Reid's Investment?

Comments (6)

This is probably bollocks, but apparently Peter Reid is advising a London investment company who are trying to raise funds to buy a top club and we're top of the list (see link in the Rumour Mill on the Homepage).

Anyway, if this type of investment is a possibility, then I would be much happier with the prospect, than if we were to become a billionaire's plaything.

It's a local lad, with a consortium behind him and most importantly, he's a blue legend. I would expect him to have Everton's best interests at heart.

Reid said it was "speculation" on Talksport earlier.

Funnily enough, Reidy is one of the pundits on Show Sports over here in Saudi for today?s games, he didn?t outright quash the rumour, but he did say it was pure speculation.

I?d still rather have that kind of setup than an Abramovich, Abu Dhabi, Red Yank buyer. Keep dreaming eh?

Knightmare scenario: Reid starts to buy the players he wants and tells Moyes how to pick the team... and he buggers off.

Before anyone get?s too excited, check their website out On their football ?mission statement? it states amongst other things that, ?they want to achieve positive returns within an investment opportunity?.

These are whizz kid city brokers looking for a fast buck, similar to the American idiots across the park. Would you really want to hand over the heritage of our club to a group of financial mercenaries?

Fair enough for the concern, although to be honest it will take a strong outfit competent enough to raise funds behind the guidance of someone like Peter Reid. Who would not want to seek positive returns for their investment?
