Joe Anderson doesn’t believe coronavirus will impact Everton Bramley-Moore Dock stadium build

There have been fears that coronavirus will slow down the build of Everton's new stadium on Bramley-Moore dock

 

Mayor Joe Anderson does not believe the outbreak of coronavirus will have any major impact on Everton's hopes of building a new stadium.

The Blues submitted a detailed planning application to construct a new home at Bramley-Moore Dock before Christmas and it was made available to the public last month.

And people have until Friday to leave any comments with Liverpool City Council as part of the authority's public consultation process.

 

Everton are hoping to have a decision from the Council at some point in the summer and Mayor Anderson, speaking on the All Together Now podcast, does not believe the Covid-19 pandemic, or Brexit, will cause problems to the Blues' hopes of a new stadium.

 

“I think it could be [a factor] to the extent that, as all major schemes maybe have, potentially, a risk in the sense of the developer side and the workforce reduced, and it could slow it down, I guess a little bit,” he said.

“But that's one of those 'stick your finger in the wind' type of things and guess. "And that the shovel in the ground isn't going to happen for, at least, a couple of months, we may well be over a period where that's likely to happen.

 

“And of course, a lot of people working in construction have less than people who work indoors It's a difficult one to judge but I would probably say I can't see it having any delay at all, COVID or Brexit.

"Brexit because the decision being made by the football club is based on their finances rather than what happens and I don't think even if Farhad Moshiri takes a hit – because most of his money it tied up in properties – I can't see there being any risk to the project at all through Brexit or Covid-19.”

Chippy Tits has had that Chemical Ali approach to risk from day one; ever since he said it would be complete within 3 years (nearly 4 years ago). I'm just happy it's no longer my money he's twatting about with.

Almost 30 years since actual stadium announced but 3/4 changes of venue and still no spade in the ground.

In fairness, he's right, it won't affect it. In much the same way it won't affect Nessie, the tooth fairy or Candyman.

Nessie would feel at home in BMD.

Are planning officers from the Council and other statutory consultees supposed to go into work, just to get the Unicorn Bowl scrutinised and approved without any delay?

 

Or is Slaphead talking shite again?

 

And, at a time when the world's markets are in full "scream if you want to go faster" chaos mode, what special financial intelligence does Joe possess to give him confidence that Moshiri's half billion funding package  - which DOES exist (stop sniggering at the back) - will somehow survive unscathed?

    • A horrible horrible cunt. And Diouf.
    • Our academy did well when it started out, but it was stifled through the period when Rafa was here when they seemed at odds with each other philosophy and Rafa built a shadow young reserve team and there was little to no cooperation. But since then there's been plenty of wins despite how long it takes for players to come through. Admittedly a lot of those players haven't always started at the club at 8 and they've been parachuted in on their mid teens, but that's part of how it works now.  I would be amazed if it doesn't pay for itself and more. We currently have one of the best right backs in world football (well unless you're Gareth Southgate), along with some fringe players and promising talent. Surely it only gets better now the kids are on the same site as the players.    I don't think you can expect one superstar per generation and a handful of decent talents I think is the most we can expect and if we get more, it is a bonus. 
    • The only way I'd be behind a breakaway league is if it's a kick up the arse to UEFA and the Premier League to get their shit together - e.g. by employing competent referees. Sadly this just looks like a massive cash grab for the bigger clubs.
    • Defo hope we do this. Tough learning ground down there compared to the pampered academy players or some contract bagger.
        Been some decent signings for prem clubs the past couple of seasons and we’ve benefitted brilliantly with relegated players. Without any evidence to back this up, imo, these lads have that bit more hunger to succeed after being overlooked by the bigger clubs academies when they were younger and have been allowed to develop without the pressure of making it at the top clubs.   I don’t feel our academies been that much of a success for how long it’s been running. There doesn’t seem to be that much long term development in getting the right players in the big positions for the first team. From what I’ve seen over the years, it’s just a case of getting 11 players on the pitch in none competitive games and letting them stay doing nothing.
