55'000 would be the ideal figure for me. Why not ?

I'd go for 60k, if it was financially viable. I think people underestimate the potential uptake of new season ticket holders in a brand new stadium, in addition to sporadic matchgoers and then tourists and daytrippers (which although annoying, is inevitable, and should be exploited)
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Little doubt gates would go up, but 20,000?  That's a lot and at the end of the day someone has to pay a lot of money to build that much bigger and in the circumstances they may prefer to build lower with capacity to expand when the demand is more measurable.
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

I did say 'if it's financially viable'. It might not go up 20k overnight, but I think easily 10-15k and then hopefully as the teams grows towards it's ambitions in the future 60k wouldn't be an issue.

I also don't really see a few thousand seats empty in a 60k stadium as that much of an issue personally.

I don't think we'll actually fill a 55k stadium after the first 2 years.
Without becoming genuinely successful/challenging.

And this is the point. We'll have 2-3k empty seats on a 55k after the new-stadium bounce.
Fuck it being 7-12k

All guesswork though innit? (on my part as well).

No doubt they'll be doing viability studies into it, but even that's probably not all that scientific.

Is it that easy to get tickets these days though? We'd have to increase our general sales allocation. Saying that bigger capacity would help with that.

Being 60k+ is great but fantasy land, but making the seats SORT OF match 1878 is like...would it even be a powerful message? It would be an OK marketing gimmick at best and this is one of the biggest considerations of the clubs history - surely can’t be thinking about (quite crap) marketing gimmicks at the same time you are talking about era-defining change.

It never really bothered be but when you put it like that...

Anyone like the look of this? I like the roof. Not sure about the rest like.

Would love something like that for our stadium using a slightly flattened Ruperts Tower - upright (when closed) flattened (when open). Someone email Dan Meis.

.......................anyone looking for tickets when they get to general sale is only going to get the worst obstructed views. So they might not bother . (The exception is when the away team don't take the full allocation and we sell the UV to home fans. )
So I reckon we would pick up a lot more 'casual' fans if they could get a decent seat.
On the question of capacity @Bluedylan  ,Meis more or less said at St.Lukes the figure of 60k isn't physically do-able  ,even if it was  financially viable.
 
We are special ,we are Everton.

For sure, staring at a pillar for 90 minutes certainly puts me off buying a ticket!
