Daylight Robbery In Liverpool!
I know that headline is a bit like "The Pope Is A Catholic", but the breathtaking cheek of the Yanks in raising season ticket prices for Liverpool fans next season cannot go by without a comment. No Champions League football and the once mighty Reds finishing below Tottenham, Aston Villa and Unreal City, and yet they still up the season ticket prices by an above inflation 7%!
How did they come up with that figure then? Elementary my dear Hicks! Liverpool finished in 7th place in the Prem didn't they? It's a damn good job for the Scousers that they didn't finish where we ended up, or that price hike could have been 17%!
And why the price rise in the first place? (First place? That's a place reserved for Man Utd and Chelsea these days isn't it?) Well I suppose that they have to raise the funds to pay off Rafa's compensation settlement somehow. And meanwhile, Rafa walks into the job at Inter Milan and prepares a bid for Gerrard. Torres to Chelsea whilst they are about it anybody?
It shouldn't happen to such a wonderful club should it? But King Kenny will save them won't he? Yeah, just like King Kevin and Prince Al saved Newcastle! When the wheel of fortune starts to roll down hill, it is desperately difficult to stop!
And how exactly will the Liverpool fans finance this disgraceful Failure Tax? Stand by for headlines in the Liverpool Echo next May, "Burglaries Up 7%"!
