Football Without Football is Nothing

Posted: May 8, 2014 in Articles

The ‘Football without Fans is Nothing’ campaign to lower ticker prices is an admirable and just one. The slogan encapsulates a truth that if you take the emotion and support of the fans out the game you remove the key ingredient that makes it the most popular sport in the world.

However, a quick comparison of the atmosphere and fans’ reactions in the respective Sunderland and Spurs games at Anfield reveals another truth.

Football without football is also nothing.

Ultimately everything stems from what’s happening on the pitch. You know, that football stuff. For all the imploring of Rodgers (I’ll let him off) and the ‘real fan’ police there’s, for me, no denying that the catalyst for 75% of fan anxiety is what we’re witnessing or have witnessed on that lush green carpet in L4.  It doesn’t come from nowhere.
