Tickets again

Guardian Unlimited Football: "The stadium's chief executive Paul Sergeant welcomed that move but said the club only had themselves to blame. 'This is the most sensible conclusion to this unfortunate set of circumstances,' said Sergeant. 'There is no one more pleased than us that those fans who were due to miss out will now be coming to the Millennium Stadium after all. However, if Liverpool had followed stadium advice and dispatched tickets in a secure way, this situation would not have arisen."

The lfc forums are full of people proposing protests and booing down the national anthem or 'Abide with me'. Smalltime.

At the end of the day who's to blame...The wretches who robbed the tickets. The Millennium Stadium shouldn't be attacked for erring on the side of caution when it comes to fan safety. Notice Mr Parry seems very quick to say what's unacceptable, you'd almost wonder if he was trying to deflect criticism.

Anyway there'll be a 1,000 less rednoses in the stadium but by cancelling a ticket ballot all those who had their tickets stolen will get into the game. I suppose that's the fairest, feasible result.
