all I want is a big set of gallows next to the stadium

makes the song "Royal Blue Mersey" all the more sinister then, doesn't it

it only had about 6 years left to run, so probably a good bit of business (the six years is based on reports from the time, but club officials have since said it was done over 25 years, so 11 years, but still we're over halfway into the deal and the money has been repaid in full, so the settlement will have been an agreed amount based on the interest)

the info will have come from Company's House, @Corinthian so you could pay whatever fee they charge for the document (think it's a quid?) but that's where WT tends to get his info from

well there's a huge fire about 500 yards away at the moment that's been blazing for well over an hour with flames about 40 foot tall

and yeah, the smell at Bramley Dock was horrendous when we went down there on deadline day, I thought @Bally had farted at first

they're talking about filling in the dock in all the stories I hear

wasn't it once designed to be a dry dock anyway?  would it be impossible to close some gates, drain it, and then fill it in quite quickly?


also, does that allow us to "build" ground works before filling in the dock, effectively saving time?

Yay Christmas lights!

I found this interesting, but others probably don't

Everton don't let their own staff put the decorations up - they pay a professional Christmas decorating company to do it (I dare say they do stuff other than Christmas decorations too, or they'd be bored out of their arses the rest of the year!)

The N has been fixed, I repeat the N has been fixed

I have seen a picture of when several of the lights failed and it simply said "Goo"

I think they should have left it like that for a laugh!

The club have not said it's an AGM but I think it is just that. They had to call the meeting within the calendar year 2016 even though the actual meeting will not be held until 2017.
No doubt the stadium issue will be mentioned even if it's only to say there's nothing to report.

it's what has replaced the AGM

it's not a formal AGM but it's basically our new version of it and it'll be more of a presentation than anything else

hopefully my share transfer will have come through in time for me to attend

Didn't we only just go back to having proper  agms as a result of shareholder unrest over the restricted  presentation style meetings where the club just lied and twisted the previous accounts?

no, they call them AGMs but they're not really

Well I did know there was a North Korean element to the planning of these events.

the articles of association don't actually make AGMs mandatory - which is how they cancelled them in the first place - so these "meetings" are more of a compromise with the club holding all the cards to cancel whenever they see fit
