    For me - seeing John and Linda on the plane with the team is hugely symbolic.

    It has taken a while longer ( we have been unlucky in that regard ) than I would have liked and FSG have had to learn on the job - but we are in an amazing position now and they derserve credit for that without doubt.

    Good article here from The Echo

    https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/liverpool-anfield-stadium-fsg-news-16374034

    It touches on a subject I first broached when FSG were first rumoured to be interested in taking over the club and have gone back to several times since.

    That with the expansion of Anfield they should do it step by step rather than build a new stadium, but in the expansion of Anfield they should turn it into a first class venue and function centre and work with the local council to vastly improve transport links and develop the surrounding areas

    One of the main focus' of mine on future expansion, step by step was to get designs in place whereby they could expand but the the design of new expansions would allow for further expansion on it at a later date.

    From a point of view of being a community club, and to help promote an increasingly vibrant and aspirational city and secure long term future local match goers, to retain Anfield's power and integrity and prevent the incredible atmosphere and support the players derive so much power from becoming too diluted by too many prawn sandwich eaters and to support and inspire local people and families who were getting increasingly priced out of watching their local team, that as part of the development stages, they should at some point create an additional 15,000-20,000 seats that at least 10,000 of were available to the less well off at reduced cost to promote all of these things, now they have the opportunity to do it and are in a financial position to do it.

    For me it's a great long term strategy and a necessary one that makes perfect business sense, it creates a highly sustainable model that will retain Anfield's power, grow the clubs status as a massive community club and bring in generation after generation of new supporters, with many of the new generation of supporters who can now afford to go to games becoming those middle aged supporters with the season tickets over time, moving to the Kop and Main stand and leaving 'the cheap seats' for the next generation. It's really vitally important that is done and to retain the incredible passion of the fans

    The other 'opportunity' I think FSG simply have to look into is youth development at a very young age, but not just the select few who are scouted or recommended, but to take that to an entirely new level. To set up a network of an initial 100 coaches, who go into schools to take not just football training, but athletics as well with kids from a very young age, focusing strongly on technique and devising a schedule that has homework also, to make the kids learn and understand different positions and roles from a very young age.

    And build sports science into this also, work out how to develop those kids that are naturally lightning quick and have great stamina so they keep those natural attributes as they grow and develop physically, as a lot of kids don't keep those things even if they regularly play sports, some kids who are incredibly naturally quick when very young actually slow down as they grow and develop, there must be a reason why, bot just how they grow, is it stretching the muscles and doing certain exercises from a young age that will help them retain that speed and perhaps get even quicker.

    The idea is to develop young footballers at all levels to a level where they can always play the game to a good standard and enjoy it, but moreso to identify the very best potential young footballers as they're developing and to identify the very best young natural athletes and get them involved in football from a very young age, and pick up the best to join an expanded Liverpool academy, sub academys if you like, across numerous areas.

    If you have 100 guys you're paying say 40k a year, it's 4 million a year, but imagine how many age groups and different schools they can be involved with and if they find just 1 each year who will go on to be a top player, with transfer fees ever increasing, it's surely got to be worth it? And all the time you're developing the process, building an incredible database and learning crucial information that's priceless. And you're going to get some of that money back anyway as there are a LOT of freelancers out there now, who run their own businesses that go into schools to offer specialist training, just do it for half their price

    In England it's a very half arsed approach to developing a far better football nation with a better understanding of the game and technical ability, on FA courses they put a big focus on the rule of 10,000 and how few touches players get in games, but they don't back that up with facilities and drills or coursework (for players) to develop that understanding and technique.

    I don't see that happening, apart from anything else when he responded to Beckenbauer's comments today Jurgen said he has a contract and five or more years down the line other coaches might have emerged, which intimates Jurgen's intending to commit to us for another 5 years and then maybe think about taking a sabbatical. You're not going to spend 4 years grafting your bollocks off, building a side into one that can dominate for at least the next 5 or 6 years from the crap he walked into initially, while the club's been built up brilliantly by FSG during the same time to support you far better in your work and leave before it even peaks.

    I think Jurgen will sign a new deal for a further 5 years initially and the love affair between himself and the club will grow ever stronger over that period and possibly see him extend again after that

    In the meantime what's important is that all the players help and teach each other as Jurgen has got them doing and bring all new players into the massive collective belief and togetherness and make that an integral part of what they do to help each other grow and develop and get through tough situations and use their personalities, experiences and beliefs to create that so when the day comes that Jurgen does eventually leave (not for a long time I hope) we'll have a squad that lives and breathes everything he brought with him and it will be ingrained in the club for decades to come, it will be 'what we do' and 'how we are'

    There's also the experience of the No6 homecoming, Jurgen himself will know that if he were to ever take a sabbatical with a view to managing another club, he'd never experience anything like he experienced on Sunday at any other club in world football, when Jurgen eventually takes a sabbatical in 5 or 6 years or longer time, I envisage he'll likely move on to National management after that
