Liverpool football club's off field future is still to be decided following an unsuccessful visit to Saudi Arabia. George Gillett, co-owner met lots of very rich guys wearing tea towels on their heads but no deal was done.
Gillett spent several days in Saudi looking at how football has developed in sandy conditions. He was most impressed with the beach ball that is used in official matches out there and was heard to say that there could be a place for it in the English game.
The Saudi sports investment company F5 met with Gillett during his visit. "We never spoke about Liverpool football club" said Gassy Handiddin, the company's managing director. "We talked about cars and I offered him 10 camels for his wife. You know, all the usual shit."
Liverpool football club are gradually slipping further behind in the modern game and need a cash injection soon. Robbie Fowler has offered to sell a few of his houses to raise some cash. However, the club are still holding out for a Saudi Prince who can afford to blow millions betting on red.
