Time tends to pass fairly quickly, and against the history of Liverpool FC, a decade isn’t much. Today, 31 January, marks 10 years since a meeting in The Sandon pub of 350 supporters. Angry at Tom Hicks and George Gillett burdening the club with debt and more, we met to discuss passionately what we should do.
A document that Spirit of Shankly has been aware of for some time has surfaced on the internet, making several references to us as an organisation, members of our Management Committee and members of the Union.
Following on from the agreement at last Saturday's EGM, Spirit Of Shankly is asking for volunteers to assist with the distribution of leaflets amongst fans at this weekend's away game at West Ham United.
When over three hundred of us crammed into the backroom of The Sandon pub four years ago, not many expected us to be where we are today. The future of our football club looked bleak and worry and desperation crept in as we debated and argued about what was best for the football club. In the next few months and years, our worst fears came true, as the problems in the boardroom meant success on the pitch ground to a halt. No cup finals, no trophies. Now, 4 years on from that historic meeting, supporters are back doing what they do best - planning trips to cup finals and talking of silverware again. Sadly though, not all those who have helped us achieve this moment will be there to witness it. Tomorrow, Paul Rice, our Vice Chair, Honorary Vice President and former Chairman, will be laid to rest following his death on 21st January 2012.
