Vik-end Blog 11007

007??  I have just moved to another part of Pg, (still in “Monty” for the time being)..the young lad who installed the Tv/internet connection in the room is called “Gerrard” ! ..I told him I am a spy when he asked the typical question of what I am doing..

well, at the moment I am doing this,,.my plans have changed and its a bit bleak outside so I am “happy” to write this to “all my fans” EARLY! ..well, I cant even claim my mum reads it, because she has gone from this world, and I just learnt that Joe Fagans wife (Lil) has too ,a particular week this week in my history //// my deceased ex-wife Jacqui would have celebrated our anniversary, and special events, good & bad always seemed to happen in the early part of October – the anton pillar of the S ^ S saga, and the Freiburg events as well as my marriage all those years ago, I am sorry Jacqui for being so wrapped up in my ambitions of those days that I didnt appreciate you, if its any consolation I think in many funny ways I now pay for the past decisions in these “lone ranger” days…<smile>

I have to cancel my weeknd plans to meet with “Italian REDS” (Firenze)

07 October at 13:19

as usual the “cia” or mr D(h)icks is disrupting my comms…please kindly let me know if this message sent by email was received../

ChriS>”oh amici, Nuzio , Francesco , Stefano et al…crazia ..for the formal invitation..

I have just visited the travel agents and everything is fully booked..(even if I travel via 4 cities) I am so sorry I wont be with..(unless something changes in next 24hrs)

its been (another) “one of those weeks” ..this is the first “quiet time” I have had since I got back from Lp – I have been very occupied with E.L.S.U.N union network / member / group co-ordination & supporter ownership/protest issues and then monday night there was a terrific rain/storm here and the streets were like rivers, and so was my living room!!!!

.. and I have not slept much since then , trying to stop water spreading protecting my belongings (especially my personal collection of souvenits ; Lfc match programmes going back to 1960’s when i stared supporting as a boy on the old Kop..In between I asked for confirmation of the invitation and I suppose I was too busy to chase it, and when the hotel said they were full, I put the matter behind me, I have just had to give up my accomodation and move to another apartment here..long story, but I really enjoyed meeting your young members and hope I can join another meeting (even though our union members “boycott official Lfc events” …! ,<smile> )

PLEASE make sure to be so kind to invite me again, maybe if possible with some weeks warning..so I can “pre-plan” and try to avoid disaters too <smile> I wish you all a very succesful & enjoyable weekend,

salute!
take care, with hope in y-our hearts”

monday…

“ironic night..I have been comparing the local & global situation to the “titanic” and promoting my ideas of Life(Live-R)boats ..and so a rain storm flooded my living room <smile> c’est la via, c’est la guerre..😉

***********************

………………….As you can see from my email & FB “thoughts” above, its already been a stormy week, and tonight (thursday -007) I am hoping for a quiet & restful nights sleep..
I had to move & to stay away from the rooms in Toloshi yesterday, the carpet was still wet and my clothes & belongings damp, its unhealthy to sleep there and I am concerned that another bought of rain would flood if I am not there, some of my (Lfc match programmes etc) souvenirs are more than 40 years old, and can be easy damaged by damp or condensation, so i have had to find alternative accomodation temporarily.
I therefore had to reject the suggestion to stay until January and in reply have returned the house key so that all your necessary renovations and repairs can proceed – and the owner can choose to rent to the “rich” construction company – I wished luck with them as I predict a financial “meltdown” which will hurt bankers and construction..generally.
we shall see, in the meantime , with difficulty , I have moved most of my things, the few things remaining can be placed with neighbour and I will contact him to pick them up another time.
I do not know how long I stay, or if i move soon to beograd or N.Sad, but I will return to Montenegro again.
I told the owners weeks ago of the flooding problems, and also last weekend, but at the time of writing 5 days have gone by and there is no protection from another flood, you will see inside there is damp still today, this and the absence of Tv/Internet and a risk to health & damage to my personal belongings means there are too many reasons to cause me to leave the accomodation for the forseeable future.
I expected at least an apology for the inconvenience & damages caused to me, but I wish to retain friendly contact and the damages are not so important to distract me from my “Global Reds” obligations..

“SoS” (Liverpool) react to “breaking news”

(http://www.spiritofshankly.com/news/Spirit-of-Shankly-_-Ownership-Developments.html)

first the “pretending Chairman ; Chelskis Broughton does a “Q & A” ..


