There are few places in the world of sport quite like Anfield. Sure, there are atmospheres around there as loud and rowdy but there are few grounds where you can truly feel the crowd sucking the ball into the net the way that the Kop does. The magic of The Reds’ hallowed turf isn’t lost on Guillem Balague as he has waxed lyrical about Anfield in a recent interview.

Guillem Balague is a stalwart of punditry.

The Spanish journalist has been a regular feature on Sky Sports for years now, fronting the Revista de La Liga as well as being a prominent writer in a number of British and Spanish newspapers.

He also earned critical acclaim for his book A Season on the Brink about Rafa Benitez’s famous debut season with Liverpool.

The media figure was recently interviewed by The Redmen TV (follow and subscribe, they put out fantastic content), during the interview Guillem Balague took the time to discuss the magic of Anfield:

“There are things that are not easy to comprehend. And what happens at Anfield, is not easy to comprehend. It means to be part of something special, it’s like a drug, you want it again”

 

What RTK has to say

You just don’t forget your first trip Anfield, much less the special nights you are lucky to attend.

When you have been there with the Kop in full voice, watching the opposition melt away before your eyes as a result, there’s just nothing like it.

Liverpool are lucky to still have Anfield and the intangible benefits it bestows on the team, it is unique in its influence on the pitch, as Balague puts it – it is ‘not easy to comprehend’.

Thankfully we have decided to expand the stadium rather than building a new one, we will keep getting bigger, louder and more intimidating.
