I'm just disheartened with football in general. Praying we'll get bought out by someone who'll buy us success isn't what football should be about.
Unfortunately, it's what football has become though. And unlike in the past, the tales of the underdog club that has little money but is run well and managed great succeeding against all the odds are no longer being told. Even the Stokes of this world are spending a fortune to get beat in Cup Finals and enjoy European runs.
I'll take getting bought out and at least becoming competitive again. Money to get us into Europe again, to enjoy some great trips to far flung places and some great nights at Goodison again.
And the Everton of the 1960s, the Mersey Millionaires, was built on buying the best players. A little stroll around the Goodison timeline at the ground (along Gwladys Street), between the years of 1960 to mid-1970s, shows you how many times the club broke the British transfer fee paid record. The notion that 'becoming like Man City' would somehow destroy our heritage is basically not really knowing what our heritage actually is. Everton is all about the best - our motto, nothing but the best is good enough - that involves spending money to buy the best players. Something we haven't lived up to since 1988 when we last broke the British transfer record in buying Tony Cottee.
