I need 100 Liverpool Fans

As some of you may know I am a third year student studying for my MSc (Masters Degree) in Management. My third and final year requires me to write my dissertation. I have chosen to study and write about the ownership of our football club.

I’m sure you are already aware of the many ‘rumblings’ about our owners. It is fair to say that fans generally tend to fall into being pro, neutral or anti our current owners. While my dissertation will deal with sporting companies in general it will focus heavily on Liverpool Football Club. I therefore plan to provide a copy of my research, findings and full dissertation to the club. So I guess this is an opportunity to ‘have your say’.

I need to ensure that only Liverpool fans complete the research survey so I have had to take some additional steps. Initially I would like you to email me (jonny_miller_bear@hotmail.com) with your name, age, city/country, number of years you have supported the club and (if available) your twitter username. I will then, within 48 hours, mail you back with a password and link to complete the survey. Alternatively you can leave a comment below and I should pick up your email address from that.

Following completion of the survey I will (if you haven’t objected during the poll) contact a small number of respondents with some additional questions. Once I have collated all of my data I hope to have several telephone or email interviews with experts in the field of football business and Liverpool Football Club. David Conn (an author and writer for the Guardian) has already agreed and I hope to get a few more on board.

If you would like an emailed copy of the final report please indicate so on your initial email. It should be available from May 2010. I will also keep you up to speed through my blog on any developments from the club, should there be any.
