    The £80million Anfield Road redevelopment is on budget and on track for completion in time for the start of the 2023-24 season. An extra 7,000 seats will boost capacity of Liverpool’s stadium to around 61,000. The club are open to the idea of selling naming rights to the stand (not the stadium itself) if the right offer is forthcoming.

    “It’s certainly something that we will consider,” says Hogan. “We didn’t for the Main Stand; we may for Anfield Road. We wouldn’t say no to it but it’s not something we’re actively pursuing currently.”

    I think the press and counter press isn't as good as it was, I don't think it's been integrated as part of the tappy crappy development, making it easier for teams to counter on us and meaning we don't win the ball high up as frequently or as many second balls as we used to
    Front to back is for the ladies....lol

    Changes for the new Premier League season -

    The multi-ball system - which allows the game to resume with another ball when the match ball goes out of play - is to return, partly as an effort to speed up the game. In-game time last season averaged 55 minutes 07 seconds, regarded as 'unacceptable'.

    Concussion trials are to continue for another season. Teams are allowed to make an extra substitution in the event of a suspected concussion. The Premier League is understood to be supportive of the idea of temporary substitutions, though, and is lobbying for it. It believes club medical staff should be given an amount of time to make a call without the substitute being permanent.

    Premier League clubs have been advised not to stop games for a medical emergency in the stands unless absolutely necessary.

    Assistant referees have been instructed to only delay raising their flag for an obvious offside when there is an immediate chance of a goal.

    Clubs will be allowed to play friendlies while the World Cup takes place in November and December.

    Still think ditching 90mins and playing 60mins with a stopped clock everytime there is a stop in play is the way forward.

    I remember in-game time in Serie A being measured at 65 minutes in the past and folks thought THAT was bad - there was a fair bit of "that would never happen in England" and it seems the Premier League averages at being 10 minutes worse per match!

    The introduction of VAR must be impacting the in game time. The clock isn't stopped during a review, is it? Maybe they should look at stopping it during the VAR reviews as a start. I doubt the full time taken for all the reviews are allocated in injury time.

    Plus the number of players now feigning injury and requiring "treatment" seems a lot higher.

    Nope. 60mins for both teams to do what they need to do.

    The actual length of time of the match would still work out at 95mins, just the parts where the ball isn't in play is lsnt counted. So a player waiting to take a corner or or a keeper waiting to take a goal kick the watch stops and only starting again when the ball is in play.

    It would stop time wasting instantly.
