Everton – ski? Russian Fat-Cat to buy ‘The People’s Club’

A slow but steady rumour cloud is forming over Goodison Park with a gaggle of sources claiming that there are some ‘high level’ takeover talks going on and that after years of bumbling around, theatre luvvy Bill Kenwright has finally managed to snare a rich football lover interested in buying the Toffee’s. The sources are varied but mostly unreliable, but there are a few solid areas where this rumour has bubbled to the surface; the rumour was given life earlier this month on an Everton journo’s blog but mentioned recently on Merseyside radio station City Talk and has been latched onto by a swathe of fan sites, with speculation that the Russian in question is Mikhail Khodorkovsky. If these rumours are true are Evertonian’s going to accept a loaded Russian or will they be loath to shed their ‘plucky paupers’ image?
