Tom Hicks had ASKED/REQUESTED Rick parry to resign. As he only holds 50% he can't just sack him apparently, so obviously, Gillette will come in and say the opposite. Not sure if it's good or bad for Liverpools sake at this moment though to be honest.

Slight guess he'll say NO though.

Not bad news in my mind.

Parry has not resigned, he has been asked to resign.

Hicks can not do this without Gillett's consent. Parry has clearly sided with DIC and Gillett in this saga, so perhaps now Parry has got nothing to lose and can help try to force Hick's out. Assuming Gillett does want to sell to DIC.

Much like the DIC statement, this could just hasten the process.
It looks to me as if we have signed another 'average' player. I'll hold back my complete opinion until I see the lad play

What a load of crap. How can you even think this is good news? You guys have forgotten he was the one who fought to stop GH from loading all debt on the club?

If its Hicks out then Parry out, thats what you call good news.
If its Parry out and Hicks putting his own ridiculous personnel from america who dont have a clue about football and are Hicks 'yes' man, its the worst that could happen to us now.

If we had someone in the club who could have some little say in GH matter, it was Parry and Moores. One is gone, not long before the other is kicked out as well.

Hicks is taking over I am afraid, my worst fear seems to be coming true. How can people not understand this simple thing?

He wasn't perfect, he made mistakes. But he was genuine. He had the best interests of the club at heart, and gave us a plethora of successful teams that we should have been thankful for.

Yes, he is going anyway, he should inflict as much damage on hicks on his way out, he owes us that much, he can save a little bit of face, still a clown though,

This will probably be a very bad thing, whos gonna replace him? A Tom Hick "Yes" Man?

Yes, probably. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. A chief executive only has the authority to act on the board's behalf on a day to day basis. Someone who doesn't do what the owners say is heading for the sack anyway. And owners and a CEO at logger-heads just makes for paralysis. That means we miss out on new players.

And no, I'm not saying that I support the Americans,

apparently Parry wrote a letter to Hicks requesting that Moores be allowed in the boardroom for the Arsenal away game as he was such a longstanding servant to the club.

Apparently Hicks replied along the lines of "Fuck off, its my club."

We all knew this was coming anyway, didn't Hicks actually tell a RAWKite that this wasgoing to happen?

Gilette won't veto it.

They may be in a nark but they're both ruled by the almighty dollar.

Parry has proved time and time again, in areas of promoting the club, selling the club, buying (not buying) players, relations between manager and chairmen, relations with fans, and ticket distribution that he is inept.

How this man has lasted this long I'll never know.

Bad timing?

Nope, perfect.

Its no major loss. Strange timing yet again but the man was shizzle at what he done. It should in no way affect the reds on the pitch but it pushes us further away from DIC as they have calmed down yet agian because of the trouble in the backroom of the club.

Just a bad man has lost his job. No worries !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is a big part of it.

Independent reports today that Hicks is stepping up attempts to raise the 160m to buy out Gillett. Whatever we may have thought/hoped, clear now that Hicks isn't gonna go anywhere without a massive fight.

I fear Hicks is taking the pawns out before going for the kill, very bad news imo. Parry may have been incompetant at his job, but it doesn't mean he doesn't have the best interests of the club at heart.

He should fax a polite 'fuck you' back to Hicks.

So Parry goes what then,

Hicks can't appoint a new Chief Exec without Gillettes approval, 

Hicks vetoed Gillettes sale to Dic,

Gillette refuses to appoint a new Exec,

No new signings for Rafa,

Rafa resigns,

Fans blame Hicks,

Hicks forced into sale as price of club falls,

The only winner here is George Gillette.
