Liverpool fans can keep their scarves close at hand

Or give their new owners a very warm welcome

Liverpool supporters might be relieved to be getting rid of Tom Hicks and George Gillett (if the other directors do eventually prise the club out of their grip) after months of protests.

The unfortunate aspect of the takeover news is that the campaign against Hicks and Gillett has been largely run on pretty xenophobic grounds (that’s not to say the reasons for wanting them out are xenophobic, but some of the banners speak for themselves).

So it will be interesting to see what happens to the Thanks But No Yank$ and Yanks Out scarves and banners when the new, erm, American owners arrive.
