"Either start building Stanley Park to a huge stadium or renovate Anfield. It will pay for itself in no time more allocation of Season tickets = more money = better players = les = trophies = legends = memories..."

"Surely it is time to change the criteria for the list. Why not prioritise season tickets for the real supporters - those who attend every game buying tickets through the members card, not just those that have been on a list for 15years and go to the odd game??!!"

"Anyone that's been to Anfield knows that it would be almost impossible to extend it, particularly on the Kop and Anfield Road ends - the only way to have a bigger stadium would be to build one."

"Great news!! I wrote off years ago but will have to dig up my response letter to see if i make the April 2004 cut. Touch and go but I reckon i'm in the 25,000. Thank you FSG. I can't wait to be part of the new anfield"

"do other clubs charge for the privelege of being on a waiting list and potentially never getting a ticket anyway.....no wonder some fans keep their tickets and pass them onto friends and family and use them as and when they want, maybe they should look at weeding the people who have 3 or 4 tickets but never go themselves..."

"The on-line waiting list should prove to be more transparent and therefore fair. The �£5 fee is a one-off and pays for the project and again it seems fair to me that those one the list who want to stay on the list pick up the cost of this. "

"I had a Kop season ticket for the 74/75 season, Sir Bob's first in charge, it cost about £15 - less than £1 per game, 21 home games back then. I don't remember a waiting list, I just applied, paid, and got one. Ah, the beauty of simplicity. I jibbed it the following year after getting stick off my mates - 'it's only old fellers who have a season ticket,' they mocked."

"Good to hear that the waiting list is being reviewed. I aggree with allreddave thouh and think that the criteria should also be reviewed in favour of those who regularly attend games but I have no problem with paying a one off £5 if it eliminates those who are not serious about wanting a ST "

"Before cleaning up the waiting list LFC should clean up the season ticket holders! Many are held by companies, hired out for the year or with DOB from 19th century. Sell them to real fans."

"To all of you moaning about the fiver I would say it's not unreasonable to show a (token) amount of seriousness. A mate of mine who has applied to join the MCC (whose waiting list is even longer than LFC's) was asked to pay 150 quid up-front and that's just to become an associate member. The only caveat is that the money is deducted from the 350 pounds joining fee if/when you become a member."

"What is the average age of season ticket holders? Apparently at Old Trafford it was someting over a hundred because people kept the ticket in the family in the deceased name. It would be good if issues like that could also be sorted out!!"

"good news, i reckon if 25000+ fans will pay £5 to be on the list they must genuinely want season tickets so then the owners know the new stadium can have 25000+ extra seats that will be paid for and filled, more money equals better players and more success! simple. onwards and upwards!"

"Why are people complaining about the £5 fee!How many of you waste £5 in fruit machines or on bets in the bookies!! Personally I'm made up this is being sorted out. This is obviously being sorted due to the new owners and boardroom management. Well done FSG, this just shows they want to have communication with the fans like they said in the beginning & sticking by their words on & off the pitch."

"I had a phone call off the club a month or so ago . My only gripe is that after 4 weeks and a couple of phone calls later Im still waiting to see where on the list I am as it still comes up with an error message and all the club will say is Ive not been added to the computer list yet and to try again in a couple of weeks "

"1) It would be great to know you cant put 400 characters on here before you start rabbiting 2) Feelings run deep, lots ot say on this as would appear others do - is LFC right in saying the onus is on the supporter to provide proof? If the date went back to fan card membership then that would be fairer given that lots appear to have been sat waiting like lemons for a letter not arriving......."

" If LFC where to use a photo ID season ticket, or insist on photo ID (driving licence etc..) to be shown at the gate along with their season ticket, it would probably half the waiting list and make it fair to those who dont know anyone who buys season tickets and lets other people use them for a proffit!!"

"my daughter and i were on the list for about 15 years and paid the fiver,but now are season ticket holders,only to see the worse season in the clubs history and since we've been attending,makes me wonder what all the fuss is about just at present anyway,its still far too dear though,wondering if they'll freeze the prices for next season like a few other clubs have done but won't hold my breadth "

I've wrote letters, telephoned the club, it's nearly 2 years since this statement, but the only reply I get is look on the website for future posts? Come on guys, time to make a start on this one before my child needs an adult ticket!"

"Hi all the building of a new stadium seems like a no brainer we need to increase capacity, or we are never going to be competing on a revenue or merchandise scale with clubs like united or chelsea. An increase in capacity by 30,000 will solve the season ticket problem as well, as I can't even get on the list."

If the board of management canot be bothered to update the site, what chance of any real action in regard of season ticket's or indeed transfer's in jan. poor display must do better."

"I am disabled, and nearly 60. It is very frustrating to read the same message (over a year now) telling me the waiting list is closed. I know there are only 100 wheelchair spaces and 51 of these are taken already. PLEASE just let me know if there is ANY chance whatsoever that I am going to achieve this. If it is likely to take 30 years, then maybe I should give up now!"
