    I was listening to an online chat from a club secretary of a non league club about the return of fans and it said that while it's massive for the lower leagues who can get their normal numbers back, Premier league clubs will actually be taking a...

    The appearance of a stand is imposing if it is steep, but in terms of actual atmosphere, no. It encourages sitting, fans are higher up from the pitch therefore further away. A fan is say 12 to inches higher up from the fan in front, Gwladys...

    Steepness of other stands do you mean? Depends on size really, they have to be steep if they're large stands. The larger the stand the less choice you have on gradients. A smaller stand that is steep is Tranmere's. It's got the same number of...

    34 degrees, but a stand is a parabola, meaning that they go steeper every 20 rows or so. They're not one gradient front to back unless they're a small stand, so the South Stand will have about 3 gradients, eg (completely guessed amounts here) 20...

    The safe standing needs to be at the back of the South Stand not the front. Too far from the roof at the front so the noise will not amplify to the rest of the stand as well as it would if at the back.

    Yes great work that from Billy Smith, he done a few books, a good few years ago now chronicling our first few seasons in the football league. He also uncovered how back in the 19th Century our fans would clap the opposition goalkeeper a...

    9 goals conceded in 4 games says it all. A better defence and we would have scraped through this period until Richarlison was back.

    Hopefully they'll leave it up. 1995 was great there was a spirit about the place similar to now. Also, this season has been a great start, but we want the club to know that a great start means nothing if we don't go on to win anything this year...

    Only a few on here will remember, ‘cause it was a long time ago, Evertonians know how to celebrate and even rally the team when they are on the floor, I’m going back to the cup run in 1953, I’ll understand if you’ve stopped reading!! Anyway home...

    So they can vote no to new owner taking over a different club?

    The last time we all went the match we were rubbish so yes ale would definitely have been more important. You often get that 2.40 dilemma. Shall I get another pint or go in the ground early.

    Spot on mate!, times were what they were, it has improved undoubtedly, still a lot to do, but most football grounds are much better these days. I don’t get all this chest beating over the past, it happened, we survived, learn from it and move on...

    It was a society problem, certain regions there was less mixing between races. Everton and Liverpool fans were the same as it was just as prevalent in everyday life. There's no moral high ground to be had over each other.
