PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Everton's board of directors are due to speak at this evening's General Meeting of the shareholders in one of the most anticipated events in the club's calendar. The pandemic has forced the Meeting to be held online with shareholders set to hear a live address from chairman Bill Kenwright before listening to presentations from Marcel Brands, Denise Barrett-Baxendale and Sasha Ryazantsev. An interview with manager Carlo Ancelotti is also to be aired but Farhad Moshiri is not expected to deliver a speech tonight (6pm). Shareholders have been asked to submit questions in advance to replace the live Q&A session which takes place in normal circumstances. In recent years, General Meetings have been headline-grabbing nights with Evertonians brought up to speed - and first hand - on transfers, stadium plans and finances from the club's power-brokers. Here we look back at some of the stand-out moments from recent dramatic General Meetings. War of words Then chief executive Robert Elstone was on stage at the Philharmonic Hall. Then Mayor Joe Anderson was at home, scrolling through social media. Yet a war of words over Everton's proposed move to a new stadium at Walton Hall Park erupted. In many ways, it broke the ice on tense talks between the club and local authority and helped pave the way for plans at Bramley-Moore Dock but on that night, in November 2015, the club's hopes of finding a new home were in turmoil.

Anderson, via Twitter, would reply: "I think that’s an insult to me and the council. This is a council that helped Everton by purchasing Finch Farm. We are trying to find a solution, so to say we are not working in partnership is an insult. “We are still willing to talk but to say they have not got true partnership is not helpful.” Moshiri's call to arms In the majority shareholder's three on-stage appearances at General Meetings, he has always handed over the microphone having made an impression. From controversial claims about Lukaku's decision to leave, to comments about Ross Barkley's agent or brutally honest assessments of the team or need for a new stadium, shareholders have been left hanging on his every word. Moshiri was absent from last year's meeting - called away on stadium financing business - and is not expected to speak this evening but it's one of his first utterances that remains the most poignant. Take our 30-second Everton transfer survey and let us know what Carlo Ancelotti needs to do in the January window. In early January, 2017 Moshiri delivered the line: “It’s not enough to say you are a special club and a great club – we don’t want to be a museum. We need to be competitive and to win. " It remains the stand-out comment by which his time at the helm will always be measured.

. Talk of Walton Hall Park had long since died away and was replaced by whispers of Bramley-Moore Dock. And this time, with Mayor Anderson sat on the front row at the Philharmonic Hall, the chatter about the dock site grew significantly louder. Anderson, invited to speak by Kenwright, said: “Everybody in this room wants the waterfront site. We have got ‘Plan Bs’ but everyone is working exhaustingly hard to deliver the site you all want. "It is a unique opportunity to seize so we will be supporting the club. This is the most exciting opportunity this club has had in decades and we will make sure it is developed and it happens along with the leadership there and with me working alongside Everton FC.” Sign up to our free EFC email newsletter Get all the latest reaction to the match, Carlo Ancelotti's next move and more.

Sign up here - it only takes a few seconds! Flawed logic The then director of football Steve Walsh went on the offensive in January 2018. Having reeled off a list of names featured in the press as being linked with moving to Everton, he tried to defend his inability to have a replacement for Romelu Lukaku lined up and waiting. “If you took away all of Romelu Lukaku’s goals last season, we still would have finished seventh," he said. Not only did Walsh's petulant use of a stat fail to take into account the six goals Lukaku had assisted in the league that same season, it also ignored his overall contribution to the team, his ability to stretch and worry defenders and make room for others. But, above all, it was a poor attempt to cover his tracks for having not replaced the top scorer. Everton General Meeting 2020 Total Moshiri investment revealed Two banks enlisted to help fund stadium Everton agree £30m USM deal Record losses explained Breath of fresh air Marcel Brands will be making his third address at a General Meeting tonight and his honesty and articulate presentations have been a welcome addition. And in a delivery typical with many Dutchmen involved in football, Brands has not sugar coated his messages and is clear and exact in what he has said. But, of course, his headline grabbing line from 12 months ago was to do with the Wilfried Zaha saga which had dominated the summer of 2019. “If you look at our numbers, that is not realistic," he said, bluntly. Brands laid out the club's transfer strategy in that same presentation and spoke of having done over 70 transfers since he arrived and has never been shy of sharing elements of the finances spent and recouped under his watch.
