Hi Ed1, I was wondering if you could give your opinion on how the club can set up to maintain the progress we have seen over the last few seasons, what steps do you think need to be made now for a future when klopp moves on and just like shanks handing the torch to Paisley and again to Fagan etc. Too many times (man utd for example) we see clubs with aging squads being left to new managers to rebuild. Can liverpool put the steps in place now to avoid having to continuously rebuild from scratch and how do successful clubs go about this? Is it a case of adding just the right amount of youth or perhaps adding players only when needed?

{Ed001's Note - the key is to pick the right men to run things. It doesn't matter how good the youth is etc if you are being run by the likes of Rick Parry. Edwards seems, so far, to be a big step forward in that respect, but only time will tell on that. When Klopp goes, finding the right man to take over is going to be the difference between the club progressing and not. It is all about having the right leadership.}

Spot on, Ed01. I might add that time is of the essence, IMO. Klopp may be gone in 2 plus years BUT the work to keep progressing after he leaves should start now, IMO. If Edwards is the guy then he should be prepped to take over or expand his portfolio if need be. As per the coaching replacement, I would go with Ljinders (if we wanted to go with a younger manager) cos he would have been here since Klopp arrived and is his trusted assistant who knows the academy and senior squad inside-out. The leadership must be on point cos if it isn't then, we will be another utd, unfortunately. We owe it to Klopp to keep progressing, IMO.

{Ed001's Note - I think Ljinders would be the right choice, as things stand. Not just does he understand the club and had involvement from top to bottom, but he has also been elsewhere to learn about the game, giving his own perspective, views and ideas. However, we don't know who would go when Klopp goes and we might have to replace a whole slew of staff.}

On the positive side, the club as a proposition for a new coach will be so much more attractive than it was when Klopp took over although, of course, added expectation will be greater too.
How long do you see FSG staying at Liverpool Ed?
When Klopp does leave it will hopefully be with a PL title to add to the CL, expanded ground, new training facility, buoyant revenues. All being the high watermark of FSG’s reign and a possible point at which to sell?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any interest in selling up from FSG. Henry does it because he loves sports and wants to win, it is not about money, it is a hobby to him and the other owners in the group.}

Is it a worry that klopp wins the league this season and resigns with the garden rosey as appose to a year or two later when he might've gone a year or two down a barron patch?

1st world problems eh Jezza? Normal human psychology, when you don’t have it you crave it. Then when you get it you spend most of your time worrying about losing it rather than just enjoying it.
I don’t know how long Klopp will be with us but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the ride so far and I’ll keep enjoying it until he goes. Then and only then will I worry about who will take over after him.
