Anfield the home of Liverpool Football Club, the ground has so many famous moments so many fantastic European nights so many fantastic supporters but soon it all may come to an end.
Liverpool Football Club has a soul searching dilemma do they try and stay at Anfield and hope the stadium can be redeveloped or move to a new and bigger stadium, every Liverpool fan deep down wants to remain at Anfield but the reality is that Liverpool Football Club has out grown Anfield and it is now a time to move on.
All Liverpool supporters want the club to develop and become the team we all want Liverpool to be, but this dream of being a consistent top two team we all pray for will not happen simply because we need to be in a financial position to command the best players in the world and at present we are miles away from even becoming a top three team, Liverpool have to move with the times and not be caught up in old sentiment towards Anfield.
A move away from Anfield will not only provide Liverpool Football Club with extra money from ticket sales which in turn will provide the funds to afford top quality players, but will benefit the whole of Liverpool itself, the building of the stadium will generate thousands of jobs for local Liverpool people, I hope that whoever gets the contract to build the new stadium has to offer the local people the job first before looking elsewhere, Liverpool people are not work shy in fact its work that is shy in Liverpool.
FSG must realise by now that a redevelopment of Anfield is sadly unrealistic and cannot produce the funds needed to propel Liverpool into the next phase of rebuilding both the team and the club, what Liverpool Football Club must not become is a faceless club with a stadium that lacks atmosphere and heart, but is full of supports with song in their hearts and a place where travelling away fans and players wish to come and experience.
Anfield will always be in every Liverpool supporter’s heart and that will never go but as a club who wants success, it’s time to move on.
