Lots of Everton fans have been left fuming over some news involving Graeme Sharp.
As per the official website of the Goodison Park faithful, they have now appointed the Merseyside club legend to their Board of Directors.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
Sharp will become a non-executive Director and, while he will remain the Players’ Life President, he will relinquish all other duties in order to focus on his role on the Board.
While Toffees supporters will have fond memories of Sharp and what he achieved with them as a player, it does seem like an easy appointment to make, and he is in danger of becoming a ‘yes-man’ as a result, at least according to Toffees on Twitter.
The club do have history of appointing club legends in senior roles too, such as Duncan Ferguson and David Unsworth, and so it can be perceived as lazy by the board that they are not properly researching a candidate outside of the club most suitable to take on each position.

“Do we never learn anything?”
“This is another backwards step for the club”
“What an absolute joke we are”
“Yeah this club’s finished”
“Find this bizarre personally”
