Would love to see that Fordy:-

"Sorry Mark but I can't accept this life changing role as I'm trying desperately to win the respect of a random poster on an internet forum & I should stand aside & let a professional show us how it's done".

As rewarding as your utmost respect might be it probably carries a zero cash value, like the tickets at a fairground 

 He wasn't forced to apply. 

It isn't as farcical as you make out to have hoped that he thought to himself.

"I'm still relatively new to the coaching game. I had a fairly unsuccessful spell as caretaker at Oldham and a so-so spell as caretaker here. The owner wants someone who'll guarantee a Top 6 Championship finish. That isn't me. Yet."

Downsy. The appointment where the club started slowly to fall from grace. But seriously, very strongly dislike Downsy. Maybe because he could be Lee Tomlin’s brother but probably mostly because he seemingly knows FA about football and is generally just annoying. Idk I may be alone but never got why he was appointed

He’s just dead behind the eyes. There’s nothing there. They’ve tried to tick some of their wokeness quota in appointing a gay bloke, while completely forgetting about the personality required to carry a role like this. Also, isn’t he from oxford or something

So much anger.  Incredible really

A drone roof film announcing Holden would have its upsides.   

Get behind Deano if that’s the case. Nobody wanted Cotterill and few wanted LJ. They both progressed the club.  Most fans wanted SOD, Coppell and McInnes

hey??

Is there a more pointless club than Everton? Never going to be top 6, never in a relegation fight, never going to win a cup and forever in there neighbours shadow, great fans though

Pointless was probably the wrong word, I was trying to quote a couple of Evertonians I met recently who were totally cheesed off particularly when they see the likes ofLeicester, Wolves & Sheff Utd leap-frog them 

I was going to quote Leicester and Wolves in my response to you. You have taken one helluva beating over your remark already so I will just leave it at that. :)

The league vote today might play some role in the decision making. 

Whats the vote for?

As others have said.. If it were to be Holden, which it won't, then there would be no drone and no fanfare. Only silly people would do such a thing.

Tbf I know it’s a Small small chance but what if when all those rumours of Hughton agreeing was true and he’s signed but we’ve just been waiting to announce or get the paperwork done 

There is, I would suggest, a greater chance of Chris Hughton than Dean Holden. And by some wide margin. Let us just wait and see.

That's horseshit and offensive you should be ashamed

Thanks, if you're a betting man get on Everton to finish 10th next season and to get knocked out of the cup in the 5th round 🙂

Sacked Tim Shires and got Downsy. Hilarious really. I definitely see where you're coming from. Mark Ashton re appointed in December 2015. Tim Shires sacked that summer, Downsy then appointed. Then this Lisa Knights appointed as social media manager or whatever she does and from what I hear it's only bad things about her.

There was a drone over the ground earlier apparently- I've now seen photos but they could have been from any time - and MacGregor seemed to think a kit reveal was happening. I am not in the know.

I've been told that they are going to announce that the old Sunday Market is going to re-open

Don't rule out the drone and fanfare because of that....there's a strong argument that only silly people would appoint Holden over Hughton in the first place.

You accused the man of being from Oxford. You heartless bully.

In fairness he is!!!!
Also, in fairness to Downsy, he hates sport but loves broadcasting. After the night of the long knives when he was removed from the breakfast show in favour of that bloke Cam Kelly (who has all the charm and appeal of the Boston strangler) The Sat am sport show was the only show on offer to him.
My band put on a couple of charity events (The Wrecking Ball 1, 2 & 3) in aid of testicular cancer and he compared them FOC. Great bloke, and up for a laugh.

I'm not downsy's biggest fan.

Started off by asking little kids which prem team they supported. 🤦‍♂️

And he's just so cringe. When robins tv is on and he's talking, i go and do something else. Cant listen to him

Bring back Adam Baker or someone who supports the club. Too cringe and corporate.

This place was in meltdown when cotts was appointed. Selective memory nog.

Sure is, anyway, not that it matters or relevant to his job abilities one bit, he’s just not a football man.

on this subject, I’m convinced one of our players is also, but I’ll keep that to myself.

Yep i was pissed off.

Not because i didnt think he would do well in league one, but i never had any confidence in him in the championship.

But fair play to SL, he played a blinder. Gave him a chance once we were up and once it was obvious, that he wasnt good enough, he got rid. Timed it perfectly.

I just wonder if they might not do any announcement,  Holden was appointed as caretaker until further notice. They might just stay quiet and let him carry on.

Fwiw, I don't want Holden, Hughton is my preference. 

Bristol City thing
