WHAT DO YOU THINK ?
HERES MY TWO CENTS WORTH
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
Why not make it a 90,000 all - seater? If we had a 75-80,000 all seater planned and Everton has a 50,000 all-seater planned then why not use a blend of the 2? Milan has been doing it for decades..
i think it is a very good idea in theory...and seems like the most economical way of obtaining a world class stadium.......HOWEVER as a United fan i could think of nothing worse than sharing a stadium with City!! a stadium is part of a football club's identity and something to be proud of.
NOT something to share with one of your BIGGEST rivals!!
To be fair it is quite a hard choice:
a mediocre stadium with a lot of history, pride and identity,
OR, an excellent stadium which is as much the home of your biggest rivals as it is yours

Firstly, I wouldnt think any player in the world would describe Anfield as a mediocre stadium and if there was anyway of substantially increasing the capacity then I am sure they would. It would be hard to recreate a similar atmosphere in a characterless and shared stadia.
Well Inter & AC Milan are both the 2 biggest and have a rich history between them and they share the same stadium and seem to manage..
I think it's a pride issue to have your own stadium..
Yes as a LFC fan I'd prefer us to have our own stadium. I can accept that unless funds aren't pooled together neither stadium may get built..
If last season is living in the past then we will scrap that. Yes we are behind you at the moment and yes we are out of the CL. Your side is not good enough to win either but you will drag it out a bit longer then we did.
that is UR opinion.....but we still have 5 or 6 players who were in the team of the season for the last 2 or 3 seasons!!! Not to mention the prem player of the year.
This is when Utd switch on!!!
Liverpool start strongly while utd seem to start on standby mode.
We find ourselves quite far above you after the start though!!!
so who knows wot the gap will be by the end now that Liverpool seem to have gone into standby mode and Utd are just about to switch on.
Thats what we did last year, but we were the strongest team over the last part of the season and with the CL over surely we will start to make headway in the prem, we wont win it but I cant see the points per match average staying the same.
would there be two seperate trophy rooms and museums etc..? ours be soo much bigger lol
what about the changing rooms? the away changing room doesnt have sound proofing (so the away team can hear the roar of the crowd) and no air con and other little perks. It's a psychological thing. So would this continue? The reason this popped into my mind is that when we play everton and they are at home, we would be in the away dressing room missing the perks.
Also, what about the KOP? The plan was to build a HUGE single tier KOP but would everton still approve of that as it is a liverpool idea not an everton idea?
If this were to go ahead i can see plenty of potential niggly bits that would slow it down as one team wouldn't want to give into the other?
Would it be equal funding? I sure as hell hope it would be.
If we are going to share, stuff your 80,000 seaters, we should go for 100,000 at least and have the greatest club stadium in the world! well behind the maracana that is.
F*ck that! Why should we help them out, and also what are we gonna have - purple seats?
Seriously though, have you seen the San Siro pitch by this time of year? Virtually unplayable. Also we don't want to embarrass our poor relation neighbours, half the stadium would be empty when they play wouldn't it?

That is a good point about the seats actually, you couldnt have any teams name or kit sponsor or anything on them. They would have to be totally neutral. Dont like the idea of that.
Also what about the commercial side of things. We would basically be helping everton get better sponsorship deals as we are wider supported club and we obviously earn more in commercial revenue so we should we let them have a piece of our action?
Much as I have hated the idea of sharing with 'them' :-) - I think the time is right to do something like this. Finances will dictate, not traditions.

it is quite spectacular bill i'll give you that. Doesnt really answer my commercial based questions though.
I did read a little on wikipedia though and it says that they have 4 dressing rooms so both teams would presumably have their own dressing room rather than one being in the "away" dressing room when they are the away team.
Whatever the aversions to going into partnership - the overiding issue is if 'we' don't do something soon the revenue that MU and Arsenal are generating - per game - is about a MILLION quid every single home game - that in it self would pay for a large proportion of the players wage bill (weekly - I wish :-)
Work it out - even at £35 quid a ticket - the fact that MU get 30,000 PER GAME more than we get - thats £35 X 30,000 = £1,050,000
The 'big-wigs' at LFC and EFC should get their arses into gear.
The commercial opportunities reach further than footy - concerts etc....

Sharing stadium with Everton? No bloody way! The only reason why AC and Inter are sharing stadium is because there is absolutely no space in Milan! They cannot pull down any buildings in town as everything is under state protection.
The problem we have is not space, it is cash, but that will sort itself out soon I hope (though what's happening to Dubai is worrying). Don't rush into anything that we will regret.
