"For the FSG shadowbankers this simply means 2 million more souls to monetise and make profit from before they sell their cut price investment (LFC) for a profit for themselves."

"Jim, do you think shadowbankers are "enled" to break the first rule of capitalism and that is to accept risk....because what shadowbanking and the shadowbanking divisions of most criminal bankster cronies of FSG have done is socialism for the rich..Keeping trillions in profits then getting the taxpayer to bail them out with billions when they messed up."

"Also - FSG didn't "build LFC up"....they bought it at well below market value (even they admitted as such)....and they only did so because LFC already had massive global monetisation and revenue stream growth potential, even with lack of on-field success/top 4. They were told to sit back and watch the monetisation grow and that's exactly what they're doing."

"Just the facts Jim. No point debating facts with pathetic, bankster apologist shills such as yourself who can never debate the issues raised. Your claim that there were no other buyers is garbage. One of the other bidders is currently subpoenaing FSG and RBS to New York supreme court over allegations of bid rigging and monies owed. "

"RBS could not have asset stripped LFC. The problem was H and G acquisition debt. Plenty of bidders were available. RBS on record as saying LFC had good credit and called FSG bottom of the barrel then did the flip flop. Take your ill informed FSG butt kissing propaganda and go and troll NESN."

"EPL needs evolution towards progressive 50% plus one Bundesliga fan ownership model where corporate interests are subservient to football requirements. Kick out financial and oil oligarchs and ownership by shadowbankers who had no interest in our club before buying on the cheap. Making Anfield an Asset of Community Value was good start. Well done Spirit of Shankly."

"Mill Financial are shadowbankers just like FSG. I have outlined why no shadowbankers or bankster criminals who profit from exploiting food and fuel prices and crises globally are welcome at LFC. The only shadowbanking apologist on here is you. Funny how you now acknowledge MF but earlier claimed there were no other potential bidders."

"FSG have no plans to sell Red Sox because they see it as their key investment and many of them are Red Sox fans. Many in FSG want out of LFC - as exampled by Jeff Vinik quitting. Funnily enuff Henry only got Red Sox with a below rest of bidders price because it is on record that he was Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig's "man" who profited from the transaction."

"There is a difference between owners being in it for their own profit and in it for re-investing monies raised by the club back into the club. You're an FSG propaganda spouting embarrassment. You didn't address any of the points about shadowbanking etc. What a surprise. End of debate."

"At least they have some sort of business plan that doesn't rely on high risk spending, loans or false Man City style sponsorships and are prepared to fund the stadium redevelopment.They say they are here long term and will make LFC self sufficient isn't that the best way forward for LFC not relying on Sugar Daddy owners or bank loans?
