It has been more than 9 years since plans to build a new stadium at Stadium to replace the limited seating capacity at were initiated in May 2002. However, a final decision is yet to be made due to a number of reasons, including lack of funding by Moores, economic crises in 2008 (yeah H&G, like we all believed that lie) and ’s preference for remaining at and redeveloping Anfield due to its history and economical benefits.

However, redeveloping Anfield appears to be heading to a dead end. , Liverpool Club’s managing director stated in July 2011:

“However, with land/property acquisition, environmental and statutory issues creating barriers to our ambition, it looks increasingly unlikely there is any way we can move forward on a refurbishment of Anfield unless there are significant changes in those areas”

Liverpool’s city council leader Joe Anderson later clarified the land/property acquisition, environmental and statutory issues as blockage of daylight to nearby homes due to extra height of extended stands and legal issues regarding compulsory purchase order (CPO) for the houses! I wonder if a petition has already been raised to T?whirim?tea, god of weather, regarding increase of daylight for the city during the winter period.

This ultimately means that John Henry & co. need to redevelop Anfield without increasing the height or parameter of the stadium. Mission impossible? Well below are some of the innovative ideas that could be considered (brainstormed ideas rather than thoroughly prepared plans).

    There are no such restrictions at the Anfield Rd end. It could easily be made larger than the Kop with Anfield Road actually running under it. That, along with modernisation of the Main Stand could easily increase capacity to 60,000+

      No, the article is written in good English, he must be a knowledgeable person. Actually, he don’t have any idea on structural engineering. To add another layer, Anfield needs to be dug at least 10 metres vertically other wise the pitch has to be narrowed by around 10 mts. in all 4 boundary.

      The glass top is praiseworthy for innovativeness. No flat glass plate of 110 X 75 mt. can sustain even own load at the G points, let alone carry 3,000 person (over 200 tons. & laying on bally to see a game from top..

      We need a new stadium, plain & simple; & that must be over 80,000+ provisional capacity. To build any stadium over 40,000+ capacity ‘ll cost around 300mn, adding next 40,000 should not cost more than another 100mn. I don’t mind watching my team at Apple arena, Toyota garden, Standard Chartered Stadium or Mobil Bowl

      Richard, there is always a time when the weirdos come out of the woodwork and this article seems to prove it. Mind you it gives you a laugh on a very rainy day here in Cornwall! I look forward to more “brains” getting to grips with the idea…
