Tom Hicks and George Gillett are reportedly ready to sell EPL side Liverpool just a year after buying the club.
I guess Hicks and Gillett realized that the EPL is much tougher than any league they’ve ever dealt with before. But if a deal does go through to sale Liverpool, should the two gozillionaires move their money to a MLS side?
I think we’d be dumb to say no really to that question even if neither knows how to run a soccer club.
Hey Tom and George, there is a guy in St. Louis that needs a better backing in the bank department and he would run a club for you if you just ponied up the money for him to get an expansion bid in motion with the MLS.
You can almost bet that if these two did back an expansion bid in the MLS that the league would have to take it no matter what. They’d be able to put more money into the club than half or more of the current owners in the league.
Whether it is St. Louis, Montreal, Portland, or other city I think they should look at investing in the MLS if they really want to stick with the sport. Hell, one can help own one club and the other can go to another city and do the same. Put the money down and let someone else run it club for them.
What do you all think? Should Hicks and Gillett move their soccer attention to the MLS if they sell Liverpool?
