      Fans Back at Anfield

      2,000 fans permitted at Anfield after lockdown ends.

      https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/nov/26/football-fans-can-return-in-liverpool-and-london-but-not-in-manchester-and-other-areas-tiers

      Fair question here: "Newcastle’s manager, Steve Bruce, criticised the whole setup: “Why only 2,000 or 4,000 fans in tier 2 or 1 when we have the capacity to safely house 20,000 at St James’ Park [capacity just over 52,000]? I think that’s unfair."

      When it has come to rules with CoVid, there has been a whole lot of arbitrary.

      Now.....who determines which 2,000 fans?

      I imagine it will be season ticket holders in a ballot like they do with cup finals

      2000 is a bit of a joke though inside Anfield. But better than nothing, will be nice to hear some noise

      I should have added this comment from Jürgen:

      "The problem I have at the moment is that I struggle to put faith in any kind of announcement. And I don’t understand why we would now have 2,000 people in a stadium of 60,000 people, and 2,000 people in a stadium of 9,000 people. But I’m not surprised that it is not finally thought through, to be honest. But it’s good news, a good sign, and I take it, 100 percent.”

      No chance

      Unnecessary travel isnt allowed
      Travelling between different tiers isnt allowed either


      It will be a long time until away travel is allowed I'd guess

      Once again the powers at be are being over cautious, 2,000 fans in a 60,000 stadium is f***in pathetic to be honest, yes it is a start but ffs why not 8,000, 8,000 will make a better atmosphere than a paltry 2,000, and still be safe if positioned around the lower perimeter with spacing between seats, I’m sure 8000 fans live in and around the locale and within the safe levels of Gov guidelines?

      I bet there would be more than 2,000 going to the f***in opera !

      I imagine it's do with travel. Easy to space say 8,000 out across Anfield but a bit harder to keep them apart before or after the match.

      With distancing of 2 metres which would be four seats between people and the next row sitting directly in the middle of the row in front it'd be approximately a fifth of seats used so for a 60000 seater 12000 should be the number.

      I think say 10% of ground capacity would have been fairer, for a stadium of almost 60,000, 2000 is a piss take, still its a start.

      If only we had Corbyn, oh the utopia we would now have!! ;-)

      In all seriousness this government have been sh*t in dealing with this, but only because they have listened too much to these muppet SAGE scientists who are all in the pocket of the pharmaceutical industry and stand to make a fortune from the vaccines.


      One thing I read was that it was 2000 or half the capacity, but I'm not sure how they are applying that, is it the lower of those two or the higher? It literally makes no sense as a stadium with 4000 capacity can have be half full and that safe, but its not safe for a 60000 stadium to have 30000. Who came up with that figure, yepp its those SAGE muppets sticking a finger in the air again, same as 2 metre rule, rule of 6 etc etc.

      It surely has to do with transit but why it isn’t a percentage of capacity who the hell knows....oh I know, because no one knows their ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to this pandemic and what’s logical.

      Think keeping it to 2 or 4k will be because of things like transport links and how congested the area is. Somewhere like Old Trafford could probably allow for a lot more with it being fairly out in the sticks and having decent transport links, whereas Anfield is slap bang in the middle of a residential area with a few bus routes and no train station for a couple of miles.

      Step in the right direction at the very least. Didn't think we'd have full crowds back by the end of the season but I'm starting to get a little bit of hope that we could see full capacity for the maybe the last few home games with a vaccine around the corner.

      Still devastated with how the party of all parties was stolen from us last season, so the prospect of winning #20 in front of a full Anfield is keeping me going through all this sh*te. Just need the reds to keep performing on the pitch and the government to maybe get a few things right between now and spring. Must say I've got much more confidence in the former than the latter!

      Personally I can't see the British Government listening to advice on how to run their business from an EU National at this time. And I definitely can't see a British Government listening to advice from a German National at any time.

      We are one of the lucky clubs where fans are allowed. So if it's going to last any length of time, then the first games have to be strictly reserved for those living nearest the stadium, so travel can be limited to the minimum necessary, walking distance if possible.

      I wouldn't be getting too annoyed about the numbers tbh. People have to understand it's a sensitive time for opening any event to the public. Either it goes well and it will be increased soon afterwards, or we'll be back where we started soon enough. We have been handed a head start on crowds against our main rivals. Let's keep it that way.

      It should have been a percentage pro rata to the clubs ability to 'cope' with that and seats available.  Well done F.A, you again prove you give F.A to this problem,  yeah gov has come to this, but what the f**k are you being paid stupendess money for.

      It is a start I suppose, the clubs obviously need the revenue, 2000 fans does not seem many for a stadium like Anfield to say the least. We are  still a long way from normality, whatever that is ! I think it is only fair that home fans only should be admitted to the respective ground for at least the time being. Maybe the stadium will reach half capacity to see the Reds retain the trophy next May, here's hoping .

      It's not a lot of fans, but for a start, it's better than no fans. 2000 could fill some small grounds. The small number is probably trial/pilot/test, and if all goes well, gives a platform to scale to a higher number. And if it fails, the cap is limited.

