What the demand for tickets has been like for the England v Paraguay game at Anfield next month - are many local people going?

Surprisingly slow sales. Kop still on sale a week after the phones opened.

Take a look at ticketmaster.co.uk. There is a link off the front page to the ticket sales.

I've bought 10 and taking a minibus full of friends to hopefully see one or two mighty reds get a run out.

;)

Ive got my tickets. Middle of Kop, thanx to ticketmaster.

Now I hope we put a half-decent team out for the game.

ticketmaster.co.uk doesnt seem to be working on my computer, dunno why. When you select the tickets wanted the site cgi script hangs.  ???

I've got my tickets for the Centenary Stand.

I'm surprised the demand hasn't been higher - after all, it is England's LAST game in England before the World Cup Finals (we still have 2 more friendlies - but this is our last at home). Anyway, I can't wait for it - COME ON ENGLAND. Here's a good song for us to sing:

(Tune of "Brown Girl in the Ring")

Sven Goran Eriksson, La la la la la
Sven Goran Eriksson, La la la la la la
(Etc...)

If any of the people who hate england are english, they should take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror and ask why!

Apart from that i can see why people don't want to spend 22 quid on a match when it's only a friendly that we're likely to lose!

People dont seem to care about England because they dont have anything to indentify with as regards to the National team!!
The fans, or at least the bulk of the fans come from the South (no offence to any Southern Reds!) and usually support teams who dont really have much to shout about.
Also, its the nationalistic ideals of being an "England Fan" doesnt appeal to me. I have followed Liverpool thru Europe and had some great days abroad, mixing with fans of various opposition teams, even Romans!! If i was to go and watch England abroad (and i wont!!) i would not feel at ease, with trouble and violence seeming to follow INGERLAND around the continent (except when in Holland, wonder why that was/is - anyone??).
After the Alaves game, i even find myself alligning myself with Spain more than England (ALAVES, ALAVES, ALAVES!!).

Being from Liverpool, of Italian ancestory, i let out a hell of a YEEESSS when Montella scored last nite! Sorry if this doesnt fit in with the "Wheres your pride in your own country??" thing!

This said, there are times when i cant help myself but to squeal with excitement at an England match ; the 5-1 game in Germany for example - i didnt want to show any kind of buzz that England were winning, and i dont have any kind of hatred for Germany like so many England fans, bu i couldnt help it.  Maybe it was because of the scorers in that game, i dont know?  One thing tho, i wasnt just supporting England because they were winning!!

So there it is, thats why i dont care about England - anyone wanna take me up on this??

Completely agree, plus

Plastic S*n bowler hats.
Xenophobic press portraying England players in army hats, splashing Krauts etc all over the front pages.
"2 world wars & 1 world cup"
Booing Johnny Barnes & a campaign to undermine him by a certain rag.
The conduct of England supporters home & abroad.
Thatcher.


I could go on. I don't want to associate myself with any of the above. I suppose in some ways I'm a turn coat as I did support them when I was a kid. Then again I used to piss myself & eat my own snot too. (er I'm talking about when i was really little, just to clarify that).

I go cos I like to see the National team play. Keep myself to myself though and agree with the points about the S*n hats and southern bias etc. I dont feel guilty about going but I would certainly not join the England Club etc. Very strange undertones going on there.

Like ive said I went to the Finland match last year and it was like I was on a different planet. Ground felt different and very odd.

Showed me that Anfield is really the fans of Liverpool and less to do with the fabric of the building.

Still wouldnt like a ground move though!
