    Not quite sure what your point is apart from some pedantry laced with a heavy dose of sarcasm. If we’re doing pedantry then yes, the land is on a 200 year lease. The cash has been paid but with a clause that would see it repaid if the planning was rejected.

    Laing have been appointed the contractors and have already been doing some prelim work at the site and persuaded the club to alter parts of the original architects design - Dan Meis, who’s not been retained. There was also iirc an issue with the height of the structure from the planning aspect and it’s now been reduced by a metre.

    The stadium is the catalyst for entire North docks redevelopment scheme, it’s a £5BN project, and as @Tel had already pointed out, it’ll create jobs and revenue for the Liverpool City Region. Planning is a formality as the council have heavily backed the idea from the off.

    If you fancy an avatar wager on it mate, just shout :)

    I'd get used to people talking **** about it, if I were you. We had years of it and I doubt you'll be any different.

    The Kopites have been whining about it (not that they’re bothered or anything) from the moment the idea was put forward. As the stadium in on the riverside and it’s a dream location, the bank’s of the royal blue mersey and all that. Some of the objections raised at the consultation stage were hilarious. One being that filling in an unused dock on a piece of derelict land was somehow an absolute outrage, because history or something.

    Celtic B, given they've had 13 players come down with corona, after they flew out to Dubai for a jolly. <doh>
    Edit: Apparently it's just one player, but 13 have been deemed close contacts and been told to isolate.

    It’s not uncommon for architects to be dropped at technical and replaced, as certain architects are more geared towards concept than the technical delivery. No surprise if you’ve appointed Laing that they’ve proposed a partner they’re familiar with, it’ll result in good Value Engineering from a collaborative partnership. Already looks better planned than Spurs’ stadium tbh, where Levy’s interference and insistence on certain things blew his budget to smithereens.

    That was my understanding but Dan Meis got his arse right out about it on SM. The changes instigated by Laing and their team were quite wide ranging, not least a complete change to the design on the river facing aspect of the stadium, which is now concourse space as opposed to a multi storey car park!
