      Wow, ok. Thanks for putting words in my mouth. I’ll make sure to sit on my hands and cheer for...wait, who’s playing this match?!

      I’d appreciate you holding your judgment of foreign fans on a public message board when you’ve never met me.  I’m sure there are plenty out there as you describe, but I can assure you my passion for Liverpool and sports in general surpasses that of the vast majority.

      I have friends from Liverpool that grew up supporters, have met numerous local fans at bars, and have fellow American friends who also adopted the team in our childhood, and they’ve always been excited to be around other fans regardless of their nationality or story.  I’d expect that supporters would appreciate the popularity of the team and the game around the world, but perhaps that’s not the case.  I do hate the Red Sox with a passion, but it’s hard not to respect what John Henry has done to grow the brand internationally.  Don’t be insular, my man - it’s a great multicultural world we live in, and we all love the Reds!

      No problem with foreign fans just people who jump on the wagon for a big game & expect the full Anfield "experience" like it's some sort of cringey Disney land / bucket list event.

      You said it makes sense to pay over the odds for big games (hockey and baseball finals) and that just makes no sense to me. I go to what I can and what I can afford to because I'll support my team against anyone & won't decide to just jump on the wagon for a final or whatever.

      I've been to 7/8 games this season but haven't had a chance getting Utd tickets as they'd have been hoovered up by the touts to accommodate "I was there" crowd who are willing to pay through the nose for the full Disneyland experience

      Understandable. I’ve been a season ticket holder for multiple teams and pay for regular season but then also willing to pay more for playoffs is all I meant. I’m not a bandwagon fan of any team (my teams hadn’t won sh*t until 2018, and I’m 34), don’t worry :). And I’m coming to Anfield, not terrible Disneyland, and I can afford to pay for it luckily, so yeah. Not sure what to say dude.

      Hi everyone!

      I and my girlfriend are flying over to Liverpool from Sweden for a holiday and I want to surprise her and ask her to marry me at Anfield so I would really appreciate any kind of help of getting two tickets to the home game against Aston Villa.

      Fair enough mate.

      Just to make you aware, if you are buying from a tout I'd be extremely vigilant - In the last week there's been a "fan update", which is basically a request from the club for people who have certain criteria on their members cards to validate these cards using photo ID, proof of address etc

      It's fairly well known that touts have numerous cards in different made up names which they use to purchase tickets with, as club policy is only 1 ticket per card. Anyway the deadline for the update has since passed and the club have revealed that 20% of the selected 'members' have failed the update and all tickets on those cards have been cancelled (rumoured to be around the 1000 mark).

      These tickets were then put back into a sale earlier this week and bought by other members (how many of those will be legit & how many will be touts I'm not sure)

      But I'd definitely watch out - I've not bought from touts before and I'm not sure on the ins & outs of these websites, but as I said there is potentially 1000 tickets out there which have now been cancelled, presuming a lot of them will be touts which may have been / still are for sale on these sites. If you do buy from somebody I'd 100 percent recommend you get there early & request they walk & wait as you go through the turnstile

      The way we're playing mate there's a pretty decent chance we could end up mathematically winning the league against Villa. If that is the case then there will 0 spares knocking about unless you're willing to pay the big money

      Yeah I’ve heard bad things from friends over there and the boards, so that was my thought too regarding walking to the gate...which is the same thing I do here in the States if I’m paying a lot from a scalper.

      Are all tickets on cards then?  I am slightly confused by the return logistics of this and how you can verify legitimacy from stubhub, fanpass, livefootballtix, etc.

      Yep I think about 95% of match tickets will be on Members cards / Season cards.

      I think the only paper tickets knocking about will be the Local General Sale tickets & hospitality / corporate tickets which are dotted around different sections of the stadium.

      I presume for return logistics it'll just be a case of meeting the tout after the game & handing him his card back. A lot of them knock about the pubs / chip shops close to the ground so I imagine you'll just meet up there. Members cards can be replaced for a £5 fee so anyway so I don't think touts are too bothered about losing an odd card here or there if they're already flogging £50 tickets for £300+

      I never asked for a ticket - simply advice, which has been helpful.

      Understand your point about games, but since I’m paying to fly across the ocean, booking hotels, and taking time off from work, I want to see a rivalry game and not an overmatched bottom of the table team group pummeled.  It would still be a great experience, but not the same.  Competitive soccer and the atmosphere in the big matches makes paying extra and going through the hassle well worth it - as it does to pay for NHL Stanley Cup Finals or MLB playoff games if that makes any sense.


      I'll be honest just demanding to go to what you call a "rivalry game" because you're spending whatever amount makes you sound a bit of a tw*t!

      The last two games I was at, was against teams at the bottom. We won both games 5-0, and it was great. I would prefer to go to a game where the risk of losing is minimal. I've only lost one Liverpool game in 35 years, and when you've paid the amount you have, trust me, you don't want us to lose.

      If ya genuine,do a stadium tour.Maybe contact the club first they might let ya propose in the dressing room or elsewhere? It is the game before  The Hillsborough commemoration so things maybe different and a proposal may not be appropriate.

      Good afternoon all,

      It’s last minute, but I just got confirmation to have a couple days off at the end of the month, so I’m trying to go to the west ham game in London on the 29th of January. Would anyone happen to have a solo spare ticket in the away supporters section? I’m a card holding member if that helps!

      Thanks in advance,

      there will be literally thousands of young men and women in the local area that cant afford to go to the game even though they can probably see the stadium from their bedroom window. These are the same one who do make the atmosphere when they go so no don't bother coming here expecting to be entertained just because its cost a few quid. Symbolic of the problem of modern football so many of the wrong people get tickets

      That's just not true at times. I've seen, in the ground, foreign fans with song sheets, belting out all game and seen many a local turn up ten minutes later, leave 10 minutes early and their only contribution was to yell 'For fucks sake' a few times.

      I'm not local, my love for the club comes from my grandad, an Irish navvy, whose tales of the city and the club, I took to my heart.

      And I'm glad to say the city and the club have never let me down. From the friendliness, even from bluenose cabbies, to the fact, on match days, when I've had to get a hotel in The Wirral, I've never caught a bus through the tunnel, I've always had a stranger stop and give me a lift.

      And yet on this thread, I've seen the opposite. Some small-minded nonsense that needs to be reigned in. Liverpool has always seemed so inclusive to me, the club and the city, welcoming all, and some of what has gone on in just hasn't sat well with me.

      So welcome everyone, tickets are a bi*ch to get and I'm in a position where I can't justify the cost at present but if you do get one, enjoy it, even if you're served up sh*te, my first game at Anfield was a 2-2 draw with Swindon Town.

      Embarrassing is turning up for less than three quarters of the game and your only contribution is moaning.

      Has he stated which stand / block the ticket is in?

      If so he should be on the autocup scheme, just ask him for some previous autocup confirmation emails showing his full name etc and you should (touch wood) be alright

      Perfect, thank you mate.

      I'll ask for the seat/section he's in and chase some confirmation emails, too. I've seen some emails that have ended being dodgy - what specifics should be on there apart from name to make sure it's legit?
