RAWK, as you might expect, are somewhat relishing Everton's demise. I particularly liked this comment...

"I was playing Football Manager last night and, out of the blue, I got offered the Everton manager's job. I thought why the fuck would I want to take over a club going nowhere with a future in the lower leagues of English football.....

So I hung up the phone and carried on playing Football Manager."


:LOL:

This could be interesting...

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/panorama-to-question-ownership-of-everton-2038bdw32

Behind a paywall unfortunately so if anyone can get round it would be appreciated.
Seems to be a bit out of the blue as well, a two night special that is completely unannounced, as pretty much all the TV guides are still showing another episode of Panorama.
Could be quite juicy.
GOT have got the article:

Everton’s ownership and the alleged involvement of Alisher Usmanov, the Arsenal shareholder, at Goodison Park will be scrutinised in a two-part Panorama special to be broadcast on the BBC tomorrow and Monday.

The BBC has obtained documents pertaining to Usmanov’s purchase of a 14.58 per cent stake in Arsenal in 2007 through the Red & White investment vehicle that he jointly owned with Farhad Moshiri, who sold up to his business partner last year to facilitate his purchase of 49.9 per cent of Everton.


It is understood that Panorama will claim that the documents show that Moshiri’s initial Arsenal stake was a gift from Usmanov, leading to the suggestion that the billionaire from Uzbekistan was behind the Iranian’s purchase of Everton as he was the original source of the funds.

Everton and a spokesman for Usmanov deny that he has any involvement at Goodison, which would be a breach of Premier League rules that state any shareholder with a 10 per cent stake in one club cannot buy into another.

There have been unsubstantiated rumours for some time that Usmanov would ultimately join Moshiri at Everton as he has no influence at Arsenal and the pair have a number of joint investments, whispers which increased after Usmanov’s company, USM Holdings, announced a sponsorship deal for the club’s training ground in January.

The Premier League conducted a rigorous due diligence process before signing off Moshiri’s Everton purchase and is confident that he used his own money.


RAWK have taken the piss:

"Be the first time in a long time Everton have been on TV on a Monday night and not been beaten"

:ROFLMAO:

good win for Everton, haven't seen the game yet or highlights. But is it a surprise to see them turn the game around after bringing on pace into their team.

Everton are discussing four potential candidates to become their new manager and owner Farhad Moshiri's top target is Diego Simeone, Sky Sports News understands.

Simeone's Atletico Madrid side are fourth in La Liga and the Argentinian is understood to be happy at the club, and unlikely to leave mid-season. He signed a new contract in September until 2020.



Optimistic doesn't cover it.

Big Sam would turn things around there and make sure they stay up. I'd like to see what he could do with a bit more money to spend and greater expectations from the fans and board.
