The new Dixie Dean Hotel isnt going down too well on GOT. Some are upset that some ex RS were at the opening. So therefore the owners are RS.........

 

 

 

What a disaster, and to make a joke out of that tweet was just plain stupid, along with all the ex reds and celebrity reds going to the opening night.
Trying to offer free drinks now to make up for it. 
The holiday kopites won't be going to stay there and a lot of blues won't either now after this and thinking they are just giving their money to a red

Those half brained kopite tourists will drink, eat and steal from their own in anything remotely or commercially associated with their community destroying club. Blues are generally much more grown up so can't see it packing out like the scumhole over the road

Dont think this will work. The one over the road is full of Kopites who either are tourists or local and dont actually follow the team.
We dont have them types, thankfully.

Liverpool destroy communities? Remind me again which club want to move to BMD and abandon the poverty stricken community who’s local businesses rely on the trade from the 30,000 fans who attend their games?

Whilst i know about, empathise with and understand the issues this piece talks about, I can't help but feel it comes across as a little bit desperate - almost setting the scene for some sort of eventual special funding in the name of the issues.

They are moaning about all the tourists coming to the city yet they want tourists to come to see their new ground at the docks and tell them how much better it is than the redshites stadium.

Dunno what they are crying about. It will be a good hotel. It wouldn't bother me staying there either. Even though I'm a redshites and probably won't be allowed to. 

 

Pity they can't be sensible enough to just enjoy the rich history of both teams having hotels named after club icons on the same road.

Exactly what I was thinking. I'd be far more concerned about the price, quality and comfort of the rooms than any nominal connection to Everton. It's only a hotel, not a place of worship.

Wait until you're forced to order your room service of a Francis Jeffers Burger on a blue phone shaped like Funes Mori's head.

The Dixie Dean Hotel. 

 

Find a real blast from the past in the Dixie Dean Hotel, we have a muddy goalmouth already set-up, dress like Dixie, centre part your Brycreamed hair and shove our resident goalkeeper into the net. But he had control of the ball you say? 

No problem! Just clatter him in from your off-side position and claim the goal.

 

* No more than 60 goals allowed.

The hotel actually looks nice. 

 

The Duncan Ferguson suite is modelled on his cell in Barlinnie prison.

 

The Bramley Moore suite is invisible behind an old exposed wall photoshopped blue. 

 

If you stay in the Commonwealth games suite you can book the room but then phone Joe Anderson asking him for money when you check out. 

 

The Arteta suite has a suitcase full of cash in there somewhere but only Bill Kenwright is ever allowed to stay in there. 

 

Every phone in the hotel has a z cars ringtone. You can request a cuckoo clock for your room if you want an early morning wake up call. 

 

There's no red on the taps in the bathrooms. 

 

They only serve bitter in the bar. Anything else is Kopite behaviour. 

 

You are only allowed to stay there if you live on county road. 

 

They had to take the flags down outside because Tim Cahill kept running out and trying to fight with them. 

 

People with the surnames Thomas, Collina and Clattenberg are not allowed to stay there.

Even the club opened a shop and called it Everton 2. But they're all more grown up, yes siree.

That was funny, in fairness. Not as funny as how grotty it is compared to the Liverpool shop nearby - no doubt it could be bigger if it were not for class and dignity or something - but funny nonetheless.

It was funny that but you could imagine the fume if we'd done it.

The ironic thing is they haven't scored two goals in a derby since 2013

My gf bought me a Liverpool polo shirt. Navy with a red emblem. It's subtle but nice.

 

Can't imagine a BS wearing a red top with blue emblem. Can you?

