The new owners of Liverpool FC have noted that the fan base for the club is not as large as it could be, and have put this down to there being another Premiership club just across the park from Anfield.
"We have put an offer in to buy Evertone," said Morton Mooney, Boston Red Sox owner, and one half of the pairing buying Liverpool. "And for that grassy bit between 'em. What's it called? Shafton Park?"
Early report indicate that Morton Mooney and Thane Sence plan on building a new stadium on the park and merging the two clubs into one super club. Thane Sence showed a graphic of the new stadium which would seat one hundred and fifty thousand people.
"We're planning on calling it Liverton Purple Sox," said Sence. "They will play in purple. We have also noticed that there are a lot of Carlsberg shirts still in use at Anfield, whilst Evertin are sponsored by some Chinese beer, or is it Korean? Never mind. As beer sponsorship seems quite popular, we will be getting sponsorship from Budweiser."
On hearing that there may be some animosity to the merger, the new stadium would have three separate areas for home fans. One section for die hard reds, one for die hard blues and one for people who don't give a toss, as the football gets them out of the house for an afternoon.
Liverpool fans' group Shankley Shankley Shankley, is up in arms about the proposed merger.
"I think I'd rather switch to watching Tranmere," said Scott Ouse, chairman for the supporter's group spluttered. "Sponsored by Budweiser? I thought they said we'd be sponsored by a beer?"
