After yesterday’s ‘story’ from the Daily Mirror that Tom Hicks wanted to sell, Martin Lipton the writer of yesterday’s article, has decided to stick by his ailing story.
Tom Hicks was rumoured to be furious about the story which he dismissed out of hand, as did Rick Parry who called it a ‘complete load of rubbish’.
Today, the Daily Mirror, and Martin Lipton, suggest that DIC may be interested again.
He also went on to quote these three unnamed Liverpool ‘fans’:
“Both Yanks can XXXX off if they sack Rafa,” said one fan, with another adding: “These cowboys have taken a massive loan to buy the club. Where is the bloody investment?”
And a third suggested: “It would have been better if we’d sold to the Dubai consortium.”
Martin, I know plenty more Liverpool fans than you do and none of them were impressed by the way DIC took their time and decided to dump the club last minute. Although Hicks and Gillette may have had a little spat with Rafa recently – Liverpool fans can appreciate that they are investing in a world class stadium and are helping to improve Liverpool both on and off the field.
The three ‘fans’ you quote (if they even exist) are certainly not representative of our intelligent, loyal supporters.
Time to drop your story Martin before you lose all your credibility.
