Why are the currently giving fans tours round the site? What are they exactly showing?

Oh look there’s a dock, that’s a bit battered but if you walk a mile down the road you’ll see one in better condition.

Over there is the Wirral and to the side is a sewage works and that’s the end of the tour.

All seems a bit pointless at the minute, until they actually start commencing with the structure.

Did you ever watch the build up to a FA Cup final?
Have you ever sat at the table before the meal is on the place mat?
Do you ring through your beer order before entering the pub?
etc etc

Why would anyone be interested in a derelict site if they aren't interested in Everton?

"Raising our profile" through signing James and now "raising our profile" through video footage of a delapidated dock.

Where do people get these ideas from?

We're Everton Football Club. We dont need a broken down show pony or a video view of a dock being in-filled to have profile.
You really haven't got a clue have you.

Poor Dave indeed.

I think you are grossly underestimating the amount of people out there who love & geek out on this sort of stuff. Some of the most successful tv shows are about how things are made or how process works. There are channels that show repeats over & over because the demand is high enough. Youtube channels get big views with things like massive cranes, huge container ships, earth moving equipment, wind farm builds & also sport stadia builds. With ours being built on a dock it would make it even more interesting.
Do we need it to raise our profile? Well actually yes. We need it to carry interest to justify its cost. If we want it to work beyond just a place to play football then we need to get people interested in it as early as possible & keep them interested. Showing build progress can excite potential sponsors beyond just USM. It shows people we are serious about becoming a top team so we are taken more seriously because actions do speak.

That's all very woolly stuff though. How many would watch that and retain an interest in Everton? Do they retain an interest in every football club that builds a stadium?
