Since this is the transfer window thread I thought it'd be fitting to know the people behind getting potential players for Liverpool Football club and the various scouts that watch these players

Also here is a great piece from Thisisanfield explaining the 'transfer committee' :


Here's a small bit from it -

Brendan Rodgers - First Team Manager

As Ayre explained in the Sports Illustrated interview, “He [Rodgers] has a team of people that go out and do an inordinate amount of analysis work to establish who are the best players in that position. It’s a combination of things.”

So, Rodgers briefs his team on the positions to fill, the scouting team then provide recommendations and the committee collectively value the player accordingly, in terms of value and also wages.

In an interview in March Rodgers explained his vision for the squad was to have “two players in every outfield position and your three goalkeepers. Then below that having young players who can support that.”
