So it turns out at the end of the season lfc is going french with a bid for some guy called André-Pierre Gignac i think he is a striker.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
He is a striker mate and not bad at all. I think he plays for Tolouse or Bordeaux. He's not your average french striker i.e pace and flare he's a good target man just what we need imo.

Then again he was in the French world cup squad which isn't somthing to shout about.

I didn't know that he signed for Marseille mate thanks. I didn't have time to google it i was watching MAN'URE draw (decline) on MOTD.

Adam Doyle a target man up front is set to sign for Liverpool, from Waterford club Crusaders, it's amazing how this talented player has never been signed up by anyone or scouted as he fast approaching 20. Be excited Liverpool fans.

Heard a rumour that Johnson has been a naughty boy in his private life and is to be dropped for the Merseyside derby tomorrow. Also he will be sold in January. Now this is by no means 100% fact and we will have to see tomorrows papers and see what they say. For me this wouldn't be the end of the world, Kelly is a better defender and will have passion if he plays tomorrow as he was born a red.

Now that the takeover mess is sorted out, we can get back to playing football. I would love Roy to play an attacking team.


Renia
Kelly Carragher Skrtel Konchesky
Meireles Lucas
Cole Gerrard Jovanovic
Torres

Take out Konchesky, Aurelio is on his way back! Believable for Aurelio, unb. for konchesky

I 100% agree with you mate. Only reason I would play Konchesky over Aurelio is because I feel as if we need to
slowly bring Aurelio back. If we rush him and start him in a competitive derby I see him getting injured again. I would give him 30 minutes.

To the person who wrote carragher should be sent out of the team, out of the club. ! complete and utter nonsense. ! disgraceful really.
i know he hasnt been at the top of his game lately but so hasnt the rest of the team. perhaps we should throw everyone out. maybe we should change the name of the team aswell. !
personally i believe carragher hasnt been at the top because him and skrtel can't play well together. (someone please confirm by thoughts)
carragher and agger is the partnership in defence that's strong. agger moves forward but is always back to defend strongly. skrtel sometimes seemingly goes off and has no idea where he should be positioned to defend best.
carragher is and always has been the rock of defence for liverpool because you will always find him in our own half fighting with all his heart, putting his body in the way of the goal, for liverpool, infact, these are the sorts of players we need at our club.

If Hodgson doesn't pull it around, maybe make either Carragher or Gerrard player manager in my opinion.
Young, fresh, hungry, desire . I think either would be a suprise success., I mean look at a young dalglish as player manager! He had a team that played attractive football. Worth a though

young, fresh, hungry and desire! yet another four players liverpool are dreaming of! mind you you wouldn't find young, fresh, hungry or desire in any liverpool shirt lmfao.

- ha ha bravo reply ha ha.
Gerrard & Carragher as managment team would be a decent shout. If they where Spanish or Italian then they would probably get the opportunity.
I think they are about 2/ 3 years away with the right guidance. If Dalglish does take over then Gerrard & Carragher would have a great teacher.
I ain't sure though if Carra or Stevie would want the stress of the job.

In my opinion Carragher should be let go, out of the team, out of the club.Then brought back to the coaching staff, when he as finished is career or proven coach.Shouting and great leaders don't always make great managers, Souness a prime example. The main problem with this team the last 18 months as been our defence is not as good as it was.According to a lot on this site obviously remember the Carragher of two yrs ago, not the one who puts on the red shirt these days, they still have him in there dream team.Imo we will never be a top 4 team again if we persist with him.People who remember Kenny as player manager Know he had sir bob paisley as a director of football stroke consultant. And experienced coaches Moran, Evans alongside him, with Phil Thompson with reserves.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If we let him go Carragher would be snapped up by one of our PL rivals e.g Redknapp. He nurses Ledley King through each season. We need to that with Jamie. He can't rescue us three times a week with swashbuckling performances all the time. Perhaps 1 game in 3. Agger, Skirtl and Kelly need to step up now.

Ed is it true that taiwo and mexes are both out of contract in the summer?. .if so these would be my signings!
. . . reina. . . . .
johnson. . .mexes. . agger. . .taiwo
sanchez/ affelly. .gerrard. meireles. .cole
. . . lisandro/ suarez. . .torres
also ed why is lisandro being sold for only 15 million when lyon bought him for over 20 million?
I would play pacheco, wilson, kelly, shelvey, ngog against the weaker teams.

{Editor's Note: Both are out of contract at the end of the season but I think there is very little chance either will go to Liverpool. Taiwo will almost certainly renew his contract and there is a lot of interest in Italy for Mexes - with Napoli in pole position.}

I can't believe people are already slating the new owners. . it been little over 24 hours ffs! We preyed for G&H to get screwed and we got it! NESV have a track record in running sports teams well! A man citeh type owner is no good to us with the new spending rules coming in for next season. . I fully expect them and Abramovic to get pretty bored soon, and what will that do to the clubs?

