You might have heard that Liverpool will be sending out the kids for their FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury Town. That Jürgen Klopp and the first team players will be heading off for their winter break.
Lots of people have had opinions on it, but the only ones that really matter from our point of view are Klopp’s and Liverpool’s, and if they think it’s important the first team players get a break then we’re in full agreement.
However, given that it will be Neil Critchley and a youth side against mid-table League One opposition in a tournament the club have clearly signalled isn’t a priority, it’s nice to see the news that ticket prices are being cut.
Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round replay, set for Anfield on Tuesday, February 4th, will cost adult fans just £15, while teens will be charged £5 and kids just £1 to attend—and this will apply to both home and away fans.
According to The Athletic’s James Pearce, supporters groups from both clubs were consulted, with the decision seemingly intended to ensure a significant turnout for what is likely to be a glorified youth match.
