Quoted from Meza
Everton stadium on docks. Interesting.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-49109807


Certainly a bit of inspiration to be taken from that. I have no affinity towards Everton at all but the image of that stadium in the dock lands certainly got the hairs on my neck. I just pray that we can finally make this one work, because if we can this could be special.

Bit nippy on a cold January night game.

Like how the architect been instructed to make the seats as close to the pitch as regulations allow, with the steepness of the stands also the absolute maximum regulations allow. The idea being the create a real 'bear pit' of a stadium with intimidating atmosphere.

Something which been lost in a lit of modern stadia. They also looking to create a 'Blue Wave' with 13000 steep seats behind goal unashamedly trying to replicate Borissia Dortmund's 'Yellow Wall'

Safe standing racket seating throughout as well should legislation change to allow safe standing.

If I was an Evertonian I'd be salivating at such design ideas and the kind of thing I hope we aim for (should we ever get there) albeit on a smaller scale.

First the Yellow Wall.

Then the Blue Wave.

Finally the Fish Face


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Going to Spurs v Inter Milan next Sunday so really looking forward to seeing and experiencing the new stadium which also features the Dortmund approach behind one goal. Also fans are encouraged to arrive at least 90 minutes before kick off and stay a couple of hours after the game in the wide variety of bars and restaurants. With the longest bar in Europe, a pint that fills from the bottom on the glass and their own onsite brewery sure makes for an interesting visit.

Then a week later back to the Upper Findus and a touch of reality and the hope that one day we too will have a more modern and welcoming ground to visit. Still can’t beat a town win to make it all seem worthwhile.

To be honest I don't like the Everton design and again the fans seem an after thought. At  a televised   game the fans will not be seen, the FA will love it.

Take plenty of money with you LM56. They have to pay for the building of it somehow.

If we get the same architects that have ffuked up the town in the last few years we will most likely get the seating area at Freemo and the pitch on the docks.

Not living in NE Lincs, but is it the same council that looks after both Grimsby and Cleethorpes town centres, just thinking back to the  pavement in Grimsby that had to be replaced very shortly after being put down, and now Cleethorpes being spruced up, because if it's the same people who are involved with the new stadium we could finish up with a plastic pitch.
