Evans Remains 167th in Rich List
Sunday, 13th May 2018 10:52

Town owner Marcus Evans remains the joint-167th richest person in the UK with his wealth having increased to £800 million, according to the 2018 Sunday Times Rich List.

In the two previous years Evans’s wealth was estimated to be £765 million in the annual Rich List, which is based on "identifiable wealth"; land, property, publicly-quoted shares and other assets, but not bank accounts to which they don’t have access.

As TWTD reported in May last year, Evans sold his World Productions TV company for around £30-£40 million.

Further to that, according to The Sunday Times: “Profits at his £550 million firm nudged £32 million and while his property operation has slipped, his Championship football team Ipswich Town and his conference business have made up for it.”

The Blues made a loss of £4.3 million in the year to June 2017, so presumably they are suggesting the value of the club has increased during the last year.

Town sources have previously dismissed Rich List estimates of Evans’s wealth as highly speculative.

He's probably moved up into the top 100 now David McGoldrick has left.

On the subject of ME, this is funny for any of you that haven't seen it (see here: Marcus hits a lovely tee shot but then blows the chance of a birdie. When I saw Marcus' tee shot I thought he's got a better chance of going pro than Bullard! ;-)

And check out Harry Redknapp's golf swing, absolutely hilarious, that gives me hope yet!

And was obviously just joking about DmG. Best I could come up with after being up till gone 3am and nursing a sore head!

That link might not of worked, I'll try it again below and if it still doesn't work go to YouTube and search "Marcus Evans close to a hole in one playing with Paul Jewell - ITFC (Extended version)"

Could we see some of that spent on transfers please Marcus

Good work Midas, nice swing shame bout the short game!! Nice to know Marvellious is simply rolling in it, 15 richest in East Anglia by all accounts. Let’s hope we see plenty more of his ‘wedge’ and I ain’t talking golf.

Given they don’t have access to bank accounts or off shore holdings in places like the British Virgin Islands, it’s probably safe to assume ME is a billionaire. However you need one of those these days just to vaguely compete. He’s over £100m in and has said he doesn’t need to recover that money:
Some of you don’t know how lucky we are to have a man who effectively burns £7-8m of his cash every year on the club. If anyone thinks he’s doing this for dishonest or selfish reasons you are crazy. I’m sure if you could guarantee spending millions got us promotion he’d do it. Look at what he gave Keane and it was a lot in comparison to most in the division at the time... where did we finish in Keanes reign?
My only complaint would be, seeing what MM did with practically no cash, he should have trusted him to not waste money if given millions.

Monkey Blue, agree with some of what you said, but as far as splashing out when Keane was in charge is concerned, he splashed it with the wrong manager, a total gamble on a ''big name'' which backfired big time.

bobble added 12:50 - May 13
poor football judgement by him investing a lot in the psychopathic dark lord has cost us promotion...

I do get a bit fed up of all the negativity around Roy Keanes tenure at ITFC.
A lot of money was spent by ITFC in this time however all of the negotiations and subsequent deals were done by a certain Mr Clegg and NOT Roy Keane. Keane identified targets and Clegg tried to get them done.
Whatever happened then, happened, but the football was never as bad under RK (he got us to a Cup Semi btw !!!) as it was under MM.
It is time for a new start (hopefully) and let us stop blaming something that happened 7-8 years ago

/dirtydingusmagee- no argument from me on Keane. I wasn’t happy Jim was sacked and not happy Keane was appointed but I have him the benefit. One of my school friends is mates with one Ipswich’s scouts and the stories he told me make Keane worse than many suspect. A total sociopath as well as mentally unstable. The scouting network was utterly dispirited by his reign as he ignored many players they reccomeded and only signed the ones he identified himself. They went to watch one striker who was utterly abject but Keane still wanted to sign him. Fortunatley he went elsewhere. As I say, the manager who showed the best judgement in the market was MM and got far less money than any of the three previous managers under Marcus.

Monkey_Blue added 15:15 - May 13
Heathen66- please name something positive about Keanes reign? He was utterly unsuited to... just being with people let alone managing them.

I see Ed Sheeran is £28 million better off than he was a year ago.

Just saying !

jas0999 added 16:28 - May 13
... even RK couldn’t believe how much we paid for some players, particularly Priskin and Fullop.

bazergan added 17:46 - May 13
Keane just let it go and remember the magic word when asking for money.........clear the club debts..............get an ambitious young manager who wants to make a name for himself and the club ...........and PLEASE lets have some luck next season :)

heathen66 added 19:14 - May 13
Monkey_Blue, I think I did Cup Semi Final and yes, we beat Arsenal 1-0 at home

wayway added 20:26 - May 13
Keane should have been banned from football for life for deliberately going on the pitch to end a players career. But of course he played for the right club, i e Northern Scum

People are really quite good at spending other people’s money are

10% of his wealth should be just about right for transfer budget but we will probably get sweet FA.

"his Championship football team Ipswich Town and his conference business have made up for it" - they think Town's value has INCREASED over the last year? Surely a joke.
