Everton boardroom exodus on cards as Farhad Moshiri looks for more investment

Change is once again brewing in the Everton boardroom as Farhad Moshiri looks set to eventually make changes around him at Goodison Park.

The Daily Mail has reported that the positions of Bill Kenwright and Denise Barrett-Baxendale are under threat, despite any concrete move being delayed.

It is shared that Moshiri is looking to bring in new investors with a position on the board likely to be attractive to whoever comes into the club.

Due to financial and footballing difficulties though, Kenwright and Barrett-Baxendale were both under threat of being given the boot by the controversial owner.

An exodus is still on the cards though despite the delay, with the arrival of new investors only kick-starting the potential exit process for both figures.


Moshiri is once again set to put others ahead of himself when looking at the problems.

Goodison Park has turned against the board a long time ago, but most of them are mainly against Moshiri before the others around him, given he has final say on these calls.

MSP Sports Capital have been consistently linked with investment on Merseyside, but with such turmoil on and off the pitch with finances and the threat of relegation, nothing looks imminent.

Should that eventually happen though and they do get one or multiple seats on the board, changes will be expected, whether that means others must leave, who knows?

Kenwright and Barrett-Baxendale getting the boot would not phase many watching on from the outside, but Moshiri keeping his spot just does not sit right.

It is possible that the only positive outcome from this would be a complete and total Everton takeover that would see them all leave – it is about time, get it done.
