As new stadiums go, that's going to be the best in the country by a mile. The standalone kop is a great idea and actually looks steeper than the current one from the renders. The pitch seems miles away at the sides, but I suppose you have to expect that these days.

correct me if i'm wrong, but its my belief that that this stand is supposed to recreate the atmosphere of the old kop

the old kop was standing room, if they want to recreate it, why not challenge the taylor report to try and bring standing room back to anfield
its going to seat about 18,000 so you could probably get about 25,000 people standing there, which would be awesome
of course put seats in for any games which require seating (much like at dortmund)
"We've also recognised the central importance of the Kop. It will have a significantly increased capacity of 18,000 seats in a single tier structure that will be the heartbeat of the new stadium. The rake of the stand will be steeper and the seats tighter together, with the acoustics of the roof designed to accentuate the atmosphere during games."

Bloody hell, didn't realise the new kop hold's 18,000. that's as much as the current one when it was standing isn't it? the more I see of this stadium, the better it gets. Congratulations Liverpool.

Only when The Kop was reduced to 16,500 post Hillsborough. Before that it had been 21,500 (late 70's to '89), 24,000 and 28,000!

I think The Kop should wrap around at the lower levels more than is planned, it's a nonsense the The Kop is stand alone - it never was, it always had a dramatic 'draining' sweep into the Main Stand and Kemlyn.

in this day and age its much safer with all seaters, my brother was at a liverpool game as kid during terraces and when a goal is scored everyone surges forward and he was trapped against one of the bars against his neck, back then there wasn't the ammount of women and kids at matches as there are now, so i think it should stay as it is, 18k kop is plenty anyway.

There's a big difference though between standing terraces of pre-Hillsborough though and the sort that are very popular in the Bundesliga now,

The Kop's last stand


Bremen standing/seated section

read the rest of this thread (and the one in the Liverpool Metro forum) for updates on the new ground! Planning permission should be approved next month and demolotion has already begun around Stanley Park in preperation for development.

What's wrong with the standing sections in German grounds then? think its a great idea myself.

the woman and children can go to the seated sections
i only want a section of stadiums to have standing room (maybe 1/4 capacity)

The projected cost of building Liverpool Football Club's new stadium has rocketed to "at least £400m".
The news of the £150m hike comes from the club's co-owner Tom Hicks, who together with fellow American George Gillett took over the club in March.

The Stanley Park stadium will have a capacity of 60,000 - 15,000 more than Anfield - when it opens, but that could increase to 75,000 in the future.

Plans go before planners at the city council on 5 November.

Mr Hicks said he was not worried about the radically revised figures: "I'm so excited about the new stadium because we'll be able to go do things for the fans we've never been able to do for them.

"Our fans are wonderful and over time we'll be able to give them the amenities, comfort

Liverpool Football Club's plans for a new £400m stadium have been passed.
The 60,000 capacity ground at Stanley Park has been unanimously approved by Liverpool City Council planning committee, after a five hour meeting.

The premiership club's new stadium will hold 15,000 more fans than the existing site, but that could increase to 75,000 in the future.

The plan was resubmitted to planners after American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett were unhappy with them.
