I'll second all of what you lads are saying here this story really warms the heart and our club will be there for George not just now but forever because it's what we do I also think Gerri has a friend for life (by the way well done Gerri for getting the ball rolling with all this) we have one or two faults at Everton but when it come to things like this were second to none pure class Everton fc once again it's things like this that makes us stand out from the rest well done George well done Everton lovely kid lovely manners always smiling keep it up mate

how can people stoop so low as to drag the kid down is beyond me

We should t dwell on it though these parasites aren't worth it and by the looks of it humanity has prevailed and George is the winner.

Clubbed typical blues that mate making your little one feel so welcome I take my 13 yr old daughter every week mate since she was four and the amount of time people stopped to let us through or were conscious of her walking the steps it really is like one big family living room and it's why we get hooked as youngsters

One memory that sticks out was moyes last season we were one down in stoppage time me and our baby left the ground and when we got to the end of the main stand we heard the raw go up we turned and run back to the ground as we got back into the street end jelevic got the winner we went mad are baby fell down about 20 steps with a smile on her face and I promise you people were tripping over themselves to help her up I've met strangers who are now great friends in that place mate.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff liam...thanks for sharing..

Hi Ed I would love Bill to stay on after the proposed takeover I am behind Bill 110% he has been a fantastic chairman for our Great Club I have been a fan since the early sixties and these are truly exciting times he really deserves some form of Honour, GuernseyBlue.

{Ed025's Note - im all for that GB, i have never understood the crap he gets and like you a massive fan, i have said that a life presidency would be my preferred honour to bestow on him, or maybe a plane with a banner saying.."sorry bill we were dick heads" would be more appropriate..

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Feb 2016 10:33:34
Hi Ed totally agree with you there are some funny people in this world, cheers GuernseyBlue.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 10:48:38
Haha, I'd love to see that banner. Not a hope in hell it will happen though.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 10:49:35
Totally agree. People need to realise how lucky we have been to have him. When you look at other clubs.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 13:12:00
you never knoe ed, the banner might materialise. There was one in support of Bill flown above the stadium earlier this season, could have been the Leicester game. He deserves recognition imo, I'd go along with your idea of life presidency.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 07:54:42
does anyone know what date we will be announcing season ticket prices for next season?

This time last year they had already been announced with renewal starting end of February.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 13:14:35
I suppose they are waiting to see what becomes of the take over talks Ant before releasing the info. Shouldn't be too long now.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 01:18:05
So a lot of the papers running with the story that rm wants kenright to still be involved even if the take over goes through. Strange thing to say unless it's almost a done deal. The unknown is killing me. just hope they do us proud.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 23:39:31
Martinez speaking about bill being kept on as chairman and speaks of the long term future with bill at the club reading into it it's quite positive on his health hopefully.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe he could be made some kind of honorary chairman, a voice for the club's traditions amongst all the high flyers - health permitting of course. I don't think anyone would grudge him that.}

Take Rooney back?
That would be like taking your ex Mrs back after she walked out of your life for another fella.
No thanks now please move on.

I think you lot will have more chance taking 'Charmed' back, lol.

Poor kid :-)

11 Feb 2016 19:55:32
Nice one Dags.
Charmed made some fair points, but the thing about this site is that if you put your head above the parapet with an opinion you can expect to be challenged. If you then try then to have the last word it's poor judgement.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 20:02:16
Absolutely Ted,
Compared to other sites, I always find you boys fair.
All good banter as they say.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 20:05:07
HAHA dags a think what Ted is saying is it's like arguing with ya bird

On a serious note though teds right all the kid done was make a fair comment and all the street came out I thought brookside was back when I came on here yesterday haha.

{Ed025's Note - love it liam..

Spot on that Liam. My missus and her sisters were all born with the last word gene. At least she makes sure number one grandson is growing up with plenty of Everton gear to make sure is head isn't turned, especially as he lives a few miles from the Emirates.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 21:38:53
That's the one tester lad it would be child cruelty to bring him up any other way mate that's another toffee to the collection then and I think all women are born with that gene mate think there wired wrong haha.

