    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!
