Everything has a price - everything can be for sale. E.g My car is not for sale, but if you turn up with enough cash I will sell it. Same as my house, my trainers, and my arsehole.

Click baiting at its best - will help bring out the same usual arguments for and against the owners.

Mods you could just delete 50 pages of this thread and adjust the dates on the remaining posts and no one would be any wiser.
Not sure how much I’d sell my arsehole for.... quite precious to me.

I dont think the club is actively for sale. Like others have said, everything has its price if someone offers enough. I do think FSG are continuing to look for a minority investor although exactly how that works and what the minority investor gets for their money, Im not sure.

The easy bit is putting a figure on it ...... the difficult bit is finding someonevwilling to meet that valuation!

My fear is that the sort of prospective buyers who are not only capable of stumping up but willing to stump up that sort of dosh are not necessarily the type of owners this club wants or needs.m

I thought FSG were going to be at Liverpool long term, this is what they said or words to that effect.I am hugely worried tbh and it had come as a bit of a shock by selling now!

Maria, I suspect that the club has been on the market since FSG took over. Its no different to any other business acquisition. There is nothing to suggest that a sale is any more imminent now than it was 12 months ago. Conversely, FSG could very well still be the club’s owners in 12 month’s time. I don’t think you need to be unduly concerned just now! :)

Important to note that it is the New York Post, not the Washington Post. The Washington Post is one of the two most important and credible newspapers in America. The New York Post is designed to be read and left on the subway.
Correction duly noted. Thanks.

I didn't know this. I found some of their articles so misleading and inaccurate a times especially in Middle Eastern current affairs, I stopped reading it. Thanks for the information

I hope so. If the club ended up a front for the Saudi Arabian Royal Family, that would be the end of road for me and LFC.
Count me in. For people in Liverpool, it's different, they'll support their local club no matter what, and it's only right. But for me, it would be the end, and I'd probably stop watching elite football at the same time.

Said it all along. FSG have been great owners. Better the devil you know. We’d all love owners with bottomless pockets who love the game and want nothing but success. Pretty much like FSG are with their rounders team. Crazy money from an oppresive totalatarian regime would be a different matter. Winning at all and any costs?

Could we all offer to chip £200 in? All 10 million of us?

Didn’t think so.......
I would

personally, I would be gutted if the owners sold the club,
I think they have done a grand job since buying the club,

This club was a fucking mess, when they took over, make no mistake about that,
we where a ship drifting and lost at sea

they have got rid of all the dead wood, brought a calmness, stability, professionalism and direction to the club,
increased the capacity and have plans to add more seats, increased revenue
and any cash they have made has been re-invested in the club, ( I know other will argue about the cash bit)

So whats not to like?

Granted, it hasn't all been plain sailing and they have made mistakes, Comolli, Moneyball, Rodgers, and the TC
(where I think they where trying to be too smart, and get ahead of the game)
but they realised their mistake pretty quickly and changed their thinking and adapted,
so they are not stubborn in their thinking and can change to suit the clubs needs.

So I hope they are here for a very long time,
