Liverpool city council have shafted Everton big time.

Comments (3)

Liverpool City Council have effectively shafted Everton Football Club; we're now gonna end up on a shopping complex in no man's land.

The Council are so biased towards the red its untrue. Look how quick there stadium plans were submitted and approved talk, about fast-track. Not to mention the reds are gonna bulldoze and destroy the famous old Stanley Park in the process. Do you think if we submitted identical plans they would have been approved too? I don?t think so. It would have been rejected no doubt by all the red council members.

Then Liverpool decided they wanted to make the stadium 20% bigger guess what Liverpool council bend over backwards and the whole things agreed in 4 weeks. Disgraceful.

It seems upon their last Champions League final win the reds jumped into bed with the city council trying to ride a wave of euphoria. Looks like it worked. Where has the support from the council been to encourage and entice keeping Everton in the city? I just hope when I?m old and grey I don?t look back and find leaving the city led to the downward spiral of my beloved football club.

I don?t think so, Dan. Kenwright and Wyness never wanted to listen to any other offers from the LCC. It?s their way or fucking lump it i?m afraid.

In the past (about 5-7yrs ago) we did seek permission from LCC to build a stadium on Stanley Park. It was as you correctly guessed turn down emphatically !!
Since then the RS have gained permission to put a bigger stadium on the same site that we were refused...What have we done about it ??...FUCK ALL that?s what!!!

Of course you’re right but what is means is that THEIR people are cleverer than OUR people.No doubt it took a few free season tickets and bags of ’corporate’ but that’s life.THEY do it so much better than US and except for a brief period in the sixties THEY always have.
Everton are a BIG club with a SMALL club mentality.Fact!
