Although the system of having a group decide on who is coming and going at the club is safe, the current members are likely to be axed. The head of performance, Michael Edwards, is in danger as well as chief scout Barry Hunter and head of recruitment Dave Fallows.
This comes after assistant manager Colin Pascoe and coach Mike Marsh were removed during the inquest in to their terrible showing in the last campaign. This has surely left Brendan Rodgers in a weaker position as the former had come to Anfield with him from Swansea City.
Former players could be coming in to replace the departed duo, with Robbie Fowler, Sami Hyypia, and Jamie Carragher all linked to roles with the Reds. Ex-assistant Sammy Lee could also be in for a return to the Merseyside team.
This comes after a season in which Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League, and also crashed out of both domestic cup competitions at the semi final stage. Next time round it is likely to be even harder to break in to the Premier League top four as fierce rivals Manchester United now have European football to draw in new recruits.
