Liverpool Waters for Peel, development director Lindsey Ashworth is optimistic that a deal to have a state-of-the-art stadium at the Northern end of the Liverpool Waters is close to being agreed.
Mr Ashworth told the ECHO: “We're in quite healthy talks with Everton at the moment, so it's not finalised yet. But as Peel and as myself I would love to see a stadium on the waterfront.
“To have this as the anchor at one end of the waterfront, and then you go all the way down towards the ECHO arena... the waterfront would be a visual spectacle.
It is expected that a 'heads-of-terms' agreement will be signed shortly, this agreement is an initial agreement which precedes the signing of a full contract.

How long before it appears under the tag line 'Sky Sources'?

I'm still concerned that any stadium agreement will depend on whether it's part of The Commonwealth Games bid.

I think there were only four 9s after the decimal point, if you are referring to Raiola.

Peel are keen (and they do not jump the gun with statements). We are keen. The Council are keen.
RS adding 500 seats to comply with access rules. Seems a reason to be cheerful.

If Rom goes cash flow looking good.

Too many false dawns so hard to get exited until something is signed.

The Moshiri spin doctors are in full affect again!

Having said that, I can take this kind of good news all day long. Let's wipe the grins off the RedShites faces once and for all. C'mon Farhhad, show us the plans and give us the virtual tour. COYB

We have just gone through the last 7/8 days with the belief that it was a 99.9999% certainty Lukaku was going to sign, then got kicked in the nuts.

What's the bad news?

Peel should be letting us have this for a song. I'd suggest "half a sixpence".
It does stink down there at times. We will take massive stick from the visiting fans and I can't see too many corporates enjoying the unique "atmosphere".
24 Posted 15/03/2017 at 19:52:36
Lighten up and believe we have never had it so good.

Got to keep believing though.

My old mate. We are going to the Docks.

Charlie, when I saw sceptic I thought of septic tank. Must be all this talk of sewage

As for the construction. The landlevel at the riverside in Liverpool is very low. Climate change is pushing water levels higher. What safeguards are going to be in place for this? Either by Everton and its contractors, or more especially, the city authorities?

If it has to be the docks then the site next to the Waterloo Dock complex is the best for me. It is currently a large flat area occupied by a "drive-in movie". It is nearer to the city centre and a wider range of transport links.
I have said previously that my preference in the more northerly area would be the playing fields bounded by Stanley, Lambeth and Vauxhall Roads. This is, I believe, owned by the city and the only bit of land where the council could do more than offer fair words.
We could swap them the land on which Goodison stands for new pitches for the amateur game, a fitting use for Goodison I would argue. Additionally, the building of a stadium in that location would do far more to regenerate Kirkdale than a stadium on the docks, enhancing Peel's portfolio, ever would.
I've said before that the transport links are significantly better too.

We are on the verge of an iconic new stadium and the sea level rises and drowns us all. This is what it means to be a bluenose!

44 Posted 16/03/2017 at 21:51:34
Don't worry about rising water levels- EFC has been drifting for years.

Somebody needs to tell Lukaku that is how ambitious Everton are. We are determined to survive the forthcoming Global disaster. We will still be playing footy when Anfield is hosting water-polo watched by 237 people perched on the top of their new carbuncle of a stand.
We've got it covered.

On another note, someone tweeted earlier that we've already paid (or agreed a fee) for the land. I can't remember who it was though.

Enjoyed the humour!! :)
