Do The Liverpool Owners Secretly Despise Each Other?

According to the Times Liverpool’s chief executive Rick Parry has leapt all over the rumours that American owner fat-cats George Gillett Jr and Tom Hicks, have had a series of slanging matches – Parry is denying this point blank. And whenever anyone denies anything point blank, jumping on a story like a ravenous animal – one suspects that there might be some sliver of truth to the original tale…
Yesterday Parry told supporters that:

“I have just spent a couple of days with Tom and George, both of them were in good spirits, working hard together on their future plans for the club. I don’t normally comment on these things, but on the basis of what I have just seen, the story in one of the Sunday papers claiming there was some sort of problem between the two couldn’t be wider of the mark. It’s absolute nonsense.”

Methinks you doth protest too much Mr Parry! Trouble in paradise for Liverpool’s Yank supremos or press waffle?
