Look everything waits untill the court. .
at the minute hicks can't re-finance because he needs board approval.
the club have been effectively sold because the board has accepted an offer.
the court rules in favour of the board, all the above happen, contracts are signed and given to the premier league, RBS have an understanding that the debt will be paid in full by friday by NESV and everything is hunky dory for us. .
now the unlikely situation.
Hicks wins the court case.
if TH wins, he sacks broughton, ayres and purslow and brings in his own puppets.
he re-finances and continues to run the club, OR sells it himself at a higher price to maximise profit.
OR he dosnt re-finance and we enter administration, plus a nine point deduction(which i think is highly unlikely because he wouldn't be fighting the boards decision to sell if he didn't already have the money to re-finance or pay the debt). . . . .
all in all, and ive talked with my brother, who is a solicitor and he has told me that the courts decision will be based on whats better for the future of the club, he feels that it will be a no brainer for the court to decide to go with martin broughton and co. . .he also feels that broughton will sway the court in anyways as he is one of the most succesful buisnessmen in the country, that and the guy representing us is A1 in what he does.

Dear ED and All REDMEN,

This is ref: the take over saga.
Speaking to a friend who is a Spurs fan (so glotting as he says this) that all the talk of there being 3/ 2 on the board in favour of selling the club is niether here nor there come Tuesday.

As the company the own L.F.C. Kop Holding/ Kop Football LTD have a board of directors I.E. H&G and not Broughton/ Purslow/ Ayre, so if they do not want to sell, they don't have to.
Ok my fiend is no legal eagle but he knows more about business law/ etiquette than I.

I was just wondering if anyone could throw any more light on this, as if it is true bar H&G refinancing Kop Holding it's Admin and -6 points come Friday.

Cheers for the post.
Markolfc Y.N.W.A. {ed's note - so you think Martin Broughton and a team of lawyers with full access to all relevant documentation know less than a gloating Spurs fan?}

To the NUMPTY who said it would be good business to let Torres go, what palnet are you on! !. He is probably one of the best center forwards LFC have had (certainly in recent years), every forward goes through lean patches and what do some of our supporters do, jump on his back. Get real and give him the support he needs in this difficult period. Some so called supporters p*ss me off.

What do you think ED {ed's note - it would depend on if the money would be enough for us to buy two top class forwards or not.}

I'm not an expert but can a club that made record profits last yr really go into administration i really beliveve in MB & CP and don't think that they won't have all the bases covered (excuse the punn) ED do you think that RBS will want to put us into admin and if the 15th comes and the debt is not paid is the club in admin or is it up to the bank to make that call

scose born irish red {ed's note - RBS would much prefer not to have the bother of admin, they would prefer to get it sold and get their money back.}

Taken from sky news hd website

Lord Grabiner QC, one of Britain's most eminent legal brains, is being lined up to represent Liverpool Football Club in the court battle that could determine the club's future.

I have learned that Martin Broughton, Liverpool's chairman, is set to call on Lord Grabiner to help secure a so-called declaratory judgement from the High Court that last week's deal to sell the club was legitimate.

The case, which is likely to be heard on Tuesday or Wednesday, has acquired additional significance since New England Sports Ventures (NESV) indicated this weekend that it may pull out of the deal if Liverpool are docked nine Premier League points as a consequence of going into administration.

I have read all the transfer rumours for a good few months and not many people have mentioned Thomas Muller from Bayern Munich. A big reason why Germany done so well in the world cup. I would like to see him grace the hallowed turf of Anfield. Would definately be a great addition to our team.

"Why isn't Danny Pacheo given time look at wilshire(SP) at Arsenal Defenders at Manure Silva brothers LFC don't have the courage to give the youngsters a chance"

RH has stated that some of the first team squad need to prove themselves or they will be offloaded. With no solid offers in the summer (or desire to leave in the case of Babel) for the inherited strike force of Ngog, Kuyt, Babel and the unknown (at the time) Jovanavic it is hardly suprising that these would be given a final opportunity ahead of the Jan 11 window. The fact that Pacheco was not loaned out suggests that he would have featured in a few more games if the above had made an impact instead of mucking up against Northampton et al.

There is still a huge squad that needs to be trimmed - more out than in I would say - but if ten never will be good enough players can be offloaded for 2 stars and an opportunity to bed in some of the youngsters ready for next season then there can be a lot to be gained from a hugely disappointing mediocre league position this year.

In relation to the post regarding Red Sox using a points system to rate players. This was something tried by another baseball team which the red sox started using several years later. They stole the system from another team (i think oakland). They would rate the players that the other teams would ignore in the draft by using a different rating system. They were ignored for various reasons but when the system dug deeper into the stats they unearthed the gems, developed them for a few years and sold them on for massive profit. It was known as a nerds v jocks system, the nerds developed the system and would use the system to great effect. The red sox tried to poach the guys that developed the system but they were too loyal to the team.

