Liverpool Football club appears to have finally shaken the predatory American owners off their backs. The Yanks Go Home pressure has finally paid off.
However, Merseyside was plunged into new despair on the news that the new owners will be American as well.
'It's a replay' one fan complained 'We have to play the Yanks again.'
The fact that the new owners wear red socks has persuaded some that they should be given a chance. 'You start with socks' it was explained to me 'and before long your shirt is red as well!'
Everton fans sympathise with the Kop faithful. 'It was the Yanks again or bankruptcy' one Evertonian announced 'it would be tragic if our Liverpool friends lost ten points and got relegated.' Tears streamed down his face.
The big millions that are involved with football are putting the game on the front pages of the 'Financial Times'. 'At least that's pink' said Paul McCartney. The promionent Beatle is being urged to take over at the Pool as he is one of the few people who can afford the club.'
'You can't buy me, love' he declared to a Liverpool lady 'you are in for some hard days, right.'
