Hicks and Gillett lift restraining order
Tom Hicks and George Gillett have lifted the Texas court restraining order preventing the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) from completing the sale of Liverpool and have completed a deal with Mill Financial in order to pay off the £280 million debt.
Hicks has already signed a deal with Mill Financial - an arm of US hedge fund Springfield Financial Company, based in Virginia, which already owns Gillett's 50% of the club after he defaulted on payments two months ago - to pay the £237 million debt owed to RBS, which has now risen with penalty fees.
If RBS agree to take the money, Mill Financial would effectively become the owners of Liverpool and the move would scupper the New England Sports Ventures (NESV) takeover, but board approval would be needed for Hicks to sell his shares - which of course would be rejected by a margin of three to two.
Therefore, Hicks has agreed a refinancing deal for Mill to pay the RBS debt, with an agreement put in place for repayment at a later date. Indications are, though, that RBS has been advised by their legal team against accepting Mill Financial's offer.
ESPNsoccernet also understands NESV has a banker's draft ready to dispatch to RBS before the 1700 BST deadline on Friday to erase any lingering concerns about Liverpool going into administration, but their hopes of owning the club are hinged on the bank refusing to sanction any payment from Mill and Hicks.
Very sad that Liverpool have such owners, no pride and dignity

Hicks & Gillett back down to pursue $1.6m claim
Tom Hicks and George Gillett have admitted defeat in their bid to hold on to Liverpool as the Royal Bank of Scotland rejected the owners' pledge to pay off its debts.
The American duo will now pursue a damages claim of $1.6 billion for what they described as an "epic swindle" and the path is clear for New England Sports Ventures (NESV) to take control of the club.
A statement from Hicks and Gillett's camp read: ''Hicks and Gillett withdraw TRO (temporary restraining order) blocking sale of Liverpool Football Club. Action prevents RBS from needlessly putting Club into administration. RBS rejected owners' pledge to pay off all debts by October 15. Attorneys say ludicrous, self-serving and illegal behavior from directors and outsiders to hinder Club for years.
"It's an extraordinary swindle and it will result in exactly the wrong thing for the Club and the fans."
Those were the words used by attorneys representing Liverpool Football Club owners this morning when they announced they would apply all of their legal energies toward securing at least $1.6 billion in damages they expect will result from the proposed illegal sale of the Liverpool Football Club.
Attorneys also stated that protracted litigation concerning the Liverpool transaction will now cause even more uncertainty for the LFC.
"This outcome not only devalues the Club but it also will result in long-term uncertainty for the fans, players and everyone who loves this sport because all legal recourses will be pursued," said Steve Stodghill, the Texas attorney representing the Liverpool owners. "Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett pledged to pay the debt to RBS so that the Club could avoid administration that was threatened by RBS. That offer was rejected. It is a tragic development that others will claim as a victory. This means it won't be resolved the way it should be resolved. My clients worked tirelessly to resolve these issues but RBS would not listen to any reasonable solution and the Directors acted selfishly and illegally."
Stodghill said the owners have no choice but to pursue every legal avenue possible, and they will.
"Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett wanted to position this club for the future PUI!!!, but others have a different agenda," said Stodghill. "In truth, there is nothing positive from these events for Liverpool Football. That is exactly the opposite of what my clients wanted to achieve. "
"But Hicks and Gillett say they will "pursue every legal avenue" to claim damages for what they believe is an "extraordinary swindle"."
It feels like daylight robbery doesn't it? Well, its been like that for the last 3 years, nice to know that now they know how it feels
Liverpool completed sales!!!!!

NESV announce final deal for Liverpool FC
John W Henry will be Liverpool's new owner having finally secured the £300 million takeover of the club in time to take his place at the weekend's Merseyside derby, insiders have informed ESPNsoccernet.
Henry now plans to bring back the "passion, dedication and professionalism" to Liverpool and most importantly a "winning culture'' once the deal is signed and sealed.
Henry was told of the news on Friday that Tom Hicks and George Gillett had 'folded' in their bid to cling onto the club, and would be now pursuing only a legal action for £1 billion ($1.6 billion) damages - which will be rigorously defended in court.
ESPNsoccernet was informed that Henry was naturally happy to have fought off the late attempts by Hicks and Gillett to remain in power and a statement confirmed the purchase.
When the owners of the Boston Red Sox first signed a deal to buy Liverpool, they made it clear their intentions to transform the club, slowly, quietly but efficiently.
A spokesman for Henry and the New England group commented: "NESV wants to create a long-term financially solid foundation for Liverpool FC and is dedicated to ensuring that the club has the resources to build for the future, including the removal of all acquisition debt.
"Our objective is to stabilize the club and ultimately return Liverpool FC to its rightful place in English and European football, successfully competing for and winning trophies.
"Since 2001, New England Sports Ventures has made successful investments in sports and entertainment properties. Our portfolio of companies, including the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park, New England Sports Network, Fenway Sports Group and Roush Fenway Racing are all committed to one common goal: winning.
"NESV wants to help bring back the culture of winning to Liverpool FC. We have a proven track record, shown clearly with the Boston Red Sox. The team has won two World Series Championships over the past six years. We will bring the same kind of openness, passion, dedication and professionalism to Liverpool FC."
Hopefully a new chapter for us
