    Thanks for that. I thought that the idea was to maintain connectivity between the docks on either side, so I assumed that some boat traffic would still be allowed, or is it just for aesthetic reasons?

    Yeah, the more I think about it it certainly doesn't need to be as deep as the dock, and the sand base is probably needed for tanking the channel that's left.

    That's what I was wondering about, as it hasn't been isolated as yet. Do they fill to a certain level and then sink some barriers or fill the whole thing and then cut out the channel again?

    One thing I find puzzling is that they haven't isolated the channel at the dock entrance, so they must be intending to excavate it again once the whole dock has been filled. Seems a bit wasteful to me, does anyone know why they are doing it this way? I don't have the will to plough through all...

    Match Thread Everton v West Ham Utd; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll.

    At one point I said to my mate that Iwobi hasn't got a football brain, he said I could have left the "football" bit out.

    Match Thread Everton v West Ham Utd; Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll.

    My first game back at Goodison this year and it has put me off for the rest of the season. I would add that Iwobi just isn't a footballer. Having him and Rondon in the side actually worked against us, it was worse than playing with nine men.

    Everyone will have lost their sense of smell thanks to Covid so it won't be an issue.

    2020/21 James Rodriguez

    Not sure which players you are thinking of, possibly Ferguson, but I can't think of many who missed games as frequently as James., and that is the key for me. He is simply not available often enough to make a difference to the team's progress, and despite flashes of brilliance he can also be...

    He was fewmin' wasn't he, although he did admit the nod to its surroundings through gritted teeth. To be fair, I thought the rest of his comments that the damage has already been done were spot on - he obviously knows the waterfront. He is completely wrong about BMD though.

    Confirmed Signing Demarai Gray

    He will be alright when he meets the lads, and they explain it's mostly about fashion shoots with the odd footy match thrown in.

    In all honesty, we know it's not the greatest place in the country, and I don't like the rest of the stuff Peel are putting up, I have never been a fan of tower blocks. I think they do overshadow the old waterfront., but the argument about taking away the WHS listing seems almost spiteful when...
