David Moores
« on: January 17, 2010, 10:27:10 PM »
Just read this on TLW.

This morning at about 11.30, myself and ATK decided after yet another week of turmoil at LFC to present ourselves at the gates of the home of David Moores.

Any one who knows me and Al in private or on these boards will know we have both been two of Moores fiercest critics. We both fully expected to be turned away Monty Burns style with the hounds in hot pursuit. But we thought we should at least try and see if he would listen to us and maybe answer some of our questions.

We stood outside of his gate and rang the intercom. A lady answered who we believe was his wife. We introduced ourselves and asked if it would be possible to talk to DM. After a brief conversation she went away and then a minute or two later DM spoke to us for some time via the intercom.

Again we introduced ourselves and after a short and very civil conversation we asked DM if he would be kind enough to come to the gates and talk to us. To our surprise DM agreed to our request and met us at his gates.

We put it to DM that after yet another week of embarrassment at the club and things were so bad both on and off the pitch that it may be time for him to break his silence. We explained that we felt if a major figurehead was to stand up and rally support then maybe our uneducated fan base and the banks might actually sit up and take notice. We also put it to DM that it might a way of at least trying to put right which was ultimately his wrong.

At no time did the conversation turn sour and all talk was very civil. I personally felt that DM genuinely listened to what we had to say but I also realise I could be wrong. We ended the conversation by thanking DM for his time and once again urged him to stand up and join the fight to help the club.

We left our contact details with DM and asked him to think about what we had said. We will let you all know if DM responds to our request.

Some of you may think our efforts this morning were a waste of time. Myself an ATK both feel that things at LFC are in such a critical state that we had to try something.

The mass has ended, go in peace.

It easy to do nothing. Steve Horner e-mailed Tom Hicks Jnr last week and now he's gone. Hopefully David Moores will get back in touch with them or speak out. Failing that after Wednesday we don't play again for 10 days hopefully the Echo will get in touch with him after hearing about this.

Depends..

1  If he's any backbone he would have already said his bit.

2  If it would have had any effect then maybe he would have spoke.

3  He's loaded and don't give a shit.

Moores and/or Parry need to properly explain how the club got into hands of these idiots, so who better to ask than supporters?

Well done and hopefully he'll make some kind of anti-owner statement.

But surely he'd have done something before now - is there a confidentiality/keep your mouth shut clause in the sale to the Yanks as well the extra £500 per share.

Quite right Bill he don't give a shit, none of this hurts him like us real fans anyway, he wasn't duped like the rest of us and it was a disgrace he stood down when we all were pointing for new investment and saying he should sell, infact; what have the Moores family done for Liverpool Football Club at all?

Some of you may think our efforts this morning were a waste of time. 
on the contrary,I think that was a brilliant idea and if DM decides to join the fight against the Yanks alongside fans that would be huge. From the media coverage to everything else.

good move IMO.

Some of you may think our efforts this morning were a waste of time. Myself an ATK both feel that things at LFC are in such a critical state that we had to try something.

http://www.liverpoolway.co.uk/forum/ff-football-forum/87782-dougie-atk-moores-17-01-10-a.html

No True LFC fan would think that.  I'm so happy this took place. 

It may not make a difference in the boardroom, but I still think it will give us all a small shot in the arm if Moores would be, ahem, candid about matters.

Applaud the attempt but make no mistake, David Moores has had plenty of opportunities to speak out publicly and yet has remained deathly silent. Aside from the woefully pathetic "I believed dem fellas..." view he's shared in private. As any shareholder who listened to him stumble his way through AGMs will tell you, the man has no spine, which I suppose is fitting given the matching gaping void between his ears. If you were to cast him as a historical figure, it'd be Emperor Nero, fiddling whilst Rome burns.

In other words, draw your own conclusions as to the likely outcome of this visit. Me? I'll guarantee "jack shit". No wait I take that back. The minute this conversation ended, he went back into his house and made one of two phone calls to take swift action. Estate agent or security company.

I feel sorry for the bloke.

He has made a huge mistake and will have to live with it for the rest of his life.

He is solely responsible, which probably makes his regret even worse. I would never condone hounding him, but he does have a lot of accountablilty for selling to those greedy bastards. I don't believe that he doesn't care, and I think its naive to suggest that "he is loaded so he doesn't care", he has done so much for the club over the years and it must be heartbreaking for him to see what has happened since he left.

It would be nice to hear him speak out and publicly share his views on what is happening with us.
