In fairness to Mingolet, he showed solidarity with supporters and downed tools on the 77th minute aswell.

    To make more money Ron. They will have no doubt done analysis that they will still sell at higher prices. Simple supply and demand and they don’t give a shit that they are pricing life long fans out of it. The tripe being served up on the pitch is doing more damage to the business than ticket prices ever will.

    I think Mignolet downed tools a long time ago! Sakho was shocking for the 2nd goal. Firmino continues to improve, the one good thing to come out of another shambles at the back.

    Businesses that peruse a policy of profit maximisation often get burned in the end(think Eircom and cable link). The worst thing is that the fans actually add to the TV product so the clubs should be subsidizing. Plus this TV money might not be around forever, they need to keep the fans in side not give them the two fingers.

    The ticket prices for Munster rugby is keeping fans away. Instead of protesting they just don’t buy the tickets. Can only push prices so high before the “fans/consumer” pushes back.

    Protest is meaningless. They know there will be people pay it anyway. Even if that means keeping the real fans out. They don’t care. It’s the premiership, greediest league in the world.

    Fans are becoming irrelevant. The money clubs earn from ticket sales or merchandise pales in comparison with the money earned from TV money.

    The premier league will end up like the italian league with half empty stadiums if they price the real fans out. Look at Ac milan one of the biggest names in world football and they are going to build a 45000 seater stadium to move into when they leave the san siro

    Charge fans more, pay prima donna kids and these agents more money…… It should not be just Liverpool fans boycotting… All clubs should do same, it affects all… Hard to do at grounds though where it is different fans every week……

    Stephen, that’s what I can’t understand. Support your own. Why support a foreign team ? Baffling to me. But, there is people travel from all over the world to watch not only Munster but Leinster, Connacht , Ulster, their county hurling and and football teams, their league of Ireland clubs. Difference is they have ties with those teams.

    Bit of a generalisation there Ron as you won’t find many prawn sandwiches in the north bank. The owners at Liverpool are fully aware that Liverpool are one of the best supported teams in the world and as a result demand always exceeds supply. The owners are out to make the most they can from the brand and in fairness they are not the worst. Or would you rather have Hicks and Gillette back?

    There’s plenty football available where it’s not like that. German and Argentinian football is where it’s at for many, and technically the Spanish game is unreal. Pass and move and not a pinball machine aka the EPL!

    Is there a point to your very unoriginal comment? Its great that fans organized this… At yours, they tried, but all the fans at the last game said they would not be back for 2-3 years anyway.
