It may not have been the right result on the pitch for Liverpool today, but off the pitch it was a success for the Liverpool Supporters Union, Spirit of Shankly.
A peaceful protest took place prior to kick off, aimed at denying joint owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett access to Anfield. The protest was a success with 8 empty seats in the director’s box during the game and police turning Hicks and Gillett away on health and safety grounds.
SOS posted a short update on their Facebook page tonight saying the protest worked. Full details will be made available on Monday.
Tom and George were on one of their few all-expenses paid trips to Anfield, with it being against a big four club of course. Don’t hold your breathe seeing them against Wigan on Wednesday.
It appears there were some arrests, although one in particular seems to have been a blatant targeting of an SOS leader.
Well in SOS, the message is clear Tom and George, You’re Not Welcome.
