    The Michigan grad in me loves the idea of a 108,000 seat Anfield.

    No I wouldn't like that personally. Imagine the queues at the club shop when I'm trying to buy my half and half match scarf. ;-)

    Well, I think restricting capacity to 108,000 shows a deplorable lack of ambition. Why, increasing capacity by a further, and some might say paltry 7000 seats would give us the highest capacity football stadium in the world.

    Better still raise the bar even higher and go for 125,000.:well done:

    The compulsory attendance, necessary to ensure the stadium is always filled to capacity, might not go down that well in all circles. However, given that by the time you've exited the stadium it will time to queue to get back in for the next match, it shouldn't be too difficult to enforce.:shocked:

    One of the cool things about Michigan Stadium, now 115k but ~106k when I was there, is that Ann Arbor (pop. ~115k) becomes the second largest city in Michigan 6-8 Saturdays every year. Liverpool could crack the Top 5 in the UK!

    Probably about right about the realities of it, but the idea of hearing 108k LFC fans roaring as one when Coutinho hit that goal in the derby sends shivers up my spine. What a moment that would be...

    Liverpool FC are delighted to announce Anfield's Centenary Stand is to be renamed The Kenny Dalglish Stand in recognition of the 66-year-old's unique contribution to the club.

    The decision has been taken by the Reds’ ownership, led by principal owner John W Henry, to honour the special status Dalglish holds at Anfield in the club’s 125th anniversary year.

    Great idea, though I think if it was named the

    Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish Stand

    it would sound even more impressive.

    They kept us at Anfield, for that alone I'm eternally grateful to them (just to add a little whinge though...wish the old tunnel could have been largely emulated as we lost something very special. The new tunnel is mundane and the sign doesn't have the same prominence it should).

    What an incredible tribute to Kenny. It must be very emotional for him today.

    It probably won't happen but I honestly wouldn't mind whole stadium being renamed after him. Words can't express how much I love that man, this is the least club could have done to acknowledge his years of service and leadership. I live to feel again how I felt when I saw him walking out of Old Trafford tunnel on the day of his return, for someone who hasn't witnessed him playing, that was worth a top trophy, it honestly made me feel like it did when we won CL.

    Knowing Dalglish, he would probably cringed and tell them to change it back. A man who always put the club needs above his. Shankly Gate, Paisley Gateway and now Kenny Dalglish Stand. Is there a grill we can name after Rodgers?

    The Brendan Rodgers portrait of Brendan Rodgers! Touch it on your way out of the tunnel before matches. They say they teeth will bring you good luck.

    Turned my alma mater around. Met him a few times...never a dull moment.

    Anyway, back to far more important matters...couldn't be happier for the King. He drew me to the Reds even though I lived thousands of miles away. My favorite moment to this day is seeing him on TV while YNWA plays all around him.

    I started following LFC, coz of Gerrard and I am an absolute fan of his.
    But Dalglish is in a place in my heart, where Gerrard can't even get close by.
    I am still mad at FSG for firing him, but I am happy that FSG had some sense finally to honor the great man.

    Don't wish to seem churlish but ... at the time time the revamped Kemlyn Road Stand was renamed the Centenary Stand, I think the club missed a trick in not naming it the Bob Paisley or Bill Shankly Stand. I'm still hoping that the Main Stand will be named after one of them with the other having the ARE named after him.

    Don't get me wrong though. It's a wonderful decision by the owners and absolutely the right thing to do.

    They have the gates and statue, no more is needed.

    Agree that the gates and statue are enough. It's an unfortunate sign of the times but the Main Stand is no doubt going to have a corporate sponsor..... it's a necessity if it brings in enough money to sign a player or 2 each year.....

    The Carlsberg Stand?!?
