This article in The New European, written by an Everton fan, provides another summary of Everton's precarious position in the Premier League with 777 Partners trying to push through their takeover. It concludes:

"The last two seasons have shown two things about Evertonians; that their passionate support can be enough to drag a broken and dispirited team over the line to survival, and that they aren’t shy of a chaotic protest or two. But there’s only so much fight a support that has endured so much can muster. Being forced to witness their club being turned into a joke has simply drained the fight from them.

"Stuck between the rock of Moshiri’s calamitous ownership and the hard place of a firm with a questionable reputation, all a significant chunk of the fanbase feel they can do now is sit back and hope for the least damaging outcome.

"After years of yearning for a benevolent billionaire owner, we got one who has brought the club to its knees. Our prayers for a further change have been answered by a bloke in a suit and baseball cap, who is facing a host of allegations. Everton, that."

Written well-enough, but just a simple re-hash of our last few years' tribulations. Nothing new in the article for Evertonians, certainly not TWers.

No paywall, though. So, there's that.

‘Everton, that’. What a tiresome comment that has become.

They are now talking about an Indian Group taking Everton over...

Do you think we could Curry-er the details to them? Or would we have NAAN of that!

Gerry, I think that news will make Moshiri Bangladesh for a better offer. Sari about that, it’s early out here.

The more interest the merrier. I’m praying that someone comes in who doesn’t need to buy us with high interest loans, the repayment of which will leave us permanently skint year after year.

I want us to be well run and have some finances left to be able to invest in quality for the squad.

Tony #7,

If Everton get through the independent commission relatively unscathed, there could be the other interested parties.