      No mate, as you know football has a different agenda to everything else..in that most exist in their own bubbles, but in saying that, IF borders were to close then for the sake of everyone’s health and happiness I’d gladly put football on the back burner for the good of the country and get rid of this virus and any doubt and confusion that’s happening now.

      In choosing the 2000 via a season ticket holder lottery, is there any chance the club restricts a season ticket holder from say, London, from attending the match? Would it have to be only Merseyside residents? (understanding the person holding the ticket isn't always whose name is on it).

      Liverpool Football Club is planning to welcome supporters back to Anfield for the Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday December 6.

      Club planning for supporters to return at Wolves game
      Priority is public health and safety throughout new process
      2,000 tickets available
      Applications from Liverpool City Region only
      Paperless tickets using mobile phone technology
      Fans encouraged to take COVID-19 test ahead of game


      The Liverpool City Region has been placed in Tier 2 restrictions, so Anfield could be permitted to operate with a maximum of 2,000 supporters, in the interest of public health and safety.

      The club has been working closely with its city partners, Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and Spirit of Shankly to create a robust plan which is in line with government guidance and prioritises the safety of the local community, supporters, staff, players and emergency services.

      Those plans will need to be ratified by the council’s Ground Safety Advisory Group next week.

      All city partners are encouraging those supporters who do attend this game to take a test either the day before or day of the game. Anfield’s Kop Bar will continue to be one of the city’s mass testing centres and will be open on matchdays.

      A minimum of 75 per cent of the 2,000 tickets available for the Wolves fixture will be used for general admission, which is aligned to the ratio used when the stadium is at full capacity. The remaining tickets will be allocated to hospitality supporters, players and to meet contractual obligations. Only Anfield’s Main Stand will be in use for the Wolves fixture.

      LFC will launch a ballot process to allocate the tickets available for this fixture. Guidance and support from the city’s public health team has outlined that the ballot will only be open to supporters who live within the Liverpool City Region. Supporters must also be a season ticket holder or current official Member with 19 credits from the 2018-19 Premier League season who have completed Fan Update.

      Ticket prices for games with a significantly reduced capacity will not be set at the usual price points. They are based on a weighted average of general admission and seasonal ticket prices across the stadium. An adult general admission ticket will cost £44.92 and concessional ticket prices will also be based on the same weighted average calculation.

      Fans can enter the ballot via an online system in the coming days, which will require them to provide their details and those they wish to attend with. Supporters will be allocated an individually-spaced seat to minimise the risk to public health and fellow supporters.

      Before entering the ballot, fans must refer to a new supporter code of conduct and, if successful, complete a health declaration questionnaire at the point of ticket purchase to ensure they comply with the new guidelines that will be in place to make Anfield as safe as possible for everybody present.

      The club will also be rolling out NFC technology to manage access and understand who is in the stadium. The use of NFC technology will allow fans to gain access to the stadium using an electronic ticket on their smartphone to minimise physical contact.

      The ticket ballot application process and supporter code of conduct will be launched in the coming days on a new dedicated website hub which will provide full guidance

      The Liverpool City Region has been placed in Tier 2 restrictions, so Anfield could be permitted to operate with a maximum of 2,000 supporters, in the interest of public health and safety.

      The club has been working closely with its city partners, Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and Spirit of Shankly to create a robust plan which is in line with government guidance and prioritises the safety of the local community, supporters, staff, players and emergency services.

      Those plans will need to be ratified by the council’s Ground Safety Advisory Group next week.

      All city partners are encouraging those supporters who do attend this game to take a test either the day before or day of the game. Anfield’s Kop Bar will continue to be one of the city’s mass testing centres and will be open on matchdays.

      A minimum of 75 per cent of the 2,000 tickets available for the Wolves fixture will be used for general admission, which is aligned to the ratio used when the stadium is at full capacity. The remaining tickets will be allocated to hospitality supporters, players and to meet contractual obligations. Only Anfield’s Main Stand will be in use for the Wolves fixture.

      LFC will launch a ballot process to allocate the tickets available for this fixture. Guidance and support from the city’s public health team has outlined that the ballot will only be open to supporters who live within the Liverpool City Region. Supporters must also be a season ticket holder or current official Member with 19 credits from the 2018-19 Premier League season who have completed Fan Update.

      Ticket prices for games with a significantly reduced capacity will not be set at the usual price points. They are based on a weighted average of general admission and seasonal ticket prices across the stadium. An adult general admission ticket will cost £44.92 and concessional ticket prices will also be based on the same weighted average calculation.

      Fans can enter the ballot via an online system in the coming days, which will require them to provide their details and those they wish to attend with. Supporters will be allocated an individually-spaced seat to minimise the risk to public health and fellow supporters.

      Before entering the ballot, fans must refer to a new supporter code of conduct and, if successful, complete a health declaration questionnaire at the point of ticket purchase to ensure they comply with the new guidelines that will be in place to make Anfield as safe as possible for everybody present.

