Principal owner John Henry was watching on television at home due to an illness but co-owner Tom Werner and newly appointed board executives David Ginsberg and Michael Gordon were on hand representing New England Sports Ventures for Liverpool's first home game since their purchase of the English club.

Sam Kennedy, chief executive of the Boston Red Sox, which is owned by NESV, was also on hand for the Reds' 2-1 win over Blackburn that moved them into a three-way tie for 16th place with Fulham and Blackburn.
