  1. Agree. This Scudamore fellow could start with doanting his farewell gift to the clubs further down in league 1 or 2. Many of them are now on the brink of going bankrupt.
  2. The decision will be what it'll be. Will depend on the development of the Covid-19 I suppose. The situation is beyond what we'd all expect one month ago. Who knows what the world looks like one month from now. In the aftermath of this FA should make rules on what do to if this situation should occur again. You could i.e. say abandon season if less than 50% of matches have been played and conclude the season as it stands if more than 50% have been played, applying ppg for the matches that won’t be played. Or any other solution. The main point is to have a rule to provide predictability. Back in the 60'smatches were decided by a coin toss. We could decide the reamning matches by some kind of randiom draw.
  3. Our midfield, all somehow subbed. Gini Ox Hendo

    Adriàn

    Good post Simply stating the facts. Adrian had secure options both sides. Incredibly stupid, incredibly naive, incredibly infuriating
  5. Corona virus. Not only killing ordinary people. It also resurrects evil
  6. Think you're right about that. Also, Rome is supposed to be host to several matches. As per now it looks like Rome might not be able to do that. The fact that the EUROs is spread out in Europe also suggests the competition will be difficult to arrange, thus being postponed and played next season. This will give the leagues and the CL/EL more time too.

    Watford 3 Liverpool 0 (Feb 29 2020)

    5 positives after the 3-0 spanking Watford gave us: 1. If we lose or draw against Everton and-/or MCity. They can’t say they were the ones to stop us 2. Should we win the rest it’s not entirely a draw at Old T that stopped us getting a 100% score 3. We lost 1 match 3-0, not 3 matches 1-0 4. We’re 22 points ahead of 2nd placed team with 10 matches to go 5. Lesson told: To win matches you our players need to commit themselves 100%. Hopefully lesson learned.

    Watford 3 Liverpool 0 (Feb 29 2020)

    It's not entirely wrapped up yet. We still need 4 wins from our last 10 matches. Two disasters at home to Bournemouth and C Palace and we might still need 4 wins, but now from our last 6 with ManCity having closed the gap from 22 to 7 points (if they win their game in hand). Really hope we don't do a repeat next league game against Bounemouth. It could get nervy.
  9. Correct. Better to lose 3-0 one time than 1-0 3 times

    And the 2019 financial results are in.

    Our commercial income is a staggering 188M. The reason for that is simple. It’s the overall popularity of the club world wide. Results are first, that is pivotal. If the team wins/compete for the big prizes popularity increases. But there’s also another issue. People like to support a club that shows passion. Many would feel very good about a club who puts fans first, or at least that’s how it would seem if they gifted it's fans a 50% reduction. How much income do you think Barca has lost by reject having shirt sponsors and have UNICEF on them instead? It’s a fair bid they actually made money on the decision as increased popularity may have exceeded the income from a shirt sponsor. If our commercial income could increase an additional 12-15%, that alone would pay for a 50% ticket reduction. And I don't buy into that tout argument. Touts can be stopped. It's all up to the club. Ticket prices is not the issue. They allready charge the fan 200 quid or more pr. ticket.

    ... and the club itself may be viewed as one. What about those hospitality packages? 350 quid for an ordinary ticket and a 3 course meal? Split it up and it's 60 for the ticket and 310 for the meal. No sane person alive would pay 310 for a meal like that. Yet they selll out. Because there's a ticket involved.

    Thank you for your reply. I’m not local and can’t afford to travel more than once or maybe twice per season. My trip for this season is due next week, but from last year I remember the atmosphere to be really good. By “genuine fans” I mean all fans locals as well as wools, who really care about the team. I do, however feel bad about local fans being priced out, almost feel guilty of taking up a seat that maybe should belong to someone else. Over the years I’ve witnessed people choosing to stay inside 15-20 mins into the second half as there’s more fun telling jokes amongst friends in the Reds Bar. If I had my way they’d all be flogged out of the stadium. Reducing ticket prices by 50% would be a huge statement, hitting the news in every corner of the world. It would say “we’re here for our fans!”. I think maybe it could be a shrewd business decision. And I don’t share your worry about touts. Touts could be stopped if the club really wants to. They are in fact ever so slowly addressing the problem.

    If the club reduced ticket prices by 50% it would reduce match day revenue by app. 24M. That's 4,5% of total income. If they did Anfield would be packed with more genuine fans, people who now find themselves priced out. The atmosphere at matches would reach new heights, cementing our position as the club with the most passionate fans, which in turn would further increase our status internationally. Wouldn’t surprise me if the 24M spent on reducing ticket prices would be paid for by increased commercial revenue. So here it is. Do the right thing and invite the fans back home.

    Liverpool 3 West Ham 2 (Feb 24 2020)

    Nice report as always Dave. I also want us to break all records possible. I want us to make the longest run of consecutive wins ever, the longest unbeaten run ever, the most points achieved in the history of the league. All of it. However, if we won all our remaining games it would kind of pain me knowing only a draw at Old T prevented us from the 100% season record. I’ll use that as comfort if we eventually drop a couple of points.

    Liverpool 3 West Ham 2 (Feb 24 2020)

    Sorry to ruin your birthday, but it can’t be won on March 7th. If everything goes our way and babyface Ole’s babes beat Man City March 8th we may be within 3 points, 1 win, to claim it. You may be right about Keita. I'm willing to give him until the end of the season before writng him off completely though.