Firstly, let me say I hope we get new owners and that they bring success on and off the pitch to our club. I am a bit worried about how much expectation there is in terms of what these new owners might actually do if they buy Everton. Without wanting to burst the bubble of optimism, I drew up a list of clubs that were taken over by rich 'investors' since around 2000. I might have forgotten some but there are enough here to cause us to be a little more circumspect before getting the bunting out. The likelihood of investors building EFC a new stadium and also investing in the team is, on this evidence, pretty near zero. Most of the new owners who invested in the team took on clubs who had newish stadia already. Even some of those are now in a worse state than pre-takeover. Some of the info is hard to be definite about but by 'improvement' I mean is the club regularly finishing higher up the league; by 'success' I mean have they actually won anything more than they did before the takeover. Therefore, Manure can be counted as a failure even though they won the champions league since the Glazers took over because they are now clearly worse than they were before 2007. The only unequivocal successes on both counts (stadium and team) are Swansea, Watford and Tottenham (I'm not counting West Ham because them getting the Olympic stadium is too unjust to be credited) . Optimism by all means guys - let's just not expect the impossible and then moan when our expectations aren't met.

Arsenal, Kroenke/ Usmanov (16.7 billion) - stadium: already built; team: undecided
Aston Villa, Lerner (800 million) - stadium: failure; team: short-term improvement, long-term failure
Birmingham, Yeung (150 million? ) - stadium: already built; team: failure
Blackburn, Rao family (1 billion? ) - stadium: already updated in 90s; team: failure
Bolton, Davies (50 million) - stadium: already built; team: short-term improvement, long-term failure
Bournemouth, Demin (100 million) - stadium: already built but still needs development for prem; team: improvement
Cardiff, Tan (800 million) - stadium: already built; team: failure
Chelsea, Abramovich (9 billion) - stadium: in planning; team: success
Crystal Palace, Harris, Blitzer, Parish, Hosking et al (4 billion) - stadium: failure; team: improvement
Fulham, al-Fayed then Khan (al-Fayed 1.6 billion; Khan 4 billion) - stadium: failure; team: failure
Hull, Allam (320 million) - stadium: already built; team: failure
Leeds, Bates then Cellino (Cellino 800 million) - stadium: failure; team: failure
Leicester, Srivaddhanaprabha (2 billion) - stadium: already built; team: having a great season
Liverpool, Hicks and Gillett - stadium: failure; team: failure
Liverpool, Henry/ Werner (1.5 billion) - stadium: in planning; team: variable
Man City, Mansour (20 billion) - stadium: already built; team: success
Man Utd, Glazers (4 billion) - stadium: already built; team: early success, later failure
Newcastle, Ashley (4.5 billion) - stadium: failure; team: failure
Norwich, Smith/ Wynn-Jones (23 million) - stadium: failure; team: variable
QPR, Fernandes (500 million) - stadium: in planning; team: failure
Southampton, Liebherr (2 billion) - stadium: already built; team: improvement
Stoke, Coates (1.5 billion) - stadium: built 1997 in Coates first spell as owner; team: improvement
Sunderland, Short (2.4 billion) - stadium: already built; team: failure
Swansea, Jenkins et al (? ) - stadium: built by council and retail consortium; team: success
Tottenham, Lewis/ Levy (7 billion) - stadium: being built; team: improvement
Watford, Pozzo (120 million) - stadium: improving; team: improvement
West Brom, Peace (50 million) - stadium: little improvement; team: improvement
West Ham, Sullivan/ Gold (750 million) - stadium: stitch-up; team: improvement.

{Ed025's Note - great bit of info and insight there mate, i have always been an advocate of..be careful what you wish for, but i suppose if we dont go for it we will always be saying "what if"..

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 19:09:19
If the figures quoted for club takeovers is half ways right, taking into account ground status, I suspect £200m would be investment and not carry a controlling interest.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 21:13:37
So let's not sell and just carry on being moaning burgers about no investment, no big name player investment, no cups etc etc. Your like my bloody more in law, only happy when your miserable.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 21:31:49
Sorry lads - should have said the figures are the estimated worth of the buyers - combined worth where there is more than one. Lots of these guys are a bit shady about their finances obviously, but its as far as I can tell roughly how much wealth they personally have.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 22:36:31
Lets asume that the yanks bid is excepted, moors is 71 and already a very wealthy man. If it goes ahead it is reasonable to asume he wants to make his mark, not more cash, he has so much of that he could not spend it if he lived to 200, and at 71 he is going to have to move quickly to make an inpact, this surly, is what we have all been waiting for. No one can say yes 100% this will work, but it does seem the first chance we have had since another john moors, to compeat on a financial even playing field.

