Looks a bit good. Mind you, from what I've read they've gone a bit Leeds plc and basically scraped in anything they could to finance it. Sure there's a good business model behind it but you never know, they could come to regret it in a few years. I'm not jealous of it - I want to stay at anfield and the longer the inevitable move is held off the happier I am.

While I would ideally like to stay at Anfield, the realities of modern football are that to compete over the long terms (say the next 10 years) we need to generate a lot more revenue. The obvious way is to have a bigger ground.

Big stadium or not. The place was still like a library for Dennis' day.

Unfortunately I didn't fancy coming from Australia to watch it. But I could hear when they DID sing. But it was still like a library like Highbury is most of the time.
