It seems supporters of Liverpool have been inspired by the way Barack Obama harnessed the power of the internet to reach the White House in 2008.
By using social media sites, blogs, viral email campaigns and online video, the then US presidential candidate generated a massive network of supporters via cyberspace. Now the Anfield faithful are attempting to do something similar as the club's ownership saga reaches a crucial moment.
With the mid-October deadline looming for Royal Bank of Scotland, Liverpool's main creditor, to decide whether to take control of the club from Tom Hicks and George Gillett, fans are intensifying their campaign to oust the American owners.
By using the internet to mobilise 'fan power' and lobby financial institutions who may be in a position to help Hicks and Gillett stay in control at Anfield, supporters hope to force a sale and have a significant say in the future direction of the club.
