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.
