Looks like Blackstone has refused to refinance him, the full story is here
Tom Hicks is currently trying to refinance the RBS loan via another financial institution The Blackstone Group. What Tom Hicks will be doing is essentially getting George Gillett out of the picture and taking full control of the club. With him being the solo owner he can then appoint his own board and there is already talk that his son Tom Jr. (who was fired from the club last year) might return to the board.
Hicks will not invest a single penny in Liverpool but continue to destroy us like he has done with the sports teams he has owned. If Hicks is successful in signing a new refinance package then he will be pretty much signing Liverpool F.C.’s death warrant, he must be stopped.
A group of Reds have come up with the letter below, please send it to the parties addressed, we need to show that we are serious.
Hicks must be stopped.
If your company agrees a £280million refinancing deal with Tom Hicks to retain his share in Liverpool Football Club, then the only return that you will see on your investment is bad publicity and a severe backlash from Liverpool supporters worldwide.
As you are aware, Hicks is trying to refinance his debt to the Royal Bank of Scotland before October 6th so that he can continue his disastrous ownership of Liverpool Football Club.
There is no point in us listing the countless and well-documented offenses of the grossly destructive reign of Tom Hicks and George Gillett. The media is full of articles about them. And that is the point. No longer do we rely on the occasional heroic journalist to expose corruption within institutions we hold dear. This is a new age, an era of organized resistance at the click of a mouse.
You are facing an energized, well-informed mass of Liverpool fans from around the world. We are tapped into a constant stream of information on the ownership situation. Every day, dozens of web forums buzz with the latest news. Protest marches, newspaper ads, boycotts and billboards are organized. Every move Hicks makes is scrutinized. And every associate of his is warned.
Refinancing is our nightmare scenario. Anybody who helps Tom Hicks refinance will become our primary target.
We have a decent track record of taking on and beating those who attempt to blacken the name of Liverpool Football Club. As an example, the Boycott of the Sun Newspaper following their disgraceful coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster in 1989 is said to have cost News International an estimated £10 million a year.
If the Blackstone Group / GSO Capital Partners join forces with Tom Hicks in raping and pillaging Liverpool Football Club, then you will be making a very powerful enemy.
You have been warned.
