Kaminski steps away from Everton takeover talks

| 16/01/2023 13comments  |  Jump to last

Maciek Kaminski, the American/Polish real estate magnate who had been in talks with Farhad Moshiri about either investment into or a full takeover of Everton is reportedly no longer in contact regarding any interest in the club.

Having initially been approached regarding an investment stake to help fund the Everton Stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, Kaminski was believed over last summer to be trying to thrash out a deal whereby he would buy out Moshiri's 94% shareholding completely.

The Telegraph now report that while Kaminski has bought Greek club Panetolikos in line with his plan to "acquire a portfolio of sports franchises and media", he has not had any contact with Moshiri or his representatives regarding Everton since before the World Cup.

For his part, Moshiri has insisted that the club is not for sale, restating his commitment to Everton and the completion of the stadium in an open letter to supporters last June.

The British-Iranian billionaire has come in for mounting criticism of his running of the club, however, with thousands of fans staying behind after Saturday's Premier League fixture against Southampton to demand change at the top and the way in which Everton are run.

Oh dear, this could be the final straw for Tony Abrahams.

Although I'm puzzled: Tony has been telling us for weeks that a takeover is imminent, that Farhad was selling up... that reliable but of course unnamed sources were telling him this seemingly on a daily basis.

Yet this lot had not had any contact with Moshiri or his representatives regarding Everton since before the World Cup? Strange...

Unless it's an entirely different group of Americans that Tony (and only Tony) knows about but it's all very hush-hush, since there's been no mention of such anywhere else that I can find.

ps: For what it's worth, the club have told the Fans Advisory Board that the club is Not for Sale. Surely they wouldn't be dishonest about that, would they?

Are we the supporters to blame for this as well?

I'll wait for the club statement via Jim White.

Maybe it's the PSG owners Tony was on about. We live in hope.

We're going down with Moshiri in charge.. and Kenwright is the root of it all. Worrying times.

I wonder if someone put him in a headlock?

Michael, put that sharpened stick away and stop poking our Tony ! He’s only passing on what he’s hearing, take it or leave it, don’t shoot the postman when he brings you January’s gas bill!

I’m not sure there will be too much disappointment anyway that this investor has stepped away.

This ship sailed months ago, Michael, but I'm sure you have seen my post on another thread, when I was talking to Clive earlier today?

It does sound like the complete opposite of all those wasted 24/7; Kenwright years, though Michael, the years when Everton was for sale, but couldn't find a buyer anywhere!

Oh we had potential buyers Tony, but none of them wanted Betty Turpin's son to stay on.

Why would anyone come near Everton now, probably going down, with the new stadium around their neck?

Would need a deluded billionaire Evertonian, and Big Kock would still block it if he and his big coat couldn't keep the train set

Who in the right mind would buy this club, the state we are now in unless it was an absolute knockdown price?

Its value has nosedived, I suppose it comes down to how deep our owners pockets are and how much of a gambler he is.

Kaminski pulling back from buying the club is a bit like when Alan Pardew took himself out of the running for the England job. Was never going to happen.

Moshiri is desperate to sell. He lost interest in the football quite a few years ago. Had he been as astute with a football business as he is with property, we'd be in good shape. Unfortunately he's absolutely clueless about running a football club.

I know new owners can be a mixed bag but, whatever Moshiri has been, he is now a terrible owner. We need new owners in before things will improve.

I’ve searched for the post you refer to but I can’t find it. What exactly did you say and can you offer any hope of a possible takeover?
