John Henry has his fair share of critics amongst Liverpool fans and now betting company Paddy Power have joined in.
The main issue most supporters have with our 72-year-old owner is the lack of spending on first-team players, especially in comparison with our title rivals.
With days remaining until the start of the January transfer window and a gap widening between ourselves and Manchester City, the gambling company thought it was a good time to release their video.
It starts with a ‘Liverpool fan’ attempting to pitch a PowerPoint presentation to the Boston Red Sox owner, via the Anfield ticket office phone line.
The video then progresses to a meeting with our sponsors Standard Chartered in the hope of a £100 million loan for players, before attending the club shop and asking how many pencil cases need to be bought so that Kylian Mbappe can be afforded.
It’s not exactly a side-splitter but does illustrate the views of many fans, with the current expansion of the Anfield Road End and the nearly £40 million spent on Ibou Konate this summer – it’s not like we’re being too badly neglected.
You can watch the video via Paddy Power’s Twitter page:
