The government has offered to broker talks between Liverpool FC and Everton FC about building a shared stadium. Sport secretary Andy Burnham MP, a lifelong Evertonian, made the pledge to mediate discussions while visiting young footballers in the city yesterday.I sincerely hope that when he doesn't want to express his preference he means "over my dead body".
"Obviously the situation has changed for both clubs, but it is for them to decide what represents the best way forward. Whatever they decide, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport would be available to help facilitate discussions and help the clubs explore the various routes. Obviously it is a continually moving situation and it is not right for me to express my preference either way."
