Trip To Turf Moor

Liverpool will not be facing Burnley at Anfield on Saturday afternoon as the original fixture list dictated, instead the Reds are off to Turf Moor after a deal was agreed to switch the home and away ties due to the stadium redevelopment.

If, like me you haven't been keeping completely up to speed with the redevelopment, here's a quick run down.

The expansion of the Main Stand began in May 2016 and the project has seen an extra 8,500 seats added taking Anfield's total capacity up to approximately 54,000. The movement or expansion of Anfield has been a long time in the making, partly thanks to our disingenuous previous owners Hicks and Gillett with their "spade in the ground" nonsense but also thanks to a tough process of brokering a deal with the local council and homeowners.

In the end, it was agreed the expansion would go ahead. I don't get up to Liverpool and/or Anfield anywhere near as much as I would like as many of you know but I was up there in February…
