The protest by football supporters throughout the Premier League is beginning to spread. After Manchester City and Liverpool fans protested at their separate away matches versus Arsenal in recent weeks, today City and Liverpool supporters continued their protest by joining together to hoist an “£nough is £nough’ banner.
The solidarity among the supporters is so strong that the banner was jointly held by Liverpool supporters, in their away section, and the Manchester City fans next to them. Impressively, the authorities (pictured above) didn’t try to remove the banner.
Several supporters groups as well as The Football Supporters’ Federation want their own type of financial fair play by reducing the obscene prices for away tickets that can be found in most Premier League stadiums.
