John W Henry will be flying into the country this week for a reported 10 day stint as he looks set to take a more hands on role with regards to what is happing at Liverpool. I am sure the main priority for Henry will be to sit down and have a chat with Kenny Dalglish as this will be the first time they will be meeting since King Kenny took over as manager.
I am sure both parties will have a lot to say to each other and one of the things Kenny will be asking from John W Henry is permission to use his cheque book to go out into the transfer market this January. We have no idea how much (if any) Henry is willing to spend on this transfer window but I am sure Kenny will let him know that there needs to be some signings.
Mr. Henry will also be tasked with appointing a new CEO on this trip. Hopefully there have been credible candidates interviewed already for the position. Celtic’s Peter Lawwell is a leading contender for the position.
Henry last saw Liverpool live against Chelsea on November 7 and I am pretty sure he will be at Anfield this weekend for the Merseyside Derby. Maybe Henry’s presence will spur the team on to a much needed win. I feel we are just one win away from a turnaround of fortunes and that win will come against Everton this weekend.
