      Planning a visit to Anfield in Spring 2015
      Sep 27, 2014 06:28:31 pm
      Not sure if this is the correct place for this. Mods if it is not correct, please move.

      I am planning to fly from the States to Liverpool in 2015. Trying decide when I should go over. I would like to go sometime between end of March and beginning of May. What game would be the best to see?

      March 21st vs Manchester United
      April 11th vs Newcastle
      May 2nd vs QPR (leaning towards this since my birthday is the 5th)
      May 16th vs Crystal Palace

      Also, I want to see the city of Liverpool and meet up with some fellow Reds. This will be my first trip to Liverpool and really looking forward to going and see LFC play in their home.

      Thank you in advance for all opinions.

      Absolutely WAHS, if you're going to come over for a match you may as well go to a big one Hun.  Getting tickets won't be easy though, unless one of our amazing locals come up with the goodies  ;D

      Don't think we'll win the league that game - probably be against QPR! ;)

      After talking to Kenny, I decide to go to the Newcastle game on April 11th so I can go to the Hillsborough Memorial while I am there. Now to get a plane ticket and a ticket to the match. This is going to be one of the best trips I ever take in my life.

      After the news of Gerrard leaving the club, I will definitely be going to Liverpool no matter what it takes.

      How do I get a ticket for the game? I want to start getting everything in order. I will be purchasing the plane ticket at the end of the month.

      I am still going to the game against Newcastle. I was thinking about going to the last game of the season, but think that will be a hard ticket to get since it is the last game Stevie will be playing.

      I managed to get tickets for Liverpool vs QPR on 2nd of May. As this is going to be my first visit to Liverpool I could use some information (I believe locals can give me far better tips then any guide):

      - accommodation - prefer hostels
      - places that must be seen in the city
      - good pubs and for the evening some good nightclubs
      - pubs before and after game
      - places to get good food - would prefer something that is local food not foreign kitchen

      Any tip will be appreciated  :)

      What hotels are close to the stadium/city centre? I am hoping to do some sight seeing of Liverpool as well as catch a game. Really hope I can get a ticket to the game. I am going to the LFC vs Newcastle game on April 11th. Will also do a tour of Anfield while I am there. Any other suggestions of things to do or see while there?

      I booked the flight to Liverpool. I have a ticket to the memorial service. I will booking a room this week. I have a couple people making contacts with people they know to get me a ticket.

      I read a few people on this forum say they were going over from another country and people on the forum stepped up and helped get them a ticket. I am not sure what makes them different than me. Oh well, I am going to keep being me. At this point, I don't even really care if I meet anyone on this forum. I am going to have a great time doing sightseeing and enjoying what the city has to offer.

      Newcastle game isn't for another 5/6 weeks.  I'd imagine people are keeping an ear out - not to mention returns don't become available for a few weeks.  Just an hour ago I heard of another spare for tonight so things always pop up at random times.  Just because people haven't responded immediately in the ticket thread doesn't mean people aren't keeping an ear out.

      I didn't get myself a ticket for Newcastle as my wife is due to give birth around that time.  Assuming I get the go ahead I will also be looking for a last minute ticket to get there. Don't panic! Enjoy planning your trip!

      I did get a ticket, thanks to Misty. I am looking forward to the game. I also got a ticket to the Hillsborough Memorial service. I am going to do the Anfield tour while I am there. It is going to be a trip of a lifetime.

      One big reason I chose to go this year was I wanted to see Gerrard play at Anfield before he retires. After the incident on Sunday, I will not be able to accomplish this. I have saved for a while to fund this trip and will still enjoy my trip. A little disappointed that I won't see him play though.

      My trip is almost here. I met a couple who live in Canada while Liverpool was in Chicago last year. The guy is originally from Liverpool, he contacted his brother to show me around the city while I am there. It is going to be a great trip.

      Hope to meet some of the people on the forum at some point on this trip.

      I arrive on April 10th in the Morning. I will be there for a week. I am taking a train in the evening of April 15th after the Memorial Service to London. It would be great to meet up to put a face to the username and see parts of the city of the beaten path.

      Go down to Melwood and pop your head over the fence. Least that way you will be able to say you seen him play ;)

      Anyway Firepool, I am off work until Tuesday now so won't be around the city centre until then in the daytime. I will DM my number across to you though so do not feel in anyway embarrassed to text me me for any advice on anything you may need whether it be a good place to eat, drink or just somewhere to visit. I will help you out no problem.

      I will be at the game on Monday night though and will be drinking beforehand wherever Cas (Ms G) and anybody else off here who is going is? I'll probably be going out in the city after it also.

      Hopefully catch up Monday or Tuesday then and as I said, really don't feel embarrassed to text me for any help or advice you need when you are here.

      Enjoy your time in Liverpool!!
