Farhad Moshiri, Bill Kenwright and Denise Barrett-Baxendale Everton future predicted in ‘calamitous’ claim

Everton boardroom trio Farhad Moshiri, Bill Kenwright and Denise Barrett-Baxendale must take the majority of the blame if the club are relegated this season, according to BBC Sport journalist Phil McNulty.

The club’s board has not attended a home match since January due to concerns regarding their safety at Goodison Park.

Toffees fans have constantly shared their discontent at how things have been run at the club in recent years.

“If Everton do go down, a heavy weight of responsibility will bear down on owner Farhad Moshiri, chairman Bill Kenwright and chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale for the calamitous decision-making that has fractured relationships with fans and led to regular protests demanding the removal of a board that has not attended a home game since January, citing safety concerns,” McNulty wrote for BBC Sport.

“It is hard to see how those in the boardroom can remain in their positions for any length of time given the discontent and dysfunction and that characterised Everton this season.”

The mess behind the scenes at Goodison Park has been going on for far too long, with Toffees supporters rightfully annoyed at how things have been run at the Merseyside club.

Fans can simply point to how bad things are on the pitch to summarise the situation, with Everton now involved in a second successive relegation fight.

They managed to stay up by the skin of their teeth last season, with fans now needing that scenario to repeat itself this time around on the final day of the campaign. 

For once, things are in Everton’s control, with the Toffees sitting two points ahead of relegation rivals Leicester City and Leeds United with just one match to go.

But, as always, plenty of twists and turns can be expected on the final day, with Everton certain of staying in the top flight with a win against Bournemouth on Sunday (28 May).
