While an increase on the 2,583 initially announced earlier today, it represents a slight increase in the number of tickets made available to away fans for the Anfield derby compared to last season.
That is despite the Reds' capacity at Anfield increasing to 54,000 with the completion of their new main stand.

And if we did the same to them, this just shows no class. I would offer them exactly the same as previously and make a point of it.
We are EFC. We have class.

My post doesn't make sense, unless our own club, are one of the few who have continued to carry on giving the away team their full allocation, but slowly but surely money will kill the fucking game, and the special atmosphere that is usually created on such occasions.

I have been to Mordor several times and we always make loads of noise. 2002 in their Main Stand was fun, Blue and proud (can't believe that is 15 years ago).
So they will have 5,000 Norwegians there instead. I fancy us to do that rarity and come away with a win, 1-2 to the Mighty Blues

That picture still makes me chuckle. What's with the shin pads?? Sums the Red Shite up!

I know they have more points than us but I really believe we are better than them (now) collectively and man for man (for the most part). I'm not saying be gung ho, but it's time for Koeman to believe that too and get the balance right between being solid and being creative in these types of games. It's time for Barkley and Lukaku to show some arrogance and destroy them on their own turf.

No need to think about them and the reality is that they aren't the pull they think they are and no where near the team they believe they are.

I went to Hades a few weeks ago to watch them play Swansea, some Swansea friends had a spare. Very enjoyable afternoon. Two things to note.
I haven't been since Rooney début as sub, the match where he put Westervelt in the stand and flicked the V's behind his back at the mound. Then, the mound was covered in scarves, banners and flags and it was jumping.
Against Swansea less than one in five had a scarf held up when they ran out to the requiem. Very few banners and the only noticeable flags were those provided by the club for the official flag wavers to wave rather unenthusiastically until they were put away at the start of the game for the next match.
Second thing was what I consider to be a most shameful perversion of the iconic 96 blue/red children in solidarity image. Look out for it in the left-hand corner as you watch. The taller, blue 9 figure has been transformed cruelly into what looks like a scally in a black tracksuit holding hands with the smaller 6 figure, the child in red.
They never have had any judgement, common sense or class. It is shameful that this very large banner is tolerated by the club.
30 Posted 14/03/2017 at 21:36:45
Every time I read something about that fucking shower, I hate them even worse. If that's right about that banner, Peter, we should immediately take down the plague we have at Goodson.
We've bent over backwards for them for far too fucking long now. Stood by them and all they do is shit all over us. A few weeks back them and a few other teams tried to get themselves a bigger share from the overseas TV money.
Twats the fucking lot of them.

Our allocation at the hell hole has been reduced in recent seasons supposedly for health and safety reasons i.e persistent standing. I don't think we are the only club to suffer.

Age, birth date and fairly boring family lineage clearly indicated otherwise, but the compelling case put forward by others ("You both italicise words when appropriate, you must be identical", "You like a link. He likes a link. Do you deny this? I'd like to see you try and deny it" etc) and the fact we had both previously (but separately) sat through the Schwarzenegger/Devito movie of the same name, led us to decide that we had better meet up on the basis that anything is fucking possible.
Well, it was an absolute disaster. We spent the first minute sizing each other up, the second snarling and spitting baccy juice on each others boots, the third taking a slash on anything within sight.
With over half of our allocated five minutes already spent fannying about, we decided we had better get a move on and go straight to the quick-fire round.

Seinfeld or Curb? Eugene jumped in with Jerry, but Larry was my man.
Top Vinegar Taster? I called Confucius whereas Eugene could look no further than Lao Tzu.
...and so it continued:
Bumbags or backpacks?
Tits or ass?
Warzycha or Preki?
All looked lost, Damian. We could literally find no common ground whatsoever, until finally we got to 'ToffeeWebber you would be most insulted to be compared to?' and (naming no names) suddenly we were like:

Loads of blues can't get tickets for the Goodison derby so opening the Upper Bullens to our fans will enhance their hopes a bit – just as we do when we play other shite clubs.
Everton for once need to stand up in this City for once, instead of letting them call the shots all the time.
41 Posted 15/03/2017 at 12:55:47
Come on, Everton do the right thing by your own fans.

Terry, post 42:
Moderating is an esoteric art. Seems "Twat" is acceptable but I recently had one pulled for "Vag" in another context. Maybe it's due to flagging of comments.

"Twat, what's wrong with twat?" - David Cameron.
The early Americans had an aversion to the word "cock". Hence, they don't have cocks but roosters. (Did you not get the joke about Rooster Coburn in "True Grit"?)
Stopcocks, which we now call taps, were translated to faucets.
It was still happening until fairly recently when the family Fart changed their name to Trump. I think that the old Trump is doing a great job.

Now... As long as there is some fantasy noise for 10 mins the money men have their money. Our clubs? They must laugh at us providing the soundtrack to their show.

Our boys can make enough noise as Rom scores a brace plus Barkley's ace to take all three points and stun their crowd.
