Writing the article about Liverpool's finances reminded me of those days when everyone was going nuts about the reported Reds buyout by the Thai government in 2004. The Moores were planning to sell 30% of their stake to Thaksin Shinawatra, the billionaire PM of Thailand. OK, he is not right now their PM because he did some naughty things like not pay the income tax on selling off his billion dollar holdings and the Thais righteously refused to let that one go. So it was off with him and his ill gotten gains.
Yep, at this point having the Reds as his team would have been good for Thaksin's fortunes and the Reds would have some fancy money to throw at those Serie players. According to sources there are more than a million Liverpool supporters in Thailand. That is a lot of votes.
But the Kops are probably saying, " We are doing quite alright, thank you very much."
