Addressing the central issue of whether Kenwright has either the capability, or the inclination, to find a serious buyer or investor in this great club of ours, I would like to pose a hypothetical question........ if you were lucky (or hard working) enough to have amassed a couple of billion quid, what would you want to hear from Kenwright to convince you Everton FC were worth investing in or buying?
Or, to put it another way, what would you look to realistically achieve from that investment of your hard earned, in the current economic and football climate?
I ask this as a question, irrespective of which side of the 'Kenwright' fence you are ? or, if like me ? you are still sat on it... and in the hope it may prompt some serious response and further debate.
I've supported this love of mine since 1966 and, although we have had considerably more depressing phases in our history, I doubt we have had any more interesting, or more challenging. There are so many external factors now affecting our position as a club ? mainly of an economical and commercial nature, and not necessarily within our control.
Right on cue ? watching the early stages of the Fulham v Blackburn match on Sky ? and comment has just been made regarding the Blackburn manager's meeting yesterday with the owners of the club. nothing special about that except he had to fly to India for the meeting and then fly straight back ready for this Sunday televised game.
Anyway, I thought the question interesting enough to ask. I await the variety of responses that will hopefully follow.

I'd love to put the replies to this post in a letter and pop it into his letter box.
Only problem which of his three £100m+ pads to choose from.

I am certainly not the only one, if BK happens to read this (very unlikely) as he has not replied to any of my letters so far, and the reason for this is that he is too busy searching for an investor, here's hoping that he is successful, and that he also buys a lottery ticket, in preferably the euro millions one. The club needs an overhaul from those at the front desk to the shareholders, they all need to look at themselves and ask, "Am I doing the best for Everton?" As for BK, the fence is becoming uncomfortable.

£24M were and also what is the total debt and who has the Mortgages,
I would want to know how much he would want for his shares.
as soon as he mentioned a figure over £20M
I would walk away.
If the reports of the asking price being £100M then indeed he is living in cloud cookoo land.
Why why will he not state the price he wants for the club??

2. Are the club's most valuable assets (Baines, Fellaini, Barkley, and Moyes) secured long-term?
3. How much quality is coming through the youth system?
