Football FanCast guest columnist Des O’Malley feels the banker’s ultimatum to Hicks and Gillett, to strike a deal
with potential investors, will end up killing two birds with one stone.
One of the great problems of Liverpool over the years has been their inability to communicate with supporters, which have subsequently left everyone uncertain and forced to draw their own conclusions over certain issues. This Saudi presence at Anfield and talk of F6’s intention to obtain a 50% shareholding has left us all unaware, of what the hell is actually going on.
Well it has taken a little time to get there and despite us all thinking that the Saudi’s interest was merely to get the
Stanley Park project on the go, it appears that both Hicks and Gillett have been issued an ultimatum by the bankers to reduce the debt by attracting new investors, or simply that they have to sell up.
In many ways that is good news, as supporters have grown concerned about the club’s financial well being, therefore this ultimatum is a way of killing two birds with one stone here, as not only will it mean that the club get a suitable cash injection, but also will mean that both Hicks and Gillett will have to relinquish their hold over the club as a third party share holding will mean that they can no longer have it all their own way with regards to the future running of the football club. It will be a real win, win for all supporters, especially those who hold the American’s ownership with such contempt.
