..what will YOU do NOW?
We have several million registered “Lfc Fans” in the World, a “promising or gallant performance” @ swansea (0-0) and spurs (2-1 loss) cant disguise the declining mentality, & that, in a league without a dominant club, we are less than “also rans” below average, (12th!) having won only 3 of our 14 league games and it was our 7th defeat, this “form” (& attitude) helped get Hodgson sacked..
According to the “Wall street journal” “Infestor” Henry is in deep financial trouble, with his empire losing approaching 2 billion dollars in recent years..
OUR claim (at the time Broughton & Purslow were "spinning" 2 years ago) that it was a MISTAKE to allow NESV & FSG into our club, seems to be justified and “grapevine” information that a new year liquidation of his corporations is likely to be confirmed.
So WHY haven't “Lfc Fans” worldwide realised that the global REdS Supporters initiative to take over OUR CLUB, or at least gain an equal shareholding, been supported until recently?
… Rafa and Kenny were honest and “correctly” challenged the (sky) media , Fergie, the FA, and defended the rights of OUR CLUB ; players & supporters (holy trinity)… but the media and of course the “Infestors” (previously Hicks & Gillet and currently Henry & Werner ( F S G ) .. want to “butter up “ the media ..(manipulated by business "sponsors")
..young fans & the native “fannies” believe virtually every TV pundit and media release and swallow the propaganda that F S G churn out via the official website (whilst F S G raise cash via new kits & advance ticket sales .. to cover up their failure to invest in LFC , whilst sucking cash into their activities abroad?)
(and it takes “awareness” to see the marketing ploy to play our RedS in the new kits instead of our RED shirts @ Norwich (yellow/blue) & Tottenham (white)…?)
Henry & Werner; caused the FOURTH managerial change in 3 years and the appointment of “Buck” (B. Rodgers) casts a HUGE shadow over Brendan. F S G know “FA” about football so why should BR (or Hodgson) be accepted, when he has no credentials for a club of our size, history & expectations??
NESV/FSG used Anfield & Melwood to secure bank credit, failed to honour the last hillsborough memorial, insulted Rafa & Kenny (breaking his contract & Dalglish’s heart, by failing to retain our TRUE LEGEND in at least a Director’s role; and introduced by the same broker as G & H focus purely on the “franchise” to prop up thei r ailing commercial deals with dubious “sponsors” (Standards corrupted?)
Continue to pray for a financial miracle or yet another “financial white (black?) Knight" ?
-boycott the official shop?
-protest at the stadoum, before or after matches?
- Wear the “We are the CLUB” t-shirts?
- participate in “we came NOT to PAY” poster campaign?
- and Join the initiative for True RedS Supporters ownership?
The future of y-OUR club is in y-OUR hands,.?

..yes it all sounds a bit “007” but if you are familiar with the DIGITAL COMPANY (WHO BOUGHT KICKAPPS) IN ATLANTA USA & the scandal of ED IF JEN CHANG (SACKED by FSG@Lfc NOW FOR FAMILY REASONS NOT FOR THREATENING BLOGGERS )
------“John W. Henry & Co. - A large investment firm responsible for much of the Liverpool owner's fortune, is to cease a major part of its operations, writes the Wall Street Journal.
The firm sent e-mails to clients detailing it would no longer be managing their money as of December 31 2012.
1) : IN RESPONSE TO A DISCUSSION BY SOME KOPITES ABOUT SHANKS AND SOCIALISM....AND THE DEMONISATION OF SOCIALISM BY THE CORPOROT (CORPO-RAT) (CORPORATE) MAINSTREAM MEDIA: The so-called democratic choices in most major industrialized countries - so-called capitalist democracies, (and probably most countries anyway), are puppet regimes sponsored by the corporate giants and banking elites, or sponsored by puppet regimes from major countries which are sponsored by corporate elites.... That is the paradigm of the modern world... - THE MATRIX THAT HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED - that is how it is. Far from being hopeless, if you take this knowledge on board, and see the world for how it truly is, then and only then can positive change be made....and that must be a source of hope. If the people remain convinced that the illusion of democracy and freedom that currently holds sway is real...it is then that there is no hope. Perhaps if you watch kymatica it will explain some more -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eouOXlTvcGA OR zeitgeist: http://www.youtube.com/
