When you say that the keep Kenwright camp place a huge amount of stock in "he's a blue so he's got our best interests at heart", "who would you have in instead" and "at least he's not venkys", what is the big problem with that?
For every Man City, there is a Portsmouth. For every Chelsea, there is a Blackburn Rovers. So what is wrong with our current board being very picky about who they choose to do business with? In any case, who, apart from those inside the club, knows what offers may or may not have been made to invest/buy the club? Who would you consider to be a suitable replacement for the incumbent board? Sure, the current incumbents are far from perfect, but do you happen to know anybody with the type of cash required to buy the club, redevelop/relocate the stadium and provide the sort of investment over a sustained period that would have us challenging the top four consistently? If you do, are these people actively seeking a sleeping giant of a football club to spunk hundreds of millions of pounds into? Asking who would come in to replace him is a perfectly valid question. Would you want us to bring in a fucking loon like they have at Cardiff City, who decides we should play in red because it's lucky, or a knobhead like the one at Hull, who wants us to change our name to Everton Toffees of Liverpool? I certainly wouldn't want to see that.
The silly part of it all is that both camps have supporters who love the club and want nothing more than to see us challenging where we belong again. It's not constructive to label someone who simply has a different opinion on the way forward a kopite. We all want the same thing. We just have different opinions about how it can be achieved.
The reason I object to the "he's a blue" thing is because to me this doesn't really matter, his record is appalling. I would rather have a business minded person in charge who dissociate with the emotional, romanticism that an evertonian.
"Who would you have instead" winds me up because it's as easy to reel off a list of names as it is to discredit suggestions, I would rather put it as a type of person I want in, or at least bill/board to become.
"At least he's not venkys" suggests that no value is placed in the motto that has served this club well over the years. This should always be followed by the words "...so they will do". To me it's just not good enough.
The thing is as nice as a chelsea/city type buyer would be and as shite as a venkys would be the club is big enough to go forward with a more aggressive and intelligent corporate strategy.
You talk about a board picky about who they do business with, but the same board who seemingly won't do business with each other and are allegedly controlled by the mysterious hands of a certain retail tycoon.
You mention the prospect of a Cardiff scenario, well I would put it forward that trying to move Everton football club out of the city of Liverpool, a move based on a plethora of lies was just as bad if not worse, bringing me back to the "he's a blue thing" because if he wasn't he would be a distant memory.
