That hipster bollocks was also used to pick Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager. [www.nytimes.com]
Jurgen Klopp had won the Bundesliga twice and taken Dortmund to a Champions League final before he went to Anfield. It doesn't take a spreadsheet to work out whether he may be a good manager or not.

With respect, I would imagine that deciding on a manager capable of taking a team like Liverpool to the next level from where they had been residing (from just below the top to the top) with a team core already in place requires more than just 'a good manager'. Personally, I'd go with hipster bollocks and spreadsheets for that task.

Harry being the case in point. If Harry had brought his own players in rather than had players foisted upon him by a clueless CEO and some dodgy agents then maybe things would turned out differently.

yeah yeah .... and we'd have won the Alternative Universe League at a canter and all fans would have been given a free unicorn

While I agree, the Liverpool team that Klopp inherited didn't have any of the key core players it has now.
Tell you what that crack is really moreish.

Yeah, we'd have been even worse off.

Didn't Harry want to pay Wilshere's wages in the Championship? We'd have been out of fecking business by now.

The best way a football club organises its transfer dealings is the Manager decides who he wants to buy and sell and the CEO/Chairman sorts the money out. Always has been the best way and always will be.


Even if it's Monk & Featherstone only signing players they represent and will profit from
They can profit from our dealings however they like as long as the players they bring in have a positive impact on the side. And, considering the restrictions imposed on him, Garry Monk had a good track record in the transfer market.

They’d have still been unfit. He’d have still been sacked. We’d have still failed FFP
It's worth remembering that the club (not Harry) brought in a couple of fitness gurus from Spain before the start of that pre-season, so you have to ask what they were doing.

However, we didn't pay/offer enough money to make sure that the bloke who assisted Harry at the back end of 2016/17 season stayed on thereafter.

1) Liverpool were lightyears away when Klopp came in from where they are now

2) The core of the side there now wasn't in place when he arrived, that is just nonsense.

If you need a spreadsheet to figure out whether a bloke who has won two successive league titles in Germany with an unfancied side may be any good or not as a manager then good for you.

Yes, no question.

Harry is a fraud and a dinosaur.

They were signing players for their own benefit, not the clubs.

If players a manager signs are playing well how does that not benefit the club?

Well we didn't get the chance to judge them together any longer.

I still think the Harry thing would have worked had he had Cotterill working day to day on the training ground. Common sense said that Harry wasn't gonna to be coaching at Wast Hills day in, day out. The Board should have made sure Cotterill stuck around as assistant (or employed a coach just as experienced in his stead as a replacement) or not appointed Harry at all.

Its been widely reported that Bellingham & Bailey were both on the verge of leaving as Monk would not pick them due to having the 'wrong' agent.

If you think that sort of behaviour is acceptable, then I can't help you.
