You need to be locked up mate. You are quite obviously unhinged. What is wrong with you?

The walk out had nothing to do with the game.

There are plenty of posts, on the RAWK thread about the walkout, from people who helped in the organising of it saying both things

It's called a difference of opinion - though it doesn't seem to be too different from Klopp's. Is he unhinged as well?

The forum that gave today's protest much of it's momentum and has a thread dedicated to the protest with hundreds of posts in it from the people who organised it?? Or does the fact that they mentioned it on RAWK totally mean it is not correct?

Where is the quote from Klopp about the walkout today?

Seeing as Klopp has just had his appendix out and is in hospital you must be in the room with him to know his opinion on the walk out today?

How is he doing? Wish him a speedy recovery from me.

Our captain said the walkout had nothing to do with the result. Our assistant manager didn't even mention the walk out in his interview.

You mean the quote from earlier in the season where he criticised the fans who left early? At what point did I say he had said anything today????

You have offered the opinion that the walkout today directly impacted the result of today's game. You then also claimed that Klopp had the same opinion as you. The walkout today had nothing to do with the result.

And for the record Klopp didn't criticise the fans for leaving early. He said the team should do better and make them want to stay.

You don't need to tell me that - it is always good for a laugh though when you are depressed about results. Just go on for a good bit of 'tin foil hat' conspiracy ********

There were several posts today that suggested Sturridge was only on the bench today so that he could be bought on at around 75 minutes to stop the walkout. ******* hilarious.

Speaking of which - I thought he was going to get injured again when Milner clattered into him while he was warming up.

You should know by now once the forums have decided, you need to tow the line, there is no point arguing. It just gets nastier if you try and defend your differing opinion.

If you don't think a manager expressing his disappointment that fans walked out because they didn't think they would get back into it, isn't a criticism of the fans, it seems the very definition of not really being a fan of the team.

I'm sure one of you has some sort of Shankly quote saying pretty much the same thing in one of your sigs.

I've seen it numerous times at Forest, they're professionals and earn a lot but they're still human beings. They see people streaming for the exits, it's only natural to make you think, "they don't care, why should I?"

It happens all the time in many different situations, lady at work brought some homemade cakes to the meeting, I thought they were wonderful and told her so. Everyone else polished off the bourbons and hobnobs. Did she up her game for the next meeting, make better cakes? Nope, she didn't bother and bought a packet of digestives.

There's a reason clubs spend a fortune on analysts and psychologists, why do they bother?

You're actually revising your argument. Klopp never mentioned the fans leaving having an effect on the players.

Yes it was a criticism of the fans. But that wasnt the initial point you incorrectly made.

I was at the game today and was against the walk out occurring during the game.
I agree with Adam that the walkout was a distraction during the game and could very well have affected concentration.
These things should happen after the game- the chanting against Hicks and Gillette ( which I stayed for each time) was effective.
The Sunderland fans were openly laughing at us outside and I feel that some of the organisers have an agenda and a feeling of entitlement beyond ticket prices.

The organisers think NOBODY in the ground next season on a general admission ticket should pay more than £40 ( that's less than the current cheapest ticket ) and that 70% of them should pay £30 OR LESS. And they were surprised that the club didn't agree

I won't have it that the walk out affected the result or the players too much.Moreno is always a moment away from a total brainfart and Mignolet is just a poor,poor keeper who shouldn't be anywhere near the first team.

What i do find a little ironic though is many of those fans who walked out in protest at ticket prices won't be thinking twice next week of paying upwards of £70 + for wembley ones next week

I think it's hard to presume fans streaming out was not distracting for the first goal given the timing but even so it is so bad now I wasn't particularly surprised at us blowing another game and was more upset that I lost 12 fantasy football points as I swapped out Scott Dann (who scored) for Clyne. It was an inspired move right up to 80mins....

blaming the inability to beat an awful Sunderland when 2 up & less than 10 to go on fans leaving is incredulous.

Top price for the League Cup Final is £100, making LFC's proposed £77 a comparitive bargain.

This exact same point was put to one of the organisers of today's walkout protest the other day; if you are that upset about ticket prices which is a 'league wide' problem, would you not be better served by advising people not to buy Cup Final tickets AT ALL (better coverage, a live game, the League's - who are the only ones who can really sort out the problem - prestige game of the year, etc, etc). Their response was, paraphrasing, we don't have a problem with Wembley's price we are only bothered about Liverpool's. They went on to say that walking out of the Sunderland game would be far more effective than not turning up at Wembley at all. A cynic, like me, hears that and just interprets "I don't like high ticket prices but there is no way I am missing out on a jolly to Wembley".

Heaven forbid you should point out to them they can see the exact same two teams play against each other 3 days later for significantly less

I agree with about Moreno as well.

SOS seem to feel constanly aggrieved that whenever FSG do something they haven't asked for their permission first.
