Liverpool fans take Hicks protests to USA

Liverpool fans are taking their protests against co-owner Tom Hicks off shore.

The Sunday Express says Liverpool fans have flooded US media outlets and financial centres with e-mails outlining their disgust at Hicks' attempts to cling on to power.

The fans have warned potential investors that their wrath will come down on those who are sympathetic to the hated Hicks. The American is prepared to buy out Liverpool partner George Gillett and hang on to the club in the hope he can sell for a huge profit. Unless he can raise the necessary cash to pay off the RBS then the club could fall into the hands of the bank.

The RBS would then have to swiftly find new owners - but at a knockdown price of £300m.

That is why all interested parties are holding off in the knowledge they could get it on the cheap.
