this was always going to occur, barring any difficulties, exactly what they did in Boston. Good for Anfield though

Could we be seeing an owner with his head screwed on correctly? Anfield is filled with amazing history and they definitely should not move.

And what exactly is that supposed to mean?
He doesn't understand a thing. Just upping his post-count.

On topic: Yea, it should be good for Anfield. Are they increasing the capacity? If yes, even better

Im sure if they offer to invest into the local community the council will rip their arm off, especially with all the government cuts to councils.

Yes they'll increase capacity, on top of improving hospitality and increasing the amount of corporate boxes etc. Which is where we have been left for dead by United in the last 20 years.

Good for Liverpool fans. Rivalry aside, i have a massive respect for them and love watching Liverpool home games just for the atmosphere. It is even better that they are revamping instead of new stadium. After all the misery, at last good news are coming thick and fast for Liverpool which you lot deserve.

Good. The idea of a new stadium has never interested me, much rather Anfield was revamped. NESV really are listening to the fans.

Can't imagine us in another stadium. Plus these older stadiums have a better (and louder) atmosphere compared to the new ones that are more open.

To be honest dont think it was anything to with listening to the fans, its just how they work, see Boston. Of course he has to look at all options but their preferred course was always refurbishment. Either way, liverpool wins

But their preferred course has always been to refurbish. If it wasnt in the long term interest they wouldn't have agreed to do it
