Agree with this. If they tolerate this stupid behaviour from the blues, one of those clubs might get relegated at their expense.


Spot on, tolerate our blatant cheating so we can stay up at the expense of one your clubs(again). Every time I see another one of their little protests it looks and sounds more deluded than the last.

Everton suffer fresh blow as stadium workers 'walk off site' after latest dispute (msn.com)


Everton suffer fresh blow as stadium workers 'walk off site' after latest dispute


Electricians working on Everton's new Bramley Moore Dock stadium, walked off site on Wednesday, due to 'issues over pay and working overtime', report the Liverpool Echo.

The Merseyside outlet said that electricians working on the site claimed around 150 members of staff departed at 3.30pm with the suggestion a problem had arose over not being paid for working overtime.


Everton plan to move into the new stadium for the start of the 2025/26 season but the build of the ground is currently in the hands of construction company Laing O'Rourke. Speaking under anonymity, one worker detailed the situation.

He said: "We are the most skilled trade on the site, but are paid the least. We want to see a fair uplift in our pay. A substantial number of colleagues walked off the site today.
"We are local, skilled tradesmen. We just want to support our families. We are giving our blood and guts for the stadium site.

"We are walking off the site at 3.30pm as that is when we have worked our legal eight hours. We are doing everything correctly. We are human beings in a skilled job, we want to be paid correctly."

Workers plan to continue to leave the stadium site at the same time on Thursday, and could continue to do so until their issues are resolved. It is said that electricians from three sub-contractors are taking the action.


It is not the first time that controversy has arose around the build with trade union Unite previously claiming that the contstruction firm prevented officers entering the grounds to speak with workers, though Laing O'Rourke denied the claim. Protests were held in 2022 regarding union representation too.

Laing O'Rourke, who say their 'mission is to be the recognised leader for innovation and excellence in the construction industry', won the bid to build the new Everton stadium in 2020. The ground is set to be a short distance form the city centre and will have the capacity for 52,888 supporters.

Work has included preservation of the Grade II listed dock wall and searching for unexploded ordnance from World War 2. Live munitions found in that search were dealt with by army or navy bomb disposal teams.

Mirror Football have contacted Everton FC and Laing O'Rourke for comment.

Some people don’t use terms like “us” or “we” because they can’t stomach pretending to be a blue. 


Ha, I couldn't really care less. I go all in, like Daniel Day-Lewis.
