Imagine being Everton football club and having the fans watching your EVERY move during the building of a new stadium... Must be terrifying 😅

Waiting for their first opportunity to go, Boooooooooooooooo!

There's a 50 mile wide block of sandstone that everything sits on, The Dee, Hoylake, The Wirral, The Mersey, The City out to past Woolton and beyond...they dug the stone out for the Cathedral from Woolton Quarry. The railway cuttings from Edge Hill to Lime St. Show it.

The sand will sit on this, big metal tubes will be sunk through both sand and into the rock, filled with steel reo and concrete and the concrete base will sit on top.
Sorted
Very cool

Yes, I know that's not how to spell Allan

The dredger was getting some solid booing when it was just moored up doing nothing. We appreciate hard-working dredgers at this football club. NSNO.

It's literally the name of the place they're documenting 🤣
It's literally The Everton Stadium.

It's not a dock anymore.

The club are concerned on two fronts:

1/ to get away from the infamy of that name. Clubs are very anxious to distance themselves from controversy...especially something as sinister as slavery.

2/ they dont want everyone calling it the Bramley Moore Dock stadium as they have a commercial partner to find to pay for naming rights to the site, and they dont want that overhang.

Oh you finally believe that it's real then. Incredible.

Cant imagine the club are losing too much sleep over this.

Let’s face it the official name will be the USM arena, or the Amazon Superdome or the McDonald’s Big Mac Matchday Bowl or some such, and that’s what it will be referred to in all marketing, signage, sky and media coverage etc.

Fans will likely call it Bramley Moore informally, and the club can set an great example by acknowledging the history of the dock and the man who’s name it took, good and bad.

Good and bad!

There's nothing good to be said about him.

The club will be dropping that name like a hot potato from now on. Journalists might lazily use the name of that former dock, the club wont. I agree with that. It should be erased from history.

Going to have to disagree here....
History should never be erased....
History is there to be learned from so that we can avoid mistakes of the past and become better as a society
You can't just pick and choose the nice bits because something was horrible or offensive....
That's the line of thinking that leads to the type of idiots that deny the Holocaust happened....

Which is what I said, the club will no doubt sign legal agreements to refer to it only by it’s ‘paid for’ name.

Disagree with you over ‘erasing history’, but that’s a conversation for another day / thread.
