Why haven't they started it yet/announced funding or stated when they will be on site?. All I've heard since it was approved was "starting on site in a matter of weeks". That was in February. They first announced they were moving in 2016. 

 

Has Heysel stopped them building it?

Aren't they now claiming they've had to get planning permission for a pump house or something? There's some mad excuse and whatever it is is listed.

Anyone would think they specifically chose to build it in a Victorian dock that needed filling in with a load of buildings around it with heritage concerns just ro drag it out for as long as possible.

If it wasn't for Liverpool, no one outside of the UK would have a fucking clue who Everton are.

Ancelotti is just boosting his pension these days. Perhaps getting his son’s foot in the door at a comfortable mid-table club like Everton.

Ha. Just realised that Tosun has a league winner’s medal with Besiktas. Does that make him the most highly decorated Everton player in the current squad?

It's mental isn't it. Surely the 1st question any of them should have is "why didn't you apply for planning permission at the same time as the stadium?".

 

I often did question how they'd fund it - in fact I was certain they couldn't, but the money for players and the season on season losses are being funded to an extent you have to assume the money is there.

This is the interesting thing from them both from here. As you say, he's boosting his pension pot and if a good job comes up, I'm sure he'll go and if not, he'll happily retire when he's done at Everton.

 

But if ancelotti doesn't work out, where do they go from here? They've hired all the types of manager and will never get a better pedigree than ancelotti. They're really no better a team now than they were under Moyes, Ronnie the red and Bobby brown shoes (well obviously aside from winning the league in September). They've spent a fortune on players (wages or fees) for all of their managers since moshiri took over, yet they're just the same team and if you look at what they need, there's loads of work to do. It could be this season is just dodgy for the no crowd thing (someone said to me the other day their home form since crowds were stopped in December is worse than ours, I don't know if that's true), but can you just imagine the shit they'd have got -especially little arms - with the shite they've served up this season.

Hamez won all those league titles and Champions Leagues while sitting on the Real Madrid and Bayern benches.

I’d forgotten about Rodriguez (easy to do he goes missing that often). They are having a conversation amongst themselves about fucking him off in the summer. Galactico. I’ve also noticed that their newfound Colombian fan base has disappeared...

Normal procedure is to run listed consent applications in parallel with planning. So they've either fucked up by overlooking this consent or they are just dragging it out while they get funding.

Thing is I wish they would build it. It'll look good on the waterfront and it'll have no effect as to what happens on the pitch. It could bankrupt them, or at least get them fully intertwined with the Uzbeki criminal.

Almost like they never existed in the first place. Bogotá blues.

They thought they’d get a free ground like city did when it looked like we had a chance of getting the commonwealth games and backed themselves into a corner by making a big fanfare over it.

 

Instead, we had absolutely zero chance of getting the games and they were the ones left holding the bag. 

Lad I know works for LOR and is one of the main men on the build. He was telling me yesterday  that this is defo going ahead but the costs are already in excess of £750m for it.


All that money spent and it’ll still be 10,000 seats smaller than our place.

So how much do they have to come up with themselves?

That’s the £750 million question. If that super league would have came off they’d have been putting a few extra metres of cladding on the timber yard and staying there forever

I hope it goes ahead and they go bust then it ends up like a bigger version of the echo arena. 

 

More than likely it will end up like Valencia's new stadium or one of the hotels on the Costa Del Sol that get half built.

£750m never happening. Who and why would anyone pay it, loan it?

They could crowd fund it. If every Everton fan in the world put in £10 they would reach .. er .. £300,000. Oh!

