Feedback from Burnley game

Issues on Saturday Liverpool FC’s first home game of the season, in front of a full house for the first time in 18 months, was a positive 2-0 victory. A great start on the pitch, not so smooth off it, with many of Spirit of Shankly members reporting confusion and disorganisation. The new ticketing system had caused apprehension for fans following difficulties getting into Anfield at the two pre-season friendlies earlier in the month. SOS took all concerns to the club in the interim period, before the game with Burnley, and were assured new measures [...]

Ticket fiasco at Anfield

Fans Frustrated Today’s thrill of returning to Anfield turned sour for thousands of Liverpool FC supporters.

The pre-season friendly against Spain’s Athletic Club was due to kick off at 4pm with capacity at 75%. It was clear more than two hours beforehand there were problems getting in as queues began to form. With [...]

Speaking to the Sun?

Letter to Wes Streeting MP Dear Wes Streeting We begin by saying it is great news to hear you are now cancer free, and we send you our best wishes for future health. We are however disappointed to read that you have written an exclusive article for The Sun. We find it astonishing that you, as a Labour MP, should choose this particular publication for an exclusive interview. You will be fully aware, that this ‘newspaper’ has been boycotted/banned here in Liverpool and many other parts of the country for the role it played in [...]

Knight has now replied and a copy of his letter can be seen below. He has totally missed the point. MP for West [...]
