Fair enough it's a pro/rel story because they might get relegated. Didn't realize Farhad Moshiri was from Merseyside. And yeah the multi-national market does make it harder but they are in the prem. They are one of the 20-25 richest clubs in the world. Are they getting as much as their handsome neighbors across the park? Nope, but compared to most of the footballing world they are winning from the new world order. They are not Red Star, or even Burnley. And finally how is this related to pro/rel? They've been in the prem the entire time this was happening, they're not Oldham or Swindon Town. Well they've been in the division for almost 70 years and Neville Southall is no longer in goal so they've clearly rebuilt multiple times without being relegated. As others have as well. We've also seen clubs rebuild in the lower division, Burnley is the current example. So teams can rebuild in a pro/rel world we see it all the time it just looks different. Another point Everton may very well collapse without relegation. Yep and all the US supporters who liked Tim Howard and listen to Roger Bennet will have to decide if they are really the hardcore non bandwagon supporters they think they are. Yep or at least offer an attainable rabbit to chase to keep the dream of survival alive. So okay it's related to pro/rel in that they are going to be part of the relegation story all season, Inshallah. But pro/rel is not related to their financial mess, that they made themselves.
