Anyone else interested in what 777 Partners have been doing at Genoa these past 2 years?

Early days since the club was acquired back in September 2021 but it might indicate what’s in store for us if the takeover goes through.

Of course, the 'glass half-empty' types will answer: they are a bunch of shysters trying to get Genoa fans to pay for a £5m training facility.  There is some truth to this, although it seems to operate as a bond (which creates a degree of fan ownership) rather than a handout.  I’m not best placed to go into this any further, but others might be more clued up on these financials.

I’m more interested in how Genoa are faring on the pitch and developing their squad under 777’s ownership. 

A quick timeline

Genoa were a poorly resourced club with a very weak squad before being bought by 777 Partners after the summer window closed in 2021.  That summer, they had a net spend of about £20M which left them with a squad valued as 16th in Serie A.  They finished 18th in the 2021-22 season, and went down to Serie B.

They had a net spend of about -£10M that summer (a relegation clear out) before being promoted as runners up in Serie B in May 2023.  This summer, they had a net spend of about £10M – giving them the 13th most valuable squad in the division (where they are currently in 15th place after 8 games).  Having returned to Serie A at the first attempt, they're better placed now, in effect, than they were when 777 Partners took over.

What does this tell us?

Unsurprisingly, 777 Partners will not operate us as a vanity project by throwing money at us. These guys are not sugar daddy owners.  The key objective is likely to be survival in order to maintain Premier League revenues, with slow and sustainable progress into the top half of the table.

I can’t imagine they will think it’s worth spending, say, £150M on players just to finish 9th instead of 13th.  The transfer budget will be driven largely by player sales, but they will loosen the purse strings sufficiently to ensure the squad is strong enough to stay in the Premier League and achieve immediate goals.

What does recruitment look like?

It seems to fall into a few categories:

Age 26 to 30(+): Some spending here but very low cost. Either free, loan or just a few million here or there on each player.  

Examples include a few pretty good players in the form of:

·       Malinovsky (AM) from Marseille on loan

·       Strootman (DM) from Marseille, free

·       Martin (LB) from Mainz, free

·       Thorsby (CM) from Union Berlin, loan

·       Martinez (GK) from Leipzig, £3.5M.

Up to age 24: This is where the main spending takes place, with players generally costing no more than about £5M, each.  This looks like they are generally “doing a Brighton” by hunting out talented young players to develop at low cost, in order to enable future transfer budgets driven by player sales.  I suspect Retegui was bought as an exception to the general strategy to help ensure they stay up and because he should increase in value (he’s probably doubled in value already).  However, he is probably a bit older and a bit more expensive than they are generally looking for.

· Retegui (24): highly sought after Italian / Argentine striker bought for £12M from Tigres in Argentina.

· Dragusin (21): talented Romanian CB brought in from Juventus for £5.5M.

· Matturro (19): talented teenage Uruguyan CB bought for £3M from Defensor in Uruguay.

· DeWinter (21): talented young Belgian CB brought in on loan from Juventus.

Youth team

Alongside all of this, it’s possible that the most significant business is being done with the youth academy.  Over the past couple of seasons, Genoa’s U19 side has bought a lot of players from other clubs in Italy and also from Romania, Switzerland, Sweden, Greece and Serbia.  The U19 side also includes players from Bulgaria, Iceland, Portugal, Belgium and Algeria.

It looks like there was a bit of this sort of activity before 777 but it certainly seems like it’s ramped up in volume post-takeover. It looks like another strategic approach to improving the playing staff quality at low cost. 

What sort of players might Everton be looking at in summer 2024?

I expect we’re going to be working on the very same lines.  Subject to Premier League financial rules, I think 777 might sanction a net spend of up to about £15M summer 2024 but any decent transfer kitty will have to be enabled by player sales.

The categories of players will be along the same lines, with some of the price tags uplifted from Serie A levels to Premier League levels.  I think that probably means:

·   Apart from the odd exception, fees of no more than about £10M to £15M.

·   A focus on buying in young players (up to age 21 ish) for development.

·   A much higher volume of teenagers for our academy, and from a much more international network.

·   Players over age 26 on loan, free or very low sums only.

·   Hunting for value from richer clubs’ benches and lower cost markets like South America.

·    No more vanity signings of broken superstars like Rodriguez or Alli.

