    This debate is about our club.

    We can't do anything about the corruption in FIFA...but we can let the owners know how we feel about being associated with certain companies and organisations.

    As for FIFA...well...**** them.

    Its not bout the Chinese, it is about the public face of LFC. The image of the club will be tainted with this deal, it suggests that LFC is in full agreement with the staus quo, if not, the deal would not go ahead.

    Yes, lots of companies are corrupt and lots of regimes are abusive, but in this case it's our club and we can try to put pressure on them not to support the abuse or corruption.

    This is one sponsorship deal we can do without.
    It runs contrary to the spirit of this great club and could well result in tarnishing the image of the club.
    Or will it be YNWA unless the Chinese march in and suppress all human rights including the right to walk anywhere
    then you are on your own.
