FSG policy

Effective succession planning is the key to sustained growth and success for organisations of all types – and football clubs are no different. For Liverpool, I feel a disjointed approach to succession planning has led to the club’s recent on-field woes.  The model FSG had developed and put in place at Liverpool was inspired by […]

When Jurgen Klopp arrived at Borussia Dortmund, the remit was to increase stability and ensure survival within the German Bundesliga. Vast funds were not apparent, therefore smart recruiting and elite coaching were the key facets that saw tremendous success follow. That time period of approximately 7 years, saw many of the team (those that weren’t […]

The Super League, a revolutionary idea that was shunned by the masses, ill prepared for public consumption by the instigators and put back into its box for normality to resume within the elite football corridors throughout Europe. UEFA are no shining light with their failures, short comings and inability to implement Financial Fair Play did […]

A few years back now, I entertained the idea that football could soon follow American sports by essentially getting rid of transfer fees. With more and more players looking to move on free transfers, the next logical step was either inserting reasonable release clauses into every single contract or accepting that a player will be […]

When it comes to football, there are few things less interesting then examining sets of accounts. However, the audited set of figures released by Liverpool in the first week of March each year give one of the clearest indications of the off-field standing of the club and its ability to effectively challenge on the pitch.

Things have changed a lot in Liverpool football club and in football in general since Fenway Sports Group acquired the Reds back in 2010.

Mourinho. Guardiola. Conte. Wenger. Klopp. If there was an Expendables movie for football managers, it would surely include all five of these esteemed and widely respected managers, all of whom have a history of success at the top level. Yet whilst the movement of two of the most impressive managers of recent years, in Mourinho […]

“Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.” Franklin Roosevelt “Win a no-win situation by rewriting the rules.” Harvey Spector, Suits In medieval times, folk had altogether different notions of what constituted a bad person.
