Liverpool Fan Brilliantly Sums Up What's Wrong With 'Modern Footy'

YouTube fan channels are a recent phenomenon that provide an excellent platform for the match-going fans to give their views and opinions, and occasionally go viral for a deluded rant.

Sometimes, however, a clip does the rounds for all the right seasons and that is certainly the case here as a Liverpool fan, speaking to Red Men TV after Southampton won at Anfield last night, gave a fantastic account of why he, and Jurgen Klopp, is so upset with the lack of a proper atmosphere for home games.

It's not just Liverpool. At Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, The Etihad, and The Emirates you are likely to find people leaving before the game is over and sitting on their hands for the majority of the game, and this is because, according to this fan in particular, the soul has been sucked out of the stadiums.


With so many 'tourists' and corporate seats, the passion just doesn't seem to be there.

That was actually brilliantly put. Selfie sticks are unforgivable.

It's not the same as it was, but that has to be expected. The one saving grace is that whenever the likes of Liverpool or Man Utd play away you can hear their fans sing non-stop and the atmosphere is always impressive, but at the moment the big six teams are all struggling to generate that experience for home teams.


Klopp and Guardiola have both spoken out about how they expect more from the home fans, which is entirely understandable as they have both come from Germany where the match-day experience very rarely fails to be a massive party.

Are proper, local fans being priced out of attending home Premier League games? It certainly seems that way, but it is unlikely to change when it's so profitable for the club.
