The club announced earlier this month plans to upgrade the outside of the stadium with new cladding on the stands and the new images offer a glimpse at how the exterior of the Grand Old Lady will look.
The corners of the stands will have royal blue cladding with a prominent Everton crest and new decoration on the Park End will include the name "Goodison" in letters above the top of the stand.
In addition, a banner system will adorn the front of the Main Stand overlooking Goodison Road and a new tower construction is planned for the corner of the Park End.

I really like the impression that this creates.
"The Grand Old Lady", really is just about my favourite place on earth. But ! We need to improve ALL of the crappy views, the wood needs to go, there needs to be something a bit more impressive than bare breezeblock and bare plaster and bare cables and bare pipework in ALL the concourses beneath the stands.
If we stay at completely refitted "Grand Old Lady", so it looks the same to the cameras from pitchside, but is in ALL respects a football ground fit to serve for another century ahead, then I'll be happy.
If we build a brand new "God's Acre" in one of the north docks (Stanley, Sandon, Trafalgar ? All sound good to me) then it really must be in each and every respect a fucking monster, a bearpit, a theatre fit for the true Toff's of English football !
No embarrasing "lego castles" like at West Hambarassments old gaff.
So no to a "Rupert Tower" in each corner.

Looks a bit naff when the rest of league all have leather sports car bucket seats with there badge embroided!

We'll not be left behind and the future of Everton Football Club is and will always be the greatest thing on earth (in sporting terms, I love my wife and children!!)
Let's match the Koeman appointment with some world class additions to the squad.

Also it's called Rain Screen which is harder than it looks. A lot of build up work involved.
15 Posted 16/06/2016 at 21:17:32
To me, the design looks a bit like they've sent a couple of work experience lads over to the club shop for two of those boxes we sell commemorative Everton golf tees in, and stood them up either side of the Park End, before taking a forced perspective shot!

I have been an Evertonian since September 2002 when Joseph Yobo joined the club after the World Cup.I have been enjoying the club despite the trophyless seasons all these years.
I hope the club will win something this coming season.

Welcome to the Blue Revolution, my friend! We are one!
23 Posted 16/06/2016 at 22:49:59
You'll be welcomed with open arms like all our fellow toffees from abroad.
As for the refurbishment, anything is welcome to tart the place up a bit. Finally feels like stuff is getting done with the new man upstairs.
24 Posted 16/06/2016 at 22:50:06
Olalekan#17 welcome and yes you have to experience Goodison at least once , it is truely a bearpit when it's rocking. !!!
25 Posted 16/06/2016 at 22:53:03
Welcome Olalean, great to hear from you and Yobo was a very good player for EFC.
26 Posted 16/06/2016 at 22:54:49
Well exactly, I mean imagine trying to get Joachim Low stains out of suede
As for the facelift pics, I remember a few years ago meeting Tracey Emin at an exhibition of her work at the Tate.
I asked her if she was happy with the response to her work and she suddenly jutted out her chin, leant forward, put her fist on her forehead and said "Niiiiiice to see you, to see you..wih-wih-wih-wih-wih-wih...niiiiiiiice!!"
I've never trusted an artist's impression since.
I'll get me coat.

You make a good point.
And wih-wih-wih-wih what do points maaaake? (waves arm encouraging TWers to shout 'prizes!')
Actually under normal circumstances I'd be inclined to agree with you, however in my defence, it is summer and bad-gag leeway should (imo) be given at this time of year.
Plus it was surely no less stimulating than the 8,065 posts we've had so far informing us "I'd like us to go for..." followed by the names of every player not currently on our books.
32 Posted 16/06/2016 at 23:47:31
(Something I look forward to shouting at Mr Niasse this season).
33 Posted 16/06/2016 at 23:56:44
For the images that seem to be going on the sides of the stands, would the wrap around with the big screen that was placed around St Johns opposite Lime Street be anything like whats proposed?
35 Posted 17/06/2016 at 00:33:28
Its simply the best. Brilliant. : )

That certainly would be a worry
(looking like an 11 year-old corpse)
41 Posted 17/06/2016 at 09:07:39
Rather than cheap looking partial cladding i'd like to see a hot water supply in the top balcony toilets. Are other parts of the ground also lacking hot water?
It is the 21st century after all !

