Moshiri bought the club on 27 Feb 2016.
6 weeks layers Anderson comes out and says he is interested in bidding for the 2026 commonwealth games.

Kenright would have been aware of this a few months before as there would of been discussions with various organisations whether a bid for the commonwealth games could be made.

Both kenright and moshiri were hoping for a man city/west ham scenario
Typical Kenwright stroke, this would not surprise me...why not, keeps the cost down

Most likely: a station between Sandhills and Moorefields.

Ambitious: Re-using the old underground tunnels and track routes that used to be along the docks.

Dream scenario: Brand new Monorail/Overhead Railway (DLR) built from Albert Dock/Brunswick towards Bramley Moore.
Worked out well for Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook

Interestingly I was watching a TV programme last night about a chaps family history. Part of this explored his Liverppol roots as his gt granddad was a Liverpool docker. A good deal of the programme was actually spent on BMD with the tower in the background all told about ten minutes.

If we don't get a monorail, the only acceptable alternative is being shot through transparent tubes by compressed gas.

A Liverpool firm’s plan for a super high-speed train that could get from Liverpool to Glasgow in 47 MINUTES has moved a step closer.

The Hyperloop line would propel “pods” full of passengers on a maglev track at hundreds of miles an hour through a sealed tube. The Liverpool to Manchester leg would take six minutes.
It sounds like science fiction – but the first Hyperloop test track has already been built in Nevada, USA, backed by Silicon Valley billionaire Elon Musk.
And now the Northern Arc team has won a global competition to work with Hyperloop to take its plans forward.
It’s one of ten winners in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge. And now Ryder and engineering giant Arup, the firms which have led the Northern Arc scheme, will produce a more detailed report into how this ambitious scheme could get funded and get built.

Paul Bell, a partner at Ryder, told the ECHO he was confident that the team could make a Hyperloop happen in the North.
He said: “Yes, it sounds very futuristic.
“We started looking at it seriously and investing time and effort into it about 18 or 20 months ago. In that timeline, things have moved on at an incredible pace.
“The Hyperloop concept track in Nevada has been constructed. They’re progressing with their testing.
“They’ve had their Kitty Hawk moment where they have propelled and levitated the test board.
“We met some ‘future rail’ academics earlier this summer. We chatted about the fact that Hyperloop was likely to happen at some point in the world in the next 10 years. They laughed and said to me that it’ll happen much more quickly than that.”


The Northern Arc plan would see Hyperloop One vehicles travel from Liverpool to Glasgow in 47 minutes



But for the Northern Arc, Mr Bell said: “There will be situations where it’s better underground, for geographical and topographical reasons.
“Certainly between Manchester and Leeds, underground would make a lot of sense. With the tunnel engineering required for Hyperloop, the tunnels need much smaller bores than would be required for traditional rail.
“But there are other places where it would make sense for the line to run above ground.”

So we could get from the city centre to BMD in 0.3 seconds?

That’s fantastic, but who actually wants to go to Glasgow.......

..that was amputee sprinter, Jonnie Peacock, on Who do You Think You Are. It is amazing how often that area of the docks features on such programmes, so the building of a new stadium can only enhance our profile.

If it ever happens, it would be great if some of the iconic landmarks like that fantastic clock can be restored to ensure the heritage of the site.