Also, i know its early days in the new regime (ooooh, that sounds so good ha , f*ck hicks and f*ck gillete)
but january should be a time where we only get 2 players, maximum 3 if needed depending on the circumstances. mainly a striker and a winger who can play both sides.
i like the look of lisandro lopez after hearing all the rumours. (not saying we should go for him but he could be on the potential list along with jovetic, gomez, AGUERO (god i wish).
and i believe we should go all out for alexis sanchez or else he'l be snapped up by utd. (N)
ohhhh, make it 3. HONDA! ! !
What do you think ed? :)

RE: Carlos Slim Helu, the worlds richest man he owns 20% of Ny York Times who have a 20% stake in Nesv


You will know that New york Times company is carrying £1billion in debt and is trying like mad to sell the 17percent stake in NESV so they can use it as a down payment.

You don't undetstand this was a pooled sum of money. They don't go investors with hat in hand and ask for millions more. They buy something then use that to buy something else and so on. They own red-sox, Nas-car and now lfc.

I think the intial fund was spend on red-sox. The nas-car deal for 30m created 300m in profits from advertising and now that money has been spent on lfc.

We the future internet tv deal likley to make epl clubs alot of money, henry is sitting on gold because he owns cable channels that disbute in 50 states. He is buying content. lfc is a asset for him, he won't spend stupid money. he'll do it on the cheap.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

The Boston Red Sox are the 2nd highest speanding team in the MLB and henry said he would do what ever it took to make liverpool a winning side. Also the he will be able to actually put the money liverpool were making back into the club as oppose to what hicks and gillette did and payed debts with it

(((You know nothing mate. They have a wealth of 8-10 billion. They will support us in the transfer market. If they want a player they will get him, they wanted a player for red sox and they got him for a fee of $50million.
They all work in the financial sector and have huge experience. But not just experience they've had huge success as well.

The whole preface by Hicks Sky propaganda Sports News that he was trying to find a Man City style buyer is total rubbish. No one would deal with him. It was public knowledge we would go into administration on October 15th if the debt wasn't paid off meaning no one would pay £600m. All bidding parties were only ever going to offer around £300m or below. We should thank NESV and Lim for bidding to take the club from H&G for what they offered.

I think we all agree that we need a winger, a striker, a centre back, a right back and possibly a more attacking centre mid. I would really like to see the following come in January;

Llorente-£15m
Mata- £12m+ Babel
Van der Wiel-£12m
Gary Cahill-£15m
Sulley Muntari- Loan(he is unhappy he is not really in Rafa's plans)

Push Glen Johnson to RM.

Then in the summer

Mexes- Free
Taiwo- Free
Javi Martinez-£15m(the next Xabi Alonso)

These will be the best Bosmans next summer, and would both be guarunteed to get game time.

Well Henry won't say anything special. Im guessing he will run liverpool like aston villa.

They carry on building and buying good players ect. no one really paid their amaerican owners any attention. Then all of a sudden they became a real top4 threat. That will happen with us. and Martin Oneil has to step in and lead us. We won't see great players at the club. we will finish 7 or 8th this season. Torres will go in the summer and Gerrard too.

Then we will buy a few new players when we get a new manager. But at the moment this season is over for us, unless we win FA cup. The league will be a disapointment.

The stadium will increase to 60,000 seats more crop-boxes, then bonds will be issued against the club {ed's note - O'Neill? The guy who spent so much time holding Villa back and stopping them from winning anything?}

Well said. We don't really need a meglomaniac sugar daddy sheikh because if we are able to put our commercial profits back into the club and the team, the club will run itself
We will have a whole load of money available previously paying off interest on the debts of H&G, along with money from NESV.

I realise we all need to calm down about what NESv will do. But I believe they may wish to make a statement of intent in the January transfer window. Although a very decent gentleman I do wonder whether Hodgson will be the manager. Not necessarily because of the situation at Liverpool but i would not be surprised if Capello left the England job, the FA approaching Liverpool for Hodgson and gaining some compensation. Could be a honourable way out and NESV could then appoint their man (but hopefully not O'Neil)?

In reply to the below, Lim was just a maverick and reports suggest that he was just helping H+G delay the deal! it's not about who have the deapest pockets (although NESV do have deep pockets its not just Jonh W Henry you know!) its about who will run the club correctly! I don't know anymore than anyone else if this will prove to be a good deal or not only time will tell but if you take the red sox as a model then things look bright. Also to the people trying to get hodgson out why don't we just see what he can do know things are settled and if he proves that he's not the right man then would be the time to look at other options we need to give the guy a chance he was given the job whether you like it or not so get behind him if your really fans!

16 Oct 2010 06:03:19

"Not to sure on these new owners myself. Lim off to clear all debt and big transfer funds. His seemed a better deal."

I almost always avoid attacking the posters I disagree with but focus on the issues instead, but in this case I will make an exception: either you are poorly informed or a fool. Lim has Man U supporting stores, has nothing like the collective shareholder wealth that owns NESV, and had every opportunity to try and outbid NESV in the bid process. . which he didn't. Then after the deal is done he suddenly goes public with a "better offer?" He is just as much of a charlatan as Huang and isn't the kind of owner the greatest football club on earth deserves. NESV have a great background by comparison and you like all other Liverpool supporters should thank your lucky stars (and stripes) that NESV are our new owners. And PS, I'm not American!

