I am a MASSIVE LFC supporter from America and loathe what Hicks and Gillett
did to the club, but the bit about taking the club back from the Americans
and the Americans, as if we all plotted against the club, is bollocks.
Those two ‘businessmen’ represent Americans as a whole about as much as
Justin Bieber represents all Canadians or Piers Morgan represents all
Brits. It’s shite.
I’m so glad that reign of tyranny is over and pray the success under FSG
YNWA bitches, Liverpool is BACK!!
Four words………You’ll Never Walk Alone
I started crying at the Hillsbrough bit. My uncle was one of the 96. JFT96
Very good documentary…I am a big American fab of Liverpool, one reason
being my Dad was stationed outside of Liverpool with the USAF as an
airplane mechanic during WWII…Another reason being the Beatles, and the
Mersey Sound phenomena, and the joy it gave America. Watching this film,
one can understand the anger behind the OWS movement in America. In any
case, a lot of this corruption has been exposed in America, and the current
Fenway Sports Group ownership cannot pull the same shite.
Very interesting documentary but I found the constant cartoons and short
film clips to be somewhat distracting. This is a very important issue, and
one that should be recognised by ALL football supporters. This is the way
that big business and the Banks work. It is a way of making YOU responsible
for somebody else’s loan. The banks and the business men profit at YOU and
YOUR CLUBS expense. The sooner all Football Clubs are owned by their own
supporters the safer they will be.
Thats why I support FC United
Ill never understand why the people don’t just unite and go from palace to
mansion in Surrey and The Hampton’s murdering these corrupt bastards until
they think “Shit we best stop fucking over these people or we’ll be next.”
I ALL OF A SUDDEN FEEL PROUD TO BE WORKING CLASS!!!
I can only assume that the reference is to that of the Potemkin Mutiny of
1905. The crew of this battleship refused to eat the maggot strewn rotten
meat that was delivered to the ship whilst at port on the Black Sea. The
second-in-command threatened to shoot crew members, and summoned the ships
guards as well as a tarpaulin to protect the ships decks from any blood in
an attempt to blame the crew. The crew mutinied and flew a red-flag from
the mast of the ship.
Shankly and Rogers anyone see what im seeing??
I think we shouldn’t compare him with Shankly coz he is irreplaceable.
Hi guys, just to follow up from the last message, as you can see from our
youtube page I am also a filmmaker and would like to get intouch with Joe
Hood who did the music. Thanks guys. YNWA
What does Potemkin have to do with anything in England? He was a Russian
military man, and there is a world famous set of stairs in Odessa, Ukraine
called Potemkin Stairs. So, what does that have to do with Liverpool?
Do ‘better teams’ get completely outclassed for 114 minutes out of 120, and
then win the shoot out lottery? At least United can admit we were below par
in 1999’s final
BTW, Liverpool won the Champions League in 2005 because THEY WERE THE
BETTER TEAM…”To those who endure until the end goes the prize”.”.
I think Rodgers will in 10/20 years time be talked about with the likes of
Shankly, Paisley, Dalglish and Benitez
roger will strike next season………i believe it
I am a Chelsea fan, but I am mad as hell to see things turn out like this
for any sports team, regardless if it’s Liverpool F.C.!
Was written for the film
We had a lucky escape with the way things turned out. Otherwise we might’ve
still had the debts hanging over us!
