The internet came alive today for Evertonians as a series of emails allegedly between Director of Communications Ian Ross and CEO Robert Elstone among other people connected to Everton Football Club were leaked on fan site “Toffeeweb”. The damning exchanges supposedly took place earlier this year and paint an incredibly grim picture of life within the walls of Goodison Park including:-
- Claims that Chairman Bill Kenwright is extremely paranoid of mutiny and closely questions conversations that happen between staff and his fellow board members.
- It was clear in the early summer that “1, maybe 2 players must be sold this month(August)”.
- It names The Liverpool Echo, Radio personalities, unofficial fan sites and ex players as some of the outlets that the club can use to stifle the upcoming Blue Union Protest.
- One of the mails interestingly estimates that the asking price for the club would be around the 100 million pound mark and that Everton are ” in financial meltdown”.
This Evening reports are even suggesting that a senior employee of the club has been suspended from his position although we must reiterate that currently all allegations are just as such and nothing has been shown to prove that the emails are genuine or that anyone has been given leave from duties.
All of this comes just 24 hours before the second protest planned by The Blue Union in an effort to force the sale of the club. The Protest will be held before tomorrows match against Wolves.
