Liverpool fans react to Anfield expansion update

Given that Liverpool are arguably the best team in the world right now – they are the Club World Cup champions after all – you would expect them to have a stadium to match their on-field exploits.

However, although Anfield has been rightly hailed by managers like Pep Guardiola for its atmosphere, it still lags behind in terms of capacity. With a possible highest attendance of 54,074, that only puts them fifth on the list of grounds in England (sixth if you include Wembley), whilst it is only 38th in the whole of the continent.

Much harder than you’d think… Can you name Liverpool’s top scorers for each of these 25 seasons?

Who was Liverpool's top scorer in the 1992/93 season?

That will change by the 2022/23 season, though. It has been reported that the planned expansion will be finished by then, with an extra 7,038 seats to be added. That will take the capacity to over 61,000.

Dave O’Connell shared the news on his Twitter page, as you can see below.

This has got the fans reacting in their droves, and a couple seemed delighted by the update.

This is exactly what the Merseyside outfit need to take them to the next level – a stadium to rival some of the biggest and best in terms of capacity.

Not everyone is that positive, though. There are some who believe the increase in seats is not enough.

Slowly but surely, Liverpool fans. This is a step in the right direction, but it is almost impossible to add an extra 20,000-30,000 seats in one go. These things take time.

Others don’t believe this will make it any easier to get tickets.

It’s no wonder it is so difficult to see Liverpool live at Anfield – it is probably one of the hottest tickets in world football right now.
