The shareholders and other supporters in the Anfield camp are wondering whether Danny Kirkwood has been demobilised yet, and whether he could be persuaded to join the Liverpool board. What a grand asset he would be!
The syndicate “over the way,” with its dying breath, admitted that the greatest mistake it ever made was to out-vote with proxies his re-election to the Everton board after fifteen years’ work, unparalleled to the history of the club.
To parody Shakespeare: – “The evil that the syndicate did lives after them.”
