The campaign to oust Tom Hicks and George Gillett from their positions as co-owners of Liverpool FC continues to gain momentum.
RBS have a decision to make next month: extend the finance or go with the Red majority and take the club out of its owners’ hands.
But that decision will be taken out of the bank’s hands if Tom and George can somehow, from somewhere, find a backer that allows them to refinance and pay RBS off.
So at the same time as campaigning to make sure RBS know what their decision must be, Liverpool supporters are campaigning and working to make sure nobody else comes along, takes pity, and takes the decision away from RBS.
Liverpool fans the world over have helped to push the story under the noses of bank executives across the globe. Last week the story was placed firmly into the faces of literally thousands of US media contacts.
Email has been an important tool. Twitter and Facebook have helped push it that little bit more. Next up – YouTube.
But it’s not going to be just any old YouTube video.
Casting Director Dan Hubbard (King Kong, The Damned United, The Bourne Ultimatum and more) and Hollywood Producer & Director Mike Jefferies are both massive Liverpool supporters. And that means they’ve also had just about enough of the situation too. And they’re going to do something about it.
But, as with every part of this whole campaign, they need your help.
Are you in Liverpool this weekend? Can you be in Liverpool this weekend?
They’re making a film, they want it to go viral, they want you to star in it.
It’s not just about the famous faces they’ve approached to join in, it’s about all fans – all fans who want an end to this nightmare.
Get yourself down to the Hope Street Hotel in town this weekend.
It won’t take long – unless there’s a queue. And it’ll be a queue worth joining.
Don’t forget, there’s a game being played on Sunday, with a protest before, during and after, but if you can spare some extra time and make it to the hotel during those times it could literally be the difference between success and failure.
Success is a move towards getting our club back. Failure – forget failure. We’ll win this one – because we’re all getting together to make sure we do.
The twelfth man isn’t just the Kop for this. It’s all of us, wherever we are.
If you absolutely can’t get involved this weekend don’t worry. You’ll be needed when the movie is done. You’ll be needed to help spread the word.
But do what you can to get down.
And do what you can to spread the word.
We will get our club back.
