Among the issues he covers is the stadium where he says:
Farhad brought up the Goodison atmosphere, he was blown away, and he couldn't believe it.
He said: ‘I'm sat there, in a fabulous seat, right on top of the pitch, the noise, the atmosphere and every time I walk up the steps the atmosphere hits me'.
That's great because we're fans and we think ‘It's a miserable place sometimes' but he's comparing it to what he knows, which is the library that is the Emirates.
So when I asked him about the stadium, understanding it was still early doors for location and all of that, he talked very cautiously about various sites but his eyes seemed to light up when we talked about the potential for one on the banks of the Royal Blue Mersey.
He wants to transport the atmosphere we currently enjoy at Goodison and the proximity to the pitch, to the new stadium.
Moshiri's design brief to the architect, you can imagine, would be: ‘I want the most atmospheric stadium around and I want it to look good'.
He'll still lean on the costs and ensure we get value for what we get but I'm sure that's what he wants.”

A stadium on the docks built with the seating able to induce an intimidating atmosphere - brilliant.
The "Moshpit"? Maybe not.
