To be honest I'm not surprised they haven't won a trophy for over 50 years (Championship and getting PL promotion aside) obviously they will see this as a chance to win stuff, I guess it becomes easy to put any doubts aside

Marco Silva - Fulham - Ok two exceptions
Ancelotti - Real Madrid

How 4 out of 6 of them went on to get top jobs after fairly poor records at Everton is rather mind boggling.
In fairness....

Moyes was found out very quickly and punted from Man U

Martinez has wasted the so called 'Golden Generation' They should have won at least one major tournament.

Koeman got the Dutch job and Barca job almost by default. He was 14th?! choice for Barca? He'll be out on his ear soon there

The real puzzler is Ancelotti. Why he ever agreed to go there in the first place is one of the games great mysteries.

i'd say it will be like when Roman took over chelsea at first - anyone decent that will come there, then sign them up. We'll sort out the tactics later. It will be a case of signing as many high profilers as possible to build the profile further.

They will give Mbappe a blank cheque. Same with Haaland. Any suitable player out of contract or available will be told name their price. It wouldn't surprise me to see Pogba end up there!!!

It will be like PSG on steroids!!!

Absolutely zero chat about any moral issues with this takeover.

I mean, as supporters we 'might' be excited if the same were to happen to us (though for me personally I am not so sure).

But you would at least expect some journalistic interrogation of what this means. Not a word of it.

It's so hard to turn off an emotional connection like we all have with Liverpool, but I really wish I could. As I get older, and elite level football becomes more corrupted and soulless, I've definitely felt myself drifting back towards lower league/non league - been going to National League and even North West Counties league games. I hardly ever watch non-LFC Premier League games any more, and the games I do have on are usually just background noise while I look at my phone, only looking up to see the goals.

With LFC it's just as intense as ever, but this latest development feels like another nail in the coffin.

This tweet sums it up nicely imo

the midseason World Cup in Qatar, moving it to every two years, the new Champions League format, and all the other host of issues. Then the ownership and cost. I think i'll jib it off after Klopp and watch from the sidelines. It will come to a head in 3-4 years time. It always felt evitable since Qatar 'won' the bid 10 years ago.

It's how it will start yes, players looking for one big pay day. But if those players can take them to the CL, then others will join for the football (and the money). They will follow a similar path to City...still, looking forward to City and Newcastle being done for corruption/bribery at some point, as the battle between the 2 'not state owned' clubs becomes bigger than the game itself.

I'm sure we'll hear a lot from G. Neville on this deal; he's said a lot of things about the probity of the Glazers and FSG particularly in light of the failed ESL attempt, yet I'm not aware of any instance where these people have had somebody chopped up, so doubtless Mr. Neville will use his platform on Sky TV to directly address the suitability of the Saudis, without diluting any points with general "everything is fucked up" bollocks.

Coutinho and Van Beek I reckon will be nailed on for January. Think we could rinse them £30million each for Big Nat & Origi.

Yeah Origi is an obvious one. They have to build it up gradually like City did. I think they'll come in for Divvy, and yeah Coutinho seems obvious too.

I imagine they will get a load of wasters chasing money to start with, suppose it depends on the managers.......But how many Robinho's and shite did City overspend on, definitely took them a few seasons to start to get the balance right

Aye, often picking up cast offs from big clubs - they bought SWP, Ben Haim, Bridge and a few others in the first round of spending.

Depressingly they will probably grease enough palms to make sure they're never investigated Hadd enough, and same as City will have better and more powerful lawyers

apparently, due to ashley being a tight cunt, Newcastle can still spend £188 mill this season & still be FFP friendly !!!!

I think they will go big in January & also sign few top line free transfers too; how they integrate them is another matter, but they will go deep & early

I think Aguero was the catalyst for them. He was the true world beater that propelled them

Kompany came early didn't he, £6m or something, and was probably the best buy but as I remember it at least he had to play with some shite before the likes of Aguero and David Silva arrived.

We can all debate about the rights and wrongs of the owners but from a purely blinkered football perspective it is another huge hitter coming into a cramped EPL. Our model will have 3/4 teams that we just can’t complete with financially now and relying and finding another Klopp and Edwards combo coming along feels a bit worrying. I don’t want us to give up our identity but I can see why the Geordies are all in - 50 years is a long time waiting

The problem is that the entire thing is becoming totally futile. It’s a dick waving competition amongst Oligarchs. As mentioned above I’ll keep watching us and only us and whatever happens it’s the team and club that matters. If we can compete great, if not, well we join the rank and file.

Regardless of their subsequent records the fact that most of them went on to get what would be considered top jobs after what in almost all cases was mediocre at best spells in charge of Everton is quite remarkable. Obviously you can make the case that Ancelotti got the Real Madrid job because of his record elsewhere, maybe to a lesser extent Koeman. But if these guys were such good managers that they managed to get top jobs why did they not show it at Everton? Are Everton just beyond hope?