    • The opposite of "totally fucking Mexico", yeah?
    • Saturday evening sees the Reds travel to West London to take on Brentford. It has been 32 years since the two teams met in a competitive fixture which was in the sixth round of the FA Cup and Liverpool won 4-0. And you have to go all the way back to 1947 for the last league fixture which adds a special sense of occasion to this encounter.     Thomas Frank’s side have looked anything but overawed by making the big step up to the Premier League  so far and their fans are bound to be in fine voice at Brentford Community stadium.   Dave Lane from @Beesotted Brentford gave TLW an insight into their unerring belief and how a Liverpool academy graduate has turned into a Bees fan favourite.   It is always good talking to fans of clubs who haven’t been in the top flight for a long period of time and learning about their journey. Can you talk a little bit about the ups and downs of your journey as a Brentford fan and what the moment felt like when you were finally promoted to the top flight after 74 years and that first Premier League game against Arsenal?   Getting promoted at Wembley was one of the most euphoric and surreal moments in out Brentford supporting lives… after so many failed play-off attempts there was a part of us all that never believed we’d witness it. That’s all behind us now, but it will never be forgotten. The build up to the game against Arsenal was amazing too, maybe more of an event than a match, but to be back in the stadium with our mates, and surrounded my likeminded Bees, was special… so was the atmosphere and result. It has given us belief and we know we aren’t out of our depth at this level.     Can you tell our readers about Thomas Frank. To a outsider he looks like a typical new age manager with clear methods and Football philosophy as well as a figure who can connect to fans and players alike How is he viewed by the Bees fanbase?   Thomas Frank is the perfect fit for Brentford and such a nice guy too. He’s certainly not an old school football manager and his relationship with the players shows how much they respect him, the perfect man for a young and promising set of pros, he keeps them grounded and focussed, as well as believing in them when things aren’t always going to plan. Frank has had his doubters, even as recently as last season, and he’s only ever a couple of defeats away from that element to start sharpening the knives again. Frank is the club’s most successful post war manager and the vast majority of supporters hope he’s at Brentford for many years to come.   Quite often new sides to the Premier League find the step up in standard quite daunting and the defence is extremely overworked. However for the Bees it has been remarkably resolute with three clean sheets from five games. Who are the key players behind that impressive statistic?   You’re right, so far we have been solid and well marshalled at the back, Pontus Jansson and Kristoffer Ajer in particular have been immense. Sergi Canos, although not a ‘natural’ right-back has risen to the challenge, and Rico Henry is, in my view, England standard at left-back. David Raya in goal has ironed out the more erratic edge to his play and is a proper sweeper-keeper with excellent distribution and reactions.     One of the longer-term members of the Brentford squad is a former Liverpool academy graduate in Sergi Canos. How important has he been to your progress over the years?   Sergi is another perfect fit at Brentford and as previously mentioned has stepped up this season and relished his chance in the top flight. After his initial loan period from Liverpool, he chose to move to Norwich, but he was soon back in West London where he has cemented a place as a modern club legend. He spent a long time out injured with a knee ligament injury and there were question marks as to whether he’d fully recover his speed, but his versatility and infectious enthusiasm are pivotal in the system we play. He loves Brentford as much as Brentford loves him.   We know that London is a crowded market for Premier League football teams. Is there one particular team that Brentford fans would love to beat or are they all in the enemy camp?   This season’s all about establishing our place at the top table and we will take our wins anywhere and against anyone, however, I’d be a liar if I didn’t want us to beat Chelsea as West London bragging rights over them would be immense. Without Fulham and QPR in the same division, though, a win is a win this campaign at least.     We touched on the clash against the Gunners at the beginning, how much are the fans looking forward to taking on one of Europe’s elite teams on Saturday evening?   Liverpool coming to Brentford is one of the jewels of the fixture list plain and simple. The players will want to prove themselves and the fans will want to savour every moment. Liverpool fans will be welcome in all our pubs and it should be a great afternoon on and off the pitch. Can’t wait!   Is there one Liverpool player that you admire the most?   Liverpool are a class act, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, van Dijk, Diogo Jota, are all world class, and there’s a player in every position that will push us to the limit. But that’s why we are here, to test ourselves against the best. You’ll have plenty to contend with too.   How do you think your manager will set up the team for the big clash and who is the Brentford player that needs to lead from the front to claim a result?    Thomas Frank won’t change things at all in my view, we play our 3/5 at the back football the same whoever the opposition and we will go toe to toe, which may not work out in our favour after 90 minutes, but that’s our mindset. We will create big chances, but we have to take them when they come our way.   Have you got a score prediction?   My head says 3-1 Liverpool, my heart says 2-1 Brentford. I'll go with my heart every time! COYB.

    • Yep, to the point that my 9 year old has watched it with her mum and thinks it’s hilarious too, and when I learned that I thought “yeah, actually there’s nothing that needs to be censored for her to enjoy it”
