Apparently Amorim has flew into London on a private jet to start talks with West Ham.

If Amorim goes to West Ham that just means we don't want him.

He’s probably seen the FSG transfer budget and thought I’m off to an ambitious club owner.

Carra is an imbecile at the best of times. Let’s hope he’s as wrong about this as he is most other things. De Zerbi would be a disaster.

Alonso and Amorim were my first choice. I’ll be honest, I’m not keen on De Zerbi or the other names mentioned. But I have a feeling that we might go with De Zerbi. Tactically he is very good, which you only have to see the brand of football they were playing before this season. And the way managers, not to mention players past and present speak about him. It’s his combative nature that I’m worried about. I will have to trust Edwards as he has brought in players not so favoured who turned out to be brilliant for us. If it is De Zerbi, maybe he will be the same.

If we get De Zerbi I’m sure going to miss some posters next season and I’m sure YouTube will miss them also.

I’d be De Zerbi out from the start. Some people have no business being at the club, much like Diouff, Hodgson or Rodgers. De Zerbi would be a huge failure.

Tbh if Amorim is out of the frame, why not just take a punt on Stevie G, would rather him than a 3rd choice. Maybe Jose was at fulham yesterday as an advisor for Amorim but can't see em going for jose mouriniho.

{Ed025's Note - seriously...Gerrard????..

If a manager prefers West Ham over Liverpool then there’s absolutely no way I would want him managing our club. Even contemplating West Ham over Liverpool would show that the person has no idea at all about what Liverpool is all about.

Not saying I necessarily believe the gossip about Amorim, more talking in general terms about a person’s suitability to manage our club.

It’s the lure of London
His wife is a designer I think so probably thinking about her business interests too

And - he may have more say in transfers at Wet Spam plus a bigger transfer budget.

WDW if we’ve told Amorim we’re no longer interested in him as our first and are looking at other options (including failures like Kovac), then he has every right to look at any job he wants. Should he wait around for us to change our mind? To me it sounds like we might have messed him around or annoyed Sporting (again), both of which are very probable given our previous.

It's hilarious how Victor takes assumptions and runs with them as facts. There's been nothing concrete regarding Amorim and Liverpool except for a couple of random Portuguese journalists and he's just made the jump to we've messes him around.

Jose special Mourinho was at the Fulham game, fuelling a bit of gossip on social media about being manager . I would have took a prime Jose. but think his time is done at top flight . I loved him years ago, him against the world etc but the man got results.

The Sporting President reckons he can persuade Amorim to stay.
There’s usually something in it when they say that.

I wouldn’t call Ornstein a “random Portuguese journalist”, Thunderbird, he initially said that Amorim was our main choice after Alonso laughed at the possibility of becoming manager. Ornstein has now said Amorim is very unlikely that he will now join too which does raise questions as to IF that’s true, why would it be unlikely that one of the best young managers wouldn’t be in the frame. Also, Ed002 was the one who reported our self inflicted issues with Sporting after our unseemly business with Ugarte, so it’s not beyond the realms of probability that our poor relationship with Sporting would impact our ability to recruit Amorim. Also you may wish to take some English comprehension lessons as I didn’t state it as fact, I merely speculated. This is a rumours site after all.

Ornstein has never once said Amorim was our main choice, he's never stuck his neck on the line regarding any potential candidate being first choice. Another mistruth Viktor.

To openly state you would be De Zerbi out from day one is a reflection on yourself, not the manager.
We all have opinions and preferences on players and managers but once they're in they get a chance and our full support until they show us otherwise.

The changing if the guard after such a successful period, not just in terms of on the pitch but also in terms of the fans connection to the team, was always going to be difficult. We all just need to get behind the team regardless of who comes in, any 'manager out' talk or banners will simply make it a harder and longer process, look at United.

23.) 23 Apr 2024
23 Apr 2024 06:53:18
Ahhh Anfield Andy the classic “let’s just get behind the team” comment means we’re not if we want what’s best for our club. De Zerbi will be another Rodgers a cheap FSG option who will try and be tactical and shrewd rather than going for quality. We’ve struggled to win one league with Klopp, we won’t get close to any under him. Welcome back to mediocrity folks.

“De Zerbi will be another Rodgers a cheap FSG option”

What does this even mean?

Klopp earns a huge salary at the club which shows they will pay salaries for managers.

Also ed002 has said already on here that the club won’t have an issue paying the salaries of Amorim or other managers.

28.) 23 Apr 2024
23 Apr 2024 10:05:32
I find it interesting that the bookies still have Amorim as the favourite to be the next Liverpool manager. His odds have obviously lengthened given what is happening but he is still much shorter odds than Slot as second favourite!

29.) 23 Apr 2024

After doing some reading, I think Arnie Slot would be very good. Plays beautiful attacking football and a real personality. Clearly very highly rated and in demand.

Ed002, there was mention of release clause available this summer but he then signed a new contract. Do you know what the situation is now?

After winning the cup and Feyenoord almost guaranteed to finish second, perhaps an agreement can be firmed up quickly. Surely this would helpful to affirm summer transfer targets.

. probably more twists to come.

{Ed002's Note - The release clause was removed so Feyenoord can demand whatever they want.}

@Victor, you - like the rest of us - don’t have the first clue what is happening behind the scenes. You’re basically putting forward assumptions and opinions as fact. That’s ok, everybody is entitled to their say. The thing is, if you offer your opinion on a discussion site, you have to be prepared for some people, in this case me, thinking that your opinion is incorrect.

32.) 23 Apr 2024
23 Apr 2024 12:11:50
@TheBeeKeeper - there are tablets you can take for that.

@Frode do you think Klopp was / is a cheap option? Do you think it’s FSG’ fault that Klopp has decided he has given all he can give? Do you think it’s FSG’s fault that Alonso want’s to stay where he is and give the CL a crack next season with a squad / club / fan base that is right behind him? Do you think that it’s FSG’s fault that the quality of other potential candidates isn’t up to your exacting standards? Making out it) s FSG’s fault is complete rubbish.

33.) 23 Apr 2024
23 Apr 2024 12:54:04
WDW, I would say it’s FSG’s fault if they get it wrong, like they did with Rodgers. By the sounds of it it’s not going well if we’re entertaining applications and talking to the likes of Fonseca and Kovac, both of whom are utterly hopeless and would be out of their depth. As would De Zerbi, Frank or Gerrard.

{Ed002's Note - FSG take advice from those with more appropriate knowledge.}

Not at all Frode. Everyone should have an opinion now, but once that decision is made get behind the team and give the new guy time. We know that no one realistically has any major impact for at 6 months. I couldn't stand being a 2 or 3 managers in the space of 2 seasons kind of club.
