Liverpool ownership battle comes full circle

Guest Starring Marc Ressang as ‘Liverpool Player’.

When American businessmen Tom Hicks and George Gillett bought Liverpool Football Club in February 2007 they initially received a hero’s welcome. But the adulation faded quickly as promises made to fans about a new stadium and the club’s debts were broken.

It didn’t take long for the fans to become fed up with Hicks and Gillett, sparking protests imploring the Americans to sell up.

As the banks closed in, Hicks and Gillett were forced to make way. The club’s new owners were free to take control of the club and make an impression with the fans.

Randy Rooney scores own goal

England and Man United star striker Wayne Rooney is in the headlines again. A prostitute known as ‘Premiership Jen’ claims Rooney slept with her seven times last year while his wife Coleen was pregnant. She said that Rooney had a threesome with her and a friend. She said the sex was “boring.” It’s not the first time Rooney has been caught out. In 2004, it was reported Rooney had visited grandmother Patricia Tierney for sex. The England management has given their star striker the go-ahead to play for his country, while the rest of the squad have rallied around him. But it’s not all good news. This latest scandal could spell the end of his two-year marriage to childhood sweetheart Coleen. England fans, however, are more concerned that the story will lead Rooney to perform as badly as he did at the recent World Cup.

‘Thumbs-up’ on YouTube if you like Premiership Jen better than Patricia Tierney.
