A backstop is exactly what’s required for safer standing.

The best option, depending on how close the current steps are to safe standing regs (I'm sure Peter said in the past they meet them, but I could be wrong) would be to keep what's currently there, convert it to safe standing when allowed, then see if we can expand the corners and back some more to maybe try to add another 3-4k on.

I think everyone's kidding themselves over safe standing. Liverpool will be the last club on earth to introduce it, and almost certainly not even then. As long as a single member of any of the Hillsborough families says they're opposed to the reintroduction of standing, the club simply won't do it. They'd never go against their wishes.

I don’t think we’ll be the first but I do think if it becomes legal then their will be that much Fab pressure that the conversations will have to happen and I think that could lead to it happening within Anfield.

I don't choose to live or work near a football ground, but plenty of others do. For some, being up-close to Anfield is a dream. For others, their businesses would probably not exist anymore unless they were so close to the ground that brings so much footfall and money their way.

With that in mind, I'm sorry, but residents claiming they are feeling ''hemmed in'' by expansion of Anfield is laughable. This is 2019, and there has never been as much space around Anfield Stadium as there is now. The area all around is positively airy compared to what it used to be.

Its a bizarre statement. You would of thought having another 6000 people as footfall close to your business on a match day would be a good thing.

Not really as she states, she lives on Skerries. Matchday for us is turn up have a few beers, watch the game, maybe have another couple and then leave. For ressies it consums the day - or if event based 2 days. I want expansion but her concern is justified.

To be fair I live close enough to old Trafford where the traffic has a big impact on me if I want to go anywhere by car, either do it 2 hours before, 2 hours after or during the game

Train bit is a good idea but needs a good park and ride so those of us who public transport isn’t an option can use it and park further away from the ground

Yes the concerns are more than justified. You need to live awhile in the near siege conditions that regular major public events place upon locals to really understand it.

Thing is I can't see what the answer is. The club can only do so much. They can't stop people from going any which where, and even if they did, even if residential streets were made no-go areas and people were funneled along set routes, that would still add to the abnormal conditions that people have to live in.

I just wanted to clarify that in my last post I wasn't dismissing the concerns of local residents. I just found the idea that residents feel ''hemmed in'' by the expansion of Anfield a bit weird, considering there has never been more room around the ground as there is today.

And a huge amount of housing around there now is not the small terraced roads of years ago. The whole area in general has never been so open.

Ive got mates and relatives who live around the ground and when the concerts were on they had to divert traffic which was a pain in the arse coming and going. People may as well not bother visiting on matchdays as ye cant get a space whether you have a permit or not. Even residents struggle for parking if theyve been at work and come home when somethings going on
