Friends Of Liverpool

That Tom Hicks simply will not go away.
Associated Press claim that Hicks & Gillette have obtained a restraining order in a Texas court, blocking the sale of Liverpool FC to NESV by Martin Broughton following today’s London High Court ruling that a sale could take place.
Hicks and Gillette claim the sale is “an epic swindle and undervalues the club by hundreds of millions of pounds.”
They only ‘paid’ Rick Parry £230 million for our club 3 years ago so thats another lie.
Hicks is also claiming $1.6 billion in damages for his percieved loss of revenue from the impending sale of the club to John Henry.
The Liverpool board plus Mr. Henry are locked in negotiations since 8pm this evening (Tue).
Let us hope they succeed, lets also hope that hated Hicks looses out again.


Following the successful conclusion of High Court proceedings today, the Boards of Directors of Kop Football and Kop Holdings met tonight and resolved to complete the sale of Liverpool FC to New England Sports Ventures.
Regretably, Thomas Hicks and George Gillett have tonight obtained a Temporary Restraining Order from a Texas District Court against the independent directors, Royal Bank of Scotland PLC and NESV to prevent the transaction being completed.
The independent directors consider the restraining order to be unwarranted and damaging and will move as swiftly as possible to seek to have it removed.
A further statement will be made in due course
Please leave a comment, I am doing my best to keep you all informed of the latest goings on at LFC
