FOR SALE: Liverpool FC

Liverpool’s owners have today brought in Chelsea supporter and British Airways boss Martin Broughton as the club’s Chairman and announced their intention to sell the football club.

After 3 years and 3 months of torrid ownership which has saw failure to start work on a new stadium and a failure to invest in the playing squad, Tom Hicks and George Gillett have brought in the new Chairman to try and help sell the club on.

Liverpool were bought for £217M in January 2007, and now have a £236M debt – which the Royal Bank of Scotland have ordered to be reduced by £100 this summer.

There have been suggestions that the owners are believed to want a staggering £500M for the club – over double what they paid.  Their statement even suggests that he have made huge strides forward at the club.

“Owning Liverpool Football Club over these past three years has been a rewarding and exciting experience for us and our families.

“Having grown the club this far we have now decided together to look to sell the club to owners committed to take the club through its next level of growth and development.

“We are delighted that Martin Broughton has agreed to take the position of chairman, working alongside the club’s excellent senior management team.

“Martin is a distinguished business leader of excellent judgment and with a great reputation. He is a genuine football supporter and will seek to oversee the sales process in the best interests of the club and its supporters.”

The new Liverpool chairman, an admitted Chelsea fan, said:

“I am excited and honoured to be taking up this position. Liverpool is a great club with a fantastic history.

“I will run this sale process in the right way, for the benefit of the club and its fans.

“Liverpool is one of the world’s greatest clubs and my aim is to try and ensure that we find new owners who are able to build on the club’s recent improved financial performance in order to help deliver sporting success.”

Is this the 50th birthday present Rafa wanted, or will it intensify speculation that he will go to Juventus to help them spend their £70M transfer war chest.

Uncertain times ahead for Liverpool fans.

  1. yankie scum out,,,, get them out and get this great club up and at em again!!!!

    come on liverpool


  2. Still struggling to figure out what progress the American’s are talking about!!?.It’s good news that they’ve decided to sell but we still need wealthy owners to takeover then sack Rafa replacing him with my preferred choice,Mourinho.

    I’m also feeling very uncomfortable with a Chelsea season ticket holder as our chairman.Everything is up in the air so i don’t see why we should be celebrating just yet.


  4. ….such unethical men who belong more in the banking system than running a football club.
    I really hope that someone comes in any pays the stupid amount they want and then at the very least we can forget these idiots forever …….AMERICAN SCUM OUT !!!

  5. STUPID, FOOLISH, RECKLESS AND ARROGENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO RITE BEING IN BUISNES AT ALL…. We trusted them with the most precious of dynasties and they have acted like the most corrupt fowl idiots in the world.

    How dare they say that they did anything with this club other than try to destroy something that has been around longer than they have had money to wipe their stupid arses with. The appointment of a chelsea fan as our bored custodian is laughable ( i just hope the man is professional and dose’nt allow personal feelings into the frame)

    Anywhere we have got since they have taken over is down to the players and management team and not those pretentious idiots. Credit must go to raffa whatever his mistakes for putting up with …….

  6. Nice to hear that they have ” grown the club this far” – they might have thought to employ someone with a more
    reasonable command of the language !
    I suppose we can expect more poppycock comments from these two before the resolution of this conflict….

  7. Madness, the price they are asking.

    That aside, I hope our new chairman is sincere in his promises to find new owners who want the best for “club and fans”.

    I hope he doesn’t mind me taking a sceptical stance right now given the seemingly endless tide of lies and deceit we have sadly become accustomed to over the last few years.

    Words, as we know all too well, are cheap. I just hope his actions will follow in this same positive manner.
