“Officially” Root for Liverpool FC at Roebling Inn

The Roebling Inn [97 Atlantic Avenue] has been made an official chapter of the Liverpool Football Club NY. That means the pub will be screening all of Liverpool’s Premier League games live from the UK starting August 15.

BHB’s Futbol correspondent Teddy Boy Eddie will be there to file a report.

The LFCNY membership is quite passionate about its team and fired off this missive last week urging the club to undergo massive change and for their American owners to sell, leave and get out:

“Get out of our club now and forever. You’ve done enough damage. Go before you do any more.”
The LFCNY, the oldest and biggest Liverpool supporters’ club in North America, unreservedly calls for Tom Hicks and George Gillett to step down immediately as owners. They are nothing more than financial parasites who are using the club we have known and loved all our lives for nothing more than increasing their bank balances.

They care not for our 18 League Championships; they care not for our 5 European Cups; they care not for our 3 UEFA Cups; they care not for our 7 FA Cups; they care not for our 7 League Cups; they care not for our 3 European Super Cups. They care not for the Liverpool way, for the fans, for the history, for the memories, for the glories of our great club. For the glory that is Liverpool FC. They care not.

They are not fit and proper persons to be the guardians of Liverpool FC.

All they have contributed to Liverpool FC since that horrendous day in February 2007 is shame and dishonor. When they arrived, the club debt stood at £44.8 million; we were told that their debts incurred in buying the club would not be foisted upon the club. We were also told that work would begin on a new stadium in 60 days. This summer, the debt of Liverpool FC is £350 million and there are no plans for any stadium and the manager Rafael Benitez has been fired. Lies, subterfuge and debts. This has been the sad and sorry story of the tenure of Tom Hicks and George Gillett at Liverpool FC.

In coming weeks, the LFCNY will be working closely with all the other Liverpool supporters’ clubs in North America and the Spirit of Shankly (SOS) to make sure that these two men will have nothing more to do with Liverpool FC. The people of Liverpool, the fans worldwide and the club itself deserves better than the steady diet of falsehoods and insults that have been served up by Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
“Get out of our club now and forever. You’ve done enough damage. Go before you do any more.”

    Will this pitch Roebling versus Floyd when Liverpool and Tottenham play against each other?

    That’s the best news I’ve heard in months

    I can see it now. It’ll be soccer houligans from Roebling and Floyd rumbling at Pier 6 on Sunday afternoons.

    And the blame will fall on William and Lee for closing Magnetic Field.

    I can assure everyone that LFC’s NY supporters are amongst the friendliest you’ll encounter. Now, if it were an Arsenal supporters club setting up there, you may have to worry about some “fun” with the Spurs boys.

    Teds v. Skins?

    If the micky mousers are setting up, do we now have to watch our hubcaps?

  • Teddie Boy Eddie

    Ha, the inevitable hubcaps reference. Good job, Pete.

    Does this mean that the meat pies are out and lo-mein is in?
