Jim Boardman and Jay Reid return to discuss the latest on all things LFC from Liverpool, hoping that the Reds are going to what was an unexpected title bid back on track, as well as starting to think about the League Cup final.
Losing against Arsenal was bad enough, but the manner of it caused more frustration, the Reds side unrecognisable from the one we’ve seen getting better by the week until then. Was it a blip, a bad day at the office, or should we be giving Arsenal more praise for their part in it? Jay and Jim have their views on that.
Looking further ahead to another London trip, the League Cup final is at the end of the month and the Reds have just finished the ballot to divvy out their share of the tickets. As exciting as it is to be in a final, yet again those running the game seem intent on reminding fans of how little they matter, whether it’s those missing out or those who got tickets. They have many ways of doing this.
Before all that it’s the visit of Burnley, a chance for the Reds to get things back to where they should be - as long as they play the way we expect them to play, with the help of the twelfth man.
Also this week, as always, a chance to more observations on the phenomenon otherwise known as that lot from across the park, and their aspirations for this season and beyond.
On this week’s show:
- Just a blip?
- Is the title race over now?
- Has anyone told Arsenal the answer to that?
- League Cup final tickets
- The lucky thousands well outnumbered by those who missed out or couldn’t even get into the ballot
- LFC sell 60,000 tickets to every home game, always going to be disappointment for a final in a stadium holding around 90,000, but…
- The two clubs don’t get anything like half the allocation each anyway
- Even worse for the FA Cup
- Not hard to keep sponsors happy without giving tickets to people who don’t care about the fixture
- Same conversation every time we’re involved in either final
- Shouldn’t the tickets be going to the fans of the two clubs involved?
- That’s where most of them end up - at a huge premium
- Fans always suffer the most
- Why the move of the Wembley kick-off time?
- Makes it more of a struggle to get down or puts fans even more out of pocket
- Why the difference in how tickets are being distributed to each club’s fans?
- Why paper tickets for one club, digital for the other?
- FA and EFL asking for trouble
- Sin bins and blue cards
- Why blue? We have an idea
- Injury news - not all bad for once. Not all good either, but not all bad.
- We saw Thiago! But then we blinked.
- LFC v Burnley
