The Sunday newspapers in England are reporting that Everton and Newcastle United could be sold in the near future. If both clubs are sold to foreigners, that’ll mean 11 out of the 20 Premier League clubs will be foreign owned.
According to The Observer, Everton could be put up for sale if the government approves the club’s move from Goodison Park to Kirkby. Meanwhile, the News Of The World is reporting that Newcastle is in talks with one Asian company, while another Asian firm is very interested in purchasing the Tyneside club.
For Everton, it’s a question of whether the club wants to live in the past or move into the future. Many people, myself included, would hate to see Everton leave Goodison Park due to the history and the beauty of their ground. Moving outside Liverpool to a brand-new ground will generate more revenue for the club in terms of corporate facilities and additional punters in the seats, but the heart and soul would be ripped out of Everton Football Club. And who wants to have a Tesco supermarket on the same facility as a football ground?
Newcastle, despite their passionate fanbase, are a club in trouble mostly on the pitch. The club needs a massive injection of cash and a better run board to steer the Toon to future success. At the rate that Mike Ashley is going right now with few transfer signings, Kevin Keegan will be the first Premier League manager sacked this upcoming season.
If one of the Asian companies can buy out Ashley and spend the big money the club needs, Newcastle can get off its feet again and start pushing for a Champions League qualifying position.
If you’re a Everton or Newcastle fan — or a football supporter with an opinion — what would you do if you were Everton or Newcastle? Would you move to Kirkby and would you sell your club to an Asian billionaire? Share your thoughts by clicking the comments link below.
