" News has reached us of a potential take over taking shape, for more details listen to this weeks podcast "Sounds like a " please listen to our podcast " plea to me.
I listened to it, it says property developer George Downing is rumoured to be trying to get a consortium together. According to the ever reliable wikipedia he is worth £500million. He was also the guy who was chucked out of the posh box at the City Of Manchester Stadium last season for taking the piss out of Garry Cook and Co cos we were winning 2-0.He is the sort of 'local-guy-made-good' I would love to see take-over but given it is season ticket renewal time I'm not holding my breath. If it's too good to be true it usually is.
So I figured I'd try and get in touch with George, who is surprisingly easy to get hold of - well, his PR company are at least, and they were happy to talk to meHe hasn't spoken to them about it, but they will get hold of him at some point today and try and find out what the basis is for the storyWhen I told them they laughed and said it was news to them, said that "these stories come up every couple of years because George has investments in Liverpool and is obviously an Everton fan, but they usually have no substance"Like I said, they're going to speak to him and find out what the story is, and then get back to me
Official comment alert!!!"No truth in that rumour whatsoever"
I am watching the space.
I wish there was truth in it. I wish some sentimental billionaire would buy Everton and just spend, spend, spend...I know our stadium needs rebuilding or we have to move but we're still a great club and that should never be forgotten.Come on you Blues...
