When I watch on Bein Sport, I put the Thai commentary on so I do not have to listen to the endless facts, irrelevant opinions and useless statistics they spout out. I can tell which player has the ball and who he passes it to.

Have you seen any pundit, player, spectator (apart from yourself) say it wasn’t a penalty. He put his leg right across Sterling with no hope of getting the ball. So even if you don’t believe he fouled him, he is guilty of “impeding the progress of an opponent “. Law 12

The video of that Kane dive raises an interesting question.... can both players involved in an incident be penalised at the same time?

 

Because in that instance it looks like (a) it was probably a foul, but that (b) Kane overreacted wildly to it. So doesn't that mean that it was a foul, but also simulation by Kane.

 

Does anyone know if the laws account for this?

I knew it....you have a copy of the rule book in your desk at the office. :biggrin:

my fellow esteemed members Ricky and Poohy. I've not really looked other than on here, and I obviously know better than half those crackpot pundits.

Mentioned earlier but here's the actual quote.

 

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said referee Craig Pawson made the correct decision (on the sending off).

"It's very close to me and I think it's a red card," he said. "It's clear, you saw it. It's a red card."

The difference being I'd admit all day long that's a red card.  You guys just defend blindly on everything City and tell me I've got rose tinted glasses. You can't even see empty seats.

Rubbish mate. Already said that last night I've seen them given a red, yellow and no punishment at all. Yes, I think the Kompany decision went our way on the tackle on Salah and could easily have been a red. Lucky boy and lucky us but you lot haven't been short of decision's going your way either.

 

As for empty seats. Why do you care?. Our owners keep expanding the ground to cope with the demand. They wouldn't keep expanding if it was empty all the time would they?

I find it bizarre how the champions of the EPL can not be selling out, their stadium. Even more bizarre they buy all the unallocated tickets, or is there something more sinister to that. 

They are expanding in order to host a CL final (more publicity, seeing as you can't win one 😁), obviously there is no need to expand for any other reason.

Maybe to buy more seats and pretend there are even more seats sold?

Already answered you on this earlier today. City SOLD 54k seats but 54k didnot turn up. The majority of the no shows would be seasonticket  holders who didn't show for the 4th home game in 11 days - was that Manchester documentary on last night, 'Coronation Street'?

 

Who are you referring and what makes you think somebody is doing this: "bizarre they buy all the unallocated tickets"? Don't  like coming over all Alfie-like but where's your facts?

 

We are expanding the Etihad so we can host one game. What have you been drinking today?

 

Your post was getting  wierder the longer it went on. Come on Bob, get a grip.

He's under pressure and feeling the stress. It'll go worse as the season goes on, especially if Liverpool drop any points. So give him some wiggle room

Load of shiiiite, sold tickets, what's the actual official attendance, the official attendance is always twice the amount of people actually in the stadium. 

 

It does look like the majority of season ticket holders don't exist, although my point about buying unallocated seats was in jest, I do wonder how many of those season tickets Mansour companies own.

 

.

 

So are you going to tell me they need to expand the stadium because it's always full? 

 

Grip this pal!

I'm not playing the bloody game, no pressure or stress related to football here.

It's up to your lads now anyway.

We’ve been through this several times before but here we go again.

 

City record the official attendance based on ticket sales - many clubs do. Statement from the club "The attendance figures published by the club are based on ticket sales, both match by match and seasoncards, of which the latter sold out in record time ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.”

The club announced the attendance after the game, as shown on BBC website, at 54k – that meant City sold 54k seats but clearly 54k didn’t turn up. The club generated revenue from 54k seat sales so they’re happy. So from your perspective as a Liverpool fan what EXACTLY is your concern?

 

Bob you don’t need to worry about City; we’re in very good shape as shown by the following:

 

1. City’s season tickets for this season were ALL SOLD OUT in May.

 

2. Based on the most recent details I could find (season ticket sales, 2016/17 season compiled by Talksport) we have the 4th largest amount of Season ticket holders at 40,000 (Liverpool are 8th at 25,000). “Worth bearing in mind that the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United sell less season tickets than they could do, so they can get more money from match by match prices and mainly because it also means their ‘fans’ from all over the UK and beyond can come once a season and spend a fortune in the club shops” = you get lots of tourist fans, not real staunch fans!

 

3. In terms of cost, City’s owners offer our fans incredibly low season tickets. In the most recent details I could find (Teams of the Premier League ranked by cheapest season ticket in 2017/18 (in GBP)) City offer the 4th cheapest season ticket at £299 (only Stoke, WHU and Huddersfield were cheaper); shame on Liverpool’s owners as Liverpool offer the 18th cheapest season tickets at £685 - only Arsenal and Chelsea more expensive!

Expensive day out at Liverpool is it Bob?

 

Following the 1 nil victory, after I’d watched the match details on City’s website (free to all) I went on Liverpool’s website to watch the match details there as I wanted to see how Liverpool portrayed the game. You’ve got to subscribe and pay to watch the videos on Liverpool’s website. Shame on Liverpool’s owners for ripping of the Liverpool fans – cheapskate owners!
