There are two dead certs during the British summer, first there is rain and the second is Evertonians moaning about Kenwright and his lack of funds available for transfers.
Being a red myself I should feel obliged to give the blues a good kicking. But I have many friends that are blues and I personally hold the club in high regard. I respect their history and think that their manager, David Moyes is the best British manager after Sir Alex and now that the king is back Daglish.
Despite his flaws it can not be doubted that Kenwright is an avid blue and his love and passion for his club is strong. He runs his club stringently and with Moyes has built the strongest starting eleven that the blues have seen in decades. Yes Moyes has bought a few flops but who hasn’t? But he has bought far more hits than duds. When Everton do sell their players then they always make big profits, Johnson, Lescott and not forgetting Mr Rooney brought in much needed funds that Kenwright invested wisely.
In an interview with SKY Kenwright blamed the banks for not allowing him to take out the loans that would be needed to bring in the players the fans want. He said the wider economic problems the world is facing make the banks unwilling to lend the money as freely as they once did.
I have heard Evertonians point out that why can clubs like Blackburn, Portsmouth and QPR attract buyers and Everton can not. I think the answer is would you want Everton to be like Blackburn Portsmouth and QPR? All owned by multimillionaires yes, but neither of them are big spenders and owners don’t love the club and the their futures are far from secure. Portsmouth and Leed’s fans paid the price for ‘living the dream,’ paying for success. I’m sure most would swap places with Everton.
