Hello all, I couldn't bring myself to write anything yesterday as I was to distraught. It is like having a jail sentence and everytime we are set for release they increase the sentence.

Ed, can I ask, how do you see this playing out? I understand that TFG pulled out of talks to buy Roma and then came back in months later to buy the club.
There has to be an end to this crap, why does it have to be so dificult to get a competent owner.


{Ed002's Note - The problem Friedkin has with the Everton debt is that it inludes monies owed to 777 Partners (circa £220M) via loans and a very significant debt to Moshiri (circa £450M) via shareholder loans. This is in addition to the monies owed to Metro Band and Rights & Media Publishing. There is limited money coming in and Friedkin has already loaned the club £200M to pay off the critical MSP Sports Capital debt and to allow work to continue on the stadium. Friedkin could come back in to the picture if there were additional investors willing to share the risk. One solution would be to sell the Bramley Moore Dock development to investors who could complete the work and then lease it back to the club.}

Ed, surely that would then make the benefits of having built a brand new stadium redundant.

We are a joke of a club.

I am not even upset by it anymore.

When I read the news, I sat back in my seat and laughed whilst shaking my head. It’s like an abusive relationship, in the end, it is just business as usual.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is a means to keep the club afloat and an attempt to avoid Administration.}

2.) 20 Jul 2024 19:16:51
Surely they knew all the problems when they first bid.

{Ed025's Note - things change as people start to get greedy Chris..

3.) 20 Jul 2024 15:55:08
Thanks for the reply Ed. I would imagine some due diligence was done previous to entering into negotiations.
Naively I struggle to see how they wouldn't have anticipated this before entering into talks.

Well one saving grace is on the pitch we are the most sable we have been for ages and hopefully with a few more in the door we can keep away from relegation and at least enjoy some moments in our last season at Goodison.

{Ed002's Note - Due diligence starts with full access to the accounts.}

4.) 20 Jul 2024 21:36:00
Sorry state of affairs, ed002 can you have a root down back of sofa and save us haha.



30 May 2024 13:55:18
I wonder what is going to happen tomorrow with the end of the exclusivity agreement with 777.
Will we get an announcement about alterantive buyers or just a wall of silence?

I really hope they (moshiri/ msp) have something up their sleave because all this speculation about sales, takeovers and players leaving is doing my head in.


{Ed025's Note - i think its doing all our heads in ST..

1.) 30 May 2024 22:33:22
In the past i'd get frustrated with Moyes moving slow in the transfer window, but what i'd for that stability now.

I am not too fussed about Onana going for 50m, I don't think we were getting that type of value from his performances. I just hope we can bring a few in also.

Does anyone know why the DCL move broke down specifically?

I heard online it was over personal terms, presumably wages. Just seems a shame as £37mil for DCL with a year left is excellent business for us, in my opinion.


1.) 13 Jul 2024 17:04:09
I read he wants more than £130.000 a week ?‍♂️.

2.) 13 Jul 2024 18:37:43
In a good side he will.

3.) 13 Jul 2024 23:40:50
In a good side he will what?



05 May 2024 16:31:44
With redards to 777, I am now becoming really worried about this lot and our club. The fact that the premier league are still open to the idea of them buying us if frightening. What the fuxx is the point in having a deadline, not meeting it then extending it, defeats the purpose.

There has to be some sort of fan demonstration at the ground or outside the PL hq, to bring more attention to this and stop it.

Either Moshiri is in on this or
absolutely blind to their schemes.
They are some of the worst owners
he could of found.

Just say a prayer these robbers get rejected imminently.


1.) 05 May 2024 17:55:58
Agree totally. From bbc today “ Everton's prospective owners 777 Partners and the firm's co-owner Josh Wander have been accused of a "fraudulent scheme" by a lender in a civil court filing in New York.
Everton is the latest shiny object of Wander’s fraudulent scheme, solvency aside. ”
"Upon information and belief, Wander and [co-owner Steven] Pasko are operating a giant shell game at best, and an outright Ponzi scheme at worst, that takes money in from investors and lenders and shuffles it around to various money-losing alter egos in the enterprise to disguise their true financial condition. “
It will be out the frying pan into the sh1t….

2.) 05 May 2024 21:08:24
Who is going to come and save us from this nightmare?

3.) 05 May 2024 21:48:45
I worry we will be stuck with 777 BR23. That, or a late saviour who will run us on a shoestring. I think it's the demise of a once great club.

4.) 06 May 2024 11:08:26
Maybe Warner had no intention of buying us, and just wanted a free seat to the match each game.

5.) 06 May 2024 15:02:44
One point is do we actually think our director / owner will. do the right thing for Everton football club, I personally don't get any of this, he jas to be the biggest loser in football, clueless and has he covered a lot of wrong doings, now he's waiting and waiting for what only seems a bunch of unprofessional loan sharks who are ripping everyone off , yet our owner still only wants to sell. to them, i find it all very suspicious, shy not pay off the loan out of his own money and then find another buyer with a good track record.

{Ed025's Note - far too sensible an idea that BP mate..



25 Apr 2024 02:28:47
Well that was the best i've felt for ages as an Evertonian. Absolutely class performance from everyone, first win at Goodison in 14 years, stopping them, a nice farewell for Jurgen.

Absolutely buzzing. Finished work 2pm (colombia time) thinking about the game all day, dreaming we could scab a point off them, one more win and safe. And then we go and put in a performance like that, chuffed to bits.

Thought DCL was fantastic all night and bossed Van Dijk and Konate. Got to mention Godfrey also who I thought didn't put a foot wrong all game.

