Is Finch Farm — Everton's state-of-the-art training ground — out of bounds to the British Press?
I went into my local library to wait for my wife who was getting her hair done. I read most of the newspapers... hardly a mention of Everton in them. All our rival clubs in the North West seem to get pages of information. Yet Evertonians are like the proverbial mushroom kept in the dark and fed crap.
PS: The wife's hairdo was nice!

Nevermind... Any worthwhile stories and we'll link then in here.
As for meaningless newspaper blather, you can't get much worse than some of the mind-numbing utter drivel the Echo and the Post feel compelled to pen in the mistaken belief that they are providing meaningful coverage of Everton FC. The real question is why don't THEY do some real investigative journalism?!?

Contrary to belief the club is not run well, it was in a mess before the GFC hit and reversely the lack of money to spend left them with the tag of a well run club. Some people will believe their own hype.
People need to care about the way the club is run every bit as much as the team on the pitch as one dictates their ability to perform or succeed. The future of this club is held by a few who do not represent the people, theirs is not, and should not be a democracy, but it should not be a basket case either.
They should make a movie about it and call it "The incompetents"

Regarding leasing the money we would have had to spend purchasing FF was used to maintain the squad and that is the first priority at the moment. How many would be happy if we were say 5 places and £5 million a year worse off but owned FF (saving £1.5 millions year)? I am not completely sure of my amounts but you get the principle.
We take a pragmatic approach and so far so good. It needs to improve but the new tv deal illustrates the earning growth available even without a new home when we put the squad first.

The laziness and lack of integrity in British journalism is truly shocking. When I began following Everton, I thought the media was trustworthy and I was lead to believe that we were going to sign a bunch of different players. It is a huge disadvantage to British sport fans to not have a respectable, reliable press.
ESPN's soccernet is the only site I actually trust for football news. They at least mention that speculation is merely speculation. Even at Soccernet, though, there is the big club bias that we all share a disdain for.
