New stadium will BLEED fans dry
As usual the fickle fans are foolishly jumping for joy that we are moving from our spiritual home, ANFIELD, without realising the true implications of this greed filled move by the money hungry American owners. With this in mind I have consulted with my inner circle of superior footballing minds to tell it like it REALLY is… read it and weep FOOLS!
Let’s be honest here and accept that the greedy Yank owners are going to milk our club dry until they bleed the stupidly loyal LFC fans for every penny. As the last 18 years have proven, THEY know that regardless of how poor the product on the pitch is Liverpool fans will still keep coming to the games and accepting any second rate garbage the club throws at them.
Here’s what you can expect to happen when the new stadium opens...
MASSIVE hikes in ticket and season ticket prices just like at OT. Though most won’t care because they’d sell their own internal organs in order to cough up because sadly, LFC is all they have in their pitiful lives.
Corporate sponsorship of the stadium name. It’s well known that in the US (and in the UK now) any cheesy corporate entity that comes along with the money has its name plastered all over the stadium and we are no exception. Most likely it will be called “the DSS stadium” in honour of the Merseyside masses who have made the doel office their second home (after Anfield) over the years. ANFIELD will be dead and buried as a name along with all its history and integrity. What a DISGRACE!
Huge debt will be incurred while player salaries will continue to spiral out of control. In order to offset this, the working class masses that built Liverpool FC will be priced out of the game. Though this won’t affect me up in the private suites I will still be saddened to see the humble fan suffer (except for morons like lokiherpes, Damien.dodd and (p)rikmac) as I look down like an Egyptian Pharaoh upon my starving subjects falling by the wayside as the club turns into a rich man’s muse just like sport has in America.
In summation it’s obvious to see that we are merely trying to keep up with the giants of the game like Man U but our lack of league success over 18 years our inability to draw top players to the club and the lack of money on Merseyside make this a fruitless venture.
I suggest we keep our history and tradition in place by staying at ANFIELD and upgrading what we have at our spiritual home… Bill Shankly’s ashes deserve to stay within the confines of our legendary fortress as do TRUE fans that he respected and the Yanks so obviously DON’T!

P&S, I must really be getting under your skin to warrent a personal reply. As I never try to get personal on these boards whether I agree or disagree with whomever I'm discussing a point, I can only assume you take issue with someone who has a different view that yours. Or maybe my thoughts on these threads threaten you in some way.
On hockey, please go read the posting you put up on your last rant, that proves my point. If you can't read then I really can't help you.
On product, if your right and only performing teams count, I guess 90% of football teams might as well shut there doors as they have no chance to win any major title or piece of silverware, and therefore are not good product. Football my friend is a form of entertainment. If you don't enjoy it anymore, then please feel free to go do something else. But, there are many who see LFC as a good product and are willing to pay to watch.
As the owners so far have invested money, both in commiting to the new stadium, and in allowing Rafa to buy in new players, I'm not sure how your argument about the owners trying to milk the club holds any water. You could point out that you don't agree with how the money is being spent (we already know you'd rather we bought British only) but stating the owners only want to milk the profits just does not square with the facts.
Nice to retort with you again, and sorry if I've begun to cause you any discomfort.
Seanice, I'm guessing the satisfaction you took from that being 2-0 down on the last day of the season and coming back to survive probably outweighs most of our big games. Ive been to every European cup final we've been in except the Istanbul and although they are some of the most treasured memories I could ever have (Especially 77) I'm pretty sure that all those emotions you had were even more intense. We had nothing to lose in those finals whereas you would have had everything to lose and just as much to gain. It musta been hell for you on that day!
Does anyone know how much (if at all) prices went up for Arsenal tickets when they moved into the Emirites stadium. Your talking London prices which I'd expect would be higher, but percent increase is worth knowing.
For closer to home, while product would be cheaper, what about when the Rebok opened in Bolton, or Man City's stadium.
Bottom line is so long as the product is good, and the tickets are affordable (subjective) then the stadium will be at or near capacity for all games. Any businessman knows this. Keep the punters happy and you can make money.
Ohhhhhhhh such big games like that dont compare to European nights like St.Etienne,Chelski X2,Barcelona X2, 3 European CUP FINALS,2-0 Down to the Blue S***E and winnig 3-2 in the last 20 mins and dare we forget the 2 FA CUP final wins again against the B.S.These are just a few memories,that you and you like at the Theatre of Dreams(more like NIGHTMARES),could only look at though your vivid GREEN EYES
Funny how the PiSstaker did not bring this up when Moores still owned the club. The design hasn't changed much, though it does offer the possibility of further expansion.
Another example of PiSstaker's xenophobia! But he's never been to the old Anfield, and won't be at the new one either!
50,000 isnt big enough, Liverpool FC has a 15 year waiting list.
That is why 60,000 is the bare minimum needed for the club in the future.
The cost of rebuilding anfield i dont would guess with the lost revenue inlcuded would not be disimilar from the cost of what may be one of the best stadia in europe.
