Legendary Liverpool defender agrees that ticket prices are too high

Liverpool will sorely miss CarragherOn Saturday, Liverpool fans staged a protest at the ticket prices charged for home games at Anfield, by taking part in a walkout in the 77th minute of their Premier League game against Sunderland.

Several of the people who walked out headed straight for the Transfer Tavern to celebrate the protest with a nice cold pint, although they were some unhappy faces when Jermaine Defoe struck a minute from time to give the Sunderland a point having been 2-0 down.

The supporters did attract some celebrity support in their protest after news emerged via The Guardian that ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher took part in the walkout, claiming that it was done for every football fan in the country.

The 38-year-old went onto say in the article that £77 is too much for any football match and that the prices should represent the value that football is a game for everyone, meaning it should be affordable.

One Liverpool fan in the Tavern wasn’t at the game on Saturday due to the large prices and he thinks it is time for the authorities to crack down, and he believes that whilst club’s are allowed to charge such extortionate prices, they will continue to do so.
