Annoyed I can't get 1 down.

Think I predicted a future of no fans at football matches and all watching from home.
Would be good if you could hear everyone while watching at home.

Hopefully season ticket holders don't ask for some money back !!!

I always thought they didnt allow games on TV at 3pm so it didnt harm attendances. If they are banning all fans why not reverse that?

And no I wouldn't expect a refund as a ST holder if I was able to stream games for free. If not then yes, why wouldnt fans expect refunds. It's no different to having any other event cancelled.

The plan would be to allow ST holders to stream for free.

I cant even begin to imagine the mess between iFollow and clubs in trying to set that up. Both are well known to be administratively incompetent, certainly our club anyway.

Agree, I would imagine that most clubs will simply instruct Ifollow to open up the stream.

So, half the fun of the game is seeing mates, going for a pint and watching it together. For the fun, the laughs, the atmosphere and togetherness.

In which case whose house are we all piling round to?

In times such as this t'club should be providing radio match commo... home and away if games are BCDs to give ST holders and anyone else for that matter the chance to keep in touch. Not everyone can watch, some/many folk work matchdays and could have radio as a lifeline in factories etc. Be an absolute travesty for t'club and 102.3 to continue to remain just on an 'away only' footing to protect home att figures when there's nobody there anyway.

To say how fiercely the content of the football club is protected, I’d really like to know if permission to publish this was sought.

The Times have Liverpool 1 up against Atletico.
Do we have to buy tomorrows paper to find out how it finished?

Would much rather Liverpool do well than any other of our teams, maybe with the exception of Leicester.

Sick of Man Utd, bored with City and the, London clubs feeling sick already.
