If all the speculation is true about LCC making the announcement does it matter?
Whatever the behind the scenes dealing they will have to have been heavily involved to bring it to fruition.
Image and publicity is all important to politicians - if they get it wrong we don't vote for them. This could be a massive photo op for Liverpool that stretches far beyond Merseyside.
In addition why Peel? Doesn't mean a thing to anyone not interested in this redevelopment. If Everton do it it's a big football story for a few hours. I can't actually remember anything from any announcement from another club about a new ground. It's ordinary news today. Joe announces it from LCC and the potential media interest is much wider.
And Jimmy is right about funding - if there is a short term cost to LCC there will be a long term profit that goes towards services. All councils are now looking at ways to make money commercially as money from taxes reduces.
