FOAR Endgame

It's D Day. Now we're only $2 shy from meeting our monthly operating expenses. I have to thank Alex Miller for an extremely generous donation otherwise we'll still not be this close to meeting the target. So, does anyone else care enough to help us go over the line? You know what to do... P.S. Once again, my sincere thanks to everyone of our Patrons who want to preserve what we've built here for ...

FOARclosure?

Dear all, after numerous appeals since we came to life three years ago, our Patreon list now has  only five patrons collecting $3 per month. https://www.patreon.com/FOAR This is unsustainable. Our goal is just $50 per month to pay for essential costs. So, I'm forced into a deadline decision. If we don't reach our monthly funding goal by 30 April 2019... I WILL CLOSE FOAR   All fingers are not of equal length, so some people are able to ...

Major Summer Signings: A Natural Progression

Since Jürgen Klopp became manager we’ve reached three finals and qualified for the Champions League for the previous two seasons after a three year absence. Not bad going by anybody’s standards. The arrivals of players to Anfield whom three seasons ago were more likely to have ended up with Chelsea, or the two Manchester teams is down to the manager. The feel good factor, the growth of Liverpool fans worldwide ...

Stanley Park Story & the Merseyside Derby.

My memories of Liverpool playing Everton are happy ones. Particularly the two FA cup final victories of 1986 and 1989. The iconic image of Rush putting the ball past big Nev Southall is engraved in my brain. Ironically Neville Southall was a footballing hero of mine growing up. He simply was the greatest of his generation back then. So it was a dream come true to meet him in Dublin ...

Liverpool and the conundrum of ticketing

How do you solve a problem like the Liverpool ticketing one? That is a very big debate that circles around every single time there is a bulk sale or a sale for a big cup game, the same questions get asked, the same debates ignite. The popularity of Liverpool FC is at an all time high where demand completely outnumbers supply. It is a stark contrast to 8 years ago ...

Ads on Disqus

Dear all, as you already know, I've always been crystal clear and upfront  that I don't want FOAR to be ad-supported. You've heard me say several times that I've deactivated Disqus REVEAL (their advertising system) and switched of all Cookie tracking of visitors to the site. Thus far, I've been paying for everything out-of-pocket. Unfortunately, as much as I want that to continue, I received this email from Disqus yesterday. See ...

Disqus Reveal: I turned off all ads and tracking data

Apologies if you are seeing ads and weird site behaviour e.g. huge black patches. Two days ago, Disqus messaged me: "Congrats! Your site is eligible for Disqus Reveal." Disqus Reveal is their native ad platform. I guess they liked the growing visitor-ship numbers (88,500) visitors in  just 1 month. They gave me an option to turn it On which I certainly didn't. (had much earlier turned off everything). Today, Disqus, without my ...
