id name teh 4 stands after legends, with a statue over looking an enterance on each.

Dean

Labone

Ball

?????(hopefully not Hickson)

 

 

Sounds like your criteria for being a legend is that have to die.

 

Dixie Dean for sure.

Labone (probably).

Ball (also probably) but where does that leave Kendall and Harvey? Kendall will end up being a bigger Everton legend than all but Dixie Dean (I think).

Then theres Alex Young, Fred Pickering, Ray Wilson, Bob Latchford (ok he didnt win any medals with us but he was a true HERO in the 70's. The name Latchford and Eveton go hand in hand. Then theres a multitude of 80's players Neville Southall, Trevor Steven, Kevin Ratcliffe, Graeme Sharp among many others.

 

So who deserves it?

 

I'd like to see a Dixie Dean stand (has a ring to it but would probably end up being the William Ralph Dean stand).

 

ALSO would love to see a Goodison STAND.

Maybe a ST. Domingo's Stand.

 

AND I would really like to see St. Ruperts Tower incorpoated into the design somewhere. (perhaps one of the corners) but would be too expensive I suppose.

i dont think they have to die to become a legend, but its not often people get recognition when they are still alive.

 

id love the idea of having ruperts tower design as one of the corners, but like you said it would be expensive.

 

maybe a holy trinity stand to get kendall and harvey in there too :huh:

How could you have a Gwladys Street end that's not on Gwladys Street?

Didn't think about that

 

could always be called the Fruit Stand, Drinks Stand The Dairy Product Stand and the Meat Stand :( <_<

 

Cant stand the fact were bumming up to Tesco to get a cheap stadium, thats how I see it anyway.

 

KEIOC :)

Am terrified of ending up wif a corporately Dumb name like Chang Hut, Tesco Bell, or a finer example the Emirates, Reebok & JJb Stadium's .

 

Wonder if the aproach to the stadium by road, Will be along Bill Kenwright way ?

This new ground more often than not simply gets called "The Kirkby Stadium" a bit boring I suppose but it will probably stick if it keeps getting referred as that.

Similarly like the Emirates is also referred to as Ashburton Grove (although hardly not anymore) but unlike the cockneys, I think Scousers would be more likely to stick to a 'proper' name rather than a sponsers name.

 

So at the moment its the Kirby Stadium, if it gets underway then perhaps it will start getting referred to as something else.

As someone else mentioned, imagine naming the loop stadium, just so easy. Scottie Rd Stadium, Tunnel or Mersey End. But my guess is "The Loop" would stick.

I'd like our new home end to be called the "Goodison End" - at least journalists and commentators would be able to bring in the word Goodison into all future match reports and commentaries and the like - like "Everton are attacking their favourite end - the Goodison End' and when we're attacking the other way we'll "have the Goodison faithful behind us". Its little things like that that matters to me rather than the location.

 

Our new ground will no doubt have a sponsors name as thats the way things are moving now but there's no reason why we can't have an underlying name like 'New Goodison' or something like that, Arsenal play at Ashburton Grove but due to their deal with Emirates will play at the 'Emirates Stadium' for a number of years.

i dont mean to be rude, but if we leave Goodison then we leave Goodison. surely a new ground somewhere else should be named approprietly?

if its off cherryfield drive it wouldnt suprise me if they call it cherryfield park

Tesco did say they would play no part in the stadium name. But with the shambles of a deal going on at the moment (deal of the century my arse) i could see the "Tesco Velodrome" being apt.

 

 

The Seating Rows have now been changed to Isle's

...you know something we don't Jay?

 

ve·lo·drome

noun--a sports arena equipped with a banked track for cycling.

 

Don't know about anyone else but I find the thought of Hibbo in lycra shorts quite disturbing :unsure: .

Is it childish of me to want Asda and Development Securities to win status as preffered developer as it means EFC won't go to Kirkby?

 

Dec 7 2007

 

by David Bartlett, Liverpool Daily Post

 

A BATTLE to regenerate Kirkby town centre started yesterday when Asda announced its interest in an alternative plan to that of Tesco and Everton FC.

The supermarket giant’s interest is part of an alternative to the proposed Knowsley council-backed £400m scheme in which Everton FC would move to the town.

The American-owned company has signed an exclusivity deal with Development Securities, which owns part of Kirkby town centre.

Development Securities has already shown residents details of its own £200m plan.[

Sources close to the Everton/Tesco plan said Asda and Development Securities was being seen as an attempt to muddy the waters ahead of Tesco’s planning application – which is due in the next few days.

Development Securities said it wants to build a new “anchor” Asda food store in the heart of the town centre to help revitalise shops around St Chad’s Parade.

It would then turn Cherryfield Drive into a second shopping centre with a health clinic, library, and possibly bars and restaurants.

 

 

Yes thats good, no mention of a Stadium.

Read somewhere that Asda said they were "neutral" on the stadium. Translates as "Yes you can build a stadium if you like but we won't be giving you any money," which rules it out completely I'd have thought.

ASDA can't win the battle because Knowsley Council will be the ones making the decision and we know what project they're interwined with, I don't expect Gordon Brown will want to upset his friend Sir Terry when it gets referred to the govt too.
