Odd article. Liverpool's "committee" doesn't contain any of the club's ex-players.

I hope Utd do go down this route. Ex-players aren't necessarily great judges of which current players are the best fit.

Could lead to groupthink & too much of a focus on "PL-proven" players.

As I said on another thread, the Glazers haven't a clue when it comes to football.

They should be out there hiring a proven director of football, not Rio or Fletch. They may work out, but it's a stupid gamble.

Ole, Phelan & Carrick in the dugout. Novices like Fletcher & Rio being courted for roles like DoF.

Feels like Woodward wants to pack the club with Ferguson era faces to insulate himself from blame of things don't work out?

I’d seriously doubt he’s that cunning. More likely he hasn’t s clue when it comes to football. Jose and Louis have both hinted at it.

Wouldn't be surprised if Ferguson was lobbying for his ex-players behind the scenes.

Yeah United are doomed. Never going to win anything ever again.


Ferguson is reverse shit as well.



Sad to see Philby cant enjoy Liverpool's best ever second place season.

You sound agitated.

As your season is well over buddy maybe you'd be better off finding yourself a hobby to tide you through to the Europa League?

He could take up watching paint dry, if he can handle the excitement...

🤔
Have Liverpool won anything yet?
For a rich club, they seem to be falling behind. 30 years is a long time Philby! 😏
