Should make it in the shape of a castle with moats and shit, with a place to hang the kopites.

In this day and age, where it is essential to use anything you can legitimately to get an advantage over your opposition -  the "one off" chance to design your home ground to suit you is a something Everton just simply have to exploit.

We ain't ever building another, so get this one spot on.

Bowl or not I think one of the main criteria that should be the considered in the design is a safe standing area/stand.

It'll be coming back sooner rather than later and for it to be effective in a new build it'll need to be designed into the stadium now rather than an ad hoc renovation in 5/10 years time.


I've never got the hype over standing sections tbh, I personally couldn't think of anything worse, I just couldn't be arsed standing for 90+ minutes.

Also name wise if there is a sponsor it would be nice to be for a product/business that we all like!

It's not for me now either Dunc. But obviously there's a movement back towards that and you need to be ready for it.

Looking at all the new stadiums that have been built recently plus the two new proposed ones at Spurs and Chelsea there's no real scope for it. They just seem all about shallow stands and corporate hospitality suites.  I'd at least like to see we've been imaginative about this given the current desire.

Who knows we could be the first British club to build a football stadium with a purpose built safe standing area? Another Everton first.

But Newlands is better, no?

Newlands is Cape Town stadium. Looks nicer does Cape Town but Soccer Coty has a better atmosphere and easier to watch the game.

Google Moses Mabhida Stadium. That is one awesome stadium.

You can still fill in the corners without having to make it a bowl.
Talking of filling in would the spoil from St. Peppers tunnels fill in the dock?

Are you messing?

The stands are super close to the pitch.



Was talking more about the gradient than the proximity

As nice as it looks I'd be distraught at the inside of our stadium being like that!

How about capacity, 60,000? Would we fill it, that's the important question

Not currently, but if we're serious about wanting to be one of the top clubs in the country then we need the infrastructure to support that growth.
