Everton fans divided as ‘Yellow Wall’ inspired stadium designs unveiled

After a terrible result and performance at the weekend against Manchester City there was little doubt that Everton fans needed some good news this week.

Step forward the latest development in the club’s long-term ambition of opening a new stadium. The most recent site proposed for a new Everton home ground is Bramley-Moore Dock. The location has been cited since 2016 and now the lead architect on the build has Everton fans very excited.

Dan Meis, whose other builds include the Staples Center, Lincoln Financial Field and the Stadio Della Roma, has been highlighting his vision of the new Everton stadium to a fan forum this week.

The main plan that has caused excitement amongst Everton fans is that of a potential home section similar to Borussia Dortmund’s infamous ‘Yellow Wall’.

Such talk has had Everton fans very excited about a potential future stadium to replace Goodison Park, where they have played since 1892.

Whilst, of course, there is a lot of love for ‘The Grand Old Lady’ Everton fans are understanding that they need to move on and find themselves a modern venue to keep up with the rest of the Premier League.

But whilst there is excitement around the ‘Yellow Wall’ and a new build there is also trepidation. Everton fans have been going through the rack regarding a new stadium for some time now. Fans remember well the King’s Dock fiasco and Kirkby farce.

Not only that, but many are still concerned about the capacity and atmosphere at a new ground and if Everton will be able to fill a stadium of 60,000 people, which is being suggested as a potential figure.

But the main concern is that Everton currently don’t have the team on the pitch to play in such an extravagant new build.

Most Everton fans simply want the club to be playing better football and achieving success, which means the end of Sam Allardyce in most people’s eyes.

Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to the latest Everton stadium developments…
