Seeing as how Royal Liverpool is going to host the 2022 Open, it would be nice if they were showing some video of the spanking new ground at the docks during the broadcast. Don't you think?
Be great but you can't see that way from Hoylake can you?

Here they always show scenes from around the city for nationally televised games.
Yeah. Royal Liverpool golf club is about a half hour drive from Liverpool

Steve Jones has defo got the kind of dirt on someone at the club that they don't know I have on them too

Boss experience to play on the pitch though, and it's weird to see how close your seat is to the pitck, and realise just how clearly you can probably be heard.

Could you have maybe posted it here before someone posted him then?
You mean in the thread / linked article that we posted at 6:30am?

Ah. Didn't see that sorry!
I had to check it had gone up, as it was 6:30 so it was entirely possible I had forgotten to click something

Echo confirming it's 52k it seems.
Everton confirm its 52k

Potential to rise to 62k eventually

60k stadium costs considerably more I think, and may not even be possible to fit a stadium that big in the limited space available. Hopefully we can get another few thousand on top and have it around 54/55k, that should be able to be full and big enough
Is it a limited space? What's it limited by?

...................is that a serious question ? You know very well the site is restricted and Meis himself has acknowledged that.
Yeah, I'm not convinced it needs to be restricted to be honest.

There is room for a car park in between the stadium and the river for a start, and towards the city is a fucking huge empty plot of land. Like twice the size of BMD.

And I don't bother reading what Meis says these days to be honest. It's all scripted and choreographed by the club. Except for when he favourites porn tweets late at night.

....................if you mean Nelson Dock and it's environs I didn't know that was part of Everton's plans or even within our control.
It will be part of the wider development which will, likely, include car parking etc. Could probably get away with not putting one on the waterfront and reducing our footprint on purpose I reckon.

This is from Peel's Liverpool Waters document and only shows the stadium in a purely schematic version.The size looks to be exaggerated but the stadium site is nevertheless constrained by water on three sides and a listed dock wall on the other.
So you build a plynth

Probably roughly the same in price to filling in a Dock, and can overlap wherever it's allowed. Also raises the floor level so the wall of the land can remain intact and untouched.

Having seen what will likely form a large part of the plans from the official Everton document earlier this year, we've all seen the waste of land in action.

If, as expected, the plans are unveiled ahead of a planning application and as part of the second phase of consultation, then it's fairly safe to assume its all done and dusted before now. That, along with the fact that Everton were fuming about the leaked document, would lead me to believe that the document was very close to the real thing.

I'm not overwhelmed by that. There were some nice touches, but it misses a trick or two. Wasting land by putting a fucking car park between the stadium and the water is just one of them. Reducing the foot print like that on purpose is just bizarre.

Hopefully the designs improve since that document was drawn up

The six sided clock isn't surrounded by water currently by the way. That picture has had a Dock recreated which doesn't currently exist.

...............I think you are mistaken on this point.  The dockers clock stands at the river entrance to Salisbury Dock ,completely surrounded by water. 
As for the car park between the stadium and the river ,this is surely a non-starter . Matchday access would be almost impossible. There wouldn't be much room anyway due to the channnel that has to be maintained between the docks .
You'd hope it wasn't happening and that the club had told Meis to remove it.

As has been said often enough though, it's the hope that kills you.
