But we are Everton, so the board just puts up with it. Staying in the Premier League is good enough for them.

However it will not take much more of Mr Martinez's time. No way.

I long ago stopped listening to club puppets like Sharp, Snodin, Ratcliffe, Horne etc, Southhall is a breath of fresh air who tells it like it is.
Come on, Mr Moshiri get rid of the imposter and have a go at saving our club, at least breathe some life back into Everton.

Kenwright has strangled the life out of mine and your club. The fans have been repeatedly taken in by the sentimental crap he spouts. I have friends who are lifelong home and away fans. The majority saw right through Kenwright very early on. It amazes me that one or two still consider him to be of any benefit to the club.
Until this con man is out of the club, we will not progress. If he told me 2 + 2 = 4, I would get a calculator to check. The club is suffocating under his control.

At some point in the near future Mr Moshiri will have to start showing his intentions. Manager, stadium, players, Kenwright, commercial department and so on.
My guess (or is it hope) is that an announcement regards the manager will be made on Wednesday night, Thursday morning. I can't see the club putting him or his family through Thursday night and Sunday afternoon.
I'd also guess that Mr Moshiri is saying nothing at the moment as he does not want to be associated with this season's shambles and will want this season to be seen as Kenwright's mess.
He will want to be seen as the new broom sweeping out the rubbish and as the man who ushered in change, positivity, success.

Give him a couple of months to take stock of things and we're pretty much bang up to date. Can only think this is the reason why he has kept quiet?
As David says, it's kenwrights mess which will be cleared up come Sunday evening at the latest when Martinez is on the first plane back to Spain.

Everton stopped thinking like a big club from 1990 onwards, give or take the odd exception, but even when we have achieved something like finished 4th its been tempered by the "little old Everton punching above its weight" line endlessly dragged out.
The club has been drowning in a mediocre mentality and small thinking one for years now. Kenwright has been fortunate that for 11 years Moyes habit of turning water into wine kept the wolves away from his door; whilst we achieved nothing major under Moyes he brought about respectability after a decade of relegation battles (again with one exception in 1995-96).
Now though is the biggest test in Everton Football Club's recent history and will the board come up with the answers to the higher expectation levels?
Or will the... "Let's be happy we are a Premier League team and don't dare to dream in case it sinks us" mentality simply win over like it has for three decades.

This coming summer is so huge for EFC and unfortunately the responsibility rests entirely on his shoulders as we all know that the other "gentlemen" of the board can only be described as utterly spineless and totally uncaring about the club at all. There is no other conclusion (except possibly that they are only there to line their own pockets) we can arrive at by their lack of design,decision and action these past umpteen years.
Yes, most definitely Mr Kenwright should be lauded for saving us from the hamper king clown all those years ago BUT now is most definitely the time to let go and allow the biggest decisions to be made by another. We know and accept that this utter debacle cannot be solved over a few summer months but please please give us a bit of hope by showing true intent, drive and ambition and bring in a manager who at the very least will strive to shed this horrible "plucky Everton " tab and make us competitive on the park which then will give us all a bit of pride in the badge back. Over to you, Mr Moshiri!!

I confess that I have bored people to death with wanting to get rid of Martinez from December 2014. Twelve months later, supporters in the main were still happy with Martinez. It took until the game at Anfield for people to feel the man had to go.
I put this down to accepting that we are a second-rate team, and the board has carried on accepting a second-rate team.
Kenwright came on after the Chelsea cup win, saying how good Martinez was; we won a cup tie against a team in the bottom half of the Premier League!
Now we are so bad with a poor ageing squad that let's not kid ourselves we need major surgery to avoid relegation next season. Yet Martinez is still manager having bought badly over 18 months, not replaced the ageing ones, and he believes we play the right way... tell that to Leicester City!
Martinez should have gone a long long time ago and many fans must accept as well as the board the blame for this. As for Moshiri, he should have insisted on firing the manager after the Liverpool game even though this would be 18 months too late... Is he here more for property development of a ground than our team, I do worry.
16 Posted 11/05/2016 at 00:10:41
I also think a new ground and the development's around it might also have been a big reason why the Americans were so interested.
They new the money to be made by building something similar in the USA.

And so we get what we deserve.