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me JCW..

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 06:24:46
Nobody - including me and probably not even woburn's mother-in-law - is saying let's knock back investment in the club. Investment is probably better than carrying on as we are. Of course I'd rather Everton had a chance to buy more top players and were able to upgrade GP. I'm just pointing out that nobody buys a club - and EFC is costing more than Chelsea or City did - and then throws a load more cash at a new stadium and also spends big on players. At 71, the guy isn't thinking let's make my mark by turning EFC into world-beaters (which he couldn't afford even if he wanted to) . He's thinking about his next 20 years and his kid's inheritance. That's how he's rich.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 10:53:56
A new stadium would do me. Team is doing ok and the future looks bright in that department at the moment.

A new stadium would improve the team indirectly with the extra revenue.

Some people want a new stadium AND to spend plenty on players? One step at a time. If we upgrade Goodison properly or get a new stadium I for one will be over the moon. Team is capable of doing better than they currently are.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 11:42:44
Agreed. It's the stadium issue that has probably put off buyers in the past. We have a lot of young talent coming through and a couple who we know might move on but would go for big sums that hopefully could be reinvested to maintain or even improve the squad. From a financial point of view, players offer investors the chance of quicker returns than a new stadium would and so many teams got their grounds sorted years ago. Let's hope.

anti rooney he would a great signing for us ask anybody who knows about football if he's past it.

Agree3 Disagree2

11 Feb 2016 10:18:23
just thinking how much do you think rooney is worth and do you think rom would stay if we signed rooney.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 10:58:33
Just said to me nanna to rooneys coming home

She just gave a cheeky grin and started putting her lipstick on.

{Ed025's Note - love it liam..

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 12:18:54
we haven't even saw Niasse play yet, and people talking about Rooney coming back! we should concentrate on the players we have first.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 12:28:39
Fair enough Paul imp but I'd love to see Rooney come back at some stage. Not only to play but everything else he would bring with him. Experience, knowledge and also as much as I'm not a fan of this kind of thing it would do our image and sponsorship potential good also.

Imagine Englands top scorer and legend Rooney returning to his boyhood team. Everyone would benefit in my eyes. I'm sure Rooney will move back to Liverpool whenever he retires. His kids weren't born in Liverpool for no reason.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 12:29:11
I mean his kids were born in Liverpool for a reason.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 12:43:02
Find it hard not to get wound up when I hear people wanting Rooney back why he's over rated past his best and getting worse every season. We'd have to pay him mega wages 2! Rooney turned his back on Everton a long time ago I for one will never support him again.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Feb 2016 12:57:56
Imho he'd have no problem taking a drop in wages IF he wanted to back to Everton. I'm sure he'd know that would go without saying.

It was to see him at the Everton game a while back with his son. Who supports Everton. Son doesn't support Utd he supports Everton.

As I said a lot comes with Rooney if returns. Not just his footballing skills. We could benefit financially if he returns.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 13:14:24
I agree with kingy why would or should we sign an ageing player who for the last 3 seasons has been on the decline. I don't get the sentiments behind why some fans want him back. We should be building a future not dragging up the past

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 14:13:59
Simple, along with what I said above could do a job for one or two seasons.

Wealth of experience he would bring would be of great benefit to club, team and even the manager. He went through it all. Got praise from Ibrahimovic (sorry for spelling) Can't think of many that he praised.

Rooney is going to leave Utd soon enough. If he doesn't come to Everton you can bet there is plenty of other clubs who won't turn him down. They will be queuing up for his signature. All around the globe. Not only EPL.

America, China, Asia, Australia even South America. No doubt Rooney could probably go wherever he wanted. Anywhere on the planet I would imagine.

I'd consider us lucky if he came back to Everton. My gut is telling me he will. I know there is plenty of people who won't want that for numerous reasons. I get why some don't want him back.

For me I'd welcome him back with open arms.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 14:49:10
NBTB. Totally with you on this. On the point of players on the decline before they joined us.

Andy Grey
Gareth Barry
Peter Reid
Richard Gough
Nigel Martyn
Silvan Distan

Probably missed a few too.

If the deal was right I would allow this guy a second chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 16:29:05
Good point Toffee ace those players done rightly at Everton. Putting it mildly.
