Paul The Esk

It's vital that whoever succeeds Farhad Moshiri is right for the future prosperity of our Club and our city of Liverpool

Everton – a five-step recovery plan that has to start now

Paul The Esk

There can be no more delay – no more of the complete unprofessionalism that has driven the club to the edge of a competitive and financial cliff

Moshiri – Kicking the can down the road again

Paul The Esk

The protracted potential sale of the Club (to the most unsuitable partners) exemplifies this most baffling of characteristics of Everton’s owner.

The Road to Recovery

Paul The Esk

What needs to be done so that, when we enter our 150th year in four years' time, we are in a much better place than we are now?

As Moshiri faces reality, what happens next for Everton?

Paul The Esk

There is no simple solution here. Sadly the idea that Everton can escape their current woes without administration is wishful thinking.

The latest re Everton, 777 Partners and Moshiri. What needs to be done immediately following Leadenhall accusations

Paul The Esk

There can be no more advocating for Moshiri, nor any advocating for his choice of 777 Partners. All of us, from match going fans, more distant Blues, through to nationally recognised politicians have to step in and ensure our rescue.

“Not the job that was pitched to me”

Paul The Esk

The timing of such cannot wait. Yes, we have assured Premier League survival — how fantastic that is — but bigger battles are still to be fought and won

In the Cold Light of Day – Everton’s Position, the Absence of Leadership & Aligned Interests

Paul The Esk

Everton's position is desperate but still recoverable. It is a really tough ask but the only survival chance going forwards requires new management, new players (in every sense) on and off the pitch

It almost doesn’t require saying but the financial condition of Everton Football Club is frankly absurd, and testament to the atrocious management of the club by Farhad Moshiri.

Paul The Esk

The club continues to be caught in a perfect storm of underperformance on and off the pitch, combined with the complete indifference of the current owner.

Moshiri is about to lose control of Everton – the question is to whom?

Paul The Esk

We are reaching the critical point in the Club's ownership saga. Within weeks, the current owner may lose overall control to MSP Sports Capital and administration remains a possibility if 777 Partners' takeover isn't approved

The reality of the “conditional minded to approve” requirements

Paul The Esk

Far from being a conditional approval, these are terms  that, in my opinion are impossible to meet.

Everton, the Senior Club in the City, and the Importance of Ownership
