I'd be pleased for them, but now it'll just be continuous "power shift" or "their heads have gone at little old everton" or some other such shite, which just takes the shine of for me.

Also moves them further away from us too, which is an obvious bonus and maybe they will turn their current ground into something useful like a car park.

We could use a car park on match days to be honest. LFC should buy Goodison.  ;)

Goodison already is used as a car park (the Park End) on matchdays. My old boss had a parking spec there.

Kin ell, I've lived in Bedford for 11 years and I've never heard of it  ;D

I only discovered it by chance whilst taking a detour to avoid an accident on the A428 that had gridlocked Wyboston and winging it. It did seem to have a faintly depressing dismal air about the place.

There is one in Hampshire too...

Ah that would be the reason I've not heard of it. I live just off the 428. Once that Black Cat roundabout on the A1 is clogged, everyone with a SatNav is driving blindly through the countryside like lemmings. Even the local paper has no mention of an Everton in the sports pages in the Bedford versions of the old I Zingari leagues.  ;D

I'm not surprised there are little places in the countryside with the same name as the Shite.

Apparently, the word 'Everton' is derived from the Saxon word 'eofor', meaning wild boar (bore?  :) ) that lives in forests.

That's possibly been update to crazy bore that drinks in the Red Brick.

I've seen those pictures and they seem mental to me.

Look how close the walkways are to the waterline. In rough winds, there are going to be five foot waves smashing into it and over it and it's going to be as blowy as fuck.

If you've ever worked in town near the Albert Dock or anywhere near Seaforth or Bootle then even inland the winds are incredible.

This is right out into where the worst winds are likely to be which will cause havoc with the ball for most months of the year, not to mention how much the weather could affect pedestrians and vehicles going into, leaving and within the structure.

Spurs being much more expensive wasn’t just down to the ground don’t forget.   They had other costs.


And it’s clearly not either as big or as fancy as spurs’ stadium.

I reckon £500m is a bit optimistic, but i don’t see it as being ridiculously so

The steel price rise hampered Hicks and Gillett's stadium plans as well as I recall? Forced a redesign of the stadium. Thank goodness we dodged that bullet!

How on earth have they moved the existing Bullens Rd stand in its entirety and got it to Bramley Moore (left hand side shed)? Also love the fact that instead of a players tunnel they have a players waterway (right hand side next to halfway line), perhaps the players will get on to the pitch from a barge.
I have drummed it into our players time and again that they are privileged to play for you & if they didn't believe me then they believe me now!

In case anybody didn't know, the Mersey has the second highest tidal range in the UK after the Severn.  I hope Everton have taken this into account.

Ah thanks. That's a shame. Shitfactory End would have been hilarious and a continuous source of wind ups. But in any case the best thing is that if it ever gets built, the sewage works would itself have a Shitfactory End.

*if it ever gets built
Seriously.
In the light of games being cancelled due to high winds as per City, or ice and snow on roads and paths leading to the ground, the location north of the Pier Head could prove a tad exposed. Especially, if their artists impressions are to be believed, there is very close proximity to the river and the dock waters. Mann Island is bleak enough in the Winter, let alone further down river.

I've seen those pictures and they seem mental to me.

Look how close the walkways are to the waterline. In rough winds, there are going to be five foot waves smashing into it and over it and it's going to be as blowy as fuck.

If you've ever worked in town near the Albert Dock or anywhere near Seaforth or Bootle then even inland the winds are incredible.

This is right out into where the worst winds are likely to be which will cause havoc with the ball for most months of the year, not to mention how much the weather could affect pedestrians and vehicles going into, leaving and within the structure.

I used to live in that white set of flats in front of the Echo (ahem, sorry, M&S Bank) Arena with my ex. The wind coming off the river is brutal in the latter days of Autumn and the whole of Winter. Had to lean into the wind to make any sort of headway from the car to the flat some days and you'd see horizontal rain when it was really bad. Add to that all the additional moisture in the air meant the ground got slippy often and they could have some fun getting the fans in the ground. Going to be old fellas taking off all over the shop.

Wasn't all bad like, the seagulls took a particular dislike to a car in the car park for some reason and would use it to break open the mollusks/mussels they'd find in the river. Just dive streaight in to the river, fly up as high as they could and lash them onto the car. Was covered in dents, broken windows and windshield and as much seagull shit as they could muster. They pretty much ignored most other cars and made me wonder what slight this car had done to them.

If the bitters could adjust to the conditions, it would be a great home advantage for them as everyone else would be baffled by the conditions.
