Hicks To UEFA: Suck It

Tom Hicks calls UEFA's William Gaillard "a clown" for blaming Liverpool FC fans for the ticketing problems at the Champions League final. Speaking to Sky Sports, Hicks said: "UEFA did not handle this right at all. To give 17,000 tickets to the two teams, particularly knowing Liverpool is going to bring 40,000 fans is insane." Summing Gaillard up, Hicks said: "I think it is a classic case of a bureaucrat trying to take pressure off himself." There may still be some of those in the UK who don't like a "wealthy Texan" owning their team, but mixing it up with Gaillard should win him a few fans.
