It is strikingly similar to a letter Red Sox president Larry Lucchino sent to season ticket holders at Major League Baseball's All-Star break. Both explain the team's strategy, both convey sympathy with fans, and both ask for their faith. Both express a commitment to winning.
Henry, however, appears to promise a championship.
"We will deliver what every long-term supporter of Liverpool Football Club aches for," Henry wrote.
One of Lucchino's closing lines was, "We want to play October Baseball this year."
According to The Independent, Liverpool fans were upset with Liverpool's inability to sign a new striker by Friday's transfer deadline while one of its own left the team.
"Friday's closure of the transfer window brought howls of criticism from disgruntled fans - still waiting for a decision on a new stadium -- after Brendan Rodgers's failure to secure a striker to replace misfit Andy Carroll, who was loaned out to West Ham 24 hours earlier," The Independent's Carl Markham wrote.
