let the poaching begin...how desperate lol
+2
Desperate? You're just bitter about Cech :P
+1
With hindsight, the Liverpool board must regret not making the top ticket price £90.
+5
Lol they're going to raise prices to £95 just to be safe
+1
YNWA. They all leave in the 77th minute. It's just poor Kloppski who rides it alone.
Ayre said: “If you look at £77 as a ticket price and want to walk out on 77 minutes then it is everybody’s right to make that decision.

“But what I would say to fans who are not sure and are thinking about it is: ‘read the facts’. £77 is guiding people in the wrong direction.

“It is 200 tickets for six games a season - the best seats in the newest stand in the country. It is less than half a per cent of the total capacity. That’s not the headline."


wait, thats what they are protesting? omg
+1
Take the piss all you'd like. The fans weren't the ones on the pitch with the shoddy defending problems, this has been happening on multiple occasions before the protest.

Local loyal Liverpool fans are being priced out so FSG can make an additional two million pounds a year extra. Merseyside is a working class blue collar city, they're being treated as customers, not fans.

200 tickets... Anfield gets several hundred spectators every game, who have traveled long distance (many from overseas, Scandinavia in particular) to come and watch the team. If those who cant attend on a regular basis want to pay extra for great seats, then what's the big deal.
But buying your ticket and then walk out on the team is poor supporting. Something Klopp also addressed a few weeks ago. The lucky ones who've got tickets got to be there and support the team through every match.
+1
Protest the ticket prices the way you want, but to me the most effective way seems to be to not buy the tickets in the first place.
I do think that clubs in general should try to keep it affordable for their core fans, which should be possible with all the increased TV deals. However, I agree with Joey - don't buy tickets at all if you want to make an effective protest. Don't do it by punishing the team and deny other fans the chance to be there for the full 90.

Dan, if i were in charge of liverpool, i would certainly change the prices back. all this fuss over an extra £18 for 1200 tickets over the course of an entire season? are you kidding me? that's embarrassing - for both fans and liverpool adminstration. just strike down the policy, there's no way that extra increase in ticket prices changes anything at all in terms of balancing the books. but i have to say fans moaning about this specific price hike, which only affects 200 tickets over 6 games each in your new stand, complaining about being priced out over this is just nonsense.
A lot easier SAID THAN DONE isn't it? The thing is you aren't in charge of Liverpool. The fans just making a fuss huh? Embarrassing that fans are standing up to price hikes despite new TV right deals worth huge sums of money? I don't think you're looking at this in a rational point of view. You have your opinion also which is fine. Though regulars in the Main Stand, their season tickets are rising from £869 to £1,029. So should they wish to sit in the same place next season and not pay that price they will lose that status of season ticket holder, and someone else will take it. Some of these people have been STH for over 25+ years. Football fans in general need to be treated like supporters and not customers.
While I quite agree with that sentiment, the problem is that football clubs today basically have to be run as businesses - to keep up with fans' expectations.

As a side note, I remember how Fulham fans gave Mohammed Al-Fayed hell about plonking a statue of Michael Jackson outside the grounds. But the club owner who pours money into the club is free to make their decisions of how they run their club/business. Eventually, Al-Fayed took his bag of money and left and Fulham soon disappeared from the Premiership.
+1
but dan, that's not what ayre is saying. he said 200 tickets for 6 matches were going up from 59 to 77 pound. thats 18*6 = 108 pound extra. all those seats are for the people located in the new stand. it's a lot of money for some, but someone else should be able to pay it -especially given it's in the best seats in the house. no one's entitled to a seat at anfield so if you cant pay, someone else will. harsh but thats my take, if it was more people being affected i would feel differently, but i don't think overall it's enough to make such a big deal about it.

now i'm not saying people shouldn't protest, but i'm saying i don't personally think it's that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. protesters are within their rights to complain, and i would field aggrieved in their situation as well if i could not afford my season ticket.
+2
Yh at first I supported the liverpool fans, but then found out the whole story and its not much to get worked up about imo.

"It’s clear that the club’s decision to raise some lower main stand seats to £77 isn’t sitting well with many supporters, but in all the noise, that more than half the seats at Anfield will either have their prices frozen next season of see a decrease—with a full 45% of tickets getting cheaper—has sometimes been lost."

^ and thats from a Liverpool blog mind you.
+2
lol im surprised no one called me out on my math xD
^^ good call bluff. This whole thing is ridiculous, football tickets are a privilege, not a right. And it's a business where the owners want to make money on the huge investment they made into a football team instead of investing that money elsewhere.

