Standards Corrupted

Yes that's right folks, there is no better way to describe it, Liverpool FC's standards have been corrupted. Why? By whom you say? Well look no further than Mr George Gillett and Mr Tom Hicks, wherever they may be at this moment in time, point is, they just don't care.

The financial abyss that these two supposedly "trustworthy" custodians of our club have got us into is now beyond descriptive paragraphs. I shan't sit here and try to spurt out facts and figures because we've all read the articles, the paperwork, the lies.

I for one for these reasons, along with many others am finding it extremely difficult to justify why i should fork out nearly £50 from money i haven't really even got to get me a nice brand spanking new Liverpool shirt this season.

Firstly, it makes me sick to the stomach knowing i am funding the parasites rampage. Secondly, when we all have a long hard think about it, doesn't it make you realise how bloody expensive football shirts are these days!

I purchase the shirt to show my support, but here i am purchasing a shirt supporting nothing but the downfall of the club i love.

What should i do? I hear you say. What should we do? What can we do?

It's unbelievably simple, firstly put aside £20 for the shirt and a couple of quid for the p&p, secondly punch in to your address bar. When you reach the site select the pre-order tab and insert your details to register your interest, when you receive an email back you can complete the payment and you will have yourself a fantastic piece of design from the hard work of several people.

Not only this but most importantly, most crucially, by wearing this shirt you are not abandoning or disowning your team, those boys on the pitch are still being supported, with the influential and iconic Liver Bird and the significant five stars, nobody is forgetting the football, we are simply protesting against what is killing it.

The shirt is purposely black mainly to signify the mourning of our club but also in relation to finance (out the red and into the black etc etc). It is made by VIGA a professional brand who already supply other sportswear and i think it looks superb.

My name is down on that list and yours should be too. Don't be a pawn in the Yanks game, this isn't a business, this is our club.
