If we are going to be successful in the premier league then we need s stadium that not only holds 80,000 + but has the state of the art facilities for the players as well as the fans. I know that clubs like Chelsea Man City have sugar daddy’s to pay for players, but come 2013 when the sugar daddies wil not be able to put their hands in their pockets will struggle buying big players because their stadiums are too small. We need to find some money to build this stadium now and it will pay for itself by holding events when football is not played. We have to be bold and posative and make this move and build this new massive stadium and revenue will flow. A new stadium should do. Don’t get me wrong, I love Anfield but I don’t see a re-developed stadium more than 65k + capacity, New Anfield might have 75/80k capacity. On a personal point of view, I loved the New Anfield designs since I’m a fan of modern architecture. 1 thing I’m sure of is that I don’t want ground share with the blue noses. YNWA i whant to keep the unfild or redevlov it cause am whnat to bee there inchalah am from morocco and i hope to goo and see a match for liverpool there i have monny passport but i am not sure they will give mee a visa i never try but i whant to redevlope the unfild to see how it is withaout a bigggggg changes issam from morocco a crazy liverpool fan I believe we need a new place bkuz there is a new era to come in liverpool.who knows maybe anfield reign has gone or maybe its cursed.pls lets change. LFC need to move with the times! The new stadium is the way to go! The ‘New Anfield’ on the site in Stanley Park would look magnificent and would be seen from miles around! I have supported the REDS since 1952 when they had the ‘boys pen’,and lived close by! I have all the same feelings towards the club as other supporters have! The facts are though, that Anfield has been added on to and changed numerous times over the years,and it certainly ‘is not the same as it was years ago’. A new stadium on the other side of Anfield Rd is still ‘ANFIELD’. The Shankly gates and Hillsboro memorial woulonly be a few yards from where they are now ! The ground as it is now would have to be turned around with the goals to the east & west,other wise the target of 70,000 crowd capacity would never be achievable! ‘YES’ Anfield has a lot of history,but I as an old supporter really do think the club should be looking to the future. Got to build a new stadium, atmosphere is only special for the big games anyway and the same fans will be in the new Kop. The original kop and boot room are long gone and thes no way we are gonna get 15000 more seats plus exec boxes in a redeveloped Anfield. The One thing hicks and Gillette got right was the fantastic plans for the new stadium. Let move the whole 50 yards! Bricks and steel will not win us League Titles. I appreciate we need to be able to seat more people to create revenue, but I also believe we would not regularly get more than 55 / 60 Thousand. That would be easily achievable with a new tier on a redeveloped Main Stand and on the Anfield Road stand. We could also create new Boxes / Corporate seating at the same time 65,000 capacity will do.. Antione. Not being funny mate but why is “do nothing” a vote option. Surely its move or redevelope????? As much as I hate to say it, we need a new stadium. If we are truly looking to be able to catch up to (and ultimately compete with) the likes of Arsenal and M********r United, we need to be able to have a stadium with a capacity of approximately 65,000 to 70,000. If Anfield is redeveloped, it’ll be extremely difficult to reach that range, not to mention the fact that it would be very difficult for such construction to take place over the course of a single summer without having an effect on the fixture list in August. A new stadium would generate more revenue and not have such problems as far as timing is concerned. Me again! Where would the home games be played whilst altering the present stadium???.also,redevelopement would mean knocking down all the houses that the club have bought over the years of contemplation! Those house’s could be sold again at a profit! I want to develop Anfield, but we have to move somewhere else first while Anfield rebuild. As much as I want Anfield redeveloped, I guess it would be nice if a bigger version of Anfield was built. Hope they name it sth sensible though. New Anfield would be great. A new Anfield but make it very similar to Anfield. But much bigger. 