Farhad Moshiri has attested that 777 Partners’ proposed ownership of Everton is what’s best for the team, but the deal has encountered many obstacles.

Given his sins over his nearly seven years in leadership, and the fact that he has dug the Toffees into a financial hole from which he no longer attempts to rescue them, very few people now actually pay attention to the Iranian businessman’s opinions on his club.

He is a sucker for outside investment, and it is doubtful that he would give a damn about the source.

By adding David Dein to their roster, the Miami-based company has taken a significant step toward realizing their dream of adding the Merseyside club to their already expansive list of owned teams.

Despite applauding the initiative, journalist Paul Brown expressed concern about the deal’s prospects of success in an interview with GIVEMESPORT, saying, “I think 777 will see it as a big step in the right direction.” According to my understanding of the procedure, the FA portion is the smallest portion of the regulatory process.

Therefore, I believe that the Premier League and the FCA will present the largest obstacles. The more difficult portions are yet to come; this is only part one of three.

“What I do know, and we mentioned to Josimar, is that 777 has brought in David Dein in an attempt to try and clear some obstacles and expedite the process.” It remains to be seen whether or not that is successful.

Who is David Dein?

Whilst Dein may be an unknown figure to many, his reputation across English football is immense and longstanding.

Having spent over two decades as vice-chairman at Arsenal, his tenure there allowed him to oversee one of the Gunners’ most illustrious periods, welcoming Arsene Wenger and reaping the rewards of the legendary Frenchman.

Whilst that experience will surely prove useful, it is likely his contacts with the Premier League and the FA will be of paramount importance, given he was one of the key architects that ushered in the former, and vice-chairman of the Football Association for a period too.

His expertise within English football will not only help 777 Partners see their bid to claim Moshiri’s stake in the club prove successful, but also translate their huge investment into a profitable one by helping turn Everton into a giant of the game once again.

When he joined Arsenal, the club were marooned in mid-table having not won a league title since 1971. Were he to perform a similar act with the Merseyside club, his involvement would swiftly be justified to those questioning the move
