Are Derby County Really A Better Prospect Than Everton?

Zounds! What in the name of all things sacred is going on at Pride Park? Derby County are literally turning the Mickey Mouse joke into a reality…

Not only are Derby doing a fine job of clocking up the most sorry league season ever witness in the Premier League but according to the Daily Mail, Derby County are in talks with Disney over a possible takeover, enabling the superb journos at the Mail to uncork the classic line: “Derby really will become the “Mickey Mouse” side in the Premier League”

Apparently a consortium led by Roy Disney (Walt’s nephew) is planning to gobble up Derby County. And any Evertonians weeping with laughter should stop right now, at least Derby have potential suitors, whilst Everton sit there in the shop window like an unwanted flea-bitten pup, with Bill Kenwright frantically looking for investment. It looks like somehow Derby County represent a better investment than Everton, can this really be true? And if so, doesn’t it show what a dire state Everton’s finances are in.
