After a day of increasing speculation, with some papers saying the board meeting had been canceled, a meeting was held, but in London. A statement was finally issued, after the message boards melted down and websites became overloaded with rumours of who are new owners were going to be. Instead, we got the following statement from LFC…
The Liverpool FC Board has reviewed a number of proposed bids for the club at a meeting held today.
The Board will continue to act in the best interests of Liverpool Football Club and its supporters, doing all that it can to ensure that the Club is ultimately sold to a buyer who has the resources and real commitment to give it a long-term, stable and secure funding position for its plans.
The sale process is continuing. However, its timing and outcome remain uncertain. In the meantime, we will not comment on rumour and speculation.
In other words, we making a statement to say there is no statement to be made. Arrrrgggghhhh