About time, even though we are only hopefully there for a few more years until the waterfront dream becomes a reality. Every RS fan I speak to is hoping we don't get permission for a new stadium in town. They know they will be instantly downgraded if we manage to pull it off. In fact, a few of the bitter bastards have said they will organise a protest group to stop it happening!
46 Posted 17/06/2016 at 15:17:51
What can I say ..... It's perfect !!
Took me about 25 mins from Albert Dock , it's an enormous piece of land certainly big enough for a 50,000+ stadium and right on the Mersey !
If Moshiri can work his magic with Peel Holding then we will have one of the most iconic stadiums in the country !!
They can keep the outer wall in place as it has many entrances , I can just imagine our crest and Everton FC - Clarence Dock entrance illuminated in royal blue !! It will be a truely outstanding location .
48 Posted 17/06/2016 at 19:59:32
Has anyone attended a US major league sports venue? It is a different world where they actually value their customers.
I don't suppose BK has ever been in the Upper Bullens but Mr Moshiri sort it out!
49 Posted 17/06/2016 at 20:32:55
They were part of a delegation which came to UK recently, and asked to be taken to Liverpool, because it has the oldest Chinese community in Europe. While here, they expressed an interest in LFC, and were shown around Chinatown by George Osborne, "... and the docks area WHERE THEY WOULD LIKE TO BUILD A STADIUM...'
Now, remember, Peel Holdings, who own all the land, said that their Mersey Waters project was backed by Chinese investors. Put the two stories together, and I think we might have a problem!
If Peel have two stadium-building parties, for the same land, the price will go through the roof!
The saving grace may be, that the article concluded with the words; Fenway Sports are not thought to be keen to sell!
50 Posted 17/06/2016 at 21:06:07
It wouldn't seem likely that a massive rebuilding in GP is going to take place, unless the stadium becomes a non starter. So it's "Cosy Old Bullens" for the next few years, I would think.
52 Posted 18/06/2016 at 11:26:07
Would any or all of that investment be dependent on whether the UK is in or out of the EU? Because since Osbourne is for staying in I would assume he would have bigged up investment opportunities on the basis of remaining in (which I agree with BTW).
Now if in our current hysteria over immigration we decide to leave I think the PL will become a much less secure investment. Especially if we can't get the top european players like we have been doing up to now.
Not to worry. We can always go back to our super talented English players like Kane, Lallana, Sterling etc. Who wouldn't want to pay premium prices to see them?
Just Everton's luck. We finally get some cash to spend but there is a good chance that we may get cut off from the very players we would want to spend it on.

The rs came in at 22 (why bother? Usually it's the top 20 but the media had to include their beloved) with 62.000. The record is held by Ranger with 118.000+. The 1930's seem to be the Golden Years attendance-wise.

When Everton came up from the second division in 1954, the first the home against Arsenal and PNE were 69,000 and 76,000 and they were on the Wednesday and Saturday of the same week, it has to be said it is amazing that there were not some distasters, crowds were literally pushed from pillar to post.
Goodison Park was one of the best grounds in the country at that time if not the best.Sad to see the old lady today, but we will soon be on the banks of the Mersey.
62 Posted 19/06/2016 at 17:36:01
The biggest crowd I can remember at Goodison was a derby game and their were around 52.000 in the ground. We were packed in like sardines but what an atmosphere. Games are dead in comparison nowadays. I envy those of you who were in even bigger crowds.

My dad, if I remember right, used to tell me he'd go to the match, have something to eat then go to the pictures afterwards all for less than a shilling. That can't be right can it?

Do you think your own elected government are making decisions for you?
On another note the biggest crowd I was in was the '66 Charity Shield game. 66,000 at Goodison. I won't mention the result but a fantastic atmosphere all the same.
74 Posted 20/06/2016 at 10:47:20
I am convinced that, with proper control of space, standing room places are OK.
75 Posted 20/06/2016 at 15:34:01

Insert as appropriate.
Roll on the riverside stadium.

I think the Bayern semi in 1985 was about 51k and you could not move. It was a brilliant atmosphere though.
