Henry Ready To Fight Against Hicks For Liverpool

Prospective Liverpool owner John W Henry has vowed to fend off George Gillett and Tom Hicks' desperate attempt to keep the club. Henry and his company New England Sports Ventures (NESV) have already won two battles in the High Court in London, which have cleared the way for their £300million purchase of Liverpool. Now seemingly the only hurdle remaining is a restraining order that Hicks and Gillett took out in Dallas on Wednesday to prevent the club being sold. This was dismissed by the High Court in London on Thursday and Hicks and Gillett were given until 4pm BST to comply with that order. Binding contract Liverpool and NESV have now taken up the battle in Texas and Henry is confident they will defeat Hicks, Gillett and their financial backers Mill Financial. "We have a binding contract," Henry said on his Twitter page. "Will fight Mill, Hicks, Gillett attempt to keep club today. Their last desperate attempt to entrench their regime."