(CS> I commented at the time that it looks as if the “chairman” has taken over Lfc, he may as well have done, as the “chelski-chappy” has been acting like “king of the castle” all summer)

“broughton  take over ….Q & A”! …

Liverpool FC Chairman Martin Broughton has spoken about why he believes New England Sports Ventures are the perfect fit for LFC and why he’s confident the sale decision could be completed by close of business next week.

In an exclusive interview with LFC TV, Broughton also thanked fans for their patience during the sales process and outlined the potential new owner’s plans for the club.

Watch the interview now FREE by clicking on the image or read the full transcript below

Martin, it’s been quite a dramatic 24 hours in terms of the sales process. Can you explain exactly what the situation is right now?

It certainly has been dramatic. The latest position is that we have a sale agreement in place, we’ve agreed the sale to New England Sports Ventures, that sale is subject to a number of conditions like Premier League approval and other normal conditions. The specific additional condition is that it’s subject to confirmation that the Board acted validly in drawing up the sale documents.

Last night fans read a statement on the official website claiming that the owners had sought to remove Christian Purslow and Ian Ayre from the Board. What was the reasoning behind this and were the owners successful?

The court will ultimately decide whether the owners were successful. The reasoning behind it was that the owners felt we were reviewing two bids which they considered undervalued the club and therefore they wished to remove Christian and Ian and replace them with Mack Hicks, who is Tom’s son, and Lori McCutcheon, who also works with him.

We don’t think it was valid to do it. Essentially when I took the role they gave a couple of written undertakings to Royal Bank of Scotland. Those written undertakings included that I was the only person entitled to change the board and that was written into the articles of the covenants, and also that they would take no action to frustrate any reasonable sale. And I think they flagrantly abused both of those written undertakings.

You announced on Tuesday night that the club received two excellent offers. Why, in your opinion, is New England Sports Ventures the right new owner for Liverpool Football Club?

I think both of them would have been excellent new owners. New England have a lot of experience in developing, investing in and taking Boston Red Sox – as the closest parallel – from being a club with a wonderful history, a wonderful tradition that had lost the winning way, and bringing it back to being a winner. Their commitment to winning is what it’s all about there and they’ve extended it from Boston Red Sox to Nascar and other things, but Red Sox is the main one.

I have been meeting them now for several weeks in Boston, in Liverpool, in London, and I feel they are totally committed to supporting and getting the winning mentality back into the team.

Is their winning mentality the thing which has impressed you most about them during this period?

Yes. Their commitment is to winning on the pitch and that helps you win off the pitch too. The two are mutually reinforcing.

Fans have already got lots of questions, with three of the main ones being:

a) Will the debt burden be removed completely?

To all intents and purposes, yes. All of the acquisition debt that was involved in the current owners acquisition will be removed completely. We’ll still have what we call normal working capital debt and there’s a facility there for the new stadium which will remain in place, but to all intents and purposes all the major debt that has been causing our problem has been paid off.

b) Have the proposed new owners committed to investing in the playing squad?

Yes. They don’t want any hostages to fortune, very sensibly, so they’re not going to make any comments about how much or anything like that. But this goes back to the winning mentality. I think the demonstration is: let’s look at what they have done at Boston, what they said in Boston, what they have done in terms of investing in players – and I think you get a high degree of confidence of their willingness to do that.

c) Is there a commitment from them to progress the new stadium project?

Yes, there’s definitely a commitment to invest in a stadium and we will finish up with a 60,000+ seater stadium. Where they haven’t finalised their view is whether that should be the new stadium or whether there are still opportunities to build at Anfield itself. They have done both. The people involved have built the new stadium at Baltimore Orioles, for example, and at Fenway Park they looked at the two options and decided that actually redevelopment with all of the tradition was better than a new stadium. So they have done both, they are committed to looking at both very professionally and seeing which is the best option, but there will be stadium development.

Just to clarify, what needs to happen now for the sale to be finalised?

The key thing is the court case. We need to go to the court to get a declaratory judgement, which is for the court to declare that we did act validly in completing the sale agreement, and then the buyers can complete the sale. We have to get Premier League approval and I’m certain that’s not going to be an issue. There are one or two minor things like that but the key issue is the court, which should meet I would think next week sometime. That is the most likely time, in short order.

Can the owners block the sale of LFC to New England Sports Ventures?

