Fans Vs LFC

Recommended Posts

In July I made contact with Liverpool City Council with an email that i will post shortly. After a few discussions, that shall remain confidential for the time being, I backed off to wait for further development mainly in the hope that Martin Broughton would succeed in bringing in new owners.

 

In light of the information released in the last day or two regarding Tom Hicks looking to re-finance I have decided that I can wait around no longer. I need to start to force the issue. WE NEED TO FORCE THE ISSUE. As fans we need to stand up and be counted. For the most part our lives revolve around this football club and here we are standing by while some two bit businessmen look to

asset strip us.

 

Well they can try. Under no circumstances am i going to stand by and let these people take away my club without a fight. I urge each and every one of you to take a stand too.

 

On Sunday October 3rd 2010 Liverpool Football Club host Blackpool in a Premier League game to kick off at 3pm. I would like all of our fans to join us and let this be known as 'Do Something Day'.

 

Our fans are disjointed as events to raise awareness of the owners greed by various groups and unions do not always meet with universal approval. This causes a problem as it looks like we

are not together in our aim of putting pressure on the owners of LFC and the Board to do the right thing and sell to an owner with morals. For one day we forget about questioning the actions and motives of others and take it upon ourselves to Do Something that makes a point, no matter how small, towards the owners of our great club.

 

So, with this in mind we ask that October 3rd be 'Do Something Day'. Whether you start a march, refuse to buy food or drink at half time, don't buy from the club shop when you visit the ground, send an email outlining your feelings to the club or whatever - it doesn't matter - just Do Something. Take an action, any action you want that in some small way shows how you feel towards

the club and the way it is being run.

 

The news that Tom Hicks is trying to re-finance should worry every single Liverpool fan. It should concern you that a man with no money wants to take your money in order to pay for your club. It should concern you that since both he and his business partner George Gilett came into town that they have not put any money into moving your club forward. That they have taken as much as they can - whether it be for business trips or architect drawings of a stadium that will never be built - they have not put anything into this club. Their sole aim to bleed this club dry and we need to take action before it is too late.

 

I have setup a facebook group known as fansvslfc. Please take an action and please let me know what action you take. The fear is that if Tom Hicks refinances now then he has the knowledge of how to refinance again in 6, 12, 18 months time. It will be a never ending nightmare. Let's take a stand to make it stop. October 3rd 2010. Do Something Day. Time to fight for your club.

Are talking about getting Liverpool council to exert political pressure?

Good work fella.

Empty Kop = most potent image of discontent we have at our disposal

 

How much do season ticket fans love the club?, if it's not enough to boycott home games then YOU are part of the problem.

 

My father, brother and I gave up our seats after having had them for 22 years. It's broken my ol' boys heart and made me an our kid very bitter.

 

Time for every LFC fan to buy into the pain.

 

Non attendance at Anfield, after having already paid for this years season ticket will be hard to bear, but no where near the pain levels we'll all feel if we don't now stand as one and say enough is enough.

Spot on.

 

I'd also urge anyone boycotting to go to the ground to join in with some other action, whatever they choose to do. Let the club know what you think.

i think a walk out would be perfect, I know there are safety issues with regards to exit gates opening but I am positive the stewards would have no choice but to open the exit gates

 

20 mins into the first half v Blackpool, every f***** that wants to walks out

not live

 

but we dont have time to hang on do we

there isn't time i agree i was just hoping it was on sky so it carries even more impact. forces them to talk about it at halftime, drives the news agenda etc. it'd still be powerful and a hell of a statement of course. there's the potential for fans who stay booing fans leaving or even kicking off on them. but i'd want the media briefed beforehand to expect it anyway. then it's about numbers, which need generating.

Commence Operation Anfield and 10,000 get up and walk out. That WOULD be good.

Operation Anfield Exercise? Is that 20 minutes in? Always thought it was more like 40.

It's during the first half, but when it is is irrelevant, it's what it is, a single point of time that all fans can agree on that is unambiguous. When you hear the announcement, walk out.

I like the sound of a mass walkout, at the end of the day most of what we do will result in them still getting our money. There's always going to be people buying tickets.

 

I'm a bit confused by all the different posts on here and by SOS as to actually what is going on though. I'm up for anything
