Anyone who believes this needs their head examined. One only need look at Tottenham to see what the real cost would be. Theirs is exceeding £1B and was originally quoted as £400M.

Expect much the same here. If we only spend £500M, we might have a stadium that would have done just fine... in 1999.

Didnt Spurs have to pay something stupid for the land though and it'll probably be a lot more complex than ours as they have sliding pitches etc for NFL?

The design is surely a series of tiers that all overlap each other.

That is the only design that has fans as close to the action as possible.

Great for the sides but not for behind the goal, however Elstone has previously said about a large home end, make that two large home ends, ala Dortmund's behind BOTH goals, combined with thosemultiple tiers that overlap on the sides and we will have a cracker of a stadium. Please don't underwhelm.

Expectations are so high and opinion so varied that it will definitely underwhelm.

However, what you have described wrapped in something unique would tick near enough every box for me. (Even though i prefer the Gwladys to the Park end)

I'd have little subtle touches such as the criss crosses, on the tiered side stands, not just tucked somewhere rubbish just as a fake nudge to our past. I'd also have the Main Stand gable, opposite the Littlewoods clock. Subtle yet classy images that do not cost the earth and do not impact the design.
 
The stadium exterior really will divide opinion, but I'd leave that up to others to argue over, I'm not too fussed, but a decent stadium should mean room to expand in a couple of stands anyway so you'd be changes the exterior anyhow in the future.

There are loads of different opinions out there so bound to be disappointed but would want a reasoned argument behind each stand design Everton went for.

It makes no sense, other than lack of space, why we would only have one home end. If they deem design 'x' to be the best design for an End Stand, then anything other than 'x' is not the best design at the opposite end.   

My main spec is the Lower Gwladys St, I always take the opportunity to go in different parts of the ground and see the ground from as many different perspectives. The Park End is similar size to the Lower Gwladys in depth, 39 rows of seats vs 41. In terms of noise projection it is far superior and can spread songs far easier than the Lower Gwladys St. The Lower Gwladys St is better in that you get far more standing, better terrace feel from being shallower, more regular atmosphere but just doesn't project elsewhere, but far better to be part of.

What it could be when compared to the away end of the Lower Bullens is that the last row is against the wall, whereas you have a bit of a concourse behind the last row of the Lower Gwladys.

It's a lesson though that when you have tiers that overlap then make sure the overhang can project sound.

Ah not much, just our lovely neighbours, aided and abetted by the media (and probably the F.A.) are managing to dodge a racism allegation by trying to taint our player, who raised the complaint, by finding a tenuously homophobic tweet he made when he was a minor.

Standard stuff, really.

Are they duck flavoured noodles? Or noodles with chunks of proper duck?
