The Main stand feels better leg wise than it used to do....maybe it is just the seats that are better.

As for safe standing, there is still no confirmation that will be allowed, so you can't really take that into attendance figures.

Heard Eddie Hearn saying that he's in talks with LFC over a Callum Smith fight at Anfield in May or June.

There's a ridiculous amount of leg room in the new stand, probably down to h&s regulations. Probably could have got 3-4 thousand extra seats in there if they'd been able to cram them in like the SKD.

Article here on the Annie from the This is Anfield website. Not sure how reliable they are, tough:



Anfield Train Station Could Aid New Stand

Last month saw the existing planning application for the new Anfield Road end expire, and a new application isn’t expected to be submitted until next year.

We’ve long known that this will be the case, with FSG revising initial plans for the stand and ensuring the new overall capacity is over 60,000.

One thing that could aid the redevelopment is a new train station near to the famous stadium, something that the city council are looking into.

Regarding the new stand itself, The Athletic‘s James Pearce reports that “having it completed for the 2022/23 season is understood to be the best-case scenario.”

Pearce adds that “a number of potential designs [are] still under consideration.”


Fresh planning application will be submitted to Liverpool City Council at some point next year, as the club try and make Anfield an even more intimidating place to visit.

Liverpool are lucky they have a City Council that wants to help

The council don't really want to help but have been subjected to redshite pressure: the Rand corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people, under the supervision of the reverse vampires, are forcing Big Fat Joe to tow the line and help build this monstrosity. Through the looking-glass, indeed.
