No fans have been allowed to attend the Blues' home games since 2,000 watched the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Manchester United but Liverpool's Ground Safety Advisory Group agreed today that both Everton and Liverpool can safely host up to 6,500 and 10,000 people respectively for their final home fixtures of the season.
Everton have a ballot underway to decide which season ticket holders can attend the Wolves match; no away fans will be permitted at Premier League grounds until next season at the earliest.

We were terrible and so were the crowds at the time, barely 15,000 even for a Saturday 3pm league game. The gloom deepened as Coventry took the lead early in the second half. We looked like we'd never score but two goals in the last 3 minutes and Graeme Sharp's winner was greeted by a massive roar. One of those ones where the sound on the telly goes all funny!
8,900 fans pushing for a last minute winner can make a hell of a lot more noise than 40,000 comatose fans during a dull match.

It was Peter Reid coming on as a sub that changed the match. A certain man called Sam was their centre-half that night.

Probably double that amount in the ground – announced attendances were a joke in those days – the tax dodging monkeys.
When capacity was 52k and the place chocca, the announcer would sheepishly say "Today's attendance was 32k" begging the question how you could get another 20k into a few vacant seats in the Bullens Road and Main Stands?
