Tom Hicks Jr and missus – they look like fun fun fun
Tom Hicks Junior has bowed to intense pressure – notably from the ever-active Spirit of Shankly supporters’ group – to resign from the Liverpool FC board following his abusive email to a fan in an argument over Rafael Benitez’s transfer budget (or lack of it).
The son of Liverpool co-owner Tom Sr was forced to quit as a director of Liverpool and parent company Kop Holdings, having replied to an email from LFC supporter Stephen Horner with the following lines: “Blow me f*** face. Go to hell. I’m sick of you.”
I suppose that’s an example of famous Texan charm? Mini Hicks also referred to Horner as an “idiot”. Way to fix the broken relationship between your family and Liverpool supporters, Tom Jr.
