I hope you don’t mind @cynicaloldgit but with your recent post, you raised a subject that I think is pertinent.
So to what extent will we as fans allow (potentially) our ownership to become increasingly morally questionable / flat out bankrupt? Let’s hypothesize here, City, Chelsea and Newcastle enter a footballing arms’ race purely for the glory and adulation. FSG refuse to get involved and the fans turn on them. (not me I stress, I remember THAT day) So if we were bought by different owners, how would you all feel if we became a trophy piece for mega money made from obvious humanitarian violations? Other member of the Saudi royal family? DIC as it was? A Russian with as many deaths in his closet as rubels in his bank account?
For me, I’ll take brilliant management and creativity for the time being under FSG but if the goal posts get moved so far that we’re hoping to finish 5th at best, you have to ask a simple question. What price allegiance and fan-ship? I don’t think I could or would ever stop being a Liverpool fan. Maybe it’s easier that others have gone into this territory before. Somehow that makes it easier. If we were being bought today by somebody with unlimited finance, I understand some being worried, saddened, disgusted but would anybody be not just the least bit excited?
