Is there a press conference planned or have I missed it?

Piss up in a brewery. RAFA OUT – only joking, kind of.

Yeah, that is simply not good enough. This is looking like a best business option, sorry mates.

Not one question asking the owner why he has split the fan base with Rafa's appointment.

The interview would have been carried out by a club employee or at least by somebody reliant on the club's money, and I'm not even sure the answers came directly from Moshiri himself, it was so scripted it was untrue.

It will never happen.
Because Moshiri is, in fact, a very smart man who avoids public attention, and the last place he should be (for his own benefit) is in front of a skeptical, aggressively questioning press pool.
He will have learned from his original management at accounting firms like Ernst & Young and Deloitte Touche, and later from his mentor Usmanov, that absolutely nothing good can happen for you at a press conference in an uncontrolled setting.
So quit dreaming, boys and girls. This PR pap is likely the sum total of what we will hear from him.

Don't want to talk directly to us. Fine, we'll do the talking. This isn't just a cozy little business arrangement to be PR'd. There is a culture here and it damn well better be respected or the party is over for the Aristocrats.

Fuck off with the CVs, Moshiri, you dullard. Carlo's CV was a corker and look how that worked out.
Moshiri is the Iranian Prince Charles, dumb as fuck and rich by accident of circumstance (pal of Uzi) rather than personal endeavour.
Whatever one thinks of Benitez, he has no leeway whatsoever so the odds are massive that it will go tits up. Moshiri won't know what's hit him when it does.

Maybe they don't think they need the fans on board at Everton, because it's different when you actually own the club. (Very big mistake!)
Whilst I've learned from what Mike G has just said, I do think that Moshiri or someone in the Everton boardroom has got to speak to the fans soon, explaining in detail the reason behind this divisive appointment, and the real direction they want us to go in, considering the lack of strength and depth in our current squad.

Well, there is one thing he won't be counting and that's my ticket money for the matches and I would urge everyone else to do the same. It's the only way this bigot will take note.

I agree, but I don't think it will happen. Kenwright won't, already having distanced himself. Moshiri feels he has done enough. Denise and Marcel will only enthuse about his arrival.

We have an Abramovich situation here, with the same links to Putin and all that goes with that. These chaps make Peter Johnson look like Father Christmas.
Let's just hope their plan comes off, they make their money, and we are moved on. But marching on Goodison, or whatever... that ain't gonna fly. Not with these people. The last thing we want to do is tick them off.

Thick-skinned, don't care what anyone agrees with them and continue doing what they want to do. And, just deny everything if accused of foul play.
Crimea. Remember the pictures of occupying Russian soldiers. Only they had no markings, so the official line from Moscow was "Not us, m'lord. They're not Russian. Nothing to see here".
Weeks later, Crimea annexed by Russia and Putin flies in as the victor having denied it to the entire world.
As you indirectly say, ruthless in their intent and don't really care what anyone thinks of their actions.
