Finance Expert: Very symbolic as vote of no confidence called in Everton board

We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Everton...

Dan Plumley has insisted that the Everton Shareholders Association calling for a vote of no confidence in the board is a symbolic gesture at Goodison Park.

The Finance Guru admitted that there is “no way” it will change anything though due to the percentage of the holdings at the club, albeit a significant statement.

Things have gone from bad to worst since this though, with Sean Dyche replacing Frank Lampard and Farhad Moshiri overseeing zero January transfers.

“It’s a really symbolic gesture,” he exclusively told Goodison News.

“There’s no way it’s likely to change anything given the percentage of the holdings but it is a significant statement to come out and say ‘we don’t have confidence in the board.’

“Again, that doesn’t reflect well on the club and the wider situation and the on-pitch performance, the owner, the stadium, the managerial situation, it’s just another thing that is just a really negative story for the club.

“It won’t change anything in terms of the makeover of it, but quite a symbolic gesture from that group of shareholders to call a vote of no confidence.”

This is only going to end in total chaos.

Moshiri keeps on skating on thin ice without it completely shattering, but the failure to make a single January transfer after selling Anthony Gordon is simply mindblowing.

These kinds of failures cannot be tolerated time and time again, and hopefully, even if this is just a symbolic gesture, it can bring around the changes that everyone is calling for at Everton Football Club.
