I read in the Echo yesterday that Liverpool's lease for the Stanley Park site expires in September.
Does anyone know the FACTS about the lease and whether we would be able to take a lease of the site once LFC's lease expires?
I know we can't afford to pay for the stadium BUT if we paid for the lease, then that would add a lot to the value of the club. If Kenwright really wanted to sell us, then he could do so more easily unless he gets the cash register eyes.
Again more openness needed from the Club.

B) What would be the point anyway, other than to upset the neighbours?
C) Is this generally public information? (I don't claim to know one way or another)

Does that count as Redeveloping GP?

Still no official word on the shelved Park End development, Park Place or whatever it was supposed to be called. I guess the KEIOC guys were on the money with the freehold / lease issues. The whole club from top to bottom is looking very tired and neglected,; very sorry state of affairs.

They've thrown the kitchen sink, financially speaking, at the RS a shit or bust go at CL money - fair play - but if it falls over thats more tourist pounds flitting to the Mancs and Chels and they're down a shed load.
The attraction of halving costs on a new ground must be compelling to the yanks.
Aspiration has collapsed here and there's even signs of reality across the park - they're not quite so cocky these days.
I reckon someone mooting a 50k stadium with provision for expansion as a groundshare will bring both parties to the table.

Whenever the Shite play at home, you cannot get a hotel room anywhere in the town center, either budget or top notch. The bars are all full... so too the restaurants. Taxi drivers are busy, so too the pubs, cafes, vendors of all description. Town is buzzing and money is being spent.
Easyjet is booming so is Speke Airport, the trains, coaches, taxis etc etc ? all having a field day. For the past 40 years, LFC has brought an annual influx of foreign travellers both supporting the Reds and watching their own teams in Europe. More money spinners for the local economy. Only today I passed the Kop and it was buzzing with people. Packed car park, Coaches everywhere and the local shops full.
5 minutes later at Goodison and it's dead as graveyard!? What extra revenue would we generate if we had a new ground on Stanley Park? Fuck all ?that's what.
It's business ? pure and simple... and we as a club in a business sense are a JOKE... Why should LCC help us again after BK's shenanigans over Kings Dock? Even now, Bill's skullduggery back then is killing us. Would you trust him again? ? because I wouldn't.
The City council, like it or not, know Liverpool FC helps this city survive and will do whatever it takes to keep the Golden Goose alive... and you can take that to the bank.

Too late, we've been beaten to the signature as usual.
Kenwright on SSN now - "We were close to doing something pretty special, but the lad wanted to go somewhere else, and you can't tell them".
16 Posted 03/08/2011 at 20:56:52
My eldest lad ? both of my lads have gone over to the dark side (show mercy on their souls) ? tells me that they have set up yet another campaign group and this one states that 'the council are not giving them the help they deserve'. They have no shame, do they?
17 Posted 03/08/2011 at 21:56:19
Oh and they have not had to pay off a manager this summer.

I confess, when 'honest' Bill Kenwright told us to "watch this space", I didn't realise he meant the space in the Park End wall.

What's all this about no screens at the Villarreal game? The club is so piss poorly run that they can't finish renovations before the ONLY pre-season home game.
And why so few home pre-season games? Surely that's a money spinner!

Moyesey told Bill Tim Howard could organise a wall in no time.
36 Posted 05/08/2011 at 10:16:12
Apparently Newcastle and Tottenham were in for them.

I also heard from a reliable source that moyes has been given the green light by Kenwright to sign the highly talented young chinese prospect from the K-League named No-Foo-Kin-Wan.

Initial reports that Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright had bricks removed to reflect the "new openness at Goodison Park" or as a misguided attempt to create more unobstructed views of the pitch at the cash-strapped club have proved unfounded.
A source at Merseyside Police confirmed CCTV footage led to an arrest of an Everton player apparently practicing freekicks in Walton Lane.
"I obviously cannot reveal the identity of the player," the source said, "but he is an Everton midfielder, and he is Spanish. A wall can only take so much abuse," our source admitted ruefully.

You musy have gone completely mad mate.
Blame the manager for buying shite like Billy and Fellaini with the money that the Board HAS made available of the past few years.
Rubbish and fuck all to look forward to AGAIN.
