How many rows did the Kop get expanded by?
It didn't really, just a few of the rows towards the back were extended out to each side. Not sure on exact numbers but I think about 500 seats were added

I seem to recall earlier in the thread they were to partially compensate for adding disabled and wheelchair areas at the base of the Kop?  The added seats don't fully offset the loss in capacity so the Kop actually seats less now?

It’s not the size, it’s what you do with it that counts

Although I'd always like to see a bigger Kop, the fact it will be smaller than the other stands doesn't bother me.

I see Anfield (atmosphere wise) something like a theatre. The Kop being the stage playing to the gallery steeped all around it. The size of the stage may be comparatively small, but with the right people on it the magic happens.

The worst thing that could happen to the Kop would be for it to be re-done/modernised. It’s old, uncomfortable, dark, the roofs way to low and the seats are far too close together. Which is everything that makes it perfect. Let the rest of the ground turn into a airy cinema, leave the Kop as it is, concentrate on making it safe standing and get the right people in there. Give me a spec up at the back in the dark with sweat dripping off the girders (pwhoooooar) any day.

The Kop isn't THAT old you know. The current stand dates from the mid 90s, roughly around the time Everton last won a trophy.



















Ah well, I guess that is pretty old though. ;D  8)
