Dunno, seems like end of a era for both Everton and Liverpool to move away from West Derby and move into these super facilties outside the city.

I see your point. It's sad, I think you lose the community feel a little bit. Melwood and Bellfield are/were situated next door to houses, communities, shops, pubs. The same people who frequent those places are the same people who go to the match of a weekend. It wouldn't be a too dissimilar story if we move everything to Kirkby but the complex up there isn't quite enveloped by the norms of day to day life like Melwood is.

It wouldn't surprise me to see us relocate to a whole new site though.

Why?

Traffic issues, pressure on local schools. They want the grounds used for something that doesn't line the pockets of the club according to The West Derby Society.

As there is such a housing shortage , surely it is better to build on rather than leave this historic location to become a wasteland? The west derby society were always the epitome of nimbyism and even big fat Joe couldn't refuse building houses on this patch - in fact I bet he would carry the bricks himself if it meant our history being cemented over. Dalglish crescent, Moran walk, Evans avenue, Melwood estate , first time buyers would be delighted to move into a beautiful location.

The west derby society like to moan about infrastructure, roads and no school places. They do have a point, Mill Lane going to town of a morning just keeps getting worse. All those new houses on Hollylodge land and over the road will cause murder soon. Every family having two or more cars. I'd rather they built houses on Melwood than Alder Hey though and concentrate their efforts on that battle.

Not really a surprise that there are plenty of local objections, you rarely get an application for a big load of houses without them.

Liverpool a step closer to new training facility after planning permission granted for Melwood

Objections from local residents and councillors fail as club can sell training ground for residential development

I still remember Houllier and Murphy having a quick pint in the Standard after training one day. No doubt due to his superb free kick the week before when we beat Man U at Old Trafford. So long ago now. The place was quite empty but a guy in a wheelchair who was on his own went over and asked for their autographs and they sat down and drank with him. A long time back now but I'm sure the fella still remembers it like it was yesterday.

That seems curiously generous on the part of Knowlsey council. Not that I'm complaining mind.

Bet Klopp would kill for a full size indoor pitch this week. Will be great when this is all complete.

Our blue friends won't have to look too hard to find something to fewm over! We are selling the similar sized Melwood plot for circa 8m if you believe the Echo.
