      Could be one of the managers from the fall out of the Euros in the summer.

      Steve Clarke coming back to finish the job he and Kenny started at the beginning of FSG’s tenure.

      Has to be Xabi; he's tactically astute, a Liverpool legend, class all round individual, his team plays good football and he's sustaining a title challenge on a limited budget. Don't think Ange (who I like)would leave Spurs having just joined. De Zerbi..not sure tbh, don't know if he is the real deal or just flavour of the month.

      It’s Xabi Alonso no one else it’s Alonso simple as that and he will be a great manager of our club .

      The idea that great players, don't make great managers, well it's not a hard and fast rule. Kenny disproved that but yes many great players, flair players don't always have analytical or tactical minds. They very often don't know how they get to the heights they get to.

       Other small point is so many have written off Steven Gerrard that it's a little bit insulting to a genuine Liverpool legend. He might not be in the frame, we simply don't know yet. Alonso is the flavour of the month.Genuine talent there.No question, but he would be a risk as well. I would support him 100% but nothing is decided.

      It’s not insulting to write Gerrard off when he was very poor during his managerial career when he got the chance in the Prem ,

      The only reason why anyone would want Gerrard is talking from the heart only


      But I suspect they have already spoken to the person who will take over

      In fairness though, Emery was quite poor in the Prem first time round with Arsenal (not Gerrard poor admittedly) and is now being tipped as a potential target for us because he’s done well since replacing Stevie at Villa.

      But then Emery has also a much more proven record at other clubs apart from Arsenal mate.

      Emery had a proven track record before he went to Arsenal and went there with a lot of work to do

      Gerrard shouldn’t be anywhere near the job right now

      Maybe come in as an assistant to someone

      For me Stevie deserves to be in the conversation. He's done himself no favours with the Saudi connection....but that's got nothing to do with his ability, or lack thereof. He's a Red through and through, and as I've said before he may have got it wrong at Villa...but getting it wrong is how we learn how to get it right....I for one would love to see him given a chance.

      I’m not lobbying for Gerrard to get the job at this point I’m just saying Emery failed in this league first time round. And one failure shouldn’t rule anybody out.

      Likewise being successful elsewhere doesn’t guarantee success at the next job you take as Emery’s time at Arsenal shows.

      Like transfers, any managerial appointment has risk attached to it. And that’s why I’m chuffed that I don’t have to make those decisions.

      Love Gerrard but he failed miserably at villa

      Emiry is a very good manager, not great, and he showed the difference between a poor one and a very good one when Gerrard went

      Gerrard should have went to another country to rebuild and learn, or even take an assistant role with a top manager but he went to Saudi which has done nothing for his career or reputation at this stage

      I expected managers at the end of their careers to go there

      Thinking more about it, alonso seems to be the right fit reading into things

      Klopp also was at a similar club before us and the reality is whichever manager comes, as long as we give them a really good structure which is finished right now with everyone going, they hopefully should be good

      But as united for example have shown, you can get good managers but with no structure they will fail

      It’s even more important we get our transfer system up and running again to find some gems to be able to report to the new manager

      There will be a few players leaving and we need to back the new boss by addressing a couple of weaknesses which klopp has worked wonders with

      I am his biggest fan, but as I posted. Gerrard could have learned from his mistakes at villa and went to another decent league to hone his skills further but he went for the big pay packet

      If Gerrard went to Spain or even Germany, and did a good job, then that could have been his springboard to eventually end up here but he’s thrown it away imo

      He’s improving zilch in Saudi, and he should be honing his skills to compete with the big boys in a major league to prove himself and work on himself but he’s done the opposite

      Emery in his first season at Arsenal finished a place higher than Wenger in his last season and also took them to the Europa Lge final but he was never welcomed there by the fans and it didn’t take much for him to be second a couple months into his second season

      But I take the point


      Gerrard jumped from Rangers too early imo and the Villa job was wrong for him

      But I’m not a fan of him taking the Job at any stage without proving himself - Kenny was successful because of the staff behind him

      Alonso
      De Zerbi
      Postecoglou

      Klopp himself has heaped praise on De Zerbi.

      Alonso seems the logical choice and Postecoglou seems like a good shout.

      What I have read though is that FSG will hire a new sporting director first and they will hire the manager. Could be wrong, just what I read.
