Honestly, Hull and Palace are the only ones there (if it were Saints for example) that I'd be confident of. That's a very tough run.

We normally fall apart at Christmas or March.

Stoke at home last game, could be for survival.

Isn't this thread a bit like Arsenal's annual premiership title celebrations..... a bit premature!

Arsenal Vs Liverpool as the opener.... tasty!

Klipperdy out by Christmas?

If I just happened to be on Merseyside in August, what would the chance be that there would be tickets over after the season tickets, members and fan club card holders all have a go for the home opener against Burnley on August 20? I suspect close to zero. Hospitality packages are available now, but at around $700 for our family of three, I'll have to say no, bit of a budget breaker, I've already signed up as a National Trust member of Bermuda at $50 for the family as a trip cost cutting endeavor.

I'm sure you will find a scally selling them in the local boozer? It'll be a sell-out, after all - next year is your year, no?

'Next year' is always our year. Like tomorrow, it never comes. Meh.

I fully expect the rules to be amended to allow LFC to compete in the Champions League and facilitate a quadruple.

You'd have more chance of winning the Grand National, even though you'll arrive more than 2 months after the race has finished........

You'd be better off trying the minute tickets go on general sale. Or joining the LFC supporters club in your region. Would this be yours? LFC Seattle

Cheers, it would, but not sure what benefit over just being a regular Liverpool 'member' this gives, as they require a Seattle membership of $25.00 per ticket holder on top of the 27 or 28 pound membership of the club itself.
So I am wondering if it is worth investing in a club membership direct, of around 75 pounds for three of us, but with still no guarantee of any tickets, just access, should there be any left, to try to get them.

I definitely see your point re: the cost of membership, but from experience, Supporters clubs often have access to tickets before they go on general sale. The requirement for each ticket holder to have a membership may be a club requirement to prevent resale of tickets, and to have a more accurate record of ticket holders.

Careful with supporters clubs. As a member of the United one out here I am aware that often the number of tickets a supporters club can apply for is directly proportional to the amount of members that supporters club has (signed up by a certain cut off date prior to the season kicking off - we have a big push to get or guys to sign up early). This is further complicated by what class of game it is.....

We didn't seem to have any issues like this in our Arsenal SC. We always managed to get any tickets we wanted.
