Finch Farm

Comments (5)

So things are looking up. Marching on in Europe and a good spell in the league. Chelsea on Sunday should be a good benchmark of where we are at in the grand scheme of things. Be typically competitive and make the opposition work for everything and we are on the right path. Roll over and look fatigued and perhaps we're being over optimistic.

We have definitely come along way since the days of Messrs Smith and Knox and in truth as long as we keep stability at the club I can only see things going in the same direction: up!

One thing I think will have a really positive effect at the club is the new training facility at Finch Farm and in particular having the Academy at the same site will only benefit us in the long run. Having the kids train with the senior squad will help them develop and bring them on. It's great that we've got so many players on the fringes of the full squad now and there are a few promising talents to look out for Kissock, Spencer, Jutkiewicz (already named in full team) and I think this will now just get better.

One thing, though, have I missed something or has the move away from Bellefield been very low key. I haven't seen too much (if any) publicity and there is only a handful of shots I can find on the net. Does anyone have any good links to have a look at the place?

Furthermore, are the club going to have an official opening (or again is that something I've missed) and invite the fans in to have a look around ? I think that would be a good bit of PR, something that Big Bill doesn't usually pass up!!! Anyway, any info on the site would be appreciated.

Looking forward to Sunday, a point would be very nice thank you very much. Whatever happens, it's exciting times at Everton again and let's hope things keep getting better. Moyes has apparently got some cash come January so let's hope for some acquisitions that will strengthen our already good squad.

Development of the site took 150 weeks including pitch construction and landscaping. It was a massive undertaking, with 69,000 ceramic tiles, 68,000 concrete blocks, 4376 carpet tiles, 550 tins of paint, 265 tonnes of steel and 1400 cubic metres of concrete used on a building that boasts 6,410 square-metres of space for the Academy and first team to utilise. ? What more could you possibly need to know???

.......and just think.....our new Stadium may soon be only a ten minute run down the M57! How many ceramic tiles will be incorporated in that I wonder?

Oh God! Have I just reignited the Stadium debate!?

Info that has been passed my way has said that Scott Spencer is nowhere near the level we expected when we bought him and is never likely to reach it

Apparently a loan move to Yeovil is on the cards

Interesting information but somewhat misplaced don’t you think?

I live near Finch Farm in Halewood Village.
Finch Lane is a short cut from the village to the A562 to the Runcorn Bridge and Knowsley Expressway next to the RSPCA building.
I passed there last night on the way to watch the match at a friends. It was all lit up at 7pm and looked very impressive with the pitches all floodlit, I dont know who was there at that time of night with a game on, they must of paid for Finch Lane to be sorted as well as now has a pavement and street lights which it never had before.
