What now for Bill Kenwright and Everton?
As we approach the 8th year of theatre impresario Bill Kenwright’s tenure as Chairman of Everton Football Club, never have so many questions been raised about the direction of the club and his ability to steer the club through the toughest of financial times, in living memory.
It’s common knowledge that as a football club, Everton is “For Sale” but potential buyers or indeed investors, seem thin on the…Continue

I started going to football matches to get over a broken heart. At age 47 I fell truly, madly and deeply for Cooper - a builder with a heart of gold, blue eyes, broad shoulders, a white van and little else to his name. He rescued my flat from ruin.
We had an affair which lasted less than three months. People talk about crash and burn. This was burn and…Continue

Yes, before you all ask, it still hurts. My chest aches and I can't bear to look at the papers. City have really hurt me. I am very tempted to use some rather foul language, but hey, this is a family blog. Supposedly...
Well what a week it's been for the Premier League! Shocks galore, big wins, small wins - not to mention a few naughty words used on…Continue
In the second of two parts, CookeShaw and Darren Curtis consider the state of football in 2011.
This weekend, we see the pomp and circumstance that is the NFL return to London to play another game at Wembley, this time between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears. And with it comes the hope from the NFL franchise owners that a big pay day in Europe will become an even more regular thing.
The NFL began to bring…Continue
After Capello's damp squib of a team crashes out of Euro 2012 in typical fashion, a loss at the first knockout stage after an undefeated group stage of two 0-0 draws and a single 1-0 victory. It's the end of the golden generation, several big names retire from the national side. Including one surprise, the still relatively young Wayne Rooney, who due to his suspension only played the single match. Only one man can rebuild this…Continue
Whilst trying to obtain other peoples opinions on Barkley, I decided to speak to an Everton supporting colleague of mine, who, quite simply, said that “he has all the attributes to become a more complete player than any other Everton academy…Continue
Today, I'm going to write about my second sporting passion - Formula One. And how Sebastian Vettel has not only completed the sport, but is also well on the way to potentially dominating, and ruining it too.
That will probably come as quite a big shock to…Continue
For all the recent talk of the transformation of Fabio Capello, I expected so much more from him. From everything I've read recently, Fabio is not the same man as he was in 2010. Taking his team to the World Cup he made all the wrong decisions. His handling of the captain's armband (passed to Ferdinand in name but allowing Terry to control in reality), his desperate attempts to bring back Paul Scholes at the last minute with the addition of Jamie Carragher, the insistence on Rob Green and…Continue
As a Man United fan, this post could potentially come across as biased propaganda designed for you to hate the blue side of Manchester. But, it won't - in fact, I want to praise them. Strange, I know, but sometimes…Continue
