Liverpool’s principal owner John W. Henry has been bombarded by tweets from fans at the club’s lack of transfer activity.
The billionaire tweeted about New England Patriots’ record in the Super Bowl ahead of the 51st installment of the fixture.
The Patriots went on to beat Atlanta Falcons 34-28 to claim their fifth title.
Henry tweeted: “Patriots are in their seventh Super Bowl in the past 16 seasons. Falcons are the sixth opponent the Patriots will face in those appearances.”
Liverpool fans were quick to reply to the tweet, with most fans wanting the same thing – money to be spent on the club.

Following the defeat to Hull on Saturday, Liverpool were disappointed with the defeat and how the season has fizzled out so quickly.
And some have vented their anger towards the Liverpool owner.

Jurgen Klopp said that he had the owners’ backing to splash the cash in January , but he insisted it was “pretty difficult” to land his top targets during the transfer window.
One Liverpool fan replied to the tweet with two words that keep reappearing.
