Does that happen anywhere though? It's more of a question of the other way round I'd have thought, the chairman bending the manager to their will.
It's a long shot for sure. I just feel like Levy, as cold and calculated as he is, could get caught up in the moment if some one achieved what Poch did AND was persuasive at the right moments. I feel Poch wasn't that and maybe did was he was told until he got fed up.
 
We're a pretty shit squad at the moment, to be fair. I don't know what anyone could realistically be expected to achieve. We've wasted a lot of money and haven't really competently replaced, much less improved, a single position from the 16-18 squad. We've ended up in a place where one time bench options, like Moura, are required to play a song in the first XI.

Part of it is underinvestment, but most of it is just poor talent identification and development. We've spent shedloads on players like Sanchez, Lo Celso, and Ndombele which should be forming the spine of our next generation but instead are leading the downward charge.

I suspect a top manager could paper over the cracks and maybe get us in the hunt for 4th. But all that would do is give us an excuse not to strip this team to the bones and start over. Sell anyone worth two coins.

Imagine baulking at Bruno, then spending the same on GLC.

Barking madness.
 
How would Liverpool be doing right now if Salah decided to tell his teammates he dreams of playing for another team and wants to leave. Would Liverpool fans be calling for Klopp to be replaced?

Out problem is our best player has checked out - and refuses to be dropped and subbed in games.

The cunt bragged on Sky about wanting to join City whilst we were still in with a chance of top 4.

Kane is poor, but us playing without a plan, tempo or passion is hardly his fault.

Him being completely demotivated is more than enough. Let's not make up shit though.

Liverpool? They would let someone else from their very decent squad play. Not to Sahas standard, but still the rest of the team would be the same.

Its chicken and egg.

Is Kane poor because he isn't getting service; or is Kane poor because he is no longer putting in the effort to find space and fight for balls.

Our midfielders can't pass to a forward who stands still with 2 CBs on his shoulder.

Given that we have been linked with some elite strikers over the past couple of windows (Dybala, Vlahovic, Martinez) it suggests that replacing Kane has been our priority. Not getting his move this summer its clear he has lost patience.

Yes. It did so for Liverpool, Real after Benitez, BVB, Juve (funnily enough it was Conte) etc.
 
As the CL dust lifted we needed the RB, CB, LB, DM, AM,RW and CF positions upgraded or strengthened for depth. Today we still need all of those.

Therein lies the real problem.
