Back in February Tom Hicks claimed that the Summer Transfer Window will be ‘massive’, we all laughed it off and believed that it will be one of his many broken promises. Now with word that Rafa is on the verge of leaving and that Yossi Benayoun, Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano and Stevie G might also follow him out of Anfield, Hicks’ prediction looks accurate.
What the Texan failed to mention was the direction the window will be opening, looks like it is in the wrong direction. Now I am thinking that this was all premeditated and he knew back in February that Rafa would be out at the end of the season. My feeling is that they will now appoint an interim manager who most probably will be Sammy Lee. It looks like they do not have anybody lined up and want to leave that decision to whoever buys the club. Not having a permanent manager will also save Hicks and Gillett some money and given that many of the backroom staff will also follow Rafa the club will be left in turmoil until a new manager is in place.
It really shows what a vicious person he can be, not only does he ruin our club but then he taunts us and kicks us while we are down.
