There's a sort of old fashioned charm about this where the football team moves into the heart of the city instead of moving out. It's only really because the city of Liverpool is so behind in its development (in my opinion). It's made huge strides the last 10 years but not enough that it would make this move an impossibility.
The City Centre has made huge strides. Everywhere else has not. Classic Doughnut effect.
Meanwhile everywhere else (particularly in North Liverpool) has been ignored. During evenings you have to wait 1 hour for a bus and many areas dont have train links and high amounts of people on free schools meals, yet the council talks about what a modern, thriving city we are. If you want student accommodation or to pay top whack to live in a pad in town, sure. Otherwise, no.
But basically, our fans have gone all corporate. Lets move away from our home, support a majority shareholder who makes fools out of all of us (Net Spend + his finances) and will charge us even more for the benefit all because we listen to Everton Business Matters too much and want Everton to be a business more than a football team.
Everton belongs in Walton/Everton area, not Bramley Dock. End of story.
This stadium move is like an emotional spasm. Wanting too much, too quick. Its completely hollow. It actually hurts me nobody seems to give a shit about Goodison or has uttered a word, maybe apart from @TheRam
about it being a tough ask to move from there.
Chelsea are rebuilding Stamford Bridge, Spurs are essentially moving/remodelling to next door, why cant we?
Nobody has answered why we cannot do this or have not investigated it, nobody.
