Docks is the opportunity Blues can't miss again

, 24 May, 10comments  |  Jump to most recent
The Echo's Greg O'Keeffe argues that after letting the Kings Dock fall through their fingers over a decade ago, if there's a chance of securing a stadium on Liverpool's north docks, it's one Everton should grab with both hands.

Agree with Greg totally, but to be fair we're a long way from there even being an opportunity to be let slip or otherwise.

Average percentage of night games played by Everton per season - 13.2%*

Average percentage of pictures of spanking new Everton ground showing a night game - 100%

Average percentage of pictures of spanking new Everton ground showing a night game taking place on bommy night - 50%

* 13.2% figure from the institute of completely made-up statistics.

Think you'll find it's actually 82.4% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Average chance of actually getting a new stadium anywhere any time while Kenwright is 'Still in charge'? I for one think it's very slim and I won't hold my breath.

I would love this to happen soooo much. Make it iconic. Make it big. Make it impossible to miss. Everybody visiting the city should get our stadium shoved down their throats. Make it the Beatles-package, after visiting the Beatles museum, let the yellow submarine take them to the stadium (idea stolen from another thread).

I know, I know, with our luck we will end up in a mediocre stadium at the other site or just stay in Goodison without developing it.

Rectangular. Check !
Retains echoes of the iconic Leitch design. Check !
View to St. Rupert's Tower. Check !

Generic, plastic, corrugated steel and breezeblock ?
Kiss my fat arse !

A tower at each corner ?
ERM, WHU's "Lego Castles" ?

The RS could have all the expansions they want, we'd have the romantic, picturesque stadium, a vision that would stay in peoples minds a lot longer than their hemmed in stadium on steroids.

To complete the picture, a tall hotel on the waters edge resembling Prince Rupert's Tower (Hotel 1878) with rotating restaurant at the top.

Idea. If Japan can build a giant floating airport... you see where I'm going with this.

You could even set sail on tour and still play at home!

Robert, amazing stadium designs aren't they. What I've always wanted Everton to go for... close to the pitch and steep/high with a loads of tiers. In an ideal world, we'd have that actual design with a closing roof.

It must be a coincidence but recently I have been wondering if Moshiri would go for something ultra modern – a never before seen... Saying that, he probably won't.
