The biggest gap in Moshiri’s phonebook filled with oligarch cognoscenti, mega agents, mega managers and friendly journalists is a friendship with a proven, hard nosed football executive. David Dein is too close to Bill to be a candidate.
It is clear that Moshiri desperately needs to be able to send in someone proven that he trusts to look at the club top to bottom and recommend structural, governance and personnel changes.
He could use Dein or Wenger to access someone but he previously chose to go with tame novices in Sasha and the pugilistic Usmanov familiar. Will he see the need to do it differently now?
In the absence of that trusted advisor option he could go the consulting firm route but the only outfit with any significant sector depth is Deloitte and they are too close to the club and status quo to be effective.
That leaves spending significant time in Liverpool himself and talking to everyone, including fan groups not cozy with the club. If he was prepared to do that surely he would have done it by now.
All of which leaves me worried that any change will just be knee jerk and random...again.
