Cocky Liverpool advertised FA Cup fourth round tickets before Reading defeat
Even the Reds’ marketing team are out-of-form
Liverpool sent emails to their supporters advertising tickets for a fourth round tie against Burnley before they had replayed their third round tie against Reading. The email was sent out at 5pm on Wednesday, just hours before the humiliating defeat against the Royals.
But the arrogant missive has now come back to haunt the club, with both Liverpool and Reading supporters furious about its content.
Reds fan Martin Jones, aged 51, said: “I didn’t read it until after the game. When I got on the computer and opened it up I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was bad enough to crash out of the cup but then for the club to try and sell me tickets for the next round was like a slap in the face.
“It’s not only embarrassing for the club, it’s disrespectful to Reading.”
And Reading supporter Jon Keen said: “It’s typical of the Big Four. The fact they viewed it as such a formality makes it doubly satisfying we knocked them out.”
