I assume because he got really attached to the club as well as the project, and now he’s been dropped. I don’t blame him at all. 
although it’s not Everton that made the decision, still think we should’ve done something 

It surprises me that you're fine with him acting like a child about it, rather than staying professional.

Where did I say I’m fine with it? I understand his disappointment, that’s about all I’ve said

Saying you don't blame him made it seem like you thought it was ok.

It’s disappointing to see him say those things but I completely understand his disappointment. Clearer?

We don’t know if the club did or didn’t put a case forward for him to be involved with the main contractor, from what I gather he did tender to do the works but was unsuccessful. 
Like you and  many others I would like to think he was given every opportunity to be awarded the contract, but he just couldn’t get within his competitors price, I’m sure he was preferred contractor, but in business it’s the bottom line figure that wins not sentiment. 
I’ve experienced many disappointments like this, and you soon realise not to take it personally, because you just beat yourself up, my philosophy is water off a ducks back, and onto the next project.

I’ve got a feeling that the UNESCO part of the new contractors took priority so as not to risk planning permission

Possibly mate sounds plausible, I hope he can get over the disappointment, it would be great to see him there for the first game, after all it’s still his vision and design.

This. 
Im disappointed in it because he’s been so integral. I can’t speak for everyone but it’s Dan who made me feel it will happen more than anyone else. The way he used Goodison as his inspiration felt right. I can see why he wanted to see the project through, he talked about this being a career defining project and he feels like it’s been taken away. 
I really hope he is there on the opening day. I hope he gets chance to visit the site during construction and see his vision come to life. 
My main hope is to actually see the build completed and I hope it stays to the standard Dan wanted.
