Did the recent protests force Tom Hicks into finally selling Liverpool FC? It’s plausible, but we’ve uncovered another theory, which credits Jim Royle (aka Ricky Tomlinson) as the real saviour of Anfield.
Let’s look at the evidence. Liverpool’s fans have protested long hard in recent weeks and have not even been acknowledged by the powers be at Anfield. Then a video gets released on the internet starring Jim and Barbara Royle, along with a simmering John Aldridge and raging Reds fans, demanding the sale of the club and what happens? Less than 24 hours later the club is SOLD.
Conincidence or fate? Well the result speaks for itself. If you wheel out Jim Royle to star in a protest video expect big things to happen.
