Ed2 just saw an article about a new train service to the ground. Would this be enough to see the expansion of the ground?

{Ed002's Note - Expanding the ground costs enormous sums of money that take years and years to recover. I don't know about the train service, but Liverpool cannot expand beyond 60k without paying to improve the infrastructure.}

I live right next to Old Trafford, I mean I could almost throw something at it from here and if there's one thing I'm envious of it's the surrounding infrastructure. A dedicated train station, 3, soon to be 4 nearby tram stops and as much parking as I've seen for a stadium in the surrounding area.

Now some of this is down to the City, there's much more going on around and beyond Old Trafford than at Anfield so it's in the City's best interests to improve the infrastructure but even just a single train station would improve things massively in my opinion for Anfield.

We have to have a long term plan to get the stadium to the levels of Utd, City, Spurs and Arsenal in order to generate revenue to keep competing.

Appreciate that's a lot of investment but we can't sit still.

{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to do any such thing and the revenue from it is small.}

How do you manage to live there IronDan? I only work in Manc city centre and even that's too close to the 'Theatre Of Dreams' for my liking.

Johnnyr1970, I think IronDan is happy enough there as he can throw things at it. Lol.

I think IronDan meant to say he lives within spitting distance of OT 😀.

I went to Anfield today for a mooch round the tour with the kids whilst it was raining. I had a look at Anfield Rd and the area behind it, could easily fit another massive Stand there like the main one. I agree though, no train stations, minimal parking and absolutely nothing there other than the stadium. It's miles behind. But then on the flip side, it's a scary place for other teams, there's no TGI's and all that friendly vibes. probably why we have a better home record than the other lot.

Spot on lfcb. It is an intimidating stadium for travelling fans and when playing the big pampered sides I think it shakes them up.

No way do I want to share a stadium with Everton. If a new stadium is built give it to them. Anfield has too many memories, both happy and devastatingly sad. YNWA 96.
