The Anfield outfit are the European champions are one of the richest clubs on the planet, with no less than 12 players earning £100,000 a week or above, yet they chose to accept money from the British tax-payer to cover 80% of the wages of some non-playing staff.
The outcry was very public, and it seems that those in the places of power have recognised the error of their ways – they have now confirmed that they will pay their workers in full themselves.
However, despite the U-turn, a number of fans are far from happy with their failure to come to this decision in the first place, and they have been scathing in their judgement. Some have even called for FSG to leave the club, whilst one supporter labelled the original decision as ‘embarrassing‘.

Good to know a sound thrashing from members of the public can have the desired effect.
Now don’t embarrass us like this ever again.

Got there in the end, however anyone with decent morality knows it was never the right decision in the first place. Questions need to be asked to those responsible.

This letter should never have been necessary.
You made a rod for us to be beaten with, as as we know lots of the media love to stick a dagger in and twist..
History should tell you we have to be above the rest.#YNWA

We’ll never forget what you tried but the main thing is you’ve came to the right decision.
