Friends Of Liverpool

So Liverpool FC are staying at Anfield, opting to expand the Ground rather than going for a complete new build at Stanley Park.

Pragmatists are John Henry and Tom Werner.

Rather than sink Liverpool into deep debt again, they have taken the cost-effective decision of expanding the Main Stand and the Anfield road stand to begin with, adding 15,000 seats to bring the fabled ground’s capacity to 60,000 every match day.

Of course the plan is dependant on local residents being willing to relocate away from the near environs of the current Stadium so that work can commence on the rebuilding of Liverpool’s famous ground.

Its a shame that planning permission won’t be applied for until next Summer and assuming that is successfully granted, the building work won’t start until 2014.
