I don't like the man. The Panorama programme solidified this impression even if the material isn't completely proven. Also listening to Everton Business Matters fawn over him really annoys me, which is a shame as its a good podcast.

The main reason I dislike him apart from him basically using sales to cover spending on players,  is I firmly believe the ground move to the city centre has sod all to do with benefitting the club/fans and more to do with making HIM more money. Walton will suffer, the atmosphere will suffer, fans will suffer and possibly even the team may suffer. However the club will be more profitable for Mr Moshiri.

Jack Walker was no angel, but he died recently and some of our fans are so wide-eyed on Moshiri you almost wonder whether they have been led to believe the club for him is a labour of love. It isn't. It was for Bill Kenwright and he wasn't any good either. Moshiri is a capitalist out for his own pocket and seeking to commercialize our club into 'Brand Everton' and take it away from our origins. Fans are falling for that way too easily in my opinion. If he didn't have money I would see no difference between him and the Hull/Cardiff chairman who had no prior connection/commitment to their clubs either.
If he is putting his money into a project why shouldn't he be allowed to make a profit? If he isn't then one has to accept that we are not asking for 'investment' we are looking for charity.
We have to live in the real financial world if the club want to compete. I don't see much cash coming from the fans, not even the idea of putting up prices to the level of the 'top' clubs to help us compete.
The fact is we want to keep our heritage, we want to keep it all close, we want it affordable, we want to win trophies and we want someone else to pay for it. I can live with that if it works but I don't think I'll hold my breath.

WE'VE spent none of HIS MONEY on transfers.
I know I've taken that a little out of context but it's a beautiful example of how fans of all clubs think and their expectations.☺

The truth is none of us know what goes on behind the scenes, I doubt any of us have run a multi million pound business or looked to build a new stadium. I further doubt that many have knowledge of the professional game beyond watching our team, watching TV pundits and reading the press.
What we have are opinions based on ignorance and guesswork, the ability to twist someone else's money into being 'ours' and great imaginations.
Forums are great places to mentally 'step back' and watch a slightly surreal world float past. Long may they flourish! 😊

I think it's possible to extrapolate that things aren't being run well behind the scenes based upon the available evidence we do have a) transfers, b) poor communications (using Jim White as a mouthpiece), (c) sacking a manger with no alternative in mind etc etc.
You can draw that conclusion I agree, but how it gets to this point, who did what, who didn't do what, who pressured who etc is what we don't know and without that all we can say with certainty is that, at the moment, things are wrong.
Everything else we express an opinion on is total guesswork including how the club sorts it.
