G&H will leave? Well not yet, we’ll have to wait till next week. Where another battle begins in court, and here it will be decided, if Hicks wins, then the chances are he’ll stay on for some time. If he loses, then the chances are (and we’re talking 99 per cent here, woo hoo!), the REDs will be sold to the owners of the Boston Red Sox.
In between now and the court’s date, Mr Hicks must find at least 200 million to settle the RBS repayment loan by Oct 15. Hahaha and it looks like nobody is going to lend him that much of money. Chances are, the owners of the Boston Red Sox will be the new owners of Liverpool. And so, what does this means to us?
Well, to me John W Henry looks decent, from his looks i mean(I’m looking at his picture so to speak). He does not look anywhere conniving and scheming, like the two Hicks and Gillette clowns. From where i read, John here listens to the fans, well i hope he will listen to us too. (I’m digressing here)In 2002, the Red Sox were sold by Yawkey trustee and president Harrington to New England Sports Ventures, a consortium headed by principal owner John Henry. In 2004, the Red Sox won their 1st World series(1st time since 1918) and repeat it again in 2007. Well this sounds good to us, and he would want success fast. But of course, football and baseball are two different ball games, so this will be something new to him.
Back to my question: “What does this mean to me?”
It does not mean much to me now really, because in reality even if the sale goes through next week, Roy would not have money to spend until at least January. So we will have to struggle on, and we will live and die a RED by that. It is hard to imagine that after so much turmoil any new owners would want to create more by sacking the manager immediately, so Roy will probably be given more time. But in that time he will have to demonstrate that he is offering something. He could be given until X’mas perhaps(probably the best time to see what we are fighting for), to see where the club finds itself. If they are still in the bottom three, then he’ll be tying his own noose, because a relegation scrap can never be accepted at Anfield.
Which brings me to another question: What will this mean to the players?
It means, they have to take the blame when they are under performing
It means, they are responsible to play with PRIDE and PASSION for the FANs, for the MANAGER and for the CLUB
It means, they have to earn the right to play for that shirt
It means no more excuses, the directors, the owners, the managers aren’t the ones playing, its the 11 on the pitch that is doing their job…..
What can we do together?
