If no one had complained it would have been. There is no doubt that if they pushed it through it would still have worked.

Well all that'll happen is the club will lose some money, doesn't make it a good business idea. Tickets will still be available for more than £77 from touts. But it's best they make the money.

It's probably not a good business idea to have thousands of people desperately wanting a season ticket but will never get one on the basis they were born in the wrong decade. Doesn't make them worse supporters. They sit at home listening to it on the radio, whilst the lucky few complain they're being ripped off and walk out the stadium.

Will the continue to improve the stadium? What's the point as it'll never pay for itself.

No,they won't. They'll recoup it in other ways,50p increase on a programme, extra quid for your carlsberg, hot dog etc

no,it's a GREAT business idea to have 1000's of GA tickets they can sell to the norwegians,irish etc,they have no interest in particularly increasing ST holders. For example i'm the exact type of supporter they don't really want anymore...for a 3pm KO leave my house at 2:20pm, in the ground for 14:45pm, watch game, leave ground, home.i don't spend a penny on food,booze or a match programme.they'd much prefer my seat went to the aforementioned day tripper armed with the £200 + of club tat he's spent in the club shop.

Are they not effectively making all matches top-category now so that the £59 applies equally to both Liverpool vs ManU and Liverpool vs Bournemouth? Surely for anyone going regular that's an overall price increase?

(ahh, beaten to the same point by seconds )

No.
This season in my block I pay £46 for Category A, £42 for Category B and £38 for Cat C.
Next season all games will be £37 for that block.

What's wrong with that? Anfield has been crying out for bigger capacity. All these clubs are run as businesses, but fair play to FSG, they got the club out of the red, gave money to Rodgers, and now have frozen ticket prices.

2 out of 3 ain't bad.

You are right dependent on which part of the ground you sit, as Monkeyman says it works the other way for certain areas.

What a difference a couple of star players make. Villa were dire, but we made the most of it. Origi getting licked by fans was hilarious.

The current top 4 is the top 4 imo. The only difference will be the order.

Probably true but there is always hope until it is definitely not possible.
