From getting brickbats yesterday, it's bouquets today for not doing something awful. Don't think what LFC have done today is particularly praise worthy. It's the right thing to do. End of.

This isn't the first time #LFC have performed a volte-face 48 hours after facing backlash over a misguided business decision. Their plans to hike up some match tickets to £77 per game was met with stern opposition. Hopefully this time they will learn from those past mistakes

Common sense finally prevails as #LFC reverse decision to furlough non-playing staff using the Government's job retention scheme. Better later than never but they could have avoided two days' worth of negative PR by thinking first and acting later rather than doing the opposite

American shootout was easily one of the best street games growing up, second only to heads and volleys
