its about the principal. just like these banners and protests, they dont hit the owners pockets but it shows how angry the fans are. boycotts a step up from that.
I am so confused now. So you pay the club the money for the tickets but you dont go to the game. And that will cause what kind of a response from the owners? The club got their money !
Hey mate i understand that but how will that "hurt" the owners? They still made their money
Well in Rory, lad.
"Clubs have virtually been destroyed by people making bad decisions."You're not fucking wrong, Roy. There was one in particular in the summer which you might remember.
we are to those two like a punter is to a prostitute - they dont give a fuck about what we think of them as long as we give them money
It has to be advertised or the Manc loving press will have a filed day saying it's a reation to the football employed by Rafa.We need a stadium with 20,000 empty seats- then will teh message get through to those two twats that they are not wanted.This season is mostly a write off- i for one would sacrifice the champions league - Europa Cup for the next 5 years if it meant the club getting into the hands of teh right owners.Sadly I think these two are in it for the long game. "Waiting for the carve up of the TV money when clubs agree their own packages" Then Champions league money will be a pitance in comparison.We have to get them out NOW.
If by the Chelsea game we have nothing to play for, boycott that, problem is, you will get loads of tools snapping up the unsold tickets
I don't know if England has it, but in Italy, some offenses are punished by playing a home game in an empty stadium.May be pitch invasion and refusing to come off it would force Premier League do that? This will also get an extensive coverage in the media.
@ Veinticinco de Mayo The way you talk to other users on this forum is something you should be ashamed of as someone who is suppose to be representing the site.
As far as I understand, I thought that boycotting a game isn't primarily about their loss of finances? Assuming a boycott is for one single game and that only a few thousand outside of ST holders pay for tickets, it wouldn't be a massive loss for them financially.I imagined the visual statement of a near empty stadium would be the big publicity effect and point of the whole thing?
There's talk started on TLW of boycotting the West Ham game.
Well im in for that, im a membership holder so i will say i now i will not go to the West Ham game even if people decide that they are going, im making my stand for this game, anyone joining me???
Ok so what do we do?.
A match boycott is definitely the way forward. Liverpool City's boycott of the The S*n had a massive effect financially. A boycott of a game would be huge. It lets the owners know what we are capable of. It would get massive press even if only half full. There would be a financial loss as well.And this season is too far gone to worry about how it will effect the team. If anything it might inspire them. But for the future of the club now is the time to do it.
Sit in zazen, douse ourselves in petrol, reach for the Swan Vestas...
Are you aware of the last time Liverpool fans found themselves on the pitch? Some of them were carrying the dead bodies of friends and family, so i dont think its going to catch on mate.
I've a feeling that Real may well sack Pelegrini at the end of the season wether or not they win La Liga.So Rafa may go regardless of what any of us on here thinks or feels. I'm not so sure of how i feel about that. What i can't understand is the complete lack of quality football that we're serving up right now, bad results aside, comparing this season to last season, i just don't know what's happened.
It isn't that 'nobody wants to do it'. Plenty are willing, but they know that if they don't turn up then there will be somebody else more than willing to take up their seat.And the comment about the SOS is unfair. It's an organisation very much in its early development.
Too many fucking drama queens in here - if the arl arses had their way we'd be pushing burning tyres down Anfield Road.
If we boycott a game it has to be the Chelsea one, will get huge coverage a Sky game on Sunday and probably key in the title race, even though due to all the ESPN games have not got to as many games this season I would support a boycott and not buy one in the members sale.How does the exhange work for season tickets holders do you only get your money back if the club sell the ticket cause if not t enough put then on the exhange at the last minute and there was a widely announced campagin they miught not get sold.
I agree there has to be something. The scarf thing down the road is getting plenty of publicity. I don't get how they're recieving so much of it though and we seem to be, by and large, ignored.
if city win the CL or the prem league in the next 3 years, I'll eat my own poo.
I know and it's a fucking disgrace as well. Not once, and I mean not once, have I turned over to SSN and seen anything to do with what SOS are doing. In fact, I recall our support coming under fire from wankers like McMannaman and co. in the press whenever we held a protest on the Kop a while ago after the game. A few Mancs wear their Norwich scarves around, and lady boy picks one up after a shocking display by his current team and it's all over the fucking TV because of it. We're a European giant; a pedigree that put football in England on the map, yet all we get in the press and TV is nothing but fuckers laying the boot in left right and centre. They even gave that c*nt Sam Aladyce air time because he doesn't like Rafa. FUCK OFF SKY SPORTS!
They're getting publicity because they're doing it very visibly, in large numbers, during the match, in every game. It's unavoidable.SOS protests have been outside the ground for the most part.I'm all for a boycott but those that don't boycott need to make themselves heard or seen every game, home and away.
why not when you get to the turnstiles chain yourselves to them and then someone to them , it would cause mayhem , block up all the entrances , delay kickoff on safety grounds , hey hey hey , theres your publicity
Its all about winning shiny things.
The only way I could see any sort of boycott working, is if there was a picket line set up a distance away from the ground to dissuade fellow fans from going in. God only knows how you'd set it up though (or whether it'd be possible at all).
I think we should get to the ground early. sing our fucking lungs out and really get the atmosphere going (like a european night).As soon as the game kicks off all stand up and point at the directors box and sing as loud as we can "GET OUT OF OUR CLUB - YOU LYING BASTARDS GET OUT OF OUR CLUB" lt would have a visual and audible impact and hopefully make us "unbroadcastable" thus hitting the scumbags where it hurts - in the pocket.
