Rodgers getting desperate now.

Don't really see much bad about this, if you want to pray in the match it's your own 50 quid you're wasting.

Religion has no place in football, stupid for Liverpool getting involved. I know they have 10's of thousands of foreign season ticket holders but this is a step too far,

I think a lot of Liverpool supporters would like to visit those prayer rooms pre kick-off while Rodgers is still in charge!

It seems fair enough to put prayer rooms into football grounds if the demand is there.

You and your logic!!

I have my doubts that there is sufficient demand but if there is, who cares? Fans are customers and you need to keep them happy. If this is something that will attract more people, so be it.

On a side note, an old company of mine had an 'Inspiration Room', which was there for use as a prayer room and a quiet space for everyone, regardless of faith. It slowly became a store cupboard. I'm not sure if that was because people had no need for it or that there may be stigma attached to someone using it that put people off. Anyway, I digress.

Total opposite where I work. Our store cupboard is used as a place for Muslims to pray (and for people to get changed if they fancy going for a run or whatever).

Everton were founded as St Domingo's in 1878 so that people from the parish of St Domingo's Methodist Church Everton could play sport year round
Adam & Eve were created by God they reckon and we all come from them don't we?

Must be why the attendances are lower on a Sunday, all in church :ohy:

I remember last season there was a story about a group of muslims having to pray in a stairwell at Anfield as there was no designated area and they were subjected to verbal abuse.

If there is a big enough demand for it then of course these areas should be provided.

Why don't they fuck off to a Mosque if they want to pray? Why bring it into football? are we catering for all religions like Satanism for example?

it's just a PR trick to get Liverpool more foreign fans :hail:

I don't think they were abused at the time, but bellends on social media etc. did. I remember the post that kicked it all off anyway.

Why do you think it's only foreigners who would want to use a prayer room? Many Brits pray too.

You may as well ask why don't fans fuck off to a restaurant or pub if they want to eat and drink? Same sort of principle, isn't it?

They could just 'go' to a mosque, of course.
Everton, of course, already have a multi-faith prayer room, as do Palace, Arsenal, Spurs and Man City.
The smart Everton fan might have crowed over Liverpool being behind the times. But ... oh wait....

Your response doesn't even make sense! Keep up with what **you** said on a forum you **used** to use? Priceless.
You're stupider than even your odious comments would suggest.

We are a Christian nation my friend.

Or join a choir at church if they want to sing? they could kill 2 birds with one stone here .............good shout.

Try putting your response to those legitimate and sensible comments **outside** their quotes. It really, really isn't fucking difficult.

Your IQ appears to be eroding by the hour.
My knowledge is football not grammarrrrrrrrrrr
