Feedback email on the new stadium survey.

You recently completed a survey on our 11 'Key Principles' for a proposed stadium development at Bramley-Moore Dock.

We are delighted to present some of our findings back to you as well as offer you the chance to attend a feedback event with Club architect Dan Meis.

Overall supporters have given the Key Principles their resounding seal of approval. 97% of Evertonians agreed that the Principles presented by the Club represented a 'clear vision for the new stadium'. The Principles were also given an average satisfaction rating of 8.5/ 10.

Almost 10,000 fans have now taken part in the first series of surveys related to the stadium project, generating half a million responses. The findings from those surveys will inform an engagement programme planned by the Club over the next six months.

The most recent survey gave supporters the opportunity to rank the Principles and share their preferences on features they would like to retain from Goodison Park - as well as to provide feedback in areas relating to stadium design and capacity.

Fans ranked making the new stadium 'A Fortress' - a stadium that maximises atmosphere and creates a home advantage - as the most important of all the 11 Principles.

Including the Dixie Dean statue at the waterfront site was ranked as an important factor by 85% of fans, who stated that by doing this - and introducing a Club museum (86%) - the new stadium would immediately be adopted as the Club's 'New Home' - the Principle which was ranked second by the fans.

Supporters ranked 'Being Easy to Get To And Get Home From' as the third most important Principle, with the creation of an 'Iconic Landmark for Liverpool' ranked in fourth place.

In terms of stadium design, more than 60% preferred a 'square shaped' design compared to a curved or 'bowl' design, with more than 80% of fans stating a preference for the corners to be 'filled in'.

Two-thirds of fans preferred that the away fans be located in a corner of the stadium, and 93% opted for the tunnel to be on the halfway line.

In terms of capacity, 99% of respondents wanted the new stadium's capacity to be 50,000 or more.

94% of fans said it was important to them that as part of the 'Goodison Legacy' there was a permanent reminder of Goodison Park retained in L4.

Anybody know anything about the Monaco manager Jardim, apparently he will be available in the summer and would like a chance with a Premiership Club, with a few rags saying Mr Moshiri will give Big Sam his marching orders wondered if this story has any legs.

Trevor Steven was the most underated player ever. 444 games and 78 goals. 10 league champion winning medals with Burnley, Everton, Rangers and Marseille. UEFA Cup winners medal. 1 FA Cup winners medal. 2 Scottish League Cup. 4 Charity Shields. 1 FA Cup runners up. 1 League runners up. that's a total of 20 medals. He had one unsuccessful season with Burnley. Whilst a few of the league medals were with Rangers, they kept Celtic at bay and his other achievements are second to none! His whole career was successful whichever team he played with.

Steve Watson Hat-Trick in a 4-0 demolition of Leeds Utd, September 2003. The reason I pick this over others is simply due to him playing predominantly as a RB!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2018 16:47:24
The problem with picking Trevor Steven or anyone else from that team of the mid eighties is that there wasn’t a particular player that stood out as they were all just brilliant. So as much as I loved the football and of course the success, it’s hard to find a stand out player in a particular match because to be as good as they were it took all eleven of them to be awesome.

Spot on Degsy, absolutely cracking player. Still remember that goal he scored against Sunderland when the Mackenzie had the nerve to take the lead. Southall to Bracewell, he volleys it across the park to Steven who takes it in his stride and smashes it into the net. 3 players took less than 3 seconds from keeper to goal.
God I miss those days.

21 Mar 2018 17:33:05
Toffee ace I agree with you but there were some stand out performances as I mentioned above sheedy and Steven but also Andy Gray fa cup against Notts county.
I also have to say Big Nev against Southampton 84 semi was His greatest game for us. We would be been 5 or 6 down if it wasn't for Big Nev that day.
Great team collectively though.

Well guys you are all 100% right because there are no wrong answers in this one. It really is about opinions. Woburn that goal really was something special. They used it on match of the day the next season as the intro if I remember correctly. The angle he was in was so bad he should not have even contemplated shooting. The Andy Gray diving header 2 inches off the ground also springs to mind. And Toffee ace you are also 100% right with your assessment. I would even go one further and say even our subs were top notch. Alan Harper could play just about anywhere and put a great performance in. Kevin Richardson was another who we got rid of way too soon I always thought. And no mention of Rooney's goal away to Leeds. our first win there for donkeys. I guess there are just so many that we need reminding. I have one last one to mention. my neighbours Dad took me to my first game 1967. I can't remember who it was but I think it was Jimmy Husband or John Hurst who did an overhead kick that flew into the Gladwys Street goal and would have hit mein the face if there was no net! Of course the crowd erupted into a noise like I had never ever heard before. Some guy picked me up and hugged me. That bit I will never forget. At first I was scared. but I soon wanted more! If anyone remembers the goal let me know the game! I have a feeling it was Stoke?

Rooney v Arsenal. What a way to say hello to the footballing world.

