I speak on behalf of the Shankly family when I say that we are wholeheartedly behind The Spirit Of Shankly. - Karen Gill, March 2008

The ruling of the Court Case, challenging the Boards decision to sell the club, is taking place at the Royal Courts of Justice tomorrow, Wednesday 13th October 2010. It is listed to start at 10:00am in Court 16. Following the events of the first day of the court case, it is clear that Tom Hicks and George Gillett are still trying to do whatever they can to cling on to any part of the club, whether that be through bending the truth or outright lies. Spirit of Shankly feel we need to make a dignified and organised appearance at the Courts. We do not propose to scream and shout at faceless people in suits, but we feel it is important that we are represented by members at what could be a very important event in the chapter of Liverpool Football Clubs recent history.
As a result, we will be laying on a coach to take those wishing to attend from Liverpool. Due to the early start the coach will leave from outside the Liverpool Empire Theatre at 4:00am, and from the Rocket at 4:20am. The coach will be free of charge, and places will be allocated on first come, first served basis. We ask that you only reserve a place if you are certain you can make it, given the demand.
We are aware that the 7/7 Bombing Inquest is also being held at the Royal Courts this week, and will be attended by grieving relatives. As Liverpool fans will appreciate, this Inquest will be a raw and very emotional time for relatives, as the circumstances of their loved ones deaths will be recounted, and we urge people to show the families our respect while making our feelings about the ownership of Liverpool Football Club known to the media, the courts and Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
