Fair play to them, 51% owned by the fans as well, we sold our soul a long time ago, the Germans have the principle of ownership 100% correct.

  so why are they protesting then? Why are they being charged €66 for a cup game match ticket? I've been to Germany a number of times and part of the reason is being able to watch good football for a reasonable price (20 euros) with a great atmosphere (and lots of great, cheap beer). But the fact is they're saying things are changing and they don't want to get to the point of being like England.....theyre protesting before its too late. But if you're saying they've got the ownership thing right, why are the prices increasing like they are?

It was only effective because of the media love in with Liverpool FC, if Southampton did it it wouldn't have created a murmur, Everton the peoples club of Liverpool. Half of the Country wank over Liverpool, it makes me want to vomit.

There's no way you can know this, and I rather suspect that it is bollocks.    I think ten thousand fans doing a  walkout from a home game any Premier League club would have made the news in similar circumstances.

The spirit of Shankly is a very powerful lobby group. Those 10,000 were the scousers.

 yes.

 

so if their ownership system is so good, why are they being charged such high prices?

well the Liverpool protest has worked.... max ticket and season ticket prices frozen. A complete u turn from the club and good news......although max ticket prices are still £59 which is still extortionate.

This is a short thread, and I've read thorugh it all a couple of times, paying particular attention to your posts. Can't seem to find any in which you say that Liverpool FC will bow to pressure from their supporters and abandon plans to increase ticket prices, though. In what other way are you 'bang on the dough'? If what you meant to type was 'Bazza bangs on the dough again' then I really don't want to know.

Try as I might, I can't understand the second part of your post (the bit following the first comma). What the fuck are you on about?

It is a big club talking with a media love in, it's not LFC bowing to pressure it's the yanks who don't want part of their operation damaged, I'll say it again if we did it the media wouldn't have been arsed and we would have been told to get to fuck by the club.  I knew the yanks would fold, not because of the walkout but because of the biased media.

You deny the media doesn't love Liverpool FC and is biased towards it? Have a word, the most open secret there is.

 The fact that you think 10,000 walking out of SMS would not get any attention makes the rest of your speculation as likely as the moon being made out of double gloucester.

The hysteria created by Liverpool fans walking out is so ott, we would create a ripple they would create a tsunami, the media love in. There was a protest last season by all premiership club outside the premierleague headquarters and nothing happens, Liverpool fans walk out (if you recall Klopp complained about fans walking out early earlier in the season) and they become the conscience of football fans, if you lived here you would know that's not the case, most haven't gone for years.

Not just us it would seem. Apparently, our view that German ticket prices are very low is a bit wrong. Dortmund carried out a novel and interesting protest involving bombarding the pitch with tennis balls

 If that had been done in the UK we would have been banned from European competitions for 5 years.

The fight isn't over, apparently and I do agree with them.

One question though, do the FFP regulations take into account the PL money or is it all based on Match Day income?

Still thing the next generation of fans 0-10/12 should get really cheap season tickets of a free on with adults. Or free up to 6/7. 

I would grab an away season ticket if they ever did them again or a home to share, which would encourage me to go to more games. 

When I purchased my half season ticket in Dec 2009 for the remainder of the first L1 season, I was able to obtain an under 9's ticket free of charge. Unfortunately my youngest was not always available to attend with me so, although the additional leg room was appreciated, when renewal time came round, I was able to upgrade to an adult ticket at the discounted 'renewal' rate so a mate took on the seat.
