So even if Usmanov bought us he wouldn't bankroll any transfers then?

Paying the stadium would be an easy way to circumvent the FFP rules. Much easier than handing dough straight up. So this would be a huge opportunity missed.

 ??? Again, why pay 400m of your own money if someone else will do it for you? Nothing to do with FFP

Normally doesn't Usmanov wait a couple of days and then puts out there's no truth in this rumour. Usually just the annual kick up the arse for the Arsenal board.

It's amazing how this only comes about when a transfer window is open..... it's like he's trying to get the board to spend some money, or move over and let him do it.....

 ???

Two points - your arguement is backwards, he should spend 500m (say 400 stadium and 100 for players to avoid FFP)? Surely spending the 100 is easier for FFP

Secondly, again, why should he plough 500m of his own money in, when he can get others to fund 400m of it?

He's a business man, like most owners these days, not a fan, so he's not going to give away money where he doesn't need to

For anyone needing a finance and football expert to explain the whole thing to them in a super informative and interesting way there's a guy on Twitter called The Esk who has the inside track

I'm fairly sure he has detailed information from behind the scenes. He knew stuff about the Richarlison and now Bernard deals literally just hours after it became public knowledge

 :headbang: just no, stop it

He knows no more than anyone on here, he may have researched and spent loads of time looking at football finance, but when it comes to knowledge of what's actually going on at Everton he spouts more random guesses than most journalists. If you spout enough shit, you'll get something right eventually leading to the gullible to assume you actually know what you're talking about

The rules are that the sponsorship has to be in line with the market.

So if we had a deal that was 100 times more than anyone else, it would look dodgy.

If itís in line with other deals (which for us is a big increase) then it would be fine.

A Danny Murphy led PL panel would decide that the deal is far too large and inappropriate for little Everton and so veto it  ::)

He could probably think of a million more meaningful things that he could do with his money to create a lasting legacy, the creation of a humanitarian foundation to alleviate human suffering or advancement of human rights would be a far greater gesture than putting up a load of concrete in a city with which he has no relationship whatsoever, in the meantime heís only 64 and will probably still be commercially active for at least onather ten years or so, plenty of time to lose his fortune.

Do most billionaires do anything meaningful with their fortunes though? The odd one or two at most

I don't think he could buy another European club, obviously if both teams met in Europa or Champs League it'd be massive conflict of interest

Rules are meant to be bought out though, just ask Red Bull

So Usmanovs direct words or Jim 'not bitter Farhad doesn't call him to blab the inner workings of Everton every day' Whites "realiable source"
