NESV To Sue Liverpool If Buy-out Fails

By on October 13, 2010

Friends of Liverpool

It emerged last night that John W Henry will demand tens of millions of pounds if the deal is not rubber-stamped by the Liverpool board. NESV insisted that it would defend its deal with the club and could sue for “tens of millions in damages” should it collapse through administration, the board deciding to sell to another bidder, or Hicks and Gillette being granted an injunction to prevent the sale.

“These could result in very substantial damages running into tens of millions of pounds,” said David Chivers QC, acting for NESV.

Hardly the sort of utterances we need to hear from our possible new owners, looking to sue the club before they even get to own it. It casts John Henry’s takeover in a bad light before they even begin to run our club. Let us hope that they are not another hard-balled owner of Liverpool FC who are out to make a fast buck on our club.
In any event, it is believed that the Liverpool board sanctioned the approval of their bid last week and that contracts may have been signed with NESV for the sale of the club. Things are changing minute by minute so I really don’t know whats going to happen next.

Nice to see RBS respond to our email campaigns to get rid of Hicks & Gillette.

    That rings my alarm bells this is such a worrying time for us reds with the court case and them two idiots and now henry’s alledged lawyers are spouting about sueing liverpool fc surley it should be broughton ayre and purslow it is them that has agreed to sell the club to J.W.Henry and NESV . I said this in an earlier post that i seems to me they want to get the club of there hands as quick as possible just like the rick parry incident we do not no all the facts on who wanted to buy the club and we did not wait till the deadline had run out because i believe some big hitters would of come in with bids at the right price for them . Does this say everything about our new owners in waiting that its going to be like the last two and take lfc to the cleaners

    I think NESV is just another Gillet & Hick. If what i read is true. Then it is better for Liverpool to switch the interest in Asian invester rather than another American.

    Fuck all yanks off……..lying greedy gobshites. DON’T SELL TO NESV…………..it’ll be a mess. Hope G&H win their case, we hit administration and someone else comes in and buys us up. Looking forward to the Championship next season……there’s a few grounds I haven’t been to yet in there. Boss lar.

    I have believed all along that Hicks would never sell! As for new owners,we are learning that they are all just the same! I blogged last week that it does’n’ matter who takes control; they will bleed everything from LFC! LFC should b taken over by the likes of ‘STEVE MORGAN’ in conjunction with the ‘FAN-BASE’ . As for the ‘SINGAPOREAN’ , he has also threatened to ‘sue’ LFC over the way the sale is being conducted!!! ‘BRING BACK STEVE MORGAN’

    Get with it you lot!

    This is a threat to any potentiel new bidders that if they push up the price they’ll have to pay the extra NESV will have to pay!

    Nothing wrong with that in my book!

    As for going with the billionaire singaporean!!!! We went with Hicks and Gillette in the same manor! Look where that got us!
