THERE’S an accepted view that, if you are a football club aiming to bury contentious news, then Friday afternoon isn’t a bad time.
So it was with Liverpool and the announcement of their new season ticket prices.
Sure, some Kop tickets have been reduced and games have been made more affordable for youngsters lucky enough to get a seat.
But for the majority, a price hike of up to £70 – or nearly 10% – is faintly ridiculous given the lack of Premier League success in recent years. And coming just days after Liverpool’s accounts revealed a significant increase in debt, it is impossible not to conclude the fans arepaying the price for the lack of Champions League revenue.