Torres looking likely to leave and in my opinion it would be good business for us. I realise he is an athletico man but does anyone think there would be a chance of him going to Madrid with Mourihno there and them seemingly being the quickest route to success. I think I would take a swap of Higuain(30m) and Alonso(30m) for Torres(60m). It would be good business for damaged goods methinks.

A week ago, nobody, including any of the papers knew that liverpool were in negotiations with NESV. This is because proper business men don't do their deals through the tabloids. But, all of a sudden the papers have managed to get J.Henry to change his business ethics and to openly confess to them that if Liverpool incur a points penalty the deal is off. They make all sorts of crap up just to fill the back pages, and some people are stupid enough to believe it. But saying that, the majority of people who believe it tend to come from Manchester and London

Listening to all the bitter blues on this site makes me laugh. Yes LFC are £300m in debt but still we have attracted 2 buyers. Everton not in debt and have been looking for investment for how long? 3 years
THAT SAYS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR CLUB.

Blue noses should be hoping for a takeover as a ground share may be considered.

Nine points deduction bring it on at least we can bring in our annual six points against you lot.

Reina said it to a spanish newspaper the Marca.I don't want it to happen. I don't know why he said it.dont shoot the messenger. It will be in our papers soon.

{Editor's Note: All he did was parry a loaded question. He was asked if he would like to join Real Madrid and he said he had a year and a half on his contract but it might be considered if the option arose. Very different to saying he would like to leave.}

Errrm didn't Pepe sign a new 6 year contract recently ed?

Dear Ed,

I posted something this morning with my views on the takeover which I think others may have found interesting comment. True it was not a rumour but a view. It never made the boards. This is not the first time that I have had this happen.

I am beginning to think that this web site is a love in between regulars and the Eds. Please widen the opinion set.

IggyPop

PS. I have supported LFC for 50 years so am not a glory hunter.
PPS. How do you get to become and Ed anyway? What qualifications do you need and how do you go about it? I'd love to do it!

{Editor's Note: A post will have made it to one of the pages unless it was offensive in some way or was simply a duplicate post. Very few posts get rejected. I certainly did not delete anything from you. I am guess it is out there somewhere - if it was not a rumour you could reasonably expect to find it under "banter". If you can't find it then please feel free to resend it. The Eds is an exclusive invitation only club I am afraid.}

Been out today with a well known coach from Liverpool FC and he confirmed that Fernando Torres has expressed that his future is elsewhere and that other clubs have been approached with a price. He says that Torres wants to be fast-tracked to success and this means that his loyalties to LFC have deminished. He also said that he could see Alonso returning within two years.

Ed, do you think Emanuelson from Ajax is worth persuing.He as a great left foot.He would be free and young enough to have a resale value.All the criteria, John Henry, puts into his dealings with the Red Sox.I hope we go for players like this one, in stead of overaged, Poulsens and Konchesky.Urby, can play down leftside, a position we ae struggle with. I watch Ajax alot, my fascination with them since the days of Cruyff.He is letting his contact run down because of a dispute with the club.I think he would be a great signing better than we have.

{Editor's Note: It depends how Ajax do in the Champion's League. They may well be looking to sell hime in January to avoid losing him for nothing in the summer - or have him sign a new contract. I agree that he looks a good player.}

Obviously next week is a huge week for the club with the case being held at the High Court.

IF Broughton, Purslow & Ayres have done their homework properly then its an open an shut case for the court.

Now Hicks has demonstrated that he doesn't want to let go without a fight(I think someone compared it to the end scene in trading places!).

If he wishes to appeal against the decision of the court, he neednt necessarily have recourse to do it if it could be felt that his appeal is a frivilous one as it would have no justification in fact.

Unlike US law UK courts will not accept frivilous litigation if it holds up natural justice.

The facts in hand are.

(1) He and Gillette cannot get re-financing and need funds by 15th October in order to continue ownership. In the current climate the chances of re-financing are unlikely at the most.

(2) They had given several undertakings for which they have re-neged on, therefor not coming in with "clean hands", which is a basic principle in English Common law and Equity. This being born out by the undertakings that they made to shareholders when they purchased that they would not leverage debt against the club to purchase it, Purslow being a former minority shareholder apparently has this in his possession and is submitting it as part of the case. Secondly they gave undertakings to RBS as part of the debt restructure that they sell to a reasonable offer and would allow Broughton autonomy to (i) Sell the club for a reasonable price (ii) Allow all decisions relating to board membership to Broughton.

