Playing in Saturday’s Merseyside Derby for Everton would be something of a dream come true for Beto:

“I always watched the Merseyside derbies growing up. That is where it started. My all-time hero is Samuel Eto’o and I loved Romelu Lukaku so both of those guys made me want Everton to win even more.

I would watch the derbies and say, ‘Everton can’t lose this!’, but I watched a lot of [Everton] games and still remember them now. The 4-0 win against Manchester City stands out and the 6-2 against Bournemouth when Lukaku scored four goals. For me, yes, it is a dream to have the chance to play in these games.”

The work that is being done to build the Everton Stadium is a balance between technology and skilled labour:

Everton’s Chief Commercial Officer Richard Kenyon on the links between Goodison Park and the new stadium:

“First and foremost it is a football stadium, and when that vision was set out years ago it was always going to be, number one, a footballing fortress. That is something that we wanted as a club, it is something that Goodison is famous for, but we also looked at it from research from our fan base, which was to keep the best things about Goodison Park.

So, the best things about Goodison Park as anyone will tell you is when the atmosphere is going it is incredible, and that is due to how close you are to the pitch and how steep the stands. That was principle number one and the design has reflected that, the stands are very steep and the venue is tight when you get inside.” [Echo]