First of all this has nothing to do with nationality. By your writing I assume you was a Hicks and Gillett fan when they first arrived.
Did lim offer a better deal than NESV ?
Did Lim offer to clear all debt and give a big transfer fund?
What has NESV offered?
Who can't say NESV won't riddle the club in loans down the line?
Lim's got Man utd bars around Asia . And your point being? The fact the guy is a business man and offered his
OWN money into the deal should tell you he wants success.
But then hey your the expert. You should be a boss member or summit.
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
BUT NESV HAVE NOT MADE PUBLIC THEIR PLANS FOR LIVERPOOL. ONLY BROUGHTON, PURSLOW AND AYRE REALLY KNOW WHAT MADE THE NESV DEAL BETTER THAN LIMS.

Hey you lot. I just want an opinion from everyone.
What type of player do you think would make a better strike partner for Torres?
-A target man like Llorrente/ Dzeko/ Cavani
-A smaller more skilled player like Aguero/ Suarez/ Hulk
-Or maybe a player similar to Torres with power and pace and some of the skill like Lisandro Lopez
Thanks for your input.

KEISUKE HONDA will definatelty be bought by liverpool in january. This is the type of player NESV would love to have, shirt sales and advertisements will rocket in JAPAN and he's just the player we need - capable of playing defensive midfielder, attacking midfielder, second striker

actually no he wont! he is all but off to arsenal, wenger loves a player who likes the ball and can play in many positions, he is an arsenal type player and that's where he will end up going

Hi I live in stevenage and im good mates with Kyle young im 15 and i know kyle pretty well and ive met ashley at an athletics meet when he came to watch his younger brother. I visited kyle at arsenal training and we spoke about villa being knocked out of the europa league and he says he's looking to get into the England team and play at a winning side. Meaning he may want to leave villa in January if the offer is right. I don't support liverpool but a player like that would do wonders for your side.
STEVENAGE FC! we are going up

very sorry but it won't be liverpool, did you read "to play in a winning side"! lol
jokes aside it really won't be liverpool sorry!

(( he must of been scouting, i read he was also there with moyes.

After the events of the last few days, let me dream. .but a controlled dream based on what John W Henry has done with other "sports ventures." I reckon he'll buys talented youth (so the club doesn't become laden with debt) and combine this with 1 marquee signing. 6 players that could transform us from next season onwards:

Reina
Van Der Wiel - Kelly - Hangeland - Contreao
Hazard - Gerrard - Meireles
Honda
Torres - Ageuro

Lets hope roy identifies quality players and not throw money away on ordinary players we need a striker 2 wigers and a holding midfielder and get rid of dead wood
ins
benega or defour
forlan or aguerro
turan or nevas
mata

outs
lucas
babel
maxi
and some reserve players not cutting it at liverpool

dont waste money roy then in the summer time to strengthen the defence

I don't think it is a case of how much Roy is given. I would hope that if, and only if, one or two players were identified who could add real quality to the squad, Henry will make the money available to sign them. He won't pay over the odds though. That is one huge benefit of not having a sugardaddy. If other clubs thought LFC had a huge transfer budget, transfer fees would rocket. It's probably best people don't know a lot about what NESV is making available.

16 Oct 2010 12:45:40
We need a left/ right wide winger with real pace and skill unlike Maxi - so how about Turan, Mata or Young?
Another quality striker would be good too; Suarez/ Aguero/ Llorente/ Dzeko? ?

16 Oct 2010 12:25:45
Depending on how much Roy is given I would rather him buy one game winning player (an Aguero for example) rather than stretch the money between 3 or 4 signings. When you have an 'Aguero' on the pitch you can to a degree carry the likes of pacheco or Spearing. And these type of players turn losses into draws and draws into wins when you don't necessarily deserve it.

Wish list:
Alonso
Aguero
Mata
Young

Sammy lee must be shown the door, he his useless. things started to decline when paco left due to differences with rafa. sami hypia to come back asap as a coach. alan hansen to be brought in along side king kenny to identify possible transfers, gud a coach roy may be he is not great in the transfer market time to re-write a new chapter in the clubs history. and ex players who still hold the club close to there heart need to be brought in. a top for 4 finish is still definatley a realistic target this season, theres 31 games left.

