GREAT news that there is progress being made on converting Anfield to a 60,000 seater stadium.
There have been other alternatives mooted, but I ‘m sure I’m like many other Liverpool fans in supporting an upgraded Anfield against a move elsewhere.
The ground is part the DNA of the club, along with the red shirts and You’ll Never Walk Alone, so the decision to stay put and add new chapters to the club’s illustrious history is spot on.
There is also no doubt that the marvellous old vessel needs a timely re-fit. As you go around the country you visit more and more impressive stadiums at less decorated clubs and Anfield just looks a mite threadbare in comparison.
It’s still the most evocative football stadium in the country, but with a real need to bring its facilities bang up to date – partly to give the club greater finances to re-invest in the team and just as importantly to continue to give the fans a special match-day experience.
Reports suggest work to start by 2014 – perfect, just ready to provide a new home for thousands of supporters and a hospitality suite or two for some of the current on-field Reds’ 21st birthday parties!
