two new bids to buy the club.. - Page 2 - FF - Football Forum - The Liverpool Way Jump to content

Liverpool's board met on Tuesday after it received two new bids to buy the club, BBC Sport understands.

It is thought one of the bids is from Asia, with the other from America.

A source close to the negotiations said: "Both would significantly reduce the debt and give the current owners their original investment back."

But the club's co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett are understood to be opposing the sale of the Reds to either of the two parties.

Liverpool were put up for sale by American duo Hicks and Gillett in April with debts of £351.4m.

More to follow.

Hmmmmm.... I dont like the sound of that. And why would Gillet and Hicks want to block that anyway? Sounds like a good deal for them under the circumstances.

 

I think these are another couple of bogus bids. Stalling tactics if you will.

how can they be owed £150m when they owe £280M?

 

The owners took out a loan courtesy of Kop Cayman to which they charge the club interest (although this is getting rolled up and not yet charged).

So not all the debt will be wiped clean?

 

Fuck off.

No thanks.

 

What happened to wipe out the debt and give Gillett and Hicks fuck all.

These bids in all fairness come as no surprise as the time is coming for RBS to call the loan in.

 

There is interest in the club but not at the stupid price Hicks and Gillett are asking.

 

Now we are getting closer and closer to the deadline day the interested parties are showing their hands in preperation for the price to drop to a more reasonable level.

As I understand it, there was a clause in the last RBS deal that they could 'call it in' at their leisure, so presumably they could force them to sell!

 

I just hope if there are genuine buyers, they're not another shower of greedy cowboys.

Forgot about Kop Cayman - surely they can be told to do one with that loan?

I dont believe a word of this as the timing of this breaking is too suspect.

 

BBC report RBS will call in the loan and the fans video comes out then suddenly we have offers on the table... Bollocks.

 

They are trying to deflect attention away from the video and buy more time with RBS.

cleared the lot straight away.

 

What does that mean? No one will do that. It is how the "debt" or if you prefer "equity" is treated. If it needs servicing it is an issue. Chelsea has a mountain of debt in the form of a note but it is not a drain on the cash flow.

For me these two bids are real then they are to try and get the club now before the default comes into place.

 

By offering to buy the club and offer Hicks and Gillett the opportunity to walk away debt free from the sale but not made anything these two interested parties are hoping to get into pole position.

 

If RBS do call the loan in the the price will drop so more interested parties will appear who have been waiting for this event.
