Both us and the Evertonians are currently pursuing plans to build new stadiums independently. Although we have pushed back to 2012 and they plan to move outside to Kirkby, which seems unpopular among their fans.
Warren Bradley, head of city of Liverpool committee for England’s World Cup 2018 bid, claiming to have seen the accounts of both clubs, said that any plans for new grounds can succeed only if the 2 clubs share 1 stadium, therefore sharing a stadium similarly to Lazio + Roma and Milan + Inter, since neither Anfield or Goodison Park currently meet F.I.F.A. criteria as a stadium that can host World Cup games. Bradley also claims that the clubs should share the payment and the stadium will cost 300 million pounds. While the Mighty Reds have refused to comment on this, Everton spokesman Ian Ross angrily retorted, “Yes, the Everton directors have one view and that view is that we should push ahead with the destination project. For Warren Bradley to suggest that the directors have one view and that is [to have] a shared stadium is the usual utter nonsense.” He added: “We have spent nearly three years working on destination Kirkby and are giving absolutely no consideration to any other scheme. Perhaps councilor Bradley should have fought somewhat harder to keep Everton inside the Liverpool city boundary if he is that intent on a joint stadium.”
It’s enough we share a city with them, but a stadia! This is utter nonsense and the fingers must surely point at the Yanks. Get out of the club before we share players!
