“Everton And Liverpool Should Groundshare” said former Reds Chairman Martin Broughton this week. And he’s right. As the man who sold Liverpool to NESV, Broughton believes that the possibility should be seriously considered. And here’s 5 reasons why:
1. Both Clubs Are Never Going To Sort New Grounds
While the ‘New Anfield’ seems to be eternally just around the corner, Everton can’t seem to find a location within the city limits. This would be a simple solution as both teams can stay within the City of Liverpool and still have a brand spanking new stadium to play in.
2. Both Clubs Haven’t Got A Pot To (Urinate) In
As both clubs get priced out of deals in the transfer market on a regular basis, a groundshare would be a new source of more revenue and would save both clubs a fortune in moving.
3. If It’s Good Enough For AC And Inter…
Yes the two clubs hate each other, but isn’t it time to look past that?
4. This Is Seriously Holding Both Clubs Back
As both former giants decline, to move out of their old homes wouldn’t be the most sentimental option but would make perfect business sense. With the top3 moving ever-further away and new powerhouses such as Man City and Spurs on the scene, not to mention any other forces that may emerge (Villa, Sunderland, everyone else!!), the only option is to sell up and move out. And then sit back and watch the good football in a new stadium.
5. The Saga Will Finally End
It’s gone on long enough. When all other club’s rumours are over which superstar they might sign next, all that occurs in Merseyside is takeovers, failed takeovers and foreign owners. Sort it out!
