I really don't see us filling 55,000 tbh, thats a big uptake on the 39,000 that go now, back in the 80,'s heyday, we were only getting about 29,000 on average, and that's when football was affordable.

we sell 40k per game now and have a 9-10k waiting list.

If season ticket holders number 45k, you dont think we could sell 10k tickets to:
first game of the season
last game of the season
Liverpool
United
Chelsea
Arsenal
City
A festive game

?

With even a modicum of success you could add to those games.

55,000 seats doesn't have to be sold out every game right this second.

If we average 45k a game(which is very realistic) while selling out 8-9 games a season we should be fine.

Think of it like building a bridge over to a suburb of 50k people that is predicted to grow to 80k people in the next decade and only building a two lane bridge. That would be pretty stupid...

...................I think you're being over cautious. Everton is on a roll ,the city of Liverpool is on a roll. We would fill 55,000 for most games. Imagine casual supporters being able to buy a seat where you could actually see the pitch !
Everton's prices have been frozen for a while and has loads of cheap tickets for young fans. A season ticket costs less than £30 per game . Whether you call that affordable depends on your own circumstances of course.
We are special ,we are Everton.

The people on that waiting list though probably attend most games, maybe I am being cautious, I'd just hate see  lot's of empty seats.

We do have a good pricing strucure, I agree, and that does tempt lots of younger supporters, for the likes of myself, I have two sons, so for all three of us to go, costs a small fortune. What I was getting at though was we couldnt sell out Goodison when we had a 53,000 capacity, were winning the league and prices were cheap.

To some extent.
We sold 31k season tickets last year (plus however many halfs).
Add another few thousand reserved for the aways and from the 10k waiting list it is safe to assume 3 or 4k of them go anyway

That kind of thinking would have stopped us increasing capacity at the park end.
It is mad how low attendences were in the 80s and early 90s though.

Southampton at home, we won 1-0, Cottee scored, Kendall resigned after the game, attendence just over 13,000

Those were the days

We're getting high 40's now.

It's not the empty seats that make the noise it's the fans.

If we get a 60k stadium and have 50k in it - it will sound like a 50k crowd. Why bookmark some future date for added expense and upheaval when we can just build it now?

Arsed about some of the seats furthest away from the pitch being empty when we've got 50k in there - I just want the fans who are there to make some noise!

That last bitis the key.
It doesn't necessarily matter if there's empty seats if you start selling from front to back.
The closer to the pitch the fans are the better really, make the place as hostile as possible.

In real terms season ticket prices at Goodison have never been as low as they are now.

The average price for an over 18 season ticket (excluding over 65's) is £398 i.e. about £21 per game.

“It was the best 10 years of my career, in fact they are the only team I ever actually played for. That’s what happens when you play for Everton, you forget the rest, the rest means nothing.” - Duncan Ferguson
