The last time it is "...the financial reward that would have been expected from LFC playing their strongest team".
You assume this is regarding ticket prices yet he doesn’t mention that but does mention the game not being televised.
The clear implication is, if we played our strongest team, the ticket prices would be standard rates, and as it was made clear that we would not do that, we slashed the rates to C Team levels, and they didn't make as much revenue as expected.
As it happened, we did play our strongest team available on the night, and the players were still good enough to win the tie. He should be more concerned about why our C Team were able to beat their full strength side than complaining to the FA.
What part of us giving them £35,000 after the game are you not understanding? We gave them our share of the gate receipts. We could have kept the prices the same and the chances are they wouldn’t have gotten anymore than that.
There is no argument about what line up we fielded with regards to ticket prices because we gave them the difference.
Did they complain about ticket prices due to not playing our strongest line up? NO
Did they blame us for the game not being televised and losing money that way? YES
If they were pissed about the ticket prices then they’d have no doubt said so. But because we gave them that £35k, they can only complain about it not being on TV.
Are you going to provide any quotes that say the point was about ticket prices?...assuming you can do that properly because you can’t seem to when quoting someone on here.
Understand?! Or are you deliberately trying to have everything suit your own narratives despite it being there for you to read in black and white?!
