Yes, a lot of it is to do with being in the Prem, but a massive accountancy firm has valued us as being worth between $428-482m, above plenty of other clubs around the globe, considered to be massive. I would imagine part of that is also down to Moshiri's investment and presumable future ownership of the club. We're considered the 7th most valuable club in the Prem.
I just thought it was an interesting thing to think about, in terms of the way we're perceived, and to some extent the way we perceive ourselves. People talk about us as 'only Everton' or 'little old Everton' or whatever, but we're actually a massive business in a very big industry, and there's huge potential for that to grow if we're able to sort the ground thing out in the new few years, buy better players and move higher up the league again.
Not that I'm saying we should sell our souls (and I don't think we will). I just think we might be in for a period of rapid modernisation over the next few years. Hopefully we can take some of the best things from that modernisation (greater professionalism at all levels of the club, greater accountability at all levels, more scientific approach to appointments and recruitment etc).
