Three Years And Still No "Snoogy Doogy"...

Spade in the ground within 60days? Yet another lie...
So, unless you don't have a television, have been unable to access the internet and don't know what a radio is then you must have been bombarded in the past week or so with Liverpool news left, right and centre. Of course it's all good that we're finally being updated but when the news reports contain words only somebody with an English degree would understand and when the levels of business mentioned would only be understandable if you were in one of Lord Sugar's tasks, well it can all be pretty darn confusing.
No business head myself i have therefore attempted to provide an update on the current situation...
New England Sports Ventures (NESV) are headed by John W Henry & Thomas C Werner. Current owners of baseball team "Boston Red Sox", as well as Fenway Park (Red Sox Stadium). Also under their financial wings are the New England Sports Network, 50% of Roush Fenway Racing (a NASCAR team) and Fenway …

Standards Corrupted

Image
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 …

Roy Takes The Anfield Hot Seat

Best of luck Roy YNWA...
Bit slow with keeping up with the latest news it may seem but fear not, i was aware Roy Hodgson was unveiled last week as manager, just couldn't find time to do a post so here it is.
Hodgson has left behind a Fulham side who have believed to have been paid a compensation fee in the region of £2million and stepped into as he called it "The biggest job in club football..."
Of course he's right, Liverpool pushing aside the enormous parasite sucking on the club at the moment which is the case of the ownership, is still, and always has been a very lucrative job in club football, and as Roy also highlighted we are still "Britain's most successful football club."
Unfortunately under normal circumstances a new manager would be met with extreme excitement and the fans would be filled with hope. However, this time out through no fault of the manager, the fan base simply cannot get excited, firstly because they know the harsh reality that unti…

Looking Into A Mirror?

Image
As far as worst case scenarios go, Liverpool comparing their current financial situation to Pompey's current off field crisis would be top of my list, but as ludicrous as the idea is, it's not as far fetched as it it sounds.
I'm sure you are all aware of the two clowns currently in the hot seat of "running" our club, without going into facts and figures, it is Tom Hicks and George Gillett who are the reason we find ourselves so cash strapped and the reason why Rafael Benitez is forced to play his best negotiating skills in the transfer market, constantly having to sell to buy.
Not forgetting that (as far as i am aware) our current finance structure is built on a system that assumes qualification into the Champions League i.e. 4th spot. In the current realisation that finishing in 5th or even worse is highly possible who knows what the next step would be for our struggling football club. There is a fantastic article relating to this written by Paul Tomkins (Twitter:…
