Earlier today Rick Parry told the Liverpool Echo that the club had chosen to abandon the futuristic plans for a new stadium unveiled with much hype in the summer. In that interview he even used the word “downgraded” to describe the change of plan.
The same interview was later added to the Liverpool FC website – with one subtle difference. As spotted by some Liverpool supporters, the word “downgraded” was made a little more positive, and changed to “different”.
Now who decided to do that?
Parry said “We are now considering two schemes but the stadium will be a 70,000 seater.
“The new stadium will be a significant improvement on the original plans and a slightly downgraded / different version of the new ones.
“And it will be a massive improvement on where we were 12 months ago, if not quite as dramatic as the plans unveiled in the summer.
“The single tier Kop remains fundamental to the design and we are not expecting any delays – it should be on schedule for 2011.”
