It does though. How we're seen by the wider public affects who we can sign and for how much, it also probably influences referees.

Moyes made a lot of mistakes but the one thing he did get right is to create this image of us as the club that does things the right way, that signs players who fit into a great and friendly dressing room. Since we haven't got more money than our rivals, when we compete for signings, stuff like this could really make a difference.

We need to concentrate on signing good players, not making sure that we appease the public or media. Once we start performing, they will give the club all the praise and attention we want.

It's not just a football club anymore. It's a business. You need to be an organisation that companies want to pay money to be associated with.

Most coaches earn less in a year than an average player in a week.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

It's not that we're necessarily arsed, it's the perception of the club that is damaged. Mind you we knew that before appointing him, he'll now go to town on us and the reputation we should be trying to create of a dynamic club with money and a vision will be skewed by him and his mates into a mess of a club with no strategy. Not entirely untrue mind but someone somewhere in the club needs to get a grip on our PR.

How is the perception of the club damaged? Lack of success damages the club's reputation and we've had plenty of that now. That's why a lot of pundits now speak about us in the same breath as West Ham, Leicester and Southampton. No amount of PR will change the media's perception of the club a great amount. Appointing a forward thinking manager, challenging the top six and for trophies are the only things that will change the perception of the club.

Best tweet of the day so far

Just as @Brownie20 suggested about the Spurs fan tweet, you posted yesterday, this should be sent to all those pundits who are asking the question what do Everton fans want?

That's not strictly true. Of course we'll only become relevant to Sky etc... if and when we challenge the media darlings and their cosy club but Spurs have done it and they did it by appointing a young, dynamic manager and creating a young dynamic team over a few years.
We scored a spectacular own goal by appointing a dinosaur who for some reason is lauded in the media and now we're even attracting criticism from cricketers on top of every football pundit and his dog telling us to be careful what we wish for.

His appointment was a disaster at every level. Now we have to repair our perception to attract interest, players, media coverage and sponsorship.

City did it overnight by signing Robinho, the media took massive notice of them straight away

I, for one, actually don't care about entertainment more than 3 points.
All i want from any match is 3 points. Nothing more, nothing less.

My problem with Allardyce was that there wasn't anything (nor had there ever been anything in his career) that suggested he was capable of taking 3 points regularly off the top 6 teams.
Which meant we could never break into that cabal on a regular basis.

It was the same reason my attitude changed towards Moyes at the end. He had taken us as far as we could go.
The problem with stagnation and "settling" for 7th or 8th is that every season you roll the dice and run the risk of having a shit season. That happens a couple of times on the trot and really bad things can happen - like at Villa, or Forrest.

In a technical sense yes. In reality he's a small part of the coaching team, he works with the strikers, he's studying for his badges and he has an Everton tattoo. He's pretty insignificant.



He's got a huge passion for the club. I don't think that can ever be classed, as insignificant.

They probably do. It's a strange thing in football, in many other industries, coaching is extremely well paid.
