Architect Dan Meis has written a blog entry dedicated to Everton's Bramley-Moore Dock where he reiterates his excitement for what will be a project unlike any other his firm has tackled before.

The US-based studio was selected by the club to design an iconic stadium on the banks of the Mersey and supporters are now anxiously awaiting the first renderings of his vision.

Meis offers no timescale for the unveiling of those visuals but he assures Evertonians that he and his team "are being careful to insure that we are sure that whatever we show, we can deliver.

He explains that he wants to design an arena that "feels like it 'grew from the Docks' and can simultaneously look like it is from the future and yet has always been there."

Meis signs off by pledging to update the page further soon but leaves fans with a final thought:

"Someone recently tweeted to me that modern English stadiums are no longer intimate or intimidating...that they can't be because of modern regulations etc. To that person I say... "just wait, and see".
