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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
