More reports of Usmanov in Megafon advertising at Goodison, could this be another sign he will be stepping up his investments with us, happy days.

Lots of Signs. All around Goodison. Do you think he is paying over the odds?

The Megafon advertising is part of an existing deal and does not involve any more sponsorship funding being put into the club.

All seems a bit strange to me. Usmanov has a few links to EFC now with sponsorships and naming rights. He’s a businessman and he’s not going to give money to EFC or his friend as owner unless he is getting something in return other than getting his brand advertised.

At the same time there is no point in him joining Moshiri in ownership of the club as this wouldn’t make a difference to FFP as are overheads are more than our income.
I understand the club is trying to offload surplus players and reduce the wages. But really if we could wave a magic wand and move on Stekelenburg, one of our RB (Kenny, Coleman or Sidibe) , Martina and Niasse.

Maybe others ie Schneiderlin, Sigurdson and Walcott too. Would this get us back within the threshold of FFP? Not forgetting even if all these could move on. Our club has ambition to bring in new quality players who will cost a premium which will then put us back to square 1. So what is the answer apart from selling our best players like we have done in the past. Doesn’t seem fair financially to us supporters.

Ed02, I know this may be a massive over simplification but do you have an idea of a ball park figure of the amount of wages that need to be cut to get us back in line with FFP?

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that Chris. In simple terms, Everton has to maintain losses over a rolling three year period for the Premier League to less than £105M - excluded are youth development and infrastructure costs. Over the past three years the gross loss/profit and loss are +£10M, -£35M and for last season -£112M. For this season Everton must make a significant profit - they won't because 85% of income is spent on wages, then they have spent significantly on players, running the club and are building debt with the club mortgaged against a third party. They are sort of screwed big time and the business simply cannot be sustained as it is.}

Very worrying to read.

Hi ed, would it be possible for Everton to liquidate and form a new club similar to Rangers, or is it a case that we are going to be liquidated and they will not allow us to come back. such a shame that mismanagement is going to close our club, just as we were turning the season around, I hope they allow us to recreate a version of us in the lower leagues.

{Ed002's Note - Don’t worry, nothing like that is going to happen}

Thanks for clearing that up ed, I just hope we can sort ourselves out before it gets too serious, would be a huge blow to get into Europe and then banned/ fined. As you say, the business seems unsustainable and I was just fearing the worst. Hopefully we cam reduce the numbers of the squad, thanks again ed.
