Peter Moore has relinquished his role as CEO of Liverpool Football Club, with Billy Hogan stepping in after being tipped for the job for a while.
James Pearce has reported on the shift in personnel near the top of the club hierarchy, as the Reds enter a new era with Hogan being promoted from his previous role as managing director.
Who would you rather see start alongside Virgil van Dijk?
Moore leaves Liverpool after three years on the job and tweeted his own emotional farewell to the club. The 65-year-old has assured fans that the Merseyside outfit will be in ‘great hands under the stewardship of Billy Hogan’ in a recent post.
Thank you for all of the messages throughout the day. I want to reassure everyone that @LFC will be in great hands under the stewardship of Billy Hogan, a seasoned executive that has been integral to our success off the pitch in recent years. I will leave you with this…YNWA pic.twitter.com/sVCJ7vZFKR

Loads of Liverpool supporters have responded to Pearce’s feature with Simon Hughes, but not all of the replies are are positive. Whilst one fan has urged people to ‘keep the faith’, plenty of others have slammed Fenway Sports Group (FSG) for their quiet transfer window so far.
One fan has tweeted that FSG ‘need to go’ if they can’t facilitate a move for the likes of heavily-linked target Thiago Alcantara. The Spaniard will reportedly cost the club £26.6m but an official move is yet to be made by the Reds.

No ones asking for the players like mbappe sancho haaland who we should be going for considering we’re English and world champs we’re all asking for a 30 million world class CM if FSG can’t do that they need to go

Maybe LFC have been holding off on announcements until after Hogan took over, to give him some early credit in the bank.
Thiago wait might be until player finishes his holiday and club can literally release statement and pics of player/Melwood