Well, we have to win the court case. So effectively yes, if they win the court case they can block the sale. But then we may have one or two other thoughts in mind as well.

Could the sale process be dragged through the courts for months before a resolution is reached?

No, I don’t think so. We should get a declaratory judgement I would have thought probably by the end of next week, in short order. There is an appeal process but that is also very fast.

How confident are you that Liverpool Football Club will soon be officially under new ownership?

I am confident. I wouldn’t have taken the Board through that process yesterday if I hadn’t been confident. I wouldn’t have exposed everybody to that risk if I hadn’t been confident, but you can never be certain. These things are legal judgements. We have been properly advised and I am confident.

Looking back, how thorough has the process been to identify the best new owners for the Club and how pleased are you with the final outcome?

Ideally one would have had buyers who were not only the best buyers but also satisfied the owners. That’s what we were looking for and we haven’t managed to do that second piece of it. Has it been exhaustive? Absolutely. We have, first of all through BarCap, contacted every plausible buyer. The media coverage has meant that you would have to be living on Planet Zog not to know that Liverpool was for sale and so if you had any interest in it you had the opportunity. We’ve talked to lots of potential people. At the end of the day, with the deadline for debt repayment looming we had two bidders, both very viable bidders. I think they were competing, there was competitive tension there and I think that demonstrates that we have the market price.

Finally Martin, what is your message to the Liverpool fans?

Keep the faith. We said we would deliver the best buyers for the club and I think we have delivered exactly that. I know they’ve been frustrated by not getting a running commentary and I know a fan wants to know what’s going on. I thank them for their patience because I do believe the only way you really get these things done is out of the media glare and it’s difficult to do it out of the media glare, but we’ve found the right owners. I thank them for their patience, their support, keep the faith, this is going to work. They’re with us.

—————————–

The Liverpool Supporters’ Union, Spirit of Shankly have noted the
developments overnight at Liverpool Football Club. Leaving aside the
embarrassment of our Club’s ownership and senior management playing
out open warfare in public, supporters will be encouraged to see the
ownership of Hicks and Gillett possibly coming to an end.
However, we have been here before. In 2007. The identity and
nationality of any owners of Liverpool Football Club is irrelevant.
How they act as custodians is the most important thing and we have
seen previously that initial announcements and promises made by new
owners and the checks and due diligence made by those entrusted with
that role on our behalf have all been left wanting. This must not
happen again.

The supporters are not as naive as they were in 2007. For one, Spirit
of Shankly is a vibrant and demanding representative organisation of
its members and we will expect to see full details of how any purchase
is to be financed and what difference any new owners will make in
terms of recognising how supporters see the future of the Club.
It is disappointing that none of the potential purchase groups are yet
to engage with Spirit of Shankly and we would expect that to happen
now before any sale is concluded so the issues most closely concerning
supporters can be discussed. The supporters’ concerns are how they
propose to purchase the Club, how their business model is different to
the current owners, their measurable ambitions for the Club, the
investment they intend to make on the playing side, what their stadium
solution is likely to be and also their attitude in relation to
allowing supporters to invest and be represented within the Club.

Hicks and Gillett have not yet gone, and any excitement concerning new
owners will be measured by how they recognise the current atmosphere
and attitudes of supporters. New owners are not walking into a Club of
supporters with open arms, there will be one gently outstretched hand
of welcome while the other hand contains a list of questions that will
need honest and open answers before any welcome becomes more warm.

New owners will have seen the strength of feeling and the actions
taken by thousands upon thousands of supporters to get rid of the
current owners. That strength needs to be respected and acknowledged,
not through press conferences, photo opportunities and false promises
– it needs to be acknowledged by any new owners making a sincere and
permanent pact with the supporters that sees supporters inside the
Club and integral to it, not seen as consumers, stakeholders or
customers because this is Liverpool Football Club, our Club.

And finally, don’t forget, Tom and George You’re Still Not, and never
will be, Welcome Here.

CS>anyway we are going ahead with E.L>S>U>N & the Global REDS initiative no matter who claims to be “owners” of OUR CLUB!

