I honestly don’t get it with him. He’s got a decent workrate (surprisingly) but he’s got the first touch of a walrus he’s on his arse moaning constantly. Blues sing him up like he’s world class he wouldn’t make our bench IMO. How the fuck he makes the Brazil squad is beyond me.

Because this is 2022 Brazil and not 1970's (or even 1990's) Brazil anymore?

New club sponsor, online gambling firm stake.com. 

 

Tory club gonna Tory. 

It would be very Everton to sign a deal with a gambling firm, just as moves are underway to ban gambling firms from shirt sponsorship, from the season after next.

It is not even a 2002 Brazil when their forwards (Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho) not only had skill but also more class than Neymar and Richie.

Joey is about to feel the full force of Everton's social media Ultras. He'll be cancelled before lunch. 

He's been fighting off the might of crypto bro's across twitter for a couple of years, he should be well practiced.

Evertonians hand in hand with crypto bro’s, neither understanding exactly what it is the other stands for but both in full agreement that it’s the powers that be involved when they lose everything.

Guffaws. Before the Betting company bans comes in, 'what would moral high horse in an ivory tower fc do?' But, what can you expect from just about the only entity never mind football club, that has just 'suspended' the involvement of oligarch Usmanoz rather than cancelling it?

 

Everton have signed a gambling company as their main shirt sponsor in defiance of plans to ban such deals and despite previously stating they would ideally not do so.

 

A government source told Telegraph Sport the club had made “a real strategic error” by agreeing a minimum three-year partnership with Stake.com ahead of the imminent publication of a White Paper following a review of the Gambling Act.

 

Campaigners against front-of-shirt gambling sponsors also condemned the club for a “remarkably short-sighted” decision during a “cost-of-living crisis”, adding: “How can Everton continue to call itself ‘The People’s Club’?”

 

The forthcoming White Paper had been due to stop short of outlawing such deals, with ministers expecting Premier League teams to adopt a voluntary ban.

 

But the Telegraph has been told that could change after financially-stricken Everton announced a record partnership worth more than £10 million-a-year on the same day top-flight teams were due to discuss the issue at their annual general meeting in Harrogate.

“It’s a real strategic error by Everton and might force the Government to go further in its plans around sponsorship,” a Whitehall source said.

Everton signed the deal barely two years after terminating a similar partnership with Kenyan gambling giant SportPesa two years early, with chief executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale stating at the time: “In an ideal world, moving forward, we would look to have a different type of sponsor on the front of our shirts, like all football clubs would, but that is a commercial decision that we make as a football club.”

 

They subsequently signed a two-year contract with online car retailer Cazoo but that ended this summer after they were unable to agree an extension.

 

Their deal with Stake.com, which sponsored Watford last season, comes after they suspended all commercial and sponsorship activities with companies linked to Alisher Usmanov, who was sanctioned over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

 

That compounded record losses of £371.8 million posted by the club in the previous three financial years.

Leeds United and Burnley last month threatened to sue both the Premier League and club over the scale of the losses unless they could prove how they had lost so much without breaking profit and sustainability rules.

 

Everton insisted they had complied with those rules.

Days later, Crystal Palace became the first Premier League club to ditch a gambling firm as their main shirt sponsor amid plans to ban them.

 

Everton’s Stake.com partnership was condemned by Charles Ritchie, co-founder of Gambling with Lives, who lost his son Jack aged 24 to gambling-related suicide five years ago.

 

He said: “To announce this partnership on a day when research reveals hundreds of thousands of people are losing thousands of pounds each year on the most addictive online gambling products – with a third of these from most-deprived areas – is remarkably short-sighted, especially during a cost-of-living crisis.

 

“There are more than 400 gambling-related suicides in England each year and the way in to gambling for many is through football. Many Everton fans also come from deprived areas and many will become addicted to gambling and, tragically, some will die.

“How can Everton continue to call itself ‘The People’s Club’?”

Prof Barrett-Baxendale said: “Stake.com is an ambitious organisation with impressive growth plans and we’re all very excited to enter into a partnership with them at this stage in their journey.

 

“My talented colleagues in our new revenue team have made excellent progress in recent months and worked tirelessly to secure what is the biggest main partnership deal in the club’s history – I’d like to congratulate them on this achievement and, on behalf of everyone at the club, express my gratitude to Stake.com for choosing Everton as a long-term partner.”
