Liverpool SOS fans plan new protests

Liverpool supporters' group Spirit of Shankly are planning two-day long protests against the club's owners.

The broken promises of Tom Hicks and George Gillet have caused so much anger on Merseyside that protests at games have become common.

However this time the group have gone one step further by encouraging all fans to take part in a sit down protest after Saturday's match with Sunderland.

A statement from the association said: "We would like as many supporters as possible, to make their feelings known towards the owners during the Sunderland match, using banners, flags and songs.

"We ask everyone in the ground to make their voices heard - let everyone know you will no longer tolerate the current owners.

"Following the match, irrespective of the result, we intend to hold a sit in protest. Regardless of where you sit, remain in the ground and make your views heard. Gather at the front of the stand you are in, with flags and banners, and make your voices heard."

Spirit of Shankly have urged supporters to follow a similar course of action the following week, when Blackpool visit Anfield.
