This is my first post (I think) in 51 years of supporting the Toffees. It has just taken some 35 minutes to read the last 10 or so posts in this thread, due to crying with laughter!
Enough tears to fill a dock. Which dock depends on depth.
Full circle - anyone know the depth of B M Dock and it's tear capacity?
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

Without wishing to cause an argument , 100 ft to 1500 ft refers to the scale of the plan ,it doesn't say that's the depth .
From what I can discover Huskisson dock has a depth of 27 ft of water and Sandon has 25 ft. I guess BM has a similar figure . The depth could be increased by drawing water from the river and I assume this was one of the uses of the hydraulic tower. These depths only refer to the water and there might be 10 to 15 ft above the water to get the total depth of a dock.
Not sure why we're having this conversation but it is interesting ( to me at least )
My bad misread it
It's the roll I way

Still heard nothing over expansion plans

60,000 to start with expansion to 80,000

Eg,
Stage 1 66000 Side Stand increased (incl half a corner)

Stage 2 72000 Other Side increased  "   "

Stage 3 76000 End Stand                  "   "

Stage 4 80000 Other End Stand         "    "


Don't be fixated on that final figure of 80,000, as above is around 30 rows on a stand, not too big, not too small. Plus you have choice where you expand, and how many stands you end up increasing.

It's clear that it's not going to be Crocky, so you can relax.

Come to think of it, if it's about 30 feet, why fill it? Put in a cantilever and use the space for thing like exec parking and maintenance facilities.

I agree, but would explore the possibility of putting a boxing ring in the middle with the stands continuing down creating a unique boxing/UFC/wwe atmosphere. I know this would need the pitch to be retractable (which has been talked about before) and the cost would be astronomical, but I think these organisations would be knocking on the door constantly wanting our venue.

The possible withdrawal of Durban has sparked interest in the British city of Liverpool.

A spokesperson for the city council said: "Liverpool is interested in hosting the games in 2022. We had heard rumours that Durban might be unable to deliver the Commonwealth Games in 2022 and have already indicated to the government that we are very willing to host them instead

We are special ,we are Everton.

Could we be on the verge of a free stadium a la Man City?

Nah, cos we'll have to have a running track and all that shite. Let's swerve the Commonwealth games stuff and build something for the next 100 years for Everton.
