There is no doubt that a new stadium is required, but why dust off the original plans that supporters did not want 9 years ago. In 1997 the club produced a handout to supporters with a planned move to a new site with 60000 seats, 12000 car park spaces, motorway access and our ‘own railway station’. Now that financial backing is available, it was just a matter of time when the move went ahead, but is this the only site option available?. As a direct comparison, Coventry’s Arena stadium was built near motorway access and has a huge Tesco store on site. There is no direct public transport (only local minibus pickups) and a railway line that runs next to the stadium but with no platform (refused by Transport Authority). If we are going to move, lets hope they get this right. The traditionalist in me wants to stay, but at what cost? Lets look onwards and upwards with bigger attendances and improved facilities. Who will gain the most from this move to Knowsley? The Everton Stadium Council Owned (TESCO). Location…Location…Location.

All this talk seems to be getting me a bit too carried away at times but then i come back down to earth with a bump and realise that Billy liar is still our chairman and the possibility of the proposed move is a very dodgy one at most .

Call me an anti-pessimist but i've have seen too many false dawns and broken promises whilst BK has been at the top of the tree and the negative feelings in me are telling me to prepare myself for the eventual balls up of this whole ground move aswell .

I noticed whilst reading tele-text that BK mentioned at the end of the interview that '' staying at Goodison may well , in the end be the best option for Everton FC '' .

He just had to get that in at the end didn't he , in other words '' if this ground move does ( very likely ) go t!ts up then i never made any promises and have thought all along that its best to stay at Goodison '' .

Well fook that BK , i don't care how you do it but we need and need desperatly to move grounds because if you think Goodison just now looks like a sh!t heap its gonna look a million times worse when the RS have their brand spanking new 60,000 seater velodrome parked just over the road .

BOOOOOOO, resign I say, we've been there and done that. I would rather they played on Stanley Park, or even the Vernon Sangster car park.

of course they will. Ticket prices go up and up every year, I don't bother going to matches anymore because the jump from £18 to £36 is too much for me.

A junior Tranmere Rovers season ticket was less than a single Everton adult ticket a few years back (when they were in division one).

i found this great invention its called dodgy tv and most pubs have t least one channel now so chances are on a sturday afternoon i can watch the game enjoying a pint on the cheap it is already to expensive for me now but would still pay to go (once i've paid the last of the wedding off)

but when we move to the new stadium then you will have to look at a min of £50 a game before you've had a pint which i just cant afford every other week

I really hope that we do move to the new stadium at the new proposed site.

The current location is awful. Unfortunately, the area is now run down, with many boarded up residential and business premises. There is poor parking facilities locally. The ground does not really cater for executive parties or the disabled. For example, a tent in the car park is not really executive, plus we make those less fortunate people amongst us sit practically pitch side, in all th elements with no protection. Surely the new stadium would help generate more funds with better executive facilities, and maybe an indoor style dugout along one or both sides of the pitch for the disabled faithful.

I would also like underground parking, similar to that designed in with the new Paradise Street Project precinct.

Anyway, just my ramblings!

:)

Those grounds are amazing though, and unlike liverpool, we have a clean sheet to start from

a new stadium isnt a choice -- its a necessity.

the old one cannot be re-developed as it is surrounded by terraced housing. a modern, large capacity stadium is the cornerstone of the clubs future prosperity.

i know its the panto season but unless a fairy godmother shows up and offers to subsidise the club virtually forever we have no choice but to move.

i doubt if ANY club has the cash. there is a thing called credit tho.

and thats the real issue. can it be financed?
