Fourth minute applause for Howard

30/10/2015  6 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton will be supporting a fans initiative to mark the passing of Howard Kendall with a period of chanting and applause in the fourth minute of Sundays game against Sunderland.

The Everton Giant was laid to rest on Thursday after an emotional funeral service in Liverpools Anglican Cathedral.

Fans suggested the mark of respect in the fourth minute, inspired by the number he wore as an Everton player in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

An image of Howard will appear on Goodison Parks big screens during the fourth minute of the game.

Great idea. To name the Main Stand the Howard Kendall Stand or The Holy Trinity Stand would hopefully be the next step.

A lot of people have mentioned Colin and it's his face at the Man Utd game that brings a real sense of grief to me. Respect the White Pele while we have him.

Jesus! For one minute I thought someone meant Tim Howard when I saw headline...

Yes Ged, so did I till I thought about the number 4. The wording needs to be changed..

Fantastic to name a stand the "Holy Trinity" with sections called Kendall, Ball & Harvey.

I remember Howard Kendall signing and was lucky enough to see all three in their prime. They were fantastic and it was an honour to have witnessed...

The applause idea is good but I hope the players don't join in; it would be better for them to score at that time.

Evertonians the world over have in their many thousands shown what tremendous respect they hold for Howard Kendall and (hoping this does not seem callous) we do not require other outpourings of grief to demonstrate our heartfelt love for the man.

What we desperately need is a board that reciprocates just a fraction of Howard's and the fans' love for the club. All we have had to date is a catalogue of lies and false dawns. Whether it be a minute's silence or applause at at the passing of one of our greats, it would serve no good purpose to continue with the mourning process.

Against Sunderland, the team and Martinez need to show some attacking spirit. A clear-cut victory in that game would go a long way to lift the shroud of misery.

I am sure Howard Kendall would prefer that rather than the other kind of Blues.

The passing of a great man and the Sunderland fans and a couple of their players need to be commended for joining in the applause.

It reminds me why I love this club......

I think Kendall would have grasped the fact that Lukaku, Deulofeu and Kone are our best combination up front some time ago.

Roberto please watch the videos of the 80s and do not tamper with a winning combination.....

RIP, Mr Kendall, a true legend.....
