Did the Mayor just drop a hint about Everton’s new stadium location?

New, comment

Sounds like north docks it is

An innocuous tweet from the Mayor of Liverpool has set tongues wagging this Friday in the blue half of Merseyside.

Joe Anderson had met with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright about two weeks ago regarding the location of the Toffees’ proposed new stadium, but results of the discussion were never made public. The overwhelming choices remain the docklands area overlooking the Mersey, and the less popular Stonebridge Cross.

However, after Anderson tweeted today admiring the work done on Liverpool’s Anfield home, an Everton fan asked him about the view of the docks from the new stand and the Mayor’s response was a loaded answer for those who like to read into such things.

Don’t forget though, Anderson is up for reelection this year and his Twitter game has been on fleek lately, as this encounter will show.

So there’s something to think about as we ponder who will replace Muhamed Besic for the first half or more of the season.
