Liverpool FC - the caring club... caring about coin that is

The state of modern football eh? Avid Bitterwallett reader and even more avid Liverpool fan Jon L writes…

“I just emailed Liverpool Football Club questioning the ‘Vote For Your LFC Man Of The Match’ poll on their website for last nights shambles. I questioned why it wasn't possible to vote for Reading players on the poll and suggested for a poll for ‘Who Was The Worst Player’ when we lose.

The clubs response? An generic email offering me the opportunity to “show your loyal support for LFC by applying for an official LFC credit card at 15.9% APR.””

Gah!!

    It's the LFC Man of the Match, not the Man of the Match for a reason. Liverpool want to win everything. So they make sure the competition is Liverpool players only to ensure a Liverpool player will win. If everyone voted 0 for every player (or 1 if that is the lowest), then they would claim the award was shared between all the players, and say that they were all winners, rather than admit that they were all a bunch of complete losers last night. As for the credit card ad, that's just a robot reply. Sometimes it is better not to reply than to send stuff like that.

    I've had enough of the shambles, supported LFC since 1965, Ive asked to unsubscribe from the site and how to stop payment...I got the same reply as you. I am sick of lining Benitez's pockets so until he goes I want out. Bring back Phil Thompson,Steve Heighway and put King Kenny in charge until the end of the season :(

    Lets not forget Liverpool fans are not a booing crowd if we call for managers to be sacked then we are quite hypocritical lets not forget our song YNWA

    Got to agree with Nobby on this one, surely it's obvious you are voting for Liverpool's man of the match, not the overall man of the match?! And also, surely the "who was the worst player" result is the player who received the least votes in the above?? Simples, no?!?!

    Did the Reading website have a poll for the top Liverpool player? If not why not! :P

    There should at least be a "none of the above" option. They were pish last night. The big problem is that's nothing new.

    The problem is more to do with Football Clubs generally that treat customers with contempt. The only customer they care about is Sky

    [...] year when the club responded to a fan’s complaint about the dire state of affairs on the pitch by auto-replying with a generic email offering them a 15.9%APR Liverpool credit [...]

    Typical football clubs - Screwing as much money out of their fans as possible. Reminds me of the time Man United altered their grey kit midseason after they claimed that it brought them bad luck...
