That Chelsea stadium is hideous. Thought it was a joke at first.

Nothing we don't already know, just more coverage.

This is the meeting tonight...

Could come under either the 10 streets stuff or the commonwealth games bit.

No Joe Anderson on the attendance list?

The Mayor said: “Liverpool Council will have first take on season tickets, on the players themselves, on the naming rights, on the ownership of the stadium and of the television rights"

This doesn't sound that great or is it just me, appears, despite getting a billionaire owner were still not funding it ourselves and won't get all of the benefits?
Don't get me wrong I'm made up but I want my cake to have the cherry I  the top, or has it and I'm missing something?

That's only if we can't afford the annual repayments which are around £4m-£4.5m.

For example, if we were to get relegated and couldn't afford the annual fee then they have access to our other revenue streams to pay it off. It's security for the lender.

I don't really get how this will work, is it normal to be paying back £4.4m for 40 years when we actually won't own it in that period? What are Spurs and Chelsea doing?

If we then have to fund £300m on top of that to actually build it, which I assume will be through sponsorship/naming rights and more borrowing, won't our annual repayments be really high? Isn't that risky? Will the increased revenue though extra capacity, probable higher ticket prices and corporate boxes be enough to cover this quite large annual outgoing?

Or am I misunderstanding how it will work? (I probably am)

I dreamt last night that they had already started knocking Goodison down, weird one that one.

I've barely followed the progress with BMD so far, I think deep down I thought it would never happen after all the false alarms over the years. Can't wait until later to see the designs, really excited.
