  • Thinking about this again. It does seem a bit odd Friedkin has pulled out at this time. You’d have thought their due diligence in lending Everton £200m would have turned over every stone. £200m is not pocket change and was lent after the 777 money came in. Something doesn't add up, unless something has come up resentful from the US ACap proceedings which wasn’t in the Everton data room....

  • Bargaining tactics, John? I think there’s a lot more cloth to be cut here....

  • Friedkin knew everything. Seems a bit of an excuse to blame 777. I think he just changed his mind. Like, 'eyes too big for his belly.' It was very impulsive to take an interest in buying Everton, maybe it was a nice idea but then he thought about the problems with already having a big club and then decides to say No. Just that simple. He could have easily paid off 777 Partners or brought in Bell and Downing to pay that off and give them a share. Just doesn't make sense....

  • The Kenwright Hauntings. New West End Musical. Kenwright a crooked chancer and showman produces a mortgaged to the hilt Everton for sale. No one bites. He meets a Shaman, hidden in Prince Rupert's Tower, whilst burying sacks of Artera cash under the stone flooring. The two strike up an agreement. Kenwright finally releases his podgy fingered stranglehold on the club whilst the Shaman morphs into Farhad Moshiri. Thus enabling his Russian Oligarch friends proceeds of crime cash to be laundered. Thus Kenwright keeps his decades long false promise of caretaking Everton in order to procure a rich owner. The Shaman in return keeps schtum about the Arteta cash. They do the deal. But it all goes horribly wrong. They need to get rid of the club. The authorities smell two rats. The Shaman, angry at Kenwrights deceitful and incompetent chairmanship, strikes him down. He tries to get rid of the club to a Ponzi scheme, but they just make the money mess worse. Dressed as an attractive "P...

  • As usual we are left in the dark. Could be Friedkin playing hardball. But it could, and probably is, such a complete shitshow financially that no one in their right mind would want to get involved in. Could be tied up in the courts for years. Meanwhile, who's keeping the show on the road ? Administration could be inevitable. ...

  • In the end, I had settle for watching it on the official website.It's pre-season and the first game. I was listening to Dyche after the match and he made them run 13 km yesterday. They must have been knackered.I personally thought it was an entertaining match. Unusual for pre-season as they can be drab affairs.I thought McNeil looked good in the first half and Jack Harrison was the stand-out player in the second half. Very direct.Mason Holgate goes from hero to zero. Scores then hits a hospital pass to the keeper, which I can only think hit and got stuck on a slug, who slowly carried it towards Virginia!I was impressed by the young right-back, Roman Dixon. Plenty of promise there.All-in-all, a good run out and entertaining. I hope the Irish Blues and those who crossed the Irish Sea had a good day out.Like I say, I'm not getting carried away with pre-season. What we do on 17 August matters more....
