Player Valuation: £70m
there probably is a reason!Personally I don't understand why Goodison can't be dismantled and a new "bowl" arena built which would probably seat 50,000. Goodison is ageing and is essentially a collection of separate stands but the site on which it stands could still hold a more modern, efficient stadium couldn't it?
I have the feeling that this is to deflect the anger when we are told that there is no money to buy Lukaku or anyone else as "we are investing in a new stadium". That excuse could be good for the next decade!
Considering the help that London clubs get (and with West ham being given an olympic stadium) we should be given more help otherwise it's all anti-competitive.
