The ex-Liverpool defender yesterday delivered a scathing assessment of Farhad Moshiri’s reign, insisting he and the previous members of the Blues’ board were at fault for the poor decision-making that has resulted in two profit and sustainability charges.
Many have pointed the finger at the Premier League for twice finding Everton guilty, as well as Nottingham Forest once, having failed to complete their investigation into Manchester City’s 115 charges, though Carragher stressed in his Telegraph column anger should be directed toward those who created this “sorry situation”.
Reiterating his stance on this subject, the Sky Sports pundit on Thursday afternoon wrote on X (formerly Twitter: “I got dog’s abuse yesterday from Everton fans over this column for not supporting them. I stuck to my guns because I believe it to be right & having just listened to @slbsn on Talksport I’m glad I did!
“He made the point Everton could be in breach of the PSR rules for next season as well! Everton are feeding a narrative to their own supporters that they are being hard done to, the 10pts may be harsh but as I said yesterday, the ownership is a shambles!”
Sean Dyche’s side must wait to find out the verdict of their original appeal against the 10 points taken off them by the Premier League in November before discovering the implications of the second profit and sustainability blow.
Discussing the latest on this process during his press conference on Tuesday, Dyche said: “We still haven’t found out about the appeal yet, we’re still waiting on that and news on that. I think that’s a broad view that there’s a lot going on at this football club we’re trying to do right and in among that – or shortly before I got here – or relatively shortly, a war, and you’ve got sanctions over ownership and all that.
“It’s a strange situation to get an on-pitch sanction of 10 points – which we’re still waiting on the appeal quite obviously – who knows what comes next, so we’ve got to watch this space. So really I suppose that encapsulates a year’s view of what’s been going on, I try and give you a feel of it.”
