The LFC Supporters’ Network has been formed in light of the current situation involving the ownership of the club.
They say on their website, “Recent developments at Liverpool Football Club have been both concerning and confusing to many supporters. There have been a great many contradictory stories about the present and future of the football club and the statements made and interviews given by those who are custodians of that present and future haven’t really managed to make the situation any clearer.”
They promised they would be issuing a short survey, and that’s now been posted up on a number of Liverpool FC website’s forums. Our own site doesn’t currently have a forum, but we’re sure most of our readers will be a member of at least one of the following sites:
Visit the site you use most, log in and vote in the various polls.
Questions being asked are:
Who do you think most has the best interests of the football club at heart? Tom Hicks/George Gillett or Rafael Benitez
Do you trust Tom Hicks and George Gillett? Yes/No
If Tom Hicks and George Gillett continue to behave in the manner they have since taking ownership of the football club would you seriously consider reducing your financial commitment to the football club (i.e. not buying tickets, merchandise, not subscribing to the e-season ticket)? Yes/No
The polls will close around Tuesday lunchtime.
It’s important that you use your vote on this. There’s a good chance that the results will be picked up by the media, who have been made aware of it.
The use of the media to fight this battle between owners, managers, supporters and potential owners is not “the Liverpool way”, as so many Reds have pointed out, but it’s unlikely to be resolved now without the use of the media. The sooner the future is resolved, the sooner we can get back to the old ways – hopefully – and keep private what should be kept private.
