What impact does Birmingham hosting the commonwealth games have on our stadium

With Birmingham being awarded the commonwealth games, what does this mean for the design of the new stadium ?

I haven't seen any news since and so was wondering if any esteemed ToffeeWeb-ers have heard anything

I recall a contract being signed recently with Peel Holdings for use of the land at Bramley-Moore Dock.

I'm guessing there probably won't be a running track incorporated into the design.

Err with all due respect what does Birmingham holding the games have to do with our stadium?

It's already been stated, some time ago, that Liverpool NOT holding the games will have no effect so it really doesn't matter where they're being held does it?

No connection, no impact.

The fact that we would no longer have to incorporate a running track and was part of the planning permission.

As Dennis says...

Bollocks to a new stadium. Let's keep the old dear with a great team. What Goodison Park was built for.

It will simplify design of the stadium although it was only ever going to be a temporary change. It will save council money on design work and implementation.

Everton are probably going to find the planning application harder to get through although it's still highly likely to go through because the mayor is heavily involved.

Just seen Elstones message to the Commonwealth. Boils down to " all we need is planning permission and the money to build it ". So that's comforting isn't it ?
