Spirit of Shankly has notified it’s members that they will not be any demonstrations against Hicks & Gillett tonight. The American duo are expected to attend the Europa League semi-final at Anfield this evening.
Here is the Spirit of Shankly statement in full.
Spirit of Shankly has received information that Tom Hicks and George Gillett are due to be in attendance at tonight’s Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid, despite the recent news of them finally stepping down as chairmen of our football club and officially putting the club up for sale. Their visit is only likely to further rub salt into our wounds, and will no doubt be paid for at great expense by us.
Due to the nature of tonight’s game there will be no planned demonstration before or after the match.
This is not to say, however, that our feelings and stance towards them has changed or softened. Tom and George are still not, and never will be, welcome at Anfield.
We have reason to believe that they will also be in attendance at Sunday’s game against Chelsea. We would like to make it clear to Hicks and Gillett that if they plan to attend on Sunday, we will be there to meet them and will stop them gaining entry. We will inform fans further of any planned demonstrations for Sunday.
The club may be for sale, but it still is not sold. The fight is not over.
Tom and George – Sell the club. You’re still Not Welcome Here