You have to give the gaffer credita after that, 3 wins, three clean sheets. First win at Goodison over them in donkeys. get in!


1.) 25 Apr 2024 07:10:16
Was a fantastic win mate but we need to go again at home against brentford Saturday if we can somehow beat them and luton loose am i right we are safe can only apologise if wrong.

2.) 25 Apr 2024 15:18:56
Yeah I think a win against Brentford seals it, and we would go above them. I just hope the takeover stuff calms done, I have this romantic idea some other group will come in and run us properly, 666 give me the fear big time. But then again so does Moshiri.



19 Apr 2024 00:13:37
If we survive and we part ways with Dyche, who do we go for? A.


1.) 19 Apr 2024 01:48:21

He is everything that Dyche was supposed to be in our current predicament.

- Steady the ship.
- Good in the transfer market, particularly at the lower end of the market.
- Has his teams competing in football matches.
- Pragmatic approach playing to his teams strengths.
- Knows the club.
- Gets results.

2.) 19 Apr 2024 01:53:41
If as I suspect, we will be run on a shoestring, then for me Graham Potter or, Eddie Howe, who in the past have proven they can work to tight budgets, while also developing young players.

3.) 19 Apr 2024 07:35:48
Potter because I doubt howe would leave Newcastle at the moment!

4.) 19 Apr 2024 08:20:52
I thought West ham was going to be moyes last job Would he want to come back and build a team again on bargain basement players and free transfers. can't believe West ham fans are moaning he won a cup last year they are in the top half again under him. i have wanted howe since he left Bournemouth. and him being a Toffee helps aswell. got to get rid of SD and his backroom staff 1st. wonder what that will cost us 6 points knowing that muppet masters who really seems to dislike us for some reason ? ?.

5.) 19 Apr 2024 08:23:31
Well not until they sack him anyway.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 14:12:29
I think Lee carsley is the moat plausible. Doubt potter would come to everton nor would moyes.

7.) 19 Apr 2024 15:18:26
It's all relative and since our last 3 or so years I'm now seeing Moyes as a dramatic step up for us. A few years back when his name was in the mic I was a firm no never. He'd understand the brief.

8.) 19 Apr 2024 16:06:37
I would take Moyes in a heartbeat if he was available. In terms of what we need at this time, he fits the bill perfectly.

I cannot see why Potter would want to join us, he is an excellent coach with a great record bar Chelsea (basket case) .

I also think with a full Pre Season Marcelo Bielsa would be an intersting one, certainly would get Goodison rocking again and we absolutely need to invest in our youth.

9.) 19 Apr 2024 16:25:08
I am very much the same FBS. With the position we now find ourselves in, I would take him back in a heartbeat. I think he would come back. He has always kept the doors open to do so and he enjoys this part of the world, much more so than London.

Potter won't come to us and Howe will be on serious dollar now he has been at Newcastle, he isn't going to drop down considerably to come to us.

Not sure how Carsley would do Witty as I know nothing about him as a manager but if he shows the same application and fight as he did as a player, I am all for it mate.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 17:39:44
Some short memories. Moyes let his contract run down so his new club would not have to pay compensation. I would not touch him anyway. let's go forward with new blood, new ideas, new enthusiasm.

11.) 19 Apr 2024 19:03:21
He also took us over before when we rock bottom and odds on favourites to be relegated. Turned the club round on a shoe string budget and consistently had us punching above out weight (with the financial restraints. )
11 years of service, he was no traitor.

12.) 19 Apr 2024 20:28:36
Kenwright let him. He tried to move up (Moyes) but it didn't work. I don't blame him.

13.) 19 Apr 2024 23:28:16
11 years wasn't it? Not sure what the short memory point is about. He absolutely earned his crack at a giant. He failed. He's then taken a few odd appointments but what position were Wham in when he took over and how quickly did he get them into Europe and how many seasons has he done so? He'd be a massive upgrade (now)

14.) 20 Apr 2024 02:41:10
When you compare the squad west ham have now in comparison to when he took over it is night and day in terms of quality. A lot of those signings were absolute bargains aswell. Bownen 20m, Areola 10m, Soucek 15m, Coufal 5m.
Christ we could of had those two for 20m, but nah. i'm happy with Beto hahaha.

Fro the first time in a long time, it feels like we are actually an attractive outfit now.

Dyche's style of footie is not for everyone but at least players know exactly what they are signing up for.

What I want to see is wingers with real pace in the team, like that lad from Hull. I think that would really help us score more goals.

With that stunning piece of architecture at Bramley Moore dock soon to be our home, we are on the up lads and lassies!

Apologies gb, its everywhere now I looked! Got excited as I am also a big Celtic fan and O'riley is great and still young. One of the things that shows a Celtic players real ability is how they fair in the UCL and he has been immense. Would bring some much needed quality in the final 3rd and goals. Can play CM or AMC, great attitude also.

Minteh was £7mil last summer, so we should be after another player who is under the radar not £33mil for him, in my humble opinion.

I can assure you they wouldn't. Well run clubs who are financially prudent don't sign big wage (for spfl) players with no sell on value.

Just like we wouldn't do a swap with AWB and Lindelof for Branthwaite.

Celtic are a well run club pal, they get top dollar for their big assets. O'Riley will go for 30mil, he has proven his worth in the UCL which is what shows his level, which is especially impressive for his age. He is on a long contract to.


{Ed025's Note - i like him too ST..

Now now, Gareth is doing a grand job and long may it continue. I'm sure I speak on behalf of most Scots, we are big Southgate supporters.
