Everton Shareholders Association have been working on a fairly long list of question for Monday night's Annual General Meeting.

The 41 questions have been categorized under five headings:

  • The Board and Directors
  • New Stadium
  • Financial Performance
  • Selling the Club and / or Seeking Investment
  • Miscellaneous

The questions are listed in this electronic file [pdf] that can be downloaded from the ESA webite. This document provides the Board and Management of Everton Football Club Limited with questions that Shareholders would like to be answered before or during the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. All questions have been asked by current shareholders whose shareholding has been validated by the Shareholders Register as of 3 September 2015 and provided to the Association by the Company Secretary.

Thanks for that Kevin.

Seems to ask many of the questions we would like answered except for the players on the pitch.

I would have asked what provision there is to back the team and the manager and confirmation that no "star" player will be sold in the near future.

Having read the questions, please could someone explain to me (apologies for my lack of knowledge in business!!) what type of wiggle room the CEO has in answering?

Does he have to be wholly open and transparent?

Is anybody watching BBC 2 right now ??

They are trumpeting how much money Sir Philip Green possesses and how amazing he is in business (and fashion). My question is: Why doesn't he do anything with us and give us a leg up.

Paul (#2),

I think part of the CEO's job is to answer the questions as fully as possible without actually giving any new information to those who pose the questions. Many of the most pertinent questions will likely see a response that will be long in length but short on content. However, you never know, we may discover some new things.

Perhaps this link will give you some idea of the phrases which may be used.

Because he supports Tottenham and the cash cow that feeds his SPV in the Caymans is a gravy train that just keeps on giving so he can just sit back and enjoy the rewards.

The Echo has a live blog from the AGM venue which begins its coverage at 5:30pm, the actual meeting begins at 6pm.

The obvious question is about improving our playing facilities. So I would ask:

Does the Board still rule out the redevelopment of GP as a viable option?

If not why not?

If a new ground is the preferred option what timescale is reasonable to expect this to come to fruition?

Can you ask the catering team to order more chocolate-chip cookies for half time in The People's Lounge because I'm fed up of only having those stem ginger ones?
