So after three hearings in court and a week that saw our emotions ride a roller-coaster, New England Sports Ventures (N.E.S.V.) just became the new owners of Liverpool F.C. today.
The morning started with Hicks dropping the injunction however we were all afraid because the news media was reporting that he did that because Mill Financial was buying his shares. It was later revealed that Mill Financial tried to get the “Fit & Proper” test passed however the E.P.L. would not deal with them unless the L.F.C. board approved.
Unfortunately Tom Hicks and George Gillett are now suing for $1.6 billion dollars, a last ditch effort of desperation. I don’t think they will win however as both High Court verdicts were crystal clear and apparently the judge in Dallas wasn’t too pleased with H&G either.
As Liverpool fans we are all hopeful that N.E.S.V. will come through with their promises to bring back the winning days at Anfield, we desperately need it.
