First meeting with LFC representatives

First meeting with LFC representatives Today, Tuesday 4 May 2021, Spirit of Shankly, with the full backing of affiliates, met with Billy Hogan and Liverpool FC representatives. At the meeting SOS tabled the following requests: Two SOS representatives at LFC board level in relation to issues that impact fans and the Anfield community as a whole. This would involve a reconstitution of the LFC board that includes effective, elected and accountable fan representation, and not for members of the current LFC board to be that elected representative.

Time for change: next steps

Time for change: next steps. It has been a tumultuous, sickening few days for us all. Spirit of Shankly have always asked for honesty, integrity and transparency from club owners FSG, but the arrogance and deception they have shown behind this money-grab is frightening. But not surprising. We have noted John Henry’s apology, but this PR exercise is too little too late. These crocodile tears will not wash. Actions speak louder than ‘hollow’ words. Liverpool Football Club is not an American franchise, it is a community steeped in history and tradition. The ‘future of football’ [...]

European Super League: a statement

European Super League: a statement Liverpool Football Club’s confirmation, made at 11.30pm on 18th April 2021, that they “have joined Europe's leading clubs in agreeing to form a new competition, the European Super League” is both shocking and shameless. Spirit of Shankly were formed when the result of broken promises by the club’s previous owners threatened LFC’s existence. This proposal threatens to destroy everything on which our club was built. And the reason? Greed, pure and simple. The Champions League, as was its predecessor the European Cup, is the pinnacle for LFC, for the players, [...]
