I'm not making any claims here, you did that when you said it was common for managers to have their personal scouts. Did you make that up or can you back it up?It is irrelevant because you are claiming our recruitment staff were ignored and Ole and Phelan were running the show. We were happy to overrule Jose, happy to renew contracts without knowing who next manager would be but powerless as soon as Ole and Phelan turned up. Makes zero sense and we’ve also now started to dismantle our Committee so makes your point even more irrelevant.
You think that question is a clever way of proving your point but it is completely misguided and pointless.
I think you'll also notice that a transfer committee doesn't exist in a head coach/DoF setup. So it's not about dismantling something that doesn't have any meaning in the context of how Liverpool and United were running their structures under the manager model.
