Ladies and gentlemen, a warm welcome to Bramley-Moore Docks. Please ensure you are all back on board for prompt departure at 4:45pm on Saturday- this is to show respect to the weekly gathering on the docks of Local tribal leaders.

 

Safe viewing of this event will be available once we are 500 metres off shore.

 

You won't want to miss it!

Fair play to them, they couldn't have picked a location that's as much as a pain in the arse to build a massive concrete stadium. It's almost as if they knew it would cause loads of hurdles and delays.

It still boggles my mind as to where the money is coming from. They've got the tightest revenue to wage bill ratio in the league. And mosh is taking out loans here and there, plus they've spent a fortune on shite players and received not much back in sales recently.

 

Surely this stadium is just going to plunge them into massive debt.

And hopefully into obscurity because the hate has gone too far recently.

They're going to pump nearly half a million cubic metres of sand into the basin?! Not sure that's going to give a solid foundation for any building but then again, Im not a structural engineer.

 

So they've been 'given' £45m by the council towards the build? When did we have a vote on that and they have the cheeks to call us the 'furlough' club? I make that getting on for £70m+ of taxpayer money they've had: this £45m, £19m corona virus business interuption scheme, £6m for Finch Farm.

 

They've supposedly secured £350m private equity funding. Is that Usmanov's money or someone else? Even so, it's only £400m so they either believe the stadium can be built for £350m or they've got more money to find.

 

In any event, who's going to own this stadium based on that funding because everton fc dont seem to have put a penny on the table. Hope the PL are watching this 'funding' very closely.

Crushing debt for your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. This is the best thing in life.

 

That and relegation.

The £45m includes £15m to preserve heritage parts of the site and surrounding areas (which I do not have problem with) and £30m towards their preparatory costs (which I very much do). This comes from the Mersey Region authority.

 

I'm not sure if the £400m includes that £45m but if it does, I'm assuming the remainder or the full £400m is coming out of Moshiri's pockets.

 

They then have a further £350m loan. And that's assuming the build and costs don't escalate. I'll be interested to see some real work begin and not just the crowd-pleasing stuff.

Yeah, but, come on now. Building costs never escalate during a project. Never.

The last part of that Royal Blue Mersey article is just nonsense.

1.3 billion boost to local economy?

1.4 million visitors to the city?

Create 10s thousands jobs?

 

have they just estimated the fans who will attend the games in next 10 years and called them visitors.

The jobs,  tens of thousands?

What does the 1.3 billion consist of.

This was costed out about 6 years ago, due brexit and covid raw materials are probably about 50 to 60% more expensive now, on top of that there will be delay after delay as covid is not going away anytime soon. 

 

If they build it they will either fold or Usmanov will have to step out of the shadows as even with success City cannot fill their stadium in most games.

 

Apart from having a new stadium I dont see any upsides from the blue perspective. But then again I've never looked the the blue delusion goggles that they all seem to wear.

Surely they can fill the dock in with kopite heads seeing as all ours are supposed to have fallen off?

What's in it for Usmanov? What can he get out of a wildly unsuccessful, debt ridden football club in the north west of England?

Mersey region authority? Is that effectively the metro mayor's office?

1.3bn boost to economy, on a 350m build of which 45m comes out of the local economy? And a large portion will be steel, no doubt delivered from uncle uzzie steel co. They must include every penny they take in match day revenue over what they take today for decades.

I heard something about the Council extending the terms onsome other loan paying out more in the long run? What for I don’t know but fits these morons in charge perfectly. But then they did give Liverpool a hundred and twelvety billion trillion zillion for the stand.
