At This Point, It's Almost Like Tom Hicks is the Bad Guy in a Really Good British Soccer Movie
This is Anfield, devoted to all things Liverpool FC, posted today a rather lengthy laundry list of all the things Tom Hicks has done wrong, far as Reds fans are concerned, since he bought the club with George Gillett more than two years ago. The sum-up -- headlined "Hicks & Gillett love the green of the dollar more than the red of Liverpool FC" -- seeks to answer why Liverpool fans protested the twosome before the team's 2-0 victory over Manchester United last week. Bonus: here's footage from the protest, scored to The Who. It's almost as good as The Damned United, which I saw this weekend and can't recommend enough.
