“Meat, pie, sausage roll, come on England, giz a goal”

There’s something gloriously romantic and nostalgic about eating a pie at a football ground; it feels like you’re following in the footsteps of almost 150 years of footballing history.

Well, at least until clubs starting charging exorbitant prices for what is (probably) a horse-meat laden monstrosity!

But, we are supposedly looking to rectify the recent trend of culinary abominations as we launch a new competition.

That’s right – to commemorate the opening of our new Main Stand in a couple of months, we’ve asked our fans to create a matchday pie that’ll be sold inside the ground. Because how else would you celebrate the end of the construction?!

Dahoud update

According to the official site, we shifted a cholesterol-inducing 87,000 pies during home games last season.

In a statement, Paul Cuttill, one of our general managers, said he hoped the new pie would “form part of an improved food offering at Anfield.”

Good luck with that…