·    No more big spending on average players like Keane, Bolasie, Walcott etc.

·    No big transfer fees like Sigurdsson and Richarlison.

·    Possibly no more of the deals Thelwell has been doing for the likes of Beto and Onana, where we agree a fairly big fee but only pay on the drip to make it affordable.

What does the future hold?

I think it probably all means that we’ll be a mid-table side for the foreseeable future – but edging further and further away from the drop zone and closer and closer to the European places.  Any manager is going to have to materially outperform the level of investment and quality in the squad if we are to win trophies or get into Europe.

On that basis, I would think they consider Sean Dyche to be a good fit for the short to medium term – but ambitions may change once the squad is in better shape and we’re up and running in a glamorous new stadium.  This isn't going to satisfy those who want to keep up with the Joneses, I know, but it should keep us in the Premier League and stop us going bust (which wasn't assured by any stretch under Moshiri).  And there's a chance of cups and European football in the short term with a bit of luck and a huge amount of hard work.  

It might also mean a player like Phillips on loan in January, just to steady the ship from Afcon, but probably not to buy – and maybe the next Branthwaite or Calvert-Lewin emerging for the U21s. Summer 2024, however, could represent a big overhaul of the squad.

Maybe the 7th Cavalry is on its way – Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani has withdrawn from the process to buy Manchester United, BBC Sport has been told.

Could it be a guy who can wipe away all the debt in a stroke might put in a bid for a historic, nay legendary Premier League club, with a brand new stadium? Hope springs eternal.

I'm not a fan of the 777 Partners bid. Too much negative noise surrounds them.

Thanks for that article, Robert. The research you've done backs up my instincts, which is basically that 777 Partners might not be the nicest bunch, but that they've got into football to make money, and that only works if Everton remain in the Premier League.

Provided it doesn't cross lines imposed by the football authorities and by the law, anything that involves basic competence has got to be an improvement on the last few years.

There's an interesting article written by Jonathan Wilson in today's Observer focussing on the transition of Sunderland from the benign fan ownership of Bob Murray to ownership by US private equity. Sunderland's demise is a salutary lesson that it doesn't always work out, but the underlying focus of the article was that the potential for profit created by the value of TV rights following the arrival of satellite TV, which enabled the biggest clubs to acquire a global fan base, made ownership by oligarchs, nation states and private equity of what were previously regarded as community assets inevitable.

Wilson quotes a Sunday Times article describing football as “a slum sport played in slum stadiums and increasingly watched by slum people”. That was written in 1985 (and we all know what happened that year) at a time when watching football either in person or on TV was a very different experience to today.

Like it or not, that change has only been made possible by the money that has flowed into the game since then. The tragedy for clubs like Everton and Sunderland is that those in power at those clubs during the transition period were never smart enough to make the right decisions at the right time.

They don’t seem to have much cash at present and may have to borrow or sell to pay Moshiri. Their philosophy seems to be that clubs have to generate their their own cash to spend on players. It will probably be a financial struggle for a long time.

There is certainly big money to be made from football even now. Not every owner loses their shirt like Moshiri will have to. I appreciate Man Utd will attract a premium well above Everton, but the Glazers only spent about £250M of their own money to buy Man Utd and now sit on an asset that could easily net them north of £5B. Not bad business and presumably a smaller potential version of that is what attracts 777 Partners.

Genoa and the other clubs they have bought reveal their approach. They are basically in the business of buying distressed assets, with the low(ish) price giving room for capital growth. And that is what we are, a distressed asset.

I suspect they will do what the Glazers did and buy the club with other people's money (that is after all the PE model) meaning we will face large interest payments and will need to find a way of funding this from the club's operations.

Hence I think Robert's assessment of what will happen player and transfer-wise is likely accurate and I for one would settle for moving towards mid-table in the near term, given the precipice we are currently on.

It would be nice to think the Qataris might come in for us, but when they buy outright, they tend to go for flagship assets like Harrods or Claridges and let's face it, we are currently more House of Fraser and Travelodge.

Thank you, Robert, for a rational, objective analysis.

Everton need above all else, financial viability and stability. It will be a long-term process. Possibly one that, at my advanced age, I will not see come to fruition.

But I have seen Everton win four titles and two FA Cups and one European title. My younger son and his son have seen us win nothing and one has to hope that Everton can give them and all younger supporters something to look forward to.

