Sir Paul McCartney

Comments (27)

The above local celeb is worth £495 million according to one of the questions on Million-Pound Drop.

Isn't it about time he made a charitable donation to a certain local charity in desperate need for some investment?

If he's got any sense, he'll keep it in his back pocket.

I think his donation to Heather Mills may have soured his view. He summed up the lot of PL Chairmen in the lyrics to Come and Get It.

The McCartney line is old old news, he's never said one colour or another emphatically so as not to alienate the other team and he has no desire to be involved with either side.

China is where the money is at right now and getting more and more by the minute, the Middle East has plenty of dead dinosaurs under it and plenty of money now too but neither has been chased by the club. They'd probably go knocking on Middle Eastern doors the day after the oil runs out; too little too late as usual.

He needs to hang on to his money for his divorce settlements... just in case another one might come his way. Once bitten, twice shy...

Why would Sir Paul fund Kenwright ego.Maybe different if Kenwright walked.
Sir John Moores wouldn't have left his fortune and business to Lord grantchester if he could have known his club was being run like it is without his family's money.(he was a true fan)

True,he's never claimed to be a Blue or a Red, but he did got to watch us at Wembley in 66 or 68. But that's about the limit of his support,I imagine. At least he doesn't bang on about the "boot room" and Shankly like that twat Tarbuck.

Eric, there's a world of difference between the Keijan sponsorship (Li Tie and Lie Wiefeng both part of) and the bloody awful soccer prince media pish and looking for Chinese business people willing to invest or buy out the charlatan and his mates. The Chinese economy is flying through the roof with no sign of slowing.

Ray, I heard a while ago that Stella Mc was reported to be a RS and fully agree that the plastic scousers like pound coin holder teeth Tarby and shergar impersonator Cilla got out of Liverpool the second they got fame and use their place of birth as part of their act and wqouldn't be seen dead in the place unless their agent told them it was paying.

It's a shame he didn't offer money to the King's Dock bid (allowing the summer pops to continue in a worthy stadium).
I suppose Kenwright would of seen it as a threat and rejected it anyway.

I am with Knoxy on this one - SPM would be "funding Kenwright's ego".

Kenwright was always after an "investor" to help him keep the sinking ship afloat. But it is sinking because of him. There is no point putting money into the club and allowing the existing board to remain in place. You may as well try to keep a sieve filled up with water.

I remember watching TFI Friday when Sir Mac was on it (for those who have no idea, TFI was an interview/music/laughs programme, playing up to the ?Britpop? era in Britain, presented by Chris Evans on Channel 4 in the 90s).

Chris Evans was asking questions to him from famous people, and Ian Broudie of the Lightening Seeds simply asked "Red or Blue?". He said he liked to see both teams do well. Evans started pressing him on it, and he ended up saying "Well, my dad was an Everton fan so I lean towards them more."

Not exactly ?born a blue, die a blue? stuff, but still...!

I'd have thought McCartney would have been well into Everton since most of our strikers only have one leg.

McCartney does seem to have some ambiguous leanings, we was at Wembley in '66 with John Lennon and some Everton supporters (FA Cup not World Cup Final), if all is to be believed, but was featured on one or two Beatles albums of the time wearing a Liverpool rosette.

Didn't he turn us down before when offered investment?

Jon #17, do you know he bought Heather Mills a plane for xmas one year? He bought her a ladyshave for the other leg.

The divorce hearings got really nasty too, they both fought for custody of the shoe.

The unfair football world we live in means winners are those lucky enough to get a vastly wealthy benefactor.

But I don't see how it is fair to expect anyone to dole out millions, even if he is unlikely to need it. It's his money to do what he wants, and I don't see why we should demand anything.

Gavin and Ray
He is on record: he's a Blue.

A couple of years ago Bill Kenwright came to the ESCLA (London-based supporters) AGM.

McCartney's name came up in the context of funding and Bill, I think it is fair to say, almost scoffed. He started a sentence with the words, "If he's an Evertonian ..." and then he trailed off, leaving the sentence incomplete.

If you're waiting for funding from Sir Paul, I think you're waiting for Godot.

Agree with Robert 21 and Ste 16... The attitude of, "you've got loads of money so you should give us some" has always baffled me. Even if he's the bluest blue in the World, why should he invest his money into this abysmal excuse for a business?? "Charity" is the correct word, but even then I can't see it being very gratifying watching BK piss your money up the wall...

Fuck McCartney and his fucking shit music. Greedy bastard worth £500m and he is still trying to get in the papers and still releasing shite music and playing gigs to do his Beatles stuff. Give it a rest, Paul, and enjoy your money you greedy egotistical fame hungry wanker. I was so happy when hopalong took him the cleaners.

You're another one who should consider anger management...

Flawed advice imo Ray.

Many psychologists believe it is better to vent your anger rather than to internalise.

Andy may appear a tad unhinged, but those who take a sniper-rifle to the top of a water tower and pick off innocents are very often described later as being "very polite" and/or people "who kept themselves to themselves".

Anyway just how DOES one 'manage' anger?
