The axe has fallen for Damien Comolli as the director of football for the Reds. He left the club by mutual consent on Wednesday.
With his departure, many have begun to grade the transfers that were made since he was named to the post in November 2010.
It's a bit of a mixed bag. The arrivals of Luis Suarez, Jose Enrique and Craig Bellamy have been successful. However, it's the high-priced transfers of Stewart Downing, Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson have drawn the most criticism.
They are a part of Liverpool's strategy to buy British players, which itself has not been popular among supporters.
Few could argue that for a combined £75 million in transfer fees Liverpool has been able to get production equal to the financial outlay.
It's fair to criticize, but the opinions have been a bit overboard, especially in regard to Jordan Henderson.
