Not long after klopp made his announcement I had a small wager on Gary O’Neil being announced as the new manager! I’d definitely prefer him to a lot of the names being touted about, I’d rather give him a couple of seasons and potentially wait for xabi, I 100% understand his decision to stay at Bayern and admire the loyalty he is showing, guaranteed next season will be far more difficult than this. I can see Edward’s and the new S. D going for an up and coming British manager with premier league experience.

Xabi will be going Real Madrid so we would be waiting a long long time am afraid!

23 Apr 2024 10:04:44
He hasn’t done anything at Bournemouth or Wolves. Easy pass surely.

23 Apr 2024 10:05:17
Of the managers we've been linked with who working in premiership at min, de zerbi, frank etc i would pick o neill ahead of them as well.

23 Apr 2024 10:09:07
The prpblem is the structure, Amirom wants to be involved in the transfer dealing and Edwards and Hughes wouldn't allow it, Plus there is a 30 mill euros in compensation and I doubt FSG have an interest in paying that sum.

23 Apr 2024 10:15:51
I'm getting worrying vibes that it might be De Zerbi you know. If Amorim is being courted by West Ham as the media are suggesting then it sounds to me like we aren't actively pursuing him (IMO no-one with any sense would even speak to WH if Liverpool wanted a chat) .

23 Apr 2024 10:23:56
No idea or inside knowledge obviously but if Liverpool don’t give Amorim the kind of role he wants and west ham does, then why would he continue with us?

23 Apr 2024 10:47:01
Simple answer Faith - compromise. If a manager prefers WH to Liverpool purely because of the underlying management structure then good luck to him, he's on a hiding to nothing there with no CL football and zero chance of winning anything in the next 5 years. Moyes deserves the freedom of London for winning the trophy last season.

Onekiss- how much better at wolves or Bournemouth do you think klopp or guardiola would have done?

23 Apr 2024 11:21:15
Sounds a bit high horse to me.
It’s a tough job to be in if you put aside a fundamental part of how you want to manage.
Much better to walk away and take another project.

Digger10, that is a VERY low bar though.

I think that’s an irrelevant point Jaydee, Klopp was hired because going down the Brendan Rodgers route failed spectacularly, so we appointed the best man for the job who had not only a track record of actual success and winning titles, but doing so as the underdog. Due respect to O’Neill but managing Bournemouth, Wolves and our U23’s isn’t really comparable.

23 Apr 2024 12:26:29
Viktorvaughn - had the players under Rodgers not bottled at the final stage like we appear to be doing again this year then klopp has only won one more title than Rodgers did in almost a decade of being manager.

23 Apr 2024 12:33:38
Jaydee, Wolves and Bournemouth went from mid table to mid table under O’Neill. Howe done better at Bournemouth and Nuno done better at Wolves and neither of them should be getting a Liverpool job. Pep and Klopp are two of the greatest managers of course they’d have done better there. We’ve tried these types of managers with Rodgers and Hodgson before. We need someone who knows how to win titles.

23 Apr 2024 13:03:29
Onekiss - just for clarity let me make it crystal clear I’m not hoping for o’Niel as our next manager I’m saying it’s plausible, your last statement is flawed however as all of houlier Benitez daglish souness Hodgson and Rodgers have also won titles, and in the last 32 years only houllier Benitez and Rodgers have managed to finish second, Klopps done one better once.
Exited to see who we get and whoever it will be will get my 100% support but it’s clear nobody has a clue who it will be at this stage which seems to be the Edward’s way.

23 Apr 2024 13:05:07
What about Andoni Iraola?

I wonder who recruited him at Bournemouth!?!

23 Apr 2024 13:12:05
Jaydee, I can’t remember us winning a title under Rodgers.

Klopp has also won a champions league, world club championship and every other trophy possible. He’s also been up against a club owned by a nation state with unlimited funds and been competitive, we’ve missed out by fine margins.

Rodgers had one good year and he still failed in that one good year. We literally fell apart and Rodgers was shown for the fraud he is when Suarez left.

Replacing a bonafide world class manager with a mid table manager on the basis of potential and who hasn’t won anything is a ridiculous risk which will likely go horribly wrong and take years to recover from.

23 Apr 2024 13:31:06
Iraola, guess we’re looking to consolidate that mid table position next year then.

23 Apr 2024 13:46:50
It's alright talking about getting managers with titles behind them and all the rest but once alonso decided to stay at leverkusan i don't think the list of managers available is too great. In fact its decidedly average the pool available. Amorion seemed next best but I'd say 90% of lfc fans didn't know who he was 6 months ago. Slot the same.
Always going to be an outrageous task to replace klopp anyway but at this minute in time there ain't much about.

23 Apr 2024 14:55:00
What mid table position, Vik?
We are second.

23 Apr 2024 14:57:53
@ViktorVaughan Seems to have been turned down for the LFC Sporting Director role.

Richard Hughes and his gigabytes of of analysis might be better qualified.
