I have been looking to find out what happened at the meeting the week after the Chelsea game. Moyes said that he would be seeking to find out how much (or little) money he would get from Kenwright. He talked about a meeting between him and Kenwright.
What I and every other Everton F.C. supporter would like to know is this: What can we expect when we look at all the links to 20 different players. And if we do not have any money what will Moyes be doing to get them, which first team player will be sold? (except Yakubu and Yobo)
The answer to this question will set the stage for players like Heitinga and Arteta to leave because there is no progress, and they want to be among the best, not the rest...

BK: So what?
DM: Do i get any money?
BK: Are you being serious?
DM; Its the same as usual? If i only get money from the players i sell.
DM: Really (with a naive optimism)?
BK: You get 50% of the money from the players you sell, the bank's getting edgy.
DM: For f**k's sake! So no sign of that 'mystery investor' then?
BK: hahahaha...good one Davey! I should put you on stage in one of my fruity comedies....genius!
DM skulks off mumbling about free transfers and Randy Lerner being on the phone.....

DM: How much cash have i got to spend ?
BK: Fuck all as usual.
DM: Right i'm resigning
BK: You can't afford to sunshine the money i pay you and anyway who's gonna employ a loser. Remind me again what trophies you have won !

Most here probably think ime dreaming but i will be dissapointed and dislike Kenwright even more if its not the case for the reason i give.
8 Posted 09/06/2011 at 22:18:17
Of course Moyes will get money to spend...Just not much.
Of course Bills got billions stashed away and doesn't want to part with it... tight bastard.
Fucking grow up ,

" when is kenwright gonna learn how to use a fuckin calculator? 20 million he said...., it's been checked over- an its 20 thou , what a complete twat".
Realising the Moyes sulk can last forever Roundy tries a mood lifter:
"I know boss but remember when he did your contract - you were gonna get 1 mill and he pressed the 3 "
"yeah, fuckin nob - bollox to it - let's sing the song, that'll cheer me up"
like an obliging pup Roundy jumps on the table and starts chanting:
"we shall not be moved....oh uncle bill, his calculator don't add up....we shall not be moved"
davey dances around the kitbag throwing 20 pound notes in the air.
"where's the bibs? I wanna sniff the bibs" he yells just as the phone rings
" bollocks to it - fergie only rings the mobile" he shouts, continuing "oh uncle bill, his calcu........"
"no boss, its your home number!!" Roundy interrupts
" it'll be the missus - say I'm busy" says Davey holding phil Neville's training bib close to his nose.
"Hello Mrs M." chuckles Roundy, enthralled by his own cheeky chappiness
" I'm afraid he's out"
Judging by Mrs Moyes trembling voice something is wrong, Roundy presses the intercom button so Davey can hear.
"oh dearie me, I think someone's trying to break in, what can I do?" she wimpers
"what?" says roundy helpfully
"there's 2 men at the back fence, they've got everton shirts on" she cries
"they'll be fans after dave's autograph" laughs roundy
Davey pretends he's just arrived
"hello petal, just got that .....Round person is right they'll be fans don't worry" he smiles
"oh davey, I don't think so - I think they're frauds" she says
"what d'ya mean?" frowns Davey
"Well they can't be real Evertonians" she hesitates
.....they've got number 9's on their shirts"
"ROUNDY GET THE FUCKIN CAR, THEY'RE MURDERERS"

BK: Take Rodwell or Fellaini down to cash converters, see what you can get for 'em. Give me half of that, then the rest is yours... Maybe.
That's the whole discussion, according to the Echo anyway.
15 Posted 10/06/2011 at 06:00:55
Uncle Bill promised, and it's already taken longer than expected when he first said it.
And people wonder why he gets called Billy Bullshit!
16 Posted 10/06/2011 at 07:32:28
Or maybe this is more appropriate:
DM: "Bill, how much transfer pot do we have exactly? As someone on toffeeweb wants to know how much we have to spend on players"
BK: "What? If we publish that, every premier club will know how much we have and our negotiations with them and our player wage talks will be up the spout. Get real"
DM: "fair do's, we'll just keep it between ourselves, like".

I knew I should have worn my industrial strength plastic personal hygiene pants this morning ... with excitement like that an accident was bound to happen.
Probably just me, but I think one decent player would be better than a few selections from the free transfer pick and mix.
24 Posted 10/06/2011 at 10:34:21
I want to believe that new players are coming to Goodison every summer. It is important for both fans and players morale for several ins/outs every year or things get very stale. They need to therefore sell a couple of high earners, who are not earning their crust, and bring in lower salaried replacements so that we have at least 5-10 million each summer to do some deals with.
Just for an example, what if a couple of kids were wanting a Christmas present but they did not get anything. When the parents asked why the kids were upset, and they said all the other kids got something, then the parents simple said ?ahh but we spent all our money on food and clothes, you wouldn?t want less would you???

One magnificant whopper of a signing with all of the money having been banked and saved up designed just for this! So perfect! and yet never tried before! Expect the LeBron James of Football in the coming weeks! You heard it here first!

60% of income goes on players wages the rest goes on interest on loans and the black hole called miscellaneous operating expenses(20 million a year).
Ask BB to explain that and get a straight answer.

I don't know whether any of you guys saw Dave Whelan talking after Martinez committed to Wigan. What a great Owner / Chairman. Totally honest and no bull. He was very upfront. saying that he wanted Martinez to improve the squad but he would have to sell to buy in the Summer. At least the Wigan fans know where they stand!
38 Posted 12/06/2011 at 00:57:17
This is the key to our issues, 2.5m when PJ left, where and to whom is this money going? An extra 17.5m is going somewhere, stadium? no, players? no, pay off loans? it appears not, as it is not, as loans are increasing and not going down.
39 Posted 12/06/2011 at 10:49:02
My own opinion is that, the players we can possibly afford wont be worth the Â£80 and its difficult to be anymore frustrated.
Most of the talk in the papers will be shite anyway but its still a buzz to be interested in players we like even if it is from the papers.
There's always the lotto.
40 Posted 13/06/2011 at 13:29:57
Why do you do this to yourselves? Just resign yourself to a later frustration and make peace with it for the time being.
We're skint, and we know we are.
