Farhad Moshiri may want to commit one last Everton act with possible Sean Dyche sack decision as September deadline emerges

Farhad Moshiri may be tempted to commit one last act as Everton majority shareholder with a possible sack decision on Sean Dyche should he remain winless until the end of September.

Miami-based investment firm 777 Partners have agreed a deal with Moshiri to buy his 94.1% stake in the club, with a deal expected to be completed after checks are done in the final quarter of 2023.

Talks had been ongoing all week and Moshiri has now agreed to sell the club to controversial 777, who are led by Josh Wander.

However, Merseyside news outlet Liverpool Echo reported on Monday (18 September) that there still are “significant” hurdles before any takeover deal is completed, with checks needing to be completed amidst all the uncertainty surrounding Everton’s much anticpated new owners.

While the club are desperate to make progress off the pitch, the situation on it remains severely critical with the Toffees yet to taste Premier League victory so far in their five games of the new campaign.

And according to Former Daily Star journalist Paul Brown, should Dyche remain winless at Goodison Park until the end of September, Moshiri may be forced into a decision on his future – a potential last major hoorah for the controversial Everton majority shareholder

Speaking to Give Me Sport [11 September], Brown shared that the financial situation at Goodison Park is far from what it should be at Goodison Park and that Moshiri simply cannot afford another relegation battle which could derail any long-term takeover plans at the club.

And should Everton remain winless after the Luton Town game on 30 September, he may be forced into making a decision.

Brown said, “We all know that Everton’s finances are not in good shape. The owner cannot afford to have them fighting another relegation battle at a time when he’s trying to sell. That would be a disaster for him.

“So I don’t believe that Sean Dyche will survive very long if he keeps losing matches. That being said, I think a lot of people will probably look to the last game Everton play in September at home to Luton.

“I think if Everton hadn’t won a game by then and can’t manage to win that one, then it’s very difficult to see Sean Dyche staying in a job.”

Already five games into the season, and Everton look in tough shape. The defeat to Arsenal may well have been expected by several of the Toffees fans and neutrals but not the way they performed throughout the 90 minutes.

Dyche’s men looked bereft of confidence and ideas as Arsenal comfortably got to the finish line without any trouble at all as Everton failed to conjure up any meaningful attacking pressure while failing to match the aggression and intensity that had helped them to past results against the Gunners.

Their next two September fixtures are absolutely crucial as they face off against Brentford on 23 September, and Luton Town on the 30th with a EFL Cup date with Aston Villa on 27 September sandwiched in between.

And should the Toffees fail to pick up wins in those three critical tests, it won’t be a surprise to see Moshiri commit one last major act as Everton shareholder and call time on Dyche’s unfortunate managerial tenure.

Huge days are ahead at the football club.