Hicks has acted in an underhand way throughout this process and he has acted in breach of UK company law.

I honestly cannot see a court handing any other decision that the board decision to accept the offer as reasonable and dismissing Hick's claim.

I believe that by the end of Tuesday Hick's will be going back to Texas with his tail between his legs.

NESV baseball team the boston redsox frequently use sabermetrics to rate players i.e for purchase, now it has been rumoured that when the takeover is complete that a similar system adapted for football players may well be used in respect of the liverpool first team squad and possibly reserves/ academy . if you think this type of mathematical approach to future players will work please click believable- - or if you feel we should stick with the scouts etc please click un-believable

Fowler is god {ed's note - Torres is suffering a lot of injuries, that is why everyone suddenly thinks he is worth selling. He does need board approval, hence why he is trying to reconfigure the board.}

Sorry to rain on your parade but Conor Wickham is a die-hard Liverpool fan and has already said Fernando Torres is his hero. So who would he choose of Tottenham and Liverpool? I wonder.
And besides that, bar a few exceptions (Forlan, Schweinsteiger, Kaka), we could bag more of those players listed than Tottenham, Arsenal or Chelsea could.
There's no need to "come back down to earth", once the takeover is completed we'll be able to add buying power to the attractiveness of tradition, history and honour involved with putting on a Liverpool shirt.

"I cannot believe that Standard Chartered our shirt sponsors would allow their name to be associated with an entity I'm the brink of administration. What kind of reputational risk does this give them? Why haven't they stepped in?
Thoughts anyone ?"

I am not sure what you would expect them to do. They are simply a sponsor and I very much doubt that the plight of Liverpool at the moment would cause them any reputational risk. They provide sponsorship for the purposes of advertising - and their is an old adage that "all publicity is good publicity".

Really laughed at this one my friend. Err. it's a rumours site! It's not called 'Liverpool Rumours, But Don't Take the P*ss Lads'

What appears to be clearly upsetting you might be genuine rumour to someone else or just a bit of fun for others.

You, and others who are frequently upset by others 'rumours', need to lighten up. .or start up your own 'Nothing But Authenticated Facts' site.

Or just hit the 'Unbelievable' button and enjoy your day.

Henry Winter has t* tted that Purslow says that there is no chance of the club going into Administration. Also that club's future absolutely secure if NESV take over.

What we've got going on at the moment is a bunch of haters having their pop, making rubbish in the media etc. Lazy scum supporting jornos etc. .

I'm not worried, everything is going to be alright but as with the big games this club has been involved with its never straight forward.

All valid points, but don't forget that those "in the know" also claimed Cole to Spurs was a done deal and there was no way he'd leave London. Players move for all manner of reasons and the success rate of supposedly informed journalists and those ITK this summer has been poor to say the least. Until there's a statement from the new owners (fingers crossed everything goes well next week) we won't know what price bracket we're looking at or even if funds will be available in January. They might choose to make a statement of intent and give the fans a welcome gift or they might prefer to wait and further analyse where our shortcomings are rather than throw money at the problem. I have no idea how accurate the quotes attributed to Jakob Friis-Hansen, but if true the amount of players indicates that we'll probably be looking for value for money rather than marquee names. The list of countries given also seems to rule out Arda.

I am not sure what you would expect them to do. They are simply a sposnsr and I very much doubt that the plight of Liverpool at the moment would cause them any reputational risk. They provide sponsorship for the purposes of advertising - and their is an old adage that "all publicity is good publicity".

Over the period of time liverpool fans inc the ed would knock other teams rumours regarding players, i have seen some heated posts at times! but come on suarez, kaka, tevez, alonso, forlan, scweinstieger (spelling) , m. sissoko, l. diarra, aguero and even matta and then theirs the brit players ie bale, cahill, a. johnson, parker, wickham to name a few and to be honest can't see any of those players joining your club, bale has said some naughty stuff regarding your club spurs have all but signed wickham they have loaned out townsend and livermoore which ipswich requested and according to those in the know he will put pen to paper early summer! bentley could and i hope he goes to liverpool as well could pava again heres hoping? swp is another player on lfc's radar and looks promising? ian wright mentioned it in the standard! rumour has it that roy could be in touch with wenger regarding rosicky and denilson? kieron richardson could well be another addition according to his family in london and talk of family ashley youngs out spoken sister has come out again and said no way will ash join liverpool! he wants a return to london and if he gets no offers then he will stay at villa.

Murphy has today come out & backed Hodgson & to be fair he has a point. There is only 5 points separating 4th from 18th. Murphy also said "see where we are ar Christmas", referring to Liverpool as (We), could there be any legs in the rumour that he could be on his way back to us in January. He's a good premier league player & would do a far better job than Poulsen or Lucas. I believe he's very underated & it was a shame Rafa let him go. I know he's a Liverpool fan, but seriously think we could get a few seasons out of him in our squad for a cheap figure.