It will be funny when the same fans that cried about this will be hopeful in the summer that the owners will splash cash in the transfer market.

and good point above SIF, if they raised the lowest ticket price way more than a standard inflation increase that would be one thing, but nobody has the right to the best seats. If they won't pay then somebody else will fill the seat

When you chat sheet, you know what happen next. (banter only)
+1
And most of you guys were against me saying Leicester are the real deal a month or two ago. "once Vardy and Mahrez get injured, season over." We've seen dips in form on Vardy and Mahrez and just then that's when their defense actually starting winning them games.
+4
I hold my hands up and say I was wrong! I'm sure I'm not alone.
+4
I was with Shaymoose on this one. I recall somewhere discussing on supposedly tough set of fixtures that Leicester will get found out(not many thought that it would be tough for the other teams as well). TBF was more talking about them being in top-3 or 4, not leading the league in late feb!

1-1 for the Dembele gaffe, Paddy. :D

Well they beat and tied stoke already so they're Real Title Contenders!
+1
Haha true mate. Although me and Townsend puts you in the lead I think
They're bloody unreal. The title is theirs to lose now.
+1
It's their only competition while the other top teams are still involved in others...Also other than playing Arsenal next gameweek the only other team in the mix is United left to play. They just have to keep up outscoring these mid/bottom teams. I think teams next season may park the bus on them. Everything is about their counter, best in the league easily.
+1
The way we outplayed them was through the width of our full backs and having dier sweeping up. If we'd have had Dembele playing we definitely would have won.
+1
Well next time you'll have 2 Dembele's so no excuses :P
Leicester are actually going to win it. What the actual heeeeeeell
+7
Leicester!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
+3
Aguero and Koeman win the January POTM and MOTM, respectively.

Congrats to both.
+3
Aaaaaaaaand Arsenal in 4th spot.

:-|
+3
"I fight for what is rightfully mine"
+6
Aaaaaand Tottenham are dreaming of title glory.

Aaaaaand the City are expected to win the title.

Aaaaaand Leicester are playing one match at a time and doesn't care.

I think that sums it up.
+1
Aaaaaaand then?
+2
aaaaand now it's an all manchester affair in the fight for 4th
+2
Don't count us out so soon Peter! haha Pretty sure history tells us we are favorites.
+2
Claudio Ranieri, the true special one?
+1
The amazing one. I think he fights crime at night.
+10
Well he is apart of the Barclays Premier League, saviours of the world football. Without the Premier League the world would come to an end as we know it.
Interestingly he has not won a league in-spite of managing 16 clubs over a period of 30 years...Hopefully he can make it this season.
In fact he's another one the special one called a failure.

Ranieri is the wise one. He didn't upset the club. He had a holistic effect like when Pellegrini took over
+1
Feckin disgusting! Shame on you Man City!

Shame on you Spurs !!!

See what i did there ?
+2
For you to even begin to compare those two incidents Malik shows that those siestas are slowing your mind.
+3
No comparison whatsoever!
+1
Not comparable at all
Absolutely sickening to verbally abuse a child in this way. Shame on those people!

@Malik it's true all fan bases have some despicable fans but let's not compare different stories to this one since the original poster was sharing a story about some so called 'fans'.
+1
From the same match

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/manchester-city-fans-attack-everton-7270801

Luckily not all Man City fans are like this but these people should be BANNED for such acts.
Wow, wow, wow, not even shame on them, they should be shot. Fkn lunatics amped up on alcohol, and stewards doing fk all. Disgusting.

Those aren't Manchester City fans, or football fans whatsover, those are just some sick, twisted bastards. But more shame on those gutless stewards.

"Luckily not all Man City fans are like"

Don't need to write that sentance at all imo, not many human biengs are like that i'd say. Just the kinds that are mentally ill or just plain mentally retarded.
+1
Right, just wanted to clarify so people don't think I'm making a sweeping generalization of City fans.
no one wants liability at this kind of population level but then again telling that to his face doesn't solve the problem.
I didn't compare both incident what I objected to was northstream's shaming man city as whole.

They could haven't prevented this idiots and certainly didn't knew what they were upto before hand , at best what city as club can do is to help identify them , corporate with authority & place a stadium ban on them.

How would you guys feel if I shame spurs as a club or Chelsea as a club for acts of idiots that call themselves their fans ?
+1
I can tell you what would have happened at White Hart Lane. If a small group cause offense they'll be removed immediately and they won't be coming back again - ever. Spurs was in fact the first club that set up the system where you can text the row/seat numbers if any problems to security. They will instantly have cameras on the spot and guards to come and sort it out.

The Premier League has since pretty much been cleaned up of the most disgusting behavior we saw in England in past decades. Other places in Europe still have some very bad elements, incl in the Dutch Eredivisie. An Italian friend of mine (keen Sampdoria fan) who lives in Amsterdam, won't take his kid to Eredivisie games but travels across to England instead, where it's now great for families and kids to attend.
+3
i think we can all agree that these type of a--holes don't represent any particular fanbase, they're just a--holes.
Lol no offense northstream it was a stupid post to begin with...this is why i dont use ft as often in the past 2 years...stupid posts like this
Malik is spot on
Not everyone on here is mature enough to understand what grown-ups talk about. Don't think too hard about it.
+1
read your post again, then you will realise how "grown up" you really are lol...
