Liverpool shame Newcastle United after latest live TV games announced
I wouldn’t like to try and list all the ways in which Liverpool are a better run club than Newcastle United.
It would take up too much of my weekend and leave me even more frustrated and dejected than I am usually, when thinking about what Mike Ashley has done to our great club.
It isn’t just the fact Liverpool could win the Premier League and are in the Champions League knockout stages, though that would be nice.
You also have a host of other ways in which the likes of Liverpool work with their fans and do stuff to help them.
Friday saw the latest TV fixtures announced.
Liverpool’s trip to Southampton has been moved to a Friday night, instantly Liverpool released the following statement.
Official Liverpool site:
‘Liverpool FC is offering free coach travel to help supporters who will be attending the Reds’ Premier League away fixture against Southampton on Friday April 5.
The club will provide free coaches to supporters travelling to St Mary’s, with fans being asked to pay a reservation fee of £5 per seat.
All proceeds received will go to the Seán Cox appeal, to help raise vital funds to support Seán’s rehabilitation.
The coaches will depart from and return to Arkles Lane in Liverpool.
Further details will be announced in due course.’
Newcastle United saw away games moved as follows: Leicester away is now a Friday 8pm kick-off, Brighton away is now a 5.30pm Saturday teatime kick-off.
Both games it is pretty much impossible to now get back to Tyneside by public transport.
Not a word from Newcastle United, all of that extra money the club will rake in and they can’t even make a gesture like Liverpool have.
Not one word of objection either from Mike Ashley and his minions at the atrocious way Newcastle fans are being treated in terms of away games selected for TV, especially those moved away from a midweek. Arsenal away yet another, which is 8pm on a Monday night.
