Bramley Moore Dock the proposed site for Everton's new stadium, proposed so not decided?
Ian Pollitt is saying "This site is the site we're talking to Everton FC about at the moment, and all I can really say at the moment is obviously discussions are ongoing" so still nothing decided? WTF, what happened to "you will have it in 3 years" said no way and got slated here, board dragging there feet again.

1.) 13 Oct 2017 19:07:01
I hear u stig but for me the team is paramount and stadium second. as a package the club needs to be attractive. so I get the importance of the stadium but right now it seems far less important to me.

2.) 14 Oct 2017 09:11:26
Yes Stig you are right the team is not the only problem, Ken&co must go.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 15:51:17
Think we have to separate the on-field and infrastructure agendas and deal with both in their own merits.
Right manager, right players, right coaching and player development is vital as we need to be challenging in top flight football and have a presence in European competitions.
Financing and building a stadium (and all that goes with it) is equally as important and the two, whilst complimentary, should be treated on their own merits.
Man City wouldn't be where they are now if they were still playing at Maine Rd.
Arsenal's off field planning has put them as one of the strongest bases for future progression in World football. (take out of that Wenger is past his sell by date)
Any decisions bases on the stadium has to look 5 to 10 years in the future.
On field crisis has to be dealt with now and that is a different mind set than running the business side of the club.

Young guns, Man City were handed the golden goose in respect to their ground. It was Manchester City Council who built it and it's official name is "The Stadium of Manchester". Man City were given naming rights on a leased basis hence the name Etihad. They only lease the ground and pay around Β£3m per year to do so. I'm sure you will agree that's not a bad deal for any premiership side.

5.) 15 Oct 2017 17:05:35
grumpy. is that not similar to the ground deal we are hoping to get.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 18:06:21
No Dixie,

City did not pay anything for building it and own none of it. Even when they raised the seating capacity the council paid for most of it.
My understanding of our deal is that we will be paying a significant amount and will actually own part/ all of the stadium with Liverpool city council contributing to the cost, we will own the naming rights and any events held there will have to go through EFC and not the council, the reverse is true of Man City.

7.) 15 Oct 2017 18:24:00
You're right Grumpy, but it is still a 21st Century stadium fit for purpose and a draw for investment . Goodison Park isn't.
We need a new stadium, I appreciate deals have to be right and I think Moshiri is from a financing and business background that makes that the right deal.
If Liverpool Council pays any part as long as it doesn't effect the football side of the club then bring it on.
Gone are the days of clubs solely owning their home.
Our goal should be to have the best British stadium, eclipsing The Emirates, The Etihad, the new Spurs ground and even Wembley.

{Ed002's Note - I think you perhaps misunderstand what is happening with the stadium and the proposal.}

8.) 15 Oct 2017 19:19:09
I probably do Ed002,

It's an age thing, these days the things I don't misunderstand are often things I have made up.

Just been reading about Man Who after Ross Barkley, if its true I would be more upset about Ross going than Lukaku, who we all love but let's be honest, Luk has only used us to get first team football and move on, Barkley gets a lot of stick like Cleverley, don't know why? I do think we could lose a lot of our stars, think RM has lost the Dressing room.

1.) 03 Apr 2016 11:08:52
If we can't pay the same wages as manutd we will always loose are best players and win nothing ever again that's the way football has gone apart from Leicester this season which is just a blip it will be the same teams every year that win trophies think it's time to leave the football behind for me can't be arsed any more new chairman or not it won't change anything.

2.) 03 Apr 2016 11:34:21
Take it with a pinch of salt it's that time of year where the press try to unsettle all our players it's like they have an agenda the difference this year is they can't use our finances as an a excuse it shows they don't like us never have never will.
I'm sure they did it in 09 before we played utd in the semi final and Chelsea in the final anything to make us lose. I ignore the lot of them to the point where I don't read the papers and will not click on any link that says our players are leaving.

3.) 03 Apr 2016 11:38:41
Hmm let me think. Last year no money didn't sell Stones. This year loads of money and still don't have to sell. In fact we should be putting bids in for their players. Rachford and DeGea would do nicely to start with.

4.) 03 Apr 2016 11:39:01
I don't know if RM has lost dressing room or not stig. he's lost the fans, or at least the majority of us. With respect to Ross, he too has a long contract with us. I'm sure 4yrs left, but unlike mirrallas, lukaku and stones he's not made single statement regarding a move. I cannot see Everton selling all of the starlets tbh. I think worse case is Rom and stones, but I don't see anything else. Ross does get too much flack in my opinion (due to his lackb of consistency) . which is why I can't see Man U going for him. they need someone with immediate and consistent impact imo and that's not Ross. yet. At the same time I think all fans who go the game need to give the lad a break. he is still maturing and getting better each season. and will do next season. A lot don't like the fact he does not challenge or defend enough but the lad almost had no career after some terrible injuries. that has to play on his mind. However, his ability to drive past players, pick a pass and score a few are attributes we will need next season if we lose rom. I wouldn't part with Ross at any cost this season. and I don't think we will. especially as rom is most likely going.

