    in principle a very good idea everton have plans drawn up they also have funding for a 50,000 seater stadium so how about this we take those plans add to the funding and turn it into an 80,000 seater stadium to rival old trafford and the nou camp i see it as the way forward and a good all round idea what is your thoughts

    • haha i dont know mate, maybe someone's digging a pond in their garden

    • nice try, but why would we steal it ? we've got nowhere to dig. . . .

    • to be fair, I deffo dont want it.

      however, I think it sounds more and more like it.

      • you see duncan a lot of people are looking at it as a groundshare and are not looking at the wider picture for example rock concerts,athletics,rugby and various other events which both clubs would take revenue from imagine the artists who would be falling over themselves to perform in liverpool in a massive venue that rivals wembley

        i think stick the stadium in stanley park sell the naming rights to the ground and get the damn thing built ASAP

    • LFC powers that be.. have said publicily they're not interested in any scheme of a super stadium with Everton...

      So that puts paid to that rumour.. stone cold dead..

      Call the Yanks bluff see just how serious they are about bringing success back to the club.

    • I understand the arguments for getting this off the ground may make sense financially, but not sure it’s such a good idea long term.

      First off, while I think we'd fill the stadium most of the time, would Everton? I'm not trying to be funny here, but are there really 80,000 plus people who want to see Everton play even bottom table teams and pay premium ticket prices?

      Second who's going to own the stadium? If we owned it and Everton paid us rent I might think it’s not a bad idea, but I'm sure Everton would not agree. The point of building a new stadium is that it allows a club to have a stable long term income stream. If we share, at best we have half a stable long term income.

      This is not just about colours on the seats, but who has the right to name the stadium, plaster advertising hoardings on the inside and outside of the stadium, and the big earner, who has the right to sell leases on luxury boxes, and manage conference and other hospitality facilities within the stadium.

      So without touching the emotional arguments, which are compelling unto themselves, while sharing might get a stadium build faster, it will deliver to neither club the real benefits of long term financial stability and independence, if we go in together, and since that is the real point of building new, why bother unless we can get what we need.

      • it doesn,t work that way dee every game is rated for price for example derby games and teams in the top 5 are usually category A games then yo have cat B games say 6 th in the league to 13th in league then cat C which is the rest of the league 14th to 20th and cat A are premium prices cat B are slightly cheaper and cat C the cheapest

    • No we don't have adidas on them - they're plain red plastic seats with the seat number stencilled underneath.

    • the trophy room thing worried me to but all it would take is liverpools down one side of as corridor and evertons on the other side with a split red and blue carpet from one end til the other along with pictures of both teams greatest players and managers

      as for the seating all white with clubs crests in red and blue

    • bill, at anfield we have adidas on the seats dont we, if we had a shared stadium we wouldn't be able to as both teams have different kit providers.

      I am not saying for that reason we shouldn't do it, i am just querying as to what people think would happen. So far bill i am glad to say that you have answered everything i have asked with very satisfactory answers and hopefully that will continue if i have anymore.

      As i have said, if it is to happen then the Allianz arena is definetly something we should be looking to take inspiration from.

    • I think the LFC stadium was meant to be 60k with the potential to increase to 80k. I did prefer those original plans with the 100k though!
