John Henry Chats Up Wid Fans, Looks Promising

Prospective new Liverpool owner
John W Henry has begun a
dialogue with the club's fans
through Twitter, expressing his
hope that the ownership issue is
"sorted out soon''.

Henry, 61, is awaiting a High
Court decision before he can
complete a £300 million
purchase of the club, and the
Boston Red Sox owner will be
closely following proceedings at
Tuesday's hearing in London.
The club's major creditors Royal
Bank of Scotland take current
owners Tom Hicks and George
Gillett to task over their attempts
to change the structure of the
board contrary to previously-
agreed undertakings.
Henry had refused to comment
on the ongoing situation, but
finally broke his silence by
engaging with fans on social
networking site Twitter.
"Hello LFC supporters,'' he
opened up with on Tuesday,
before adding "Thanks Yes,
everyone is hoping for the best.
There have been enough twists
and turns. Hopefully all gets
sorted out soon; LFC moves
"It would be inappropriate and
presumptuous at this time to
respond to questions. In the
interim, we're all rooting for the
same thing.''
Henry has intimated he wants to
engage with fans and is
following the Spirit of Shankly
pressure group, who have been
so vociferous in their opposition
of Hicks and Gillett, on the site.
