Moyes backs Everton-Liverpool ground share

Everton manager David Moyes has revealed he believes a shared stadium between the Toffees and Liverpool would be in the best interest of his club, but added he does not expect it to happen, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Moyes conceded that while a shared ground with Liverpool would make the best financial sense for Everton, Liverpool have the luxury of planning their own new home, either at a redeveloped Anfield or a site away from their traditional home.

A so-called football quarter had been mooted in the city’s Stanley Park - which separates Goodison Park from Anfield - and Moyes feels that would be the most logical step, but without Liverpool’s backing it is unlikely to come to fruition.

Liverpool recently confirmed plans for either a new-look Anfield or a move away from their current base, while Everton had committed to a site in Kirby that fell through when planning permission could not be obtained.

Moyes said: “I think Everton probably need a new stadium more than Liverpool but it is not something we have in our culture because we don’t share grounds. It does make sense, we could really redevelop the whole area around Stanley Park.

For us it is definitely worth doing. We’d take it but I don’t think Liverpool would probably want us or need us and from that point of view I think that is where it will end up.

Throw 200 million into the kitty and LFC will consider it. God what was that that just went passed my window, was it Superman? No. Was it a plane? No, hang on it's coming back, it's, no it can't be, but it is, it's a farmyard animal with a curly tail wearing a blue shirt with EFC on the back and Danish on the front and sporting a pair of chicken wings.

oh not this again, people are clearly stupid. LFC have already stated they want to refurbish or build a new stadium only. They don't want a ground share. Kenwright needs to sell up to someone who can invest in the team and a stadium and stop latching onto any idea of sharing with us. No means no,

Ah, goes something like this, you borrow £300M and build a nice new stadium, and we'll use it every other week. We haven't got any money but you're a good neighbour and so on. And no, you can't paint it red we're sharing it, and no, you can't have 75,000 seats because it'll look empty when we play. A non-starter methinks.
