Alright, I’ll admit it. Those proposals for Everton’s stadium look pretty awesome. It certinaly seems that Dan Meis is going to great lengths to ensure that the intimate feeling of Goodison Park remains in place at Bramley Moore.

You can never be sure how a stadium will “feel” until the lights are on and the Blues are facing off with another Premier League club, but everything is looking fantastic on paper. The Everton fan in me leads me to believe something will be wrong, but it’s tough to find any faults in this initial sneak peek. I’M JAZZED!
