Could new Everton stadium prove attractive to docks owner Peel?

, 20 May, 5comments  |  Jump to most recent
Peel Holdings, the owner and developer of the north docks area that is believed to be under consideration by Everton as a site for a new stadium, have not shown much appetite for the inclusion of a sporting arena in their plans for Liverpool Waters.

The Echo ask if they could they be persuaded if a new ground for the Blues would help kickstart development of the area.

Just reading, the Peel Groups chairman's Wikipedia....

John Whittaker, born in Bury, worth £2.5 billion, aged 74. Everything OK....

Then the worse scenario: He's an avid kopite – We won't be moving to the Docklands!!!!

Paul you don't become a Billionaire by being sentimental you make sure your going to make money. If he is a real kopite why did he not make a bid for them when they looking for new owners. Or he could of helped out Bury. Money comes first.

EFC should pull out all the stops to make the dockside stadium happen. We only move grounds every 120-odd years or so.

The KD was a massive missed opportunity that still depresses many - including me. Don't miss out on this one.

We have large funds coming in from the PL and a new owner - and the dockside location is a cash cow if executed correctly.

I'd be quite happy with a multi-purpose stadium - athletics and boxing, MMA and music if they like - as long as it was recognised primarily (99%) as the Home of the Blues. Even dressage events would be fine with me as long as any horse shit could be dumped in the Anfield area (as an improvement project though we'd have to highlight to our loveable neighbours that it's not for consumption).

Project Jennifer is a pain in the butt currently - but already shows that infrastructure is being improved north of the city centre. A dockside location allows for road, rail and boat access - park and ride could be easily facilitated.

I'd prefer a redeveloped GP to Crocky (the thought of which just depresses me as it sidelines the Club even further from the heart of the city).

Let's hope EFC think big.

Nil Satis and all that.

So much for Liverpool/Wirral Waters and it's 30 year completion; Peel have been busy building bridges over the Manchester Ship Canal while the North Liverpool docks area stagnates. If they want to make amends and keep the people and the council happy, building a stadium and it's infrastructure would be a good start - as long as they don't have a say in how long it will take
