A life-long support with many, many memories at Goodison of which I am very proud and quite frankly I am astonished that it isn?t obvious to everyone what this move is all about?.
- This is the cheapest option for the club, they have no money!!
- There is no chance of investment from the Board as they would have done it before now, especially with the stability and genuine improvement that David Moyse has brought us especially with the Sky money this year, potentials of Europe the restrictions on his Budget
- There is no future for Goodison without the support of LCC, of which the Leader has finally spoken too late, I am afraid. If the LCC haven?t noticed, we have been on about development well before they put up the Park End Stand (no Second Tier), bearing in mind only government and councils can get compulsory purchase orders for the local housing prior to development..
- The only chance of investment from the USA, Asia, Third World or who ever, would come after the development of the new ground, not before, as they could never get their money back, or, want to invest knowing they would need 50m minimum for land plus what ever the ground would cost.
Love for Goodison is not enough in this cut-throat big-money world of football. We can all look back to our childhoods, nights in the paddock beating Bayern Munich, Sheedy?s header against United, blood and all... but, in the end, it?s Everton we follow ? no matter where we are. It should be the same for the stadium ? it?s not as though it is a re-franchise half-way across the country (as in the States)...
