I have been disappointed with Rick Parry for some years and thought that he could have done a lot more to drive up Liverpool’s revenue stream from its global support base. But make no mistake, this is not about Rick Parry’s performance as Chief Executive. It is all about Hicks trying to drive wedges between fans, board members and Rafa as part of his battle with Gillett. He sees Parry as an obstacle to him getting his way and want’s rid it’s as simple as that.

Parry and Moores recently blocked Hicks’ attempt to place all the debt on the club when the  the loans he and Gillett took out to buy the Club were refinanced. Hicks clearly hasn’t forgiven them. Parry also asked that one or both of the Club’s co-owners sell their stake in the best interests of the Club since both had publicly stated that they couldn’t work together. Obviously this has also angered Hicks - god knows what else has been going on in the background. Maybe Parry has been trying to push the DIC deal through.

Hicks’ PR team have obviously leaked the fact that he has asked Parry to resign and have revealed some of the content of the letter he sent to Parry. I think it is absolutely disgraceful for them to use the media in this way. Hick’s has also dragged Rafa’s name into the issue buy suggesting that he is also unhappy with Parry. Even if this is true you do not discuss private conversations with the media or use another person’s view as an excuse to ask someone to resign. What a back stabbing gobshite Hicks is!

Parry asked to resign by tom hicks; who has blamed Rafa Benitez for his decision.

So let's get this straight (at work right now, so no access to Sky): Rafa wants Parry to resign? And he's asked Hicks to get rid of him?

I know the PR machine has been in overdrive about Rafa and Hicks being bessie mates, but I really can't see this happening at this stage of the season.

It's on ssn, Parry says he's going nowhere!  Fair play to him for standing up to that c*nt Hicks.

Good effort. Now we'll see what Gillett is made of I think.

With all the talk about Ian Ayre being Hicks yes man and being able to swing 50-50 decisions, then surely if Parry is in bed with Gillett then Hicks is now as powerless as Gillett would have been.

Clutching at straws here but I hope Hicks has done this knowing that Parry wouldnt go and GG wouldnt push him. Hicks comes out and says "well I cant work my magic with this, so I'm off".  Saves face, makes a profit, and lets him gob off about how great it could have been if it wasnt for those pesky scousers.
All the badge kissing in the world don't make up for the fact that they are, frankly, not Liverpool Football Club. It's not their fault. Its just how it is.

Sorry but if Hicks gets rid of Parry he gains control of the boardroom

I'm with parry on this one.  Though he is thoroughly inefficient, he is anti- Hicks and in vital boardroom decisions, his vote might make the difference.  I just hope he stays and pushes another takeover deal with the DIC through in the near future.

Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.

This looks like the start of the 'end game'!!
All parties in the ownership debacle have now publically declared their positions and effectively their intentions.
Hicks is overstating the strength of his position. Gillett is playing a quiet line and DIC are keeping their powder dry in the wings.

Meanwhile Rick Parry getting machine gunned in the crossfire.

Expect all this to become extremely dirty and fall into the hands of DIC.

ShareLiverpool have missed the boat, having been too cautious in their advance to the battlefield.

Two things.

First of all, is Hicks so stupid that he would request Parry's resignation, when he knows that Parry will stay so long as Gillett supports him? This worries me, because while Hicks has come across as a complete numbskull over the past year, I fear he has something up his sleeve that may force Parry to quit.

Secondly, how, and why did this letter get released to the press? Haven't we been embarrassed enough for them to figure it out? How does broadcasting our every internal squabble to the world help ANYONE's cause here? That's a serious question. I don't see why Parry and his advisers would see the need to release this news, he surely knows that Hicks cannot possibly be hated anymore than he is already, and with his job secure so long as Gillet has his back, I think we can rule out the possibility that he did it to save his job.

Then there's Hicks. Is he intent on showing that there is no bigger twat than he on this Earth? His moves are so obvious and frankly......fucking evil, that I find it difficult to comprehend why he would see sense in escalating the fans' hatred towards him. Very confusing situation.

Parry has no sway in the boardroom, THAT's the exact problem Sal.
He is in a position where he should be advising and making decisions to make Rafa's and the owner's lives easier.
As for who will replace him?  No idea and don't rightly care.  By getting rid of Parry and worrying about who will come in it is tantamount to stopping going to see Dr Shipman and worrying about how bad your next doctor will be.  Ultimately, it doesn't fucking matter, it can't be any worse.

I actually quite like Hicks, and don't mind if he wants to get rid of Parry but doing this in public is a bad show. In the days when John Smith was in charge, if someone was to be got rid of the first we would have known would be their coffin being carried out. Powerless letters leaked to SSN? Very bad show.