Sheedy v Luton. The famous two freekicks.

Nev in the 95 final.

Arteta v Fiorentina.

Dunc v United.

Lineker v city 86. If you ever want to know what a top striker should be like then watch him in this game. He chases everything including lost causes and gets one of his goals just doing exactly that.

Sharp v that lot.

Dunc v that lot.

However, i'm with Ace. Kanchelskis v Liverpool was utterly brilliant. He scared the poop out of them. We were brilliant on the day and deserved the 3 points.

A little note on Royle who was manager for the last two. Undefeated against Liverpool as manager. They hated him. Absolutely hated him. And those players were not world beaters individually but together they were A bloody good team. The season before they were tipped to go down only for him to turn them into winners. A better board and chairman would have seen us challenging at the top again.

21 Mar 2018 18:51:56
So many to choose from, although strangely not from recently. i'd go for Jelavic scoring against Citeh after a lengthy goal drought, when the ball was layed off to him in the box, the whole good is on faithful stood up and shouted "Shoot! ", he bundled it towards goal, despite kicking his own feet and it went in. Everyone went berserk, Jelivic ran around the pitch swinging his shirt like a nutter, like Niasse probably did with his key when he was finally given a locker. I'd also go for Saha smashing 5 past Blackpool. He was immense, but sadly never again after that, really.

My goodness I agree with every one of you guys. just need ED025 to give us his pick. BJU classic! NickB57 I was there at that game! After about 15 minutes we were 3nil up and I remember saying to my next door neighbour/ mate. if this carries on we willwin 8 nil! lol . best ever prediction from me and I was 13 at the time! Downhill since! Great replies all of you. come on Ed025 get the noodles working and tell us yours!

{Ed025's Note - i wish my memory was as good as all you guys degsy, but im sure it would be a bob latchford one, or maybe a screamer from martin dobbo or mick lyons heading in a corner mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

I remember Mick Lyons heading in at the Park End against the dark side and dancing in the street end for 5 mins with my mate ony for it to be disallowed! Usual story. Ref against us too!

Big game against City coming up, I wish I knew the formula of why we always perform well against them, since the premier league started, City have won just three times at Goodson, even last season we knocked out a 4 nil win and if avoiding defeat, will be the only premiership team City have failed to beat this season in the league, all the remaining fixtures after Everton, City have already beaten earlier in the season.

Well as City have been playing, there's something about City that brings out a performance at the Grand old lady, so do not be worrying about hiding behind the settee, I have a good feeling about this game.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Mar 2018 00:07:03
Apologies, the above should say City have won just four times at Goodison in the premiership.

Can anyone tell me what Bolasie offers that Vlasic doesn't?
Or do we have another Schneiderlin issue where he has to play poorly for weeks before Sam is forced to make a change.
Now we have a proper left back playing I believe Vlasic would thrive out wide, as he won't have to spend all his time covering the l/ b.
Bring Vlasic in for Bolasie and while we're at it bring Klassen in for Davies. One needs to be given a break, the other needs a break.

{Ed025's Note - at the moment im giving bolasie the benefit of the doubt after his serious injury woburn, that wont last for long though if he fails to improve , i do agree that tom needs a rest and to give davey a shot seems like a good idea as we can use the rest of the season trying a few new things mate..

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 06:44:08
Hey Woburn, they are 2 very constructive shouts! I have supported Sam on here when he has made certain decisions. but yes Bolasie had an assist this week. but he has flattered to decieve. And you are right. with Baines back, perhaps Vlasic deserves a go. If Lookman was still here, I would have given him a go. I see he didn't get picked this week in Germany. Young players sometimes look great at first but then fail to continue their impressive starts. And that takes me to Tom Davies. yes I agree. He is very industrious and works his socks off. I was there for his goal against Man City. wow that was Brazilian! . yet now he gives the ball away and looks lost at times. Yes Klassen should be given a go. I would guess that both will be given a go now we are at 40 points. Sam has done what he was asked to do. let's see if the guy is now willing to experiment a bit. My guess is he will. Just because he comes over as some arrogant twit does not mean he does not understand footballers and the psyche of them.

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Mar 2018 07:58:53
It should be an interesting team selection against Man City coming up.

Bolassie too often doesn't have a final ball and that was there even before the injury but Vlasic still has a lot to prove. Tom D does look like he needs a rest but his confidence has been hurt already a couple of times this season. Klassen - we need to see if there is a player in there - I think there is but can he show it. I also agree with some posters that Beningami deserves another runout

Let's just hope it's not Scheiderlin again.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 12:40:30
Beningami is also a talent for sure. but likeI said. you can burnout the young players with too much exposure. I think Davies is suffering from that.

