Is there any further news on the fan zone which was supposedly opening underneath the stand?

I spent hours looking for ours! Unfortunately I wont be at another game before the end of the season and it's closed other than match days. Hopefully it'll be open before the end of the season. I wanted to take the kids on the tour but I'd like them to go when the pitch is looking green.

He wasn't perfect, he made mistakes. But he was genuine. He had the best interests of the club at heart, and gave us a plethora of successful teams that we should have been thankful for.

Bloody hell that takes me back some years and new profile on here! Oddly familiar situation we find ourselves in today - we've been blessed with some awesome human beings managing this club.

I love that on Skyscraper city they’re hour by hour reporting on tiny shifts in cladding and on here we’re reporting shit that happened half a year ago. I prefer us.

Let’s just imagine that the current ground was sitting  on a footprint which was relatively unrestricted in terms of further expansion.
If we were to repeat a MS on the SKD and a AR type single tier replacing the kop.
Anyone have a clue what capacity would be then?
Would look amazing but would have thought that capacity would not improve massively given the upgrade would be to modern standards.
I’m not dismissing the fact in cannot happen. I’m just bored really and a little curious.


You can’t do that exactly because the lower tier of each was retained with new tiers above. The SKD has already had that treatment, turning the Kemlyn Road into the lower centenary with a new tier above so you’d either knock down the upper and do a larger version or build new from scratch.

But… if you ignore all the realities and could match the stands you’d have Main and SKD around 20,000 each and Anny Road and Kop at 16,000 each. So 72,000. It would be great to try and make the Kop the biggest stand again but that would only be possible with proper standing like the Yellow Wall which could add another 7-8,000.

A couple of rows of seating have been installed in the far corner of Anfield Road End -plus looks like they were doing some filming/photoshoots for Klopp with the trophies being displayed on the pitch...

Fits in with the pics floating around today of Jurgen on the Kop and people saying he was doing a farewell video.

I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Aye, apparently it was a staff event to say goodbye to Klopp...

At the top of the first tier of the Anfield road end is this long red board. Does that cover hospitality boxes that will come into usage next season?

Does anyone know what the plans are for the Lower Anny concourse? I can't find anything online specifically for this area, but I can't believe it's gonna be left as it is ... we've still got a tarmac road in there!

Going by the plans it's completed, but you're right, it's hard to imagine they're not going to improve it somehow given the extra space.

Can't believe they'd leave it like that. Looks unprofessional as it is.

At this point - there probably isn't much chance to do more expansion?

Would they ever consider rebuild of the other 2 stands - or is the just a waste of money?

What about adding seats in the areas of the ground where two stands meet? You could call it Expanding the Seating at the Vertices or something snappy.

The pitch has been relaid after the concerts.

The clear cladding on the roof is being removed because it has settled/bowed and is holding water and leaking.
