Club sale hiccup as Hick's up

This is another picture of celebration from the media yesterday.

Not quite as ecstatic as the celebration for the rescue of the miners in Chile, but it is for a good cause nonetheless.

It shows Liverpool Football Club Chairman Martin Broughton and Board members Ian Ayre and Christian Purslow celebrating with the fans the ruling by the High Court that the attempt by the much maligned co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett to oust Ayre and Purslow from the Board and block the sale of the club to New England Sports Ventures as unlawful.

The celebration proves to be shortlived, as there is a new twist in the proposed sale. Shortly after the High Court ruling, Hicks succeeded in getting a Texas court to grant him a restraining order to block the sale of the club.

There is no tell for how much longer the saga of the sale of the football club, which are right now languishing in the relegation zone, will go on.
