    Default Confirmed: TFC v Liverpool FC July 21, Rogers Centre

    Steven Goff of Washington Post reporting that there is a rumor of Liverpool FC friendly July 21 vs MLS club. TFC and Seattle are open but Seattle plays vs Chelsea 3 days earlier, and LFC are in Boston on 7/25 vs Roma and Balto 7/28 vs Spurs. So, that kinda looks like its going to be TFC.

    Hey, I'm just the messenger.

    I might have gone if it came to pass but not at Rogers Centre...no excuse not to do BMO in July on a proper pitch.

    I can handle some shit performances on the pitch but mid season friends just drive me up the wall. Especially when this club has much more important things to worry about. Fuck off.

    I think we all know that the reason it is at Rogers Centre is revenue. They can make more money and still have tickets priced at a cheaper average than what we had with Real Madrid. I know from town halls the fans expressed their displeasure with mid-season friendlies but I think that is a sentiment coming more from SG's rather than the majority of season ticket holders. If they got anything from the town halls, it would have been the complaint that RM was priced so highly. So what they are probably thinking of doing is just addressing that "complaint" while still filling their pockets with more revenue.

    Then again, with grass already installed at BMO couldn't they charge more reasonable prices and still make the same from what they did with Real? I mean the cost of installing the grass was really high if I remember correctly and the north stand is much bigger than the temporary bleachers they put up in 2009.

    Either way, the atmosphere will never be as good in the Rogers Centre (ever) unless they play another meaningful match in there.

    Shame that it could be at Rogers ... that will discourage me from going unless there was a real good deal for STH. If it was a top team, maybe ... but we didn't go through this the previous times we played mid-table EPL teams.

    I understand that Liverpool is having a tough go of it at the moment, but there are only a HANDFUL of teams bigger than Liverpool. They are still a top team.

    No, i'm not a Liverpool supporter

    No way will I be attending a mid-season friendly. If they think they can replicate the CCL game, they are in for a big surprise.

    Why would I want to see a championship level club since the new year play TFC in the middle of the season. Especially when Euro would have just ended a few weeks before????

    I shudder to think of what the fare will be for this game. Pure money maker, that is all.

    Of course they don't give a damn.

    Hence the atmosphere will be shit.

    There's a handful of teams bigger than Liverpool in England alone!

    I remember when Liverpool were huge! Back when you only got 2 points for a win. But they've been having a tough go for over 20 years now. Sure, still a bit bigger than Bolton, or even Aston Villa. But I wouldn't think worthy of moving to Rogers. We didn't move to Rogers for Real Madrid.

    Attendance will depend on ticket cost. Reasonably priced, attendance will be high. Charge too much, attendance will be lower. United - Celtic game was over priced, and only 27k came out.

    When Liverpool played Porto in 2004 (the 2004 Champions League Winners against the team who would be the 2005 Champions League Winners) there were 40,078 people there. I payed $100 for a supporters ticket.

    I will be buying three tickets that day. One for my father, one for me and one for my son. It will most likely be the only time when the three of us will be able to see Liverpool play. We will each be cheering for our hometown teams.

    This is the only possible match where I'd be louder for the visitors than TFC, and this is the only game when my son will be louder for Liverpools opponents.

    I sincerely wonder how many football fans are out there. Those that would attend a game simply on recent league play alone. While I don't discount the fact that LFC are struggling in comparison to it's long history of success it's these kind of matches that people easily put aside their need to see quality to witness a reknown team. Be it for a star player not from the city the team represents or just for the fame of the club, most fans there will not be there on the recent results of the club.

    ps- MLSE, you couldn't find a popular foreign minnow for LFC to beat up on?

    The future of local football. Love to hear this, Huyton!

    Useless friendly with a cash grab note written all over it,thanks but not this time.

    the rest of you who will go,enjoy the game and hope for both teams that no one will get injured on that crap surface at RC.
    Great love does not exist without joy and without great suffering ,that's why One club is worth only as much as its fans !
