Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some news emerged on their proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
Writing in his latest piece for The Athletic, Patrick Boyland has now revealed that the Goodison Park faithful are very close on getting two funding streams for the new ground.
Should Everton move to Bramley-Moore Dock?
While this is good news in terms of the stadium’s development, a lot of the Merseyside club’s supporters were left raging at the timing of it, as one supporter said: “Oh what a surprise a bad defeat and a stadium announcement.”
After two losses at the hands of Aston Villa last weekend in the Premier League and Queens Park Rangers in the Carabao Cup in midweek, it’s fair to say fans are in no mood for this.
Nonetheless, Rafa Benitez needs to get some good results soon in order to brighten the mood among the Toffees, especially in the build-up to moving grounds.

These Blues fumed as the news on the stadium was shared on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even going as far as to claim that the timing of it was ’embarrassing’:
“The predictability. It’s embarrassing.”
“Oh what a surprise a bad defeat an a stadium announcement, could not write it”
“Two days too late Paddy, surely they should have timed this just after QPR put in the winning penalty?”
“Wow positive stadium news after a poor team performance – seems to be a pattern here”
“Announcement on stadium after a few awful results. Doesn’t surprise me one bit. Need to focus on our atrocious squad than anything else right now”
