Could you post me a link to the thread on that forum where the lad said he didn't care about mansour's human rights issues .Yes, I think there could well be something in this which many including myself overlooked. It's clear the source isnt from Liverpool and the timing is strange. If the deal was knocked back last January, you'd expect disclosure not long after that. Instead, we've strengthened the team and started pre season and the league effectively.
What better way to de stabilise the club than to leaks thse details of a failed bid. Everyone knows there is a sizeable faction of LFC fans who want rid of FSG. On another forum, someone posted they didnt care Mansour's mob has an appalling Human Rights record, all they wanted was mega money spent on the team so we could compete with City. Well, I dont subscribe to the view on dismissing Human Rights just so long as your club is successful.
It is a tired cliche but we really must be careful what we wish for. FSG may piss off some people all the time but another Hicks & Gillet ownership would piss off a lot more people.
I like the fact that FSG are making the club self sufficient. I detest everything about mega wealthy owners who come in and steal a football club from its fanbase and community. I desparately want Liverpool to win the title, more so than any Champions League win or domestic cup double. Id happily forego winning the CL in the next 10 years if we could be Champions of England 2 or 3 times in that same period (others may disagree and they are entitled to that view). I used to go to Anfield and the discussion wasnt whether we'd win the title but who'd finish second to us. That's now a dim and distant memory.
Yes, some good points. Unfortunately, too many people read the headline £2bn and all rationale goes out the window, the man must be mega rich to talk of such numbers. One only has to think Derek Whyte, the man who 'proved' to the then Rangers owner he had to money to buy Rangers and take the club forward. Only he didnt have the money and was using a loan based on future Season Ticket income to pull the scam.
