"Numerous incidents of crowd trouble at previous fixtures"  ???

https://www.lfclive.net/news/Liverpools-ticket-allocation-for-visit-to-Man-City-is-SLASHED-by-20-per-cent-1181472

Allocation cut again for this years game.
Saw this on Twitter yesterday.

So we always used to get around 3000 but last season we only got 2880 because :

''Manchester City vs Liverpool has been designated as a high-risk fixture by the local Safety Advisory Group and as a result, the allocation of tickets available to Liverpool supporters has been automatically reduced. This allocation is consistent with other fixtures that have been designated as high risk by the local Safety Advisory Group''

So is the potential 20% reduction off 3000 (will leave 2400) or 2880 (will leave 2304)? coupled with the fact that LFC will siphon off a ridiculous amount (last season was by far the worst example of this) again, this will probably sell out on 17 initially. Should go to 16 on returns but no doubt the club will swallow up the last few themselves and not have a returns sale.

From what I've heard, 2350 allocation.

I figured maybe they were just waiting till Madrid was done and dusted, it does seem slow.

Surely something will get announced today, for a first sale Monday?

Arenít away details normally announced about a month before, with first sale about three weeks in advance? Two weeks tomorrow the game and we donít even have details yet  :butt

Absolutely no chance of collection only at the ground. If, and its a big IF, there were any changes, it would be NFC tickets. But I'm sure we'd have known by now if they were going to do that.

Going by the last few sales, the sale should have been this week but because so many of us were in Madrid, obviously they couldn't do it. Should have been last week but no doubt they'll announce it today with the 1st sale on Monday. Also by leaving it this late they have got the perfect excuse not to have a returns sale (same as last season) due to lack of time.

Itís crazy, probably going to give 10 minutes notice and then start the first sale the way this is going.

Disputes over reduced allocation or not, thereís no way they should be leaving it this late!

Does Spirit of Shankly have a place on the local Ground Safety Advisory Group? It seems like they're behind a lot of these shite decisions and elsewhere supporters clubs/unions are represented.

The delay is because of the reduction in allocation and the process around that. Will be paper ticket and won't be a collection.

The thing Iím struggling with on this though, and Iíve no doubts youíre right itís the reason - allocation was first mentioned as being cut on March 1, so nearly three weeks ago. How long can it possibly take to sort it out from there?

And we had a reduction last season, and there wasnít all this delay - sale announcement on March 18 (game on April 10)

The 'Safety Advisory Group' is a nonsense, and basically the excuse that clubs use to reduce allocations. Clubs don't want visiting teams having an impact atmosphere-wise.

That's where these reduced allocations come in, and why Sunderland and Newcastle get away with putting away fans miles from the pitch (against PL rules).

The Premier League need to start getting tough on shit like this. They could start by telling Newcastle that their ground doesn't fit with the PL criteria, and that they either get it sorted or they risk relegation. But they won't.

Yep, it's all bullshit, Arsenal are terrible for ripping off cup allocations from fans for example. They had like 500 more for the league cup semi at Anfield than we did at their bigger ground! And seem to pick and choose who they give 9k too in the FA Cup now, we got just over 5k there in the FA Cup last time when we were entitled to 9k. They offered Coventry the full amount though in the same season.

Keeps going on and you end up with a messy situation like Celtic and Rangers where they've gone from loads attending, to 800 allocations to no away fans at all for the next couple of derbies. Cutting an allocation by 500 or whatever just does fuck all, a complete waste of time. Premier League need to get a grip on this like you say.

The lack of communication from the club is farcical, although under the circumstances, not surprising.

From memory this was the only league away that didn't have a returns sale (was obvious how many had been siphoned off/touted by the ridiculous amount of randoms in our end...it was way more than ever) last season so by delaying the initial sales this time, the TO have got the perfect excuse not to have a returns sale this season as well so I'm fully expecting our end for this to be very similar to last season.

That was the game that idiot Big Zuu suddenly turned up at wasnít it, flaunting his appearance on his socials. Then when he was called out on how heíd managed to get a ticket when so many regulars had missed out, claimed the scrutiny he was getting was because of racism.

At least the demand from those types of hangers on might be reduced this time, last year had Ďtitle deciderí billing for ages and was massively hyped up. Not the same situation this season

Agree about the London ones - United had their allocation cut to 2k for Chelsea because it was at 5.30pm on a Saturday despite there being no issues previously.
The City reduction is in response to the December game and subsequently increasing the separation between fans. Not saying I agree with it, but they have more of a rationale than the arbitrary ones in London.

Lot of noise about that December game. Not so much about them throwing about 50 smoke bombs into our end at the 2-2 last season. If safety was such a big issue how can they give us 5k for the league cup but not 3k for this.

Because there's increased segregation, meaning more of a seat cull from the 3,000.
And the 2-2 has nothing to do with it, it's different people making the decision.
