They're nearly crying with desperation! Roger having them off on every single point too. Pure gold this.

Kevin from Knotty Ash 31 minutes in is amazing!

"We need ferries so the Welsh can get to TJ Hughes, Roger!"

Caller "But you can't just rename your house roger"
Roger "yes you can"



"It's like renaming your street!"

"No it's not"

"We'll see"

his "maniac laugh" was a bit sinister as well though

Not sure it's anywhere near big enough for a training complex...

well they're already playing in our old stadium, makes sense for them to inherit our current one too

It would be great if the new Stadium reaches the UEFA Elite Stadium criteria. Imagine the red mist if it got used for Europa League or Champions League Finals?

not enough 5 star hotel rooms on Merseyside mate

there needs to be around a thousand if memory serves me correctly, within a 20 mile radius or something?

that was one of the main reasons Kirkby wouldn't have achieved that status

Deffo not 1000 rooms, but yeah - there is an arbitrary number knocking about.

There are 2 5* hotels being considered in the city now.
We build one as part of the complex and if Liverpool waters ends up with another then it could be knocking on the door.

But there's still all kinds of hoops/backhanders that would need to be sorted as well.

it was 500 in 2007 apparently

they also require an airport capable of handling an "additional" 80 charter flights per day which is open 24/7

That's a wind up, no such petition exists on the gov.uk site.

Good job you're here to clear that up

The Archibald Leitch blue criss-cross all the way around

that is my suggestion - not on the inside though, on the outside

it fits well with the industrial surroundings too

the tower is the tower and it's never been part of the ground though.  it is where it is and it's special there, there's no real need to incorporate it into the new ground.

be boss if the pump-house or whatever the old building is on the site could be incorporated into the corner of the ground somehow though, like the church is at Goodison - but not impeding seating availability and entirely controlled by the club, but just so it's something "different" to other new stadiums

200m sounds a very conservative estimation to me

that's not a stadium estimate, it's "the amount the construction company will be paid" estimate.  the value is the value to the company doing the building work, not the value of the project.

Barbour ABI are a middle-man for getting building quotes etc for large projects, judging by their website

how hard would it be to "wrap" the stadium in a sloping ramp that goes over the wall and slopes down the other side in a similar curve that "wraps" around other stuff?

would make quite a cool structure and give plenty of scope to have statues etc on it as the main walkway

or maybe we could make it like Wembley?

fans go in at a higher level than services / teams / employees so that access at road level isn't a problem because fans don't use that entrance to the ground - incorporate a massive ramp like Wembley Way from the south of the site and a smaller one from the north and job's a good 'un (we're billionaires like, so money shouldn't be an issue!)

Agreed, which one of us is going to tell the architect ?

he probably already knows to be honest, I reckon he's pretty smart

but as it has an effect on our matchgoing experience, it's probably alright for us to talk about stuff between ourselves and ponder what might be done on a new Everton stadium

we've got a blank canvas at Bramley Moore Dock, it might not be a regular shape or have straight, open edges, but we've got an opportunity to do something very exciting with a new stadium and it's refreshing to talk about stuff like this in a positive light, rather than point out the problems with our last stadium plan that got beyond the "idea" stage and got into some actual plans on paper.

Interesting this.

Would putting in similar gates, with similar stone etc be a problem?

probably not

"listed" doesn't mean you can't do anything, it just means you have to do it properly and in a way that is sympathetic to the original architecture - and the decision is also based on the council, who thankfully proper love Everton

there seems to be an awful lot of wood being stored on the site at the moment
