When we started the shop back in 2010 there was a lot of buzz about a new stadium at Stanley Park.  As history buffs we were excited with something big and bold but also sad to think of a life without Anfield.  We even thought would our shop name make sense if there wasn’t an “Anfield”?  When John Henry and the gang took over the reigns of the club and mentioned that they instead wanted to redevelop the historic ground we were elated.  And having seen the Fenway Park improvements we knew that it would be done incredibly well.

This weekend marks the first home match of the season with the new stand, with reigning Premier League Champions Leicester City visiting the new Fortress Anfield.  From all accounts and photos we’ve seen it looks stunning.  Can’t wait to see the crowds and hear the noise.

Headed to Anfield soon?  Give us a shout in the comments and let us know what you thought.
