Very sceptical about this myself, can't see why we'd be spending money revamping Goodison if we're about to buy land and build the new goodison.

Doesn't make sense.

I doubt it's cheap. And that tower structure at the corner of the Bullens looks pretty substantial for just tempory cladding.

just a steel shell isn't it?

it's the kind of stuff they throw up in a day on Grand Designs while Kevin McLoud looks on wistfully, desperately wishing they'd done it in Scandinavian pine instead

You're very sceptical about Moshiri in general, and whether he's putting serious money into the club aren't you? Is that fair to say?

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Pretty much yeah. So far I've seen nothing to suggest he's philanthropic benefactor people make him out to be.

He's not. He's a bad ass businessman that realises the premiership is potentially a way of making lots of money.

If you get it right of course.

Signs are looking good so far.

Personally I've got no doubts Moshiri will be putting his hand into deep pockets. I doubt there will be rash purchases as in the case of Niasse. I will say, "I had misgivings about the fee and the signing of Bolasie, but what do I know". He's showing my doubts to be totally unfounded. I'm very confident big money will be spent as we need to shore up our squad to cover the advent of the players leaving for the AFCON competition. We've missed a few signings but are doing very well without them. I think people need to keep the faith. I've been buzzing since Koeman got off that private jet at the John Lennon Airport. Potholes full of water and all. Come on Everton second in the table and it's purely on merit. I think the stadium will come. ;D

 Best case scenario involves us at Goodison for at least 3 years. Why wouldn't we want to maximise the experience for them 3 years?

Yes. It's not like we'd be moving next week.

The cladding and the tower is just a better idea than blue gravel to make things better in the short term.

I'd imagine that the club will be worth much more with a) a more successful team and b) a ground with potential for much more income.

He hasn't got enough money himself to finance it all so I don't think philanthropy is in his thinking.

If it was a boss, up to date modern area then the costs would be a whole lot more. Blank canvas,etc.
