Renaming The Main Stand

Recommended Posts

i heard a couple of evertonians the otha day tlkn about remaning the main stand "the Brian Labone stand". I think this would be a good idea and a fitting tribute to a man who have his all to our club.

 

What do u all think?

If they are thinking of renaming the Main Stand they need to perform some much needed improvments (and I don't mean a lick of paint and a few cheap flags on the outside) first as in its current state it's an embarrassment to the Great Man's name.

Last time I was in there (I usually go in the Park End) they still had wooden seats, is this still the case?

maybe someone should write to the board and ask. im sure kenwright wouldnt object. his tribute in the sun to labby was extremely moving. might be worth a go. but its probably true that if they were going to they would hold off until we move, IF we ever do.

Renaming the stand is a fantastic idea, but statues should be reserved for those who have truly shone, no slur against Brian intended, but William was a one off and a statue is just too special. Sorry if I have trodden on toes here, but fairs fair.
