That is what Martin keown described us as on five live.

I think it is a perfect way to describe us and could be a fantastic tag line/ motto for some of our protest groups!

I summarised the main quotes in another thread - it was Ian McGarry who called us "the club that time forgot":

No-one really put their finger on the pulse of the problem, mostly the same things we've been hearing for the last couple of summers. Prentice had some decent input, still seems bemused to last week's reaction.

Ian McGarry: "the club that time forgot",

Martin Keown: "almost good news" no-one's tried to sign anyone from us yet; "Distin - never played better" Moyes - "very smart in the transfer market"

Jonathan Pearce: "I speak to Bill Kenwright on a regular basis, and I know he's scoured the globe to try and find buyers", "he doesn't want to profiteer", "he's an idealistic lover of EFC", "he's got 4 global institutions out there looking for buyers", "a strong 14, 15 - that's it",

Prentice: "that's the exact point I was making a week or two in the Echo", "limited resources", "growing fear that this model isn't sustainable", "frustration is the inability to sell the club", Goodison "putting off potential buyers", Moyes' mood "as frustrated as I've ever known", "knows he needs a high quality wide man", "no immediate desire to walk across to where the grass is greener", "Only fear is maybe if a European club comes in for him", transfer-wise: "nothing going on whatsoever - one inquiry for Jagielka"

Fuck all got said, well nothing we didn't know anyway. Basically it was the tired old; Moyes is great on a budget, we're skint, looking for a buyer but no interest, Moyes frustrated, how long can we keep hold of him, got to keep our best players. No insight was offered at all. It was a "we've not mentioned Everton for a while, lets just state the obvious and gloss over the real issues" piece. Complete waste of time.

Yeah, he also once wrote a book about another EFC centre half, it was called Craig Short Stories. But they both gave it up, so I suppose they're ex-prose.... :D