The season after Paco left we had our best campaign in the Premier League

Totally agree with what Red Lenin stated earlier.
Have not yet seen the Hicks interview, as I might cause some unwarranted damage to my TV.But Hicks is right, it has been an "epic swindle"! BUT by him and the other muppet. Gilett!
They buy a club(sorry borrow money) when they said they wouldn't be placing debt on the club.LIE
Promise to build a new stadium(altho granted world was hit by a recession) but anyway LIE. Take out millions from club funds for "personal expenses" SWINDLE. Yes Rafa made uber mistakes with his transfers and buying hopeless players which all great managers do. . . (SAF-Anderson for example). But as Red Lenin stated we have only had a net £27 m transfer budget over 4 years with the last countless number of windows being in the black. Again these two muppets Raped and piledged our fantastic club, I would only like to add, give NESV a chance, a massive well done to Martin Broughton, Christian Purslow, Ian Ayre and the rest of the team, welcome John Henry and Co. . . .Please listen to the fans. . . . . . . and you will be taken in by the Anfield faithful.Fellow Redmen, upwards and onwards, get behind the team and RH AND WALK ON.Thanks for Reading

Don't have any contacts but there a few players I think could improve our squad greatly and would be in our price range come January:

Matt Jarvis
Ever Banega
Cahill
Shawcross
Bentley
Suarez
Gervinho
Keisuke Honda
And bring back Aquilani

Although nobody other than a select will know how much Hodgson will have, Ed you seem to have your finger on the pulse and the scout will no doubt have still been watching players, so Any ideas? {ed's note - why would you want Aqualani back? Don't we have enough players to fill the treatment tables and never play a match? I only know of some of the ones being watched - Afellay is the one that stands out that you haven't mentioned.}

RE: all our best players have come through the ranks, owen, fowler, gerrard, mcmanaman, carragher, redknapp??

Please, (while I do agree this may be the time to have a young man at the helm) lets give Roy some time. We need to get behind him & the lads & then take a step back at Xmas at the very earliest. I did like Rafa, but he had time to shape things as he wanted (remember 04/ 05 league season was pretty bad!).

And as for terming Jamie (perhaps you should get a bigger black suit & tie) Redknapp as one of our best players? He was injured for a bout 4 of the seasons he was with us, and any player who slates the management & club as much as he does on Scum sports should be ignored quite frankly. Even if he is at the mancs, Owen was class for us- shows I'm not completely biased!

Have heard that Mr.Henry has admired Klinsmann for a while, would be ironic considering Hicks interviewed him 3 years ago!

Great new owners,
Now its time for the players to man up and start doing what they get payed for and stop hiding.
As i see it Roy said look at the tables afte 10 games, in my eyes that gives him 3 games.
New owners have said its going to take time and its a time to rebuild,
i totally agree and don't belive you can start this with a bloke whos 63 years old.
we will still not be able to compete with chelsea or man city money wise so were not going to be able to buy success, we need to, and i hate to say it, do what man utd did over 20 years ago and get a young hungry manager in to build a team using every available resource mainly youth, look at the scum plyers that came through, becks, scholes, nevills, giggs, butt.
all our best players have come through the ranks, owen, fowler, gerrard, mcmanaman, carragher, redknapp
this is the way forward, i don't want us to buy success for a couple of seasons id rather wait a few years for the right manager to build an army and turn anfield back into a fortress and dominate for the next 20 years,
I would love to see Steve Nicol in charge, hes young hungry, a scot, red through and through and hes done an amazing job in america.

Typical SSN. Just seen the hicks interview. No hard questions then try and prove what he said with the transfer and wages budget. Then after all that that is when they play the LFC tv interview with John Henry. The only thing they grasp on is the fact he hasn't committed on a stadium. It is all doom and gloom already with sky. We will see. As Roy said yesterday even if we get the interest payment money for players we will be a powerful player in the transfer Market again. I am personally happy about the new situation and can't wait for Sunday. Gazza

They want to carry on this story. Watch them become supportive towards H&G when any High Court case starts. Watch Sky Sports Soccer Saturday and see the underhand winding up Thommo receives today. Anti Liverpool as ever. they want us to fail.

JUST WAIT FOR SUNDAY. ALL RICHARD KEYES WILL COMMENT ON WILL BE THE SUBJECT OF STADIUM. HE HAS ALREADY STATED THAT ANFIELD IS A 'DUMP'. EXPECT HIM TO SUGGEST REDEVELOPMENT IS NOT THE WAY FORWARD. ANOTHER LIVERPOOL HATER AT SKY. AND JAMIE OFFERING MORE ANTI LIVERPOOL COMMENTS. HE HAS REALLY GONE DOWN IN MY ESTIMATIONS IN RECENT MONTHS. SKY SPORTS HATE GOING TO ANFIELD. WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THEY ARE AT BLACKPOOL IN A STUDIO ON SUNDAY ANYWAY.

I change the channel when Harry on tv. make me sick

Totally agree. I used to admire them both. Jamie was a very good player for us, if injury prone. But both have become very outspoken about Liverpool. Much of it unwarranted and also totally untrue. It started under Rafa and continues now against the club and its supporters. Can't wait for the Peter Storrie trial for unpaid taxes because lots of dodgy deals which Harry redknapp would have known about will become public. As someone said about deceased former manager of an East Midlands club, "he likes a bung".

All I can say is please don't believe this type of BS and do a bit of research. There are a string of wealthy American businessmen behind NESV, mainly some top asset management people. Forget the BS rumours, by now most people should have realised that 99.9% of the rumours have been wrong.