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Mar 2018 18:12:49
I’d love to see Vlasic given a go ahead of Bolasie. Vlasic had an eye for goal that Bolasie doesn’t. It makes sense to me that he should be given game time. Any player that weighs in with goals surely should get the nod.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 18:40:23
Surely we are going back to square pegs in round holes putting Vlasic on the wing, unless we change formation. His best position and the one he's played in the majority of his career is through the middle.
I also don't see any point in changing a winning team, and Bolasie has 2 assists in 2 so taking him out for someone who may or may not get a goal playing out of position seems a risk.
There is an argument for resting Davies so surely Valsic or Klassen would fit straight into that position if he is going to change anything. Personally i would keep a winning side together.

Although dare I say it, maybe Schneiderlin will be in the team again. 😔.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 19:38:42
I'd keep the same team for City and Liverpool and then start giving Vlasic and Davy a go.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 22:09:38
They might be a winning team (2 games) , but the football, if you can call it that. Has been awful, and some players are simply cruising through games. That should not be acceptable in my opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 22:46:23
The football has been awful all season Woburn and no mix of players have been any better than others. Who would you swap out and for whom?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 22:56:30
I like vlasic but I think he and his family need to shut up and him keep his head down. It might be that attitude that is keeping him out of the team.

Bolasie is a good player and he is getting sharper. However, he needs less tricks and better quality crosses. He doesn't score enough goals for me. Is he possibly replaced next year by onyekuru though?

Davies is not a number 10. In the 7 he looks so much better and he works the ball from deep really well from that position. However, who do you drop from Rooney and Gana? He is a kid though and is going to get better and better.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Mar 2018 10:08:04
isn't the number 7 a winger?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2018 17:28:24
The traditional number 7 in a 442 would be your right winger. If you want to put him in that team he would be the 6. Let's say the CM role.

19 Mar 2018 11:51:23
What do you think will be the situation with Dowell in the summer Ed? I've heard the club rate him highly and his performances for Forest this season have justified that, although where would he fit into the team? With Gylfi seemingly nailing down the AM position as his own, and possibly more transfers in the summer do you think he will go back out on loan or the club will try and integrate him into the first team a lot more?

{Ed025's Note - im not really sure on dowell BB, he has done well at forest as you say but the prem is a different kettle of fish, my view is that if sam is still here he could well be sold as the AM position seems to be one of the positions we are quite well stocked for, if a new guy comes in then he might have a different opinion and be brought back and given a shot, i think he deserves a chance myself but i cant speak for how the club feel on his situation mate..

Agree0 1Disagree

19 Mar 2018 21:59:33
I think it would go against everything the club has been aiming for over the last 3-4 years. Investing so heavily in youth and then selling a 20yr old who is notts Forrest top scorer this season. Can’t see that happening in a million years. I’ve kind of accepted mediocrity the last couple of years with the hope of Pickford, hollgate, Kenny, Davies, lookman, Keane, Calvin Lewis, Dowell becoming stars of the future.
If any of these are sold I’d be shocked. Can’t see it happening. I hope we sign shaw from Man Utd. Future team;
Kenny Keane hollgate shaw
Lookman Davies Dowell bollasi
Calvern- Lewis Tolson
Until then Walcott gaeye sigi Rooney Coleman mori Baines naisse
Sell scniderlin jags Williams Robles besic.

I know it was only pre season but I thought Dowell was one of our best players.

Plus ed. Need some experience in team to guide the youngsters. Even utds class of 92 had some older guys to help them along. (Bruce pallister McClair Hughes etc unless I am mistaken. )
Hope we can blend the youth into our first team and get rid of dead wood to move up the league and look up rather than worry about relegation.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 06:47:21
It is just too early to say on some of them. I would guess they will all be offered new contracts but whether they will be happy with them is another matter. If other clubs enquire and make bids. that will be the point when we see how much Unsworth and co rate them.

20 Mar 2018 14:56:00
A lot of the Nottingham Forest fans loved KD at the start of the season but recently it seems like he has started to drift in and out of games (which he used to do often for the U23’s) .

No doubt he has got something about him but I agree with Ed25 that, unfortunately, not every highly rated youth talent we have will make it to our first team or make a lasting impression on it (See George Green, Ryan Ledson, Liam Walsh, Luke Garbutt etc) .

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Mar 2018 16:02:11
Chelsea do this all the time good youngsters developed on loan then sold, its a revenue stream. When you are aiming at the top 4 then you do not often have the time to slowly integrate young players into a squad that are looking to win trophies.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Mar 2018 11:14:48
Dowell isn't popular with the Forrest fans.

Bad attitude.
Arrogant and disrespectful.
Troubles with local nightlife.
Frustrating as he is clearly talented but sounds like he's got some issues that should be a concern
Believes his own hype and isn't very nice guy from what my Forrest mates tell me.

I'd doubt he has the minerals to make our 1st team. Another young one that we will make a nice return on and will end up floating between l1 and the championship. Shame but we've seen it before. Guess that's one of the positives of a loan. We find out before we commit him to a squad number.
