tickets went up last season too. which because they'd been frozen i think most people let slide. they also communicated with fan groups prior to doing this and despite the fan groups saying they thought it wrong in such economic times, they put the prices up anyway. this time they didn't even both communicating with the fan groups. 

 

one of the main reasons the club have given is to cover the increase in bills. so we as fans are supposed to pay for that every time. but this is not the only income line to the club. for instance a few years back we installed additional flood lights because TV demanded it. regardless of weather, time or day or any other conditions, we run the flood lights because TV demanded it. Then when it comes to pay for all this, get the dickheads in the ground to pay. 

 

The price off football is fucking disgusting. Those cunts in Boston market us as their "12th man". The support is part of the appeal to both sponsors and TV and the singing of YNWA is a centre piece for TV games globally, where it is normal practice for the TV commentary team to be cut off from talking while it is being sung. They have no product without us. 

 

Finally, this is nothing more than a price fixing cartel. The clubs get together to discuss the rises and release them pretty much together. It's a proper cunts trick. What we've done isn't even the worst of it. The OAP thing at Spurs is a fucking disgrace. 

 

Bottom line - the PL is absolutely fuck all without the fans in the ground. We are part of the product, there's absolutely no need to keep charging more and more to the fan in the ground, there are loads of income streams to exploit, which in turn exploits the fan base. Enough is enough. 


TV companies see a lot of drop in customers these days because they charge too much, in Norway and Skandinavia they now struggle to get bidders for the next TV deal because there is no value in it. 

 

It suggest to me we have reached the tipping point, its obviously about time, the problem though is the new player on the scene, the Saudis, how will that affect the main cost, the player wages, and will we see players wages dropping soon or will they follow the money?

 

There are way too much money in football, but the ticket prices are far away from being even close to the main problem. 
 

How about SOS or whatever they are called these days , makes a protest about the absolute scam the yearly member fees are, pay £28 for the slightest possibility of getting a ticket? Im pretty certain the club get a lot more money from that than this increase in ticket prices and the majority of the members dont even get to see a minute of football at Anfield. 
 

The main guys at this union are not affected by tid though, so why waste their time with this, there is nothing on it for them?

so don't moan about what they do or don't do. They are there to represent the interests of their members. The agenda is only as broad is its membership. If you think they should be representing your point of view, join and have your voice.

My problem is that they make out the speak for all the fans, but they don’t. It’s not possible to find out how many members they have either, they say they have 300.000 followers online , but in reality that means nothing.

followers will be socials of course. but they have thousands of members. i don't think they make out they represent anything but their members. how can they represent anyone else?

 

honestly, if you think they should be making more representation around membership costs or sales or the price of the adelphi, contact them. ask them about it. they might say - come, join the committee, be the voice of that point of view.

Haha I’ll let the market decide the prices for rooms at the Adelphi.

 

I’ll await their protests to when the club decide that if your season ticket fail to register at the gate/ gets forwarded to another person/ sold on the clubs ticket exachange five times combined during the season you will lose your ticket.

You can do that, or as Barry mentions, you could do something positive...

I see they fail to mention paying at least £28 just to get the opportunity to buy tickets every season, the changes where if you fail to register your ticket at the gate you will lose the credit, even if you were at the game, if you can’t go but a mate use your ticket you lose your credit, the new system with digital tickets on your phone etc, etc.

They know the tickets will be bought though. Up the price and give us the real money, tv money, for transfers. Yeah right.

the tickets will be bought now. give it 5 months with the portugese brendan rodgers or whatever, and the seats won't be quite as easy to fill. people think we have limitless people interested in coming to watch us play. i don't think the demand is that great for a team outside the top 4. klopp proved to be box office and then some, he's a hard act to follow in more than one way.

I still think Klopp was being honest about his reasons for calling it a day.

 

I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. I expect all the bullshit media commitments have contributed to Klopp's tiredness, and who knows what the straw was that broke the camel's back.

It wasn't sell outs every week and attendances dropped when we were shite. That was the same till they introduced the schemes they have now. They were tailing off under Rodgers and I have no doubt that's why he was fired, because they'd been trying to sell hospitality on the new main stand before it opened and couldn't. Then klopp turned up with his razzmatazz and the rest is history.

Indeed. But I think they will still sell.

Probably. Certainly a big change coming for us. I will as always (not Roy) back the manager.

FFP is getting fucked off for Squad Cost Control, points deductions still form part of the new, unanimously agreed, rules despite rumours last week. There will be more minor fines for minor breaches but the general rules is clubs in Europe cannot spend more than 70% of turnover on wages and the amortised value of transfers/agents fee's. Teams not in Europe can spend 85%.

 

They've exploring MCO's and building a stable of clubs.

All of this will lead to a reduction in transfer costs and then wages and agent fees. The January window just gone was a glimpse at the future. Clubs know they can only spend within their means, in our case it means our expenditure will reduce. We could increase profits by standing still, increasing ticket costs is unnecessary other than for reasons of greed. I'm delighted the flags were withdrawn and the atmosphere was shite. Maybe FSG may value that support at the billions it worth to them rather than an extra £19 a head.

Don’t think you’re old enough to remember Liverpool in 10th in January one season under Sir Bob . They then went on an unbeaten run to win the league , if we sat in 8th now people’s heads would explode on here.

1981 or 82 if I recall. I remember attending the home game where we beat Wolves 2-1 and turned it all around and won the League. Won the League Cup too.

A mate of mine has recently relocated his season ticket from block 109 on the Kop to the new Anfield Road stand with a group of mates he’s gone to the match with for years as they’re getting on and a couple of them have some health issues. In block 109 they were mostly sat next to a group of fans who have sat in the same seats for years. In the new Anfield Road stand they’re sat by a different group of fans every week. My mate said they got talking to a couple of fans sat by them a few weeks back, and they found out these fans had paid almost £500 for their tickets. This included a few extras like access to a lounge, some food was included, a free match programme and travel from town to the stadium and back. It sounds like there’s loads of these packages being sold throughout the stadium. 
 

Also working from home this week I had Sky News on and on the business news section they had the ceo of a premium ticketing company called Seat Unique on. His business is doing really well charging extortionate amounts for tickets to gigs and sporting events similar to those packages mentioned above. This isn’t a ticket reselling site, they are supplied with the tickets by the venues themselves. I had a look at their site and they are offering tickets for our final matches of the season as below. How much extra is the club creaming in from these deals?
