Maybe it’s time to redefine “the Everton Way”? Maybe it’s time for realism rather than idealism.
It is my belief that the more information is shared, the greater the level of understanding and “buy-in” into what is being proposed from all parties.
I wonder about our ability, indeed desire “to run where the brave dare not go”. Part of our DNA I believe as Evertonians is to “reach the unreachable star” – let’s do what’s required to achieve it.
The thinking at Everton hasn’t changed in more than two decades, even after 3 years of Moshiri’s involvement which is long enough to evaluate, to move on those associated with the past, and to know that businesses are only as good as the people leading them
As the more forward-thinking clubs look for growth away from traditional broadcasting & commercial income sources, what will Everton's response be?
The reasons for the club’s reluctance to enter the market this January are very clear. The “financial conditions” referred to by Silva are on the basis of very obvious commercial considerations not per se driven by compliance issues relating to FFP.
The second piece supporting the case for a 60,000 capacity at the Blues' new stadium
A focus on the business case and the impact a smaller stadium capacity has on ticket prices (particularly season tickets)
Paul sat down for an exclusive interview with Everton's Director of Finance today.
The story of this year’s accounts is one of huge spending with increases way beyond the increases in income funded by player sales, capital injections from Moshiri, the use of debt facilities and some increase in commercial income.
The question for the Everton Board is how do we achieve revenue growth when there appear to be limits on our 3 main income streams, broadcasting, matchday and commercial?
Just how complex is it, and is it different for Everton than any other club?
A look at how Everton financed the last transfer window's activity, and the consequences going forward
Amid suggestions that the club's hierarchy are considering a capacity of between 52,000 and 55,000, the argument and justification for 60,000 at Everton's proposed dockside stadium are worth repeating
Brands and Silva have to restructure the footballing side of the organisation. That cannot be done in one window, it might be done in three or four. It will require a huge amount of patience from fans but it also urgently requires an explanation from those in charge
That was the stunningly simple assessment from one of the world’s greatest investors, Warren Buffett, when asked to define risk.
