I didn't say that at all mate although that is probably the case.
I said that buyers are very rare at the moment. We would need someone on a par with the owners of City, Chelsea or QPR. When you look at the number of takeovers that have happened, those 3 stand out as the super rich owners who can probably afford to spend as much as is needed at EFC. Since the PL began, those 3 are the richest (I presume, not being privy to their finances), so it just shows that the super rich are rare even in good times. The asking price is reported to be around £150 million - I'm not sure what the total share values are but 51% of them can't add up to the asking price. So whilst I think that the asking price is way too high, I don't think the right sort of buyer is available.
The sad fact is that we are not a viable investment in that there is unlikely to ever be a return on the money that needs to be spent. so we need a super rich buyer - see above.
The best that we can hope for is that somehow enough money can be raised for DM to buy some players, get us into the CL and then get to the very late stages, so bringing in some much needed revenue and hopefully build on that.
Clubs are still being bought though. But they are priced reasonably and, most importantly, actually for sale. The Shite were a fiscal shambles when the Boston buyers grabbed them, and that was no act of charity or billionaire egotism. They will make a lot of money off the Shite, just not as directly as most fans can appreciate.
As for your last paragraph, yeah, true. It's pretty much all we've been able to hope for the better part of a decade (other than a buyer, but we all know about that "hope").
It's a hope that's fading toward delusion, though. Because the clubs that were ahead of us who were in fiscal crisis (ManU, Arse, the Shite) have steadied themselves. And we've been passed by a few clubs who were behind us (Citeh, Spurs, Newcastle--though we'll see how long that lasts and if they're not Aston Villa in a year or two). So it's not a particularly realistic business "plan." And if Moyes and our ability to spot and develop bargains goes, then God help us.
