Follow this link to some questions being posed, to the board, by KEIOC.
Some interesting stuff here, but the one that intrigues me is question 5 regarding Finch Farm. How on earth does us paying over the odds (if we did) for FF then line the pockets of Sir Alex Ferguson and "other" Premier League players?
Anyone got a clue what this is about??

I honestly think they would get a fair bit of support from the ordinary match-goer after the way this seasons gone and the almost deafening cries of poverty from misery guts Moyes at every transfer window. It's obvious they are the only set of Evertonians who have the wherewithal to do so. By the way, I'm not passing the buck ? I'd be more than happy to help in any way possible.

The ultimate owners of Hudson Capital Properties [HCP], formerly ROM Capital, are the aAim Group; Ferguson was originally brought in on the board to attract wealth from the football industry. Part of the business went into administration last year, he's meant to have lost quite a few quid. A new fund is being promoted now using Ferguson and David Frost as the attractors. Here are a couple of links:

The reason for the questions appearing on KEIOC's website was that Robert Elstone was meant to be on Radio City tonight taking questions from the fans, unfortunately he's cried off, City told us this morning that he has flu... I'm saying nothing. Here's another link on aAim:

These questions should be asked over and over until that cretin Kenwright is forced to give an answer. If he won't answer then he should be made to explain why he won't answer them. His inability to run our club properly needs to be shown up especially to those who are stupid enough to still support him.

On a day when we are seemingly about to lose two very good players for not very much, one of whom was due to not paying enough wages, and there is no real sign of any incoming moves, the Club's financial predicament should be sharply in focus.
Moyes's and the players' efforts on the pitch in recent years have glossed over too many unacceptable things off it.
We all know that we can't be told everything. Any reasonable fan accepts that, but there is so much bullshit given out, that you are almost scared what you might find out if the truth was revealed.

I completely agree.... The simple answer is we aren't sustaining it, and no amount of cooking the books is going to hide it....
The only logical conclusion to the current modus operandi is at best mediocrity followed by eventual decline. DM has had to generate everything from a few highly prudent transfers and a couple of decent windfalls. When that cash-flow freezes up all progress ceases and the good work is undone.....
There are signs that even his patience has now gone. Despite his best endeavours, his room for manoeuvre is still diminishing all the time..... the forced loss of Pienaar and/or Yakubu to facilitate maybe one new loaned arrival speaks volumes about our true predicament.
DM may be able to push us up a few league placings before the end of the season, but it is still papering over the cracks, and ultimately represents a massive missed opportunity IMO.
