Am I right in thinking that any tickets that a member does manage to get this season, won't count towards future selling arrangements? So assuming at the start of next season we are back to full capacity, it would be members with 13+ credits from 19/20 season who get first dibs in the members sale?

Yes, they confirmed that in October

I just dont see how a member who renewed before another member gets priority? It makes absolutely no sense. Why does it matter when someone renewed? I just dont see how that is in any way a legitimate reason for someone to have priority

Why would I renew my membership in the summer when there were no games on sale and wasnt going to be for the forseeable?

So it benefits you if they don't give priority to people who have already paid.

In the same way it benefits my friend if they give priority to season ticket holders with an L1 postcode.

The sales threads and members threads are constantly full of People arguing that people exactly like them should have priority over others.

Locals Vs Out of towners.

People who've been a member for years Vs people who signed up in the most recent year.

It's natural and it happens in all walks of life. Again, it probably won't matter as the odds will be worse than cup final tickets.

This is not about what benefits me or doesnt benefit me. Its about stupid ways to decide things.

How about we give priority to those whose surnames begin with A-H?

As long as they're starting with A and ending with H I'm fine with that. I'm B  ;D

They make decisions people don't agree with all the time.

Plenty don't think it's right season ticket holders get to pick if they go on the auto cup scheme each year before mere members.

You can easily identify those who don't think it's a good idea. Very few will be season ticket holders.

Limit it to surnames beginning with H who live in your postcode.

I'm sure you'd be OK with that stupid decision.

There's no reason to give priority to members who renewed their membership, when is the cutoff date for example? Every year as soon as you buy your membership your eligible for tickets, they made it clear that tickets weren't ever guaranteed with this years membership too, i have 3 years history but a new member who signed up last year and renewed should be ahead of me? Doesn't make sense, members are all equal at the start then purchase history applies

We all know it wont happen that way, but its not a stupid question not when lots of companies have been given people special treatment for keeping up subscriptions with them during the pandemic.

I known of places giving them priority booking for those that supported them during the pandemic, giving away free t-shirts, extending the time of memberships.

But at the end of the day it will come down to season ticket holders or season ticket holders and members with purchase history that will get the chance to go.

to be honest I wouldn't put any hope in going as this government will propbably change its mind anyway.  I got excited and was looking forward when they announced about possible attending in October and that never happened.

Comparing it to the STH/members debate though, at least that has some logic to it.

Going off which member paid first is as stupid as which surname begins A-H in my opinion.

My worry now is, those of us who got to 13 last season haven't done fan update but could be eligible for tickets in these 2k. If by some miracle we are and are successful in any ballot I can see there being problems with getting in with no fan update completed.

I think if members have any chance at all (I don't think we will) then it'll be 15/15 from last season for sure, same as seasies

Sure I read somewhere Everton have put an announcement out about ST and hospo sales.
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Not sure... but I don't see how that is any different to being in a pub/restaurant with measures in place serving a substantial meal with booze

2000 hopso would get the same revenue as 10000-15000 normal tickets, maybe even more

No it's not about that, it's about not shafting the normal price paying fan.

With the tier restrictions, common sense from clubs point of view is to only sell to locals. Put some criteria in such as 15/15 or STH and L postcode and go from there.

Iíll give it a month before Liverpool is back in tier 3. As someone mentioned, the pubs round the grounds will be rammed with tier 3 people, causing spikes just look how Liverpool went from 60 per 100k to 700 odd prior to going into tier 3. Same things just happened to Kent from tier 1 to tier 3

Should be just locals IMO I'm not local so it would affect me and I definitely would travel down from Notts if given a ticket, but fully understand if they say L post code ballot.

Agreed.

On the membership renewal discussion, the club charge an exorbitant amount for tickets like all clubs, so why would people renew their membership when there was no guarantee of any tangible benefits at the time. The thoughts of citicising or ostracising those that didn't is utterly ridiculous.

I'm sure all members who qualify at the point of tickets being offered to members will be afforded the opportunity to renew with no detriment.

True but you could argue that they in Birkenhead should be included in the local sales over someone who lives in Ormskirk, due to them being more local and the club seem happy to ignore that fact... (probably for ease)   So wouldnít surprise me if they did the L postcode as they already have the system set up for that.

Personally I'd keep the Kop as it is with the flags on and have everyone else dotted around the ground

Is right, a 54,000-seat stadium with barely 2,000 fans inside would look empty anyway, I'd go for opening only the centenary lower and keep the banners in the Kop

Pubs are still not allowed to open anyway unless they serve 'substantial meals' and you can also only be with members of your own household.

If we're going off the actual rules, like
