    Yea - dreadful idea - look at Real and Barca - I bet they wish they could reduce the size of their grounds - what a handicap - imagine what Madrid might of won then eh...

    I bet they do - it is too big in all truth.. Barca are actually expanding again to over 105,000 - they don’t fill the Camp nou much at all... Seems crazy but they are going ahead

    Interesting though isn’t it - would you want a ground that was always full because half the people wanting tickets couldn’t get in OR would you rather have a stadium that at times wasn’t full but that could accommodate many more fans for certain games and at times when demand was high.?

    Dortmund seem to do it best - loads of seats at good prices.. EDIT this is old but still

    The BVB is a hugely beloved club in Germany. Neutrals like them too. I have a lot of time for them and their fans.

    I'm talking about being a supporter in the ground up in the gods. I very much doubt you would feel any great atmosphere watching the match 50 metres from the pitch.

    I know Ian - but people do watch games from that elevation. Itís not a new phenomena... You stick a few corporate toffís and the away fans up there... Still. Ether than some of the restricted view seats at the ground today..

    You do also know that I was never suggesting or expecting a 100k Anfield donít you? But something in the 70ís isnít WILDY over ambitious.. Is it?? You know - like that other football club just down the east Lancs road that speculated to accumulate...?

    3 sides of Anfield is perfect, only the Anfield rd feels small and out of place. Get it right and the whole stadium will be perfect. No doubt they will be looking to incorporate restaurants , bars and corporate boxes within the stand which will keep the money people happy.

    The new ARE plans look bloomin marvelous. Can't wait... please make it happen...




    As Klopp's Scouse uncle says though congestion around the ground is already a joke - getting home after a game is ridiculous and I can only imagine how I would feel if I lived anywhere close. The City council need to pull their finger out now - Build a sodding station FFS - 2 huge clubs right there and no public transport infrastructure worth talking about.. No wonder the city has lost so much - get off your arses and invest in your own city..The waterfront is not the only place that matters...!!
