Morning all, it’s the most important day in the history of Liverpool Football Club and the biggest result the Club has ever been involved in is just two hours away.

At around 10am (UK) the court will reconvene to announce the verdict in the case of RBS vs Tom Hicks and others, in Court 18 at the High Court in London.

Confidence this morning is growing that the court will rule in favour of RBS – and Liverpool FC. BBC Sport’s Dan Roan wrote on his Twitter:

On way to The Strand – reflecting on yesterday. Don’t see how RBS (&LFC) can lose. Hicks admits breach of contract and debt default does no favours.

Despite legal sideshows my sense is that Hicks and Gillett’s reign at Anfield has 2 hours left before Justice Floyd calls a halt.

The Telegraph’s Paul Kelso writes:

Judgement now expected at 10am. Predict ruling in favour of RBS with a twist. Still Qs about how NESV struck its deal.

Liverpool fans around the world are hoping Roan’s thoughts will prove true when the verdict is given shortly. The closing procedure may, though, take up to an hour in what is still a complicated legal case.

Fans have been writing on our forums and Twitter explaining how they are following the case online from wherever they are in the World. Stay tuned throughout the day for updates from This Is Anfield.
