Although stated that Everton have been for sale for the last few years, there has been no positive interest that we know of as such.
However, if an opportunity ever came up whereby you were able to approach a mega-millionaire, and you were able to have 5 to 10 minutes of his/her time, how would you go about trying to sell them Everton FC?
I know that this is an extremely short and possibly strange request, but I am sure that the majority of TW readers would also be interested in reading some of the more positive views of those with the ability to string words and sentences together coherently.
Come on, let's hear some positive stuff about our club ? we always seem to have a lot to say as to how we can do things better... and you never know ? that elusive millionaire may well cross our path in the not too distant future!

Kenwright and Moyes in tandem appearing on the show in their best attire and pleading their cases etc. It would be a fun event. Interesting idea, but 'I'm out'.

Douglas: "Let me get this straight, for just £30 million, you could have had a state-of-the-art stad...."

- Possibly the best youth set up in British football, producing notably Rooney but many other premier League footballer s such as Jeffers, Michael Ball, Richard Dunne etc. These 3 alone generated over £20 million when we sold them. We now have Rodwell and Barkley coming through...
- If the person looking to buy us wanted to increase his global profile, we have the biggest name in Australia in Tim Cahill, the American no.1 in Tim Howard, and as much as I don't like him, a Russian international in Billy. Plus 3 players in the England set up.
- The 4th most successful club in England. Rich history and massive fan base. Needs no further explanation.
- Value for money. Chelsea and City have had to spend half a billion each to get to where they are. I honestly don't think Everton would need as much investment as those clubs. If our debt (circa £45 million was cleared), we would no longer be paying £4.5 million a year in interest, transforming us from a loss-making business to one that breaks even.
By the way, there has been plenty of interest - every time there's a protest Bill finds 3 more people he is in discussions with. Trouble is, when you won't tell them how much you want for the club, or that price is too high, those buyers tend to disappear!

But why pay the higher price, when it's only a matter of time before the banks really start pressing? The vultures are sitting up in the branches waiting for the prey to fall down and stop moving. Once that happens, they'll start circling and descending. EFC ownership is stumbling badly but still moving.

Moyes has every faith in his boss and, I am sure, will be rewarded with a new contract soon after Christmas. It won't suit everyone but he's as good as there is at making silk purses...
