This document I received, shows that Kenwright has had offers from Man City's owners as well as Mittal and other billionaires.
I'm quite sure, if the document is real, it will signal the end of this board. This is or could be the smoking gun.

I never got to see Mergers and Aquisitions data before...
Perhaps someone can confirm this is really the source?
And what's with the blank entries ? the horse with no name!?

This Qatari mob were rumoured to be interested in buying United last year if memory serves me right.

The Qataris' alleged interest in Everton was reported in the Daily Mail in April 2009. The interest from Indian squillionaire Amil Ambani made the Daily Mirror in September 2008.
These dates tally with those posted on your correspondent's smartphone, as indeed do the entries for Lakshmi Mittal, BCR (Robert Earl), Paul Gregg and BK's True Blue Holdings. So this mergers & acquisitions data - if legit - would simply confirm what's been in the public domain for some time. And would an entry in this register be evidence of an actual offer-to-buy having been made?
22 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:06:37
I agree with you that's its probably a load of potatoes mate, but that's not to say it definitely is.

In light of all that's going on at the moment it's perfect timing; a bit too perfect IMO. I ain't a Kenwright fan, I don't think he has a clue about how to run a club properly, but I do think he is an Evertonian. So why would he knock back bids from 3 of the richest consortium's on the planet? Because it's a load of poo, that's why. Even if Kenwright wanted to knock them back, Earl and the other lot would have been rubbing their hands together if they really had come in for us, and would have forced Bill's hand.
26 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:23:06
I will kick it off: BCR Sports = £898 million!

29 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:26:45
Bill still said no!
30 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:21:52
It lists a number of companies that have previously been rumoured to have made enquiries - so it would confirm those rumours, but (from what I can tell) that's about it.
It doesn't show the figures of the offers made - or whether an actual offer was made at all.
It doesn't really show anything really.
So if legit it leaves a number of questions. Were any serious offers made? How much did they offer? Why weren't any bids accepted? What were the various groups plans for the club? Why did some groups lose interest? What deterred them from buying?
While these questions remain, and whilst the current board continue with their silence policy, I don't really see where this document can take us.
Am I not getting something?
31 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:32:54
If true however..............
32 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:48:59
Why do you have to report enquiries about sales to Companies House? Surely you only report actual deals done.
33 Posted 23/09/2011 at 16:46:16
Here's an example http://zephyr2.bvdep.com/version-2011920/List.serv?context=3EFZ6FVR60G6Z99&_cid=3 anyone not taking time to actually read this would think old Thaksin Shinawatra and Anil Ambani had looked to buy the club, the key is both are rumoured M&A and clearly labelled as such
The OS is creaming itself running with this non story on it - http://www.evertonfc.com/forum/discussion/1647/bus-fake-ma-document.../p1, theres nothing quite like carefully handling a negative media bubble is there?

I was so convinced that deal would be made as well...
41 Posted 23/09/2011 at 18:13:08
Bill Kenwright is not the bumbling imbecile he appears. He is ruthless, self serving, untrustworthy and duplicitous . I believe there is a smoking gun out there. Unfortunately this doesn't look like it.
42 Posted 23/09/2011 at 18:38:14
I have not claimed it is real, and at the same time, I won't dismiss it either.
Would like to know, when the exclusivity deal with Knowsley and Tescos ran out. Maybe Kenwright had to turn bids down.
If it is real, it shows to me that, people are interested in buying Everton, unlike what Bill said: "No one's buying football clubs." Also, there are no billionaires out there interested.
If we have had to turn down serious bids, from the likes of these people, because of the deal for DK, then he and the rest of the board should go straight away.
I have forwarded this on to other people who are connected with Everton, and am awaiting their response. When I have these, I will post them, good or bad.
43 Posted 23/09/2011 at 19:08:42
44 Posted 23/09/2011 at 19:05:54
Of course, there may be some truth in theses bids.
Guess we don't really know, but we could look at some indisputable facts:
No players purchased for cash in over 2 years.
Kings Dock fell through his fingers.
Fortress Sports Fund, NTL, Dan Gosling - just how 'unlucky' can you get?
Proven lies aplenty at Kirkby.
All Assets sold off, Debts at breaking point.
That Recent Interview with Blue Union.
I think there's plenty to be unhappy about anyway.
This little episode changes nothing if a Fake, If it's real, then......
45 Posted 23/09/2011 at 19:12:38
46 Posted 23/09/2011 at 19:04:28
We are continually told that Kenwright somehow controls the local media, how come the stories of the 'three wise bidders' wasn't printed in the Echo?
Suddenly since the emergence of the protest groups, we are treated to censored emails and phone screen shots of evidence that proves that billionaires have been rebuked for years. It starting to smack of the 'there ARE WMD's in Iraq' story eh?

