Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

I keep saying "WOW", but I just love the new main stand:

Taken from:

‘Transformational’ vision revealed as part of £260m Anfield plans

http://www.insidermedia.com/insider/northwest/transformational-vision-revealed-as-part-of-260m-anfield-plans

"Liverpool City Council has unveiled its vision for Walton Breck Road – the main thoroughfare in the neighbourhood.

The new high street would see scores of derelict buildings demolished or rebuilt, while the road could be narrowed to create wider pavements.
"

I wonder if it's likely or even possible that the area behind the Kop could be enlarged in order for us to extend the Kop at some point. It would be great to see the Kop brought back into 'scale' with the rest of the ground once the Main and Anfield Road stands have been re-developed.

like you Tes, I love the new Anfield.

unlike every other big ground in the country (and indeed Europe), we have stayed loyal to what a football stadium historically was supposed to look like.

We have ignored shiny spaceship designs - and it has paid off.

As for Kop expansion.

If there is sufficient demand in the future, e.g. say in 10 or 15 years time, I would imagine the next logical move would be expansion of the Kop and/or the Centenary stand.  I don't know the logistics, but it would seem natural.

I'd like,like you do too, to see the other two stands in scale with the new stands.

When you see the artist's impression of how the new stand fits in to the proposed redevelopment, it just emphasises even more what a great design it is. It looks perfectly in keeping with updated surroundings, not dated, and when you see it on it's own it looks neither space age or old fashioned. It's not going to look dated and stuck in time like the bowls other clubs have built are already starting to look.
It's classic and timeless. It suits who we are as a club, and the city of Liverpool as a city.

Thankfully we never had that escapee from 'Space 1999' built.

agreed, Tes.

other clubs efforts look stuck in time as soon as they have been built.

UFO designs owe much to the corporate soulless era we find ourselves in.

thankfully we have gone a different route.

here's another image.

wow, is that high, or is that high.

need a head for heights - as well as parachutes and binoculars

maybe have a zip-line - another money earner for the yanks.

Dude, both images are visible.

The new Main stand is truely impressive, and I much prefer the design of 4 'obvious' stands, that each have their own 'character' as such, than just a continuous oval of seats circling the pitch.

Reposted it, just because it's that good.

It's a shame we've lost the 'Paddock' aspect of the Main stand as I always liked that particular characteristic, but with all the legislation now around the angles of slant of seating areas, I guess it would have been impossible to incorporate it and still achieve a buildable structure that also gave the required capacity and allowed inclusion of everything needed beneath the stand.

strange

Tes, the image that I posted - twice - is not visible on my screen.

Nor is your posting of that same image visible either.

Bizarre.

I see all the other images here - I wonder is my browser blocking that site's images.

Possibly.

agreed.

with 4 obvious stands,  Anfield retains character.

as opposed to a plastic mould look.....UFO spaceship look.

I don't like places like Wembley or the Emirates.....look the same to me. 

Great shame - cause I loved the old Wembley - and the twin towers.
