Social media boycott begins & build-up to United clash – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool head ito the weekend and a match at Old Trafford amid a backdrop of protests, boycotts, injury pessimism and more.


Football begin boycotting of social media

You may be aware by now: No tweets, no facebook posts or anything similar.

The Reds players announced they would not be posting anything across the weekend, just as most of the English teams, leagues, organisations and many media outlets will be following suit, protesting against the ongoing barrage of racism and abuse online.

A statement from LFC on their stance is visible here and TIA will also be taking part in the blackout across the weekend, so stay tuned to the app for all match updates.


Away day for fans!

After our game against Burnley was pushed back, the Clarets could have 10,000 fans in place – with up to 500 travelling Liverpool supporters too!

There haven’t been any away days for fans to enjoy this season, so this could be a most welcome first.

We’ll then also have 9,500 supporters of our own in place at Anfield for the final home game of the campaign, too.

Around the Prem

BRIGHTON & HOVE, ENGLAND - Saturday, June 20, 2020: Arsenal's Bukayo Saka during the FA Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion FC and Arsenal FC at the AMEX Stadium. (Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

  • Bukayo Saka says he didn’t hesitate in signing a new deal at Arsenal even though Dortmund and Liverpool wanted him. Have you never heard of taking a second and composing yourself, young man?! What a waste!
  • And a whole bunch of teams want Mario Lemina from Fulham, because there’s no greater recommendation for a player than signing him, loaning him out, bringing him back and then not playing him
