There was an episode of 'Secret Millionaire' around Anfield and it did look bleak.

Liverpool and Everton are both looking to have new stadia, so I believe.

Here's a thought- share one. If Inter and AC Milan can do it why not the Reds and Blues?

It might be the boot up the backside this city needs.

That would be fantastic. My hometown had a league and non-league side who both insisted on keeping their own grounds. Both are now owned by property speculators.

Although such streets can be found across Liverpool, especially since the Pathfinder Scheme lost funding, I suspect the ones around Anfield Stadium were compulsory purchased as part of a wider stadium development that seems to be permanently delayed.

I see nothing wrong with dreams as long as you are aware of the harsh realities of current life there. You should do some in depth researching before ever considering such a move. I suppose it would still be ok if you happened to be wealthy. That was an Interesting article on Liverpool, thanks for posting the link.

I'd wager there are some people in the UK that like and follow American football and haven't been to their favorite teams hometown. There's nothing really wrong with that.

People have had pipe dreams long before the internet became a household item. People searching for their own utopia, reading and seeing photos of what to them might seem the perfect place to live. A few make the journey, for the rest if it helps to make the present more bearable through a bit of escapism whats the harm.

I like Liverpool city, as the people are very friendly there. Its ample history makes it a perfect destination to explore Englandís vast culture. Liverpool is cheaper than London.
