Liverpool FC’s Plight Captures Attention of Hollywood A-listers

Since the initial takeover of Liverpool FC by American’s Tom Hicks and George Gillett fans have been at constant pains with their perceived mismanagement and financial dealings, but now it seems Hollywood has taken up their plight with plans for a viral movie to be released on Youtube next week.

United Kingdom, the 29th of September 2010: Along with respected actors Samuel L Jackson and Mike Myers, both avid Reds fans,the short film about the financial plight of Liverpool FC will be co-produced by Hollywood heavyweights Mike Jefferies and Dan Hubbard, according to the UK press.

In what is being branded a short ‘viral’ film, Hollywood looks set to combine with Reds fans and anti-Hicks/Gillett activists to protest against the pair’s management of the Premier League giants. The video has been slated for release on the public video broadcasting website, Youtube, next week.

Jefferies, mastermind behind the ‘Goal’ movie trilogy and self-proclaimed Reds fanatic stated, “You won’t believe who’s involved. I’ve been stunned by terrific reaction of so many celebrity Reds, and many, many fans want to be involved in the film too.”

“It is important to get the message across that the fans want Hicks and Gillett out. There are millions of supporters who can not accept their club being touted as a product like a soft drink. They don’t care about the players or the fans. Or our history, or our heritage, and they don’t care about our future, added Jefferies.”

Jefferies, his associates and indeed the fans look set to publicly embarrass the current Reds owners, who have been constantly accused of running the once mighty club into the ground over intentions to turn a profit from its resale. The pair paid a reported £218.9 million for the club in February 2007 and are now seeking to turn a massive profit from the investment, which also includes approximately £350 million in debt to the Royal Bank of Scotland. Reportedly, £237.4m of that debt stems from their initial purchase of the club.

Adding fuel to the strictly business approach by the two American’s is the fact that several, above valuation, offers from Dubai International Capital (DIC) have reportedly been rejected or ignored, with the pairs valuation of the club reported at a staggering £800m.