49 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:02:26
Anyway I'm off to meet Elvis on the grassy knoll. We are putting together a bid to buy out Kenwright. If it does succeed then we will be investing 200million in new players and building a new stadium on top of the Liver Building. If it doesn't come off then feel free to post on here that you know for a "fact" that Kenwright doesn't want to sell and knocked back a bid from the Blue suede shoe group
50 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:12:18
51 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:09:58
Check your facts mate. The law was changed in 2007 that companies are NOT required to hold an AGM any more.
You cant blame bill for that.....
52 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:16:50
53 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:14:41
"what happened to the fictional three bidders that BK was adamant he was seeing the week of the protest."
When did BK suggest he was adamant at meeting anyone? Like I said, I thought it came from the internet and that BK had not made any comment on it. Is the 'adamant' part something you have added on yourself? Thanks for the clarification.
I fully understand that you want rid of the current board with a passion, I am under no illusion that you will never change your views on that. But re-reading your reponse, you are really in danger of sounding like some mad-man conspiracy theorist with too much time on his hands. Thats the first time I even heard that Kenwrights mother was at the match, what relevance does it have with anything? And whats this about Kenwrights face being 'timed' during matches? Are you actually counting how often he is shown?
If the club dismiss something in the press, you advise us 'how quick they are to defend their position, no smoke without fire, sounds like a cover up etc.'. If they dont comment, you suggest there must be something behind it! Anybody that voices an opinion on supporting the club has been 'wheeled out'. Even though the majority of them are from outside the club. Anybody that supports the BU is praised as 'the enlightened'. It sounds bonkers Gav, it really does.
54 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:50:27
Sorry Gavin, I just lost the text of your message #48... Damn program does it when I least expect it, and I'm screwed if I didn't copy the text. I don't suppose you kept a copy? Click back in your webpage history...
55 Posted 23/09/2011 at 20:54:27
There are no details as to the amounts that were bid and how far the process progressed in each case. For all we know The groups could have got a certain way down the line and then pulled out of the purchase for one reason or another.
It is interesting to note that there are no bids that post-date the rejection of Tescodome.
56 Posted 23/09/2011 at 21:01:20
Having spoken, to the owner of a Premier League club this evening, there are minor inaccuracies in the document, including the basic poor layout, hence the screen grab from an iPhone no doubt.
Surely incidents like this just undermine the message that the majority of Blues fans are trying to convey and that is that we need investment and quick....which makes me think this could be the work of the Dark Lord himself.....Ian Ross.
57 Posted 23/09/2011 at 21:01:53
I thought it answered you fully Dan... I'm surprised at your response - well mildly anyway. You accuse Gavin of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, but you're increasingly relying on semantics to support your blind loyalty.
I agree with Gavin that the "smoking gun" seems more like a red herring. The fact that it's being paraded on the OS while as pointed out there was no denial of the interested parties during the club's shameless propaganda campaign in the build up to the march, perhaps concisely answers your question Dan.
58 Posted 23/09/2011 at 21:07:56
You cant blame bill for that....."
thats right Sean but the law doesnt say that AGM's should not take place, it was his decision to stop them because he was being asked questions that he didnt like!
He didnt have the intelect or acumen to handle tough questions so he took the easy way out..
59 Posted 23/09/2011 at 21:16:48
Tim Cahill to denounce the protest
Andy Gray to denounce the protest
BKappearing in one of the most self serving stomach churning gushing pile of woe is me utter bullshit by Martin Samuels in the Daily Mail
A sudden unexplained rise of previously unheard of fans appearing on multiple web boards claiming to wanting to speak for the "silent majority"
The appearance of BK's 92 year old mother on the very day of the protest march to deflect media attention from him and his sudden appearance on the screens - ask when his mother was last wheeled to the game and when his face was popped up during a game before - did anyone see it at any point during the cup match or during the Wigan game?
Coincidence? Do you genuinely believe a sudden concerted media barrage timed to a tee with the protest seeking media attention of its own isnt a form of dealing with negative media bubbles then I'd like to hear just why.
Regarding the M&A "smoking gun" I've posted already that this is bunkum and not a smoking gun so no claims from me that this is a stake to drive through Black Bill and questioned why this is even getting the same level of attention that supposed bidders haven't, if the club had been using the media for the best part of the week leading up to the protest and since then how come not a single one liner denying this story as nonsense?
Daniel the truth is out there and it isn't black and white, it also isn't as ridiulous as the pro BK lot claim to be debunked. When pertinent questions such as Earl's involvement via BCR and subsequent disappearance from the face of the club - who genuinely bought those shares? What is Green's involvement at Everton and more importantly how is BK beholden to him? What has been the final word on all of the previous mythical investors that BK has dangled during annual season ticket renewals - remember those FSF, Russian Billionaire, the US based Evertonian that actually denied it himself with no further mention by the club, these multiple interested parties that BK has spoken about in the BU interview which didnt amount to the same numbers he has previously told the press, the three the week of the protest that the club didnt ONCE deny despite the CEO, PR Director and Chairman, ex player and current player ALL speaking to the press either face to face or through releases.
Your statement regarding the local press needs a little clarity as you've either ostriched yourself or just nt read it. In Dave Prentice's first attempt at recent defence of BK through a poor article he responded to the many postings back at him after his editor asked him to respond, in his own words he admitted he is weary of writing anything that upsets the current incumbents as it earned him and his colleagues a ban from both Goodison and Finch Farm. Does that seriously sound like an independent media route?
But if you dont agree thats your perogative eh? Just dont try to belittle those who dont agree and can see past the bullshit.

Nail on head on pretty much every aspect
The disappearing fans thing is certainly very telling and your right about BK's face being on the big screen at "certain" moments then disappearing when the heat is seemingly off
It all gives you a very bad taste in the mouth, like my 92 year old Gma's cake made with flora.............urghh

This is something I've heard quite a few fans saying recently, there's even a website keeping track of the exact time down to seconds.
Problem is it's just not true. In the last two years we have signed magaye gueye, Joao silva and apostolos vellios for cash. Not much cash maybe, bit still cash. There are enough valid points in your post without just making things up
75 Posted 24/09/2011 at 12:06:59
Hope you know what you're doing
76 Posted 24/09/2011 at 20:35:23
The debate about lack of player purchases appears to have always been about lack of players bought for the first team. Denis and Royston have very recently been brought in but the two are loans not purchases and in the last two years the club has shed/lost/sold far more than even these added together and claimed as first team players.
