I’ve decided to become a Spirit Of Shankly evangelist.
For those of you familiar with my previous posts on the subject, I’ll spare you the full speech but simply say that this is important. It’s important irrespective of who you support.
It’s Liverpool now, we’ve seen what happened to Portsmouth …but who’s next? And believe me, if this type of nonsense isn’t checked soon, there will be a ‘next’.
So what’s with the headline? You said a shirt for £20. Here it is…
This shirt is NOT a fashion statement It’s a visible protest at the way YOUR club is being managed at board level. It’s also a great way of building awareness among less well educated reds – we hope it will help to encourage some of our ‘fans’ along the way to becoming true supporters.
By buying and wearing this shirt you will be playing your part.
The shirt is black – because we’re in mourning for OUR club.
Why buy it? It’s a really simple one this, but some, still don’t get it… Your club is being systematically destroyed by owners that don’t care for it or for you. There are numerous examples of their disregard for us and their assumption that we will continue to buy official merchandise whilst they profit by loading OUR club with THEIR debt is unacceptable.
Just think about the numbers for a minute: Group debts of £473M, £85M – Interest repayments made by LFC since the Americans took control Annual losses of £55M Wasted money: £51M spent on plans for a new stadium – remember “a spade in the ground within 60 days” – still waiting?
That all boils down to £110k in interest paid out – EACH AND EVERY DAY – thanks to the crippling debts that the club has been saddled with. These things matter because they effect every past of the club from the price of tickets and merchandise to the type of players we can attract. So, if there are reds out there that don’t know these facts, then we need to educate them.
Wear the shirt – spread the word.
