The root-and-branch American review of operations at Liverpool, which was being personally supervised on Merseyside by principal owner John W Henry yesterday, has led to the club ditching its popular weekly club magazine in favour of a monthly publication, to be published by the same London company which produces Manchester United's magazine and match programme.

Ian Herbert: A worthy attempt to raise standard of football debate

It is fair to say that Kenny Dalglish has not always been at his most engaging in front of the press. About 20 years have elapsed since an Independent football writer observed that this individual was "not a natural public relations man and will not enter into popular discussion save only to stay a shade on the acceptable side of rudeness." Extracting information has been painful at times, for reasons which are not entirely clear but have something to do with his view that his club's business is no-one else's business. Supporters say they like it that way, though they've had less to read on Liverpool since their King has come back.