    • The shitness of old-school football.   Intercontinental Cup tie in Argentina was marked by bloody violence but one Milan’s player ordeal had only just begun     A Milan player lies injured on a stretcher at the Bombonera in Buenos Aires in October 1969. Photograph: Keystone Press/Alamy Stock Photo   On the afternoon of Wednesday 22 October 1969 Ozvaldo Zubeldía, coach of the Estudiantes side that would contest the second leg of the Intercontinental Cup against Milan that evening, crowbarred his squad into room 704 of the Hotel Nogaro in Buenos Aires to deliver his final address before they made the journey to the Bombonera for the game.   Having lost 3-0 in Italy their task was daunting, but not quite impossible. Just before he went inside, he told reporters from the Argentinian magazine El Gráfico what he planned to say. “I think we have a 20% chance of success, but it will get much harder if we lose our heads,” he said. “The important thing is to keep calm, play well, try to win the game even if we cannot recover the aggregate deficit, give a good account of ourselves and don’t get anyone sent off. Play well, go out to win, but without losing control.”   Cramped inside the hotel room his team listened intently. They mulled it over. And then they went to the stadium and played with such violence that three of them ended up in prison.   Not that Zubeldía can plausibly claim innocence. This was a coach whose teams were always prone to violence and acts of premeditated dastardliness. The midfielder Juan Ramón Verón (one of two fathers of future Chelsea players involved in the game, along with the Milan goalkeeper Fabio Cudicini) said the Estudiantes side would be briefed on their rivals’ “habits, their characters, their weaknesses, and even their private lives” so they were best able to goad them into getting themselves sent off. Like many particularly successful teams – think tiki-taka, or the catenaccio pioneered by Milan’s Nereo Rocco – their tactics ended up with their own name: El anti-fútbol. With it they reached four successive Copa Libertadores finals, winning three, and beat Manchester United in the 1968 Intercontinental Cup (“the dirtiest team I’ve played against,” said Paddy Crerand).   “You don’t win the Intercontinental Cup playing anti-fútbol,” Zubeldía insisted. “What happened with Estudientes after 1968 was that we got tired and the players ran out of stamina. There were so many tours and friendlies, the entire squad was injured. That’s why the players, because they did not have the physical strength to play, turned to dirty tricks instead. What they called anti-fútbol was not a strategy, it was necessity.”   Well, perhaps. On that night in October 1969 the atmosphere inside the Bombonera was so febrile that Milan cut short their warm-up because of the level of abuse they were receiving. And then the game, and the violence, started. In the first half Pierino Prati, the Milan striker, was kicked to the ground by Alberto José Poletti, the Estudiantes goalkeeper – on the halfway line, while the home side took a corner – and then headbutted out of the game by Ramon Suárez.   FacebookTwitterPinterest  Police speak to an Estudiantes player. Photograph: Keystone Press/Alamy Stock Photo   Shortly afterwards Rivera, who had been kicked while on the ground by Eduardo Manera, gave Milan a 4-0 aggregate lead, which served to wind up their opponents still further. Estudiantes came back to lead 2-1 on the night, before shortly after half-time Suárez made another telling intervention. “Having insulted Néstor Combin horribly and covered him in spit, and while play continued far away, Suárez savagely hit his opponent on the nose,” wrote La Stampa. Combin crumpled to the turf, blood pouring from his face, and was loaded on to a stretcher. It turned out this was not to be the low point of his evening.   After more savage fouling but no further scoring the game ended and the players returned to their dressing rooms, some throwing a few more punches along the way. Face swollen and balls of cotton wool stuffed up each nostril to stem the bleeding, Combin eventually emerged at 12.30am to board the team coach, but as he made his way across the car park he was surrounded by six unfamiliar people and bundled into an unmarked green car. A fan leapt upon the bonnet to stop it leaving, and was hauled off by police and beaten. Milan thought their night of controversy and confusion was coming to a close; in fact it had only just begun.   FacebookTwitterPinterest  Milan’s Nestor Combin suffered facial injuries after being assaulted by an Estudiantes player. Photograph: Topham Picturepoint/Press Association Images   Combin had been born in Argentina, and in the local media was portrayed as a traitor in the buildup to the game, particularly as he had not done his national service. A magistrate in his home province of Santa Fe had accused him of draft-dodging in 1963, and there had been much speculation that he might be arrested and charged with desertion, a genuine enough concern that many other Argentina-born footballers of the era refused to return to their homeland. Combin, however, had served in the French army and under the terms of a reciprocal agreement between the two nations had no obligations to the land of his birth. This did not dissuade the Buenos Aires police from basically kidnapping him.   In the early hours of Thursday morning Italian journalists toured the city’s police stations in search of the lost player. At 2am he was finally located, but 45 minutes later he was bundled into another car and driven away again, this time to a military prison. At 3.30am Milan officials finally returned to their hotel, where one of them – who had been hit on the head by a baton-wielding policeman at the ground earlier in the evening – collapsed. At 4am Combin was officially charged with draft-dodging, and Milan officials set about assembling evidence to exculpate him – the player had taken the precaution of packing his draft book and a letter from the French consular general in Milan. At 10.30am a tired and groggy Combin was allowed to briefly talk to journalists (“Suárez kept yelling, ‘I’ll break your leg’ and spitting in my face. I truly have no idea why he had it in for me”). At noon, after the intervention of the Argentinian president, Juan Carlos Onganía, he was released and driven to the airport to join his teammates on the flight home.   FacebookTwitterPinterest  Milan players help an injured teammate off the pitch at the Bombonera. Photograph: Keystone Press/Alamy Stock Photo   Onganía had watched the game, which was televised around the world, and spoke later that day about a “lamentable spectacle which breached the most basic sporting ethics”. At his request police issued arrest warrants for Poletti, Suárez and Manera, who turned themselves in that afternoon. All three received 30-day jail sentences and lengthy bans.   The match sealed Argentina’s reputation for dastardliness, to which the 1966 World Cup quarter-final against England and Estudiantes’ two games against United had already contributed. But in truth such violence was a global disease. Brazil’s head coach, João Saldanha, had gone to the first leg in Milan while on a lengthy scouting trip to Europe, where he saw plenty of similar savagery. “Karate is a good sport. I used to do karate and I like it. But it should not be practiced in football boots,” he told the Guardian. “In the matches Romania v Portugal and Yugoslavia v Belgium the kicking started at the navel and got higher and higher … Why play when it is no longer a football match, when the laws have been thrown into the rubbish bin and we have the law of the jungle instead?”   FacebookTwitterPinterest  Milan players, including Combin, with a swollen face, display the trophy after returning from Argentina. Photograph: Topham Picturepoint/Press Association Images   Still, Argentina were particularly adept at this football/karate hybrid – and the worst was yet to come. Some 18 months after the Milan game another Argentinian side, Boca Juniors, played Peru’s Sporting Cristal in the Copa Libertadores. Two minutes from the end a fight broke out that led to a fractured skull, a broken nose, one player beating another with a corner flag, the mother of one of the Peruvians dying of a heart attack as she watched her son getting pummelled on television, 19 red cards and perhaps a feeling back in Milan that, all things considered, maybe they actually got off rather lightly.
    • Although he didn't mention a number of years, similar sentiments have come back to haunt Giggs many times over. Treat them like we've treated every other team outside the top 6 in the last year or more.   Vast complex spreadsheets that could fill a whole pitch have been created by them.
