Real auld arse here.. When I was a lad...we were proud of the successes of early teams - but they actually meant f-all to us. Fortunately, we watched the 60's -70's onwards teams. We had a connection and a huge pride in our players. Most saturday nights in the Punchbowl, Sefton, we could have a respectful laugh and joke with reds and blues. Our heroes were regular blokes  who liked a pint and some banter with us mortals. The only difference was that they earned  10 times what we did. we had mercenaries - Lawro being the worst. But most of they players and still are, part of the "us" that LFC is. They still talk that way. To many of today's crop have no connection / affinity / loyalty  to the club.

Just doing a job. 18yr olds earning what the rest of us dream of earning. And disrespecting the fans and the club as they do so.

Don't suppose it will happen, but fuck the past. Build with players who WANT to be here.

Hello Reds,

I am currently undertaking a dissertation in university to discuss "Has the commercialisation of Liverpool and Everton  football club affected the relationship between the club and their supporters?".

Therefore, it would be of great help if you could participate and help in answering a 5 minute questionnaire using the link below. All responses will not require any accounts and all data will maintain 100% confidential and will not be shared with any other parties.

At some stage player wages are going to be have to capped otherwise ticket prices are going to be out of control.  It's the major cost these days for top level clubs and if they all worked together wage inflation could be stopped.   
Klopp that!

Good article from the FSA on how supporters will be denied seeing their teams on tv with the connivance of the PL.
