GETTING ABIT BORED OF THIS NOW

AFC LIVERPOOL mellow.gif

iverpool supporters have formed their own "little brother" club AFC Liverpool after being priced out of going to Anfield.AFC Liverpool are the latest 'fans' club after the success of first AFC Wimbledon and then FC United and they have applied to the Vodkat North West Counties League Division Two to enter a team for next season.But unlike FC United - formed in protest at the Glazer ownership - AFC Liverpool hope to flourish alongside the club and have been launched purely to give fans a team to watch outside of the big Premier League prices.Club spokesman Alun Parry told the Daily Telegraph: "This has nothing to do with the ownership issue, it's about affordability. I've been going to Anfield since the late Seventies when I was six years old. A season ticket in the Kop cost £45 in 1985, today it's £650, which I know is a lot cheaper than some other Premier League clubs, but in inflation terms Eighties prices should equate to £98 today."We aren't blaming the club, we realise they have no choice, but the sad fact is that a whole community is being denied the opportunity to grow up in the 'match-going' culture. The average age of a Premier League supporter is now 43. At a recent game I spotted only two children, so kids who can't afford to go are forced to learn what it means to support a club from one source - television."Far from wishing to be estranged from the club, we are hoping that Liverpool will look upon us as a little brother."

lol@starting up a next team full of sh*t players so you can watch games because you're too cheap to pay to see world class names like Torres, Mascherano and Gerrard. Get what you pay for.

Bollocks.Football is a working class game but those working class people can't afford to go because of the corporate wankers running it.Paying £50+ a ticket, + the day out (food drinks etc = £100 a week) if you've a family that's a lot of spare money going down the swanny.

Whether its right or Wrong, Got to disagree Matt. Football 'was' a working class game - its now a business. Its a double edged sword because fans want trophies and big signings but will complain about ticket prices. Option? go to away games or stop supporting your team financially and do it vocally.It would be like Lamborghini making economy cars to cater for the people that have Lamborghini as their favourite car. It wouldn't make business sense.

that is true i suppose with shirts and that it exploits the working class, merchandise foreign fans and Turnstiles the business people. If you mean the players themselves they're harfly exploited!

Our season tickets are only £280 for the holte end.I get what he's saying though...And I think its right, I dont see why people dont agree with it?It's just giving more oppertunities to people who simply cannot afford to go to their teams games regulaly.I've had my season ticket for 11 of the last 13 seasons, 10 straight and I won't be stopping anytime soon, but thats because up untill i was 16 it was £150ish (on average) a season and now for a student its £280.If I had to pay these extortionate prices, right now I would (because im working) but during my school years and college years I simply would not of been able to afford to go.Some people dont get it, supporting a football club is a disease, you live, breathe, eat and sleep every single thing that club does.You become obsessed with it, and missing a games is horrible... Which is why I feel sorry for the true top 4 fans who simply can't 'feed their habit' because of the ridiculous prices.The price doesn't matter to football fans, they'll pay it... but sometimes, they simply cannot

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are extortianate IMO.United is considerably less, I think about £690.I was going to get one but f*ck being liable for ALL Carling Cup and FA Cup matches, EVEN IF YOU CANT GO. Madness.Prices are ridiculous still, but currently I am in a situation where I could comfortably afford to go, but I see why people are switching.

Yeah thats the biggest mockage that cup scheme bullshit.But last season it was £690 WITHOUT that shite. Which was much better than Arsenal, Pool, Chelsea and Spuds last season.But you couldnt get one for love nor money. This season you could cos most people opted out due to that added bullshit.

Swear they only measure attendance on tickets that actually go through the gate. Thats why they announce at half time no?

jj now that im about to start working i was thinking of getting a arsenal season ticket, but the only thing that puts me off is sitting in the same seat all season.the thing i like about being a silver member is to be able to hand pick your seat. i mean imagine theres a dude around 6"6 infront of you for the whole season. whats your seat like at villa park? has this ever been a issue for you
