Voice of the ECHO: Reds fans deserve truth.
Unsurprisingly, it is claimed it is just a 'short-term' delay.
But many supporters, and even experienced analysts, will suspect it is, in truth, a clear indication that controversial American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett simply don't have the financial clout to build it at all.
They have already piled their own personal debts - including a crushing pounds 30mannual interest bill - onto the club and, in turn, its supporters.
Today's news is bound to lead to renewed calls for them to go.
Particularly if they do not have the money or the methods to take one of the world's greatest football clubs forward.
Who can blame the overwhelming majority of fans for wanting rid of them?
It's well known Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai, the world's fifth-richestman, remains keen to buy the club from them.
Everyone who has Liverpool FC's best interest at heart surely now feels that is the best option.
This week, ordinary fans joined Liverpool legends Phil Thompson, John Barnes and John Aldridge and academic expert Dr Rogan Taylor at a public meeting called by Share Liverpool FC and the Spirit of Shankly group to demand the Americans leave.
Liverpool has had enough.
If today's news really does mean the owners can't give Kopites the stadium they deserve and dream of, then why not just admit it?
Then the club - and all concerned with it - can move on.
