As an aside; does anyone kbow if the diatribition deal woth them is world wide exclusivity? We must be missing out hugely abroad- In the US for example we must be missing out on millions of dollars . I mean Howard, Donovan and to a lesser extent McBride and even Joe Max-Moore (actually scrap the last one) having been blues must give us an edge surely to goodness?

Add in the 㿡M a year from Chevrolet, the c.㿀M a year from AON for sponsoring the training ground and kits and they are picking up c.𧵄M a year for the forseeable future before even kicking a ball and regardless of presence in CL or otherwise.
This is 𧵄M before the Sky, BT, overseas TV money rolls in, before tickets, before boxes, before sizeable merchandising sales or any of the other lucrative licensing deals. This should see them jumping from 𧹚M turnover in 2013-14 to overtake Madrid's record 𧹡M turnover, even without CL competition. With the 㿞M+ of a decent CL run, they could be knocking on the door of 𧺬M.
Everton's total annual turnover for 2012-13 was 䀂.4M for everything. Granted that should be higher for this season with the new BT, Sky and overseas TV deals but I'd be prepared to bet it'll still fall a long way short of just these basic sponsorships.
With Man City's deeper pockets and pretty impressive wedges at Chelsea and Arsenal my point is I guess, that it's an absolute miracle we're competing with these teams on any level.
When you consider that the likes of Liverpool, Spurs and even Newcastle have cash to throw around and turnover at many clubs will rival ours, Everton must surely be the undisputed best pound for pound club in the entire PL.
Surely there should be a tin pot for that?

Doing really well with the uplift of televised games on the back of our performance last season ain't we? Erm.....

Plus, between August and November, we are on Sky four times. Media adored Harry Redknapp's QPR are on about six times.

Getting the RS and Man Utd fixtures away so early when we have a fully fit squad could not have come at a better time also.

After 28 February, our toughest games, on paper, are Man Utd and Spurs.... BOTH at home!
I realise other games will be tough against 'surprise packages' and teams battling for survival.
But if we can keep ourselves in contention for Top 4 come early March then we have a great chance of a late surge to secure our place on the gravy train of Champions League.
I know things are never straight forward but it does seem we have been given a kind run of fixtures to finish the season with.
Or am I just thinking too far ahead?

One game at a time.
Win that game... move on to the next.
Before we know it, you'll be wanting a five-year plan.
Isn't that what ruined the USSR?
