Transfer record for Liverpool will define Michael Edwards' success

"Already Edwards has been assisting Ian Ayre on transfer negotiations but now it’s his baby.

From today though he takes over primary responsibility for Liverpool transfer negotiations.
"


I suppose it's a good idea to give him the January window (potentially) on his own, but whilst Ayre is still at the club. Obviously the big test comes next Summer.

Let's hope he's more like his near namesake Martin Edwards was at the Mancs, than Ayre has appeared to be on occasions.
