In all honesty I don't blame the owners, they have to protect the club and its image in the long term and these statements are the only way now to put this matter to bed. Obviously its horrible having to watch as the club, once again, bend over and take one from the media, the mancs, the FA and every other fucker with an opinion but if we keep fighting its only going to get worse. We will lose sponsors, which means we lose money and for a team with apirations of Champions League football and silverware thats disasterous in the modern game.
I'm hoping that behind closed doors, something similar to the OP has been said to the players, if,we can't adopt an us against the world mentality after the last few months then we never will, because that's exactly what it is at the moment, everyone hates us and worst of all, old whiskey nose has played a blinder in spurring it all on.
Everyone hates us and I for one don't give a shit and nor should any other lfc fan, now is the time to move forward under one banner, get behind the club like only lfc fans can and unite as one and show the watching world that they'll never bring us down.
