UAE is a country that supported the 9/11 hijackers
Bony I have respect for all religions but try telling that to people who are already generalising about this Sheikh taking over Liverpool. All the old prejudices come running out and new ones are created.
I would love to see this takeover (should it go ahead) as not just an opportunity for Dubai International Capital to make an investment for marketing the company to the rest of the world (as I understand it to be – the Premiership is watched all round the world and having a team like Liverpool on DIC’s portfolio is good for them as well for us), but also for more fans of different cultures to come to the games and not stay away for fear of being victimised. John Barnes coming to Liverpool made the fans re-evaluate their racism towards black players. Perhaps this Sheikh can do the same for us.
