Boardroom slugfest at Anfield?

As Liverpool fans (at least some) begin rejoicing over the prospect of new ownership, the club's current shareholders are apparently ready to throw a spanner into the works and block the deal.

While on one hand, it would appear that Liverpool's current owners should have a say on who they sell to, the nature of their debt with RBS is such that the board, which was given the task of finding new owners by the bank, has equal amount or more power to push through a deal.

While I won't dwell too deeply on the law in Britain, I do have one question: What is it going to take for those two dipshits to realise they'll never get GBP600 million for Liverpool? For that matter GBP400 million seems way too much for a club languishing in the relegation zone!

Don't they realise that the longer they prolong this process, the lower the value of the club will be? I mean Roy Hodgson has so far demonstrated an ability to do nothing to stop the downward spiral at Anfield and it appears as though learning from one's mistakes is not one of his qualities.

To top it all off, refusing to sell the club now will tarnish the duo's image to greater lengths. As if they aren't hated enough, blocking this deal could have the potential of making Tom Hicks and George Gillette even more hated than Osama Bin Laden!

As for Hodgson, I hope he doesn't spend too much time worrying about this when he's got much bigger concerns on his table at the moment. Once you've got the Kop chanting another manager's name, you know you've got your work cut out for you.