An agreement has been signed with 777 by Moshiri.

It is subject to approval by the Premier League, the FA and the Financial Conduct Authority. 777 co-founder Wander said in an interview with the Financial Times two weeks ago.

"The key objective is likely to be survival in order to maintain Premier League revenues, with slow and sustainable progress into the top half of the table."

This sort of prognosis terrifies me it's another warm-worded summary of what we've tried since Peter Johnson. Admittedly we are the only also rans not to get relegated in that time but it can't last. Newcastle now complete a Top 7 and clubs like Villa, Brighton and others are far stronger plus we have the drag anchor of a new stadium to finance.

Our reliance on a goodly amount of deadwood below us is getting thinner by the year. If this is our game plan, we are Donald Ducked!

This whole 777 Partners takeover is very depressing. Even if they do run the business side of things better than the shit-show we've all witnessed under Moshiri's tenure, the best we can realistically hope for in the future is 'the best of the rest' outside the Top 6 or 7.

To many, that would seem like paradise at the moment after two back-to-back relegation dogfights. But, is it too much to ask for to have owners that are both competent and willing to invest plenty of their own money?

Back in 2016, when Moshiri became majority shareholder, there was a real sense of optimism from the fans because we thought we'd found an owner who was willing to invest in the squad and deliver a new stadium. To his credit, he delivered on both counts.

Unfortunately though, Moshiri proved grossly incompetent when it came to employing the correct staff in all departments of the club. The player recruitment side of things being the worst of all, which eventually landed us in hot water with P&S. And we are where we are today because of it.

I sincerely hope the 777 Partners takeover is not ratified by the Premier League as it's very difficult to find any evidence from their portfolio of clubs that they've contributed positively on any counts.

It's much easier to find evidence pointing towards allegations of late payments, corruption and fan unrest.

I worry the best-case scenario with 777 Partners is a return to the Moyes - Kenwright years when we were supposed to feel grateful for finishing 7th because we didn't have the funds to crack that glass ceiling.

Not a future I feel optimistic about.

Robert - good and encouraging article - that would do me. Personally I am fed up with clubs paying outrageous amounts of money for players and then to make matters even worse millions of pounds a year in wages while many of their fans are on the breadline. It is despicable really.

I love a bargain. My dad, God rest his soul, gave me two little sayings that I have never forgotten.

“Enough is plenty”
“Half a loaf is better than no bread”.

Robert, I was liking the article until the "It might also mean a player like Phillips on loan in January, just to steady the ship" — steady his bank balance more like. I think him swanning round Finch Farm wearing his utterly undeserved medals would piss some players off.

Please God we don't add him to our collection of useless cast-offs. Why can't we go and scout the lower leagues anymore that we have to go get hyped-up bums in?

My dear departed true blue (also called Laurie) Dad's fav saying was "So long as you have money in your back pocket you can put your two fingers up to them and say fuck you!"

Everton don't have the money anymore but it would be nice if we could put two fingers up to a few, starting next Saturday at the Devil's Kitchen.

Barry, you may as well sum up the purchase as, "In pursuit of mediocrity". Forget aspiration, forget ambition. Be thankful you are in the Premier League. About sums that up. It's the final kick in the wotsits from Moshiri, that worked out well for you Bill, he will carry the can.

Yes, we did want savvy owners, professional in approach and action, but also someone who aspires to success, not just existence. Everton Football Club are a high cash turnover business, merely staying in the Premier League guarantees increased value if run to break even. Profit from sale in 3 years is potentially huge for basically running a low-cost model.

Make no mistake, 777 Partners are not in it for success as we understand it, they are in it for profit. Nothing else.

19 Posted 16/10/2023 at 01:03:42
Good, solid analysis as usual, Robert.

Mark #14, unless another buyer suddenly appears out of an Aladdin's Lamp in the Middle East, the only alternative to 777's approval is that the club stays in Moshiri's hands, and I'm pretty sure the club can't survive that any longer.

And Christine #18, without existence there can be no success. Let's get the patient off the critical list first before we start him chasing Olympic gold.

Christine Foster
20 Posted 16/10/2023 at 06:04:44

I get what you are saying, first things first, but if the vision they have is to just survive, then it's a No from me. Of course the priority is to improve our standing to mid-table, but if it's our only aspiration, and that appears to be the case, then it's clear they are not in it for the success but the value proposition of being in the Premier League.

