Whoever is a Liverpool fan should be happy. The Red Sox are almost perfectly run, and the owners want to win, and will do almost anything to win.

Liverpool had no debt in 2005...not one penny and now we are saddled with 250 million of it...sorry if i'm sceptical!

There's yet to be a yank that did a good job in the Premier League. No offense but they're retarded business men that don't have a clue about how a football club is run. Their arrogance and greed makes them have a go at it, to which they fail miserably.

No light at the end of the tunnel for Pool...their dumb fans want Daglish in next as manager who will only add to their misery :rofl: Why the fuck they haven't went for Martin O'Neil amazes me :sad:

High couty opts in favour of RBS.

Honestly is a joke. Pompey were hung out to dry because of debts and Pool owe more money than most, cant pay the fucking thing and are being allowed carry on as normal, they should be docked points and transfer embargoed. But that wont happen to pool old liverpool. it was good enough for pompey.

I hope Hcks fights it to the end and pool end up in administrationl, they would desvere nothing better.

Man Utd do it, Liverpool do it, Pompey did it, and I have no doubt a lot of other premiership teams are doing it. It needs to stop because it's ruining football. The FA need to step in and make sure sides are running within their means, or sanctions need to be imposed.

Very close too mate, definitely the best run big club at least. Football just needs a total overhaul from the grass roots up, as teams that produce and give youngsters a chance are getting raped by these premier league teams, as they just open their cheque book if players are any good, yet at the same time not producing youngsters of their own. It's ruining football:sad:

They used to have an academy to be proud of but not so much anymore, they'd rather buy a portuguese player than nurture british/irish talent.:sad:

this is true, but it is also true for alot of english clubs. In a few years, alot of english clubs will be on the bread line and youth acadamys will once again be a priority

A Texas court has granted a temporary restraining order stopping the sale of Liverpool Football Club, owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have claimed.

It comes hours after the American pair saw their challenge against the club's sale thrown out by the High Court.

Hicks and Gillett issued a statement as the Liverpool board met to ratify the sale to New England Sports Ventures.

The American duo described the proposed £300m sale as "an epic swindle" and are seeking more than £1bn in damages.

Hicks claims the injunction prevents Liverpool executing the sale of the club to NESV, with a hearing date of 25 October set.

The legal action in Texas - signed by Judge Jim Jordan of the 160th District Court in Dallas - is "part of a lawsuit filed against Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Martin Broughton, Christian Purslow, Ian Ayre, NESV and Philip Nash" read a statement.

"The lawsuit also seeks temporary and permanent injunctions, and damages totalling approximately $1.6 billion (more than £1 billion)."
