I appreciate that it was only a suggestion, but it won’t be a viable option for many in and around Merseyside.
As for the costs, if all the money was going to the Liverpool, then I would probably cough up, but it’s not. And let’s not forget, the £14.95 per match is on top of the monthly subscription fee for Sky/BT/Virgin.
Lord knows what Sky will charge in addition to the day/month pass on NowTV. And that’s not even an option on BT.
However you are quite right, going to the match would cost a heck of a lot more. But then you don’t get the whole experience watching on TV at home especially as the games are being played in empty stadiums. The artificial crowd noises just makes matters worse.
And if you go to the match you don’t have to listen to Tyler, Carragher, Neville and co. droning on with their inane drivel. We should be paid to listen to them.
