Someone to make the club more money.

It's great mate hire someone with no football experience but make more money for the owner great banter.

{Ed002's Note - It is not a like-for-like replacement, the club has restructured the management and responsibilities with Mike Gordon being very much the focal point.}

Hi ed002

Apart from input into recruitment, in what other ways will Moore's role differ to Ayre's?

{Ed002's Note - His focus will be very much the global off field business and he won't deal with the players, their agents, the contracts and he won't have any involvement in the transfer dealings with other clubs.}

I know and agree that's stats should always be taken with a pinch of salt. Having said that, they can be a good starting point for discussion, and with that in mind, did anyone else see the sky sports article that "found" January statistically our worst month since the premier league started? That surprised me. I would have picked november. Remember loads of them where we totally went off the boil

Is this meant to be sarcastic? Also genuinely think this whole plan b think is utter nonsense. You can't have a team of players ready and prepared to play two entirely different styles of play. Don't get me wrong can have a team be more offensive or defensive but in terms of playing two different styles of play don't see how it works.

For example at our best we play a high pressuring team, that relies on having 3 rotating CF and a mobile midfield capable of moving the ball quickly, whilst playing a high line defensively. where this supposed plan b would require; a CF who was the focal point of the attack with either wingers and/ or a midfield to feed of them or attackers to play off them. where playing high line (which would be suicide due to the amount of times you'd lose the ball or at least two defensive minded CM to compensate) . Meaning would literally need two teams of 11 capable of playing two entirely different styles, plus subs.

For me, will hold my hand up and say I was wrong. Thought we had a great squad with high fitness levels. However, we seem to have a fantastic starting XI when fully fit, that massively suffers when 1 player goes missing (eg; mane, matip, coutinho, firminho, Henderson, etc. ) that currently look exhausted.

I was wondering if the eds could provide some insight into the actual role of the captain in modern day football. So much is made of it, but exactly how necessary are they? Of course they can be an example to younger kids/ players and a leader on the pitch, but surely any senior can be, and often is that. Is there more behind the scenes aspects to it, or is the role more these days a focal point for the media?

Mainly the renting of hotel rooms, buying of prostitutes, supplying champagne and laughing gas, and setting up the camera.

Roland he was asking the role of a captain not donald trumps campaign manager.

Lol waqas.

I get the concern over bloated squad, but there will certainly be departures. The only question is who and when.
What I think klopp is trying to do is give us options. Too many times over the last season or two, you would like at the bench and see only like for like replacements. The signings so far seem an attempt to offer different options, the ability to have players that will help a change of tactics or formation rather than shoehorning people into roles they don't suit.
I still think the kids will play a role. There's just no way they will be introduced en
masse. They will be drip fed game time, given opportunities. The onus is on them to grab them and run with them, both in matches and in training.

question for the eds.

how often, if at all, does being way on international duty effect player decisions on who to sign for? as in, they get friendly with someone whilst there and try and engineer a move to their team? or vice versa, a player mentions to his manager someone would be interested in moving to their team after a chat they had whilst in the international set up? or can players be sent in with agendas from their club manager to do a bit of a "sell" on their club or to sound them out if they would fancy moving to them?

hope that makes sense.

I thought Coutinho probably helped put in a good word for us last year at Copa, which led to a quick deal for Firmino. Could be wrong, though.

His play time doesn't tell the whole story BR. He was benched for the first part of the season and it was only injuries that brought him into a starting berth. He was not great for quite a while, with only perhaps the last quarter of the season showing any kind of good form.

Calm down ed. Its nothing of the sort. I absolutely know 100% that Liverpool were at fault in their dealings a few months ago. The situation I was referring to was vvd's earlier unrest.

Isn't there an element of saints bringing this situation on themselves somewhat? Didn't I read something about saints' treatment of another player causing some unrest amongst the team?

I hope we don't get rid. A loan maybe, yes, but its way too early to sell.

I downvoted cos I don't believe you and this is clearly a smoke screen for the imminent arrival of Arda turan.

I don't think so. Costa looks like a pug. Solanke, not so much.

Every transfer window has examples of club a chasing player that club b refuses to sell putting in numerous offers until, one way or another, club a get their man. Also examples where they don't too. You don't know if its a waste of time until the window closes.
