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?

Whatever is listed needs to be preserved. However, the whole Liverpool waterfront is a mixture of historic and modern and it works. Any new stadium at BM needs to be a statement, not just for the club but also the city.

I like the idea that something of the old Goodison should be represented at the new stadium too. Goodison was the superior stadium in this city for many, many years. Double the amount of FA Cup semi-finals and a World Cup Semi Final shows just how much Goodison was regarded right up until the late 1980's when compared to Anfield. Anfield had the Kop but the other three sides were very dull single deck stands in the 70's and 80's, much like our current Park End, until they redeveloped. It will be sad to see Goodison go and some reference to it at the new stadium would be a nice touch.

The Archibald Leitch blue criss-cross all the way around and some incorporation of the tower would be great.

"someone" said we didn't deserve a bigger stand. The stand build itself was entirely funded by the grants from the football league following the move to all-seater stadiums.

Everton could have put money towards a bigger stand but the fans didn't deserve it apparently

Seem to remember that was Sir Philip Carter who said that?
