      Seems Klopp taking a more hands on approach . Maybe looking at changing our model slightly

      There seems to be a lot of changes in the recruitment team. Mike Gordon stepping back from his role (to focus on club's sale) and club doctor (Jim Moxon) left in the summer and is yet to be replaced. There are reports that Ian Graham (director of research) could also leave.

      I wonder why this is happening and what it means.

      Got to admit I am spilt being excited and a bit worried if I am honest seems to be some disconnect between levels and obvious uncertainty around sale or investment of the club .

      But Ward just took over this past summer after being trained by Edwards last year. Strange situation.

      Slowly but surely its all coming apart at the seams isn't it. Have we recruited a head doctor yet? Penny for Jurgens thoughts

      I don’t see this as a good thing, honesty. A coach is great when he is brilliant tactically and can get his team playing well all on the same page. Most coaches are not the best evaluators of talent and especially aren’t great at building a team when dealing with monetary constraints. It’s always best the ensure that everyone is on the same page down the line, while at the same time keeping a bit of separation between coaches and management. Input from coaches should be greatly valued, but I pause when hear a coach is going to be given more power in personnel decisions.

      Well he didn’t last long, had big shoes to fill after Edwards, maybe the club decided he wasn’t up to it.

      This is not a positive bit of news. Losing Ward (the trainee) after Edwards (the master) isn't good.
      Hopefully, that'll leave him with some time to train the 3rd generation, so to speak.

      Well he didn’t last long, had big shoes to fill after Edwards, maybe the club decided he wasn’t up to it.

      Obviously, we never have the full picture, but by the looks of it, it seems to be his own decision.

      Putting Klopp in charge of recruitment with no transfer kitty….sounds like a great idea.

      The system for recruiting players has been second to none so hopefully we don't disturb that too much. Can't help but think this may be related to other changes afoot at the club.

      Some thought out there that Pep Ljinders is at the center of staff tension over various aspects of operations.

      Admittedly this is 2nd hand, but Paul Tompkins has an article pointing.out some of these conflicts without a lot of.detail.i have found him a reliable source of information over the past few years.

      For people this high up to resign, I would think it is more than just conflict, but as Huyton said, signals a new direction in recruitment. As always, time will tell.

      Thanks for this. I love Pep, would be sad if this were true.

      Maybe something has been agreed upon behind scenes in relation to the sale of the club and they've been told they aren't part of the plan going forward?

      Perhaps were seeing the future starting already, klopp doing more behind the scenes and PEP doing more from a team point of view.
