      Just wanted to say that having been a late sixties Kopite and being part of the Red family for half a century I am so pleased that we stayed at Anfield which will always be our Spiritual Home.



      All we need now is for Anfield to become a FORTRESS once again and put the shits up every visiting team before they have even kicked a ball.Just like the good old days of Bill,Bob,Joe and Kenny.

      Liverpool FC to announce Anfield Road extension plans later this year

      Announcement expected this summer
      Club have been considering 3 proposals
      Work will begin after new training ground is complete next year

      Phase one of Anfield’s redevelopment saw the Main Stand increase the famous stadium’s capacity to just over 54,000, with work being completed last season.

      Next, the proposed phase two – which the club have outline planning permission for as part of their original planning application in April 2014 – will add a further 7,000 additional seats.

      That new capacity of around 61,000 would make Anfield the second biggest club stadium in the country behind Old Trafford – although Manchester City have plans to expand their stadium to a similar size and Tottenham‘s new White Hart Lane will hold 62,000.

      Liverpool have had three designs drawn up, with the final design to be revealed later in 2018 – most likely in the summer.

      The new stand, which will see Anfield Road itself closed off, will be the same height as the new Main Stand and from the outside will aesthetically look the same with a three-tier design. Plans include an external podium similar to the Main Stand and large glass windows.

      Away fans will be housed on the other side of the stand, nearer to the Kenny Dalglish stand and therefore where visiting coaches arrive into Arkles Lane.

      The club will complete the new training complex at Kirkby, with work there due to start imminently, before beginning construction of the new Anfield Road End.

      The £50 million training ground expansion is set to be completed in 2019, with a roadmap for the Anfield Road End seeing its completion in 2021.

      That would be a similar timeframe as the Main Stand, which saw construction begin in December 2014 and conclude just in time for the 2016/17 season.

      The current Anfield Road End holds just under 9,000 supporters but features heavily obscured views in the back sections of the lower tier. The new stand will have fully unobstructed views and will house around 16,000 supporters.

      Given that the new Main Stand holds around 20,000 supporters and the Kop has a capacity of 12,600, you can get a sense of the scale and how vast the new stand will be.

      The last official word from the club regarding the expansion of the Anfield Road End was in December when CEO Peter Moore told Sky Sports: “We totally get what we need to do. We’re going to do what we did with the Main Stand as an operating group, which is look at what we need to do in a measured manner.”

      Last April, Andy Hughes, Liverpool’s chief operating officer, explained that: “We always said that we would complete the Main Stand and assess its success before looking at any development for Anfield Road.

      “Our outline planning consent expires in August 2019 and we will follow the same robust process for Anfield Road as we did for the Main Stand.

      “We are currently working up design, feasibility, cost, capacity and economic viability options. Only once we have completed this comprehensive process and come to a conclusion will it be the right time to move forward with any development programme.”

      You can therefore expect an announcement on the new plans before that August deadline.

      There are no plans to expand either the Kop or the Kenny Dalglish Stand, or to ‘fill in’ the corners of the stadium – this is due to the external cantilever supports at each end of the Kop.


      Not sure how reliable...

      Also I would have expected it to contain something about public transport links too if the seats are above 60k.

      This is great news if true. Coupled with the probability that we move from Melwood to an expanded Kirby and the infrastructure is all of a sudden starting to look modern.

      Incidentally, as referenced in that article, an expansion of the Annie Road would bring our capacity up past 60,000 and near Spurs new capacity. Does anyone know how Tottenham are paying for their stadium? Any possibility of them going prudent in the transfer market like Arsenal did after the Emirates was built?

      Team first, then stadium! Then you can say they have the clubs best interest at heart. As it is we still have a sell to buy policy, and as much as I want to see an increased capacity, it does nothing but increase the clubs value unless the extra revenue generated goes towards the transfer kitty.
      All the extra TV and sponsorship money hasn't exactly increased our budget thus far!
      If they really had the clubs best interests at heart, they'd fund it from their own pockets!

