This looks like an out for High Morals FC. How could they possibly proceed with something that damages the City?  They would rather stagnate or go backwards than do that. They will rip up the plans and start on sometime that will have UNESCO hanging at their door to apply special status too. A stadium built of flower that re-pollenate the whole of Merseyside that turns into homeless accommodation Monday to Friday.

Either that or they will just blame Heysel.

Haven't gone that deep into it Baz, but obviously it's pissing on someones chips at UNESCO and this is the straw that broke the camels back.

Having had a boozer not far from there I can confirm it's badly in need of something. 

we've had that other fucking corrupt imbecile running the city for years UNESCO have been pissed off for ages. The city should have worked with UNESCO years ago to make this palatable.

It's the inconsistency of their decisions though. London can build massive skyscrapers next to the tower of London and there's a few mad buildings near old buildings in Paris. 

 

Lime street was knocked down with an old cinema just left to rot and they build some utter shite brown cladding on the site with an Aldi there. It's only a few steps away from St George's Hall and the first thing that people see when they walk out of the train station. You could also say that about St John's. 

 

Some company wanted to do a zip wire from the Beacon to the gardens in St George's Hall but the only people to oppose it was the general public. Also Lawrence Kenwright put a shit extension on top of one of the nicest buildings in the city and UNESCO and English Heritage were nowhere to be seen.

 

They are opposing Everton building on a derelict dock that hasn't been touched for years. The area round there has been neglected for decades. It's nowhere near the sight line of the Pier Head. No other city in this country seems to have every single development opposed like in Liverpool. It can be a good thing but it's held the city back for a long time which is probably why outside investment is always in short supply.

Spot on. Look at the sky line behind the houses of parliament - that London eye monstrosity, but it appears that's alright. High rise after high rise going up in the city and london bridge areas as a backdrop to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. I think they've done a decent job with some of the high rises in the City, they are unusual and interesting. But there's absolutely no doubt they're at odds with the Tower of London. Yet this stadium is about 2 fucking miles from the 3 graces in an area that is a complete fucking dump. nobody seemed arsed when we built a fucking carpark and the Malmaison between the liver building and waterloo warehouse. in fact those shit apartments on the waterloo dock site blocking the view of the warehouse. yet all of a sudden there's a stadium about 2 miles away in waste land, which on the face of it looks to be a good design and good quality, yet all of a sudden it's an issue? It's fucking nonsense and screams of the right palms not being crossed or something else at play.

It does baffle me why London never seems to have any heritage concerns when you have so many historical sites within a mile of each other. 

 

Not sure what heritage concerns that Manchester or Leeds have in their city centre but Manchester's rate of development has been ridiculous the last ten years while Liverpool's has basically flatlined. 

 

Liverpool isn't York, Bath or Chester, it's a big northern city that has been starved of development for decades.

Depends where about in London, City of London is literally a law unto its self, in fact they are probably the cunts in the Simpsons song

I'm looking forward to the dock tours on the same industrial wastelands in 30 years time with my kids and grandkids all wearing virtual reality headsets watching VR ships and VR people bringing the place to life like it's 1920.

 

Everton just build the fucking thing.

 

UNESCO and all Nimby's just fuck off.

No argument offered m'lud.

Would be funny if it all came back to him though.

Spoken like a county road cutter.

 

Tipp blue

I go to liverpool because Everton are there end of, I'll go to BMD when the new stadium is up and running.

I never heard of BMD before Everton went about buying it, I didn't know that the waterfront was a world heritage site before Everton went about planning.

In short everything I know and care about in Liverpool city revolves around Everton, and honestly couldn't care less what else happens in the city.

Does he know anything, is he right? I thought they only signed a lease for the dock not 'bought it'!

Not uncommon but I was listening to some Metallica other day.

 

This track came on. I’ve never realise before, but these lyrics sum The Ev up to a tee…

The City might be a law unto itself, but it shouldn't alter UNESCO's decision making. It's almost like money has talked and UNESCO are happy London is a.living breathing city whereas on our side we're supposed to live in a museum.

    • “Klopp without glasses is like… I don’t have a comparison but give me time and I’ll come up with one.”   I’ll give you a comparison here Dave, it’s like Tommy Cooper without his fez. It’s a disaster is what it is. He’d better sort that shit out once the season arrives.
    • I think they do. In the 90s and a bit later we would spend nearly as much as united in transfer fees but we would buy 4 or 5 average players like we were trying to build a team every window or at least thats how it felt thinking back. United just saw a weak spot in the team or a player moved on and they went an bought what they believed to be the best replacement for big money. Once you've built the top side its harder to improve but when that top player comes along who would improve you,  you buy him. We have loads of quiet transfer windows for me that should mean for examples sake if say Halaand is on the market we should be able to buy him without all the fans turning into bean counters and complete panic about the financial repercussions. We are Liverpool 19 times league champions, 6 times European cup winners we should be able to act like a Billy big bollocks in the market now and then because we don't go big or even medium most windows, the books dont need to be balanced at the end of every window, we can carry debt or profit into the next ones depending on the teams needs.   In my opinion we need a midfielder and possibly a forward if that means this window we spend more than we've earnt so be it, the next summer window we will undoubtedly sell one of our forwards and a few of our midfielders, the most important thing is the time in-between the windows the team needs to be competing for titles, our weaknesses need to be addressed so we can remain on top, everyone has different opinions on our weaknesses mine is way too many injury prone midfielders with the likes of Kieta and Ox who when given chances the rare times they ate fit don't take them.   FSG said the redbird investment meant we are were we should be if there was no pandemic it reset the losses, now the deal is out of mind we hear of the devastating effect of corona.    I'm not even arsed, the window is still open, if it ends and we've just signed konate and some kids I'd say they haven't done enough this window but I'll get over it as said a million times Klopp is our superstar and FSGs golden Goose.
    • For the Palace game i think we only had about 10k capacity. my Dad didn't have a smartphone so was told to pick up a paper ticket from the ticket office. We were told what time to go in the ground with the NFC passes and i think the window was between 1 hour and 15 mins before KO so that suited me. we went to the office to pick up his ticket and there was a massive spiraling queue accumulating outside for people whose NFC passes weren't working-scanning issues and downloading. The queue wasn't moving particular fast so a few must have missed KO. The pre season friendlies should help them get their act together but i wouldn't take any risks on getting to the ground late for the first few league games next season. Somewhere like the kemlyn is full of old men so i'd give yourself even more time if sitting there
    • I think what we see with FSG is something that is particular to FSG rather than being a widespread feature of modern football. They are what Tom Wolfe labelled 'Masters of the Universe', thinking that everything they do is brilliance and they don't consult the little people on anything. Other owners are happy to bob along hoping something will turn up rather than actively changing things. FSG, on the other hand, are not ones for leaving well enough alone. The ESL is the classic example of this. They think the financial basis of football is nuts and something must be done about it. The ESL is something, therefore we have to do it. In fairness, you can add expanding Anfield and hiring Jurgen Klopp to your list. And before anyone says they were no-brainers, staying at Anfield was not the consensus choice among the fanbase, many of whom were seduced by the shiny new thing - gee, where can we see that at play now? - and Klopp could have had his choice of clubs, yet it was FSG who landed him.
    • Lee Clark is OK by me. When I was still in high school he lived near some mates of mine and always used to come out and play football with us if he saw us playing.