=====================================================================================================

Snips & Extracts from Fb & Lfc fans Forums>

WOOLTONIAN>the “BEST DEAL” for Liverpool was to let STEVE MORGAN buy the club ( A Garston Boy, born and bred).
But certain parties who will remain nameless (and there were a few), suggested his idea of Floating the club on the stock exchange might lead to all and sundry being able to purchse shares (Including fans obviously).  At the time, no such groups such as there are now suggesting we the fans should own the club existed.
First on the list was to court Liverpool, was Kraft. Then came along Hicks & Gillette.
Making one mistake is acceptable. Making two mistakes is foolish.  BUT contemplating making a THIRD mistake is DOWNRIGHT FUCKIN STUPIDITY !
If we’re going to continue to jump from one fire into another,It’s all very well having Supporters Groups, and Groups that will fight for a better future, but only if they achieve the goals they originally set when starting up.

We are a Proud City with a history of direct action ie strikes for better conditions and a better future for others who follow in our footsteps.
Ask Anyone who worked in Fords, Dunlop, British Leyland. DOCKERS and others.YOU STAY OUT OR CONTINUE ACTION UNTIL YOU SUCCEED !!

Cracking Left Foot>I don’t trust anyone to do the right thing for the club any more.

eoa106>New owners, Purslow & Broughton out and THE return of a great manager: IN RAFA WE TRUST!

Chivasino>Best supporters in the world? You better believe it. F*ck off Hicks you c*nt!

scared_person>Agree that fan ownership has got to be the long term aim and something we should continue
to work towards.we dont need to own the club to be influential
MK>”If ever a club reflected what made football the biggest sport in the country, it was Liverpool with its ground set in the bosom of the labouring working class being led by a man-of-the-people idealist in Bill Shankly.”

JF>But does running American Sports franchises qualify you for running English football clubs? How do you know that you have the people who are running the football side right? How many British businessmen are running American Baseball teams?

Koplass>are people really this willing to accept new owners that they know nothing about (and who know nothing about football) after the three years of hell we’ve just been through?

RRD>Don’t let your guard down people.

Koplass>Once Moores sold the family silver we were headed for the iceberg.
We hit it some time ago, and the club is now sinking faster than we thought it could.
A lifeboat has appeared in the shape of this group who have offered £300million.

A>Do some people just never learn?

Garstonette> I don’t care who the owners are, what is important is who the NEXT owners are. If it’s anyone other than us, it could be disastrous. Get our foot in the door while the new owner attempts to appease the masses and slowly but surely get all of it.

“The owners are only there to write the cheques”B

B> i for one am totally shocked by the rate at whcih supporters are bending over and spreading their cheeks for more f*cking yanks to come in and rape our club.

Quote from: jagroop on Today at 01:15:01 PM

Fellow LFC Fans, although nobody can 100% say what would happen in an eventual court case but can only state what is most likely with the facts.

Apologies to fellow fans who already know the workings of company legislation, but for those who need more info hopefully this will help.
Great information,  cheers jagroop
When forming a company the voting rights attached to shareholders and board members is written in the articles (rules) of the company which are called Table A. The standard version of these means that share holders have to ratify (agree) to the appointment of a shareholder. Any major decision requires board approvement and the chariman will have the deciding vote in the event of deadlock.

The two owners were therefore always able to block any potential sales etc. Also if one shareholder wants to sell then the other shareholder has right to first refusal on those shares.

When RBS decided to refinance they obviously wanted to ensure that the refinance on the condition that a sale will be actively pursued. They did not want the vetos (blocking power) that the shareholders had as a result of Table A conditions attached to their rights. The condition at that point was that LFC had to have a change of boardroom roles with an independent chairman who was the only one with the right to then make any reasonable changes to the board. MB was brought in and as a result to make this stick there had to be additions made to Table A conditions in which the rights of the shares was removed and thus leaving just one vote per board member with the casting vote with the chairman in the even of deadlock.

As MB has revealed the owners also made written undertakings. For those who have had legal dealing you will know a written undertaking is something the MUST be adhered to. An example is like when somebody is promising their lender that they will give certain information or funds by a certain date in a certain day. If they make a written undertaking and it has been drafted correctly and executed correctly then the person cannot go against that written undertaking without the express written permission from who they made the undertaking to. In this case if RBS waived the conditions made in the written undertaking then H&G would be successful in this challenge, if RBS do not waive the conditions within the written undertaking then H&G will not be successful. They will try to argue that by selling at the ‘low price’ it is not in the interest of the shareholders or the company as it devalues the club which is detrimental to the owners and the club.

