Gary Neville recently criticized the atmosphere at Anfield during a Liverpool vs Manchester United match, calling it the worst he had ever experienced. In response, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called for more support from fans ahead of their Premier League game against Arsenal. Klopp expressed his dissatisfaction with the atmosphere created by the home supporters during Liverpool’s 5-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final win over West Ham. He urged the fans to generate a much bigger noise for the upcoming game against Arsenal. Klopp emphasized the importance of Anfield being lively and supportive from the first second of the match. He even suggested that if fans are not in the right mindset, they should give their tickets to someone else who is.

These comments from Klopp and Neville come despite the increased capacity at Anfield due to the expansion of the Anfield Road Stand. The recent Liverpool vs Manchester United match saw the highest attendance at Anfield since 1963, with 57,158 fans in attendance. There were even more fans present for Liverpool’s cup victory, with 57,332 spectators. However, Liverpool supporters’ union Spirit of Shankly has expressed concerns over the difficulty for younger fans to obtain tickets and the high prices. They believe that the culture and atmosphere of Anfield are being diluted by corporate offerings and expensive ticket prices. They are in constant dialogue with the club to find ways to improve the situation and allow more young supporters to experience Anfield.

After the goalless draw between Liverpool and Manchester United, Neville suggested that over-confidence may have contributed to the underwhelming atmosphere. He remarked that it was the quietest crowd he had ever seen for a Liverpool vs Manchester United game at Anfield.

Overall, there are concerns about the atmosphere at Anfield during important matches and the limited opportunities for young fans to attend games. Klopp and Neville’s comments have sparked a discussion about the need for fan support and the accessibility of tickets. The Liverpool supporters’ union is actively working with the club to address these issues and preserve the unique atmosphere at Anfield.
