and again but nothing more.
I've resisted the urge to flame you but i've always thought of this board as a friendly place and sarky comments arent really what i would expect from someone who posts here regularly.
