777 Partners ‘frustrated’ over Everton proposed takeover

Everton received a huge boost earlier this week after they got back four points following a successful appeal against an unprecedented ten-point deduction.

The Toffees have now jumped to 15th in the Premier League table as a result. While they are about to face another round of hearing, the Toffees now have a clarity and they are confident of avoiding relegation this season.

However, other issues need immediate attention. The proposed takeover of Everton is taking ages when it should have been done and dusted by now, and this is becoming a cause for major frustration.

There’s already an agreement in place between the league and the Miami-based group, who have been waiting for approval since last September to purchase Farhad Moshiri’s 94 percent stake in Everton. It has been reported that the Premier League will hold face-to-face talks with 777 Partners as part of the final decision-making process.

According to a fresh report from The Times, Josh Wander, the co-founder of the American investment firm 777, is “frustrated” about the time the Premier League is taking to come to a decision.

It has been suggested that part of the delay is because of the league’s involvement in Everton’s Profitability and Sustainability Rule breaches. But they have every reason to be frustrated about.

Everton need to focus on winning games

These are issues that are beyond Everton’s control at the moment, and while it is really frustrating, the club can do nothing but wait for the Premier League to reach out.

The Toffees are yet to win a game in 2024 and Sean Dyche’s side need to win games. What has been really frustrating is that they have failed to win at Goodison Park in recent weeks, and that needs to change when they face West Ham on Saturday.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is yet to score since October and Dyche needs to make a bold decision on him.
