Where's our money going...?

Comments (3)

Forget whether Arteta's agent is touting him for sale. Forget who is the better right back - Hibbert, Neville or that bloke who wanders up and down the Park End and collects the corner flags when the match has finished. Forget (if you can) the potential move to Kirkby. The big news that we should all be monitoring is Philip Green's proposed move to Tottenham. The financial backing behind Bill Kenwright and apparantly also behind Robert Earl's conversion to a Blue.

This could go one of several ways; it could knacker up any plans we have of a substantial (for us) outlay on new players. It may, dare I say it, scupper any ground move... it may even lead to Bill having to look elsewhere or possibly even sell up.

Now I know BK is not the most popular person on here and I've heard all the arguments for and against, some of them vitriolic in the extreme, but there again it is a game of passion and that is what I believe he has in bucketloads for our club. If BK should decide that enough is enough and decides to get out where does that leave us?

A rich American? After the debacle over the park? Some shady character from Easter Europe who has no love for us but sees us somehow as a cash-cow? Or maybe we could find a million supporters to put £5000 each into the club just like 'them', and that's going to really happen, both for us and that shower, anin't it?!

There again, maybe Bill Gates suddenly decides that he is a life-long Blue and now is the time to do something about it... either that or Macca realises that he can't take it all with him and to stop Heather making another claim he offloads a cool half a billion our way. I can't see it somehow though, can you?

Anyone out there with a hot-line to Microsoft?

We have to move with the times Eddie and if that means pissing off BK for the growth of our club then so be it.

You talk about the debacle across the park but, just quietly, I would love to have investors fighting over our club. These investors have helped acquire the likes of Torres, Mascherano, et. al that we could only dream about at this stage and they are in the semis in the Champions League.

Yes there is a huge element of risk that we could end up like a Leeds, but I would rather die not wondering than to be left behind the others with their billionaire backers and all we have to get excited about for the next hundred years is the early days.

The window of opportunity is NOW!!!!

I understand that David Beckham and Tom Cruise have clubbed together and want to buy a soccer....sorry... a football club.
Any takers amongst the Everton shareholders? Lol.

Green only acted as surety for the overdraft, he didn't invest anything directly. Earls money went straight to Gregg, no new money came into the club - all that happened was Gregg?s shares changed hands.

I agree that P Green is the sort of investor we need, but we have to accept that L4 aint W12 (QPR)
