I think at best in the next few years you might get to standing sections but I doubt we will see a return to an era where large sections of the ground are standing.

I think that there is a potential revenue problem for the club, in business terms seating is a more high value product. Clubs aren't going to reduce their revenue by charging less to allow people to stand, the way around that is to put seating prices up which won't be popular. The way around this is by going to a ratio above 1:1 but there are other factors here such as the max capacity based on fire regulations and local infrastructure. The suggestion that Anfield can't go beyond the 60k capacity unless roads are improved or train line is reopened etc are likely to be issues for alot of clubs.