5.) 03 Apr 2016 11:45:16
Stig relax I don't think we will sell Barkley especially if stones and Rom leave club wouldn't allow it plus last summer Barkley was supposed to be of to man city that didn't happen don't believe what u read in the daily star not saying utd won't be interested in him they where interested in Baines but they didn't get him as for Bobby looseing the dressing room u only hear this when team under performing I am not a Bobby fan and I want him out of everton but it's time the players take a look at themselves and actually start performing to there potential stig u should go to Sunday mirror website and read the article on Rom it's a good read.

6.) 03 Apr 2016 11:57:28
Fully agree Skylark I been criticised for not renewing my season ticket but if all waited it might cost more but we may have seen some action.
As for the money it is obscene beyond words and going to get a lot worse .
players getting Β£100 of thousands a week its sick when surgeons save lives.
Brown shoes out and I will be back.

7.) 03 Apr 2016 12:18:40
Thanks for the replays mates, hope you are all right, and let's get a big win today, the players and us need it, after last week.

8.) 03 Apr 2016 13:51:06
Just read that article duke and imo its spot on. As I said the other day agents are only happy when players move its just pure greed mate.

9.) 03 Apr 2016 19:13:25
I would say with confidence Ross will stay for sure. ( He has the same handcuff we have as fans on us) The dressing room was lost a couple of months back. I fear giving responsibility of mega bucks to a board that won't sack Martinez, who has stumped the progression of its largest assets. Purely because he's that ex girlfriend you woost out of dumping because of her feelings even when your dick had already left the he relationship. I'm not sure we have the minerals to be keeping top talent anyway . Never thought we would buy a 28 mill striker or allow the only manager in our history to have that luxury destroy us. Wigan won an fa cup so ****ing what the fa cup is a blue peter badge nothing more. I don't blame Roberto one bit if I was getting cheques for hatchet work I'd be cashing them . I watched Niasse today for the five means he was allowed. His confidence is completely destroyed his manager should not have talked to the press about him until he was allowed a start. Hypocritical really considering the same gent has shown no progression himself he moon walks for **** sake. I stiff love this fat ugly Minger of a club but I'm dying a bit inside still romancing her.

Davy Moyes back at Goodison in the Sky Box aaaaaaaaaaaaa.

1.) 06 Jan 2016 19:04:30

2.) 07 Jan 2016 02:06:13
Hope Moyes is there for the second leg, he certainly has an indian sign over City.



06 Jan 2016 17:55:24
Belgian winger Kevin Mirallas will not be leaving Everton, according to manager Roberto MartΓ­nez. (Source: talkSPORT)

now that is good news, let's hope he plays tonight?

Talk Sport apologise for Joey Barton's false claim?
Why would Barton lie? He has nothing to gain or lose by it.

1.) 22 Sep 2017 13:02:30
wouldn't say he lied he was repeating something he heard.

2.) 22 Sep 2017 19:10:26
What did he say? Missed it.

3.) 24 Sep 2017 10:31:54
he said he was told that the reason we didn't sign a striker was because Bill Kenwright pulled the plug at the last minute.



20 Sep 2017 17:42:33
Is Everton vs Sunderland on LIVE anywhere mates.

1.) 20 Sep 2017 19:02:40
Check Mamahd. in Truly sorry if i shouldn't recommend a link eds.

2.) 20 Sep 2017 19:04:16
I've searched all the tv listings and can't find it anywhere stig, unless you can find a pub with a dodgy satellite box.
It's going to be radio merseyside with Ronny Goodlass and a few beers for me I'm afraid.

3.) 20 Sep 2017 19:34:47
No even on a dodgy satellite box mate aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

4.) 20 Sep 2017 23:36:24
Haven't seen anything about it being on Facebook or Youtube mate, might find a stream online but I doubt it.



17 Sep 2017 13:00:47
For the first time in my life I am not looking forward to the game today, what about you, I don't mined if we don't get a pt but just have a go?

1.) 17 Sep 2017 13:10:19
My sentiments exactly Stig.

2.) 17 Sep 2017 13:18:15
Sadly Stig it's not the first time for me, but I know what you mean.
Would take Ghana smashing into Lukaku, that would cheer me up a bit.

3.) 17 Sep 2017 14:39:24
Well will be missing the game on TV, can't remember the last one I missed. Not really bothered to be honest, going to see my grandson at the University of Connecticut which should be more fun. Will watch the game when I return so hopefully the team will make us proud regardless of the result.

Good one stig. Them emails can be very dangerous.



14 Sep 2017 20:03:19
I know it's early in the season but I'm seriously concerned about our fate. there's no passion, desire, urgency or direction.
