Early edition of Talking the Blues Podcast this week. We look at the major news of the week, Farhad Moshiri’s open letter to fans, we discuss the content and how perphaps it could have been different. We look at the news that Everton have announced their new main sponsor partner, Stake.com. We look at the implications of this for Everton and even the wider game.
Finally we remember our former player and manager the great Billy Bingham. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family, Rest in Peace Billy.
As ever, thanks for listening, all our podcasts are available on on Spotify, iTunes and many other podcast platforms.
Like yourselves I’m very disappointed by the shirt deal. Surprisingly, the RS seem to completely escape any scrutiny of their sponsorship by the Standard Chartered Bank who have been fined over $1bn for sanction busting in Russia and Iran and for money laundering.
That was sobering lads,I’m disgusted with the BOD’s decision regarding the sponsor they have installed,absolute hypocrisy. Clearly there is no long term plan and everything is so amateur.
I met Billy Bingham once and he told me we weren’t far away from a league winning team under his stewardship, just a couple of players.
Our club has fallen a long way from grace, that’s for sure.
Another very interesting, if sobering podcast. The choice of sponsor really does have a whiff of panic and the seeming lack of vision or plan is just par for the course at this stage. As for a jersey without a Sponsor? I’d buy one in heartbeat, I hate the idea of buying a Jersey & providing advertising for online betting.
May be stake were the only ones willing to sponsor us if we got religated ?