They will argue the board have not discharged their duty in looking out for the owners and the club. They will try to argue that if refinancing took place with collateral against assets of the club that would allow the RBS deadline to be met and allow the club to function in other areas while also meeting their valuation of the club.

They will therefore say that due to not pursuing this line then CP and IA were rightly sacked for gross misconduct. Their whole argument will hinge on stating that the board have not acted correctly by blocking a refinance based on club assets.

Personally I do not think the argument is very strong although if you get the wrong judge on the wrong mood then the case could go against us as fans.

Also quickly about the new owners their significant squad investment will only happen in January as the new UEFA rules will come in force in summer which will put us in a strong position as all expenditure is linked to income. We are very profitable without the debt. Also this profit is all without ticket sales from a larger capacity stadium. If we are guaranteed a stadium of 60000+ then we are in a very strong position in terms of squad investment.

Sorry to all of you for the length in writing this piece and also if it sounds patronising in anyway or has caused offense.  I just wanted to give the correct technical advice as I am legally trained in Corporate Law.

I hope this helped.

TR>I’ll wait with partying till the ink has dried on the contract…

I have to say Broughton is in “turbo drive”

CS>right now, wish he would “Turbo drive” off the nearest cliff, with G & H, Purslow & woy in the backs seats!

AH>    LOVING THIS:

“We don’t think it was valid to do it. Essentially when I took the role they gave a couple of written undertakings to Royal Bank of Scotland.
Those written undertakings included that I was the only person entitled to change the board and that was written into the articles of the covenants,

Finding a new owner/finance was their remit.They are paid to do this.Selling Liverpool was never going to be difficult.
The board-bashing stems from their abject footballing decisions.For that they can never be forgiven.Sure the 2 cowboys set us back big time but the footballing decisions have been equally damaging.Six points in 7 games is their doing.
You would shudder as to how these 2 executives came to be directors.I don’t have a problem with their business acumen but to get involved in football matters was criminal.If anyone needs a look in the mirror- it is them.No patting on the back if the deal is a good one.
I could take it a step further  and argue if they really had the fans’ interest at heart-why has there been no discussion of fan ownership participaton.I know it is a lofty ideal but they could have made themselves heroes.

And now a message from the National Apple Institute; .,,,,,,,,,,…….  F*CK PEARS!

Re: Broughton Takeover Q&A – From .TV

he seems very confident the deal will go through, then again I supposed he has to.
it’s more of a done deal than I thought it was when I logged off last night anyway.

I thought he looked very nervous in that interview, especially when the fans were mentioned, dunno if that’s a good sign or not.

As they so often ask in the States

You can take the mask off now, Broughton.

Lfc office “spinning” the players too..


LFCtv > Jamie Carragher believes a takeover by New England Sports Ventures would be great news for Liverpool fans.

The club’s Board have agreed the sale of the club subject to Premier League approval, resolution of a dispute concerning Board membership and other matters.

And Carragher told Liverpoolfc.tv: “Everyone knows it’ll be a good thing for the club.

“Hopefully it will be sorted sooner rather than later and we can start looking forward on the pitch and start improving results, which is what we need to do.”


http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/latest-news/nesv-our-objective-for-lfc

OFFICIAL statement (i prefer the UNofficial ones!)

New England Sports Ventures (“NESV”) can confirm that their bid for Liverpool FC has been selected by the Club’s Board of Directors and agreement has been reached with the Board to purchase the Club.

NESV wishes to extend its appreciation to the Board for their diligence and their efforts on behalf of Liverpool FC and its supporters.

NESV wants to create a long-term financially solid foundation for Liverpool FC and is dedicated to ensuring that the Club has the resources to build for the future, including the removal of all acquisition debt. Our objective is to stabilise the Club and ultimately return Liverpool FC to its rightful place in English and European football, successfully competing for and winning trophies.

Since 2001, New England Sports Ventures has made successful investments in sports and entertainment properties. Our portfolio of companies, including the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park, New England Sports Network, Fenway Sports Group and Roush Fenway Racing, are all committed to one common goal: winning. NESV wants to help bring back the culture of winning to Liverpool FC.

We have a proven track record, shown clearly with the Boston Red Sox. The team has won two World Series Championships over the past six years. We will bring the same kind of openness, passion, dedication and professionalism to Liverpool FC.

We are hopeful with regard to the pending legal and English Premier League procedures now underway; however, in light of these issues, we will respectfully refrain from comment or further actions at this time.
