If we get American owners, that may change, but as ever, we may have missed the boat...

I agree Danny that EFC needs to do more marketing. I went to a Chelsea/Napoli game in Washington, DC. Chelsea had several tents near the entrances where they gave away thousands of plastic Chelsea flags to the fans. Lots of kids, even mine, waved them at the game and took them home.

I'm a Liverpool lad from Old Swan who has lived in California for 35 years, and my American wife has become a Blue. I've taken her to one game at Goodison, unfortunately it was Palace last season when we lost 3-2.
The Everton USA fans group are taking their third annual trip to Goodison around St Patty's Day for the Arsenal game.

I am sure that if a US consortium takes charge of the there will be big changes/improvements to the commercial operation- Danny #1: If Leicester City win the Premiership they will have pole position in the Thai merchandise market given their ownership, you will be able to buy a Foxes shirt easily over there! We have missed the boat with the Chang deal, even though my friend in Phuket tells me that the Thais routinely refer to Everton as "The Changs".
