Amazing news really. I was sad about the lack of football today but this is clearly a huge deal in terms of the future of Everton Football Club.

Who knows how it pan out, what type of investor he'll turn out to be...but it gives us some hope of competing as our current model was not sustainable long term.

Look forward to learning more.

I'm happy to have him on board.

Hopefully, he can bump that 49.9% stake up to a majority in the near future.

The open letter Moshiri wrote with Usmanov to the Arsenal board is worth referring back to, to get a measure of what we might expect:

So what is Red & White's vision for the Club? It is simple. A debt free Club, with a big enough war chest to buy top talent players who can hit the ground running and who can complement the Club's long tradition of developing young players and homegrown talent. Together they can help the Club win the most prestigious trophies - because it is the trophies which are the crowning achievement for everybody at the Club. The trophies are also key to the commercial success of the Club - they increase the value of the players, the value of the brand, attract the best sponsors and maximize the value of our commercial contracts which should in turn mean that the Club does not have to squeeze any more income from hard pressed fans. We also believe in the transparency that a stock market listing brings so are committed to the Club remaining listed on the stock exchange and to greater fan involvement both through share ownership and also Board representation for the fans.

He'll still be the majority shareholder, so it's still a takeover.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
