What was the tweet? Don’t do Twitter so can’t read it!
Which one?

One tweet was by Stan Collymore that said there are rumours an unknown owner is preparing to sell their club, and the other tweet said "Football administration, bloody hell"
...thanks for clarifying Sid.

It's been great to see them off but I'm still pretty worried about the 2024 CL changes, to be honest.

Souness reckons John Henry / FSG's position is untenable at Liverpool

Usual jingoistic shite. You just know sourness voted for Brexit.

Yeah a cynical money grab has been defeated by entrenched corruption and xenophobic English nationalism. Happy days!

Even our withdrawal statement is crass and lacks in class. Every other British Club has come out with something along the lines of 'we fucked up, we're sorry, we've heard you and we're binning it'.

We can't resist tailing ours with 'We remain committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game'. We're not the money grabbing whores out to line the pockets of our owners - no, no, we're the saviours. Something has to be done you see?

How about not taking billions out in fucking dividends and giving Old Trafford a lick of paint you fucking parasites?

Yeah, it's ESL lite, done to stave off a ESL. That's why they were so shocked when Ed & co pulled out. If we can get these cunts out of our clubs we could stop shit like this. Also fans need a voice, then we can really influence the direction football is going in.

Pretty sure the Glazers will now look to sell. Share price has settled back to where it was before this debacle, so they might as well cash in the chips.
Hopefully the government's discovery of the need to take action over football will extend to a stringent enforcement of the proper person test for owners.

It’s a relief it all fell apart so quickly. I had my wife’s and my United T-shirts, duvet covers, matching pillow cases, key ring and my scarf all packed up and ready for posting to the owners with a jar of Vaseline to aid insertion...
Luckily it all moved so fast I saved the postage...
