I didn't think anyone would find a negative in this. First comment after the tweet.:houllier:
We’ve been interested in Paul Mitchell in the past. Heck we even brought in Ralf for whom to continue as a consultant. We don’t want to make external appointments above management level. Accept it.

O'Boyle was an external appointment? accept it.

Ralf was a fecking train wreck, i wouldn't consult him on the hiring of a kit man

Today they showed us Sancho doing his pre pre season, I hope that was one of his mates in net because that guy looked like he couldn't even stop a timer.

Don't think there was much interest in Mitchell. Laurie Whitwell and Adam Crafton shot that down fairly quickly.

Anyone knows if he's the one in Liverpool that actually did the negotiation with other clubs on players ?

And how exactly he's going to fit together with Murtough and O'boyle ?

What is the probability that he will want to work under Murtough when can he work in any club in the world as a single DOF ? this guy has the credentials to do it.

Lee Dykes is very highly rated. Is he being linked with United or Chelsea in that story?

the ability to get transfers done? the financial backing of the manager? an understanding of where the club should be? doing a job for the huge salary being paid?
So you’ve got nothing then. The transfers are happening, and the manager is being backed with over 100 million pounds.

There’s a shitload of work going on to improve training facilities and get the club back to the forefront, and members of the old regime have been shown the door, it remains to be seen how their replacements do but that’s the case whoever comes in to any role. Patience is a virtue.

ummm, nothing has been done. where are these transfers? who has joined that I and the media have missed? where has this money been spent? going to the pub to talk to people doesn't equal doing your job to me... but thanks for popping by Mrs Arnold

So because a transfer hasn’t been confirmed that means nothing is advanced.

It’s sunny outside mate, go out and cheer yourself up, don’t bother looking at squad lists until august 1st, it’s pointless before then

really? so no need for new players to be there for pre-season training? Sorry, you obviously aren't Mrs Arnold, you are Richard Arnold. I need evidence of something being done, not your say so

Pre season is nice for them to have, but not the be all and end all. Kevin De Bruyne at City had no pre season and dominated straight off the bat in a side nowhere near where they are now. Similarly Ruben Dias walked into a side and was immediately hailed the best centre back in the world after signing from Benfica of all teams. Virgil Van Dijk went to Liverpool in January and changed the team entirely.

Pre season isn’t a necessity to a player doing well, it’s just a handy little boost. It’s pointless getting yourself worked up and stressed over anything that is beyond your control. Especially something as daft as this.

well, both City and Liverpool were in much better condition when they signed those players than we are now. but, hey ho...

The fact that we haven't signed anybody yet still tells me we're undecidive in what we want. We fail to walk away from negotiations we're losing or accept that they have won. Waiting for FdJ to be signed before anyone else is a massive risk. One that we cannot afford to take.
