Sandhills is literally 15 mins away, don't need a new station. Ill be walking there, take about 30 mins from Bootle, go along Derby road and have a bevy at the new bars that will open
I live just off Knowsley Road and just for my own curiosity I walked up to BMD, took me 20 minutes.
I should add the caveat that I'm an old, fat Grandpappy.
In regards to the Independent article, its not Everton saying that it could generate £1 Billion, its the CBRE and looking at the Goodison Legacy, if what the club has already done on Spellow Lane is anything to go by, the club will leave a very good legacy behind for the people of the area.
I was gutted when we missed out on Kings Dock, still pains me when I go past, however everything I have seen in the past few days gives me even more pride in our great club.
