Blue Union Statement: Protest Details

The Blue Union met with representatives from Merseyside Police this afternoon and have been given the green light to stage a peaceful protest march prior to Saturday’s game at Goodison Park against Aston Villa.

We will be congregating on the council ground on Spellow Lane, fifty yards behind the Everton One megastore, at 14:00pm with a view to marching down Goodison Road to the directors entrance shortly afterwards.

The Blue Union’s passion for the club and for the team simply cannot be brought into question despite the best efforts of our detractors. We totally subscribe to the view of giving our full support to the players and to the manager and we urge all Evertonians to cheer our team on to victory.

Everyone who is part of The Blue Union continues to support the team and the manager, but we oppose stagnation and we promote the concept that it’s time for a change.

The aim of The Blue Union is simple, it’s not to get Bill Kenwright out, it’s certainly not some mindless attempt to sack the board; its aim is to promote the concept of allowing the CEO to be left to concentrate on reducing costs, developing our revenue streams and repairing the relationship with the fanbase whilst leaving the board to appoint a fully autonomous group of professional individuals who can effectively develop and implement a strategy that will identify and sell the club to a buyer who can demonstrate an ability and a genuine desire to take the club forward on both a commercial and football level. The Blue Union will be publishing an open letter to Mr Kenwright in the coming days.

It is imperative to stress that our protest will be a peaceful one; and anyone who intends on compromising the credibility of the protest is simply not welcome.

We have a batch of limited edition Blue Union t-shirts that are available to purchase on Saturday for a £5 donation as well as the popular amber and blue protest scarves that are priced at £6.

The Evertonians in attendance at The Blue Union’s public meeting demonstrated that they will no longer accept the stagnation of the club and are ready and willing to rise as one.

It’s time for change. It’s time for protest.

The Blue Union

  16. You lot are an embarrassment. You criticise the board for not being professional enough to be able to do a deal, and then go and publish the transcript of a private meeting held in good faith, thus breaching that good faith, undermining your own credibility and demonstrating that you are in fact complete and utter amateurs. It’s laughable.

    Is Kenwright doing the right thing? Maybe. Could he be doing better? Maybe. Could you guys do better, or even recognise a better solution? Not in a million years! How many people do you know who’d spend a fortune on funding the club? Seriously, how many? How many billionaires do you know? How many people do you know who know billionaires? I suspect none (I don’t either by the way, and something you appear to have given very little consideration to is that very few people do). So explain to everyone how you’re actually going to improve the situation?! Win the lottery a thousand times? Have a whip round at your local and put it on a billion to one shot? Sell a few more t-shirts? You seem like amateurs who know sod all about sod all. You don’t think for one second that you’re making the club a more attractive purchase with your small-minded protest do you? Personally, I think you’d help everyone if you went back to the pathetic little corner of the world you inhabited before this sorry episode, and stop giving the rest of us a bad name.