With respect to you the involvement of a Chinese billionaire and NESV is something I have heard from within financial circles in London. Yes NESV is made up of wealthy American businessman with a combined wealth of around $10bn, but it does not stop them inviting other people into their 'sports ventures'.

Carlos slim Helu wants a full buy out of New York Times asap , if granted he will be one of our majority owners :)

Carlos slim helu has a net personal worth of 60 billion +

I agree that SSN don't particually like liverpool, however they should because aftet last week all they have covered is LFC. Jamie Redknapp is a typical glory hunter. We made him what he is. I do respect him though. When where back on top SSN will be up our arses again. Just wait YNWA

Saw Tom & Jerry interview. Although glad to see the back of them, i cannot help but agree with him that Rafa had the financial backing from them in the transfer market, but his purchases were mainly rubbish who werent cut out to play for our great club. thus making substantial net loss in the transfer dealings. (for example, Robbie Keane, Aqualini) Rafa has to take some blame for our mess also.

- - - - - - - - - -
Rick Parry was behind the signing of Robbie Keane after he refused to sanction the purchase of David Villa before Euro 2008 for less than £15m. After Euro 2008 Villas's price had rocketed to over £30m+, hence Keane was purchased by Parry instead.

According to former Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks, a man with a track record of telling lies (see here and here), Liverpool's net spend under his and George Gillett's reign was £150m.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Friday, following the sale of the Club to NESV, Hicks told of an "epic swindle" and a conspiracy by Martin Broughton, Christian Purslow and Ian Ayre.

He also went on to blame Rafa Benitez and an "internet terrorism" campaign by the supporters.

Well, here's the facts, Liverpool's net spend was in fact £27m over the tenure of Hicks and Gillett's reign. So the Texan was only £122m out with his claims.

Since Gillett and Hicks took charge in February 2007, Liverpool spent £172m on players, but recouped £144m. Hicks claims to have spent £300m in his interview.

As has been previously detailed, Liverpool's net spend during the past four transfer windows has been negative.

Of course that didn't stop Harry Redknapp recently questioning why Liverpool fans were so angry at Hicks and Gillett. Just how much exactly has Harry spent in that same time period? How would the almighty Englishman feel if he had less than £10m per season to spend on players (net)?

Let's take the time to relive some memorable Hicks quotes:

* "People are worried that I might take money away from the Rangers to go to Liverpool. But it is just the reverse. Liverpool is going to throw off lots of extra money which, if I choose to, I can use for the Rangers or the Stars."
* "When I was in the leverage buy-out business we bought Weetabix and we leveraged it up to make our return. You could say that anyone who was eating Weetabix was paying for our purchase of Weetabix. It was just business. It is the same for Liverpool."
* "We made a significant investment in the playing squad during the summer and desperately want this team to succeed."

Sammy lee must be shown the door, he his useless. things started to decline when paco left due to differences with rafa. sami hypia to come back asap as a coach. alan hansen to be brought in along side king kenny to identify possible transfers, gud a coach roy may be he is not great in the transfer market time to re-write a new chapter in the clubs history. and ex players who still hold the club close to there heart need to be brought in. a top for 4 finish is still definatley a realistic target this season, theres 31 games left.

In 1999, Hicks entered into a partnership with Sport Club Corinthians Paulista, a successful Brazilian football club. Hicks assured the fans that a new stadium was in development, but this never materialized. (sound familiar)

In April 2010 Hicks's company defaulted on $525-million in bank loans backed by the Dallas Stars and a 50-per-cent interest in the American Airlines Center. (sound familiar)

He also declared himself bankrupt while owner of the Texas Rangers. If only Rick Parry had have checked on himnthe last 3 years would never have happened.

Tom Hicks has a history of ruining succesful sports teams. I find his interview on Sky Sports News insulting and shameful. Beyond the grave he is trying to cling on. Saying its not over, when it clearly is. So glad we've seen the back of them Texan Cowboys! Heres to a bright future! YNWA

Typical SSN. Just seen the hicks interview. No hard questions then try and prove what he said with the transfer and wages budget. Then after all that that is when they play the LFC tv interview with John Henry. The only thing they grasp on is the fact he hasn't committed on a stadium. It is all doom and gloom already with sky. We will see. As Roy said yesterday even if we get the interest payment money for players we will be a powerful player in the transfer Market again. I am personally happy about the new situation and can't wait for Sunday. Gazza

They want to carry on this story. Watch them become supportive towards H&G when any High Court case starts. Watch Sky Sports Soccer Saturday and see the underhand winding up Thommo receives today. Anti Liverpool as ever. they want us to fail.

