Liverpool fans have been reacting to the news that American football could be played at Anfield in the future once the latest stadium development is completed.
The club rolled on with the next stage of their Anfield Road project by revealing images of the all-new 16,000 seated stand, which would raise the total stadium capacity up to 61,000.
