The issues with prospective new Everton owners 777 Partners keep piling up as the British Basketball League has now questioned their ability to financially support the organisation they co-own.
According to reports ciculating today, the basketball league, which the US investment group has bought into, are concerned monies owed them by the Group are not being paid and the Premier League are said to be looking into it.
Ever since they came back into the picture and then agreed to buy Everton from Farhad Moshiri, 777 Partners have been under the microscope.
There have been queries about their finances (especially whether they can fund a full takeover) the background and past behaviour of key individuals and the apparent lack of ambition they have shown in other football club acquisitions.
Furthermore, Premier League clubs have raised their own concerns, although that can be largely dismissed as some of their owership could also be questioned and anyway they cannot themselves block a takeover of a fellow club.
All this though does make things even more murky and uncertain and will add further to the feelings of serious doubt Everton supporters have about the viability and sustainability of this deal.
I want to see Moshiri and his board gone and in some ways anything must be better than the chaos, confusion and incompetence we have endured for far too long under his ownership.
This has seen the Toffees become a laughing stock and a byword for football failure, struggling desperately on the pitch and with huge debts off it.
But, that doesn’t mean that any old new owners will do.
We need to know that whoever takes over this once great club has the right football strategy, sound finances and the ambition to take the club forward.
Are 777 Partners those owners?
I don’t know. Looking at all these issues the answer would seem to be maybe not, but then who else is there to turn to?
One thing is certain and that is that unless Sean Dyche can improve his player’s performances and start picking up more points – beginning this evening at Brentford – then whoever is in control of the club will be taking on a Championship-bound team.