JUST WAIT FOR SUNDAY. ALL RICHARD KEYES WILL COMMENT ON WILL BE THE SUBJECT OF STADIUM. HE HAS ALREADY STATED THAT ANFIELD IS A 'DUMP'. EXPECT HIM TO SUGGEST REDEVELOPMENT IS NOT THE WAY FORWARD. ANOTHER LIVERPOOL HATER AT SKY. AND JAMIE OFFERING MORE ANTI LIVERPOOL COMMENTS. HE HAS REALLY GONE DOWN IN MY ESTIMATIONS IN RECENT MONTHS. SKY SPORTS HATE GOING TO ANFIELD. WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THEY ARE AT BLACKPOOL IN A STUDIO ON SUNDAY ANYWAY.

Was watching something on didi on sky and he said that he is working on his f.a badge and would one day like to manage lfc.back tithe boot room days I say and them two are still loved at lfc.

Saw Tom & Jerry interview. Although glad to see the back of them, i cannot help but agree with him that Rafa had the financial backing from them in the transfer market, but his purchases were mainly rubbish who werent cut out to play for our great club. thus making substantial net loss in the transfer dealings. (for example, Robbie Keane, Aqualini) Rafa has to take some blame for our mess also.

Hicks is a complete joke he said he spent net of around 150 million on new players but was that his money no it was liverpools profit he used no more then 10 million of his own money and he has it back he tried to blame the global ressesion but that stadium would have been burdened with debt im glad we never got a stadium because we would never have paid back the loans for it under hicks and his puppy give NESV a chance i don't think lim has more then a billion and NESV has 16 members who are all wealthy no debt means an extra 25 to 30 million already

Love the site and over the last few weeks have enjoyed the posts on here infact kept me going in our very dark hours.
what a relief to wake up this morning and be posotive about the club not 1 negative thought just pure optomism for the future
i can't believe there are people still posting that NESV are the wrong owners , everything i have seen, heard or read about them suggests we will be back at the top sooner rather than later with a bigger/ better stadium and watching the likes of scumchester suffering like we have, only worse.
i want to reiterate my thanks to the holy trinity/ 3 musketeers whatever title we put on them we owe them our gratitude for an excellent job.
now its up to the players to show the balls those 3 did and fight for the club and the fans and make us proud once again.

Having watched the interview with Hicks last night it confirmed to me that we are well rid of those two.

Hicks said "It has hurt my family tremendously. This is a very valuable asset that was swindled away from me in an epic swindle."

That says it all - to the Liverpool fans the club has been and always will be far more than a 'valuable asset'. It's part of our life. When the teams doing well we're buzzing, when it's down, we are down.

I can't remember his exact words but he mentioned something about 'internet terrorism'. The people conducting this so-called 'internet terrorism' were the fans you prick - the people you seem to have forgotten in all of this. The reason this was happening was because of you and Gillette and the fact that you are full of s*!t.

There are a lot of other things he said but the overall feeling he gave me was not that he was miffed because he had lost ownership of the greatest football club in the world but because he had lost something that could have made him a lot of money in the long run.

With regards to NESV, I'm probably like a lot of other fans and am not sure exactly what the future holds. However, as Roy said yesterday, if the £25-30m that is no longer being paid in interest is directed into the playing squad then that's a world class player every season or 2 -3 very good players every season. More than we got with H&G.

One last thing - I know who I'd rather place my trust in and it's not H&G. Under H&G our great club was on it's knees. Now thanks to Martin Broughton (even if he's a Cheelsea fan!), Christian Purslow, Ian Ayre and NESV we have a chance to rebuild the mighty LFC. Walk on!

Soo happy the deal is done. But as the new owner said judge them on their actions. Watched the Hicks interview and he is obvioisly agrieved. If there is a "great swindle" then i for one think it was genius. Maybe the 3 musketeers did rob ol hicks but you got to look at why they did it. I believe everything they did was for the good of our club as we were on s* t street and already it feels like we have turned the corner. As the fans have said all along we don't want some billionaire splashing 100 mill on players another example of hicks just not listening. A little note on ssn i thought they have been quite objective through this whole process. A little sensationalist but that is what news reporters do. YNWA ck.

Why are SUPPORTERS still spouting BS about NESV and having american owners again?
1.we are rid of the disease that has dragged us to this low.
2.the new owners have a proven business track record "liverpoolfc 2010 are boston red sox 2001"

A rich sugar daddy come next season is not going to be a fix anymore for flailing clubs.PL have realised the trend and are placing transfer and spending embargos to stop someone with deep pockets just coming in and splashing the cash, yeah it would have been great to have spent £50-£100m in the summer, but where would that have put us in terms of debt !? Hence spending only what was sold and left from the previous january window.
NESV now have 2-3 month to just sit back and observe, they are not TALKERS THEY ARE DOERS!
Everyone knows as a club we are commercially huge, but this is still mainly based on our history.we need to jump into the millenium in terms of business operations.the bread and butter of our club is the fans, NESV will know this and i can see their main focus being on ground capacity and commercial growth globally and at home.
expect to see things like LFC stores open up countrywide.LFCTV go subscription.community insentives (goverment backed, we gain from the community feel and spirit=win/ win).Even things like concerts at anfield.they will squeeze every last £ they can out of what they already have before moving forward.personally i think they will re-develop Anfield and surrounding area, Long term scale (world cup bids are affected by things like this).
All in all i am genuinly excited about NESV, still a little aprehensive but JWH seems to be a down to earth guy, even taking the PI$$ out h&g "how are you paying for the club Mr Henry?" " in pounds!" classic confident reaction, journos even had a giggle.Expect an electric atmosphere v the toffees, i for 1 cannot wait.
big big thanks to our new fab 4.and all the ED`s and the GENUINE ITK guys on ere! !