Who would sacrifice not having CL football until 2012 in exchange for the club being financially stable, a new or upgraded stadium, and to be in the title mix in the 2012/ 2013 season?

I thought it was written somewhere that we would not be deducted 9 points if we went into admin as the board had proved to the league that we could pay players and all other monies due .

Broughton would not state that he had signed documentation for his control should he not be 100% sure, he is merely stating that a buyer would walk leaving LFC in a catastrophic state, so when it goes to court this will all be evidence against the current owners. There is no judge that will allow Hicks to block a sale of a club he can no longer finance and let the club fall apart when there is a perfectly good offer on the table to take it forward and the board having written power to sell it!
It's all paper talk and Broughton is very clever in what he says, it will all aid to the sale of Liverpool Football Club. Have faith fans as he said in his interview, The sale will happen! Hicks will not even appear in court and it will all be sorted out within four hours in favour of the takeover!

Premier League
Hicks and Gillett could cost themselves £110 million
Harry Harris


Tom Hicks and George Gillett stand to lose an extra £110 million if their court hearing is a success

Liverpool's ace card against Tom Hicks and George Gillett in the looming court case is that the £300 million takeover by New England Sports Ventures is actually in the best interests of the outgoing owners - because it wipes out a massive £110 million worth of personal guarantees to the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Hicks and Gillett stand to lose a total of £254 million if the move by the owners of the Boston Red Sox collapses and they cannot find a replacement new owner by Friday.

In another twist, leaked minutes from a Liverpool board meeting allegedly contain Hicks making personal and abusive comments about Liverpool fans, which will rake up the hatred felt by the supporters against the current owners. However, it is impossible to see how much more despised Hicks and Gillett can become.

More importantly, ESPNsoccernet can exclusively reveal the cornerstone of Liverpool's case is that the takeover is in everyone's best interests. The hearing is not likely until Tuesday at the earliest. An inside source said: "It's in Hicks and Gillett's best interests, the board will argue, because it caps their losses at £144 million. Part of the deal with NESV is that the Royal Bank of Scotland wipe out the £110 million of personal guarantees."

An out of court settlement with Hicks and Gillett cannot be ruled out as the board is so confident that they will win the court case. Martin Broughton cannot comment on the specifics of the case, but the Liverpool chairman has told ESPNsoccernet that he believes he can win the case and the takeover can go through.

Behind the scenes 'negotiations' are clearly going on between the warring factions aimed at avoiding a messy public court hearing that would tear the club apart. Equally, the court hearing, which comes just days before Friday's deadline with the Royal Bank of Scotland, is unlikely to be the end of the legal wranglings, as whoever losses the initial hearing is sure to seek an appeal.

On the issue of an appeal, Liverpool's lawyers will argue that if Hicks and Gillett lose and the takeover can go through, and they call for an appeal, it would seriously jeopordise the takeover, and potentially throw the club into administration, thereby putting the club's surviva at risk.

If the legal actions drag to a second hearing, it is inevitable that RBS will have to take some decision on Friday, most likely to suspend the outcome of whether to put the club into administration pending the final court room verdict.

The logical solution is for both sets of lawyers to find some sort of middle ground, even if it is a settlement on the steps of the High Court. There is no direct contact anymore between the factions, with Hicks and Gillett on one side and the three English members of the board led by Broughton on the other.

Broughton told ESPNsoccernet exclusively: "All of these issues I cannot possibly comment on, as this is going to court, one would assume. We have no date for the hearing yet, but we are told it is a 'short order' and so it would be any day hopefully early next week.

However, without going into any legal detail, Broughton said: "Yes, I am confident we shall win. However we all know when you have to sets of lawyers they are both telling you that they are 100% confident that they will win."

Broughton was brought in by hicks himself not RBS. RBS approved this is that correct ed? {ed's note - I am not sure now mate, I was always under the impression RBS wanted him and Hicks agreed, but his words suggest it was the other way round.}

Hey Ed Do you think that there's a large possibilty for Liverpool to go into Administration. . What's all this Media fuss about ?

red red sox {ed's note - I don't think it will happen, it really depends on the court case, but RBS would prefer not to put us in administration, they just want to keep taking fees and interest.}

Mourinio has always got his man. . .one player he has tried to sign 3 times. . he is now attempting to sign AGAIN, this time in a player swap rather than straight cash. . and it's turned heads. . expect press reports about KAKA or ALONSO over the papers in the next few days, as Mourinio tries one last time to get his man!