      The club will also be rolling out NFC technology to manage access and understand who is in the stadium. The use of NFC technology will allow fans to gain access to the stadium using an electronic ticket on their smartphone to minimise physical contact.

      The ticket ballot application process and supporter code of conduct will be launched in the coming days on a new dedicated website hub which will provide full guidance

      Wonder if this ballot is going to be a trial for the new ticketing process when things get back to normal. They were touting the idea of a ballot replacing some of the late sales in a survey they sent out last season. Was supposed to be a new ticketing platform being launched for this season too before all the COVID kicked off

      Think keeping it to 2 or 4k will be because of things like transport links and how congested the area is. Somewhere like Old Trafford could probably allow for a lot more with it being fairly out in the sticks and having decent transport links, whereas Anfield is slap bang in the middle of a residential area with a few bus routes and no train station for a couple of miles.

      This is spot on.  2,000 indeed isn't a lot inside the stadium but it's probably quite a lot before the match having a substantial meal in The Arkles/chippy/pie shop etc.

      If everybody dropped from space into their seat I'm sure a lot more could be accomodated but the world doesn't work like that.

      Yeah, it will be interesting to see what happens. Technically - at the moment - there are no season ticket holders because the club didn't sell any season tickets for this season, so it will be interesting to see what happens if/when they do decide to reinstate season ticketing and how they do it - ie do they just go back to those who had a season ticket last season or do it in a different way

      This is easy for me to say as I live in Australia but I reckon we should f**k the cu*ts off and boycott going back to the games until they sort this VAR sh*t off. Turning people off in their droves this fkn VAR..might make a statement that we find it totally unacceptable and it needs fixing or getting rid of straight away. I'm not just talking about our Club, talking about the others boycotting as well. Stick it right up them! So sick of getting ripped!!!!

      Definitely needs to be some form of organized action across the board. Think it would be impossible to have universal boycotts though as it's hard enough trying to organize a boycott at one club, let alone getting another 19 PL clubs on board.

      I think protests / banners would probably be the best way forward, maybe centred around the big TV fixtures once everything is back to normal. Best way for people to send a message without having to miss the match

      Frankly, there is more chance of snow falling in Darwin in December.

      Certain clubs fans who promote cheating and diving in our sport, tried the protest stunt at games halfway through last season. A snap, badly managed, disorganised VAR protest was held by the home fans during one game. When one of their opponents was dismissed for serious foul play in the second half on the advice of the VAR, the protest was laughed out of town. They didn't boycott though, they all still turned up to see fair play in action, until such time as they were locked out by something they knew nothing about.

      VAR is an irreversible part of the game, and it's doing the job it's supposed to do. It's just kept us in the position we started yesterday in, and it helped push us over the line last season. Wrong decisions are being corrected, so if you're waiting for VAR to go somewhere, you'll be waiting.

      The lucky ones successful for the Wolves game  are ineligible from attending future home games, until all those who miss out have attended a game instead. The Kop and Main Stand will be open for games, until the current limits change.

      In many ways I think this was the defining match of our year given how much it spurred us and Origi on not just in the league but in Europe. And yes, when all is said and done, Pickford will only ever be remembered for that moment. No wonder he lashed out at Virgil the way he did when these images constantly plays on his mind. In front of a raucous Kop as well...oh dear Jordan.

      Or stand. Or sing. Or leave your seat. But you are expected to lock yourself up in a mini balaclava for 3-4 hours. In an outdoor environment, in the freezing cold. Given that I struggle to wear them for 3-4 minutes, it wouldn't be for me.

      By the sounds of things, there's no dignity about any of this at all. It will probably be more fun watching it the way we have since March.

      D’ya know what I reckon them pair of absolute KUNTS Pickford & Richarlison  had this moment tattooed on their minds when they committed ABH on Virgil & Thiago, ppl will say, don’t be so ridiculous, but just think about it for a mo, their world was turning to sh*t that day and they couldn’t bare it, they couldn’t bare the thought of us shitting in their kettle by going joint top, since then they have slid back into mid-table mediocrity and their small club syndrome, whilst we are still top despite being decimated by injuries ,

      Funny how all the hype they had has suddenly been silent, horrible kunts, that quote on their sh*t badge.....Nil satis Nilis optimum...means, No Chance No Hope, it’s quite appropriate that they have a helter skelter on there too, forever sliding down !

      Not long after Shanks became manager and the singing Kop became part of our heritage, there was a trumpet/bugle player that was resident in the Kop end(no doubt ex military) and used to trumpet “The Charge” whenever we went on the attack. :lmao:
      Even funnier than that, whenever one of the opposition players got injured you would hear the sound of “The last post” blowing across Anfield... :lmao:
      It could only happen in Liverpool  ;D
      Another fascinating story from my old mans memory bank

      Just watched the penalty we scored against Mitdylland without the crowd noise. Apart from the net moving, there was no other sound. It must be the quietest response of all time, to a goal we've scored at Anfield.

      Well done to the fans last night. They were rewarded after all the head wrecking  regulations they were put through. You made 2,000 sound like a full house.
