One of our leading supporters groups, the Spirit of Shankly, have questioned how much longer FSG will remain in charge of the football club.
They brought up the point as part of a wider debate into the ongoing negotiations about the Anfield Road end expansion.
“You’re not going to build an extension to your house if you’re planning to move within five or six years. But only FSG can answer that question,” they said.
“What is FSG’s long-term future? They could come out and say what they’re doing. None of this (speculation) exists then.
“It seems to have been an avoidable situation for Liverpool. Ian Ayre knows those minutes are going to be published, John Henry knows what he says will be picked up by supporters and they will ask these questions.” (Echo)
It has been said that it will take 15 years to repay any investment at that end of the ground. By way of contrast, the Main Stand will have paid for instead in five years due to the corporate facilities.
Some fans have wondered whether FSG’s reluctance to invest is symptomatic of that timeframe; will they still be around to see the fruits of their labour?
What do you see for the future of FSG? Are they here for the long term – as they profess to be – or will they sell up as soon as they get a nice offer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below…
