Must be all the racists on board

 

I see nothing wrong with an Asian chinese bidding for our club

 

In fact, I suspect only an Asian owner can make money from actually owning our club, rather than an Arab or American, and definitely not from a local businessman.

 

The reason is simple:

 

All income earned in England, from tickets to merchandise to TV revenues and sponsorship probably would have to be reinvested into the club to keep staying competitive. Costs of players transfers and salaries etc are only going up, not including everything else and taxes

 

Hence, whoever the owner would be would have to earn this income elsewhere, otherwise, owning Liverpool is just a big white elephant.

 

At least in Asia, there is a huge possibility of making money through merchandise, themed bars etc as there is a gigantic fan base there with a growing disposable income

 

This is not the case for any Arab country, and not the case in America (yet)

He owns a chain of Man Utd theme bars in Asia (?)- Seems like the perfect match for us ???

There are Man Utd shops, credit cards, sponsorship of Air Asia etc all over Southeast Asia. Where are all the Liverpool ones?

 

He might very well be a Liverpool fan, but there were no opportunities to invest in the brand in Asia

 

If anything, this guy at least knows how to make money off the name, and knows football, rather than someone from the US.

 

He would do well to change them all to Liverpool theme bars if he buys the club of course, or sell them off and build bigger better "Anfield" theme bars etc.

WTF , is that supposed to scare people into agreeing with you? Oh and your post apart from that does not really make a lot of sense.

If Lim was a red you'd start the bars yourself like he did with the United ones.

 

Your arguement makes no sense, no sense at all.

 

I don't know precisely about the Utd bars, but the shops and credit cards etc are officially linked with the club. I am sure the pubs are the same, due to the fact that Singaporeans do everything officially

 

Liverpool pubs over in Southeast Asia are just watering holes where fans gather. Not officially themed pubs

That would be popular with his regular customers you think?

Who knows? But you lose the Utd customers, you might get the Liverpool ones.

 

Besides, IF you own the club, you gotta stick with your own brand right?

On that Guardian page

 

Despite his new offer, Lim's chances of buying Liverpool are slim. Lim is only likely to gain control of Liverpool if Hicks loses in court and RBS put the club into administration or NESV choose to pull out. NESV's agreement with the LFC board is legally binding, so a higher bid cannot be accepted. Lim might also try to offer Hicks the funds needed to pay off the debt and take control surreptitiously, although this would seem like a very risky strategy. Lim, by the way, is understood to be a Manchester United fan and owns a string of Manchester United themed bars in Asia.

Red Sox have a legally binding contract to buy the club so even if someone bid 500m Red Sox would have to be paid to go away.

 

Its like exchanging contracts on your house and someone comes in with a bigger offer. Maybe a bit more complicated than that but you get the point

So he had all this time to bid, NESV have their bid accepted, it goes to the High Court and all the sudden Lim makes a higher bid public. It stinks and I don't see how it doesn't do anything but strengthen the American's case. What happened last time we accepted a second 'higher' offer for the club from someone who came to the table late?