If one looked at Newcastle, which I hate to do, but their aspiration is Champions League and to challenge for the league title. A different class of owner perhaps? They have money and aspiration, our potential owners have neither.

As always, very detailed analysis Robert.

I don't know how you do it. I'm too heart-on-sleeve and emotional, for which I often get it in the neck from my youngest brother, son and even now, my sister, who suggested I shouldn't go to the derby.

I'll never, ever fear them. And the authorities won't escort me anywhere.

In terms of the potential owners, I'm as nervous as anyone. Who knows? Many thought the Moshiri takeover was the answer and look how that went?

Whoever takes over Everton needs to put their own people in place and rid the club of the one constant that has more than seen his time.

I don't want to turn it into a Kenwright debate, but it is more than over time for change.

23 Posted 16/10/2023 at 08:28:24
Jack @1, the thought has crossed my mind too but there is probably three main mitigating factors as to why we won't be getting our own Sheikh sugar daddy.

1) As much as there are still many fans who think we are as big as Man Utd and Liverpool et al, we are not. We do not have the global appeal for one of the world's richest men to consider us seriously.

2) The financial restrictions will rule us out for them, it is not a platform for them to purchase marquee signings.

3) It would have to be a long-term investment – playing a slow patient game, clearing debt, transitioning to the new stadium etc.

That said, if someone was prepared to do it, they might think they can get us for a steal, the restrictions would also provide an opportunity to get the basics right, youth, recruitment team, vision etc. It's a fool's hope sadly and we will be lumbered with 777 Partners who I hope fair better than Bill and Farhad, aka 666 Partners.

Thanks for the clip, Michael (21). He says that they want the same thing for us as Genoa. On Genoa he's on record as saying “It's been too many years since the last Scudetto. We want to work to return to those years of glory, it takes time to bring Genoa back to the top of the standings, but we are ambitious”.

There is no mention of having mid-table as the ultimate ambition. There's also nothing wrong with the club trying to become self-sustainable. Of course it could all be bullshit but on this one at least it's a huge assumption to interpret mid-table as their ultimate ambition. There are enough reasons out there to make us wary of 777 Partners but this isn't one of them.

With all due respect, that mentality grates me.

We are a big club. Always have been, always will be.

I wonder how the Manchester City supporters felt when they hadn't won a title for decades and lived in the shadow of their neighbours, dropping into the 3rd tier of English football?

Manchester United, Tottenham, Newcastle and Aston Villa have been relegated since the last time we were.

I am too focussed on Saturday to care about what happens this month or this year and I'm usually a strategic thinker.

We are going to the Devil's pit. That is what is front of my eyes right now.

Steve, taking you up on your first point. A club with nowhere near our history ( in terms of silverware ) in the shadow of hugely famous neighbour and with a shiny new stadium was deemed worthy of oil money.
Another side with a nice ground and good fan base but hasn't won an argument in well.over 50 years is seen as worthy of major investment.
So, really, why not us. Especially as you know who is less likely to be able to.put the mockers on it ?

Steve 23, I'm with you mate. Too many Evertonians (me included) live in the past. We consider ourselves a “big club” (so do I) but we've been slowly dying, bar some “good times”, for the last 35 years.

I've travelled the world and when anyone asks me where I'm from, I say Liverpool first and then England. 99% of the time I'm asked, A) If I know the Beatles and, B) If I support the red shite?

My usual answers are, A) Yes. I'm BFF with Paul McCartney and, B) Fuck off, I support Everton. To which the usual reply is, who are they?

I've given up trying to explain that we are the originals. The top dogs in the city until the '70s. The greatest team the world has ever seen etc… They just look at me as if I'm a lunatic.

Like everyone else, I don't have a clue if these Yanks are the real deal or just another bunch of shysters following the other two outgoing (🙏🙏🙏) shysters. All I know is, if they can resuscitate this fetid, sleeping giant from its induced coma, then I will go happily to my grave/oven.

Only real, hard-nosed, tough bastards with some financial know-how can save us. No amount of Shakespearean rallying speeches harking back to a glorious past will get us out of this morass. Unbridled optimism can get you only so far.

Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea etc... didn't find success looking backwards, they were ruthless and pushed everyone out of the way. Until we drop all the sentimental bullshit which envelopes all of us, we will never progress.

32 Posted 16/10/2023 at 13:05:50
I think we get bogged down in this debate of whether we are a big club or not, what is true, is that out of all of the major clubs without proper funding, business savvy and applicable sponsorship in place, Everton Football Club has the greatest potential to join up with the bigger beasts in the league.

Unfortunately, nobody has managed to unlock that potential, we might have been on the right track in the mid 80s but events outside of the club's control put the club into a holding pattern followed by a tailspin and possibly a full-on crash awaits.

When a club, who had known how to win stuff, but has had no discernible success to speak of for nearly 40 years, and also has the most annoying and a very successful club on its doorstep, but manages to retain a larger than average following, it must have something going for it.

Just because we're not recognised by all and sundry doesn't mean we don't exist and it certainly doesn't mean that if somebody with the know how and the money can't rebuild the club to something more acceptable than mere survival. If we don't think there is a brighter future awaiting our club, why should we expect financial backers to think differently?

We had a frugal careful owner for a number of years and he has been pilloried for not spending money. Then we got an owner who spent like there was unlimited funds and put is into P&S problems.

Robert Tressell
35 Posted 16/10/2023 at 20:32:58
A few home truths, possibly (some good, some bad):

- If we keep going under Moshiri, one or both of relegation and insolvency are inevitable. We're talking Glasgow Rangers type stuff here. Fortunately, we have an outfit willing to take us off his hands before that happens. For those who don't want 777, tough. The deal is done. If it doesn't get ratified there's a decent chance the club will fold altogether.

- Whether we're a big club or not, it's not like we have a queue of wealthy suitors. If it's not 777, it's going to be someone like 777. In the Premier League era, Blackburn, Chelsea, City and now Newcastle have all hit the jackpot. We've missed the boat.

- There's already 7 or 8 extremely well resourced clubs in the Premier League, two or three of which are staggeringly rich. It's harder than ever to buy success from a weak position. Someone could spend more than £500m on our squad and it would still seriously struggle to get in the top 4. It would cost about £300m just to catch up with Villa. It's more likely that a vanity project would choose a clubs in, say, Serie A or La Liga than Everton. And Saudi Arabia's league has skewed things too. Reinforces the fact that we've missed the boat.

- Mid-table mediocrity is better than relegation and insolvency. But it needn't be the peak of our ambitions. And I don't believe it's the peak of 777's ambitions either - since the better we do, the richer they get.

- I get the impression that many feel a player development strategy is beneath us but that's precisely how Leicester and the RS won the league. It's also how Arsenal have dragged themselves back in contention and how Brighton have gone from fourth tier to competing for fourth place. And even super-rich City and Chelsea are playing this game with huge investment in their academies and scouting in low cost markets (not all exotic far flung markets either).

- Whilst we won't compete in the short term under 777, we could assemble a very good squad in about 2 to 3 seasons. By that, I mean a squad as good as we had under Moyes and Martinez - capable of reaching cup finals and enjoying European adventures (only one or two of our current squad would get in those first XIs, we've sunk so far).

- From there, we are a big enough club (with a fabulous stadium) to stay at the good end of mediocre and then have the odd super season where we have assembled a good enough squad to get Champions League qualification and even Europa League or FA Cup trophies. A bit like, say, Bayer Leverkusen in Germany who build up a great side (as they are doing now) but then have to sell and take a few years before they can go again. Let's be honest, that would be dreamland from where we are now (and have been for 35 years).

- Although the RS look unassailable to us now, they are not one of the really big boys financially and have ups and downs ahead. They are like a Dortmund - where they'll be more consistently competitive that us / Leverkusen, but will struggle to maintain a really strong side when others have bigger resources. They're in a rebuilding phase now having lost Mane, Firminho, Fabinho and Henderson - and with Van Dijk on the wane and Salah possibly in his last season. They have bought some good players but they too are going to have to be patient. Unless you can simply outspend everyone by a decent margin, you need to be patient enough to build up a side over, say, a 3 to 5 year period.

- Man Utd are a good example of a club that has considered itself too big to get into the player development game. They've made it easy for clubs like Arsenal and the RS to overtake them while they tried to impatiently spend their way back to success. There's no short cut for Man Utd; there's definitely no short cut for us.
