    I don't think I'll ever understand the videoing mid game. Just fucking watch the game and enjoy it. Your camera phone footage will turn out shite anyway and no one will want to watch it!

    Same where I was. I am all for people enjoying the game in whatever format they want. From YNWA to the end of the match I had a man in his 50s in front of me with a camera in my face. He honestly watched the game through his phone. As a race we have stopped living in the now so much that it has got to have a detrimental impact on all of our mental health. Enjoy the moment you are in and relive the memories rather than miss the moment you are in trying to capture it for the future. Bizzarre way of living.

    It is actually uncomfortable, well it is for me when you are watching the game and contributing to the atmosphere to have a lad video you from 12 inches away. The proportion of people going to sample the atmosphere in comparison to those looking to bring it is so skewed and that is what has killed the atmosphere.

    I love this club with all my heart as do we all but I am really really struggling to justify that love to myself, more and more everyday. The club has no soul.

    Its got worse every season for a while in my opinion

    The club and the match gets further out of touch/reach for many regular match goers

    Cost is a huge factor for many

    The club trademarking the liverbird and going after people using it makes me sick

    The same club who have no problem using images of fans iconic banners to sell the image of the club

    Others will feel different

    But the fanbase in the ground has changed and its reflected in the atmosphere

    Not sure if there's a solution to that Gerry, unless the people who create the banners put a little copyright notice on the banner and put the club on formal notice that they can't use the images without permission etc. but then you'll probably see the flags and banners quickly get banned and replaced by corporate versions owned by the club, with official banner men.



    Think there's a bit of "I was there and here's the evidence" going on tbh.... that said, some will just genuinely want to relive the moment I suppose.

    Perhaps it's time there was a photo and no-photo section at Anfield (although I doubt it will come along any faster than an official signing section) ?

    I remember my first few games. It was a poor camera phone. I took a few videos and watched them over and over for weeks. Needless to say, I didn't have much of a life back then.

    Fair play to him getting that exposure. Maybe it’s because I am older but my God that show is anything but funny. The skits are dreadful.

    If somebody could come up with a replacement for Coutinho line we'd be laughing.

    The Pernicious One is delighted by this new song for the ages, at last a rival to the best midfield in the world!
