Ed002, if I may, given today's news ask you your opinion with a few questions.

1. For me, DOF should now be the first priority with Schmadtke leaving. The DOF should be involved in the decision making process of manager IMO. Do you think the club will prioritise this appointment first?

2. I know you've provided a list before but I believe it's been some time ago. Can you remind us of the candidates again for DOF?

3. Out of these realistic candidates, could you kindly advise who you think would be the best choice?

Fully realised this is a large amount of information requested and appreciate any thoughts you are willing to provide when you have time to do so.


{Ed002's Note - 1. I agree Davy. The person the club wanted is not interested and moving elsewhere. Another approached had no interest. But it needs addressing.
2. The list has dwindled rather and the club could look to extending Schmadtke a further year. Tiago Pinto would have been a good option but no. Rui Pedro Braz would be a great option but I expect him to heald elsewhere.
3. Rui Pedro Braz.}

Isn't Gordon also wanting to retire, Ed? Could we look a sporting CEO type role with a seat on the board? Would that not open up the quality of options?

Also, might FSG call on Edwards to help?

{Ed002's Note - (1) No. (2) Edwards has other priorities now.}

Hi ed2.

Always appreciate your insight. Is there a reason that perceived top DOFs aren’t interested in working at Liverpool? I would have thought it an attractive proposition for most?

{Ed002's Note - One was waiting on a job elsewhere, and the other had a concern about saying yes to the offer so stepped away.}

Thanks, Ed.

Very interesting Ed and thanks for the response.

Out of interest, do you think the candidates who turned it down, is it possible either could become interested again without Klopp?

Klopp is such a powerful figure in the club, it would have been tough to overrule him so much. As such, a sporting director would find it tougher to implement their thoughts more.

For the fans, I would keep Klopp over any Sporting director ten more years. I'm just simply trying to look at this from a sporting directors point of view.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is nothing to do with Klopp.}

Thanks Ed. You are awesome. Appreciate the feedback.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Ed002 - Was the one we wanted paul Mitchell?
Is he off to United?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing to do with Paul Mitchell.}

Fair enough ed002, who were we interested in?

{Ed002's Note - It has moved on now.}
