Usmanov

Moshiri is the M in USM, and is therefore able to sign off a certain level of expenditure on sponsorships, probably.
There is no proven, direct involvement by Usmanov.
And Al Capone was just an honest businessman or so he claimed.

That's true, but his pull in financial areas will be significantly stronger than Moshiri.
If Usmanov were knowingly involved with Everton, finance would be sorted.
Isn’t it rather that he is best placed on the outside pouring money in through sponsorship rather than officially own the club and be subject to FFP?

What was dismissed as nonsense and fantasy from fans become Panorama/BBC worthy being the point;

Mad how that whole ‘Paradise Papers’ thing just vanished from the public eye, isn’t it?

I'm going to make a stab in the dark, all be it an educated one, and say that quite soon after planning permission is obtained ( if not before ) and the scope of the work is official, then the financing of the build will become public knowledge.

I'd also hazard a guess that, barring any unforeseen issues, the financing will just need a few i's dotted and a few t's crossed and, as a minimum, the fact that Moshiri and Usmanov are very closely linked, won't have done any harm in sorting the finances out.

I recognise that some Evertonians, especially those who perhaps would like to be more closely involved with running the club, would like the BoD to tell them more than what they are being told, but that isn't how the majority of big businesses work, so it's just tough.

All of the above comes purely from a great big dose of common sense, and a fair few years of being involved in a very small way in various projects in various industries, none of which involved building a stadium or financing a football club, but the principles are the same.

In summary, nice one Alisher for being indirectly involved in our club.