If Hicks and Gillett think they've been swindled perhaos they would like to explain ho a club which they bought for around 180M three years ago and was sold for 300M today (an increase of over 50% in purchase price in 3 years) is a swindle when they have invested nothing (all investments were in fact loans taken out on the club).

The reality is if they had recouped the purchase price less the loans ( a negative equity) they would have broken even.

Which is roughly what has happened.

Apparently we are not a big club anymore according to the anti Liverpool mass media. So why have they given over two weeks of saturation coverage to the takeover along with the Chilean miners?
It is because people care about our club.
People are interested in our club.
We are massively supported throughout the UK.
We are massively supported throughout Europe.
We are massively supported throughout the world.

"Not to sure on these new owners myself. Lim off to clear all debt and big transfer funds. His seemed a better deal."

I almost always avoid attacking the posters I disagree with but focus on the issues instead, but in this case I will make an exception: either you are poorly informed or a fool. Lim has Man U supporting stores, has nothing like the collective shareholder wealth that owns NESV, and had every opportunity to try and outbid NESV in the bid process. . which he didn't. Then after the deal is done he suddenly goes public with a "better offer?" He is just as much of a charlatan as Huang and isn't the kind of owner the greatest football club on earth deserves. NESV have a great background by comparison and you like all other Liverpool supporters should thank your lucky stars (and stripes) that NESV are our new owners. And PS, I'm not American!

First of all this has nothing to do with nationality. By your writing I assume you was a Hicks and Gillett fan when they first arrived.
Did lim offer a better deal than NESV ?
Did Lim offer to clear all debt and give a big transfer fund?
What has NESV offered?
Who can't say NESV won't riddle the club in loans down the line?
Lim's got Man utd bars around Asia . And your point being? The fact the guy is a business man and offered his
OWN money into the deal should tell you he wants success.
But then hey your the expert. You should be a boss member or summit.

So, Hicks is devastated to lose the club. Intersting that he describes the takeover as an "epic swindle". I can't think of a better description of how he and Gillett gained control of the club in the first place. What goes around. . .
Thanks and congratulations to LFC's three graces in the form of Broughton, Purslow and Ayre for defeating the two disgraces.
Thank goodness they are gone.

Great day to be a Red, never thought I'd see this day tbh.

YNWA

Scott"

All I can say is please don't believe this type of BS and do a bit of research. There are a string of wealthy American businessmen behind NESV, mainly some top asset management people. Forget the BS rumours, by now most people should have realised that 99.9% of the rumours have been wrong.

I heard of this Carlos Slim also mentioned tonight (friday ) by a mate of mine who works for another hedge fund group in Chicago and he know alot of the Mill people. He does not know alot about football and asked me if I knew if Slim was involved as he heard rumblings of a mention of him and his telemax company. He is supposedly interested in Northern europes Hutchinson 3G which owns 3 mobile. He is also an avid football fan. Supposedly he part or will soon be part of NESV. This is all 2nd and third hand info so I don't know how much is to it but it's ironic how someone over there heard a similar rumour

That picture behind Hicks of the purposed new stadium in his SSN (anti-lfc) interview cost between 30-40 mill. I think you could buy the Sunflower's by Van Gough a bit cheaper.

Yet another 30-40 mill wasted and rising. Like you said Tom "you've been in sports franchise's for 50 years" What you failed to mention is that you tried and failled to drive all these "sports franchise's" into oblivion.

WOOO HOOOOO! Liverpool finally taken over! Thank f@@k for that! To all the liverpool fans lets look forward to the future and give nesv a chance to prove his worth for the club. I couldn't believe what i was watching with the Hicks interview bollocks. First of all, whats Martin Broughton supporting chelsea got to do with any take over deal, 2nd of all, he looked like he wanted to cry during the filming ha ha . . GOOD! and 3rd of all, why don't we ever hear from gillette mach 3 sensor blade? he probably was sucking of his marbles while hicks was doing the interview lol. I have no sympathy for the 2 pr1cks at all. Infact. .i still want to punch their faces in in one clean punch! For those who would want Huang and the Singapore guys to take over at the club, well. .ur avin a laugh mate! i'm chinese myself and trust me. .i don't want no owner having any sort of links with the man'ure and that useless huang who i've pretty much seen working in china town doing the dishes, anywhere near our club. You know what guys. .forget about the one clean punch to Hicks and Gillette's faces. How about 1.6 billion punches! lol

good site by the way Ed! Keep up the good work and keep us informed with what you hear regardless whether it's just a rumour or not mate.

I have been trying to find out about how NESV work and this is how things are going to work.
NESV have a great reputation and will now want to harm that rep in any way, shape or form, and will do things correctly. They won't talk about what there going to do, but rather do something and talk about what it was they done.
In reguards to transfers if the manager states he wants a player in excess of say 20m they will look at that player and see how they could Market that player for instance shirt sales, advertising boards, image rites and so on.

To the guy who said a rumour of wealthy family are part of Nesvs bid=100% correct and its actually Carlos Slim Helu, the worlds richest man he owns 20% of Ny York Times who have a 20% stake in Nesv

F*ck off SOS you know f*ck all, put your tail between your legs, hang your heads in shame how wrong were you about the magnificent 3, stick to what you Know best cheap coaches for the away games and that's it. you will destroy our club as much as hicks & gillet. you are not the voice of the KOP.
why don't you give a big appology to the people who have saved our club.
You are not recognised as a fans group and you will ruin any chance of any of Fans representaion at board room level.

Don't agree mate about what you are saying about SOS.

BUT i do agree they should make a public apology along with RAWK and Empire Of The Kop.

All I can say is please don't believe this type of BS and do a bit of research. There are a string of wealthy American businessmen behind NESV, mainly some top asset management people. Forget the BS rumours, by now most people should have realised that 99.9% of the rumours have been wrong.

Oh believe me, I'm well aware of who the 17 partners of NESV are & their collective Net worth. I follow the Red Sox quite closely. However I have heard this from good sources, the family did not want to be named. Not all rumours are BS by the way, remember Mill Financial/ Huang rumour, seems to be some truth to that.

To be honest im very piss with SSN interview of Tom Hicks. Y didn't they ask him the big questions like y did u lie to the fans again and again. He sat there tellin the world about how our great club had just mugged him and that RBS had robbed his family of this great ASSET ( Fu*kin asset. . The fu*kin nerve ££) hey yank how long did u think people would sit back and watch u strip our club naked and let the football world laugh at us. Debt up to our eyeballs and squad that's not up to it that's what u left us with in the end. U piss and moan about how its so unfair. Bottom line u made promises to all kopites and didn't deliver on 1. U borrowed money and didn't pay it back. If the man on the street doesn't pay his mortgage the bank takes his assets y should u be any different. And i suppose the way u lost ur baseball team wasnt ur fault either. Wake up and smell the coffee Tom, ur a con man so who cares if u got con'd. Its karma. Anyway well done to the home team for giving us back our club.

I couldn't just click believe when I read this. . .I have to add my voice and thank you for saying it so well. Both in here and on Thisisanfield I repeatedly clashed with the clowns who were having a go at MB and CP when anyone with half a brain would not have agreed with the rubbish that was spouted against them. I totally, fervently agree that they (and I don't mean MB and CP!) should go away hang their heads in shame and never darken the doors of the kop again. {ed's note - I have spent months trying to defend Purslow on the sites myself, the petty vendetta against him by SOS destroyed any good work they did do.}

That picture behind Hicks of the purposed new stadium in his SSN (anti-lfc) interview cost between 30-40 mill. I think you could buy the Sunflower's by Van Gough a bit cheaper.

Yet another 30-40 mill wasted and rising. Like you said Tom "you've been in sports franchise's for 50 years" What you failed to mention is that you tried and failled to drive all these "sports franchise's" into oblivion.

"There are rumblings that NESV have a silent partner & it could be the Chinese. Not Huang though. Apparently a very wealthy family. I have heard this from a few sources, anyone else heard this?

Great day to be a Red, never thought I'd see this day tbh.

" Don't know if its just me, a red for 34yrs, but i smell a small rat. Maybe wrong but only 2yrs can tell. Still debt on the club and still americans. Do we have Johns years to find out.
Hope we are not getting shown up again by Blues version of Mr Bean, hope i'm wrong but i can't take anymore.
Transfer window will show if we mean business or pleasure, fingers crossed and lets hope."

When I see comments like this I see red - and I don't mean Liverpool red. throughout the saga, when so many supporters were abusing the Chairman and CEO, I kept saying that MB's reputation in particular was such that he could be trusted absolutely. Now we have new owners with a quality reputation and record and we start saying we smell a rat?! For FS, if you don't understand business and ownership issues then don't comment on them. People wanted Huang etc or some rich Arab sugar-daddy? In preference to a very serious, professional sports group? I rest my case.

Just watched the Hicks interview on Murdoch Sports (might as well be the scum). Sky Sports hates our club and throughout this horrible last few weeks they have loved the fact that we might go down the pan. Well Boll* *s to you. Your beloved Scumchester Utd might be next, administration bankruptcy, oh dear what a shame. Back to the interview. Nice picture of a dream on the wall behind him (costs money mate, spade in the ground, dog s* t). Sorry but the act of a hard done to grand dad won't wash. Last time I saw a look like that was when I wouldn't pass the roses to my old fella on Xmas day. By the way isn't really quiet from the Gillette camp. I think he is made up to be out of it. Dont know, just my opinoin
