Thought I'd ask something different for a change, what are people's thoughts on the change in the back pass rule 25 years ago, Do you think it had a part to play in liverpools decline?

{Ed025's Note - no mate, liverpools decline is down to the perennial recruitment of mediocre players..

I don't know how I don't know why but it has something to do with beach balls.

Spot on Ed - selling top talent for prospects or hopefuls, which is why if Pipco leaves we need to fix that.

The decline must correlate in some way to lack of quality scouting and signing. I can't help but think it all gone wrong since we lost Geoff Twentyman as our main scout.

Spot on ED025 - when you look at the players we have signed in the recent past, and how many misses there have been compared to hits, it is obvious were the problem lies. We have, for many years, recruited poorly in comparison to our rivals, and it has left us short of the required quality. We seem to be addressing this issue but, should Coutinho leave, it will smack of a feeling of 'more of the same'. As discussed in another thread if we signed Mbappe it would certainly cushion the blow (though it is never going to happen) .

{Ed025's Note - i cant see it either seano but you have to speculate to accumulate mate and you are a bit short to be contenders i feel..

I agree ED, I think top 4 is well within reach but still think the quality is not quite there to challenge for the title - we will see though, big teams failing to fulfill their potential has been a recent trend (Arsenal, United last season; Chelsea, United the season before) so there may be a few shocks in store yet - I just hope we aren't one of the teams who nose dive.

I think it is entirely down to the change in the back pass rule. Every other club has somehow managed to take this rule and learn to live with it but I just think we've struggled. Maybe another 25 years and we'll get over it.
