Dan really seems to be the man on this project ,he has got the Everton bug and is proud of it .Don't understand the need for sketches as they have said they are to involve the fans ,so I suppose there will be a few "what do the fans want ? " debates first .
I suspect he gives the same spin on every project, and why wouldnt he? I think he probably is passionate about all of his work but as soon as the cheque gets signed I suspect he moves on pretty quickly?
My personal view is that its a mistake to ask the fans as inevitably you'll get a million and one response about what it should look like and then when this isnt in the final detail it gets peoples back up because they never listened. My view is that were paying one of the best architects in the world to design us one of the best stadiums in the world so lets let him crack on with it. Im really excited to see what he can come up with.
