Liverpool

Debt levels at Anfield have plummeted since the 2008/09 season. Previous owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks took control of the club in February 2007 and everything looked bright. However, disagreements between the pair forced them to sell the club and the increasing debt, with current owner John W. Henry, from the Fenway Sports Group, taking over.

Since his acquisition of the club, Henry has managed to stabilise the finances at Anfield while spending big money on big players including top goalscorer Luis Suarez. Under current boss Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool are on their way back to becoming a force in England and competing in Europe where their passionate supporters from around the world feel they belong. The club won the last of their five European Cups in 2005 and their last trophy - the League Cup in 2012.
