Playing on 26th December, 28th and then January first. That's an absolute skull-cracker... luckily for us, two of these games are at home, but still... :eh?:

As for the run-in, I don't think I've ever witnessed such a tough one since I follow LFC, at least on paper.
It is a funny run-in - soft April, tougher May. Most seasons, the April matches end up being more decisive, though obviously in a season like the past one that is not the case. I am with ISMF, those 7 games in 21 days could define much of the season.

Yeah but aren’t all teams facing this, also it will be moved around due to TV

Light membership allows you an opportunity to buy tickets for all games but there are restrictions. The Arsenal and Spurs games will probably require a certain number of credits from last season for you to be eligible. This is usually set at 4 games. The Norwich game is unlikely to require any credits from last season and there will be a bulk sale for members covering all games in the first half of the season. This is usually held in mid July. There is an additional members sale held roughly 2 weeks before each game and tickets will pop up randomly on the ticket site right up until the day before kick off.

Demand last season was insanely high and it was very difficult to get tickets via members sales. It won't be any easier next season. The system is infested with organised touting and ticket bots. I wouldn't advise people to take out new memberships until the ticket system is overhauled or the ground is expanded. You will likely be wasting your money. If you want to be sure of getting a ticket early enough to book travel, hotels etc then hospitality is your best bet. Please don't buy from touts. They are cunts.
Thank you very much :-)

No idea.

Should be relatively easy to get one though. City won't sell all theirs, Manchester traffic and that. There'll be reds everywhere.

Right lads, I'll be in Liverpool (first time in my life!) for the Arsenal game in August. last I checked, The Carlsberg Dugout hospitality is sold out leaving the more expensive package only available. My question is, besides hospitality, how am i going to get the tickets besides relying on hospitality and breaking the bank (I am from Singapore by the way)? (Not gonna support touts because they are the scums of the earth)

You will struggle unless one of the regulars on here can sort you out. The Carlsberg Dug Out is back up this morning at a mere £559. Hospitality prices have gone mad this season. They can basically now charge what they like because demand is so high. You won't get tickets through membership because you'll need credits from last season for Arsenal. Coincidentally at the Arsenal game last season I was sat next to a guy from Singapore who organised tours to see Liverpool games. Don't know if that's an option?

The 30 competitive games we'll be playing (potentially) next season in addition to these 38 gives 2019/20 the chance to be our most intensive season since..... (67 games in 1983/84). Bigger squad needed.

My advice would be to keep looking at Hospitality, though it costs more - at least its all guaranteed.

I may have a spare for Arsenal as it is bank holiday weekend - some of my friends may not be going - but I will only know nearer the time. I will definitely be going - booked in our family diary.

PM me closer to the time if you still don't have a ticket.

Thanks for the info, will definitely consider the option

I am in Liverpool from the 8th to 10th of August. If I dont get a ticket for the game, where is a good place for an 17 years old (German)?

Try the site below for accommodation.
As for watching the game in a pub you have the underage drinking laws to think about.
I can't see you having problems making friends quickly with the fans.

So can I go into a pub without drinking alcohol or do I have to search for another place to watch the game if I dont get a ticket, like a coffee shop or sth like this?

You can order soft drinks in pubs at 17. No problem. Does anybody have an answer to the question whether clubs/ bars might check his ID at the door and turn him away?
I don't believe so but our local forum members might know better.

I’d be very surprised if you’re asked for ID at a pub say for example the park or the Albert outside the Kop (they’re so busy if you look over 18 then I don’t think you’ll have an issue)

However if you’re going into a bar or a club in the city centre I would imagine it would be more stricter with the policy.

If you’re 17 and look 12 however you could have issues wherever you go.

Most bars (probably all, really) showing the game in the City Centre will have doormen on, not to mention it will be a friday night. There are plenty of options in the city centre and as long as he doesn't look like a kid he'll get in one of them.

He could go to Dale St and get in a pub like the Vernon arms and I've never been ID'd in there. It's not the best place to watch footy but a pretty safe option. Lady of Mann is another option on the same street, as is the Excelsior if they're showing it.

Hmm the fixtures not really coinciding with my trip to the UK. I was hoping that there would be a home match on the weekend of 7 Sep but no games that weekend. Is contemplating shifting my work schedule abit so I can go for the match on 14 Sep for Newcastle. How likely are the fixtures going to change to the point there might suddenly be a match on the 7th or 8th Sep weekend?

It's the International games that weekend so there will be no PL games played.

We start the season in 10th, alphabetically. 2 places higher than last year. Good omen don't you think? The pre-season table is Everton's only chance to gloat.

You forget the Transfer window cup.... That they seem to win every year but it moves them no higher.

International supporter here. What are my best option to get ticket for the community shield match? Seem like only official members with 19 or more match could purchase on 22 July?
