Anfield or New Anfield

Recommended Posts

 

Great stuff is an exaggeration, basic stuff I prefer. And yes, cogent accuracy has always been my forte, as is exposing charlatans.;)

 

I doubt you have the bravery to say what you say to my face or not to hide behind a user name. Or do you? So who are you? Front up or fuck off.

 

"A half new/half old Anfield is likely to offer a revised capacity of around 55,000. Of those, half are likely to be premium seats" - your words

Blimey you two!...

 

You can both be right on this one....

 

Of course, this is extremely primitive economics, but you pay off your debts as soon as you can (unless you really believe you can invest that money elsewhere to gain a return higher than your interest rate). But still, the general principle is - if you can invest or pay off debt, pay off!

 

And, paying it off early can also be a sign of concern or at least uncertainty.

 

 

As for the Allianz Arena - I like it, I think it's distinctive and to be frank, impressive.

It might look very dated in 20 years time though. Only time will tell.

Each unto their own of course!

 

Really, it is quite primitive. The 'elsewhere' to invest would surely be the football club? The feasibility of the project should be robust enough to run its course - not rely on cash to reduce debt costs. It either works on the payment schedule or it doesn't - and the return takes a nose dive. The least amount invested in a solid proposal ensures the greatest return at the least risk.

Are they still at it?

 

Fuck me, I stopped checking this thread months ago because they were boring the tits off me.

 

You'd have thought one of them would have got tired of it by now!

 

Nah, they ruined RAWK - even more than usual - so they took their burnt earth policy over here to massage their fucking egos to a new audience. I really wish they would both fuck off back under the RAWK they came from

As you wish - I'm afraid Xerxes can't join me - he was banned from there for his nonsense.

To be fair, getting banned from RAWK isn't the most difficult of challenges.

 

It's hardly a claim to fame...

im new to this thread and frankly i cant be arsed searching through all 94 pages to find an answer to this question. im sure its already been discussed.

 

is the extension of anfield not feasible because of planning issues or because of it not being financially viable? im guessing its planning issues

 

but looking at an aerial photo of the stadium it seems there is plenty of space to utilise. the main and centenary stand have space at the back to extend in to. the anfield road stand needs to be extended over the road behind the stand. it is feasible to do that, the mancs have done it around old trafford. although i accept there are issues involving residents that the mancs didnt have

 

we can build car parking facilities for the whole of the staduim on the back of stanley park next to the car park thats there already. their could also be reception facilities and various amenities built in this area for the public to utilise before heading towards the stands.

 

corporate hospitality situated in the rebuilt main and centenary stands and a massive (as big as possible) extension in seating in the anfield rd stand. the kop unfortunately looks landlocked unless its possible to go upwards.cant see the local authority allowing the club to build over a main rd.

 

 

ive no idea what it would cost or even if it financially viable, but im sure we are all in agreement we need to bite the bullet and do one thing or the other (extend or move) in an attempt to stay with the elite group of teams.

I know Lance, it would be fucking unreal but it wont happen will it?!

 

If Ayre has pulled off a new stadium naming rights deal I will forgive him for last seasons fuck ups on the basis that he had more important things on his mind.

 

I am daring to hope!

If a new stadium and naming rights is announced I’d feel really positive about the future. Maybe a refurbishment is the most practical/ sensible way to go – but isn’t that what has dragged the club back the last 20 years – going for the safe option?

Somebody mentioned Liverpool’s YearZero – a fresh start, and everything that goes with it is probably what the club needs. For too long we’ve looked back – and instead of using it as a force for good, and being proactive, have wallowed in it and not progressed.

Its a reboot of the whole club

 

I hope its a new ground, it'd be so good for everyone if we could just get it fucking built

 

Completely agree is a huge psychological boost... "finally kicking off the new Liverpool project".

 

But the same issues still exists - how viable it is?

And, 5 years from now, people could be screaming about paying off the crazy stadium debt instead of buying players... same ole, same ole.

 

Oh for a crystal ball eh?

 

If Mr Rodgers delivers you back to Europe a couple of years on the trot, I think it will tip the balance and you'll move, building a stadium to rival the Emirates. 5 years away?

Any move is predicated on commercial viability.

 

This is more about whether FSG are prepared to commit to the club - as Mansour has done at City with the Ethiad regeneration plans, Arsenal have done at the Emirates and Man u did over the period of over a decade, two decades ago.

 

A new, or half new/half old. stadium simply cannot wait another five years. Arsenal and Man u are pulling in £60m a year more than us at the gate (£300m over that five year period) and Mansour/Abrahamovic are already several hundreds of milions ahead of us in team investment. With stadium work being outside FFP, but revenue being on it, it is the ONLY trump card we have over our competitors, all other areas of revenue growth are open to all.

    • Interesting but not particularly surprising to me the demographics in that article matching up with The demographics in a similar report on whether a European super league is a good idea.   In both, younger fans; and Chelsea and Arsenal fans think a super league is good, and so is VAR.   in both, older; and Liverpool fans think VAR is bad and so would be a European super league.
         
    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane
