Kop fans take major step in KO'ing Yank owners
Published 23:00 20/ 09/ 10


Liverpool fans have won a major battle in their fight to oust their American owners.

Irate supporters have mounted an increasingly hostile campaign to persuade financial groups not to extend any more credit to keep Tom Hicks and George Gillett in power at Anfield.

The pair need to refinance a debt of more than £230million by early October or risk losing their hold on the club.

They have courted current lenders RBS and at least 10 other banks and investment companies in a desperate attempt to get the money which will allow them to take back control of the club from the current board.

But the Mirror can reveal that the pair have been told that the political situation at the club is too volatile to contemplate any major investment.

The Americans need to refinance because RBS are due to call in loans in October. If that happens and they can't find funding, then they will lose control to the bank.

The club could even be sold for as low as £300m, which would see the Americans out of pocket.

KopFaithful, who is the organisation behind the opposition to refinance, said last night: "We are encouraged by the latest news, but we remind every Liverpool fan that the fight is not over until the Americans are out of our club."


Off the the mirror website. As one of the fans who has been majorly participating in this smear campaign against the owners, this is a step in the right direction. HOWEVER, we should not rest until the owners are 100% gone!

If SSN is reporting that Hicks has been given the funds, i can't believe it, i don't believe it.

Hey Macca, have you any idea when the action is gonna start, not that I don't believe you, it's just that the tension is killing me. Also do you actually know who the buyer is, and if so how good is it gonna be for us?

Sooty.

Sooty, all LFC fans.

The only info i have been given is that we are close, i have no names, no dates, just we are close.

I would love to tell you more but i don't have any news.

I am confident that the guys making the decisions will make the right one.

If SSN is reporting that Hicks has been given the funds, i can't believe it, i don't believe it.

On the Sky Sports website it says they have l*cked him off. It won't happen, The man is A BANKRUPT waiting to happen.

Sooty

Keep an eye on SSN Sooty but everyone remember that it is Alan Myers doing the report.

The same Alan Myers that received an E.mail at 2 am and it said "Yaya Kirdi was days away from completing a deal".

The same Alan Myers who Hicks did a telephone interview and said "This will be a big summer for LFC"

It could be true but i said then that Hicks will make fools of SSN

Well, the clubs skint, we can't buy players, we haven't got a new ground, the owners are k*ats, all the newspapers are saying were finished, so is Stan Collymore, (so it must be true), were 16th in the league. Things have never looked so bad. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I think we've given everybody a big enough head start now don't you think.

Everyone is talking about this take over and that takeover, but I'm not sure anyone knows who is gonna do what! Just remember the takeover rumours are variables. We, the fans are the consistent entity. Everyone is laughing at us. We need to stick together and show Roy, Stevie, Carra, Nando, Pepe, et al that we may lose the battle, but collectively WE will win the war! As Roy said when he took over, You'll never walk alone is not a Rodgers and Hammersteins song anymore, it's a mantra for generations. My old fella is a red, I'm a red and so are my 3 kids. They can take my body and soul, but they cannot take my dignity! Nobody, except us, knows what it's like to be a Red! We don't slag off opposing teams like the Mancs. We celebrate who we were, are, and going to be in the future! It's gonna be hard, but hang tough! YNWA. Steve61

"Deke Reefer

What are you views on the takeover? ?

Macca"

I am not claiming to be ITK or to know any of the directors. I think ED and Sharky have been honest in the opinions they have given and we should just wait and see what happens and we will get a new owner at some point. Months ago I accepted what -JAMES007- said and it was ALL lies in the end. I am sure everything you are saying is LIES as well. Every week you say exactly the same: we are near or just days away and every week LIES.

That's what I think.

To Macca,
If and when we get taken over do you think Roy will still be manager?, and what's your own views at the moment?.

Player transfer's as we all know we are bad in the wide area's, any back up striker, and also do you think the winning bid will get the new ground started before feb next year.
Whats your views on the above

Hi Blair Mayne YNWA,

From what i have been told, from a different source the Sheikh is one of the offers on the table, not sure how true the info is.

Macca

Woud love this to be true Macca as i've prayed many a night for Sheikh Mohammed to come to our aid like we did in 2006 and 2008.

But like i said people are saying they know for a fact that there are buyers/ bidders but no one can tell us who they are?

Confusing!

The info I have is that Sheik Mohammed will be our new owner. The guy has never forgot how the yanks made him look a fool when he offered them an escape route with 100m each.

The man always gets what he wants. He is screwing them over. Hicks will regret this.

Why?

I was at the stadium tour on saturday with an ex player as tour guide, he was very coy when I asked about possible new owners. Had a long chat with one of the ground staff and the rumor around the club at that bank of Kuwait on behalf of Kuwaiti Royal Family have or are in final stages of buying the club and deal would be done by the 4th october.
All I can say was he seemed really genuine and had no need to bulls* t us. make of it as you will hope it's true but had so many possible owners of late who know's. Just thought I'd share it with everyone.

Usmanov wants his own club. He has failed to gain control of Arsenal. The 'blue blood' shareholders at Arsenal won't sell to him. Kroenke more likely to gain control there. Usmanov to sell out , to buy Liverpool?

I really believe that LFC have a preferred bidder, due diligence has been completed and the deal to be rubber stamped. The only sticking point has been Hicks and Gillett (more so hicks) who has been desperate not to accept the bid (which gives them no profit and just clears the debt).

Broughton, Purslow and Ayre know actually what is happening and can't say anything until the deal is signed. They are confident of LFC's position and won't talk to the media until legally allowed to do so.

Hicks is backed into a corner and is running around trying to find a creditor. He is probably on Ebay selling stuff on that as well. Once the RBS date arrives in October LFC will turn to Hicks and say 'show us the money' he won't have it and he will be removed.

Some people have had a go at Macca. He is sticking to his guns and sending the same message. I believe him.

In the meantime if your going the match v Sunderland join in on the 'sit in' protest


LIVERPOOL FANS, PREPARE TO BE VERY SURPRISED AS TO WHO THE PREFFERED BIDDER IS.

Go on surprise us! It's not David Moores is it?

Was Moores the problem? Parry should take most of the blame as well as LFC financial advisors. {ed's note - Moores was far more at fault than Parry.}

I am sure over the weekend when you heard Hicks was trying to refinance i was not on here trying to backtrack.

What i am telling you about Ian is 1 million percent correct.

We are all fans together and i am just trying to pass on as much correct info that i can.

I am not passing on the info to get a pat on the back from your goodself, just trying to put peoples mind at ease.

Look guys havin a go at Macca is getting you nowhere,
Whether he is lying or not is irrevelant.
The truth will reveal its head soon either way.
At least he is being positive unlike a lot of people.
Why be sooo negative?

Where is macca with all his statements on a done deal now that this refinancing is possible?
mickreds

THERE IS A LOT OF GRANDSTANDING TAKING PLACE FROM HICKS IN PARTICULAR. THIS IS ALL ABOUT DESPERATION AND HICKS WANTING A HEALTHIER PROFIT FROM THE SALE. H&G WILL BOTH GO. THIS RACE FOR REFINANCING BY HICKS WILL FAIL. THEN THE MYSTERIOUS BIDDERS THAT ARE UNKNOWN TO US AND THE MEDIA BECAUSE OF CONFIDENTIALITY CLAUSES AND OTHER AGREEMENTS WILL SOON COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK AND WE WILL HAVE NEW CUSTODIANS OF THIS TRUELY ADMIRED AND GREAT CLUB THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.


And because the media and press are not been fed any nuggets on the whole process (because of the confidentiality agreements), they continue to make apocalyptic comments about the club.
These confidentiality clauses are in place because some very wealthy and influential groups/ individuals do not want to be known as 'failed bidders' for Liverpool if Broughton does not choose them as new custodians of Liverpool FC.

One day you will be right. Anyone could write the same carp every week and one day be right. So at least one Liverpool fan here who does not want to here the same carp every week from you.

There seems to me to be an awful lot of scaremongering on this site at the moment.

The way i see it though is that if Tom Hicks cannot refinance(looking ever likely now after the Blackstones knock back), it comes down to whether RBS are going to re-finance us and with the precarious finances of H&G that probably isn't going to happen either. RBS have no alternative but to call in the loan, Hicks knows this! .

When this happens in October, the bank will take ownership and sell to the highest bidder on the proviso they get back what they were owed on the original loan. Call me sceptical but there would be an awful lot of bidders for the club at 240-280 million pounds. Whoever buys it won't have any debts on the club and would see it as a good investment when the club is worth 400+ million, so far from it being bad news at the moment, just wait for RBS to take control and all will be fine.

You say this every week Macca. We could wait for another year and then you say I told you so. You have no links to Ian Ayres as you claim. You are just a chancer.

Deke Reefer

With all due respect you have no idea who i am and what i know. Do you think deals of this size are done in 5 mins, i have been told that we will be ok, i have no reason to doubt that.

I am sure over the weekend when you heard Hicks was trying to refinance i was not on here trying to backtrack.

What i am telling you about Ian is 1 million percent correct.

We are all fans together and i am just trying to pass on as much correct info that i can.

I am not passing on the info to get a pat on the back from your goodself, just trying to put peoples mind at ease.

I really believe that LFC have a preferred bidder, due diligence has been completed and the deal to be rubber stamped. The only sticking point has been Hicks and Gillett (more so hicks) who has been desperate not to accept the bid (which gives them no profit and just clears the debt).

Broughton, Purslow and Ayre know actually what is happening and can't say anything until the deal is signed. They are confident of LFC's position and won't talk to the media until legally allowed to do so.

Hicks is backed into a corner and is running around trying to find a creditor. He is probably on Ebay selling stuff on that as well. Once the RBS date arrives in October LFC will turn to Hicks and say 'show us the money' he won't have it and he will be removed.

Some people have had a go at Macca. He is sticking to his guns and sending the same message. I believe him.

In the meantime if your going the match v Sunderland join in on the 'sit in' protest

Question that must be directed to the FA.
When H&G first took over the club, they took over as a partnership which has completely different legal terms and definations to someone who takes over as a sole owner.
Hicks effectively taking over by himself is giving the club a completely different legal owner so will he not have to sit the FA fit and proper persons test by himself - if so, surely he cannot pass!
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Should the FA beaware of this?"

Why would Hicks fail - because the Liverpool fans dislike him? I think not. How would RBS pass - they went bust and were resuced by the Treasury?

Ed, As you already have mentioned that you think that the club would be taken over? I just want to ask that do you think that Hicks would fail in his bid to refinance the debt? its good to hear that he's lost it atleast for now. . {ed's note - Hicks will have to perform a miracle to get someone to refinance him to gain full control over Liverpool. He has failed miserably in his numerous spells as owner of sports teams, he has become a bad risk and this is not the time to lend to those.}

RE:David Moores

Concerning David Moores and liverpool fc. Back in 1996 liverpool where offered King's Dock football stadium as liverpools new home which as part of King's Dock regeneration the city was going through.

David Mopres turned down the opportunty of goverment build stadium at a cut down £30million. King's Dock stadium would been 60,000 seater and goverment built as a regeneration program.

Instead managed to get planning permission for 60,000 stadium at stanley park at the cost of 300million that he and the club didn't have.

Liverpool Council offered King's Dock stadium to everton, who couldnt afford 30million ever.

I can't understand why he would get the plans in place, and then bring in arse-holes like Hicks as new owners.

I understand Moores is too poor to run a large club like liverpool, but when he was offered King's Dock project for 30million. I would have bitten the councils hand off.

I know the potential to expand the club is 0% in that location, the club would have been in a better position today if he took the deal.

The city would be in a better state too.

I just can't understand a man like him.

He must have been planning to sell the club since he got control of it in 1991 and by 1996 he could see the wage bill of foreign players was likely to make it unprofitable to own a club.


Does anybody know what happend to the idea of Wembley of the North with a near 100,000 capacity to built near Aintree for the two liverpool clubs to share, first mentioned in around 1990?

Anybody hear the 'breathless and exciteable' Tony Evans, Deputy Sports Editor of The Times last night on Talksport? He again stated that Liverpool were in meltdown off the pitch. But he did admit there are several interested parties who were unwilling to pay the price wanted by H&G. As ever he still sees the Huang bid as 'real', above board and not publicity seeking. But he would wouldn't he after so whole heartedly publicising Huang on the front page and sports pages of The Times over a whole week in early August.

THERE IS A LOT OF GRANDSTANDING TAKING PLACE FROM HICKS IN PARTICULAR. THIS IS ALL ABOUT DESPERATION AND HICKS WANTING A HEALTHIER PROFIT FROM THE SALE. H&G WILL BOTH GO. THIS RACE FOR REFINANCING BY HICKS WILL FAIL. THEN THE MYSTERIOUS BIDDERS THAT ARE UNKNOWN TO US AND THE MEDIA BECAUSE OF CONFIDENTIALITY CLAUSES AND OTHER AGREEMENTS WILL SOON COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK AND WE WILL HAVE NEW CUSTODIANS OF THIS TRUELY ADMIRED AND GREAT CLUB THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

Blackstone Group, the private equity firm said to be on the verge of backing Tom Hicks in his last ditch bid to retain control of Liverpool FC in the face of fierce fan opposition, is understood to have ended all talks with the Texan.

Hicks had approached GSO Capital Partners, the debt restructuring arm of the private equity group, to secure the funds required to repay the £237m outstanding to the Royal Bank of Scotland in the middle of next month and remain in control of the club.

It had been reported that a £280m, two-year package had been agreed in principle. But it is understood that, although talks took place between GSO and Hicks, they ended without a firm offer on the table. The Guardian has learned that GSO has now walked away and there is no chance of the Blackstone subsidiary lending Hicks the money. Liverpool fans' groups over the weekend made clear the depth of their hostility to the idea that Hicks could be bailed out by GSO, effectively buying him more time to find a new investor willing to pay a premium on the £218.9m the Americans paid for the club in 2007.

Hicks met with the club's chairman, Martin Broughton, and the rest of the Liverpool board last week to outline his plan. RBS, which throughout has maintained that it wishes to find a solution that is in the best long term interests of the club, would nevertheless have no further say in the matter if its loan was repaid in full.

Hicks and George Gillett put Liverpool up for sale in April, with RBS parachuting in Broughton to lead the sale process. But despite a series of high profile approaches, from Rhone Capital and Kenny Huang, no proper bid was ever lodged.

Hicks had hoped that the funding would allow him to take full control, pay down the debt and provide funds for players. Now that Blackstone has walked away, it leaves him desperately searching for a replacement loan before the mid-October refinancing deadline. It would also see Gillett's 50% stake diluted, with the Colorado-native staying at Liverpool in an inactive role.

A first attempt by Hicks to refinance the debt was rejected earlier this year by the Liverpool board to allow Barclays Capital to continue the ongoing search for a buyer. If Hicks approached the board with a new proposal, it is believed that they would also look to block it, although lawyers are split on whether they would be able to do so under company law.

A group of Reds have come up with the letter below, please send it to the parties addressed, we need to show that we are serious.

Hicks must be stopped.

Dear Sirs,

If your company agrees a £280million refinancing deal with Tom Hicks to retain his share in Liverpool Football Club, then the only return that you will see on your investment is bad publicity and a severe backlash from Liverpool supporters worldwide.

As you are aware, Hicks is trying to refinance his debt to the Royal Bank of Scotland before October 6th so that he can continue his disastrous ownership of Liverpool Football Club.

There is no point in us listing the countless and well-documented offenses of the grossly destructive reign of Tom Hicks and George Gillett. The media is full of articles about them. And that is the point. No longer do we rely on the occasional heroic journalist to expose corruption within institutions we hold dear. This is a new age, an era of organized resistance at the click of a mouse.

You are facing an energized, well-informed mass of Liverpool fans from around the world. We are tapped into a constant stream of information on the ownership situation. Every day, dozens of web forums buzz with the latest news. Protest marches, newspaper ads, boycotts and billboards are organized. Every move Hicks makes is scrutinized. And every associate of his is warned.

Refinancing is our nightmare scenario. Anybody who helps Tom Hicks refinance will become our primary target.

We have a decent track record of taking on and beating those who attempt to blacken the name of Liverpool Football Club. As an example, the Boycott of the Sun Newspaper following their disgraceful coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster in 1989 is said to have cost News International an estimated £10 million a year.

If the Blackstone Group / GSO Capital Partners join forces with Tom Hicks in raping and pillaging Liverpool Football Club, then you will be making a very powerful enemy.

You have been warned.

Yours faithfully,

To: -

It is a sad and scary time for all Reds fans all over the world. I totally agree that Hicks and whoever is maintaining his continued regime at Anfield not receive any support from us whatsoever. Whether this means a boycott of the club, matches, merchandise. what needs to be remembered that the players and the team need to realise that we are still for them. Instead of regurgitating the same old rumours and angst, we should instead be offering creative suggestions as to how we can rid ourselves of the Americans whilst maintaining our support in the players and the team. This is not about clicking believable or unbelievable, this is about going on the offensive and doing something constructive in ensuring Hicks is turfed out but not at the expense of the team.

Please join the boycot and send emails
Boycott of Blackstone interests: do your bit to oust the liar Hicks!

As many of you will be aware, GSO a leverage specialist, part of the Blackstone group, is trying to enable Hicks to remain in ownership (sole) at LFC by extending to him a 281m loan at high interest rates for two years, with no investment in players or the stadium included in that deal.

Blackstone have a number of interests in the UK and we are calling for all LFC supporters to boycott the following products. Do not buy the brands, do not visit the restaurants/ venues, cancel T-mobile contracts if you can, informing them why, and don't sign up to them.

Dear Sirs,

I am writing to let you know that as you are part of the Blackstone group of interests, I am now boycotting your products and services. I am part of a movement launched by supporters of Liverpool Football Club in protest at Blackstone/ GSO's involvement, as mentioned in the UK press, in extending a loan to enable Tom Hicks to continue his ownership of the club.

I shall also be detailing previous bad experiences of your products and services on review sites on the web.

Yours very sincerely,

Surely hicks refinancing is a way of helping all parties get the desired end result?
the club will not be bought before oct 6th so hicks is buying more time to sell the club. he does not want and extra, higher intrest loan so that he can say on for years to come. its just a stop-gap/ time filler until we all get what we want, including hicks.
surley the CLUB will be in a worse state if we can't sell or refinace before the deadline.

Martin O'Neill is in line for a ­sensational return to football - as the next Liverpool boss.

Two of the consortiums trying to buy the Merseyside club want to take ex-Aston Villa chief O'Neill to Anfield if they are successful with proposed takeovers.

(ed. . .what to u think about this rumour, it's from the daily star) {ed's note - they will only be guessing and linking the club to who makes the story sound interesting. They might get the guess right, but this is clearly a guess, not one of the consortiums will have made mention of future managers, why would they? By the time the deal is complete Roy could have turned things around and got the club back on track. MON might have a job, though why the hell anyone would want to employ one of the most over rated coaches of all time I will never know.}
