Hicks & Gillet - broken up
Hicks & Parry - broken up
Parry & Gillet - good, but can't do anything alone with how things.....

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?

Nonsense. He's played as big a role in the off field farce that is Liverpool FC as anyone else. He's consistently under performed and we're still waiting for his proposed new stadium nearly a decade on.

Wont be missed in the long run. I'd rather have an affective businessman as a CEO than the two faced cock that is Parry.

He expended any grace he had a long time ago. Fuck off Parry.

don't know what to make of this to be honest. who is Hicks going to bring in?

Not the c*nts that have brought him no success whatsoever in America I would hope.

This was posted in one of the other Hicks/DIC threads yesterday by someone who said he  had a source in the Hicks Camp:-

"First post here, so im probably going to get shot down or ignored

The announcement is coming tommorow. Something along the lines of Hicks is going to buy out Gillet's shares, and that Ian Ayre (Commercial director) is going to become the CEO, Parry will be sacked

Also....Gillet wasn't stuck in snow in colorado...he was in London in the same hotel as Ayre"

Too much of a coincidence?

Anyone with any intelligence would and any genuine interest in the club would have waited to make this change in the summer. It can do nothing but unsettle the club.

I'm beginning to want us to not win the CL as it will just make that prick less likely to sell.

http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11661_3407566,00.html

Liverpool's season of boardroom turmoil took another astonishing twist on Thursday when co-owner Tom Hicks asked for the resignation of chief executive Rick Parry.



It is believed that a letter arrived at Anfield on Thursday - just 48 hours after Liverpool's successful passage into the UEFA Champions League semi-finals - demanding Parry's departure.


Parry is currently in London at a Premier League meeting but he has been made aware of the communication and is expected to refuse to quit by return of post.


This shock move from the Dallas-based co-owner is just another twist in the ongoing saga over control of the club, which reached a peak last month when talks between Hicks and Dubai International Capital broke down.


Hicks was in London last week and watched both the Liverpool matches against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.


But on Tuesday, Hicks was back in Dallas watching his Texas Rangers baseball team while co-owner George Gillett was shown on TV sitting next to Parry in the Liverpool directors' box during the 4-2 win over Arsenal.



Unstable


And this current development does nothing for the stability of the club ahead of Rafa Benitez's attempts to reach a third European Cup final in four years.


However, with the club ownership split 50-50 between the two Americans, Hicks would not have been able to sanction Parry's dismissal, hence the letter received at Anfield on Thursday.


Hicks was believed to have been enraged by an interview from Parry in which the chief executive pleaded with both co-owners to end the war or words between them and come to an agreement that would allow the club to move forward.


It was Parry who was largely involved in bringing Gillett to the club 18 months ago, with the American bringing in Hicks for added financial muscle to get the deal through.



Broken down


At that point DIC believed they were on the brink of buying former chairman David Moores' majority holding, only for the deal to collapse at the last minute when Moores - now life vice-president and still a board member - changed his mind.


Since then DIC have patiently worked towards a deal to buy out both Americans. It is believed that Gillett has agreed to sell his stake, but refuses to sell those shares to Hicks.


The relationship between Gillett and Hicks has spectacularly broken down, with Parry at times finding himself in the middle trying to run the club effectively on a day-to-day basis.


Now Hicks' camp clearly believe that Parry is siding with Gillett as the uproar rumbles on, which has prompted the request for his resignation.

No. This is fat leather head implicating Rafa. He is abdicating responsibility here and making Rafa responsible for the sacking of Parry.

We have to get rid of this alien!

Just thinking the same. he's stuck the knife in Parry's back and turned round and said, 'Rafa made me do it'

Use your brains. How is this a good thing?

Do you prefer Hicks to Parry? Do you really think it is a good thing that he is doing this without giving a shit about the effects on the team. Are you not concerned that Benitez will be next. I just wish people would fuckin think first.

Whilst I am certainly no fan of Rick Parry but from what I've heard from various sources both on RAWK and from around the club he and David Moores have been working to protect the club as best they can from the Americans. If he were to be replaced with Hicks own man then this wouldn't be anything to celebrate.

I think it's a good thing.

Parry has performed very badly.

I'd also say that it almost certainly isn't Hicks that revealed this to the press - it's far more likely to be Parry - therefore it seems odd to stick blame on making it public on Hicks.

I actually also liked the fact that Rafa was mentioned.  Saying that you are getting rid of the CEO because they aren't sorting out what the manager wants seems to me to be saying that what Rafa says is vitally important.

Of course it might all be spin, but then I don't have the hatred of Hicks that a lot of people have and am still trying to be optimistic.

I have mixed emotions about the possibility of parry leaving. I mean he fucked us fans over so many times that under any other circumstances id be cracking open the champagne right now however while the embarrassing soap opera
between our two yanks owners continues I really cant tell if his departure would be helpful or detrimental.

Is parry being asked to resign because he’s….

a) as hicks has said, not doing his job as well as he should be
or
b) currently trying to engineer a way for DIC to takeover


So very confusing and frustrating…
