Everton ownership could change hands as Peter Kenyon heads a consortium looking to buy Everton

Farhad Moshiri bought Everton in 2016. New ownership brought renewed optimism that the backing from Moshiri would enable the Toffees to reach greater heights and get back to the top of English football. However, for six years, Everton have been in a dysfunctional crisis and now a consortium led by Peter Kenyon is in talks to take over Everton.

When Moshiri took over Everton, the fans expected him to back the manager and provide funds that would allow the Toffees to attract top footballers to Goodison Park. Moshiri stuck by his word and in six years, bankrolled transfers that amounted to over £500 million.

Stuck in a vicious cycle of instability and managerial upheaval, Everton failed to achieve their primary goal of bridging the gap to the top six. Year after year, Moshiri’s deep pockets financed the club and fulfilled wishes of managers that demanded certain players.

The managerial merry go around is a different problem all together for Everton but as a result of having six managers since 2016 meant that a mish-mash squad had been formed and players who did not work in a particular system piled on.

Chickens came home to roost as bad management policies finally caught up and Everton were almost on the verge of relegation. Had it not been for a valiant effort spirited by Frank Lampard and vociferous supporters driving the team, the club would’ve fallen into the dungeons of relegation.