      Mock up for sure. That's just the main stand at 3 sides of the ground.  Looks nice though, but I don't think it's possible to expand the Kenny Dalglish stand to that size.

      For all the talk of investments in the team though... Look at United who invest more than anyone, it's got them nothing but problems. They have the most expensive manager, the most expensive midfielder the most expensive forwards... Are they better than us? I don't think so.

      But I still get what you mean, more more into the club is a good thing when done right.

      I think UTDs biggest problem is Mourinho. He just loves the idea of spending money, but he's lost his touch and is no longer a top manager. If Klopp had that kind of budget we'd walk this league.

      Utd's problem is Mourinho ....but its self inflicted by Utd.

      If no one has yet woken up to the back handed mega takes € he gets from his mates ...the agents ... then they are thicker in the Boardroom at the Old Toilet than I thought they were.

      Long time dead this thread, as not much has gone on.

      I guess we all know about the temporary agreement with the Club, Council and local residence of the ground to hols out door concerts during some of the summer free time.

      I was lurking in the Spurs thread on Skyscraper, and they have pointed out that the LED advertising boards have some new features, but not to the naked eye. This sort of made sense as I noticed that the boards at Anfield looked different, as the corners seem rounded and complete.

      Here are the posts:

I may be wrong but I would have thought that the ability to show different adverts alongside the pitch is something done by the broadcaster with a graphics overlay rather than anything special with the screen itself.

The adverts are sold by the club and nothing to do with broadcaster. This product is about maximising advertising revenue by targeting different markets with different ads. Eg Asia get the Asian beting ads uk get stanley power tools ads usa get coca cola.

      And we're back.

      @JamesPearceLFC
      Big news from Anfield today. #LFC have reaffirmed their intention to redevelop the Anfield Road Stand with ambitious new plans now under active consideration to take the capacity to over 60,000.

      Existing outline planning permission, which expires next month, will be allowed to lapse. A new application will then be made for a bigger scheme.

      Consultation is now the immediate priority.
      LFC's chief operating officer Andy Hughes: “We are committed to working with local residents, planning officials and others as we now focus on the detail behind any proposed redevelopment for Anfield Road."



      Liverpool Football Club today reaffirms its intention to redevelop the Anfield Road stand with ambitious new plans now under active consideration.

      As part of this process, the six-time European champions have committed to engaging with the local community and other key stakeholders while pursuing a vision in keeping with the club’s aspirations.

      As a direct result of this development, existing outline planning permission will be allowed to lapse in order to allow work to continue on alternative options with a view to submitting a new planning application for a larger scheme in due course. 

      Liverpool FC chief operating officer Andy Hughes said: “The progress that has been made during ongoing feasibility studies has resulted in us being in a position to allow the outline planning permission to lapse. We are committed to working with local residents, planning officials and others as we now focus on the detail behind any proposed redevelopment for Anfield Road.

      “Throughout this process we have been clear that our objective is to find the best possible solution for Anfield Road and that remains the case."

      This is going to interesting, as I/we were under the impression that local transport infrastructure restricted any ground expansion would be  limited to 60,000.

      As new plans are to be drawn up, I guess we'll have to wait for a bit to see any idea what they have got planned.

      Wrong thread, but no my friend, I think the waiting list is closed, and this expansion would make no difference into the list/wait.

      God knows how much a ST is, and to be able to see a guaranteed 19 games is madness.

      But back on topic, I'm sure official news will be slow, but any worthwhile bits I find, I'll post here.

      Wrong thread? I  thought if there was a waiting list that the expansion of the stand might allow some to reach their goal.

      ST's have been discussed in other threads, I'm sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but until all the dead people stop collecting their tickets, the living won't have a look in.

      I'm confident that no matter how many more seats are created, all this will do is enlarge the Thomas Cook experience. Unless of course, FSG go rouge and have a post code filter, which would be great.

      Many moons ago, I think I was around 10000 on the waiting list, but then the membership 'scheme' kicked in, and I never followed it up.

      I'll try and fine the ST thread tomorrow, but I suspect there will not be much in it, as getting one now will have greater odds than winning the lottery.
