Well there is clearly a new workaround with people basketing early as my queue position was 12. Took about 2 mins to get on the site but yep you guessed it sold out. U9 flashed up once.

Wow, I have just managed to bag two individual tickets at 12:14pm and 12:30pm - It said it was sold out but after about a hour of refreshing I got them!

Don't give up refreshing until it's off the website

Website is awful and plagued with 406 errors.

Surely the club could identify those buying more than 4 or even 10 and ban them

Think I would rather the usual over an hour wait than have that happen again. 

Like many have said after Klopp departs will seriously look at packing it in maybe bar the cups , sitting in near silence with people who think it's a jolly day out to tick off the bucket list and who have paid a parasite tout takes the fun away and not to mention the state of the sport in general.
For now will just keep plugging away and enjoy the pre and post match drinks and the moments of pure joy that being at Anfield can deliver.

Most pointless thing in the world.
Was told they will review it and work with the clubs supporter board.
Does anyone know who it is because this has been going on long enough.

Was waiting for my mate at my usual spot on the garage wall yesterday, get there a few hours early so wasn't many people around. Group of about 6 or 7 eastern europeans follow these two fellas over. "U1 or U9 you'll be in" one of the fellas says to the eastern Europeans and then proceeds to quote them £400 a ticket. After finding out that they want tickets together he then notifies them that they'll actually cost more than £400 each. A bit of haggling went on and they appeared to part ways without buying anything, although the fella did tell them the price might drop closer to the game depending on how many they shift. Two police officers an earshot away too. Guessing these are where a lot of the local tickets are going. Was two fellas doing the "touting" and by the sounds of things there was another fella who had the tickets. Grim

I havenít had a local ticket in 3/4 years and it was mainly Eastern Europeans in them blocks then too. If not, very few scouse accents. Just got 22000 in queue for Leeds and my bird got 55000. Itís a farce. Are they paper tickets these days I canít remember what they used to be. If not, are the touts using burner phones or what.

Nothing. The local sales are clearly being exploited even more so than the normal members sales. The idea has always been good since it was implemented back in 2016 but itís not seen as a positive anymore. The fact people donít even have to prove they have a L postcode is a disgrace and again people who donít have an L postcode are clearly having a field day along with queue jumpers and touts able to register multiple accounts with blag postcodes and hoover up all the tickets. I wouldnít mind if they just scrap the local sales if they arenít going to be watertight with the way itís managed. Should have to upload ID to prove you have a L postcode and your ID should match the address on the system. Plus make them non transferable.

Itís unbelievable that there arenít any ID checks. Iím sure when they first implemented it I had to go to Anfield to prove my address, so looks like theyíve actively decided to stop checking this. I just wish the club was willing to work with us on this and implement some of the ideas people have to combat it.

Also, anyone manipulating the system needs to take a look at themselves; abusing something good that is designed to help the local community of they club they claim to supportÖ

Fan update next month will sort them out hopefully for the foreseeable.

I'll probably get moaned at for saying it but it's not just non-locals exploiting the system. Obviously taking them out of local sales will help massively but there's still a bunch of locals with every single family member under the sun signed up to the system with ID's at the ready for the fan update on. Someone's 90 year old Nana will probs have an account with 13+...

I wouldn't be so sure about the fan update unfortunately. It's only for members so the general admission accounts won't get touched. Even if the general admission accounts did get looked at, it would take seconds to open a new one after the fan update.

The lack of checks is embarrassing.

Doubt it will as if you dont buy in november sales you dont have to do a fan update. Once you do a fan update though the address section locks so you are unable to change your details without notifying the club which she be in place from when u make an account.