75-80k seating capacity. Anfield is a historic stadium and has been a intimidating and amazing places to watch football.. if its redeveloved though alot of money would need to spent on the surounding arrears and infrastructure, with a new staduim we could easily fill a 80,000 plus. seater no questions and nearly double our gate revenue.. gotta be worth it.. I thought it wasn’t possible to redevelop Anfield to beyond 55,000, what’s changed then? I think it’s a bad idea to try to redevelop Anfield just because of an emotional attatchment, it makes more financial sense to build a new stadium with a 60,000 capacity and the option of increasing the capacity sometime in the future. Personally, I feel I new stadium would be the best way forward. If Man U can near enough fill an 80k seater stadium every week then so can we. There is no chance it hell that they are supported any more than we are. There are meant to be 70k+ on the season ticket waiting list, admittedly half of them probably do not require one any longer as it is a bit of a mess with people being on it for 10+ years but that is still 35k! Add that to the 30k or so season ticket holders that liverpool have and thats 55k! Leaving 25k for the day trippers in wales and london coming up. If Liverpool take off the way that we all think/hope it will and are consistently there or there abouts in the league and the champions league then 80k will sell out every single week. You only have to look at united, they have been and they sell out (most of the time). Also, the ticket prices could be lowered allowing more fans from liverpool to attend the games that maybe do not have the same money as the day trippers. £40 a ticket is a lot, 80k tickets at £28-£35 is still going to be far more. I honestly do NOT under any circumstances think it makes financial and logistical sense to expand Anfield, it sounds like a inconvenient, not very practical quick fix. Where would we play while the stadium was getting sorted? What would we do when (fingers crossed) we get back to the top and a 55k-60k seater is full every week, no one can get a season ticket and the prices are sky high every week? We would be in exactly the same position needing more seats but with £150m spent on he stadium so it can’t be knocked down. Newcastle has a 55k seater stadium near enough sold out every week…Newcastle! Not won or done anything of any significance in half a century! As much as it will break mt heart to see the bulldozers come to Anfield it has to be i’m afraid. Stay at the current anfield the way it is now, spend no money on it until the money is there to finance an 80k seater. End of. I’d much rather renovate Anfield. Grass roots. If we could get up near 60,000 seats then that should still make us competitive. The people on the waiting lists could be facilitated by possibly 50-50 season ticket shares with another person that has waited a similar period? My thoughts only. Please dont shoot me down but there is another ground nearby owned by a cash-strapped club. Wouldnt it make good business sense to seek a groundshare with them until the stadium redevelopment has been finished? I’m sure this will invite flak but from a business prospective it is logical. It is probable this will done in phases. Phases which can be planned and completed between mid-May and mid-August.It’s a matter of having the planning permit’s, the finance, and the right contractor to do the job. Whoever is bold enough to take the contract will have to have the balls to pay a penalty for each day the stand in question is not complete from the start of the PL or any other official competition the Reds are involved in. We need a new stadium Anfield is historical and will allways be that. We get alot of flack from pundits, rival fans etc that we live in the past on our past glories, but atleast we have one but i do understand even tho i dnt like to admit it where they are coming from. We need to move with the times now football has changed vastly over the years and will carry on doing so with many rule changes being implented on the coming years we need to have a bigger stadium to generate more revenue which we will do if we had that opportunity with the amounts of people on the waiting list we would make millions. This new Uefa ruling coming in soon is exactly why we need a bigger stadium. At the end of the day it all comes down to money if we have the money for a new stadium or how much a re-build will cost……YNWA Surely there are some people really hate Liverpool in here. How can you select ‘Do Nothing’ if you are an LFC fan? I have to comment again!!! LFC need to look to the ‘FUTURE’and staying on the old site is the wrong way to go! The area itself is already overcrowded! The club has a monumental opportunity to create something very special for ‘future fans’! Everyone should try to picture a ‘magnificent stadium’ in the absolutely superb location,that is ‘STANLEY PARK’.The present site is obscured by surrounding houses,and is too close to main roads etc: I urge everyone to go and stand in Priory Rd and picture in their minds eye,just how fantastic a new stadium would look there!In open space where it could be seen for many miles around,probably from the motorways! I have all the same memories that other supporters have ever since I started watching the ‘REDS’ as a second division club back in the fifties, but I firmly believe a move to STANLEY PARK is the way forward for ‘OUR GREAT CLUB’.
